I Spent Five Minutes Thinking of a Title and This is the Best I Could Come up With

Man, the week just flies by doesn’t it? I realize I have not been posting as much as usual lately, but life has been pretty hectic. Everything returns to normal next week though, so expect more quality (and not quality) content coming soon.

Until then, fucking Beastie Boys are dope, yo.

Beastie Boys
Get It Together (A.B.A. Remix)
Get It Together (A.B.A. Instrumental)
Three MC’s And One DJ (Live Video Version)
Negotiation Limerick File (Handsome Boy Modeling School Remix)
Body Movin’ (Kut Masta Kurt Remix Instrumental)
Negotiation Limerick File (Accapella Wet)
Can someone please tell me that the new Beastie Boys’ album is good? I want to buy it, but holy shit To the 5 Boroughs was trash.

Recently the Beasties re-issued their classic work in deluxe editions with bonus tracks and remixes, which makes it hard for people like me to find truly “rare” tracks. I guess these remixes were on the cutting room floor for those deluxe editions though, as they remain rarities as far as I can tell. I could be wrong though. I swear some release in the past had the video version of “Three MCs and One DJ.” Am I just imagining thing? Wouldn’t be the first time. Knowing me my intuition is probably flipped, that’s the only track that’s actually rare, and the rest are all on iTunes somehow and I missed them.

Hey, if I am wrong do me a favor, tell me. But don’t be a dick about it. I appreciate knowledge directed towards me in a non-dickish manner.

The remixes of “Get It Together” are from a 12″ single for the track, and the rest are from an odd vinyl EP called “Scientists of Sound – The Blow Up Factor Vol. 1.”

    I think(as i’m 2 lazy 2 look in the loft!) there was a 12” with the video version of ‘3 MC’s & 1 DJ’. If i remember right that was why i bought the 12”,not 4 the A side. I have a DVD of Beastie Boys & if u leave it long enough it plays a song(‘That’s All There Is’ i think!).Was that released? Also i have a promo CD single of ‘Right Right Now Now’-was that released?

    Buy the new Beasties, way better than the last one, which was really crappy. Now they’re getting’ back to the old school. For me it sounds as a mixture of “Paul’s Boutique” (their best in my opinion) and “Hello Nasty”!

    Definitely get the new Beastie Boys album. It’s a great mixture of all their sounds. I especially enjoy the tracks that remind me of Check Your Head era Beasties.

    You’re completely right… “To the 5 Boroughs” was super-lame. But, the newone is awesome. Dope on a rope. Highly recommended.

    Love their new album. I agree with buzzstein it seems like a mixture of all their sounds but reminds me more of their early stuff. Hence the Fight for your Right revisited(??)
