Beastie Boys - Ill Communication
Oct 9, 2019

Like its predecessor Check Your Head, Ill Communication is not strictly a Hip Hop album, but a mash-up of styles with liberal doses punk-rock thrown in the mix. Never afraid to experiment and to do exactly what they wanted, Beastie Boys stayed true to their punk-rock roots on this album.

Even though it contains a number of the Beasties’ biggest singles – like “Sure Shot”, “Root Down”, the Q-Tip featuring “Get It Together” and “Sabotage” (made extra special because of the epic video) – the whole album feels a little bit less coherent as Check Your Head did (even if it is kind of similar to it).

Ill Communication may be a bit too heavy on the punk-rock side for Hip Hop purists but that said, Ill Communication still is a more than fine album by any standard. Although it may not be for everybody, it’s a classic in its own right – with massive appeal to other, non-Hip Hop audiences.
