Product Description

Eighth studio album by the American hip-hop trio. The album has been released to critical acclaim and includes the singles 'Lee Majors Come Again', 'Too Many Rappers' and 'Make Some Noise'.

BBC Review

Even the Beasties themselves would agree they don’t figure in the upper echelons of the pantheon of great rappers, though several of their LPs – specifically 1989’s Paul’s Boutique, 1992’s Check Your Head and 1994’s Ill Communication – remain epochal joints, especially to "heads" of a certain age. The Beasties’ genius lies in compensating for their less-than-finessed flows by juggling an ineffable sense of cool that makes a virtue of their terminally-uncool nerdiness, their samples and references and goofy jokes cooking up a world of their own any dweeb would love to dwell in.

Beasties albums, at their best, are immense amounts of fun. Sometimes they’re more than that – MCA’s autobiographical Bodhisattva Vow from Ill Communication proving that the trio shouldn’t shy away from getting serious. Sometimes they fail at fun: hello, 2004’s arid To the 5 Boroughs. Their seventh full-length-proper, Hot Sauce Committee Part Two, is scads of fun, its first half especially so. Their wizard blend of goofy creativity and deft discipline ensures that the best tracks here are simultaneously scattershot and focussed – like the way Too Many Rappers cooks up mean funk from Space Invaders noise and cranium-crushing low-end (and throws in a guesting Nas), or how Say It pulls nagging hooks from abstract feedback drones and then welds them to subterranean bass grooves that could level mountains, before collapsing into stoned synth doodles that’ll amuse all but the terminally dreary. On paper, both are messes; but on record they make canny sense.

The sound of the Beasties here is catnip for those who still revere their late 80s/early 90s output: vocals are drenched in reverb like a hippie dabs patchouli, while the tracks fuse live instrumentation and samples with a simpatico they’ve perfected since Check Your Head, delivering tracks alive with ideas and chaos and funk and noise and groove, dense enough to get lost in for at least a summer. They don’t shy away from pop moments, though: OK has a dippy new wave catchiness evoking Ad-Rock’s BS 2000 side-project – it’s as infectious as crabs – while the dub-a-delic Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win has Santigold playing straight-woman to their Marx-Brothers-of-Rap lunacy with an aplomb that could own the charts if the weather stays balmy.

The second half wanes, but only slightly: Lee Majors Come Again reminds us that the Beasties earned their punk cred ages ago and can leave it alone now, please; but instrumental Multilateral Nuclear Disarmament gets colossal with an ear for detail akin to the best dub, while Crazy Ass Shit closes the album on a seemingly-throwaway note. Truth is, to cook up such joyful nonsense probably takes a helluva lot of effort, but it’s the Beasties’ gift to make this seem easier than falling off a mountain bike, and an infinite amount more fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beasties back with brilliant new album! 7 May 2011
Format:Audio CD
Well, i don't know what else i can say, that has not been said in previous reviews.

This album is excellent, if you like the Beasties, you will really like this.

I love the way some of the music samples have been distorted, cut, transformed and altered as you can tell the Boys have been experimenting with sound, This fits in perfectly into the old school funky grooves. I personally have not heard stuff like this since maybe early Beck - Odelay springs to mind ,(another ground breaking album) yet it remains different and fresh sounding, when i first of all heard the intro's to "Too many rappers" and "Say it", i was blown away!

Some people moan that the Boys have distorted the sound and pitch of their voices on some tracks, I don't mind this as it creates an old Electro feel.

Just get out there and buy it !!!

The Beastie Boys return with album number eight, their first in four years since the under rated instrumental only album "The Mix-Up", so this is their first material with vocals since 2004's "To The Five Boroughs". I'm Glad to say it's vintage Beasties featuring all the trademarks of what makes them great. "Hot Sauce Committee Part Two" which is really part one!(If you know how The Beastie Boys like to wind up the press you'll understand) was supposed to be released in 2009 until MCA(adam yauch/Nathanial Hörnblowér)was diagnosed with cancer of the parotid gland so of course it was understandable to put the album on hold till he made a recovery.

"Hot Sauce Committee Part Two" is full of classic Beastie Boys tunes, from opening track "Make Some Noise" which is vintage Beastie Boys as the three MC's Rap and rhyme over some beats. It's an early calling card to say they are back! The track "Ok" is a funk filled track that is as catchy as anything they have done. There is reggae on the track "Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win" which features American singer Santigold who's performed with a who's who of acts recently from David Byrne to M.I.A. Speaking of collaborations rapper Nas features on the track "Too Many Rappers" it might not be as good as their collaboration with Q-Tip("Get It Together") on "Ill Communication" but's it's still a great collaboration as they rap over a big beat, and is better than the original version they released back in 2009..

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot Music Committee 1 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD
"Hot Sauce Committee Part 2" by the Beastie Boys is a crafty blend of rock and hip-hop. Many of the songs on the cd are high-pulse and have some good beats. My two favorite songs on this cd are "Make Some Noise" and "Say It". "Make Some Noise" sends a strong message about making your voice heard and being outspoken. "Say It" is a musical track that is related to the message of "Make Some Noise" that communicates speaking your truth except with even more assertiveness. What I also like about this collection is that the songs on the cd blend seamlessly well together. Those who enjoy the song "Sure Shot" by the Beastie Boys are the most likely to enjoy "Hot Sauce Committe Part 2" (because this "Hot Sauce" album has the same spirit of the "Sure Shot" song).

5.0 out of 5 stars Come's The Beastie Boys!!! 5 May 2011
Format:MP3 Download
Do I need to explain that this is every bit as good as anything that they've ever done?!! Of course not, you all knew it would be!!

Sounds a bit more like Check Your Head in style, but still very much a Beastie Boys album for current times. Got a great collab on there with Santigold too, that uses a skanking beat.

All in all, nothing out of the ordinary, but when you do 'ordinary' so well, why would you want to change it!?!? If it's broken....Beastie it!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars middle aged hip hop 4 May 2011
Format:Audio CD
they may well be middle aged now,
but the beasties still know how to funk out old style.
this cd is full of old skool and new skool beastie fun.

some tracks, upon first listen do sound throw away,
yet still put a smile on your face. if like me you listen to them,
for a smile and funk-beats, then this will not dissapoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Summer Album 6 May 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I think nin/ja77 has written a great review, and to be honest I can't improve, so I would refer you there.

I just wanted to add two things; it's a great summer/BBQ/festy album, expect to hear it all over the place.

And listen to the lyrics of 'Here's A Little Something for Ya' - soooo funny.

Oh and thanks Amazon, super saver still rocked up day of release - good work.

Still reading?, pffft, just buy.

Whoever decided that "The Beastie Boys ... don't figure in the upper echelons of the pantheon of great rappers" has definitely been smoking a little too much cane to be truly rational! These supposed rap lightweights continue in their longevity which outstrips most of that pantheon of "great rappers", and "Hot Sauce" is a good, accomplished album. However, it suffers in the way "To The 5 Boroughs" did, lacking that extra little spark which propels it to classic status. It'll entertain and put a smile on your face but you probably won't be pining to dig it out and listen to it at some point in the future like Paul's Boutique.
