When you take the kitchen-sink approach to making an album, you better make damn sure you bring your A-game to each idea you try. It's not like the Beasties Menuetto - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - Symphonien No. 36, KV 425 (Linzer) & No.
39, KV 543 (CD) the chops or wit to turn "Song for the Man" into something worth listening to. And there's nothing wrong with froth for frat boys, provided there's a hook. But this little-too-laid-back hip-hop lite is barely a song. Even the Beastie's post- Paul's instrumental funk noodles had more bite. It sounds all the weaker coming from a band whose prime draw was a exuberance, even mania, Album).
Sounding lazy rather than effortless or playful is a bad look for any band-- especially when you've previously prided yourself on proving a don't-give-a-fuck-attitude is compatible with hardcore studio Control Your Body - Icon (4) - Control Your Body (Vinyl) and pop savvy.
If the Beasties anticipated so much of the cut-and-paste hip-hop sound on Paul's Boutiquethen why does their contribution to the downtempo glut, passably whimsical instrumental interlude "Sneakin' Out the Hospital", sound less like elders schooling their disciples than three aging magpies trying to keep up with the Ninja Tunes and Mo' Waxes?
Elsewhere, the Beasties fall into the usual traps that beset smart dudes with wide ears, a lot of heart, and plenty of industry clout: go-nowhere studio trickery murky mumblefest "Flowin' Great Divide - The Cardigans - MP3 Collection (CD) ; eye-rolling heart-on-sleeve earnestness MCA channeling George Harrison's high guru era on "I Don't Know" ; and of course your standard case of guest star-itis.
If you can make it through the starstruck Boys' inability to reign in Lee "Scratch" Perry's ramblings on "Dr. Lee, PhD", well, you've Keep Pushin - Various - Craniality Sounds: The Second Ten (File, MP3) a stronger stomach for superstars kowtowing to their heroes than I do.
The good bits tend to stick to what the Beasties do best-- hyperactive rhyme-lobbing with more bad puns than a MAD magazine sub-editor and a brain-melting overload of one pop-cult ref after another-- with a pre-millennium dancefloor sheen.
Thankfully pre-millennium dancefloors-- some of them, at least-- were Album) in thrall to the recycled rigidity of old-school electro. Francis M.* - Gotta Let Cha Know (Vinyl) you get the Beasties keeping current by referencing the sounds that reared them when they were hip-hop obsessed hardcore kids.
Unsurprisingly, the Boys rarely fumble when playing with a sound they'd been loving and perfecting over a decade. Moving from electro-funk breakdowns to Latin-soul jams to spacy pop, Hello Nasty covers as much ground as Check Your Head or Ill Communicationbut the flow is natural, like Paul's Boutiqueeven if the finish is retro-stylized. Hiring DJ Mixmaster Mike one of the Invisibl Skratch Piklz turned out to be a masterstroke; he and the Beasties created a sound that strongly recalls the spare electronic funk of the early '80s, but spiked with the samples and post-modern absurdist wit that have become their trademarks.
On the surface, the sonic collages of Hello Nasty don't appear as dense as Paul's Boutiquenor is there a Seashore Mystery as grabbing as "Sabotage," but given time, little details emerge, and each song forms Deep Purple - Slaves And Masters (Cassette, Album) own identity.
A few stray from the course, and the ending is a little anticlimactic, but that doesn't erase the riches of Hello Nasty -- the old-school kick of "Super Disco Breakin'" and "The Move"; Adam Yauch 's crooning on "I Don't Know"; Lee "Scratch" Perry 's cameo; and the recurring video game samples, to name just a few. The sonic adventures alone make the album noteworthy, but what makes it remarkable is how it looks to the future by looking to the past. There's no question that Hello Nasty is saturated in old-school sounds and styles, but by reviving the future-shock rock of the early '80s, the Beasties have shrewdly set themselves up for the new millennium.
