I'm not a huge fan of the Beasties' stuff (or, frankly, or rap in general), but I thought it was a pretty decent record. It was one of those CDs where I couldn't begin to guess at what the next single might be, but Triple Trouble, Hey Fuck You!, Crawlspace and The Brouhaha were all pretty good.

Nod. Nice to hear them go back to a more old school sound (though nothing was wrong with the later albums) and give up the 15 minute slow jam sessions inspired by Tibet (ok..so maybe some things were wrong with the later albums).
It all meshes well together and the voices of the guys still rule. Good album
Paul Shaffer and the band on Letterman gave him a nice little tribute last night by playing "Rock Box" going into a commercial break. Paul and Dave talked about the times they had Run DMC on the old NBC show...nice touch, I thought.
