Commentary:

Beastie Boys

"I guess because they think I'm the most childish" - Adam Horovitz in 1994, on why Mike Diamond and Adam Yauch call him "The Kid"

"Adam Horovitz played all the instruments - drums, bass and kalimba. The only things he didn't do on it were the percussion and the scratching. Everything was made from [Adam's] demos and then we ended up adding stuff to it" - Mario Caldato, 1998

Press

"'Sneakin' Out of the Hospital' and 'Song For Junior' are two of the best instrumentals they've yet produced, and even their attempts at ballads are successful, combining the spacerock sounds of Spiritualized with drum and bass, bossa nova melodies, and backup vocals by Brooke Williams and Cibo Matto's Miho Hatori" - Creative Loafing, August 29, 1998
