Beastie Boys 

To the 5 Boroughs

Beastie Boys
To the 5 Boroughs
The Beastie Boys are pushing the big 4-0, and a lot of people are hesitant to embrace To The 5 Boroughs because of it. If this were an album of bling and bitches, that would be easy to understand. But instead of trying to keep up, Ad-Rock, Mike D and MCA have flipped the clock back to 1986, cut through the excesses of modern hip-hop and brought it back to its roots of social awareness and satire. Hopefully this will encourage hip-hop to embrace the wit and warmth of the old-school again.
