Opposite reaction here. I'm very interested in the Beastie Boys and so I'm sure I'll still enjoy it, but the excerpt you shared sounds like it'll be standard-issue "we did this, and then this happened, and then another thing happened". Not sure why I was expecting something meatier, but my enthusiasm is a little dampened

I just like that it's told in their own voice, and the conversational style works for me. Looks like something I'll blow through in a few days.

Had a look at this book, it's dense as fuck. Like twice the length of Pearl Jam Twenty and just as dense.

I think having it written by the band members vs. an outside author may have a lot to do with that.
