Since the good ship Grand Royal sank, the Beastie Boys are no longer the money-making machine they once were, and with a new album still likely years away from serious consideration, it's not at all surprising to see them tossing off a no-frills holiday-season cash-in comp. Hey, those stylin' Japanese sanitation worker suits don't come cheap! Fans of rap's Three Stooges will likely have all 15 tracks on Solid Gold Hits, which focuses on more recent singles - no unreleased songs or even rarities in the bunch. Still, the inclusion of a few oldies like Brass Monkey, No Sleep Till Brooklyn and Fight For Your Right makes it a decent Beasties intro sampler for your kid brother. That is, if he hasn't downloaded the stuff already.
