Without question "Paul's Boutique" is a classic. From beginning to end this album is a blur of strange samples, funky beats, and of course the off the wall Beasties bustin out lyrics with obscure references like only they know how. The Beastie Boys are one of the most creative and adventurous in the genre and they, like Russell Simmons (co creator of the Def Jam label and Run's brother) said were "groundbreaking". Anyone with a sense of hip hip history knew this already. I would say this album the "It Takes A Nation of Millions..." of their catalog. Referring to Public Enemy's breakthrough record. Using P.E. as another comparative, I would say "Licensed to Ill" is the "Yo Bum Rush The Show" of their catalog as well.
Musically, there isn't really a weak Beastie Boys album, but their first two are stone cold classics. These two are the ones I come back to the most. I can still remember seeing videos for "Shake Your Rump" and "Hey Ladies" on Yo MTV Raps (Those were the days, seriously!) back when MTV played rap (ha ha!). I had Boutique on a cassette first. I remember the tape came in different colors (mine was red), but I know someone that had a blue one.
. The album is no filler starting with the slow tribute to the ladies "To all the girls", which blasts into "Shake your rump". I could comment on all the tracks, but obviously there are stand outs: "Egg Man", "Hey Ladies", "Car Thief", "Shadrach", and the medley finale "B-Boy Bouillabaise" I also have to mention the hillbilly hoedown "5 Piece Chicken Dinner" that goes hilariously into the funky beat of "Looking down the barrel of a gun". It's hard to describe this album, it's an aural experience. If the conclusion is the "bouillabaisse" then the album as a whole is the full meal deal. I can only tell you that as an old school hip hop fan (the B-Boy fans already own it!) you must have this.
