Paul's Boutique (Explicit)

Paul's Boutique by Beastie Boys
Released: Jul 1989
Label: Capitol Records
Inspired by the sample collages of Public Enemy, The Beastie Boys and The Dust Brothers made an exhilarating hour of crazy sounds, B-boy raps and bizarre stories like "Egg Man." The Beasties still have a bit of frat-boy thug left over from 1986's Licensed to Ill -- check "3 Minute Rule" and its boasts of taking ecstasy and smoking dust. But they've mostly outgrown that for an expansive vision of hip-hop psychedelia. Highlights include "Shadrach" and Ad-Rock's galvanizing "A Year and a Day," wherein he rhymes about "turning my dreams into reality" over The Isley Brothers' "That Lady."
