And they do!

They just don't stop.

The smile that spread across my face as I listened to this album for the first time was undeniable. As a Beastie fan dating from '92, I'm always nervous when a new release by them falls out of the sky. It seems pre-determined that as modern musical artists age, their work tends to decline. I can't say that the Beastie Boys are completely devoid of this, as it really does appear as though their *best* days are behind them. On the flip side of that, they aren't getting lazy, and they aren't simply relying on their name and past glory to get them through current releases.

To The 5 Burroughs was an album that, while good, fell into a bit of a niche. It had a strong political influence (being released in a pivotal election year), that was surrounded by dry, bottom-ed out, depressing beats (a style that was being used by MANY artists at the time.) While the album had plenty of highlights, it also featured a, what I would call, repetitive identity. It's hard to argue against the album being motivated by America's breach of security in the 9/11 attacks, and the seriousness of all of this that propagated the somewhat down-beat feel of this album. What most bothered me was the fact that Mix Master Mike put his stamp on 1998's Hello Nasty and, truly, became a member of the group. Like Slug and Ant in Atmosphere, MMM and the Beastie Boys just molded perfectly. That element seemed lacking on 5 Burroughs, and I can't help but feel somewhat disappointed by it because of that fact.

But fear not - because MMM is studio prominent once again!

What I can say about Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 is this - you haven't heard a Beastie Boys album that sounds like it.

THAT'S GOOD NEWS PEOPLE!

Let's be honest, there aren't too many artists that can span three decades let alone make a profound impact on the world of music. These dudes were rapping back when hip-hop was just popping off! The Beastie's are a mixed bag. From party pioneers to doody-rhyme mad scientists, liberal social commentators that to this day can still sell out Madison Square Garden in minutes . The lyrical writing is fun like 'Pauls Boutique' , vocals tracked distorted and grimy like 'Ill Communication' layered over electronica a la 'Hello Nasty' with their heaviest hitting beats since 'Check Your Head.' As a matter of fact, I'd say this is their most hip-hop sounding album since their 92-94 era; A Fantastic Beastie Boys record!

If any fears lingered that the instrumental only album "The Mix-Up" was a sign of The Beastie Boys getting mellow in their old age, then "Hot Sauce Committee Part Two" should put those fears to rest. Kicking off with their most infectious jam since "Intergalactic", this latest collection of songs finds the Boys sounding more alive and kicking than ever, acknowledging their age and longevity while still reveling in the occasional immature moment that makes them so much fun.
Live instruments dominate- snare drums, fuzzy bass, electric guitar, mixed with an odd assortment of electronic noises and DJ scratching. After the club rocking opener "Make Some Noise", "Nonstop Disco Powerpack" lays down a simpler James Brown-styled funk beat over which the Boys re-introduce themselves, urging one another to "Step up and grab the mic". The rhymes come fast and furious- some brilliant, some throwaway- but rapid enough to make you know you missed some and need to listen again. "OK" sounds like a late '70's Gary Numan track re-mixed by the Chemical Brothers. "Say It" is drenched in distorted bass, white noise, and random electronic noises that may or may not be a clue to the state of mind the Boys were in when the track was recorded. "Lee Majors Come Again" injects the Blitzkrieg Bop with a healthy dose of punk and helps close out the latter half of the album on an aggressive note similar to the one that kicked it off.

I've been down with these cats since their single "SHE'S ON IT" back in 1985, and it's great to see these B-BOYS still wreckin' shop on the mic! What makes this release so dope is their tight flows, and ILLMATIC style and delivery that they are known so well for. Like on the tracks: "MAKE SOME NOISE" and "THE LARRY ROUTINE".The music on this release is close in sound to another FRESH album:"HELLO NASTY", in the way that it has more of an electronic sound to the beats and grooves.Such as on the track: "TADLOCK'S GLASSES".Make no mistake however,MCA,MIKE D and AD ROCK still "FREAK THE FUNK" on this release,check out the joint: "FUNKY DONKY". The style on this album is that of an east coast old school party club sound,the song in this case: "DON'T PLAY NO GAME THAT I CAN'T WIN" featuring: SANTIGOLD comes to mind. They even throw in an old-school PUNK ROCK track, and a fusion JAZZ(which isn't my favorite)cut into the mix. This release is different than other BEASTIE BOYS albums, but they still rep with that same flava that made them one of the funkiest HIP HOP bands ever.I still prefer the sound that DJ HURRICANE had with them from: 1986 thru 1994, but the fact that these three live Jews from my old town called NYC, can still rep after all of this time, says a lot about them as true HIP HOP SOLDIERS! The beats and grooves on this new joint are funky as hell,and their DJ, MIX MASTER MIKE is one of the baddest in the game! Buy this record if you still appreciate that old school, east coast funky street sound, when HIP HOP was still about having a good time.This album is like a breath of fresh air compared to what is being put out in HIP HOP today.It should not be a surprise, these dudes came up in the golden age of HIP HOP on DEF JAM with cats like: RUN DMC,PUBLIC ENEMY,LL COOL J,Rick Rubin,Russell Simmons, and toured with WHODINI.HIP HOP doesn't get better than that, WORD UP! RIP to my man MCA, much love and big props to a dope MC.
