Quite simply one of the best debut albums ever. Even though their youthful naivety shines through, Q-Tip and Phife both sound positive with out ever swaying to being preachy. The music is the funkiest since the 70's, and everytrack will leave you smiling. One of thoses rare hip hop albums you can listen too all the way through.

11 years on, and the original vinyl still graces my decks with regularity. 'People's..' defined the advent of the native tounges along with technically superior Jungle Brother's follow up 'Done by the forces of nature' and the de la soul debut. But it was the quest who made funky and acceptably light tunes, whilst allowing the hardcore b boy and girl following to chill and nod along to chart bound hits and catchphrases like 'can I kick it'. Q-tip was a world away from the dexterity and maturity he displayed on the subsequent albums, and so was the content, but amongst the bouncy funk were the genesis of quests inimitable style that has carved them a niche in hip hop history. An innovative use of samples and hooks made this easy listening but with a kick and snare that did just that. Quality tunes that still have a place blasting from a system on those hot summer days, from Birmingham to El Segundo..

This is one of my favourite albums alongside Bizarre Ride to the Pharcyde. Both albums share a real enthusiasm and sense of fun that is missing from most current hip-hop albums. Of course the mood reflects the innocent time (before hip hop became commercialised and got heavy with 'gangsters' and shootings etc) but it's really great to listen to something that makes you smile. It's a VERY funky album with intelligent lyrics and ass-moving grooves... just putting on any of these tracks makes me want to move, but After Hours, Bonita Applebum and Description of a Fool make me grin from ear to ear as well as shake my booty. This is music that just doesn't date - like most of the Tribe's stuff. They make it seem so easy, naturally hip and effortless. Knocks spots off of anything else even though it is over 10 years old. If you like old-skool hip hop that has funky flavours, you'll love this.

A year after De La Soul landed with 3 Feet High And Rising (W/Bonus Cd), it was clear that Hip-Hop had something going on which wasn't gangster. Along with De La, and The Jungle Brothers, an alliance was forged known as The Native Tongues which was designed to provide something other than Gangsta Rap, which was popular but not ubiquitous.

At the centre of this movement was A Tribe Called Quest, mixing their funky breaks with neatly lyrical rap lines which focused on something other than the nilhilsim of much of the mainstream. This took rap to somewhere more positive and and playful. It wasn't without messages, but these were different. It was also, crucially, not afraid to have fun and smile at itself. Their, debut album, "People's Instinctive Travels & The Paths Of Rhythm" was a brillant complement to the movement and, more than any other recording so far, tried to put their manifesto across to the masses.

What comes across is a wonderful hazy mix of great samples and simply brilliantly consistent tracks. There really isn't a bad track here from start to finish this is just crammed full of great tunes, brilliant rhymes, an energy and invention missing from so much modern Hip-Hop. This is a very underrated classic. It is crammed with breaks from Slave, to Earth, Wind, & Fire, and Eugene McDaniels (who is plundered heavily) - to name just a few. These tracks underpin all that goes on and even if you're not a massive fan of rap the grooves draw you in better than most. It's also helped by some killer rhymes too. The band are good but the clear star of the show is Q-Tip who remains one of the most appealing laid back rappers ever.

Ok, this is an old album but it still sounds awesome! In fact, i'd go so far as to say that there has not been a hip-hop record before or after this that has bettered it. I long ago left the world of hip-hop as i felt it had started to destroy itself - hoes, pimps, gangsters - this album has none of that. Instead we are treated to a super-sonic blast of social consciounce that leaves the nu-skool bunch like 50 cent and Jay Z out in the cold. Whether you like hip-hop or not, this is a must-have record! Sweet samples mixed with easy, flowing rhymes delivered with humor and grace. Highlights include the much played "Can I Kick It?" and the whole album simply rocks!

Wow what elsa can i say. buy this!!!
