Product Description

Stars of the HBO film Idlewild, Andre Benjamin and Antwan Patton--the dynamic, multi-platinum, Grammy-winning duo who comprise the group Outkast--have unleashed another album that is bound to revolutionize mainstream music. Their colorful songs, "Mighty O", "Morris Brown", and "Idlewild Blue" will have you listening and dancing for hours.

Despite its title title, this is not a soundtrack for the Idlewild movie--almost no songs appear in the film. Instead, the tunes seem inspired by Idlewild's narrative themes. Outkast extends the eccentric streak that began on Stankonia and continued through The Love Below/Speakerboxxx. Fans of that last album may enjoy Idlewild's continued eclecticism, especially from Andre 3000, who seems to be moving further away from "rap" every moment toward some bizarre love child of Prince and Melvin Van Peebles. A song like "Mighty O," which actually features both Outkast members rhyming, is a refreshing throwback to the duo's earlier days, but Idlewild is mostly divided between songs from Andre and Big Boi, with few points of intersection. By far the strangest Outkast album they've ever released--and this is saying a lot--Idlewild is a heady, dizzying trip. Awkwardly disjointed at times, it undeniably certifies the group as one of the most adventurous that hip-hop has ever seen. It's not easy to love but it's hard not to respect. --Oliver Wang

The movie of "Idlewild" itself had over 25 songs in it. So I didn't expect the soundtrack to have all the songs from the movie. But the weird thing is that there are actually 25 tracks on the CD, but only 7 of the songs are from the film! The soundtrack is still well worth the purchase. Listed below are the consistencies and the missing songs from the film.

The only tracks that are included on the CD
which are also in the movie are:

1. Morris Brown (Big Boi, with Sleepy Brown & Scar)
2. Chronomentrophobia (Outkast)
3. Makes No Sense (Outkast)
4. PJ & Rooster (Outkast)
5. Mutron Angel (Whild Peach)
6. Greatest Show on Earth (Macy Gray and Outkast)
7. When I Look in Your Eyes (Outkast)

The following songs are from the film, but are not included on this soundtrack and are available on other albums (as indicated).

Wow did this album get panned in a hurry. I almost feel like I'm listening to something different from all these other negative and mediocre-reviewers. It's untraditional and it's funky. 3000 doesn't sound forced - like some of the "different for difference's sake" which oozed thorugh so many of the Love Below tracks. Idlewild flows, it's complete, it's a cohesive story, it's well produced, and Big Boi is smooth and deep as ever. Put down that hatorade and pick up the love.

Followers of Outkast know that Big Boi and Andre 3000 always push the envelope of what people expect of them, and Idlewild is no different. It's a dizzying, hypnotic and wild ride, taking listeners far outside the boundaries of what might be called traditional hip-hop. If anything, this is what makes Outkast so great. They can hardly be called a traditional hip-hop group as they consisently take their music to places no one in the industry has gone before.

If you're looking for more of the same, you may not like Idlewild. Most of the Outkast faithful already know better than to look for more of the same from one of the most eclectic, surprising music groups in the last twenty years.

Some tracks have the distinct "Outkast" flavor that makes them so popular: take 'Mighty O' or 'Morris Brown' but on the other hand, take a single like 'Idlewild Blue' which features both guitar and a little harmonica or the deep, soulful piano on 'A Bad Note'... how many hip hop songs do you know feature any of those instruments? Not many.

Rather than sell out and give us remixes of the same single or melody or rhyme or style over and over, Outkast makes enjoyable, original MUSIC. If only more hip-hop and rock and pop artists would do the same.

Being a longtime fan who first fell in love with Outkast when I saw the video for "Player's Ball" back in late 1993, I've always supported them because they've never compromised their artistic integrity, or ascribed to the formula of the day to expand their appeal. Instead, they've set the trend and let the people warm up to them. That's a rare feat in the music industry and that's why I don't buy all this "real Outkast fan vs. new Outkast fan" stuff. I have all of their albums (along with numerous non-album cuts that they've done) and as far as I'm concerned, all of their albums are exceptional. If you listen to music expecting some strict adherence to type or image, you end up listening to a lot of mediocre music that fits the mold, and missing out on a lot of great music that doesn't. It doesn't require any thought or ingenuity to go into a studio and copy a formula, jump on a bandwagon, or follow some popular trend. That's why hip-hop was so great between '87 and '94 for example, there was no formula for selling records so everybody was trying whatever they felt inspired to do. There were no "Super Producers", just groups of people in studios and basements all over the country with heads full of ideas. That's what produces great music, not following some strict adherence to type or image. Like most good albums that I've heard (especially those bursting at the seams with creativity the way that the average Outkast album is), "Idlewild" took a couple of listens to sink in. The music here is quite diverse (everything from psychedelic funk/rock to big band jazz, to a brassy college marching band number) and most of it works really well. To be completely fair, the album could have stood to be trimmed just a little.Read more ›
