    Well, mostly... the slow tracks kind of blow.

    Side D is horrible to be honest. The rest is delicious. Especially the first few songs.

    Conidering this album doesn't use anywhere near as much sampling as the albums before it, I think it's absolutely fantastic. I wish towards the end of the album there wasn't a bunch of slow tracks just slapped on the end however.

    Not entirely sure why this doesn't get the same sort of acclaim as Paul's Boutique? It's not a landmark album in the same respect, but I think they're the most similar in style and... audacity? I think this is the Beasties' Sandinista. A LOT of songs, a couple of which are instant classics / hits, and a lot of hidden gems and songs which grow on you over time. Love it.

    This album is mindblowingly good. It's impossible to stay in a bad mood after putting it on. They sorta fell off after this one, but every record they put out was still good. Everyone gets into an artistic slump eventually for one reason or another. For a band that was together as long as they were, their last couple albums were great.
