If you're looking to this album, you might be like me. I've bought this disk 10 times throughout the 90's and early 2000s, and everybody bummed it off of me and never gave it back...Dude....it's Pauls Boutique....the perfection of production, lyrics, and overall hip hop occurred on this collaboration with the Dust Brothers in 1989 but nobody really figured it out until after Check Your Head came out....ahead of it's time.....can never be done again....Though they are various genres, I rank this is one of my favorite albums of all time along with Beatles Revolver, Floyd Want You Were Here and a few others. This is as amazing as it gets...
Paul's Boutique was a literal sacred text growing up in the 80's. It was a template for everything that indicated cool to me as a teenager. I didn't know what the heck half the items they were talking about meant but I knew I wanted to live it. It's interesting that this album simply couldn't be created now with the restrictive method copyright laws are applied versus sampling. So, this album is truly a one-off prototype for a dozens of reasons a lot of of which are heartbreaking. I'm not going to break down the tracks individually because that would be like singling out chapters of a amazing book for isolated reading. And I will say there are a few aspects I search jarring in current times; the massive handed misogyny for one that they recanted later in their careers (and to them for being able to change and acknowledge change gracefully) and some of the more hyperbolic violence. You have to take it in the context of the era and realize it is (for the most part) truly hyperbole. These are skinny white children from Brooklyn and the thought of them taking "... a bat to my lawyer, my girl, and accountant" should create you giggle. If you're an adult and somehow missed this over the latest 20+ years (and I know you've heard SOME of the tracks) or, more likely, a youngster just beginning to discover the Beastie's catalog, you can for all practical purposes begin and end here at Paul's Boutique and they're in Brooklyn.
Easily one of their best albums! This album was such a amazing transition form Licensed to Ill, and they really begin to sound like the Beastie Boys here. Dozens of amazing samples, dozens of awesome flow! This album is a funky, sample driven scream out to anyone and anything! If you were stranded on an island with only one BBoys album, you would wish it to be this one! My man MCA's got a beard like a billy goat...RIP MCA.
Maybe the greatest Hip Hop album ever made. I think the best method to indicate its greatness and vitality is to reference Miles Davis' admiration of the album. He is quoted as saying it's one of his favorite records of all time; he listened to it constantly and never got tired of is album is a sonic masterpiece and absolutely hilarious, too----quite an achievement. The beats are fresh, complex, and layered in such a method as to make polyrhythms. First rate production and conception sound simultaneously contemporary and r me, only Public Enemy's first two releases and Run DMC's Raising Hell come close in artistry, purpose, and vitality. Gangster Rap is a joke compared to this revolution in sound and rhythm.
The Beastie Boys brought a whole fresh sound to the rap stage in 1986 and they really turned it up into a 70's flow with their sophomore release, getting crazy with such jams like Hey Ladies, Shadrach, and Shake Your Rump. If you're looking for what really kept these guys in the mix, pick this one up!!
I, being an old school punk rocker, do hereby attest under penalty of purgury and/or death that this album is the single greatest recording ever made. 30 years after it's initial release it still holds up. I cannot say enough amazing things about this album. If you appreciate melody it is a must have in your collection.
I'm just now listening to the BB's older albums, and I think this one is better than their first. The use of sampling and lyrics makes for an upbeat, sometimes humorous ride, and the actual feel of the album is better than most hip-hop and "rap" I hear today. They were beautiful unusual at this time, before white rappers were more mainstream, and had a lot of tournament but really succeeded with this album and the follow-ups. A lot of fans consider Paul's Botique to be their best album, and it kinda reminds me of "Blood Sugar Sex Magik", a best-selling album that all true fans of RHCP will be familiar with.
The address/gps function, the very backbone of a reporting app, doesn't work. It clearly follows me as I move around, and with amazing accuracy too. It's no more than a couple yards off. Yet the whole time it says "location unknown." And yes the application has GPS permissions and the phone is set to high accuracy. The fault is w/ the app.
Seriously???? This application and idea is beyond stupid. If CA was not such a joke and we were not TNT'S biggest customer they would back off from these "scary" fireworks. Why are they legal in 47 other states if they are so evil? Safe and sane is code for expensive and boring. CA should legalize them for a year,test it out and see how it goes. Why do stupid people ruin fun for everyone else? Why not create being stupid illegal????
This application suxs!! I've downloaded it twice I don't like it can't obtain pass unless you connect to your Fb then when I did that don't see any pictures of anybody so how do you know to like them or not then I test to upload a picture of me and it keeps saying there is a unknown error occurred??
Hard to say if the application is useless or no one is acting on the information. Supposedly there's a crackdown on the illegal firework usage. Since I live in a psycho neighborhood and we've dealt with this EVERY night, all night, for 2 or more months, I gave it a try. Nothing happens. No feedback, no response - nothing. Guess that's our government at work for you. I think it's a waste of time.
To all the people saying "I'll do whatever I want": do as you want but fo you have the integrity enough to claim responsibility for burning a person's home in the wake of your "right" to celebrate with an uncontrollable combustible pyrotechnic? more than likely; you'll run away like a punk much like the suspect who burned my neighbors house. Fun isn't worth risking everyone's lives.
Slow, unreliable, glitchy. Would I trust this application in even a routine fire drill? Absolutely not. Feels like a scam of the highest order. We have had multiple drills and even unexpected fire alarms this year to utilize this application and it has NEVER functioned as promised. What a waste. Our district deserves better.
Crush Fireworks Criminals! Want I had this tool latest year when some neighbors 4th of July bottle-rocket insanity flew across the road & exploded next to me. Damaged my hearing. Criminals beware...I'm ready for you now! I've got my fresh application & I'm not afraid to use it!
Seems to be working for me Someone has been lighting off M80s or something related (really loud!) Across the street. My dog is terrified! I couldn't obtain a image but wrote a detailed notice and place the address and it went through. A few minutes later it went from (new) to (assigned). I hope they catch them! If you need to light items off do it far away from animals, people and structures you can burn down! There's reasons why they are illegal here.
update: the glitches are getting out of hand. this is the 4th time I've logged and haven't received funds from the night before. I've emailed 2x. It's a fun android game but to play it you have to spend money. The are little but it starts to add up. A lot of fresh quests require you to a package to complete it. I have unfinished quests because of this. I've purchased a few packs but every few quests I'm stuck because of an item that can only be obtained by buying a pack.
I was enjoying the android game then all my decorations, money register and all my changing booths disappeared. I've emailed android game and got no response so I'm uninstalling it. Issue solved. 2/1/2019 update. Changed rating to 5 star. I have fun playing this android game and plan to hold it as long as possible.
