    Hard to listen to. The lyrics are amateurish and seem unfinished and this weakness is disguised with lots of vocal effects. Impossible to listen to this CD all the way through. "We come together like peanut butter and sandwiches", "I cuss, and grab my nuts", and "Suckers sniffing on socks, chewing on rocks" are as good as the lyrics get. The jokes aren't funny and the music is not on the level it should be. The only listenable song is the Make Some Noise single, and even that is not very good. (See the review by the Badger Herald which is suspiciously absent from the Metacrtic ranking.) Expand

    Hot Sauce Committee finds The Beastie Boys being The Beastie Boys with nothing that isn't exactly what on would expect from The Beastie Boys. [Jul 2011, p.44]

    You may not love this album, and I'm not sure I do, but you do have to respect it.

    While that post-9/11 set had a fantastic first single ("Ch-Check It Out") and nothing else close to its level, the group's latest lacks a standout track but is a consistent hodgepodge of slimy beats and no-nonsense rhyming.
