Good... but not quite Speakerboxxx,
This review is from: Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty (Audio CD)
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.
