Product Description

Amazon.ca

At a time when experimentation is taboo in most overground rap, that’s all Outkast seem intent on executing. Firstly, this double CD has no cohesive link, other than the fact that it sounds like a pair of solo albums stitched together to demo exactly how Andre’s yin works to augment Big Boi’s yang. Andre 3000’s Love Below disc rates as the more eclectic of the two, given that he’s turned in his emcee credentials to become a full-on funk-soul-jazz vocalist who mostly sings about items of love ("Happy Valentine's Day"), carnal lust ("Spread"), and female adoration ("Prototype"). Minus the big band schmaltz of "Love Hater" and cheesy cover jobs ("My Favorite Things"), Andre’s disc is sick (meaning great). As is to be expected, the Big Boi disc is less arty, more gangsta and worldly, and features the less-progressive guest raps of ATL crunk purveyors Lil’ Jon and The Eastside Boyz ("Last Call") and Jay-Z who rhymes the hook on "Flip Flop Rock". Unlike Big Boi, Andre keeps his collabos to a minimum, once crooning alongside Norah Jones on the cool yet sappy "Take Off Your Cool", and once with Kelis. Boi fulfills his Dungeon Family duty with flying colors by flipping some dirty southern up-tempo raps over electro beats on "GhettoMusick". By the time Cee-Lo sermonizes on "Reset", Speakerboxx and Love Below rate mostly as majestic and inspiring, with the remaining 23 per cent being just plain incredible --Dalton Higgins

Product Description

5.0 out of 5 stars Rap crosses over... Feb. 21 2004
Format:Audio CD
I don't know if it's a good thing or not to have Outkast's new CD cross over so well. I mean, you've got 40 somethings who hate rap buying this. Either way, it all means money in the bank for Outkast! This is one of my favorite CDs out right now, along with mr.deviant's "Techno Obsession". Because it's a double album, there's a lot to absorb here, and Outkast's music is so catchy and so well done that it absorbs into the system easily. Which disc is better? Depends on the mood. Speakerboxxx is rap and soul done better than anything done in hip hop for quite some time, and The Love Below is a clever blend of pop, soul and a devilishy sexy sense of humor. The CD contains "Hey Ya!" which was clearly the best jam of 2003. If you're an Outkast fan from the start,this is a no brainer, if you're one of those 40 something cats that digged "Hey Ya!" on the radio, buy with caution! That's the only track like that on this CD and if you're not familiar with the full package that Outkast brings to the table you may be dissapointed...or turned on to some of the best music made today!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dope Sept. 26 2003
By Joe
Format:Audio CD
This is the tightest hip hop album I have heard this year! Outkast only get better with every new release. "Speakerboxxx" and "The Love Below" each have their individual styles, reflecting that of Big Boi and Andre respectively. If you only buy 1 hip hop album this year, make this the one! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

4.0 out of 5 stars SORRY BIG Boi Oct. 2 2005
Format:Audio CD
I tried I really tried to feel Big Bois contribution to the album but I couldn't put down Dre's half. I really applaud Andre' for going out there expanding and taking a blind leap off the edge into the darkness. I don't wanna make it seem like Big Boi didn't do anything its just that I didn't feel him as much as I felt 3000' and belive it or not I enjoy Big Boi on other albums a little more then Dre sometimes.
If you are thinking about buying this album I would say go for it, it's a little different then a lot of there other albums but you will enjoy it.

3.0 out of 5 stars The lyrics July 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
Ok, the lyrics are pointless i must admit but its the music that counts to me! The way they play music is unbelievable!!!! They used to be this wierd band that just came out of nowhere and sang "Sorry Miss Jackson" and that was it!
A few years later, look how much they are proressing! It's like from Model T Ford to Porsche Carrera GT! The first thing was good, at the time!
Roses is a great track and i just love the style of music, piano towards trumpets! Classic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent CDs from both Artists July 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
Both CDs are excellent, Andre has the more slow jamming, girl loving, emotional type of sound that you have to be in the mood for usually, but I love listening to this CD whenever. Big Boi CD on the other hand has that nice Street feel to it with cool beats, awesome lyrics and a fresh sound. I ve been a loyal Outkast ever since "back of the bus" came out and have enjoyed every one of their songs. Pick up this CD, you wont be dissapointed!!
