Quotes

MCA: I wish for peace between the races. Someday we shall all be one.
Ad-Rock: Why fight yourself?
Mike D: This one is called rectify.
MCA: There's somethin' coming to the surface. There's fire all around. But this is all illusion. I've seen better days than this one. I've seen better nights than this one. Tension is rebuilding. Something's got to give. Someday we shall all be one.

More than definitive
30 January 2001 | by andyniessSee all my reviews

All of the Beastie's videos from Paul's Boutique forward are flawlessly presented with numerous angles, exquisite menus, commentary tracks, and enough remixes to fill two audio CDs. For example, the electro-rap Intergalactic has 9 camera angles, 6 remixes, storyboards, and "The Robot vs. The Octopus Monster Saga," which is the video extended and presented as a side-splitting mini-Godzilla movie. If you haven't viewed any of the videos, quite a few of them are hilarious parodies like Sabotage, which takes on '70s "tough cop" shows better than any Saturday Night Live skit could aspire to. Even the straight performance videos all have a twist, whether it be rotoscoped animation, fish-eye lenses or just the Boys wearing crazy wigs and outfits. It's more than entertaining, and the time and effort put into this compilation set a new standard for music videos.
