Double album. One half Andre, one half Big Boi. It's a great concept which made a classic album. It's my favorite album with their name on it but I wouldn't recommend it to someone new to them, because it's so divided. Though I guess it worked for me (I hopped on the bandwagon after Hey Ya!, so sue me).
Speakerboxx is stronger than The Love Below.
Lots of fillers- but most artistic rap album I have heard.
Hey Ya & Roses are Genius Songs everything else is great
Released as an Outkast album, it's the Boi on one disc and Andre on the other. And while Andre scored the biggest hit "hey ya!" that everyone from your grandma to your grandson loves, Boi delivers the most consistent goods throughout his disc. Favorites on disc 1 are the hyper-frenetic "ghettomusik", the soulful "the way you move", the snaking "tomb of the boom" with its bevy of guests. His flow is tough and the backing beats are pretty tight throughout. Outside of the aforementioned "hey ya!" (THE party jam), the other highlights are the sexy, near-lude "spread" and the beat-funky "roses" (with chorus "i know you like to think your sh"t don't stank, but lean a little closer, see, roses really smell like poo poo poo" and adlibbing around "crazy bitch" at the end). He evokes prince often, like on "she lives in my lap" and its finale. But a lot of songs overstay their welcome. (i'm looking at you "pink & blue" and "vibrate".) An what's with that "Dracula's wedding" song? (it's kinda bad in a kooky good way.) The ending of "prototype" with its "stank you smelly much" is juvenile but cute. i like the quick keys all over "my favorite things". Overall, my feeling is this would've been a huge album if they brought their ideas together, culled the best and put out one album of THEIR stuff on one ~15 track CD.
There are some great singles here. "Hey Ya!" is among the best songs of last decade and "Roses" is great as well. Of the two, I prefer Speakerboxxx over The Love Below
Well the singles are the best on this.
Great album, huge, epic, and ambitious, but way too long. The advent of the CD was the worst thing to happen to rap. Since most rappers are good for 4-5 songs per record (and that's just the good ones), allowing them the opportunity to go way over an hour was not doing them, or those buying the music, any favors. Compare this double (might have been 4 records if on vinyl) to Exile, London Calling, Blonde, and it is about double each of those in length. The White Album is long at 93 min, but this one is 40 min longer than that! The CD I put together from these two discs runs about 77 min. My version is probably the album of the decade, and an all-time great. The Outkast version, well... let's grab the reins boys, what do you say? (Cliche alert!) Less is more.
I used to listen to this album a lot during 7th grade...not so much anymore. It does have some catchy tunes though!
Up there with The White Album in terms of ground broke and ground covered - both sides of the album are consistently catchy and immaculately-crafted, though The Love Below takes a while to be fully appreciated I think. 'Roses' and 'War' are my personal favourites
