Products / Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique
[Hip hop] This unique - at least at the time of its release - record is composed almost entirely from samples. Nowadays, it is rightly recognised as the band's breakthrough album and has even been described as the "Sgt. Pepper of hip hop", both for its sonic achievements and its lyrical content. In total, 105 samples are used on the record in a multi-layered fashion - a rather novel and pioneering technique at the time. Highlight track: '3-Minute Rule'
