All the albums I have loved before: "Paul's Botique"

The Beastie Boys remarkable, albeit commercially unsuccessful follow up to 1986's blockbuster debut "License To Ill", is still some of the best hip hop in my collection. The B Boys left behind most of the heavy guitar licks and most of the beer references that made 'License' so much fun and turned to the Dust Brothers for the production of this LP.

What results is a watershed hip hop album, that set the gold standard in production for years to come...influencing several artists for YEARS to come...including Beck and countless others.

Here are two of my favorite tracks...'Shake Your Rump' and 'High Plains Drifter'...long live the Beasties!
