Default Beastie Boys: Paul's Boutique

Really one of the most unappreciated albums ever. When I got it (so many years ago) I remember saying to my college roommate "These guys are really, really good". He just laughed because at the time they were really only known for "License to Ill". But time will tell, and of course in this case time has told.

Hardly unappreciated, it has been smothered in acclaim. And it also went double platinum.

I agree though that it's a great rap album.

I have a hard time choosing between this and Licensed to Ill as my favorite Beastie Boys album, and Check Your Head can make it's way into the competition. But I think Paul's Boutique is my favorite.

Paul's Boutique is definitely one of my fav's. The amount of random small music samples that went into that album is unbelievable. go to paulsboutiqe.info and click on the individual songs to see.

I think Check Your Head is the underappreciated one. A truly ecclectic album and it's home to one of my favourite hip-hop tunes, So What'cha Want.

But what happened to the Beasties? They fell off big time. Their rhymes got weak. They even released another instrumental album called the MixUp—and I loved In Sounds From Way Out—and even that sounded kind of tired.

Pauls is an awesome album and I still play it.

OMG. What an awesome tune. One of my favourite BB tracks. That and 'Hey Ladies'.

I think Check Your Head is when they went more Rock then they were in the past. I mean, they had a Punk (or very similar sounding to Punk) song on there. But it's a great album too, it's one of the three albums i've fully listened to by them (Licensed to Ill, Paul's Boutique, and it), and you're correct about it being very eclectic. So Watcha Want was heavy and hardcore.

They were going back to their roots with that song, they were a hardcore punk band on their first EP's before they got big.

Paul's Boutique was so different from Licensed to Ill which is almost a novelty album...I mean they opened up for Madonna in 1985...Paul's then came out and is really like alterna-punk-rap. It set the tone for the rest of their career where they became trend setters rather than trend followers.
