The In Sound From Way Out - Vinyl Reissue

American bands have never gotten in the habit of their British counterparts, who tend to release lots of extended singles filled out with not-meant-for-prime-time experimentations. If the Beasties had gotten into that habit, this would be their B-side compendium. Originally released through the Beastie Boys' French fan club, The In Sound From Way Out! is a collection of the group's funky instrumentals from Check Your Head and Ill Communication, with a couple of new tracks thrown in. The Beasties have a flair for loose, gritty funk and soul-jazz, and the stuttering, greasy keyboards of Money Mark give the music an extra edge - he helps make the music sound as authentic as anything from the early '70s.

Six years after "Hello Nasty", an older, wiser and entirely essential Beastie Boys re-emerged with "To The 5 Boroughs", a passionate love letter to NYC written in the wake of 9/11. As usual they deliver their irrepressible tag team rhymes, mixing up celebrations of their home city with witty put downs of George W and his policies, and of course their usual stoopid bragging, but this time dropping them over stripped down backing tracks, that give a nod to the past (check "Triple Trouble" with its Sugarhill Gang samples), while obviously being influenced by hip hop and R'n'B's more recent electronic styles.  Four singles were released from the album, "Ch-Check It Out", "Triple Trouble", "An Open Letter to NYC", and "Right Right Now Now", but it's very difficult to choose a favourite on this career highpoint.
