from Fringe Video Fanzine Issue #002
3 June 2001 | by See all my reviews

The ultimate Beastie Boys collection that has the producers pulling out all the stops and taking full advantage of everything that the medium has to offer. Includes old school style hip-hop rap classics like "Body Movin", "Sabotage". [which includes a spoof talk show that interviews the fictional cops from the video.] "Intergalactic" [which along with the video includes the world premiere of the nine-minute 'Robot vs. The Octopus Monster Saga' (1998)], "So What'cha Want" and many more. Two disc full of hours of entertainment from The Criterion Collection, but more importantly layered beneath the video footage are rare remix versions of the same songs done by everyone from Fatboy Slim, to the Prunes, or D.J. / producers like Moby. With a video beastiology like this who needs CD's anymore, I hope this becomes a DVD others in the recording industry will set their standards with. An Exciting and worthwhile purchase
