It is a tough call overall. I dig Paul's for the reasons you mentioned all the goofy samples and i think the lyricism was a huge step forward from Licensed. Check Your head they had some amazing beats and went experimental with the instrumental side a bit more. I didn't necessarily dig the thing they did with the vocals, kind of sounds like they're recording inside a trash can or something but I feel that record for sure it catapulted the Beasties to a totally different level much the way Pauls did. Extremely tough call for me, i'm Beasties in my heart for life.

I guess that's your opinion but I think that the sampling in Paul's Boutique was way more unique, interesting, and properly applied than "Fear...". That's not to take anything from Fear though, because I love that album too.

The Usual suspects for me:
Nas: Illmatic
Beastie Boys: Paul's Boutique
De La Soul: De La Soul is Dead
A Tribe Called Quest: The Low end Theory
J Dilla : Donuts
Public Enemy: It Takes a Nation of....
Wu Tang Clan: Enter the Wu Tang clan

Practically speaking, 90% of the great masterpieces of hip hop were recorded during the golden age (1986-1994). After that the movement got took over by lawyers,accountants and marketing executives.

This album still holds up and has some heavy beats and dope songs to this day. I remember bumpin this album so much when I was younger. It may be a little cheesy at times but its mostly hip hop gold.
