BASS! Public Enemy, ABC1, "It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back" from beginning to end, May 27th. Nick Cave that month, too. Ultra-pleased

there is a spam board, you know. you don't have to hype up every gig in the city.

debatable graham.

it's personal opinion of course but for me probably the most groundbreaking hiphop album would be "paid in full" - eric b and rakim.

i remember my cousin gave me a stack of hiphop albums on cassette when i was about 9 or 10: easy e, the chronic, nwa, ll cool j and pubic enemy were the ones that i recall but "paid in full" was awesome.

it was only later in life did i truly begin to appreciate how great it really was.

aquiline, i dig paid in full, but i do tire quickly of the beats. i like rakim's metaphors and his rhyming cadence can be quite cool, but his voice bores me sometimes (sacrilege to say, i know).

there is nothing esle that sounds like "it takes a nation..." and there are very different sounding tunes on the lp. paid in full doesn't have as much variety.

i rate "critical beatdown" by ultramagnetic mc's, "strictly business" by epmd, "ciminal minded" by bdp, "sex packets" by digital underground and "licensed to ill" by the beasties above paid in full.

but, as you said, it's a matter of opinion!

Both are fantastic albums, it has to be said. I do think it's a taste in hip-hop sounds that would determine which is better for you. I can't emphasise the love I have for "Hello Nasty", though. Still my favourite Beasties album, because they'd matured out of their teenage fart jokes phase, and their maturity in regards to their previous misogyny really comes across well. It's also flawed, but this is due to how experimental and interesting it is

i wish they were doing "yo! bum rush the show" in its' entirety instead. much prefer it and when it came out it sounded like a message from another planet - completely and utterly blew my mind to shreds.

Er they'd pretty much matured out of the fart joke phase by the time they made Paul's Boutique and it was actually a pretty ground-breaking album although few (myself included) seemed to realise it at the time. Certainly more-so than any that followed, although I do have a place for all of them. Check Your Head is probably my favourite of the lot.

I know what you're saying, LM, about the maturity beforehand, but I just feel "Hello Nasty" has this unique feel to it, as pretty much all Beasties albums do. It is my favourite, but Licensed To Ill and Check Your Head are mighty close. In fact, thinking about it, so probably is Paul's Boutique. Beastie Boys are great! [now listening to "Root Down". Superb]
