Beastie Boys - 'An Open Letter...'The gritty, urban standout from their 2004 'To The 5 Boroughs' LP sees Yauch, Diamond and Horowitz at the top of their still-scintillating game.

Chugging rhythm, occasional bass fumbles, and a homage to the circulating culture of their city, it's as much as an impassioned shout-out to homely climes, as convenient tourist-guide to one of America's more sensible, diverse and refined locales. Pay a visit some time.
