Too Much Can Make You Ill�
on 16 November 1999
I must admit I willingly bought this CD all excited about revisiting the raw appeal of the Beastie Boys which I so enjoyed years ago. I quickly discovered this isn't a timeless classic at all, it is very much music for the time, and I hate to admit it, but I've grown out of it. The crass, in your face sound of the Beastie Boys becomes too much on a whole album of nothing but their street adaptation of rap. I still enjoy a few (very few) songs, every now and then like "Paul Revere" and "Brass Monkey". But I have completely lost any potential interest in most of their other songs such as "Girls", "You Gotta Fight For Your Right To Party", "Hold it Now Hit It"...and many more empty tunes. I think this piece of the past was better left there, in the past.
