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

5.0 out of 5 stars KAST HAS ALWAYS PROVIDED US WITH THE BEST Sept. 21 2004
By MTLiens
Format:Audio CD
This sint my favourite OutKast Cd but its up there. I loved all of their stuff. This is an amaaaaazing CD. I am so tired from writing a long review for ATLiens, go get that and this right now. This CD's stand out tracks are B.O.B. That was voted best OutKast song. The lyrics in Ms. Jackson are so good. Don't be a hater because OutKast is different from what you're used to. What are you scared of? Think you will lose your cool if you stop listening to 50 Cent? Oh yeah. Spaghetti Junction is Craaaaazy too. Alright I'm singing off. I hope I helped you make a choice. The right choice would be to pick this and all the other OutKast CDs up right now!!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Ok Stankonia 4 1/2 June 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album may take you some time getting used to because its really not in the same unison as their other three classics Atliens, Southernplayastic, and Aquemini (Get this these first so you can hear the real Outkast sound). If you have the first three then you?ll get the feeling that this is a turn left from other three classics as far as song structure and content. Then you may want to throw it away, but give it another listen and trust me the songs will start growing on you. My advice is if you do not like their previous releases then do not get it! But if you do, and like Andre?s singing, like me, then give it a listen.
P.S. On this album you can see where Andre started his singing career.

5.0 out of 5 stars My review is true June 3 2004
By Nick
Format:Audio CD
This is a great album to show how outkast is not the same on every album. There songs are a little different from their first two cd's but its just as good. This is a very good loooong cd with 24 tracks. It has many already classic songs on it and i definetley recommend you go pick this album up.

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 Best record since One Nation May 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
A true tribute to the spirit of 70's Funkadelic and Parliament, this record is to hip-hop what One Nation Under a Groove was to disco/funk, what Band of Gypsies was to psychedelic rock, a realization of dreams and a triumph of imagination. Realistic in its balance of positive and negative energies, fear and hope, love and hate, orgasm and the bowel-gripping fear of death. Frightening and exhilarating in its realizations of possibilities of the expressive power of music. So powerful that it could not help but be a popular success as well as critical. Like Mozart or Ellington, it is the real thing of its day. Do not deny the power of love.

5.0 out of 5 stars best c.d. I've ever heard!!!! May 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album is one of the best hip-hop albums ever. I first got
this back in 2000 when it first came out. I was only 12 years old. I have to admit, when I first got it, I didn't like it because I didn't appreciate real music when I heard it, and growing up in the hood, I was used to listening to crunk, club music. But as I listened to it, I fell in love with it. I'm 16 now, and OutKast are my favorite rappers . This album is one of the few rap albums with real meaning to it. If I had to represent hip-hop with one c.d., this would be it. Bottom line, if you are thinking about getting this c.d., take it from me, you won't be sorry.
