I knew this album even better than I thought I did. Mid-90s staple.
I love the Beastie Boys, but here they started to dip down in quality.
For some odd reason, this album is the only record I've heard that not only tries to separate itself between two very different sets of music (almost two different albums really), but does so extremely well. The first half feels like a mix between Licensed to Ill's energy (but mellower) and Paul's Boutique's intelligence (but simpler), and done so extremely well as the first half is an absolute joy to listen to. The second half can turn a lot of people away, but for people that are fans of such things as Boutique's B-Boy Bouillabaise and Abbey Road's second half, it's a hip-hop journey and an incredible listen. The Boys know how to use their instruments, which was proven in Check Your Head, and boy do they ever use them well.
Key Cuts: Sure Shot, Root Down, Get It Together
This is the best Beastie Boys album and one of the best hip-hop albums of all time. Even the instrumentals bring something to the rest
I've heard several critics say that the 2nd half of this album isn't as strong as the 1st half. I disagree with them.
even the instrumentals are amazing. the beastie's best
The best album of the Beastie Boys!
In my opinion "Sure Shot" is their best song
"Sabotage" is the best song on this. "Get It Together" sounded like they were free-styling and Q-tip made it awkward by using the N-word in mixed company. This album must be where they really got into making the lyrics difficult to hear and understand, thus spawned the title.
This plays almost like a b-side to Check Your Head. It doesn't hang together quite as well but contains some of the Beasties best material.
A bit long, but there are too many great songs to fault it. The Scoop is a personal favorite.
