This album kicks off nicely with their ode to Jimi Hendrix. After the mediocre Funky Boss the songs don't stop getting better until So What'cha want. This would make a good album in and of itself, but fortunately the Beastie Boys seemingly start phase two of Check Your Head with Biz Markie for 30 seconds, then some hardcore punk Beastie style, followed by the very artsy Something's Got To Give, and on and on with odd songs that are from a multitude of genres. The samples and quotes they uses are as fitting as they are humorous. The Beastie Boys truly shine when they just whatever they think of, as opposed to their more single vein attacks like their ground breaking Liscense To Ill, or their latest (also good) album Hello Nasty. This along with Ill Communication put the Beastie Boys in their element, which I feel is with not only a DJ, but with instruments in their hands.Was this review helpful?
