Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (6/25/92, p.41) - 3.5 Stars - Very Good - "...their most unconventional outing to date...Beneath the seeming chaos, the Beastie Boys have created a harmonious playground out of their musical fantasies..."

Spin (9/99, p.124) - Ranked #12 in Spin Magazine's "90 Greatest Albums of the '90s."

Spin (12/92, p.67) - Ranked #4 in Spin's list of the `20 Best Albums Of The Year' - "...after the critically acclaimed yet commercially distraught PAUL'S BOUTIQUE, who knew the Beaties would come back samplin', riffin', dissin', and jammin' on instruments they decided to play themsleves..."

Spin (5/92, p.76) - Highly Recommended - "...Thick, deep, textured and aural joyride..."

Entertainment Weekly (p.55) - "The trio pushed their rhymes to byzantine new heights and stretched out with Hammond-and-bongos funk jams." -- Grade: A

Alternative Press (7/95, p.81) - Ranked #23 in AP's list of the `Top 99 Of '85-'95' - "...reinvented rap, sampling, and hip-hop's parameters, incorporating their posse as near-equals, picking up instruments themselves, and...making an album that's hard to turn off....That's the true mark of a classic..."

Option (July-Aug/92, p.89) - "...a deft blend of samples, noise and live instrumentation...stoopid, fun, loud...the Beasties know exactly what they're doing..."

Q (Magazine) (p.134) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[A]stonishing, like stumbling into a jam session mixed from on high by an invisible scratch DJ....They ping-ponged between hardcore punk and hip-hop..."

Pitchfork (Website) - "[I]t proved that the Beasties could find a new tack on their sonic workmanship without needing a Rick Rubin or some Dust Brothers to guide them."
