"Good people, unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control, the "clean" version of our new album, The Hot Sauce Committee pt 2 has leaked. So as a hostile and retaliatory measure with great hubris we are making the full explicit aka filthy dirty nasty version available for streaming on our new site. We hope this brings much happiness, hugs, and harmony. Enjoy Kikoos for life!"

Similar in vein to the Foo Fighters leak a few weeks ago, the Beastie Boys are fully embracing new media.

I've heard good things. Listening to it now.

(Am I blind, or is there no volume control on their player? How annoying.

Are they trying to tell me now it's sabotage?

You are weird. "Ill Communication" is great. The correct cut-off point is "Hello Nasty," which is stupid and awful.

MCA taught me to play Mah-Jongg night before last. That is all I have to say, but c'mon.

I feel the same about Hot Sauce as I do about their last album*: a couple of gems with a bunch of regular normal raptime filler. I don't think they've had an album that works as a coherent whole since Hello Nasty.

* And by last album I mean 5 Boroughs; rumors of some kind of non-compilation instrumental album are just that--vicious, baseless rumors.

I'm with jtron. PB and CYH over and over, but (aside from enjoying the Sabotage video) I never got into Ill Communication and then Hello Nasty killed it for me.
posted by mrgrimm at 12:44 PM on April 25, 2011 [1 favorite]


WHAT. Hello Nasty contains some of their best work. Yeah it's not Paul's or like any of their earlier work, but why would you want to listen to the same stuff over and over again? Hello Nasty is old school in the new millennium.

And the first 7 songs of Ill Communication is one of the best examples of masterful album arrangement since the first 6 songs of Siamese Dream. COME ON

Aaaaaaaaaand, having listened to five tracks of "Hot Sauce"...

This will be the first album I have bought in years.

I'm definitely in the camp of those who were happy through Hello Nasty. The 5 Burroughs album wasn't bad, per se, just completely boring. They have nothing to prove to me, so I'm not even sure I'm happy to hear about another BB album...it seems more of an opportunity to dilute their legacy. I mean, even on Hello Nasty you could tell that they Boys are no longer boys, and affectations of boyishness seem increasingly forced.
posted by Edgewise at 12:54 PM on April 25, 2011


I mean Hello Nasty is what gave us this, which is objectively, undisputedly, the best example of... something. Also this, which not only features giant robot breakdancing, but contains my favorite example of sampling your own damn self.
posted by danny the boy at 12:57 PM on April 25, 2011


Sorry, but Hello Nasty was a masterpiece.
posted by rollbiz at 12:57 PM on April 25, 2011 [5 favorites]


After just one listen, and as the mayor of the Altered State of Druggachussetts, I deem the new Beastie Boys to be ...Awesome.
It's like the funkier, deeper tracks on Ill Communication and less of the old-school bombast stuff that made Boroughs kinda boring and much grimier and more textured.
It's not a massive departure but it still feels like a confident step out of the box a bit for them.
posted by Senor Cardgage at 12:57 PM on April 25, 2011


The correct cut-off point is "Hello Nasty," which is stupid and awful.

I remember being at a party in high school when it had just come out. The host had it in the CD player all night but anytime it got more than a track or two past Intergalactic this particularly annoying ditzy girl would say how much she loved that song and just had to hear it again, so immediately one of the many boys trying to impress her would run over and skip back to it again.
Thus, I became forever convinced that Hello Nasty is just that one song on repeat. Stupid and awful indeed, but perhaps it's been long enough since that dark night that I should give it another chance.

Yay! So exciting!

And whoever says they don't get Ill, I will cut you, I swear I will cut you.

Hello Nasty is kind of half and half, if I recall correctly. So excited!! I'm asssuming this means Yauch is feeling better!!!

Am I the only one that, when encountering a new and weird situation occasionally hears

"...I did it like this, I did it like that I did it with a whiffleball bat, So..."

Float through their head?



Just me then? Fair enough.

Hello Nasty was a creative return to form (with innovation!) after Ill Communication. They dropped back the live instrumentation and brought on a turntablist DJ. I don't understand hate on that album.

It's a little speaker on the top right corner of the player, at the end of the waveform.
posted by Sys Rq at 1:14 PM on April 25, 2011


Failing that, adjust your computer's volume.
posted by Sys Rq at 1:15 PM on April 25, 2011


Nah, I'll just play it REALLY FUCKING LOUD AS GOD INTENDED

(no speaker there, maybe it's a Chrome thang.)
posted by shiny blue object at 1:18 PM on April 25, 2011


For me (on Chrome) the speaker isn't anywhere near the waveform. It's waaaaaaaaay up at the very top right corner of the page, next to the gray bar -- "App Gallery | Get help | Try Premium | What's new?" -- that stuff. Presumably it's there because that's the last place you'd ever look and volume adjustment costs a website crazy money.

Your favorite band -- and I am in agreement with you that they are unquestionably an excellent performing act with few, if any, flaws -- sucks because of something they did which I like less than you like. And you should feel bad because you claim they suck because of something they did which you like less than I like.

I still love their tracks on the NYC Hardcore compilation tape, errspy. I was so happy to see them sometimes return to that years later, though I do love the hip hop as well.

"Party for the motherfuckin' right to fight" is a brilliant lyrical inversion, and I'm kind of jealous I didn't think of it myself.

But I guess if I had, then I'd be the Beastie Boys.

Yup, 3 days ago. Check the beastieboys tag.

This makes me happy, in ways that the previously mentioned video did not make me happy. I heard the beats and the verses, and thought "are these new, and where can I buy them?" Lo and behold - AWESOME.

Another recent response to a leaked album: Amon Tobin's new album available for purchase online early, less than a week after the first leak, including bonus track(s).

Public Enemy thought of it a while ago... it's kind of awesome to see the interplay between them and the Beasties in the late 80s, Paul's Boutique/Nation of Millions era.

Glad to see hear something browner rawer from the boys again...gave 5 boroughs a few cursory listens but was unimpressed. Hello Nasty was hit or miss but mostly miss. Ill Communication is a masterpiece only surpassed by Check Your Head and Paul's Boutique...
posted by schyler523 at 8:19 PM on April 25, 2011


Wait, no one has mentioned the lovely instrumental detour that was The Mix-Up, and the resulting tour, where the Beasties played instruments during interludes between rapping? It was a lot of fun.

This makes me happy. I can't wait for the proper release and the 30 minute long superstar movie.

And FTR, I loved Ill Communication. And Hello Nasty was good, but if you were anywhere near the breaks scene in the 90s you can't get near it for fear that you'll hear Body Movin', which was the first song ever to achieve the feat of being remixed by every single person ever.

And by Body Movin' I meant Intergalactic.
Body Movin' wasn't quite as bad on the remix front.
