Remember when Zack was supposed to be releasing a solo album sometime in the near future? Good times.

He had that song come out a year or so ago that wasn't any good. Probably had to go back to the drawing board for another five years.

Never actually got around to listening to that track. Actually I'll probably do that now.

But yeah, for me Zach de la Rocha being virtually radio silent during a period where we've really needed voices like his the most, save for a few RTJ album cameos (who, let's face it, have pretty much filled the musical void Rage occupied), is one of the most disappointing musical events in recent memory.

Yup verb, you're correct; that Zach track is is one big piece of "meh."

Team Strat. Forget the league, Run the Jewels aren't even playing the same sport as RATM.

Rage had their time. Their brand of music is a young man's game. To me, the explanation for the band not being active is that Zach understands and respects that it would ring hollow.

Anyone ever notice how in the Aughts, Zach only ever wears that rose colored button up shirt? That's kind of weird, right?

he needs to just release that goddamn thing

Quote:
from wikipedia:

Following the disbandment of Rage Against the Machine, de la Rocha worked on a solo album he had been recording since before the band's dissolution, working with DJ Shadow, El-P, Muggs, Dan The Automator, Roni Size, DJ Premier and Questlove with production partner James Poyser.[16] The album never came to fruition, and de la Rocha started a new collaboration with Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, in which around 20 tracks were produced.[17] Reznor thought the work was "excellent",[17] but said the songs will likely never be released as de la Rocha was not "ready to make a record" at that time.[18] On working with DJ Shadow and Reznor, de la Rocha admitted in a 2008 interview that:

“ When I left Rage... first off, I was very heartbroken, and secondly, I became obsessed with completely reinventing my wheel. In an unhealthy way, to a degree. I kind of forgot that old way of allowing yourself to just be a conduit. When I was working with Trent and Shadow, I felt that I was going through the motions. Not that what was produced wasn't great, but I feel now that I've maybe reinvented the base sounds that emanate from the songs.[19]


his version of 'going through the motions' with DJ Shadow and Trent Reznor in the early 2000's is probably better than 97% of the music that has been released by everyone on planet earth since 2000

Surprisingly I've found myself digging most of the new stuff that Prophets have bought out
