Product Description

Review

Aquemini, OutKast's third brilliant slice of hip-hop, continues its stellar recording history. Never ones to get bogged down with a single delivery style, Dre and Big Boi masterfully practice relaxed, hyper, distorted, speedy and conversational presentations. Musically, the collection supplies some of the lushest tracks ever included on a hip-hop record. -- The Los Angeles Times

[Outkast] rip the rap envelope by trading samples for distinctive instruments like Kalimba and harmonica.... -- Entertainment Weekly

Amazon.ca

It takes a few listens to sink in, but on Aquemini, Outkast have pulled off a rare feat in hip-hop: they've made a good record that's a masterpiece of subtlety. What's more, it's their third record, and they've yet to fall into a rut--and that alone puts them in line for an award. The Organized Noize production crew is sublime, working with live musicians and crafting hook-filled soundscapes that complement Big Boi and Andre Benjamin's melodic patter. (See "Rosa Parks," "Chonkyfire," and the epic "Liberation" which features Erykah Badu, Cee Lo, and Big Rube--and clocks in at just under nine minutes.) Classy and intelligent, Outkast haven't sacrificed anything in their quest to make challenging, innovative hip-hop that forgoes idle boasting for the duo's message. A sample, from the title track: "Now, question: is every nigga wit dreads for the cause? / Is every nigga wit golds for the fall? Naw / So don't get caught in appearance."--Randy Silver

This album is beyond amazing.I'm really getting into Outkast's music-I have three of their albums now(this one,stankonia,and speakerboxx/luv below) and all three of them r classic.This one is just the most original.But its still cool!That's what you'll love about it.It doesn't matter what kind of music you like, you'll love this album.Obviously Andre is one of the best rappers ever-his verse on da art of storytelling reminds me of how Biggie was-u know how they could rap about something they experienced and you'd feel like you were there experiencing it with them?That's it.Big Boi is great too-but if u really wana hear the best of him listen to speakerboxx.andre always stands out on their albums together.rosa parks was a huge hit-and i can see why it has a nice beat,catchy hook, and unbelievable verses-especially andre.GOD,he is good.But anyways-return of the g has a nice fast delivery and it has an orchestra on it-how many other rappers can rap over an orchestra?then theres skew it on the barb which is another nice track with raekwon,aquemini-which sticks in my head alot-is classic,synthesizer is weird but it grows on u.I luv slump-tht is a great song 2 jus chill2,same 4 west savannah and the funky,mellow spottieottiedopalicsious.I wish theyd rapped on that song,tho.I enjoy most every track,I like the guitar on chonkyfire-tho i like mostly rap,I'm a sucker for guitars,i actually play bass.To close,this album is just a classic up there with life after death,reasonable doubt,and all eyez on me.To represnt the South in their classic record report,the Source chose this record.Im not surprised-its soooo great.If u like rock,funk,rap,hiphop,soul,r and b,hell music period...youll love this record.CLASSIC.

No, you won't find any bad puns like "Aquemin-amazing" while listening to Aquemini, you would probably be too engulfed in the hypnotic beats and catchy lyrics to notice. Aquemini is easily the best rap album I have ever heard. I know that's a rather bold statement, but it's so amazing that you won't even mind the after-song skits, usually wastes of time, but not in this case. Aquemini reminds me of a mix of ATLiens and Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, Outkast's 2 albums that came before Aquemini. The crunk beats of Southernplayalistic are here (Slump, West Savannah, Y'All Scared), but on the other hand, some parts of Aquemini have the same low-key, compelling dark beats of ATLiens (Return of the "G", title track, Da Art of Storytellin' 1 & 2).
It's wonderful to see that Outkast was only moving forward at the time, and it was obvious with "Rosa Parks", the hip-hop anthem of '99, and "Spottieottiedopalicious", a 6-minute long super-funky spoken word joint. Though the guest appearances are at a minumum (Goodie Mob is present, and Raekwon spits a sick verse on "Skew it on the Bar-B"), Outkast pushes the creativity to a maximum. The last track on this album, "Chonkyfire", complete with a nice guitar riff, is absolutely unforgettable and it's a perfect way to close out this remarkable album. The only albums that come close to Aquemini are albums by Outkast themselves. If you're looking to climb out of the trash bin of mainstream rap today, turn off MTV, throw out your radio, and buy Aquemini. It's all you need.

It is a testament to the rest of the album that though there are 3 fillers on this album (Skew it, Mamacita, Y'all scared), it still gets 5 stars in my opinion. There is so much originality on this album, it is almost The Love Below. Dont worry hardcore rap fans it aint that eclectic! Andre really starts to experiment in some songs (Synthesiser and Chonkyfire for example). There are pure but superb hip-hop tunes like Slump and West Savannah. Everything else is kinda in-between, but with other innovations like the (almost) Reggae/Funk song Spottiedopiliscious (that how you spell it?), and the great vocal harmonies on Liberation. The album overall is more upbeat than ATLiens, but just as brilliant and probably more catchy (proven by Rosa Parks). After all that you probably couldn't believe it could get better, but Aquimini (the track) is the pick of the whole album. Half of it is slightly ATLiens style (ie slower), but then pauses and becomes re-invigorated with some trumpets- Cool hey?
Yet another classic from the Outkast

After Releasing ATLiens in '96 which is considered by me one of the top 3 greatest albums ever, it seemed nearly impossible to even come close to another album like ATLiens. With all the contreversy surronding Speakerboxxx/Love Below it is good to look back at the 90's and see Outkast's first 3 albums which are all 9+/10, 5 Mics worthy:
1. Hold On, Be Strong- Intro
2. Return of The "G"- The song really showcases Dre, his flow is on point, Big Bwoy is found on the second first but I find myself not enjoying his verse as much as I usually do. Good simple beat with some noises in the back that play with the mind. Lyrics= 9 Beat=10 Flow=9 Total= 9.3
3. Rosa Parks- One of the more popular Outkast songs with a great beat, hook and lyrics. AH-HA baby uhhuh ya ya baby I said Ah-Ha Hush that Fuss, everybody move to the back of the bus. Do you wanna bump and slump with us? We the type of people that make the club get crunk. Lyrics=10 Beat=10 Flow=10 Total=10
4. Skew it on the Bar-B- Raar Ya. Featuring one of my favorite MC's RaEKwOn The Chef, (Wu Wu Wu ), he spits a sick verse, the beat is a crazy dance mix and the hook is one that u gotta sing a long to and everyone comes hard on it. Lyrics=10 (Raekwon), Beat=9, Flow=10. Total= 9.67
5. Aquemini- The title track is easily, the best, song on this album. A slow smooth beat, one of my favorite of all time. Perfection of lyrics, relaxed flow. Perfect. Lyrics=10, Beat=10, Flow=10. Total=10
6. Synthezier- A weird song, but you have to enjoy the synthizer of course to enjoy this song. Dre's second verse is pretty sick. Lyrics=8 Beat= 9 Flow=8 Total=8.3
