Review Summary: Boys grow into Men

When ever you see a list of Greatest Artists or even a list of greatest albums or greatest anything for that matter you will always find the beer chuggin,skateboarding white Jewish geniuses the Beastie Boys,and for good reason ther discography is just plain awe-inspiring rivaled by few. With a huge array of Classics under their belt. Well here lies one more to add to that list. Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 and I say this with a full knowledge of their past works that this is their greatest album to date.

Lets start with one huge jump our Boys have made lyrics. With this LP the lyrical content is insane and blows all of they're past works out of the water, Once rapping about beers and tartar sauce. . . .Well they still are but in a much more skilled manner all of which are able to hold a candle rapping a long side Nas in the track "Too Many Rappers". Mike D comes in with some great bars returning with his deep ear warm raspy voice making his lyrics sound just that much more hypnotizing. Its just staggering to hear the jump in content from them progressing from party scream rappers to legitimate skilled Emcees each with their own unique style all feeding off eachother's energy. This is truly a group that proves there is strength in numbers

Then there is the production which his handled by the Boys themselves. Seeming to be inspired by Electronic Dance music it proves the Beastie Boys can evolve in an ever expanding medium. From the twangy almost light feel of "Make Some Noise" to the heavy layered feel of "Too Many Rappers" it all comes together so coherently with each member able to flow perfectly to the beats. Even sampling Daft Punk's smash hit "Da Funk" in Lee Majors Come Again, in which they lay down some old 80s esque freestyles to the bass driven muse. Every thing is handled so percisley you would think a Veteran producer would have handled it from the slightest thud to the loudest snare the Beastie Boys do not disappoint.

What this album has to show is evolution. An evolution in rhymes, production, and content, A evolution i was more then happy to view not only a great album. But the greatest in their Career.
