Hot Sauce Committee, pt. 2 | Beastie Boys
Before we get started: there is no Hot Sauce Committee, pt 1. Wanted to make that clear, in case you Beastieheads thought you might have missed a release. The Beastie's best album so far (Paul's Boutique) was an unbelievably strange departure from late-80s hip-hop everyone was used to at the time. No one knew how to deal. Critics were luke-warm, people didn't buy it. Then, magically, it changed hip-hop forever, and is now routinely included on Best [number] Albums of All Time!!!!!!! lists. The point? Critics — raving this time — are saying HSC,pt2 is as weird/awesome as Paul's Boutique. This dropped last week and, despite good albums from Okkervil River, The Antlers and Wild Beasts, this remains the story.

Okay, so the world is dying (or dead, or something) and some of the world's survivors have created a massive ship called the Ark (totally biting Noah's steez) that you have to destroy or capture or something. This first-person-shooter promised to have RPG elements like Fallout and Borderlands, team-based tactics like Battlefield, class-based cooperation like Team Fortress and just some amazing FPS action. Super-duper ambitious. Critical consensus, though, seems to fall in the spectrum between "nice try, guys," and "absolute clusterf---."
