by Beastie Boys
Released: Jul 1989
Label: Capitol Records
Arguably their best album, the Beasties' sophomore effort was commercially ignored when released in '89, and hailed as a classic years later. The production (much of it by the Dust Brothers) is out of control: an unrelenting barrage of ridiculously funky samples and thick breakbeats. Lyrically they step it up as well, with ill wordplay and sick metaphors galore.
