If you're considering buying this, just stop. BUY IT! It's simply amazing. The Beastie Boys still sound fresher than a moist towelette. Every single rap group that has tried to recreate their distinctive freshness and pure NY spirit of hip-hop has FAILED and you realise this when you listen to this new album. Mix Master Mike is a genius on the turntables, and he has been given much more creative freedom on this record. Hello Nasty seems almost a diversion compared to this album. Musically it is more in line with Ill Communication and Check Your Head, and this is a good thing if you like those records. There is so much spirit in this album, and you can really feel the Beastie Boys just being their best. Simply awesome.

15 tracks, 44 minutes tells you that things are kept short and snappy - in more ways than one. The Beastie Boys 6th album is full of bass heavy beats, many old school, right back to a frenetic cut up of Rappers' Delight, with Mixmaster Mike living up to his billing as the world's greatest turntable maestro thanks to an album chock full of superb cut ups. Gaps between tracks are practically non existant, and with the pace kept up it feels like a well executed whole. The Beastie Boys themselves have a lot to say, some of it firmly with tongue in cheek, some with a serious message, but this is packed to the gunnels with intelligent lyrics evidenced by the tiny print in the not insignificant fold out booklet. The interplay between Adam Horovitz, Mike Diamond and the sadly taken from us Adam Yauch is stunning. Personal standouts for me are "Triple Trouble", "3 The Hard Way" and "The Brouhaha", but then this is an album that doesn't disappoint in the slightest in its entirety.

Probably the album i've most anticipated in as long as i can remember. But, yay The wait is over! But sadly i really don't think its been worth the wait or anticipation. Its not that it is a bad album, cuz it ain't, its just that it don't have that edge that all other B-Boy albums did. I've tried and i've tried to get into it, listening to it countless times since i got it. But it still manages to be forgettable and altogether not that interesting or fun at all. Maybe i'm missing something cuz a lot of people seem to love it to bits and i have a friend who rates it over 'Licensed to Ill' and 'Pauls Boutique', which i personally can't even begin to understand.
Another flaw i i think is the 'Over Political' lyrics. I got no probs with Politics in music, but most of this seems forced and in one ear out the other messages. Ad-Rock eaily pulls it off the best, with his smooth flowing rhymes, not to say Mike n Adam have lost it tho.
Now for a positive side! ;) The beasties have come along and produced another album that sounds nothing like anything else they've done. Barre 'Ill Communication' n 'Check Your Head' it seems to be something they are good at. I think this whole album is all processed sounds, which is an interesting step, they just don't pull it off too good. Worth a shot tho i guess.
Its my least fav B-Boy album, i'd prob even put on 'The In-Sound From Way Out' before i put this on. But Hey don't take my word for it, buy it, DL it, whatever, see what ya think. If you are new to the beasties, check 'Pauls Boutique' out first cuz buying 'TT5B' could fool you into thinking they are less good than they actually are.
