So I've heard. I love that song, too.

great album
I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

It's funny, I think Paul's Boutique gets a lot of praise heaped on it now, but when it came out I don't remember it being all that well received.

Kind of opposite of Paul's Boutique, I remember Check Your Head being huge when it came out. Everybody I knew loved that album, the songs got a lot of play on MTV and it seems like the critics saw it as this really maturing, quantum leap forward album for them. Maybe it's reputation has faded now but I always think of it as one of their most highly regarded albums.

Most of you are far to young to appreciate how sweet hip hop was in the 80's and early 90's, anybody's songs were public domain to use as samples which created a limitless backdrop to any MC's rhymes no matter how much money you had you had a limitless supply of background for you to drop the hard rhymes without paying royalties to other artists. Just imagine for a second what P. Diddy pays to use 1 song in his ridiculous "music" and then imagine for a second what it would cost to make Paul's Boutique song by song. If you need help check out the song by song sample reference here : Beastie Boys’ Paul’s Boutique Samples and References List

This is one of the very last albums where hip-hop was truly free
