Hey, it's almost Friday, so be happy people....or else;)
So it's been awhile since I did a Top 5 song album review right? Sounds about right.
Well today you're in for a treat then, as I'll be picking my top 5 songs from the immensely popular Beastie Boy album, Hello Nasty.
Now this particular album was somewhat of a major departure from their previous albums, as they tended to experiment more with other genres of music, like electronica and what/s now referred to as Dub-Step.
So away we go.....
5). "Picture This"
This is the type of song, that upon first listening, you're all like, "Did I just switch CD's and not even notice it?"
No sir or ma'am, it's the same cd, they just let some nice-sounding chick sing on the track. I think it's pleasant and not at all off-putting. Relaxing even.
4)."Putting Shame In Your Game"
You know of the major reasons why I respect the Beastie Boys is that they can reference and name drop fellow MC's and famous songs, but it seems genuine because they grew up on that stuff. And they were also part of that era or damn close to it. So it's not they like just looked the stuff the up and decided to show off how smart they were for knowing that material.
Plus, as in all their work, they showcase so well why these white boys from Brooklyn rap so well.
3). "Three MC's and One DJ"
This one's self-explanatory, but damn do they rock the mic on this one!
"3 MC's and one DJ
2). "Body Movin' "
Love this one, and yes Super Disco Breakin' sounds very similar to this, I just dig this one more.
"Body movin', body, body movin', A-1 sound and the sound so soothing"
Yes, yes it is;)
I shouldn't even have to explain why this one's tops in my book(did I just say tops?)
If the kick-ass song and lyrics don't do it, the video sure as hell does, sealing the deal on an awesome, awesome song.
Plus, come on.....it's fucking catchy as hell;)
Other tracks I recommend:
-"Song For Junior" - It samples Santana's "Oye Como Va" but doesn't come off as fake or just sampling the song because the beats cool. Although it really, really is.
-"Just A Test" - Want to hear a song that represents your area code, if you're living in the 212? This song's for you and it doesn't get annoying. Promise;)
-Uh, how about the rest of the freaking album? Seriously, listen to it if you already haven't.
