I've been with Outkast since Southernplayalistic... in that time we've born witness to a real evolution of their sound into two of the most experimental artists within Hiphop, whilst still retaining the knack of making good music. I had some reservations about this album before I'd actually heard it. Would the '30s vibe be too much? Would this be a step too far? Answer: Nope! Although they've taxed the vibes of various 1930s musical styles and infused it with their own unique Atlien brand of Hiphop, you need not worry. This is very much a follow-up to Speakerboxx/Love Below, indeed, "PJ & Rooster" sounds every inch this albums "Hey Ya", and with other tasty tunes such as the fun "Minnie the Moocher" tinted straight up Hiphop of "Big O", and the more mellow and melodic "Train" and "In Your Dreams" you best believe that Outkast are still all that and a bag o' chips. Wicked.
