I'm a huge proponent of the Beastie's but was disappointed by this lackluster effort. I was under the impression that the instrumentals included on the cd were extended versions of past efforts, but I was mistaken. The instrumentals were just taken from their respective cds and plopped all on one disc. If you're reading this review, you're on the internet, and I'm sure that you have a cd burner. Save yourself some money, and just burn all the instrumentals from the Beastie's cds yourself. Five Boroughs had better be off the chain, but I have mad faith that they'll represent and make me forget all about this rip off of a product.

for the beastie boys fan, this is a must have. you will have numerous instrumental tracks that follow the beastie's funkier more chilled out side. this is quite a good album to just hang out to. nothing hyper here at all. this album will NOT get your party crazy, but a worthwhile listen nonetheless.

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.

...is write and play groovy instrumental music. The material on this disc is diverse, ranging from funky (in that 70's porno vibe kinda way) to latin-fluenced (in a good way, not the Ricky Martin way) to sleepy sitar grooves. All in all it's really chilled out collection of hip (can't stress that enough) easy listen' tunes. If this sounds even remotely like what your looking for, I think you'l be pleased.

i never considered myself a fan of the b-boys work until a friend put on ill comunication. i liked it more than i thought, and i really loved the instrumental tracks. soon i got that cd, and it became one of my favorites. when i heard about this cd, which was all the instrumental tracks i love so much i had to get it, and i was not dissapointed. u may not think the beasties got the funk, but oh how wrong u are.
