Paul's Boutique (2LP)

Beastie Boys

Regular price €30.00 Sale

Paul's Boutique wasn't the instant smash that its predecessor, Licensed to Ill, had been. Still, the impact of its dense, Dust Brothers-produced tracks and voluble raps is such that every buried sample, every reference is pored over even today on numerous websites. Fearlessly crate-digging, the music remains funky and adds layers of idiosyncrasy and non sequitur that few would have predicted. And the stories often tweak the Boys' outlaw image. "Egg Man" is about attacking with just that ovoid, "Shadrach" cast them as Robin Hoods and the protagonist of"High Plains Drifter" shoplifts from Kmart. In the end, their most daring move was putting the Beatles to use on "The Sounds of Science." Its that kind of vision that helped keep the Beasties on the cultural radar, even if it took years for Paul's to go platinum. Our men had the last laugh. You can share in it.
