A great record. I know others out there agree, 'cos I can never find Kick It! in second-hand record racks! I love the Beasties, but could never get my mind around heavy rock-rap tracks like Rock Hard and She's On It. Skip a couple of nondescript songs to Original Concept's Pump That Bass. This track wasn't out 5 minutes before it was spotted and sampled by labelmates Public Enemy ( Prophets of Rage ) and by Eric B and Rakim ( Paid in Full ) Chuck Stanley's The Finer Things in Life is one of those songs I loved first time I heard it, and I still do. LL Cool J's I'm Bad pretty much sums up LL's opinion of himself, but it's hardly his best song, even at the time. Up next, the record highlight, Public Enemy's You're Gonna Get Yours; an aggressive ode to Chuck D's Oldsmobile 98, and a putdown of P.E. critics. All in all, a great value record.
