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

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."
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.

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... Read morePublished on May 13 2004 by James L.

Near perfect, as simple as that. Plagued by one or two filler tracks and maybe 1 skit to many, you always have the skip button to get on to the other great 15 tracks. Read morePublished on March 10 2004
