4.0 out of 5 stars It's what'cha want. November 8, 2005
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
My thinking is, this collection was made exclusively for the brand-new Beastie Boys fan, or the person who just never got anything of theirs yet. I say that because they also have out a 42 track 2-disc anthology from 1999, and because who doesn't have this stuff already? And, shouldn't the single disc collection come out before the 2-disc one? However, this is short and to the point, and is a simple hits album for those that only want the biggest hits. 15 cuts including "Fight For Your Right To Party", "Hey Ladies", "Pass The Mic", "Sabotage", "Intergalactic", and "Ch-Check It Out". It's just two or three tracks from each album, and nothing new. Hence, "Solid Gold Hits". This is also available with a DVD of videos. Gotta love the cover photo.

3.0 out of 5 stars Needs some re-mastering July 5, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
While the songs are great, the quality is not good. It sounds like they were recorded from the original masters with nothing being done to improve the transfer. So the older songs sound tinny and grainy, which is very noticable when played on a good stereo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good selection July 23, 2010
By Jose
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Good selection of most of the biggest hits by the Beastie Boys. Can't go wrong here, especially if you are a casual fan and want a good selection of their most popular stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beasty Besties March 26, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Who would have thought the three snit-nosed juvenile delinquents that deployed their forced obnoxiousness onto the world in 1985's "Fight For Your Right To Party" would have ever made albums into a oeuvre of classics? "License to Ill" even sounded like a one-hit-wonder; silly frat boy posturing, misogyny, drunken loutishness from a trio that looked like nerd drop-outs trying to make AC/DC sound like Run/DMC. Boy, did they prove us wrong.

By "Paul's Boutique," they were already collaging samples in a way that would soon be de rigueur for most rap groups (even if the growth meant the "Ill" audience didn't catch on at first) and "Check Your Head" saw the trio turning into a band, picking their old instruments back up and hitting gold with "Sabotage." They'd finally managed to do what no-one else had; weld rock to rap without losing a shred of credibility on either side. It took almost another five years before the Red Hot Chili Peppers got it right on the opposite end with rock, and only Run/DMC could touch the Beasties for innovation.

You'll find that in the clever rhymes (my personal favorite is pairing 'my wok' with 'Mr Spock' on "Intergalactic") and tricky samples (Herbie Mann on "Sure Shot," The Sweet on "Hey Ladies"). In the interim, their voices and attitudes grew up (Adam Yauch became a leader in the "Free Tibet" movement) and they kept the albums coming. As a single disc, some will feel shorted, but "Solid Gold Hits" covers the turf from "Ill" to "To The 5 Boroughs," which is a pretty broad swath. As a casual collection, this and "Ill" would likely fill all your Beastly needs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gotta have this March 21, 2012
By j lee
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Not a huge fan of today's rap and r&b, but do have a huge soft spot for some of the old school rap, like Run DMC and the Beastie Boy's. I will select this on my ipod when I start a 3-4 mile run. Starts out with "so what'cha want, and rocks all the way to the end with "fight for your right". Solid Gold Hits is a must have for all hip hop-rap listeners.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good intro compilation October 21, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This "best of" album spans from 1986 to 2004, and includes most of the singles and well-known hits from their studio albums. No live recordings or B-sides, but it was a good intro for me, since I didn't own any of their albums before this one. I agree that the sound quality isn't as good on their older songs here. I recommend it for a party or car CD, it doesn't have any "filler" songs that mess up the pace.

Great collection of songs! If you want a great mix of Beastie Boys music this is the CD for you. Lots of songs and all the thump you need. Perfect CD if you can't decide what BB CD to buy and only want one.
