Editorial Reviews

On their previous album, Ill Communication, the Beastie Boys expanded their parameters yet again, melding cutting-edge hip-hop with slinky jazz, butt-wiggling funk, weepy classical, and combustive punk rock. Four years down the line, the group's music isn't nearly as organic. They've all but abandoned the guitars and returned to the kind of old-school beats and rhythms that defined their groundbreaking 1989 disc, Paul's Boutique. But Hello Nasty isn't a regression, and it's anything but a cop-out: in addition to resurrecting the best elements from their past, the Beastie Boys have embraced the dopest high tech gizmos of the computer age. Hello Nasty gurgles like galactic sulfur pools, whizzes like a Sega game, and slurps and thumps like the best backward Hendrix loops. Add in a cavalcade of Latin percussion, calliope keyboards, and exotic samples (Stravinsky, Stephen Sondheim, Jazz Crusaders, Rachmaninoff), and you're left with one of the most creative and jubilant hip-hop records to date, even if you exclude witty lyrics like, "I'm the king of Boggle / There is none higher / I get 11 points off the word quagmire" ("Putting Shame in Your Game"). To paraphrase über-critic Robert Christgau, Paul's Boutique may have been the band's Pet Sounds, but Hello Nasty is the Beasties' Sgt. Pepper's. --Jon Wiederhorn

Product Description

It's been a dozen years since the Beastie Boys broke, and on Hello Nasty, they show that--though they've grown up, matured, and just gotten older--they're still in touch with the inner brat that always made them so much fun. Turns out that the brat's turned into an ace record collector with choice taste in collaborators, too. --Randy Silver

5.0 out of 5 stars They will never top this. Ever. July 15, 1998
Format:Audio CD
Pubescents the world over inwardly heard peals of heavenly music in 1986, for delivered into their laps was a raunchy rap album seemingly produced by the heavens themselves. "License to Ill," a toxic blend of rap, rock, and sampling, was thrown together by three guys who were barely post-pubescents themselves. It was loud, rambunctious, and ingeniously accessible.
12 years, three studio albums, and an innumerable number of concerts later, the Beastie Boys have released what is quite likely thier finest album. Although they evolved beyond beer-swilling misogyny long ago, they haven't forgotten their sonic roots: "Hello Nasty" contains echos of the bass-n-beats style they brought to the masses. The odious punk blitzes and trippy musical meanderings of "Ill Communication" are conspicuously absent here, save a track or two. Also absent is the lyrical preaching; at one point MCA says you'll never see him in a commercial, but for the most part ! ! "Hello Nasty" is the Beastie Boys doing what they've always done best: talking about how great they are, waxing about world peace, and inserting nifty samples (courtesy of turntable phenom Mix Master Mike) into the mix. Think "Paul's Boutique" with a little "Check Your Head" thrown in for good measure.
"Hello Nasty" is 22 tracks' worth of great rap peppered by the occasional aural experiment. The Beasties have simply and effectively nullified the hype surrounding this album in one fell swoop; it is simultaneously behind and beyond all critical expectations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hello Nasty & Extra Tracks April 23, 2000
Format:Audio CD
The albumb Hello Nasty is Excellent I highly recommend it. I am not sure but I assume the extra tracks are the ones of the tour edition. I have a copy of "Tour Edition - Australia and New Zealand"; it is not in what I would call a box but a cardboard case like their instrumental album. It folds out into 5 double sided' squares with elaborate artwork to match the theme of the front cover. The Hello Nasty cd is the same but in edition to this there is a blue bonus disc containing four extra songs. 1- Hail Sagan (Special K), 2- Body Movin' (Fatboy Slim Remix), 3- Intergalactic (Prisoners Of Technology Remix), 4-Peanut & Butter & Jelly. All are excellent songs as you would expect from these scientists of sound. I would only recommend this special edition album to extreme fans who like me are on a quest to collect all of their CDs and LPs.

While I have always liked the Beastie Boys I was never what you would call a rabid fan. I only owned one other album when I bought Hello Nasty and all I was expecting was something kind of fun for the morning drive or weekend road trip. This is one of those albums that I love more and more with each successive listening. It's so mercurial in its mix of styles, from one song to the next only the humor, wit and infectious rhythm and beat seem to be the common threads. The seemless blending of rap, techno and old-school funk makes this album energetic with a playful feel. I can see myself still listening to this regularly 10 years from now and honestly think that it is one of the best albums ever recorded. It's not often that I find a CD where I love every single track, but I have to look no further than Hello Nasty for that now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grand wok of flavors September 25, 2003
Format:Audio CD
22 tracks, 67 minutes of pure eclectic genius. On-the-spot rapping, wacky but wonderful collaborations, excellent music: this album is one of the best of the 90s for me. Every listen is a great trip into another galaxy of fun sounds and thoughtful lyrics. It's a long way from the misogyny of "Licensed to Ill" but this album is well worth the time. Rap, bossa nova, old skool hip-hop, jazz, rock: they all come together for this huge party. Dance along!

5.0 out of 5 stars kick off your shoes and relax your socks! September 22, 2009
By lori
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I can't add much more to the previous reviewers' glowing accolades for this phenomenal album. However, for all of you who wonder whether this reissued and remastered dual-disc version is worth the cash, let me assure you that IT ABSOLUTELY IS! This is by far the best of the recent re-releases from the Beastie Boys--from the remixes to new songs and all the tracks spanning both discs, you will not be disappointed. (Furthermore, for all of my fellow vinyl lovers, there are both standard and special edition LP sets as well, and ordering them through the BBoys' site gets you a digital download of all of these killer tracks.)

"The sound of the music drivin' you insane / You can't explain to people this type of mind frame..."

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner October 27, 2000
Format:Audio CD
You really have to respect the Beastie Boys. Since 1986, they've been releasing music that explores ground from whiny rap-rock to Dr. Seuss cut-and-paste insanity to jam-band-that-raps, and now to the old-school yet very new-school sound of "Hello Nasty". They've also kept the quality remarkably high; "Hello Nasty" is either the Beastie's second-best or third-best album (behind "Paul's Boutique" and possibly "Check Your Head"). The rap tracks are consistently great, with highlights like "Super Disco Breakin'", "The Move", "Three MCs and One DJ", "Unite", and the monster crossover singles "Intergalactic" and "Body Movin'". They even find time to travel into the worlds of techno ("And Me"), dub ("Dr. Lee, PhD"), and acoustic guitar songs ("I Don't Know"). It's always nice to see people continue to experiment, and it's even nicer to see the experiments succeed so well.

4.0 out of 5 stars one of the band's best
Go beyond "Intergalactic" to try "Body Movin'," "Remote Control," and the instrumentals and learn why the Boys offer more than beats and rhymes.
