The Beastie Boys' 1989 magnum opus Paul's Boutique is widely regarded as one of sampling's highest musical feats — a dense "rap opera," as one critic called it, that even Miles Davis couldn't stop listening to. Many have tried to decode its magic, but until now, no one has attempt to unlock its secrets by re-coding it.

A trio of British turntablists — DJs Food, Cheeba, and Moneyshot —' spent the last three years creating a re-imagined version of the album from scratch (no pun intended), using "all the original samples plus a cappellas, period interviews and the Beasties’ own audio commentary from the reissued release." That comes straight from Food's mouth, via the O.G. wax doctor's website.

Interesting, but not nearly as good as the original. I remember buying that tape the day it came out. Awesome from beginning to end.

I rememeber it flopping originally. My friend bought it, we both hated it. I think everyone was expecting License to Ill part 2 in 1989.

It wasn't untilt the late 90s that I really listened to it again and loved it.

Well, like I said...a lot of us were expecting another metal mash up like License to Ill. Rememeber that was what was popular at the time. Paul's Boutique was a few years ahead of its time IMO. Your right though, it's a genuine classic now.

Because it was different from License to Ill. In all reality beastie Boys with pretty much every single release has different sounds for their albums. NOthing wrong with that as i love it.

It was a genuine classic the day it hit.

That happens a lot I think. My older sister gave me her copy of Houses of the Holy after just a couple plays. Said she couldn't stand it. After Led Zep IV it was a big departure. I still give her a hard time about it....

I've listened to Paul's Boutique maybe 400 times.
