BBC Review

Frequently written off in favour of flamboyant other-half André '3000' Benjamin, it's high time people started singing the praises of Big Boi. As 50% of Atlanta, GA crew OutKast, the man christened Antwan André Patton played a pivotal role in bringing the hard-bitten soul of the dirty south to prominence during the late 1990s in the US.

And while fourth LP Stankonia made bona fide pop stars of the duo, it was 2003's Speakerboxxx/The Love Below–a double album showcasing the work of either artist on separate discs–which spawned an era-defining single in Hey Ya! and established Benjamin as a rakishly-dressed, latter-day Prince figure for the hip hop generation.

Unfortunately The Love Below was less focused than the comparison would suggest, and in fact it was Patton's Speakerboxxx which lent ballast to Dré's whimsical, intermittently inspired flights of fancy, turning in the kind of colourful hip hop productions that helped make OutKast's name in the first place.

Patton floated the idea of a solo record in 2007, but following issues with OutKast label LaFace/Jive he switched to Def Jam last year. Even worse, Jive decreed that tracks featuring vocals from Patton's erstwhile sparring partner be left on the cutting room floor, meaning 'net-leaked numbers Royal Flush and Looking 4 Ya are absent from Sir Lucious Left Foot. That's a real shame–both Big Boi and Dré kill it on the former, while the latter could almost be a laser-focused Kanye joint minus the woe-is-me ass-clowning.

Nonetheless Sir Lucious Left Foot is a potent reminder of one of the more consistently inventive forces in rap 16 years since his debut. Given Patton's rep as the conservative half of OutKast it's easy to forget how damn musical his ideas are, like the mellow Rhodes piano that underscores Turns Me On's supple west coast funk, or the horns that add cinematic gloss to the The Train Part 2's outro.

Shutterbugg's ice-cold electro is given a spacious, club-ready sheen by Scott Storch that'll have the track bouncing 'round your brain for months to come, while George Clinton even shows up on the Kraftwerk-gone-ringtone rap hokum of Fo Yo Sorrows. André 3000's sole credit is as producer on the un-Dre-like You Ain't No DJ, which has the coked-out, machine-funk feel of a Clipse track.

Meanwhile the heavyweight General Patton and heady, AOR-tinged Shine Blockas only confirm Patton as one of the best pop-leaning hip hop artists around. That OutKast comeback will surely be killer, but for now respect is due the way of this splendid solo adventure.

This album has been much hyped, and much awaited, and I was so excited when I finally got hold of it. I am a big Outkast fan, and I felt that the split album 'Speakerbox/ The Love Below' showed that Big Boi had huge potential for a solo record. Finally it is here!

Overall, I think the album is an excellent start. It's got Big Boi written all over it - very funky, with a smooth feel and an easy-going yet also assertive style of lyrical delivery. Big Boi isn't quite as experimental with his sound as Andre 3000, but he is still innovative, and the beats on this album will testitfy to that, as they are quite varied.

Lyrically, I felt that the album flitted between the sharp and observant and the more mundane. There's some great wordplay and humorous non-sequitors, but there are also bits that are less lyrically impressive. There's a fair dose of boastful bravado and lady-loving, but Big Boi doesn't let it doesn't drop too much into the gutter, unlike so many rappers today. His violence is mostly in the context of what he will do if you try and put him down, rather than boasting about fighting and killing every day. However, I will admit that I was a little disappointed that quite a few of the lyrics are dedicated to boasting, talking about how great it is that he is back and so on.

Having said that, his delivery throughout the album is superb. His rhymes are incredibly dexterous, and unlike some other rappers he never sounds strained, even when rapping extremely fast. His voice has rich, rounded sound which gives him a big vocal presence.

I think it's a shame that Andre 3000 couldn't appear on any of the tracks (apart from producing 'You ain't no DJ'). I heard that record label blocked any vocal appearance, though that may not be true.

From a long time fan of Outkast and Dungeon Family. After Big Boi's half of Speakerboxx I expected him to really excel and display his talents here. But he's taken a half step backwards. Sir Lucious is not a bad album, but there's no stand out tracks and it all sounds luke the more mediocre of his previous efforts.
I know Andre is the one known for pushing boundaries, but it was always Boi that was leading the way with real hip hop. He's just had a minor slip here.

The album is great with of 5 excellent tracks that really stand out from the rest. While not quite on the level of Stankonia it's a very very close second and well worth a listen if you liked any of Outkast's previous releases.

With most great albums, it usually takes several listens before its quality becomes clear. However after one spin the quality reveals itself from the get go. More importantly, you know that the album is going to get better with each and every listen. And it does...

The first half of the album consists of the more upbeat funky numbers, while the second half takes a more down-tempo route. The production is top-notch and there is just so much going on with layers upon layers of brilliant and wonderful sound. The music is simply superb!

I always (unfairly) thought Andre was the more talented half of Outkast. This album emphatically demonstrates just how wrong you can be. I would go as far to say that this up there with Prince at his most creative peak. If you like good music, not necessarily quality hip-hop, then this album is up there with one of the better albums you will hear this year. Well worth investing the time and money to get to know it.

Missed this when it came out. This is a spectacularly good album - you go through the entire thing, thinking surely he's gonna run out of steam at some point, but no. Then finally you come to Back Up Plan, which is just about as good as hip-hop gets in my opinion. Chuck whatever superlatives you like at it, they won't come close to doing it justice.

I'm the kind of person who found Speakerboxxx the far better album of the double classic Speakerboxxx/The Love Below. As I heard Idlewild it almost seemed like Andre 3000 was in the way of great rap with his wandering off too far into other genres. Having said that it is obvious that I was excited about Big Boi's solo.

This is a good album. Even very good compared to the regular run-of-the-mill rap album. It's just that Big Boi will have his albums compared to Speakerboxxx as well. And this isn't as good. The great innovativeness is still there. The tunes have as much variety as a medium size record label. A few of the tracks are extremely catchy including "Turns Me On" and "Shutterbug". The album opens very strong. If the quality of the first 4 tracks (intro excluded) could have been kept up throughout the album, you would feel bad that that 6th star doesn't exist. After that the feel that you can't skip a track is no longer there.

I recommed you buy this album. But if you don't yet own Speakerboxxx buy that one first.

I don't really like writing long reviews, so all I'll say is this: I really liked "Daddy Fat Sax", "Turns Me On", "Shuttebugg" and "Fo Yo Sorrows", the rest of the tracks are either good or really great, so this album is definitely worth a purchase.
Unfortunately, Andre 3000 does not appear on this album due to label politics, which kind of sucks, but the album's still great.
