AllMusic Review by

Rap/heavy metal band Biohazard occupies an urban war zone, to hear them tell it, in which, at any moment, a gun can be thrust in your face, a five-block walk to the subway is a gauntlet, and even if you make it to the station, someone may push you onto the tracks. Understandably, the boys are upset about all this, and they express their anger in shouted, profanity-filled lyrics, pounding rhythms, and raging guitar lines. But they don't bring any particular insight to their observations, and their musical approach, but for the occasional piano interlude, is near-generic. [In addition to the CD and cassette formats, State of the World Address was released on LP, pressed on orange vinyl, in a clear plastic sleeve.]
