Product Description

Dungeon Family ~ Even In Darkness

Amazon.co.uk

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

Should you buy this album? I think you probably should.
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.
Have it.

Dungeon Families 1st album is a hip hop classic. With members including outkast,goodie mobb,cool breeze,slimm calhourn and backbone there is plenty of experience and talent. After Outkasts "stankonia"(there worst album) this was one album i was hopeing would raise outkast to there previous status ("Aquemini"). High-lights of the album include "six minutes", "crooked booty" and "follow the light". And overall their rhymes r perfect and the excellent production (provided by Organised Noise and earthtone 3) all add to this amazing hip hop album. any hip hop fan should own this album, so go buy it!!!!!
And it does say on another review that Ludacris is in the group, but he isnt even remotly involved with the dungeon family!!

I cannot tell the difference between when it is a song from one of Outkast's Album or if it is from the DF Album.That is not a criticsm because i love everything on all of Outkasts albums its just that, especially Stankonia and Speakerboxx, Killer Mike Slimm Calhoun, Goodie Mob Sleepy Brown and Raekwon appear so often that there is very little difference. Each song's outro is accompanied by the same "Right!" that goes right through the Stankonia Album.
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.

Well here it is, an amazing 5 Star album, but of course it would be. When you combine big names such as Outkasts, Goodie Mob and Ludacris into one group then of course you going to come out with an amazing album, since all of them have truly orignal and impressive solo albums as well as totally different styles. Goodie mob add a light hearted bouncy touch and I think that Big Gipp has the most amazing voice ever, deep but fast and bouncy, then Cee-Lo with high paced vocal style brings in cool entrances such as in Trans Df Express. Then with those speed pumping rappers Outkasts backing them up it all goes together very well, but then Ludacris comes in coming out with his usual 'girls girls girls' relatd topics it's guarenteed to bring a smile to your face. This is totally different to most rap groups who are all about gangsters, these guys are about parties, having fun, and staying true to the music and if you want some happy party beats, this is where to go. Its got songs for everyone with powerful vocals and beats so hot its like pouring lava in your ears, a definate MUST HAVE for a true rap fan, so after reading this your one click away from having at least 6 months of wearing down your cd player with rapping delight, buy this NOW!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Worthwhile Review....... 27 Dec. 2001
By Enlightened - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Dungeon Family, the Super-Group which includes Outkast and Goodie MoB, has finally released their long due debut album. Headed by producers Earthtone3 and Organized Noize, they manage to drop a classic album in my opinion. The beats are some of the most original ever even surpassing the beats that appeared on Stankonia. The head nod factor only increases as you near the end of the cd. Rhymers are potent on this release but I have to really give Big Boi his props. He has perfected his flow and lyrics and it is witnessed on every song he appears on as he outshines everyone. Lemme break it down for ya song by song.
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Real music 24 Dec. 2004
By Sonnie R. Strong - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
True music. Rap music. For once, that phrase is not an oxymoron. One of the most original CD I've ever heard. But it does not sound like they are trying to be different. They just are. I lost this CD, and I went and bought it again. That's how good it is. This CD is ahead of its time. That's good, that's makes for decades of listening.

Rollin' is the best track of the year. Cee-Lo don't mess around on this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let There Be Light 29 Mar. 2005
By Carltouis Stevenson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In the event of an "Emergency" the Dungeon Family is here to save you from the repititious sound and concepts that exist in rap/hip-hop. Outkast, Goodie Mob, Society of Soul, Witchdoctor, Cool Breeze and Backbone got together to create a fusion of futuristic sounds and lyrics to calm the average hip-hop/rap lover. Even In Darkness belongs mostly to Big Boi of Outkast and Big Gipp of Goodie Mob. Production was held down by Organized Noize and Earthtone III. "...Oooh, call the police / I will verbally murder one of these sucker mc's..." said by member Backbone on "Emergency" which features Mello of P.A. (or 66 Mello if you know your history). "On & On & On" is has a Miami sound with foreign chords to add to the uptempo composition. "White Gutz" is also a standout which starts off with the pimping flow of Big Boi, following Bubba Sparkxx and is taken over with the non-rhyme of Big Gipp. "Sitting on four hundred wires that's what they love / incence swinging from the mirror that's what they love / six coats lick with the glaze that's what they love / driving with the dealership tag that's what they love / harrigbone straight on my shoulder that's what they love / the smell of new leather in the cold that's what they love / straw hats, v-neck tees that's what they love / moonroof open blowing smoke that's what they love / Romeo cologne every week that's what they love / that's what they love / that's what they love..." By the time you get to "Excalibur" the DF will have you in awe with this mideval with organs and 808 kick to win you over. "...360 degrees / of emcees / making these rap niggas sound like they're swinging from trees..."

5.0 out of 5 stars A highlight of 2001... 24 Jun. 2002
By MarcusD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Dungeon Family really produced the goods here and it more than filled the space for new product from the Atlanta collective til Cee-Lo dropped his solo joint. The Outkast Hits collection was never going to cut it for hardcore fans who had every 'Kast longplayer anyway...
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but didn't live up to expectations 28 Nov. 2001
By Troy Powers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I definitely expected better. I mean, if you start with Organized Noize production, add Outkast, Goodie Mob, Cool Breeze, Witch Doctor, Backbone and the various other members of the Dungeon Family, well...it's easy to expect the best album of the century. This is not it.
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
