When it dropped in 1994, the Beastie Boys' fourth album was initially received as a "more of the same" effort that expanded on the alt-punk-funk-rock-rap of Check Your Head—and it's true that Ill Communication is their first album that doesn't feel like a brash reinvention that does something entirely new from its predecessor. But it's also the best exhibition of how the Beasties effectively found a way to make all their disparate references and enthusiasms cohere into something distinctly theirs. It's not just hard to imagine any other '90s group this equally conversant in late-Golden Era hip-hop ("Root Down"; Q-Tip feature "Get It Together"), hardcore punk ("Heart Attack Man"; "Tough Guy"), and garage-funk jams ("Futterman's Rule"; "Ricky's Theme") while also delivering the absolute scream-the-walls-down pinnacle of aggro rap-rock ("Sabotage"). It's that they do all this stuff with the level of commitment and bravado of a crew who channeled their always-present snotty defiance to increasingly positive and introspective ends. MCA's misogyny-rebuking verse on opener "Sure Shot" and his Buddhist awakenings on "Bodhisattva Vow" carry a lot of that weight, but Ad-Rock and Mike D also back up this emergent identity of anti-slacker, pro-unity DIY communalism running through that feels like the perspective of artists who realize they're building a deeper legacy than they originally thought. And though there's still plenty of room for goofy vulgarity, by this point it's easy to hear the Beasties' in-progress maturation efforts as a well-struck balance between pop-culture-addict irreverence and activist-adjacent '90s bohemian philosophy that's aged surprisingly well. © Nate Patrin/Qobuz
