Review #125: Paul’s Boutique, Beastie Boys

#125: Paul’s Boutique, Beastie Boys

This is the Beastie Boys’ second album after Licensed To Ill, and is made almost 100% from samples. That’s very cool, but here’s the thing: this is NOT the Beastie Boys’ best album. No way! I know it’s important and adventurous and broke a lot of new ground, but this album doesn’t have any of their hits on it.
