Out of print in the U.S.! 2007 UK reissue of this 2001 album from the Norfolk, Virginia Hip Hop duo featuring Timbaland, who would soon become one of the biggest producers in the R&B and Hip Hop field. Originally released in 2001. Indecent Proposal features some of the most inventive production in Hip Hop, certainly years before it's time. Includes guest appearances from Aaliya, Jay-Z, Ludacris, Petey Pablo, Jade and others. Universal.
Praised by trans-global knob twiddlers for his schizophrenic, digitalised, genre-bending soundscapes that were first heard on Ginuwine's "Pony", one would expect Timbaland's Indecent Proposal to employ the same hit-making formula, right? Well, yes and no. On Timbaland's third release with rhyme collaborator Magoo, his drum programming and beat structures continue on their funkified futuristic trajectories on "Humin", an ode to club hoppers who forget to use their Listerine, and "People Like Myself" with its off-kilter Middle Eastern samples. However, the jury's been out on the nasal-toned, Q-Tip sound-alike Magoo since 1998's Tim's Bio and Tim's commitment to introduce a re-tooled Magoo to the rap public's jaded consciousness is part of the problem with this release. As the featured emcee on a large bulk of the tracks, Magoo's mic skills get outclassed most of the time by invited guests such as Jay-Z and Tung Twista on "Party People" and Ludacris on "Considerate Brother."
Magoo's shortcomings notwithstanding, Indecent Proposal is a must purchase for many reasons. It provides contemporary beatmakers with some more lessons in futuristic beat construction (peep "Indian Carpet"); there's a hot collaboration featuring singer-songwriter Beck on a duet with the late Aaliyah ("I'm Music") and more lovely ballads by Aaliyah ("Love Me"). Lastly, Tim claims that he will not be releasing any more albums after this one so here's your chance to cop the last full length recording from one of the most eclectic producers in the contemporary rap and R&B game. --Dalton Higgins

This album doesn't really live up to the expectations of some, proving that Timbaland hasn't given his all on this album and on the contrary deciding to let his "B-side" tracks control the majority of this album.
Fortunately, Timbaland and Magoo do have some hidden beauties in the form of "All Y'all" and the sonic-filled "I am music" which does show that Timbaland can produce a few good tracks on his own work should the appropriate single be required to attract the ever-so widening audience.
Overall I recommend this album to the new generation of hip-hop lovers and the hardcore Timbo' followers but unfortunately this album has more filler than killer which could leave some listeners with an impression of someone with great potential yet to display full potential through his own work and collaborations.
This man is a Genious!
He is by far the most Innovative (Futuristic) producer of our time! I would rate the Neptunes next but Tim will be always 1st! Timbaland has been Beating ...down for the last 6, he is entitled to one mistake! I cannot believe he lacked on his own project. And where was Magoo? I was really looking forward to hearing the two comedian's bounce off one another. This album has entirely to much Petey Pablo and I really don't like his voice. Also the album comes off as a compilation of Outtakes of others albums he produced. The first 6 tracks are Hot to death and then the album takes a generic turn for the worst. Then it picks up a bit with the Tweet song "Love Me" and AAliyah's "I am Music". This really shocks me considering the first album was so creative throughout and had alot of MAgoo? This could have been a return of the Dynamic Duo and it was ruined by to many guest appearances and some spare tracks. Tims Bio, is a far more satifying effort even without Magoo's presence all the way through. We all know that Timbaland never stops Beating these Ni**az up side the head! Your still the man though everyone knows. He proved that on Missy's "Under Construction" and definitley on Justin Timberlake's "Cry me a River!" Also we must not forget the superior "MS Jade- Girl Interupted LP!" Which is Bangin' from start to finish! Timbaland probably was having Girlfriend Problems or a Kool Aid Break! Please don't "Beat" us down or hurt us to hard Tim" we know you are coming for Revenge it's already here! And it started with Ms Jade, which is a masterpiece in the Timbaland production Archieves!
This album however, smolders with the smell of......... I am so very very disappointed. I bought the album without hearing (or so I thought) a single track on it. Why? Cuz I am a die hard Timmy fan. To me this track consists of the tracks that didn't make the cut on Petey Pablo's brilliant album and "fluff" that has been sitting around in the studio. I feel this is a compilation of 2nd rate Timmy tracks. That is what it sounds like. The beats are....well.....(god it pains me to say this) ALMOST there. The whole album feels like a "close but no cigar" kinda thing. I see where it wants to be but, it just NEVER gets there. Its SOOOOOO disappointing.
Also, contrary to what everyone else thinks, I would have liked to see Magoo in more tracks. I like him a lot and he BARELY shows up. When he does its very amusing but, well, it just stinks. I FORCED myself to listen to it for about 3 weeks and everything is just so....typical. Nothing jumps out at you. I mean even the Nappy Roots album has a FEW good tracks. I would be hard pressed to find any on this one. I will STILL buy the next one but this one leaves me cold.
Buyer beware, hit WINMX or Kazaa first before dropping your hard earned bucks on this one. I am sorry to write this but, this album for me just falls flat.
Timbaland really tries hard to be taken seriously as a rapper on this album. First he starts referring to himself as Thomas Crown and Phil Drummond. (So anyway...) His flow has improved a little, but he still doesn't have anything interesting to say. In fact, his lyrics here are so bland that they make "Ritz is the crackers that I eat" sound groundbreaking. Also, songs like "Roll Out" and "Serious" have Tim rapping louder than M.O.P. That's a little off the deep end, if you ask me.
I really don't see the purpose of Magoo on here or any other album. Although his flow is a little better here also, he still fails to hold any listener's interest. And the things he says are always dumb, but when you hear him talking about sex in songs like "It's Your Night" and "Considerate Brotha" you'll feel like throwing your whole stereo out the window. Also, "In Time" features the lyric: "N's got the feeling I'm wack and I fell off." Well the wack part is true, but how can you fall off if you were never on top?
Production is also a flaw. Tim's beats are surprisingly not as good as they usually are. "It's Your Night" and "People Like Myself" have too much keyboard business, and the beat to "Party People" is so disorganized that you'll be wondering if your CD is skipping.Read more ›

Timbaland should stick to producing mug can't rap worth a phukk, but I advise this for all his loyal fans and if you like magoo cop it too.Published on Oct. 8 2002 by Sherance M. Brothers
I can pretty much consider myself a fan of Timbaland because, musically, his style is much different than a lot of the hip-hop producers in the game right now. Read morePublished on Aug. 31 2002 by Niggarachi
This CD is so dope. I'm a huge fan of Timbaland's music and his productions, but since I haven't heard his entire first album, I can't do any comparison. Read morePublished on April 16 2002 by Brian Davis

There are some good club songs on this, and it's good but the sound is a bit same-ish, and even the collaborations with people like Ludacris and Petey Pablo can't hide that. Read morePublished on Feb. 10 2002 by firstname.lastname@example.org
