Speakerboxxx/The Love Below Outkast

£2.99

Product description

At a time when experimentation is taboo in most overground rap, that's all Outkast seem intent on executing. Firstly, the double CD Speakerboxxx/The Love Below has no cohesive link, other than the fact that it sounds like a pair of solo albums stitched together to demonstrate exactly how Andre's yin works to augment Big Boi's yang. Andre 3000's The Love Below disc rates as the more eclectic of the two, given that, on it, he's turned in his emcee credentials to become a full-on funk-soul-jazz vocalist who mostly sings about items of love ("Happy Valentine's Day"), carnal lust ("Spread") and female adoration ("Prototype"). Minus the big band schmaltz of "Love Hater" and cheesy cover jobs ("My Favorite Things"), Andre's disc is great.

As is to be expected, the Big Boi disc is less arty, more gangsta and worldly, and features the less-progressive guest raps of ATL crunk purveyors Lil' Jon and the Eastside Boyz ("Last Call") and Jay-Z, who rhymes the hook on "Flip Flop Rock". Unlike Big Boi, Andre keeps his collaborations to a minimum, once crooning alongside Norah Jones on the cool yet sappy "Take Off Your Cool", and once with Kelis. Boi fulfils his Dungeon Family duty with flying colours by flipping some dirty southern up-tempo raps over electro beats on "GhettoMusick". By the time Cee-Lo sermonises on "Reset", Speakerboxx and Love Below rate mostly as majestic and inspiring, with the remaining 23 per cent being just plain incredible.
