Beastie Boys - Hot Sauce Committee Part Two

RATING: 7/10
For those who haven't checked out "Fight For your Right Revisited," the short film the Beastie Boys made to promote this album, then do so... It's hilarious. In any case, we find a lot of new stuff from the Beastie Boys on this record, and a lot of older stuff. The instrumentals are a big and noticeable on this record - They're heavy, grungy, sloppy and almost psychedelic... Which is saying a lot for a hip-hop group. The album altogether isn't necessarily ear friendly, and seems to mostly be comprised of really "classic" sounding rap styles and distorted drums.The album seems more inventive instrumentally than their record, "To the 5 Boroughs" (They have another release afterwards, but it's all instrumental... and sweet).Overall, the album leaves much to be desired in the way of a single... But kicks serious ass altogether.


Notable Tracks:
Just go watch the 30-minute youtube video I've posted and it gives an array of what the album has to offer.
