5.0 out of 5 stars Too Good To Describe In Words, 16 Nov. 2003
This review is from: Speakerboxxx/The Love Below (Audio CD)
There is not a great to say about this that hasn't been said already except it's every bit as good the other reviews make out.
Big Boi's "Speakerboxx" alone would have made for very satisfactory and actually damn satisfying follow-up to the excellent "Stankonia". Indeed, it is more in a similar vein to the aforementioned album; fantastic envelope-pushing hip-hop with a mix of funky groovers ("Bowtie", "The Way You Move"), thundering stompers ("Ghettomusick") and thought-provokers ("War").
Andre 3000's "The Love Below" is absolutely mind-blowing. Even having read all the reviews I was not prepared for anything this experimental, seemingly unrelated to anything else going on in music right now and damn better for it. It's the kind of music that makes you feel that most of your remaining music collection is a little less relevant than it was before.
But, as I say, so much has been said about it I only want to make the following comments:
1.As soon as it started I had a huge smile on my face that didn't leave until long after the album had finished.
2."Love Hater" and "Hey Ya" almost had me dancing down Oxford Street yesterday afternoon.
3.At the same time as I bought this I also got the Beatles rather splendid "Rubber Soul". Despite this, right now, I only want to listen to Outkast.
4.A couple of weeks ago I bought The Beatles' "White Album", Flaming Lips "Soft Bulletin" and Love's "Forever Changes"; all classics in their own right. Frankly, great as they are, I prefer "The Love Below".
In case you haven't worked it out yet, I kinda recommend this...
