Again, the Beastie Boys are phenomenal. Continuing with the "yes we play our own instruments and we're pretty damn good at it too" trend that Check Your Head introduced, the Beasties tear it up on Ill Communication. (Not to mention make the best video second to Thriller with their single Sabotage) I can see why the Beasties don't have incredible radio airplay success, their style is too diverse, not only within an album, but within one song. However, this diversity is never confusing or unsure, even when it is within an individual song. The only thing that is confusing is how they come up with their sounds and ideas. No, not confusing. Just incredible. Anyways, I love Sure Shot, Sabotage, Root Down, and the interesting Bodhisavatta Vow. (MCA continues his spiritual growth and implements it in the Beastie's sound without sounding pretentious or snide, a difficult feature.) So there it is. Buy the friggin' album already!
