An amazingly eclectic collection of tunes that range from punk, hip hop, jazz and everything else thats good with music. It may sound like a mess at first, but with a few listens it becomes apparent how good an album this is. There is something for everybody, and its one of the few COMPLETELY original albums that you will ever hear. It's as funky as hell, yet it rocks like a violent beast. I have no idea what the Beasties were on when they created this masterpiece BUT I WANT SOME!!!!!!

This album like alot of the greatest albums is a grower.I liked it on first listen back when it first came out but over time this has elevated beyond just me liking it.It is up there maybe even better than Paul's boutique.It's also completely diffirent to the first 2 beastie' albums.Alot more mature lyrically but also musically.This has alot in common with 'ill communication' sonically but if they had come out the other way around I would say this is a perfected version of that style of soundscape.This isn't just a great hip hop album.It's a truly great album period!Not many crews achieve more than one masterpiece but along with Paul's boutique this is definitely another on that level of quality.This should always be played from start to finish when possible!r.i.p MCA

God, this CD is awesome. The first time I heard it, I thought it was awful. Then I heard "So What'cha Want" on a stereo in Camden Market three years later, and the full genius of 'Check Your Head' became apparent.
"Gratitude", "Time for Livin'" and "So What'cha Want" just totally rock, 100% full of punk attitude, while "Pow", "In 3's" and "Namasté" (which all made it onto the later chill-out BB bits-and-pieces album "The In Sound From Way Out") show how competent these guys had become, even in 1992.
Which isn't to say "Paul's Boutique", "Ill Communication" or "Hello Nasty" are lesser works - they're extremely accomplished too.

Let me put it simply: THIS IS THE BEST RECORD THE BEASTIES HAVE EVER DONE.
Unbeatable, unforgettable, unputdownable!
This is the bomb, buy this album right now and forever live knowing you bought one of the greatest albums of all time.
From the opening 'Jimmy James' (dedicated to Hendrix) to the closing mysterious and inventive 'Namasté', this album is a masterpiece.
The best tracks undoubtably are 'So What'cha Want', 'Gratitude' and 'Something's Got to Give', but all the songs are top notch.
I love the way the cover has the boys doing the See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil thing. Its the coolest album cover I've ever seen.
'So What'cha Want' is my second favourite Beastie Boys song (just behind 'Intergalactic'). Buy this album now.
P.S. Please visit [...] for some great music. Keep rockin with the sure shot yall!

This is beastie boys perfection. One of their best albums (along with the very different, but very brilliant pauls boutique).

This is more musical and a little more mature than its predecessors, this is also more varied in styles, playing with punk, hip hop and jazz-funk. It's a formula that could easily have gone wrong, but somehow delivers brilliance. There are not really any standout highlights on this for me - the whole album, as a whole, just works brilliantly. It shares its place with Paul's boutique on my top list of favourite albums.

Get the vinyl, too - although it is split over 2 x 180g records (which I find very slightly annoying), it has a good sound and an excellent inner sleeve photo of the boys jamming in a cramped studio. Besides, as the boys themselves state on this album: "I still listen to wax, I'm not using the CD"...

Probably the Beastie Boys' best album (along with Paul's Boutique), but the remastering has not made ANY difference to the original recording! Worth getting if you're a newcomer or a completist; disc two is very good.

Released back in 1992 this was the Beasties third album proper and showed a slight change in direction for the Brooklyn Trio. From the opening 'Jimmy James' this album just screams of coolness and like all their albums has stood the test of time remarkably well. Funk filled tracks such as 'Funky Boss' and 'In 3's' showed a more mature change of direction from their beer swilling, naked go go dancer days of the 80's. There's also the fantastic 'Time for livin' a storming thrash punk track, they would repeat this formula both on the 'Ill Communication' and 'Aglio E Olio' EP. But by far the standout track of this album is the amazing 'Gratitude' with the most amazing fuzz bass ever. The Beasties are always considered as the most cool and well respected bands around at the moment, in fact it's them them along with Run DMC who are considered as the main influence of the 'Nu Metal' mixture of Rock and Hip-Hop. This cd is an absolute MUST for any respectible record collection and will increase your coolness by at least a million!
