I liked Stankonia...that album really tossed them out there and they got really big off it.

I thought Speakerboxx was ok, songs like "Church" were good, but it suffered from not having both of them rapping. The Love Below=Andre 3000 thinking he's a gifted songwriter, but he's....not.

I wasn't big on the production on that album. I thought that the typically identifiable Outkast production with the southern goodness went out the window when they changed who they used for production on that album.

That said, it's a good album--Gasoline Dreams rules.

but, he is...

andre is this generations sly stone/prince - there's nothing on that record that suggest he isn't either - whether you personally like the music or not, spread, protype, etc. are very well written - great harmonies, great arrangements, great transitions, great breaks... the musical foundation of everything that makes a great song great - my personal fave though is atliens

and i agree that once Earthtone III started doing most of the production instead of organized noise, outkast didnt really sound the same..but BOB hits hard as hell

still got to write 'em though - again, like the guy and his music or not, there is no denying andre's songwriting abilities...

It's not the style that puts me off, I like that genre. I just don't like HIS songwriting. I don't find his melodies particularly engaging, especially on annoying songs like "Roses", or the trite funk of "Valentine's Day". There are good songs on the album, but a lot of filler, in my opinion, songs that meander but don't go anywhere. There was one song on that album, I forgot the title, that was more of a crooner's piece, and Andre's weak singing voice didn't help it out at all.

I don't doubt Andre's passionate about what he does, but I think he was gifted as a rapper, I don't think this is his forte at all.

Prince > Andre 3000 by a million. I don't own 9 Prince cds for my health! :)

amen to that - and speaking of prince - it's amazing how many good songs this guy has written that the average person wouldn't know - but then that pretty much goes with every great songwriter - greatest hit cds need to be outlawed - for example, lovesexy is a musical masterpiece but i bet if we polled the lounge, we might find a handful of owners at best...

I own it.

I've never been more embarassed bringing a cd to the register, due to the cover.

I like Glam Slam a lot from that album. When 2 R in Love is pretty awesome too.

I really loved the album Around the World in a Day too. and of course 1999 and Purple Rain....I wasn't really into the New Power Generation stuff as much though, I didn't like Gold. I really liked his Revolution stuff, and his pre-Revolution stuff like his s/t or Dirty Mind.

i like i wish you heaven off lovesexy, around the world is underrated - not surprised though - how could he possibly follow-up purple rain? the ladder is a musical masterpiece - i had front row center tix for the new power generation tour in miami, so that cd holds a nice place for me - my ex-girl used to freak over the continental and i used to let her... :dday:
