5.0 out of 5 stars Album of the Year 2 Jan 2004
By A Customer
Format:Vinyl
"Crocodile on my feet; Fox fur on my back; Bowtie around my neck, that's why they call me the gangsta mack in the cadillac"
Big Boi's chorus on Bowtie exemplifies Speakerboxxx. It's that real cool, laid back, southern funk that Outkast do like no one else. The Love Below is another thing entirely. Taking notes from jazz, electro, rock... you name it. Andre 3000 has fused it all together to come up with something really off the wall. While Speakerboxxx is definitely the more accessible to the average hip hop fan, The Love Below is the one half which has been gaining most of the plaudits. It's definitely the more difficult listen, but is all the more rewarding for it. You'll have heard the lead single, Hey Ya, all over the airwaves by now, and this is as mainstream as Andre allows things get.
Speakerboxxx and The Love Below could stand on their own as superb solo albums, but as a whole, they are spectacular. Hip Hop has always been about innovation, but there are few big name rappers about right now that are willing to do that for fear of losing their listeners.
Outkast, however, have come up with the most innovative mainstream album in years. The success Outkast are having just shows how much listeners are appreciating a group willing to spend the time to make something truly exceptional.
For my money, this is the album of the year in any genre. If you don't have it, get it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two New Outkast Albums For The Price Of One!!!! 22 Nov 2004
Format:Audio CD
Speakerboxxx and The Love Below are, for all intents and purposes, two separate albums brought to you lovingly by Big Boi and Andre 3000 respectively.
Outkast fans will be pleased with this bumper package which contains some of the most sparkling and well produced music you will ever hear. Noticeably, Speakerboxxx is the inferior of the two, 'Love Below being a shiny concept album with favourites 'Hey Ya' and 'Roses' thrown in to the mix. Give this album a few listens and you will see that the whole package is an innovative and rewarding experience. Certainly up there with Outkast's best work. Just don't be so sad as to tailor what you listen to depending on whatever 'R+B essential' compilations are out there. Speakerboxxx/The Love Below is fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely fab!!!!!!!!!!!!! 22 Mar 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album was a great suprise to me- because it was cheap I was expecting it to be not so good, but when I put it in my cd player I was amazed. It is by far one of my all-time favourite albums.
Although everyone is ranting and raving about Andre 3000's album, and saying it is the best, I personally much prefer Big Boi's SPEAKERBOXXX. my ratings are:
Ghettomusick-10/10
upbeat, fab chorus and great bassline
Unhappy-10/10
a slower song with great lyrics and deep meaning
Bowtie-10/10
a fun and jazzy song
The way you move-10/10
a classic- good beat, great tune
The rooster-9/10
great trumpet and good lyrics
Bust-8/10
fab song
War-8/10
good issue, meaningful lyrics
Church-10/10
a fab and funky song with a catchy chorus
Tomb of the boom-7/10
alright
Knowing-9/10
this is good stuff
Flip flop rock-10/10
well good song, good beat
Reset-9/10
a bit slower but it is still pure good
Last call-10/10
catchy chorus, good beat, good vibe
As you can tell, it is hard for me to pick a fave song as they are all so good. This album has loads of great beats and bass lines, it also has catchy tunes and hard-hitting lyrics, not just about the usual- guns, girls and cars. I adore 'the way you move' and 'ghettomusick'. This album is by far the better of the two, Andre's one is just plain weird, and i find it too hard to listen to. However, if you get the chance to buy this album then do, you won't regret it. There are fab songs on both albums and it is definitely worth the money! One of the best I own!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this in your speakerbox 5 Oct 2003
Format:Audio CD
One of the few times you can enjoy to get whats expected. We associate Outkast with creativity, music and deviation from the norm. An with their new double CD entitled Speakerboxx/The Love Below we get all that and more.
The album is split in two with each emcee Andre 3000 and Big Boi each having their own CD. There are not many tracks that feature both emcees, if at this point emcees are what you can call these musical dynamos. Andre 3000 does alot of singing and harmonizing on the album.
Its extremely apparent at this point that Outkast is bigger than hip-hop. Tracks such as "Hey YA!" and "Roses" feature full bands where the singing is as much of the music as is the rapping. They take up back to the old school with tracks like "Ghetto Music" and other that contain hints of old school Marvin Gaye type flavor.
Life and spirituality is a major reccuring theme throughout both discs. Andre speaks on his relationship with Erykah Badu on " A day in the life of Andre Benjamin." Tracks like "Reset" featuring Khujo and Big Boi speak on starting over and getting through lifes challenges. "Unhappy" speaks on maintaing through lifes hurdles. Other tracks like "Church" solidify the theme of the importance of spirituality. Other tracks like "War" kick some knowledge about whats going on with America and the world.
But there are club bangers. This is not elevator music, tracks like "Tomb of the Boom" and "Last Call" featuring Lil Jon is defiantely crunk music for the trunk speakerbox.
Get this album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Above
This album is great, as basically you get 2 for one. My preference though was for Andre's The Love Below, smooth mellow rap ballads, which helped me in 2005 to get my head in gear... Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Speakerboxxx = Amazing, The Love Below = Disapointing
I recently purchased "Stankonia" at a second hand CD shop, and I loved it. So I thought I'd buy another Outkast CD as I enjoyed it and wanted to hear more of them. Read more
