**100TH REVIEW SPECIAL**

Welcome to Stankonia, Georgia.

I don't think it possible to understate the world-building on this album. OutKast wants to take you seven leagues below sea level, into the realm from which all funky things come. In doing so, the duo refused to listen to any rap or hip hop in the process of creating this record, in hopes of creating a sound that elevated past slick bars and booming beats. A flurry of skits decorate the tracklist to build an experience that isn't ... read more

POV: you're Cee Lo Green jealous of Andre 3000 being able to pull off the 'quirky rapper/singer/songwriter' vibe

Hey everything worked on the first two records, let's keep running it back. This is where the 'run it back' strategy begins to wear on the listener - you're so accustomed to the sounds and ideas, that the new ideas fail to strike the same chords as they did the first few records. Otherwise, the poppier, sadboi style begins taking over a little more here, going for super sugary-sweet sounds at times.

Hey, everything worked on the first record, so let's run it back. Seriously, just about the same formula, sound, and style. Maybe a few sharper lyrical performances, but that's it.

The start of a pop/electronic/hip hop blend with a boy band set-up that would take over the music-sphere on their own terms. Really nice to see the razor-sharp direction and consistency on this record, as the annoying or confusing moments are kept to a minimum. They really nailed it here, as the beats are a good balance between weird and catchy. Everything's bright, vibey, electronic - it's an aesthetic that is a good backdrop for all the voices to come on and do what they will with it. And ... read more

Cute lil detour that Freddie takes. The cover + promos + music videos in tandem with one another helped the overall experience, but the music on its own lonesome fails to stand as a consistent work. That being said, Weight into Automatic is one of the strongest 1-2 punches in Gibbs' discography - lord, inject that shit in my veins.
