    The RAP VERSION OF SGT. PEPPERS (PAULS BOUTIQUE)

    Anyone who loves good music, good records, a good and best album that I think all the rockers or everybody will like. Good Album that sounds a good rap album than todays rap, and the only thing that I didnt knew about this album was that they got suid because they sample alot of stuff that they didnt got permission but is still a good record that will be in the top 100 or top 10 in the rap Albums or The Hall of Fame.

    Mindblowing

    This record is a masterpiece. Fourteen years after its release and I'm *still* deciphering the lyrics.

    HIP HOP IN DIAPERS!!!!

    'PAUL'S BOUTIQUE' IS A VERY UNIQUE ALBUM. IT WAS SUCH A VAST DEPARTURE OF THE STATUS QUO OF THE HIP HOP GENRE AT THE TIME. 'THE BEASTIE'S' INCORPARATE SO MANY DIFFERENT ENSEMBLES OF SAMPLES THAT THIS ALBUM TURNS OUT TO BE A CHAOTIC HEADTRIP. AS SOON AS YOU START TO GRASP IT, IT SENDS YOU IN A NEW DIRECTION. WITH ENJOYABLE EASE. THE MIXING IS FIRST RATE, THE LYRICS ARE CLEVERLY WRITTEN TO BE FUNKY, HIP, AND HAPPENING. IT'S A TOUGH LISTEN AT FIRST, BUT BY THE SECOND LISTEN, YOU WILL CONSIDER THIS MASTERPIECE TO BE A HISTORIC MUSICAL TIMEPIECE.

    MTV Trainning

    When The Beastie Boys hit platinum with their debut album, they were instantly labeled the Elvises of rap, accused of being just another bunch of white musicians stealing from black music. But what was overlooked was that the Beasties actually had some interesting ideas to take hip hop to new levels. While in the years to come other white rappers like Vanilla Ice and Jesse Jaymes would prove they were the true cultural thieves, the Beasties defended themselves by recording a seminal rap album, PAUL'S BOUTIQUE. The record was, in fact, so legit that it eroded their commercial appeal in middle America. PAUL'S BOUTIQUE is a sample-fest--a post-modern epic of cut and splice studio wizardry. Taking snippets of music from sources as disparate as Curtis Mayfield, The Beatles, B.D.P., The Ramones and The Jaws soundtrack (as well as countless others), they built songs out of the debris of modern culture. Over these mind-blowing tracks, they weaved tall tales, self-promotional proclamations and sheer non-sense into a singular vision of inspired lunacy. Besides Public Enemy, no one else was producing albums as complex as this. PAUL'S BOUTIQUE sounds two or three years ahead of its time, perhaps this is why the album was considered such a failure upon its release. Whatever the case, there really is no album that sounds quite like this one does; the Beasties returned to the top of the charts a few years later with CHECK YOUR HEAD, but they may never be able to top the originality and depth of their stunning sophomore effort.
