Beastie Boys - The Hot Sauce Committee Part Two
Featuring a meld of the band's previous recording techniques — sampling in a hip-hop style, and playing live instruments in both hard-core punk and jazz idioms — Beastie Boy's eighth studio album, The Hot Sauce Committee Part Two, has been a little longer coming than anticipated. Originally intended to be the relatively plainly titled The Hot Sauce Committee, Adam Yauch's cancer diagnosis delayed the album's scheduled release in 2009. THe band continued to record more songs until they had enough for two albums. Part One has been delayed indefinitely, but Part Two is here today. And who are we to question the wisdom of MCA, Ad-Rock, and Mike D? Exactly.
The Hot Sauce Committee Part Two is the Beasties' first studio album since the entirely instrumental release The Mix Up in 2007, and the band's first full length with lyrics since To The Five Boroughs came out in 2004.
