Beastie Boys

If you want to listen to an album that will teach you all you need to know about the Beastie Boys without buying a Best Of then their latest is a great purchase. All the influences that have touched this band are on parade on the album. The album is full of percussion, bouncy grooves, dub beats, dancehall, and yes, even whistles. It is completely instrumental focusing on drums, guitar and bass rather than the Boys zany rhymes. The 12 tracks are completely original with no sampling of previously recorded material. It is most certainly not their strongest outing, but one that gives you an inkling into what kind of music they like as a band.
