The album was re-released in 2009 in a number of formats and featured 16 b-sides and rarities as well as a commentary track. The album is extensively broken down track-by-track by Mike D, MCA, Ad-Rock, Mario Caldato Jr., and Money Mark in Brian Coleman's book Check the Technique.

I only know their singles and the Hello Nasty album, none of the song titles here are familiar so interested to hear what it's like tomorrow.

I wasn't overly familiar with this album when I saw them in the Tivoli in 94 but that was one of the best gigs I was ever at and this album became part of most people I knows collection. There are some amazing songs on it and some filler from what I remember. Will stick it on in work today

New to me; don't know much Beastie's but anyone who writes "I'll stir fry you in my wok" has my vote.

on first listen this is VERY different from what I expected

its a straight-up rock'n'roll album.

I might actually end up liking

(bear in mind, I'm about 5 songs in - guitars and hammond organs though. That ain't like no hip-hop I know)
