Beastie Boys : Alive

It's dynamic, poptastic, classic [b]Beasties[/b]-lite: looking backwards, moving forwards, and consequently covered in bruises from bumping into parked cars

Otherwise known as the New One from B-boy mega-retrospective '...The Sounds Of Science' and a tune which, either by intent or accident, seems to fuse elements from every Beastie era. Old-skool clunkbeats and jabbering juvenile surrealism from, ahem, back in

the

day blend comfortably with phased electro effects and a surreptitious melodic structure reminiscent of Fatboy Cook's rump-shaker remix of 'Body Movin''. It's dynamic, poptastic,

classic

Beasties-lite: looking backwards, moving forwards, and consequently covered in bruises from bumping into parked cars. Arf.
