the beastie in me

Looking forward to The Mix Up, an all instrumental album from The Beastie Boys as I'm a big fan of The In Sound From Way Out!. The new one is supposed to be more post-punk than jazzy. I'll be interested in its chops but hope it's still got some swing.

My tolerance for rap is variable and sometimes limited, for all the obvious reasons, but the music, yeah, I can dig. Interesting, it seems a lot of people don't like instrumental music and will diss this album because there's 'like, uh, no lyrics, man'.
Yeah, I guess that's why it's an instrumental album.
