After all these years... It's tragic to see that Stankonia has been swept under the rug, and yet it holds up to be one of the most boldest and intrepid Hip-Hop experiences of all time.

Aside from that, the fact that this could very well be the greatest display of OutKast's comradery, the fact that "Stankonia" is the amalgamation of everything the duo has had their hands on beforehand, the fact that this is either artist's greatest performance... is why the album ... read more
20+ Songs? Yup

70+ minutes? I wish it were longer

Does it feel like a chore? Not once

B.O.B. is the best track off this because it makes me want to go down the speedway at 120mph.

Best tracks: gasoline dreams, B.O.B. (bombs over Baghdad), gangsta shit

Worst tracks: slum beautiful, toilet tisha, I'll call b4 I cum
