The Beastie Boys have been grown-ass men for quite some time now, which is why it should come as no surprise that their latest, Hot Sauce Committee Part Two
, is basically a dad-rock album. Thatâ€™s because Hot Sauce Committee
is essentially made for people who grew up listening to the organic funk of 1992â€™s Check Your Head. Throwing away the old school hip-hop sound of To the 5 Boroughs---but not entirely instrumental like 2008â€™s The Mix-Up
---the band opts to combine the two sounds to create one of their most progressive albums to date. If youâ€™re a fan of the groupâ€™s stoner-friendly dub-meets-punk sound of the early 1990s, this album is a welcome addition to the catalogue.
