Forget "miss jackson" look no further than "toilet tisha", a song that reaks of classic prince and "stankonia" the title track to realise this is no ordinary hip hop group. Outkast are by far the best thing to happen to rap in years, freaky lyrics and super cool beats make this one on the best albums i have ever heard!!

Outkast once again turn their back on the route to easy money. The teaming of the player (Big Boi) and the more cerebral Andre 3000 create one of the most effective tag-teams in hip-hop today. Carving a niche in these days of ca$h money materialism isn't that easy but Outkast maintain their march to maturity and musical creativity.
Drawing on a plethora of musical influences, this largely self-produced album shows that hip-hop is far from being stifled by the demand of the money men for whatever derivative is most popular at the time. Listening to the album end-to-end takes you on a journey from funk, drum and bass, soul, gospel all of which combine to form the "stanky" sound that they've created for themselves. An easy criticism would be to suggest that they've over-extended themselves, tracks like "Gangsta Shit" sit uneasily alongside songs like "Slum Beautiful" a bass-driven sweet ride to the heated south. However, given the trend for crews to put on their less than shining stars it's only to be expected. Topics such as "Ms Jackson" show an apologetic pair of emcees explaining that they never wanted to hurt their ex-loves, a nice touch of reality and humility when compared with "We Luv Deez Hoez"
One thing you get from 'kast is value for money, all of their albums have stretched long past the fifty minute mark and although I rate this as their third best album (ATLiens and Aquemini are fantastic chunks of hip-hop) it is brave, though contradictory (Big Boi's pimping influence certainly isn't pc). For people who are tired of the present hip-pop and those who disbelieve that hip-hop can be creative I suggest a listen to this.

Hip hop is monotonous? Bored of todays bling blinging? WEll this is the album for you! Bypassing the genius of former albums; outkast has excelled themselves with this blend of hip hip hop and rhyme. Dre, with his poetry and original style, along with big boi blend hard hitting master pieces, such as bombs over baghdad, with smooth rap ballads such as ms. jackson and humble mumble. From the streets of Atlanta this successful duo portray what rap from the south is all about with this huge which will surely bring outkast from relative unknowns to superstars. They have done what nwa and public enemy did for rap in the late 80's; outkast reinvent themselves with every song creating a new genre of hip hop with each album. Stankonia is their best album to date and the best hip hop album this year!!!

Outkast deserve many medals for this CD. Toilet Tisha is chilled out electric Rn'B at its best, while the epic B.O.B energises even the most lethargic slobs. A quirky, zesty CD which is definitely a must.

I love the hip-hop scene, but there are times when I wish for something that breaks away from the clichés and also sounds cool. 'Stankonia' is one of those albums. It is upbeat, fresh, exciting and consistent, which quite remarkable for a album with over 20 tracks. A lot of people will know the huge hit, 'Ms Jackson', but there are plenty more classics to be found. 'B.O.B.' is a stunning combination of hip-hop with drum 'n' bass beats, 'So fresh, so clean' is smooth and seductive, 'Gasoline dreams' is a heavy hip-hop anthem and 'Gangsta.....' and 'x-plosion' are a couple more addictive tracks which really creep up on you after a couple of listens. The beauty of this album is that you are never quite sure what the next track will be like, yet the songs possess so much style and charm, that you find yourself loving every track regardless. This is hip-hop at it's most innovative and creative.

the only way this can't 5 stars is if you only compare it with other Outkast albums. It may not be the best Outkast but its still 5/5 relative to all other music.

Stankonia. This is Outkast's fourth album, where have they been? Why are they now suddenly respected in Britain, alongside Dre and Snoop. Stankonia is why. This album has projected them fully into Britain's hip-hop arena, excellent tracks like 'Ms Jackson' have shown they can compete in our charts. 'B.O.B' highlights the fast fuelled aggression on this album and partnerships with B-Real and the gifted Erykah Badu compliment this album even further. Outkast present a rollercoaster of a hip hop album, combined with soulful lyrics and outstanding cameos. The music is fresh, different to that of Dre and Eminem (all we seem to get in Britain), and entertaining. Listening closely to the tracks can have you in stitches of laughter or moments of contemplation. This album is above all a pleasure to listen to. Thank you Outkast for giving us more hip hop to hear on our radios.

How do you start to describe an album like this? Unconventional and left-field are a couple of words I'd use. But when talking about music those two words generally refer to an album that is interesting but unlistenable. Outkast have thrown this idea on its head a produced a pumpin', rockin', explosive album that is ulitmately great hip-hop but so much more besides. Truely inspirational. The best hip hop album of 2000...

I think that the outkast album stankonia ia an asset to any hip-hop fans c.d collection. If you have one of the other albums, I can tell you that it is just as good if not better. I also found that the cheapest I could find it was right here on Amazon.
