Loves Album
 
Hello all, new poster here. As they say, long time listener first time caller. Just wanted to say I love the new album and the interview here on the site is funny.

The New York Times had a "critics notebook" in it Monday, October 11th. The critic compares LL Cool J and The Beastie Boys recent concerts in New York. Kelefa Sanneh(the critic): "the album also includes some of the worst Beastie Boys songs so far, and it was responsible for most of Saturday's low points" also referred to "Right Right Now Now" as "a hackneyed, flat-footed protest rap" He goes on to say how they praised the DJ instead of themselves and they shouldn't have...blah blah and Beastie Boys no longer attract women. Just wondering if anyone read the article and what you thought about it.



P.S. So hoping to catch the Michigan show on the 5th of November ;)

In reply to this thread, i wanna say firsty that i really like TT5B. However, the songs become a little repititous at times apart from a few stand out songs like Triple Trouble and the Brouhaha. Every song has a drum beat usually around the same tempo, very clean, crisp ryhming, great lyrics but the album overall is a little flat. Compared to Hello Nasty, the music is a little boring, nothing out of the blew, nothing stupid or funny. A more sensible record. Despite this, the album is great to listen to in the car i think, phat beats and tight ryhmes.

I like the fact that TT5B, is an album about expressing yourself in an open and (freedom of choice) manner. I may agree with how the Beasties go about expressing themselves and using unnecessary examples.

I am just happy with the fact they are sending more stimulating rap in the world! Though, I do and don't like hearing the politics. See it may not offend much what their views are on some things because I may agree. However, they are things I may not agree with and is put off by! So, I can see how this may come into play because I can look at it from both angles.

Honestly, I rather hear beasties talk about real life matters and issues. Then, bit$&%& and hoe$ like SNoop Dogg. He has to be the most stupid, ignorant, whorish, backwards, low on vocab ba$tard I have seen in my life.

His so pathetic, that I don't think he can even stand himself. That is why he is an anoexric bitc^. Afterall, even he calls himself a dog and a ni@@er.


Firstly get a day job. You talk to much about shit, get a Job on 4 corners or something. You make a good point about snoop dog and you made me laugh.

You get the gold star for lamest cliche with that bridge shit kid.

Also that chemo comment was a low blow, just cause they do yoga
and are gray haired you wanna break bad on their appearances.
Wait 'til your half dead ass is all growed up and 40. You might end up
looking kinda haggard.

You're right though, you are entitled to your opinion. Just like I am.

I dig the Beasties getting up and saying something with gravity.
fuck all this played out bullshit people are rapping about these days.
I will always listen to them because of their unique blend of pure emcee
style, political commentary, crowd hyping, throwback rhyme style and
the fact that their relationship has never strained and the result is dope
album after dope album.

My beef with To The Five Boroughs is the production, the switch from
Caldato's production technique to more computer based work with Duro
is very inorganic and a huge split from their trademark sound from '98 and
earlier. 6 years was way too long to wait and the new album was an instant
classic, but I'd like to see a return to that style I described.

In regards to the quote in the Times from Kelefa Sanneh, that dude
should be blacklisted from rap reviews, he both talks and writes about it in a
very out-of-touch, mechanical manner, and never strikes me as a hip
hop fan.

For basically any beastie boys album you have to be in a certain mood to listen to them. For example right aobut now and for the past few days i have been in the mood to listen to ill communications last week i felt like TT5B. Its all a matter of what era you are feeling

i agree... i sat down the other day and listened to hello nasty from begin to fin and it made me wish that mario c was at the boards to filter the great concepts of 5 buroughs. the production on 5 has a lifeless feel to it. the boys live show is stronger than ever, and mike d comes with some wicked rhymes but the new record is only okay, in my opinion. oh yeah... where was the BIZ!!!

now thats jus plain unfair. The whole point of a message board is for people to post their views and opinions on stuff and discuss it with everyone else, Not to give a fair opinion and have everyone who doesnt think that way bicker and squable like school kids. this has happened on every board ive ever bin a meber of, and theres always been a post like this, reminding people what a board is and that other peoples opinions count even if u dont share the same view...but hold up...if i dont like it then dont post here, correct?

:rolleyes:

Personally, I think TT5B is a gorgeous album. Sure, It's not the Beastie Boys' best ever offering (Paul's Boutique is actually the greatest album of all time), but refreshing and funky nonetheless. My only gripe with TT5B is that it's way too short. Each time the record ends, I'm so hyped up for more. Another 15 minutes would have done me nicely.

i like TTFB alot cause i live in the UK and bought it when i was in manhattan on holiday so all i had was my discman and ttfb and it was ace.

woulda been cool to have a few instrumentals in there, though thinking about it im not sure if it would have blended very well with the rest of the songs.

dont know why. anyway- PEACE!

maaaaaaaad MC's kick the government's testicle's
the govnt defly needs a tune up, they just making it clear
they might be gettin old,...but it doesnt show, and MCA's had gray hair since he was like 12 so who cares

the albums exist on some kind of parabola
if this is the last and u only count the basic albums
license to iLL and TT5B....all rappin tracks
paul's boutique and hello nasty, far too complex to ever be appreciated and similar with mass amounts of variation
iLL Comm. and Check your head, 20 tracks each instrumentals and raw funk beats
i dont know but i always noticed this strange pattern
