Beastie Boys


After Paul’s Boutique failed to move units, it wasn’t entirely out of the realm of possibility that the Beasties would wind up like the protagonist of “Johnny Ryall”– with “a platinum voice/ But only gold records,” reduced to obscurity while their most ambitious work faded into cutout-bin purgatory. As it turned out, they created an album we’ll probably never hear the likes of again– good thing it’s deep enough to live in forever. […]
As busy-sounding as these mash-ups were, the Beastie Boys and the Dust Brothers managed to create an incredible kaleidoscope of sound where several seemingly random sounds are pieced together perfectly to create an amazing album. […]

Hovering atop this wall of sound were lyrics unlike anything the Boys had attempted to date—a party-hopping, science-dropping orgy of pop culture that bobbed and weaved between anything from a daytime TV reference to local politics. […]
