AllMusic Review by

On their debut album, Moment of Clarity, EDL establish themselves on the party-hearty end of the rapcore spectrum, away from the political tirades of Rage Against the Machine and more towards Kid Rock or the over-the-top aggression of Limp Bizkit. The band is quite energetic, with a sense of humor likely to please rap-metal's core audience of white teenage males, as well as a funk-metal acumen by way of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. While (like most rapcore bands) their stabs at full-fledged funk can sometimes sound stilted or heavy handed, that's not where their true sensibilities lie -- their Chili Pepper-esque hyperactivity and jumpy backbeat are mostly employed in the service of uptempo, testosterone-loaded hard rock. Their riffs and melodies are sometimes underdeveloped, but there's enough potential on Moment of Clarity to indicate that with a bit more songwriting prowess, the band could move to the forefront of their subgenre.
