5.0 out of 5 stars Most illingest B-Boys 3 Jun 2006
By Alex
Format:Audio CD
In order for Capitol to allow the Beasties to press forward with their soon to be released (in the UK) concert movie, Awesome; I Shot That, they requested the bands MCA to compile a 15-track greatest hits collection in the run up to Xmas 2005.

But never mind the fact that this is a blatent record company idea. And never mind the fact that 1999's excellent Anthology (with most the hits, rarities, b-sides, and other songs the Beasties themsleves like and chose) already exists...if you're new to the boys or just a casual fan, this is absolutely perfect.

Every track really is solid gold, and each album is represented fairly, albeit obviously. So there's the early frat boy rocker anthems of Fight For Your Right and No Sleep Til Brooklyn, still sounding gloriously mega 20 years on, to the recent offerings including 98's Intergalactic (a UK best single chart-wise for the boys) and even more recently the Beasties comeback single Ch-Check It Out.

For a band who, in all honesty, offer so much on the individual records, taking the biggest singles over 20 years is always going to result in a decent collection. Sure Shot, perhaps a career highlight, is just absolutely perfect hip hop, as is 95's old school Jimmy Smith sampling Root Down. See Brass Monkey, a hip hop classic, slide along side later works such as the excellent Pass the Mic, or 2004's heavier toned An Open Letter to NYC.

The whole 15 track collection is littered with classic, classic Beastie Boys, old and new. It's no fair representation of all their work over the years, and the various styles they've incorporated in their music, but it's a collection of singles any rap group would die for. And I say rap, I use it in the credible sense. Today's artists at the top of the pile, say the Eminems or 50 Cents of this world, could never match the work here.

4.0 out of 5 stars beastie boys are pure solid gold.. 22 Feb 2007
Format:Audio CD
fantastic albulm, pure solid gold as the title suggests..

a must for all beastie & old school hip hop fans.

best track has to be the awesome "an open letter letter to new york"...this is one of the beastie's newer contempory stuff and is about post 9/11.....as i say AWESOME.

the only minus bit is that they could of included more cuts from their best selling albulm to date, from 1986: licensed to ill.

other than that though a top drawer classic hip hop greatest hits albulm from one of the early new york pioneers...

5.0 out of 5 stars Beastie Gold 9 Nov 2005
By Thomas Magnum - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Beastie Boys' Solid Gold Hits is more for the casual fan of the group as the album offers nothing new in the way of music (the Fatboy Slim remix of "Body Movin'" which was only available on a cd single is the only track that wasn't on a proper album release). The album is a streamlined version of their double disk compilation, Sounds Of Science. You get fifteen songs that were all singles, no album tracks included. The songs are classics from their frat-boy rap of "Fight For Your Right (To Party)" to the funk of "Hey Ladies" to punk thrash of "Sabotage" to the old school homage "Open Letter To NYC". The long time fans will want to check out the cd/dvd version that has a separate dvd featuring the videos for all fifteen songs.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's what'cha want. 9 Nov 2005

This is obviously a collection most will buy for the videos. While the most casual fans will be happy with simply the biggest hits, the DVD will appeal to the fanatics. So, I guess there's something for everyone here. This reminds me of the recent Red Hot Chili Peppers "Greatest Hits" with DVD, meaning music and videos, but only the basics. Still, the songs are classic, and who does video better than the Beasties? Remember the "Fight For Your Right To Party" video, or how about the awesome "Hey Ladies" and "Intergalactic"? Not to mention the 70's cop spoof "Sabotage". This might not be as great as the "Sounds Of Science" anthology song-wise, but with the added videos, it's "Solid Gold".

A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
having only heard ch-check it out and intergalactic before purchasing this album, it was somewhat of a leap of faith. but now i can say it does not dissapoint. i'll give a seperate review for the cd and the dvd.

CD - although i have nothing against cuss words, i got the edited version since i saw it at walmart. i have to say, it is the best-edited album i have ever heard. although most songs didnt have to be edited anyway, the ones that were (especially ch-check it out) sound great. its hard to tell they were edited, it blends in so well with the beat. it is also very diverse in musical style. from rap, to rap-rock, to rock, to metal, this has it all.

DVD - this is what hip hop videos should be like. not the stupid bling bling and women in bikinis. these videos are hilarious. although some seem very dated (especially no sleep till brooklyn), they are all funny. highlights include ch-check it out (my favorite song and video), body movin' (a hilarious 60's spy movies spoof), intergalactic (a nice spoof on japanese monster movies), triple trouble (the trick or treating scene is classic), and sabotage (a side splitting spoof on 70's cop shows, complete with dark mustaches and even darker sunglasses).
4.0 out of 5 stars I've had better. 6 Mar 2014

This is a pretty solid Beastie Boys compilation. The only issue is that when you have such a lengthy history as they a do, a single disc compilation doesn't quite cut it. There are some great songs here but if you want a truly great compilation, get The Sounds of Science: the Beastie Boys Anthology 2 disc set. I mainly got this for tge music videos DVD.
