Dungeon Family ~ Even In Darkness
Dungeon Family is the name given to the group of Atlanta-based artists that include The Goodie Mob, Outkast and production wizards Organized Noize and Even In Darkness is their debut album as a collective. Successive individual releases by all members have given the Dirty South several new dimensions (political, spiritual, psychedelic) and, following on from Outkast's mega platinum Stankonia, this is an eagerly anticipated collaboration. It easily lives up to expectations, teeming with musically variety from the heaven sent doo wop of "Rollin'" to the 2-step influences that feed into "Emergency" and the sensual grooves of the neo-gospel "Follow The Light". The family's warped genius fuels lyrics that are quirky and threatening, funny and ominous, sometimes in the same song, like the searing manifesto "What Iz Rap". Complex but tuneful, thoughtful but implacable Dungeon Family uncovers many paths of freedom in the heart of hardcore hip-hop. --Gavin Martin

Is the mcing good? Yes. It's tight. Each dude has a great voice. Each dude has their own style. As a collective, they work in perfect unison without ever stealing tracks or going off the plot. The rhymes are fast, funny, witty and damn good.
Whats the music like? Its good too. Its different. What would you expect from a collective called 'dungeon family'? Some of the tracks are a little darker, but then some are upbeat and awesome. Nearly each track is pressed hard with rap, but etched with soul vibes. You never really know if your rapping or singing along.
Lastability? I bought this months ago. It took me a short while to warm to the entire album. Gradually I found myself liking more and more songs until it lay dorment in my cd wallet for around 2 months. When I pulled it out and played it, I couldnt believe I had put it away for so long. I was in one of those situations where i kept finding tracks I'd never really given a chance, and then loving them. This album is a great album (in the original sense of the word). There are no fillers here. Its all gold.
Anything else? Not really. What else do you need to know? The production is tight. The beats are tight. The mcing is tight. Its both old and new skool combined. Its hardcore rap and soul gelled as one. Its easy to listen to, but holds so much in it. this is a hidden gem. A diamond in the rough.
And it does say on another review that Ludacris is in the group, but he isnt even remotly involved with the dungeon family!!
Trans DF Express is just like Whole World to be honest it has that catchy hook and flowing lyrics that appear when the DF get together. I actually prefer the voice of Killer Mike to Big Boi but it seems that Big Boi is better at very intricate lyrics, Andre has probably the most random lyrics that just redefine cool. Hippy to hop like a digi log frog throw me the cat and ill throw you the dog. exactly what that means i have no idea but its genius.
the songs are well amazing really its hard to describe unless you have Outkast before. I can Only stress that it is not like the Chronic in anyway whatsoever even though its a similar posse gathering style album. its East coast Sourthen Atlanta rap that kinda has you singing along in a couple of minutes, nonsense and catchy yet intricate and not meaningless. the One the Only Dungeon Family.

Presenting Dungeon Family- pretty nice intro to begin with.....beat isnt great neither are the rhymers. 4
2.Crooked Booty- Now this is a dirty South beat! Definite to get the party jumping or started. very hype. 5
3. Follow The light- Cee-Lo sets it off on this one with his nicely done chorus and Big Boi puts the icing on the cake. Very Mellow beat; the tamest song on the album. 5
4. Trans DF Express- The single, with the most bumpable beat of the whole album. Dre and Big Boi rip it, Cee-Lo does a great job. A Classic. 5 easily
5. On&On&On- OMG this album keeps getting better and better. Another party starter with a very unique head nodder beat. Big Boi kills it with his verse. 5
6. Emergency- not much on the First listen but this one does grow on you. The beat is very fast and urgent sounding; hence the name. good song 4
7. Forever Pimpin- Nice beat and Cool Breeze drops an aight verse. overall too short and not enough rippage of the microphone. 3.5
8. 6 Minutes- A classic song. Many of the lesser known members of the click get some shine here such as Witchdoctor, Big Rube, and Backbone. The beat is infectious and is just right for chilling. Tight Chorus. 5
9. White Gutz- This is some country fried rap right here. The beat is definitely southern and is again a head nodder. It features Bubba Sparxxx and blends right in with Big Boi and Big Gipp. 5
10. Rollin- Nice change of pace. a slower R&B type of song but ghettoer. Slow riding song. 4
11. They Comin- A nice chant with a great beat. T-Mo rips it to shreds. song about haters. 4
12. Excalibur- Production is live on this one and creates a nice landscape for the rappers and it continues the greatness shown on this album. Chorus is very soulful and moving. The beat gets more intense as it goes on. A Classic. 5
13. What Is Rap- A tight a$$ tune right here. A night Track. Ray rips up his verse. 4
14. Curtains- A moving beat and has some nice sound effects in it. Tight Chorus nice flows, great lyrics. 4.5
Overall this is definitely one of the top 5 cds to come out this year. It is easily the best album by a group this year. The Dungeon Family continues to push the envelope and show that they have the game on lock. Constantly innovating and original. The Dungeon Family earns the right for me to call this a classic debut album. A Must have for the year 2001. Easily 5 stars!
Rollin' is the best track of the year. Cee-Lo don't mess around on this CD.
The aforementioned Cee-Lo features very prominently on this album while Dre3000 generally takes a backseat, although the unique Outkast MC does choose his contributions well in "Crooked Booty" and "Trans Df Express", arguably the two strongest joints on the LP. Both tracks are very addictive and bring the old school funk influences we have come to expect.
Another highlight are the 80s synth sounds of "Follow The Light", while "Excalibur" with it's rousing chorus proves good closure towards the end of the album. "6 Minutes" utilises elements from old school classic "The Show" but also creates a worthy head nodder in itself.
Those are some of my favourite moments although truth told there's not a weak track. The production is exemplorary as you'd expect from Oraginized Noize.
Anyone switched on to the refreshing twist The Dungeon Family in their numerous guises have brought into hip-hop will no doubt run not walk to get this, their first group album, and quite right too, it's superb.
Don't get me wrong, it's hot. It's really hot! Maybe I expected too much.
So, if you're like me, and you've been an Outkast fan since they released the original version of "Players' Ball" (The one on the La Face Christmas Album), and you think this is going to be the best collection of Atlanta/Dirty South hip-hop ever...check yourself. But if you're just looking for something that'll have you ridin' out, then this is the one. Definitely worth the cash. Easily one of the best CD's I've heard in a long while.
Surprise guest appearances from Mello of P.A. and Bubba Sparxxx set this disk off just right.
So, don't get your hopes too high, but don't miss it either.
Beware, don't listen to "On & On & On" while driving. It'll have you so live, you'll be pushin' 120 MPH before you realize it.
Troy's picks: On & On & On, Emergency, White Gutz, and Curtains
