Product Description

Amazon.ca

Tribe's last album--they announced their breakup just prior to its release--has all of the problems of Midnight Marauders and Beats, Rhymes, and Life: they're just not People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm or The Low End Theory, Tribe's first two releases. That said, so what? Late-era Tribe is still a force to be reckoned with, even if it's not as much fun or doesn't have all the possibilities of Phife Dog, Q-Tip, and Ali Shaheed Muhammad's early work. The Love Movement's backing tracks recall previous releases but tend to be subtler--and therefore less than memorable--and a few of the tracks here are almost indistinguishable from one another. Q-Tip and Phife Dog bust out with few catch phrases (the exception is "Give Me," on which they rhyme "Boyz II Men, ABC, BBD--naw, we ain't none of them"); overall, they sound more mature than ever before. Are they really? At times, yes, and it seems that maturity is one of hip-hop's few unforgivable sins. --Randy Silver

2.0 out of 5 stars A Tribe Called Quest - The Love Movement June 25 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album is, to be frank, boring. Two stars were added because of the inclusion of the bonus tracks such as "Hot Sex" from the "Boomerang" soundtrack and the hard-to-find classic remix to "Scenario" (but the "Oh My God" remix is wack). On the other hand, those old-school tracks placed with these newer songs show just how much Tribe has fallen off. The newer songs feature boring production that makes every song sound the same and Q-Tip and Phife sound like they came in the studio saying, "All right, but this is the last time." This was supposed to be their swan song but they tried to make a comeback in 2003.

4.0 out of 5 stars (3 1/2 stars) don't misunderstand this June 23 2004
By B
Format:Audio CD
Stop complaining that this album is not People's Instinctive Travels or Low End Theory because that's not even what they're trying to do. I think they are trying to change their sound and project a more mature and modern image, as is represented in the well done but completely unexpected album cover design that probably alienated a lot of fans. That being said, I don't know whether they completely succeeded in their image transformation (which got off to a good start with Beats Rhymes and Life). Although Q-Tip, as always, has very strong artistic intent, I think he has gotten worse as a rapper, or at least incredibly uneven, because he gets away with saying some very weak rhymes. Phife, on a couple songs, seems distracted or disinterested during the call and response, like he got woke up to make the album and was just trying to sound good. The group does have some great moments, which are improved further by the constant appearances of Busta Rhymes, who is one of rap's most consistently jaw-dropping acrobats. Some of the other guests seem out of place, like Noreaga, and the guitar thing is just OK.
I think Q-Tip's UMMAH production thing works well. The beats on this album are very different than most of the previous work, but the concept for this album's sterile and laid back backing tracks is far more solid than the lyrics spit over them ("make me feel special like a prominent man"). Also, most of the bonus tracks are great, but I think maybe they were just trying to release all their stuff to get out of their record deal, not looking forward to the two or three subsequent albums of rereleased tracks that reeked of commericalism.

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated art April 21 2004
Format:Audio CD
The reviewer who said "this album isn't as close to as great as their previous 3" has no place calling himself "probably the world's greatest tribe fan." Tribe put out 4 albums before The Love Movement, not 3.
Now that I got that off of my chest, I think the Love Movement is highly underrated. I think the members of Tribe knew exactly how they wanted to go out: subtly and smoothly. If you listen closely, you'll find that this album contains the same social consciousness that made them famous, particularly on tracks such as "The Love" and perhaps less obviously on songs such as "Give Me." But the most important statement this album makes is about love on all levels, a message that doesn't always have to come in a complex package. And quite simply, this is one of the most chill albums ever made.
Is "The Love Movement" their best work? Probably not. Is it a darn good hip hop album? You better believe it. All who were disappointed in this album should give it another spin.
I can't wait till Tribe makes their new millenium comeback in a few months...
By the way, to the reviewer who only counted 3 previous works, the one you left off is Beats, Rhymes, and Life, another underappreciated album.

2.0 out of 5 stars Exceptionally boring album Feb. 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
I just picked up this LP from Open Mind Records down on Divisdero...and I'm really apalled how boring this album is.
90% of these songs could be considered "hip-hop for young children." Seriously vanilla and lackluster for an adult.
No twists, no turns, nothing but plodding avergage beats. And super-redundant rhymes.
"yes yes y'all it's like this, yes yes ya'll it's like that"
...even the call and response is devoid of creativity and originality.
Hey 'Tribe Called Coma' -- if you want to put out a record that is not full of machismo, sexism and played-out commercial wackness, that's great. But don't put out a record that would put my grandma to sleep. Don't put out a record deviod of balls or any kind of inspiration.
Don't purchase this record unless you like really bad kiddie hip-hop. And that's coming from a real Fat Boys fan, so you know that I'm not hating on less-serious stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tribe is good stuff... Feb. 4 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I don't care what nayone says. I get tired of all that bs about how all of tribes albums can't compare to their first 2. All tribe stuff is good stuff...This cd is good. It's just put together differently than their earlier works.

4.0 out of 5 stars one of their best, yet could've been better July 16 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Love Movement
A Tribe Called Quest

1. Start It Up 4.5 (classic tribe start of the lp track)
2. Find a Way 4.5 (tip and phife's voices perfect together)
3. Booty 4.0 (good concept keeps the lp movin')
4. Steppin' It Up - Redman 4.5 (if every track had the energy this one had this lp would be a classic)
5. Like It Like That 3.0 (the only good thing about this song is the chill out type beat)
6. Common Ground 3.5 (good concept, the beat is decent what's with the cheap kazoo effect?)
7. Moms - Spanky 4.5 (solid instrumental track)
8. His Name Is Mutty Ranks 3.5 (oddly placed phife freestyle)
9. Give Me - 3.0 (this track didn't do much for me a bit corny at times, tip gets a bit whiney on this one)
10. Pad & Pen 4.5 (I love this beat the samples they use are perfect)
11. Busta's Lament 4.0 (solid track keeps the lp movin.
12. Hot 4 U 4.0 (decent track fits the project well tip and phife alternate lyrics again what they do best.)
13. Against the World 4.0 (tip and phife together again always makes it better)
14. Love 5.0 (this is the best track on the lp, it's on this track that you can tell why they walked away when they did they weren't feeling it anymore, but this song tells you why they do it for the love of it not for the love of money.)
15. Rock Rock Y'all - Mos Def 4.0 (solid posse cut that stays with the feel of the lp.
the bonus cuts are all worth a listen. for some reason tribe sounds better with time anything they did was classic wether the source or jive or haters say anything different. I remember when midnight marauders was slept on and misunderstood and a few years later it was labeled a classic.
