Product Description

Amazon.ca

People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm is, quite simply, one of the finest albums in hip-hop. It's easy to argue that A Tribe Called Quest reached their zenith on this, their debut album: though they went on to produce another world-class disc (The Low End Theory) and broadened their palates and their consciousness, never again were they quite this naturally free and easy. Q-Tip and Phife's delivery is deceptively simple, flowing like wine and tasting like candy, and Jairobi adds some contrast. The music, so self-assured that it never raises its voice to make a spectacle, follows suit. Four albums later, on their last tour, songs from Paths of Rhythm still were at the top of the set list. --Randy Silver

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection Nov. 2 2012
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
I bought tapes and then graduated to CD's, always ignoring viinyl. But for some unknown reason, without a record player in my possession as yet, I've decided to start investing in vinyl. The first vinyl I wanted to purchase had to be a undeniable classic. I chose ATCQ's freshman effort. From a purely subjective perspective this album is perfection. Over 20 years later and I can still listen to each track off this album and be taken to a place no other artistic offering has been able to except for Illmatic. This album is more than just beats and rhymes, it is four young men coming together and embodying a genuine hip hop expression in musical form that you can either identify with or you can't. This review is not to convince you to purchase this album, it is to convey to you how this album has touched me since I first purchased it on tape some 20 odd years ago and how to this day it is even better than when I first heard it. This album transcends hip hop, it takes you on a musical journey you don't ever want to end.

A Tribe Called Quest is one of the greatest groups ever in hip hop, and if you own any of their albums, you know why. This debut album is so great to listen to. At first, I wasn't impressed by it. But after the second listen, I realized that it IS a classic. It was released in 1990 along with other gems that year, and ATCQ certainly made their mark. Here's the review:
Album Highlights: Although there's no filler, the highlights are Luck of Luciei, Can I Kick It, I Left my wallet in El Segundo,and Bonita Applebum.
Production: Thumbs up.
Lyrics and Subject Matter: Thumbs up.
Originality: Thumbs up.
The Last Word: This is a great album, and you should own this it you currently don't have it. ATCQ only got BETTER as the years went by, and this album was a tremendous start in that direction. Strongly recommended.

While this has some great tracks and tunes, I don't think it stands nearly in the same realm as The Low End Theory or Midnight Marauders. A few classic tunes, but lots a filler...
Better than The Love Movement or Q-tip's solo ish. That don't mean much.

5.0 out of 5 stars a TREMENDOUS debut Feb. 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
ATCQ is one of the greatest groups of all time. People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm is one of the greatest debut albums. It is a solid raw album. All four members; Q-Tip, Muhammed and Phife Dog have excellent chemistry. They are synchronized to perfection. They aren't your average artists. People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm is ruled by Q-Tip mainly but Muhammed makes some great beats and Phife had some tremendous lines. The best songs from this amazing album are "Bonita Applebaum" and "Can I Kick It?" They have soome amazing verses
I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this album to ANY hip-hop fan along with the 'Low End Theory"

5.0 out of 5 stars for REAL hip-hop, try this - December 23, 2002 Dec 23 2002
Format:Audio CD
Yeah so if anyone wants to start listening to some real beats and rhymes, check out the Tribe. This stuff is the real deal. The boys representing the NYC put it down like no other crew out there. This cd is their first and possibly their best effort as a group. The whole disc is just loaded with ridiculously fun samples and adlibs that just knocked me off my feet. After the band broke up, Tip put out a pretty good solo record(Amplified), Phife put out a not so good solo record(the name escapes me), and Malik joined an average R&B group(Lucy Pearl). Why they split up, I will never know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Tribe Oct. 28 2002
By Nate
Format:Audio CD
Out of the Tribe's 5 albums, this one is the greatest. The Tribe basically invented rap as we know it now. Tip's solo career is not exactly super-hot, but don't base your decision on Tip. Even though there is little Phife on this album, he's still awesome. Sha is cool too, even though he's not my favorite. There's timeless tribe tracks on this one.

This was a good album. Not a great one, but a good one. The potential is there. Tracks like "Can I kick it?" and "Bonita Applebum" are timeless, no one denies that. But that's it. The rest of the album gets lost and falls short of being a true classic. It doesn't hold up overtime. And where's Phife? He's on maybe four or five tracks, thus very little back-and-forth play between him and Tip. A good effort, but not the classic it's made out to be. That would come later.
