Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Big Boi and Andre 3000 make a monumental mothership connection on their utterly stupefying fourth album. At a time when the hip-hop "album" seems to be sadly declining in significance, Atlanta's finest deliver a classic package of space-case imagery, curbside poetry, and delicious experimental funk. While the boys still celebrate their big pimpin' lifestyles, "Gasoline Dreams" and the breathtaking "Humble Mumble" overflow with striking images of dashed American dreams and urban frustration. Stankonia's most beautiful moments come in the name of love, whether it's a celebration of the current ("Stanklove") or a lamentation of the past ("Ms. Jackson"). The love movement is manifested on the album's revolutionary production, combining the oozing, organic licks of P-Funk, the fearless, sexual audacity of Prince, some down-home Southern crunk, and even a little drum & bass ("B.O.B."). While Stankonia certainly isn't an "easy" album, its ambition and vision easily rank it among hip-hop's greatest in some time. --Hua Hsu

5.0 out of 5 stars A Hip-Hop Masterpiece, plain and simple. December 16, 2000
Format:Audio CD
While most of the hip-hop coming out nowadays is filled with the same commercialized BS, Outkast continues to step their level up to new heights. Stankonia is a masterpiece, as was Aquemini, as was ATLiens, and as was their debut Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik. Not since A Tribe Called Quest came into the game have we seen a group drop more than 2 straight classics...Tribe managed 3 straight, but Outkast has just completed their fourth.
The first two singles, B.O.B. and Ms. Jackson, are both extremely tight tracks, as is just about every track on here. So Fresh, So Clean, I'll Call Before I Come, Humble Mumble, Slum Beautiful. And Gasoline Dreams is so chilling that after one listen, you really will smell gasoline in the air. The list goes on and on.
The standout though, if you could pick just one, has to be Red Velvet. The mesmerizing psychadelic beat fits perfectly with Dre & Big Boi's flows.
Overall, this is an album you won't just bump this year and forget about. It's an album you'll bump forever ever....forever ever?....yes, FOREVER.

5.0 out of 5 stars OutKast keeps on doing it (4.5 stars) July 15, 2002
Format:Audio CD
With three albums behind them OutKast has presented the listener with a different sound each go round. It is no different this time as Andre and Big Boi bring the hip-hop culture something new. The album starts off with the fast and high-pitched production on "Gasoline" and transitions nicely into the super smooth "So Fresh, So Clean". "Ms. Jackson" is the most well-known song from the album as it is a great song that will appeal to hardcore OutKast fans and first time listeners. "Snappin' & Trappin'" uses a dark, off-beat production to create a song that will dispel any thoughts anyone had of this album being more mainstream after "Ms. Jackson". "Spaghetti Junction" uses great instrumentation and has a very "Aquemini" vibe to it. "B.O.B." features the head spinning beat that makes for one of the most interesting and best songs on the album. "Xplosion" features a great verse by Cypress Hill's B-Real and he takes a nice shot at rap magazine XXL. "Humble Mumble" shows OutKast's diversity as they mix their great rapping ability with Erykah Badu's wonderful singing. "Red Velvet" is really nice song over a great beat. Very good storytelling from Andre and Big Boi. "Slum Beautiful" is OutKast at their "outcast" best with an extremely nice rapping/singing song. "Stankonia" is one of the funkiest and wildest songs OutKast has made, but past OutKast fans can appreciate this OutKast style love song.
The only real problem with this album is the excessive amount of skits. There are no real need for them and it would have made the album a strong 17 tracks instead of a lengthy 24. Another small complaint is that it does not have a distinctive identity like their past albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars i stank i can i stan i can! November 1, 2000
By Rick
Format:Audio CD
Oh yeah them ATL boys are back in town and they are bringing with them their best album to date. That is saying something since their last 3 CD's are modern classics, well add another classic to the mix. Right away the first time i heard STANKONIA i was blown away, so many great beats and not only that..Great Music. The lyrics are their usual OutKast quality so it made for a very entertaining listen to. My favorites tracks are too many list, there isnt a bad song on the whole album....but Ms. Jackson and Humble Mumble really struck a cord with me. Go get this album even if you are not a hip hop fan..Outkkast trenscends all music..they are no stereotypic rappers like jay-z or puff daddy....outkast is the real thang!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm sorry, Ms. Jackson. I AM FOR REEEEAL! November 3, 2000
Format:Audio CD
After 3 slammin' CDs, Outkast can no longer announce a release date and just come out with a CD, they have to meet or even exceed all of their fans' expectations from their previous work. "Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik" brought a new light to the hip hop world. There was the east coast and west coast and even a South, but few new about the Dirty South and ATL. Outkast did a good job of bringing that out in the open and impressed many hip hop fans with their debut CD. "Player's Ball", the title track, and "Git Up, Git Out" w/The Goodie Mob were the singles and their CD overall got a lot of attention in the hip hop world. Then with "ATLiens" and "Aquemini", Outkast only solidified what they have done and what they mean to hip hop. Few groups dare to try new things. They are scared because they may lose their fan base if they don't stick to the same old formula as before. Outkast defies that by always coming up with new and innovative ideas to make their music and hip hop better overall. Their 4th CD, "Stankonia" puts Outkast on the map even further. The first two singles on "Stankonia", "B.O.B" and "Ms. Jackson" are two totally different songs but they capture the attention of their fans as they always do. "Ms. Jackson" goes into depth on the subject of baby mother's mothers and sheds some light in general on the topic. "Ms. Jackson" is one of the best songs on their new CD. Read more ›
