Product Description

A Tribe Called Quest ~ Love Movement

Tribe's last album--they announced their breakup just prior to its release--has all of the problems of Midnight Marauders and Beats, Rhymes, and Life: they're just not People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm or The Low End Theory, Tribe's first two releases. That said, so what? Late-era Tribe is still a force to be reckoned with, even if it's not as much fun or doesn't have all the possibilities of Phife Dog, Q-Tip, and Ali Shaheed Muhammad's early work. The Love Movement's backing tracks recall previous releases but tend to be subtler--and therefore less than memorable--and a few of the tracks here are almost indistinguishable from one another. Q-Tip and Phife Dog bust out with few catch phrases (the exception is "Give Me," on which they rhyme "Boyz II Men, ABC, BBD--naw, we ain't none of them"); overall, they sound more mature than ever before. Are they really? At times, yes, and it seems that maturity is one of hip-hop's few unforgivable sins. --Randy Silver

Stop complaining that this album is not People's Instinctive Travels or Low End Theory because that's not even what they're trying to do. I think they are trying to change their sound and project a more mature and modern image, as is represented in the well done but completely unexpected album cover design that probably alienated a lot of fans. That being said, I don't know whether they completely succeeded in their image transformation (which got off to a good start with Beats Rhymes and Life). Although Q-Tip, as always, has very strong artistic intent, I think he has gotten worse as a rapper, or at least incredibly uneven, because he gets away with saying some very weak rhymes. Phife, on a couple songs, seems distracted or disinterested during the call and response, like he got woke up to make the album and was just trying to sound good. The group does have some great moments, which are improved further by the constant appearances of Busta Rhymes, who is one of rap's most consistently jaw-dropping acrobats. Some of the other guests seem out of place, like Noreaga, and the guitar thing is just OK.
I think Q-Tip's UMMAH production thing works well. The beats on this album are very different than most of the previous work, but the concept for this album's sterile and laid back backing tracks is far more solid than the lyrics spit over them ("make me feel special like a prominent man"). Also, most of the bonus tracks are great, but I think maybe they were just trying to release all their stuff to get out of their record deal, not looking forward to the two or three subsequent albums of rereleased tracks that reeked of commericalism.

The reviewer who said "this album isn't as close to as great as their previous 3" has no place calling himself "probably the world's greatest tribe fan." Tribe put out 4 albums before The Love Movement, not 3.
Now that I got that off of my chest, I think the Love Movement is highly underrated. I think the members of Tribe knew exactly how they wanted to go out: subtly and smoothly. If you listen closely, you'll find that this album contains the same social consciousness that made them famous, particularly on tracks such as "The Love" and perhaps less obviously on songs such as "Give Me." But the most important statement this album makes is about love on all levels, a message that doesn't always have to come in a complex package. And quite simply, this is one of the most chill albums ever made.
Is "The Love Movement" their best work? Probably not. Is it a darn good hip hop album? You better believe it. All who were disappointed in this album should give it another spin.
I can't wait till Tribe makes their new millenium comeback in a few months...
By the way, to the reviewer who only counted 3 previous works, the one you left off is Beats, Rhymes, and Life, another underappreciated album.

The Love Movement
A Tribe Called Quest

1. Start It Up 4.5 (classic tribe start of the lp track)
2. Find a Way 4.5 (tip and phife's voices perfect together)
3. Booty 4.0 (good concept keeps the lp movin')
4. Steppin' It Up - Redman 4.5 (if every track had the energy this one had this lp would be a classic)
5. Like It Like That 3.0 (the only good thing about this song is the chill out type beat)
6. Common Ground 3.5 (good concept, the beat is decent what's with the cheap kazoo effect?)
7. Moms - Spanky 4.5 (solid instrumental track)
8. His Name Is Mutty Ranks 3.5 (oddly placed phife freestyle)
9. Give Me - 3.0 (this track didn't do much for me a bit corny at times, tip gets a bit whiney on this one)
10. Pad & Pen 4.5 (I love this beat the samples they use are perfect)
11. Busta's Lament 4.0 (solid track keeps the lp movin.
12. Hot 4 U 4.0 (decent track fits the project well tip and phife alternate lyrics again what they do best.)
13. Against the World 4.0 (tip and phife together again always makes it better)
14. Love 5.0 (this is the best track on the lp, it's on this track that you can tell why they walked away when they did they weren't feeling it anymore, but this song tells you why they do it for the love of it not for the love of money.)
15. Rock Rock Y'all - Mos Def 4.0 (solid posse cut that stays with the feel of the lp.
the bonus cuts are all worth a listen. for some reason tribe sounds better with time anything they did was classic wether the source or jive or haters say anything different. I remember when midnight marauders was slept on and misunderstood and a few years later it was labeled a classic.

Why did this group break up. It saddens me that such a great Hip-Hop group just calls it quits. But with their last release THE LOVE MOVEMENT, after 4 classic albums, they end the saga with nothing but a basic-offering of music. Not that this album is whack, of course it isn't. It's just not the Tribe Called Quest we've grown to love. But this final album offers some pretty good songs. Like : STEPPIN IT UP, LIKE IT LIKE THAT, COMMON GROUND, HIS NAME IS MUTTY RANKS, BUSTA'S LAMENT ( great beat ), HOT 4 U, AGAINST THE WORLD, THE LOVE and the albums gem FIND A WAY for its ol' school feel of word play by Q-Tip & Phife. I also didn't like the fact that they ended the streak of album cover designs. With all of the albums, they had sort of an artistic feel to them. Portraying that the album is a work of art. THE LOVE MOVEMENT is just a plain white cover. I really was looking forward to the album cover cause the cover on BEATS, RHYMES AND LIFE was magnificent. So overall, THE LOVE MOVEMENT has its moments, but it's just not a classic offering by Tribe which they did every time. But the extra tracks at the end like SCENARIO ( REMIX ), MONEY MAKER, HOT SEX and ONE TWO S*** really makes this an album all questers should have.
