Outkast's, and generally, one of the best albums I've listened to.The only issue I had was that the interludes felt completely useless compared to the ones from albums like TPAB or GKMC.They were also too long for their irrelevance to the album.

Favourite song: Aquemini/Da Art of Storytellin' (PT1 & 2)
Least Favourite Song: SpottieOttieDopaliscious

Really solid album but felt too similar to 'Low End Theory' (not really a bad thing as I properly enjoyed that album).

Despite it sounding quite similar I failed to get bored of the funk/hip hop fused group.

GZA's lyricism and overall rapping ability is next to none on this.It felt like the groove of A tribe called quest with added grit and grime to create a solid album.

An extremely fun and unique album where the voices and styles of rap perfectly fit each song to create an amazing album.The prefect blend of flow, lyricism and groove.

Pretty flawless album.Feels incredibly similar yet so different to TPAB which felt really good.For some reason I feel like TBAP was the better album, the tracklist and production felt way better compared to this.
