1998 reissue on vinyl LP. Many fans and critics declare ''I Against I'' as Bad Brains' masterpiece. More than just hardcore punk and reggae, it is a very tight album that infuses soul, funk and heavy metal. The message of the album cohesively ties all of the musical and lyrical themes together, and it is a real crowd pleaser. The title ''I Against I'' plays on the Rastafarian slang ''I and I,'' which is a first-person plural reference to the union of the speaker, his audience and God. In addition to being a critical success, this album was Bad Brains' biggest commercial success and saw hits with the songs ''I Against I,'' ''House of Suffering,'' ''Secret 77'' and ''She's Calling You.''
