What a let down..,
This review is from: To The 5 Boroughs (Audio CD)I'm really reluctant to write a bad review, but this album is frankly poo compared to their other work.
First track and single 'Check it out' is funky, funny and represents everything good about the Beasties.
After that the album falls apart spectacularly!
Mediocre, uninspired samples and mixes.
Lyrics and rhymes that remind me of my efforts as a teenager. Worst of all are the earnest political messages, which, whilst I wholeheartedly endorse, seem clunky and almost irritating in this context.
It gets two stars instead of one 'cos I love 'Check it out'...
