Anniversary album: CHECK YOUR HEAD
Released: 21 April 1992 – 30 years ago, today.
AllMusic said: “It’s how the old school raps give way to fuzz-toned rockers, furious punk, and cheerfully gritty, jazzy jams. As much as Paul’s Boutique, this is a whirlwind tour through the Beasties’ pop-culture obsessions, but instead of spinning into Technicolor fantasies, it’s earth-bound D.I.Y. that makes it all seem equally accessible — which is a big reason why it turned out to be an alt-rock touchstone of the ’90s, something that both set trends and predicted them.” Score: 5/5
TUTV: When playing Beastie Boys one thought pops up “dearly missed“.
