Product Description


After the out-of-nowhere success of Licensed to Ill, the Beasties had to prove they were more than one-album wonders, and they hit it out of the park with this follow-up. The Boys' lyrics are a hysterical deluge of cultural allusion (Ponce De Leon, Japanese baseball legend Sadaharu Oh, and Love Connection's Chuck Woolery all get name-dropped), compressed wordplay, and adenoidal snottiness, but the real stars are the Dust Brothers, whose production is a hip-hop landmark. Their music tracks sound like the history of rock and funk radio boiled down to a pure concentrate--monster jams built out of thousands of unexpected samples (Johnny Cash! The Sweet!). It's a killer party album, kinetic and dense, and it never slows down. --Douglas Wolk

5.0 out of 5 stars MAN THIS CD IS CRAZY Dec 27 2004
By Nasud
Format:Audio CD
These guys are amazing at scratching and mixing. This is like a huge hip-hop megamix in one CD. Expecially the last track, because it literally is a megamix. These guys have so much energy, in a good way. If you love hip-hop music, you have to pick this and Licensed to Ill up.

5.0 out of 5 stars the album that kicked off the 70s revival July 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
I first heard Paul's Boutique in 1988 after coming back from London. There, a 1970s fashion craze was sharing the stage with acid house, acid jazz, etc. The Beastie Boys were the first to put something out like this in the states.
I love the city street scene on the cover, the dirty sound that smacks of vinyl records and 8 track tapes. Each track is dense with references to pop culture and samples and snippets from everywhere, I don't know how much of the sound is Beastie Boys and how much the Dust Brothers, but it all comes together.
The snot nosed kid sound of Licensed to Ill is still here, looking for a piece of ass and a window to break. Hey Ladies is a fine example of the good natured fun, slightly malicious and politically incorrect. Likewise with Car Thief, but there is a kind of warped record sound that makes it all sound a bit ominous. In the lyrics, there are stirrings of deeper things to come such as A Year and a Day which are gonna lead into the Buddhist chanting and philosophizing in Check Your Head. Most of all it is funny as hell and has an excellent groove from start to finish.
If you buy one Beastie Boys CD this is the one.

5.0 out of 5 stars whose masterpiece? July 11 2004
By Davy
Format:Audio CD
the dust brothers? or the beasties?
either way, it's the greatest rap album of all time, hands down. so take that, snoop.
and not only is it the greatest rap album of all time, it's the prototype of beck's mid-90s masterpiece odelay. not bad for a couple whitey nerds from the big apple.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential July 8 2004
By Sergio
Format:Audio CD
You don't have to be a BB fan to enjoy this CD. It truly exemplifies musical talent, at a time in the industy when there was freedom of sampling. These guys put together a really incredible compilation of words and sound. A must have in everyone's collection. Just listen!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of raps all-time classic albums June 28 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When "Paul's Boutique" was originally released, many were expecting "Liscensed to Ill Part II". Instead, what they got was one of the greatest pure rap albums ever recorded! This is old school at it's best, no doubt. Buy it and you'll find out why this CD always makes the list of best rap albums ever made.
Other CDs I recommend: Mr.Deviant's "Techno Obsession" which is a killer mix of power rock and hard dance, it contains killer instrumentals.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm just not even going to try. June 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
No matter what I say, no matter what words I choose to use to describe this body of work, it will not come within miles of capturing the essence that is Paul's Boutique. However, calling it hip-hop's Dark Side of the Moon or Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band is a good start. To quote Wayne and Garth, "We're not worthy!"
