Product Description

Amazon.ca

With their fourth-album, Outkast invoke the rebel Southern spirit to full effect. Realising there is something rotten in the state of hip hop, the Atlantan local heroes have staked out their own territory, Stankonia, a Utopian republic representing the best of the Dirty South. As if in tribute to Funkadelic's America Eats Its Young , the album cover finds Dre and Big Boi staring out in front of a black and white stars and stripes. Inside they waste no time in revealing their radical agenda. "Don't everyone like the smell of gasoline?" hollers Andre 3000 on opener "Gasoline Dreams", as he sets fire to the constitution over a scorching electric guitar. The single "B.O.B." (aka "Bombs Over Baghdad") is Outkast's state-of-the-union address, a rousing gothic gospel number that advocates a "power music electric revival" as it approaches the speed of Reprazent's "Who Told You" and the epic feel of "Bohemian Rhapsody". On "Miss Jackson", they assume the role of exemplary southern Gentleman begging forgiveness from their hoochie's mama over a backing with spooky shades of Prince's "When Doves Cry". Elsewhere they eschew tradition (on tracks like "?", "Snappin & Trappin" and the B-Real-guesting "Xplosion") to invest their dirty funk with a distinctly avant-garde afro-sheen. Come election day, just sniff this stank to inhale freedom. --Chris Campion

4.0 out of 5 stars Outkast = originality. May 16 2004
By Danny
Format:Audio CD
I haven't listened to rap that much ever since I delved into the world of music where artists actually sing and use instruments, but Outkast is the exception to the rule. They're pretty much the only two rappers I'll take the time out to listen to these days. Why? Originality. When Stankonia was released, it was exactly what hip-hop needed, but nobody followed through with it and the same garbage was still being released by other rappers with zero inspiration. Ah, well. More limelight for Andre and Big Boi.
I really dig ATLiens, but it's here where Outkast started to perfect their formula. I'd consider them the most revolutionary musical group of the past few years if other artists were to actually take a hint from them and try experimenting with their music. But, since most of it is still "bling bling, jiggy" rap, nothing happened. Outkast remains a bright light in an otherwise messy and redundant genre of music. Ms. Jackson, BOB and Humble Mumble were three of the best songs to come out of the rap genre since Death Row's glory days.
It's not a perfect album, but I commend these two guys for trying something a little different. Everything would come full circle for them on their 2003 masterpiece, "Speakerboxxx/The Love Below."

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!! Feb. 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
Before I start my review, let me say this. This is the worst CD Outkast has released. And that's saying a lot considering it is still worth 4.5 to 5 stars, depending on your taste. The thing that brings this CD down is the unnecessary skits and a couple of too experimental tracks. This album is still amazing though. No matter how you look at it, Outkast cannot be topped. I've been a loyal Outkast fan since 1996. I admit I didn't really appreciate Southernplayalistic at the time it dropped, but I was only 14 in 1994. Anyway, for those of you who are just starting to get into Outkast, buy their previous releases (especially ATLiens). Not to take attention away from this album, but ATLiens has to be the most conceptual album ever produced in hip-hop. Hey, it's one thing for a group to be liked here and there (Dogg Pound, ATCQ, De La Soul, etc.), but never has one group transcended as many cultures and genres of music like Outkast (listen to first album to understand their definition of what an outcast is). Even parents love them and that's saying a lot. Check'em out for yourself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite a few good songs Jan. 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is a pretty good album. If you don't mind hitting the skip button, you will probably be pretty pleased. I kind of wish they could have cut out all the skits and whatnot, and maybe cut some fat with regard to the music. It's too bad that they let other rappers into the recording booth. Andre 3000 and Big Boi are decent rappers, making them better than the people they let guest on the album. Killer Mike? What is this pennis doing in front of a mic? One dude sounded like he was from Cypress Hill. Shame!
Enough badmouthing. There's some pretty good music here. BOB is totally awesome and rad, plus it was topical! I was kind of ashamed when some kids I know were playing this song a lot during that whole what-have-you. Those guys must also like film music with lyrics that describe what's going on in the movie. Gasoline Dreams and whatever were released as singles are also good. The music never approaches bad except for when there's a guest MC.
Outkast needs to make a short, totally awesome album loaded with songs as fully formed and awesome as BOB. No skits, guest MCs or filler. If they made something like that, it would totally stand the test of time and become a classic.

4.0 out of 5 stars The saga continues.......... Jan. 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
I read a comment on a message board somewhere that really resonated with me; Outkast is to the late 90's what A Tribe Called Quest was to the realy 90's; one of the best analogies I've ever heard. In a hip hop world gone mad and drunk with power,self indulgence,and ego, Outkast are the only group in the mainstream doing and thinking outside the box. They refuse to compromise;the greatest thing abut them is that you can't cage them into mediocrity. Of their first four albums, I would rank this third, because Aquemeni and the brilliant ATLiens are so strong. On Stankonia, they have basically thrown everything in a pot, let it sit for a while, THEN stirred it up. The drum and bass inspired "B.O.B"(how ironic,since the letters stand for Bombs Over Bagdhad,considering the recent events in the Middle East), the pertinent sing-alongs of "So Fresh,So Clean", "We Love These Hoes" and "Humble Mumble" make the listening experience all worthwhile. Speaking of sing alongs, one song that is instantly catchy is "Ms. Jackson";it's a open letter addressed to the grandmother of their children, stating even though the relationship didn't work out, they will be in the lives of their offspring. Outkast have adopted the Public Enemy philosophy of creativity; catch the audience with the beat first, then the message later.
