Default Beastie Boys Music - New Hits LP

https://pitchfork.com/news/beastie-b...st-hits-album/

https://shopus.beastieboys.com/?utm_...-hits-album%2F

Seems to be another Solid Gold Hits / Anthology play.

I don't hate bringing their songs to the surface once a decade.
Hoping one day for a Deep Cuts collection release.

Wonder if there will be any treats with this one?

What a missed opportunity, right?! Like the book and story it could have been things we have NOT seen/heard along with the popular stuff. That would have been exciting.
The good news is that I don't have to spend money on this thing. I am a huge fan and don't even want it. I get it this is for newbies only. Hopefully we will see a Coda type release one day for us diehards.

The video says there will be a limited target exclusive color vinyl. It's not on the preorder website. Has anyone got more info on it?

Meh. If they’re gonna do this sort of thing, do it right. Why not just put out a full singles collection over 2 discs?

Obviously no selection will please everyone but Don’t Play No Game should be nowhere near a 20-track release. And if it’s the Fatboy Slim remix of Body Movin’ again, even the coloured vinyl won’t be bought by me!

Good to at least see LTI getting its due. Sad to see TT5B still being shat on - cheers Horovitz!

Getting panned from all directions lol. They trying to fulfill contractual obligations or something lol? Fan base clamoring for unreleased vault stuff so the label decides instead to give us what we already have.

Maybe the vault stuff really sucks like Horovitz always seems to suggest

I'm glad I'm not the only person who thought this. It's literally my least favorite song from their 30 year career. SMH.

The vinyl tracklisting made sense why they picked those 20 songs.
The CD listing should of been in the same order, but added triple trouble and an open letter to new york

Me myself first bought Hello Nasty, then IC and then the Anthology, which made me want to buy all the rest of the albums.

I haven't bought SGH and if I ever buy this one it would be for the nice shirt, but I don't hate on those records. Unreleased material would be very appreciated though

The packaging is nice. Not sure if I care to buy it. SGH at least had a DVD with some videos that weren't on any other DVDs at the time. Back when that kind of thing mattered.

Kind of odd that TT5B only gets one song. It's not most people's favourite album, or mine, but Triple Trouble did okay back then. Probably deserves a spot on a "hits" record more than a bunch of other songs. And if this isn't meant to be a hits record it should probably dip into some of their hardcore stuff, instrumentals, etc. Gratitude isn't even on here. I'd probably include it over Jimmy James. But I guess it's a hard call to drop an actual hit or a hip-hop single and then include like... Sabrosa or Off The Grid.



If this is gonna be that kind of party, I'ma stick my dick in the mashed potatoes!

You're probably right that this has more to do with the label that the band, although that's just a guess. The label wants to make money, and Beastie Boys are no longer a band that can really produce a new album, so why not "cash in" on a new fan base?

It sucks, but business decisions are what labels care about. I mean, I'd love a deep cuts release too, but let's be real: the fan-base that would turn over $35 for a disk containing the original version of Intergalactic and a half hour of stoner jams from 1992 is probably 1% the size of the consumer base who will buy this compilation.

If it gets new fans to buy records, I'm all for it. Plus let's not be jaded everyone. Don't forget that we need to keep new fans purchasing records so that Adam can continue ordering Chinese food and watching judge shows for at least another 4 decades. It's the least we can do after all he's given us.

Yeah only just realised theyíve gone chronological for the vinyl but mixed it up for the cd/digital. Probably the most interesting thing about this compilation.

yea grabbing the FACT. X BEASTIE BOYS CASSETTES hoodie ($$$) at the book show was pretty much a no brainer. but i gotta tell you i've had more people comment on this than any other piece of clothing ever. not to mention how delightfully warm and comfy it is.

I'm with you. It's totally catchy. When HSCPII first came out I remember saying to myself that the album sounded to me like it could have been the "lost" album between IC & HN.

I don't get the hate for that song.
