Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

American bands have never got in the habit of their British counterparts, who tend to release lots of extended singles filled out with not-meant-for-prime-time experimentation. If the Beasties had got into that habit, this would be their B-side compendium: a dozen instrumental tracks showing off their groovier side, complete with plenty of wah peddle on the guitar and prominence given to frequent Beastie collaborators "Money" Mark Nishita (keyboards) and Eric Bobo (percussion). It's tough to believe that the same band is responsible for this and the Aglio e Olio EP, but it goes a long way in explaining how they've remained viable for so long. --Randy Silver

An Album that was released only in France via their Beastie Boys club, finally gets to play to a wider audience. This is a purely instrumental album that culls some of the dynamic instrumentation & Stylistic diversity found on the Beastie's albums (especially "Paul's Boutique" & "Check your Head" albums). In actual fact, there's very little in the way of traditional Hip-Hop to be found here, as Gritty Funk and loose soul grooves make up much of the running order here. If most Hip-Hop acts could put together something as Elaborately funky or as jazzily sophisticated as "Namaste", "Groove Holmes" or "Rickys Theme" more people would seek out instrumental versions of their favourite albums. This bear in mind is all the more impressive by the fact that the beastie boys actually play their own instruments (one would assume with the help of session players). For people that like funk/ Groovy Soul or actually occasionally purchase instrumental albums, this purchase is a no brainer....because it's a fantastically realised album showing the beastie boys albums were built on a strong sonic foundation. For those unsure (like I was for a brief period before contemplating buying this) dig out your old beastie boys records (more specifically "Paul's Boutique / Check your Head"),and listen to some of your favourite tracks.....could you handle listening to them without the vocals???, your answer should make the decision as to whether or not to buy the album much easier.

I love putting this disc on for people and then making them guess who the artist is - it's no surprise that 99% get it wrong! Only someone very familiar with the Beasties' "Check Your Head" would recognize the smooth grooves and funky phrasing on this CD. This is my favorite release from the Beasties, but consider that I'm more of a fan of funk than rap ("Check Your Head" was my fav. until this one came out for exactly that reason). IF YOU LOVE FUNKY JAMS (Meters, Grayboy Allstars, Medeski Martin & Wood) THEN YOU MUST OWN THIS CD! This is NOT a good overall representation of the Beasties sound, so it wouldn't be a good introduction to their music. Rather, it's a meditation on one aspect of their craft. Just like "Aglio E Olio" focuses on their prowess as punk shredmen, "The In Sound..." is a full disc of delicious vibes that is guaranteed to satisfy! As a conesseur of jam/funk music, I can say in full confidence that the Beasties' skills are top-notch - they could easily make a career of jamming like this full time! It just goes to show how talented these guys are - this is just ONE gorgeous facet of the Beastie Boys diamond!!

When I first heard the Beasties, I didnt much like their voices. Then a friend put me onto "The In Sound From Way Out", a totally instrumental compilation of songs from their various studio albums. I was blown away buy the talent of this trio and their obvious mastery of a whole range of instruments and sounds. All three Beasties can play a multitude of different instruments and they combine beautifully together to give really funky pieces that you cannot get sick of.
This is a teriffic album and made me appreciate the true musical talent these guys poses and allowed me to get into their other tunes too. Now I am a Beastie fan, owning most of their stuff and diggin there style. These guys are not just mere rappers, but very talented musicians and composers to boot. Every track is worthwhile as they showcase their abilities on a range of different instruments, producing different musical styles with a distinctive groovy, funky feel. You wont be disappointed!

My cousin said it best: "This is the perfect album. You can play it for any occasion. It's got soul if you just want to hang with your friends and talk, it's got groove if you want to put it on during a hoppin party, and it's got funk if you want to be alone with your girl in the bedroom. I play this disc more than any other." Amen, cous.
"In Sound" is a album of all instrumental music from the Beastie Boys. Part funk, part bluesy jazz, and part Beasties experimentation, it's all good. There's a track with some Tibetan monk chanting, some vaguely Zepplin tracks, and mostly funky hip-hop. It's got this "secret recording" feeling to it, because the album seemed to slip under the radar of many beastie fans. I was suprised at the musicianship of these guys, as its way better than anything they've done before. Check it.

First I must say that this album contains no rapping, no hip-hop and they only lyric on it is on the song POW, when the group says, you guessed it, "POW." This release brings together all of the instrumental songs on their previous albums and plays them with out the rap and hip-hop. This CD also displays why I like Beastie Boys, their musical talent. On most of their albums they play their own instruments, but it isn't very noticeable, this CD sticks their musical talent right in your face and says "We aren't a normal rap group, we play our own instruments. And we play them GOOD!" You are probably waiting for a description of the music on this album, well its funky, and has a bossanova type sound (I might be wrong about that). To put it simply, you can really groove to the tunes on this CD.
