Ad-Rock: Now I rock a house party at the drop of a hat. And I beat a biter down with an aluminum bat.
Mike D: A lot of people they be Jonesin' just to hear me rock the mic. They'll be staring at the radio, stayin' up all night.
MCA: So like a pimp, I'm pimpin'. I got a boat to eat shrimp in. Nothing wrong with my leg, I'm just B-boy limpin'.

a feast for anyone and a model for future dvd releases
19 August 2001 | by (Amsterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Surpassing double-dvd with a data rate of continuously > 8 Mb/sec (not for the extra footage). There is 30 minutes of videoclips in each disc and 2 hours of remixes, so in total you have 5 hours of Beastie Boys (even excluding alternative angles). The chosen songs show most different views of all work by the Beastie Boys. This edition is not exactly concerned with the band (as their audio track unfortunately shows) but with their different creations. Spike Jonze's audio track is clarifying for that matter. The only big flaw is that the songtexts are modified (read: censored). The only small flaw is the absence of the hit songs 'Fight for your right' and 'No sleep til Brooklyn'. Perhaps a next edition? For now e.g. 'Netty's Girl' makes you want to ask the B Boys for any motion picture soundtrack.

Virtually inexhaustible number of combinations of remixes and video footage: the coolest part are the alternative angle tracks, which are mostly used to show all the material shot on one location instead of actual different angles of one event. That makes it great: you can see the entire subway scene that was shot for 'Intergalactic' for instance, or 4 minutes of the trio-angle footage for 'Whatcha want', while changing the music track. HF.
