I say this as I've been told most of the music isn't in the movie.

Wow, though. This is actually really enjoyable.

I was not a big fan of Speakerboxx/Love Below. I thought Big Boi's disc was mediocre, although it had some classics like "Church", and "The Way You Move", and I didn't understand the love for The Love Below--but you've seen my opinions on that album already.

By making this a single, and not a double disc, they cut out a lot of their propensity for filler. Surprisingly Andre rhymes again...a little, not a lot.

The Andre-sung tunes are actually quite good, much more enjoyable and better written than the half-assed Love Below album. Especially "PJ and Rooster". Big Boi's rhyming has improved here, and the production is markably improved.

Hard for me to say much about it other than, I really enjoy it!
