Murrow out on Avenue L. Well, we be grillin' cheese and flippin' flapjacks With the diamond stylus yo, we cutting wax We're the super elastic bubble plastic Got ethereal material that's straight up classic You try to vex reject but you should respect Or we'll have JC send you out a FedEx So don't start to flex up in the discotheque Or we'll make you extinct like a tyranosaurus rex We're gonna rock this motherfucker Like 3 the hard way We're gonna rock this motherfucker Like 3 the hard way We're gonna rock this motherfucker Like 3 the hard way 3 the hard way 3 the hard way Your rhyme technique, it is antique To all my heads, Qu'est-ce-que tu fabriques?
Que cosa fai? Como esta? Gotcha, clutch like Piazza Sneak between the sheets, so hide the matzoh Holla back challah bread Look back into the past of the Beastie Boys. Every album they released was one step ahead of the last one. Each one introduced new weirdness into their sound. TT5B shows the Beasties as what they are, mature and thoughtful, but, instead of blazing forward on the path no funk instrumentals are to be found here, no weird turntablist tricks , they retreat back to the beginning and record a classic hip-hop album.
This album absolutely glitters with Golden Age samples and sound. The overall theme is worshipping at the altar of almighty NYC; as such, this is an album that is not as universally translatable as some are. If you hate NYC with a passion or are fickle to it, this album's lyrics will not interest you in the slightest. Fortunately, you won't need the lyrics; the beats are tight and the bass is booming.
This is a classic-sounding album from the maturing Beastie Boys. It is a relatively straightforward hip-hop album, but it is fun and occasionally even thought-provoking. It seems like a lot longer than 6 years I don't think we can count sounds of science Regardless.
The thing about this CD is, it isn't all like Ch-Check it out. It has some very different beats that mixed up in my head decently after one sitting. If you like the BBoys, you will like the CD, how can you not? If you think the entire CD is like Ch-Check it out, you don't need to be listening to the Beasties anyway I don't think too many of the other songs will get very much radio play If you know the BBoys, you will know what I mean.
The songs are full of front side talking and back end stuff that makes the BBoys the BBoys. Enjoy it. Okay, the CD is good. I've always been more of a fan of the hip-hop Beasties than the punk Beasties. It's a pleasure to hear the silly rhymes again The bad is mainly that this CD musically lacks the creativity of most of their former CD's.
They could've dug a lot deeper on some of these songs, especially with six years to work with. For everyone that doesn't like the fact that they mention politics Music has always been a venue for freedom of speech and God willing it always will be.
It's one of the things that makes our country great and the Beastie Boys know that. If you were somehow unaware they were political then you've had your head in the sand or somewhere else for quite a while now. If I have to start seeing "Caution, political ideas expressed that may not agree with yours" warning stickers I'm going to be really upset One person found this helpful.
I checked out the rest of the album and it too was great. This collection of songs reminds me of when I was a teenager and listened to "License to Ill" for the first time. It has some samples and good beats, just like their breakout album.
It also helps that I'm from Brooklyn and in the first part of "The Hard Way" Adam mentions the high school we both went to. In other words, listening to this album makes me feel younger. Their genius lies in how effortlessly they can sell you on it.
Bands like Wilco and U2 have been content to leave a trail of frustrated fans in their creative wake, perpetrating one sonic reinvention after another, but the Beastie Boys seem capable of delivering the same basic product in an endless variety of nuanced packages. You can only beat up on imaginary MCs so long before you need another target. Luckily for these guys, George W.
