Outkast again come ou with a unique style and...it works!,
This review is from: Idlewild (Audio CD)
Again Outkast have come out with a whole new style of music. Not happy with being perhaps the best there ever will be in the hip hop - funk scene, they come out with Idlewild. A magnificent mix of 1930's blues, Jazz, R&B, Hip Hop, and some very funky soul.
When I first bought this album, I didn't know what to expect. I listened to it once through and was gutted. My favourite artists of all time were no longer that, they had brought out a below average album and thoroughly disappointed me.
However, I am at times a very fickle being. For I gave this a second chance and it proved to me, that this may even be Outkasts best work yet. With every listen the lyrics and beats make an ever bigger impact. This is without a doubt in my top 5 albums of all time.
Remember, if you purchase this album, give it time. Finding that this is infact a masterpiece after first thinking of it as a failed experiment, will make this even sweeter.
