Check Your Head (1992) and Ill Communication (1994) are my two favourite Beastie Boys albums. Whilst Ill Communication contains a couple of their seminal tracks, I'd say Check Your Head is a stronger, more varied and fluid album. And one of my favourite tracks from it is #3, "Gratitude". The music video is an homage? a parody? of Pink Floyd's amazing Live at Pompeii concert/video. The setting reminds me of Floyd's classic "Careful with That Axe, Eugene" albeit without all the scenes of exploding lava.
