Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

It takes a few listens to sink in, but on Aquemini, Outkast have pulled off a rare feat in hip-hop: they've made a good record that's a masterpiece of subtlety. What's more, it's their third record, and they've yet to fall into a rut--and that alone puts them in line for an award. The Organized Noize production crew is sublime, working with live musicians and crafting hook-filled soundscapes that complement Big Boi and Andre Benjamin's melodic patter. (See "Rosa Parks," "Chonkyfire," and the epic "Liberation" which features Erykah Badu, Cee Lo, and Big Rube--and clocks in at just under nine minutes.) Classy and intelligent, Outkast haven't sacrificed anything in their quest to make challenging, innovative hip-hop that forgoes idle boasting for the duo's message. A sample, from the title track: "Now, question: is every nigga wit dreads for the cause? / Is every nigga wit golds for the fall? Naw / So don't get caught in appearance."--Randy Silver

Format: Audio CD
Aquemini was an album I discovered in retrospect after hearing the commercial & critical hit follow-up Stankonia- which sent me hurtling for that Outkast back-catalogue. The debut Southernplayalisticcadillacmuzik had some great tracks on (Playa's Ball, Git Up/Out, the title track) but was a little indebted to Snoop Dogg; its follow-up Atliens (1996) was rather odd- Outkast stepping into a sonic maelstrom of Sun-Ra & synths. On Aquemini, Big Boi & Andre3000, produced a key Hip-hop album- one that advanced the genre and looked to the future, while at the same time aligning themselves with the best hip-hop, that which played with eclectic sources (samples/styles),eg Afrika Baambaata, De La Soul, Public Enemy, A Tribe Called Quest.
Return of the 'G' is a brilliant opening track, the delivery of Dre & Big Boi is suitably lethal over samples from Giorgio Moroder's soundtrack to exploitative drug classic Midnight Express. For those who adored their Prince/Soul thang on hit Ms Jackson- here they try out this territory with Rosa Parks- that fuses "lacka lacka" with an amusing take on civil rights leader Rosa Parks. No pious soul-sister nonsense like Primal Scream's Star (which assumes RP is dead!), more of a statement saying, forget all that, let's get dirty! Rosa Parks is reportedly sueing at present...
There are some great guests- Wu-Tang's Raekwon on Skew It on the Bar-B, easily one of the great Wu-related tracks of recent years (when the albums became less enjoyable)- up there with Killah Priest's One Step Up, ODB's Recognize or Cappadonna's If It's Alright With You.

Outkast's third album "Aquemini" duly received "The Source's" much revered five mics, which they should already have got for "ATLiens" - but anyway. The reason for labelling this masterpiece the icing of the cake might be the fact that Dre and Big Boi stretch hip hop's boundaries even further than ever before on this one. They do this a) on the lyrical side of things, by coming up with songs consisting entirely of sung lyrics ("Liberation"), and b) by building up a musical landscape consisting of... well, almost everything. From the spaced-out, George Clinton-backed "Synthesizer" to the electric guitar/piano-driven "Chonkyfire", there's something in it for every one of you folks. This is music deserving the term "uplifting". And if originality is a criterion for calling an album a classic, you better make sure to add this to your record collection - whether you're NWA or Herbie Hancock, DMX or Earth Wind & Fire, whatever.

This is the most origional, perfect piece of hip-hop that I have ever heard. It's so unconventional but they still manage to keep it good. I couldn't say a bad thing about this group, their lyrics are amazing and they never seems to get boring. For me, the best tracks are probably "Chonkyfire", "Da Art Of Storytellin' (Part II)" and "Rosa Parks" but any track from this album would be a standout on most others.

Very simply, this is definitely my album of the moment. Clever, laid back lyrics with a melodic beat I can't stop playing it. If I had any criticism it would be the talkovers between tracks. Much love to all those that feel this; and also to those that don't.

this album is fantastic it sounds like an album that came out this year, it doesnt sound like it was released in 1998 at all. the lyrics and rapping is just first class, the rap these days is just not worth listening to

this album will never be forgotten in hip hop history

i reccomend this album to any rap fan
