If you are like me and are seriously put off by the foul-mouthed, talentless idiots who dominate the genre these days buy this to remind yourself that hip-hop used to be a creative and above all fun.
This isn´t is the most ground-breaking of Tribe´s records but it´s certainly the most enjoyable. What I like about this group is their adherance to the roots of black music, the heavily jazz-infused beats and rhythms. Lyrically, this album is about expressing an identity, it´s doesn´t promote or glorify a lifetstyle. Basically it´s a lot of fun, music to party to,"Award Tour," with it´s clanging, bustling beat is a good example of this. "Sucka Nigga," is a bit different, a light hearted attack on those with an indentity crisis. "Electric relaxation," remains one of my favourite tracks, I love the slick swinging rhythm, the lyrics are light-hearted and fun.
"Clap your hands," is another example of this group´s excellent control of rhythm. One of the finest tracks has to be the sprawling,"God lives through," which showcases the dexterity of their delivery as MC´s.
A Tribe called Quest are one of those acts who were able to appeal to people who like other musical genres because of the positive all inclusive message of their music. Well over a decade after it´s release it retains it´s freshness and for me is one of the finest rap records of all time

This album is, infact The Bomb.
My guitar teacher introduced me to it several years ago and it is partially due to this album that i stopped listening to only nirvana and woke up and listened to other styles.
Enough of me, the album is a work of art from start to finish - it is basically a collection of anecdotal stories on life, without excessive swearing or talking about ho's and jewellery, set to a background of jazz sampling, organic beats. This is the best work i've heard from ATCQ, and has consistantly entertained me every time i've listened - as i'm sure it has everybody else who loves hip hop in this style.
LOVE IT!!

This is by far the best Tribe Called Quest album. It encapsulates the band at the height of their creative powers, with some outstanding verbal deliveries and superbly jazzy melodies. The lyrical exchanges between Phife and Q-Tip are the highlight, especially on tracks such as 'Oh My God' and 'We Can Get Down.' But the album highlight has to be 'Award Tour.' The Tribe never just played it for laughs, as they were often judged to do so. 'Sucka Nigga' for example, shows that the Tribe were never scared to be political. The uses of samples on this record are perhaps the finest examples of the medium, with some amazingly catchy hooks and melodies snatched from any number of obscure sources - just showing that you don't need to sample an obvious pop song (hands up Puff Daddy) to make a record infectious.

Format: Audio CD
1993, a year of classic hip hop albums, east and west coast were releasing grounbreaking ones. Native Tongues were in full effect and A Tribe Called Quest, with already two classics under their name brought out their third album - Midnight Marauders.

Beats: Mostly produced by Ali Shaheed Muhammad, the beats focus on jazz samples, from all types of older music like Kool And The Gang, and Weldon Irvine. Large Professor has a producer guest spot on 'Keep It Rollin,' without interrupting the flow between each track. The beats compliment Phife's and Q-Tip's smooth flow perfectly, and the DJ scratches from Shaheed are exceptional, complete genius. Heavy drums, horn samples, pianos, and tight basslines make the instrumentals a 10/10.

Rhymes: Q-Tip and Phife are one the greatest duo's in hip hop ever. Phife has so many classic hip hop quotes on this album, and Q-Tip shows his conscious style on 'Sucka Nigga,' a track about the use of the word nigga:

'Now the little shorties say it all of the time
And a whole bunch of niggas throw the word in they rhyme
Yo I start to flinch, as I try not to say it
But my lips is like the oowop as I start to spray it'

Tip, Phife, and Ali Shaheed create laidback, dark, upbeat, smooth, conscious tracks on this album, which are all brilliant tracks. It is not often when you love every track on an album, but Midnight Marauders is a perfect example.

This is alternative hip hop at its best, simply flawless.

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By EternalBroadcaster on 2 Oct. 2006
Format: Audio CD
For me, this is Tribe's masterpiece... an album of such pure quality that is dazzles to this day. In fact, in comparison to the bulk of today's heavily marketed, over-produced, incoherent Hip Hop albums, it deserves a 6th star. It's takes the form of a trip through after-hours New York, with a computerised voice as your tour guide. The basslines on this album are amazing, and perhaps this album should have been called the Low End Theory Part 2, as ATCQ revisit the formula of samples and snares. The music influences as always, veer from Jazz to Soul, but always remain resolutely Hip Hop and resolutely fresh. There aren't a plethora of guest spots by the latest 'Hot' rappers, just a verse from Large Professor and a chorus from Busta Rhymes (from when he was A Leader Of The New School, and not an Aftermath 'gangsta').

In summary, it's genius. But don't take my word for it, buy the album.
