  • first times i listened to this album i didnt liked, and never listened to it again cause is saw many people with not very good opinions like me. heard it again a while ago and i loved it, its a total grower, not my fave compared to their other albums, but it ain't bad, totally ain't bad
  • no it isn't. it's not exceptional, it's middling. i really digged it when it was released but havent listened much, or, at all, since. I still like just blaze's remix of check it out though.
  • Wow. This is *awful*.
  • If you ignore the outdated and kind of shallow political messages, it's a pretty good album. Way more stripped down than the two "main" albums that come before and after it. I like Hello Nasty and Hot Sauce Committee more than this, but it works as a little detour and tribute to old-school hip-hop.
  • Ha, imgettinglastfm's posts just show how few people are commenting on this album. Honestly it's one of my most listened to Beastie Boys albums, and probably the one I enjoy the most. It has a very unified sound, and all three of them let fly with some of their most original rhymes. Mike D especially owns this one.
  • This one is it. 5 years straight of commenting on it, but this is another special one. Here it goes. I've listened to this for the first day of school for 10 years straight now, I think. And this is the final one, my last complete school year. Incredible. Thank you so much, Beastie Boys.
  • It's really good. Just open your heads... or check them and stuff.
  • ...meh
  • I think this album is really good.
  • You know how it goes, I've listened to this for the first day of school for 9 years straight now, I think. But this is a very special one... R.I.P. Adam "MCA" Yauch :(
