1035. Beastie Boys - The mix up

When I listen to any of the BBoys old instrumental jams I know them all by heart - mumbling each bass line, mimicking every hi hat and happily yelling out POW! The Mix Up offers 12 jams that are completely unforgettable. Sure they groove, but only slightly, and the funk is never laid down thick - the mix up sounds like a band trying to sound like the Beastie Boys - I'm truly afraid of their next release - what happened to our beloved band? It's as if they lost their mojo, their muse and are playing tunes that aren't even a shadow of their old stuff... Beasties, bring it back, or just cut it out.
