When asked to name a current crew that conceptualizes to the standard set by Public Enemy and their crack production team, the Bomb Squad, hip-hop historian Harry Allen didn't hesitate before saying, "The Dungeon Family. I think those guys are scientists." That's an observant description of the Atlanta-based collective, featuring Goodie Mob, Outkast, and Society of Soul alongside the production teams Organized Noize and Earth Tone 3. Even in Darkness displays the ensemble's ability to isolate various elemental aspects of hip-hop and recombine them into fresh-sounding, organically pure compositions. Breaking it down, you'll find you're on Planet Rock: a strong portion of Funkadelic mixed in with second-generation bass culture, turntablism, and sweet soul harmonies (courtesy of Cee-Lo and the amazing Sleepy Brown). But don't get nervous--conceptualization does not mean intellectualization. These are straight-up hip-hop party tunes, floss rhymes and all. As the Dungeon Family themselves advise, "Follow the lights, they lead to something." Something exceptional. --Rebecca Levine

Dungeon Family, the Super-Group which includes Outkast and Goodie MoB, has finally released their long due debut album. Headed by producers Earthtone3 and Organized Noize, they manage to drop a classic album in my opinion. The beats are some of the most original ever even surpassing the beats that appeared on Stankonia. The head nod factor only increases as you near the end of the cd. Rhymers are potent on this release but I have to really give Big Boi his props. He has perfected his flow and lyrics and it is witnessed on every song he appears on as he outshines everyone. Lemme break it down for ya song by song.
Presenting Dungeon Family- pretty nice intro to begin with.....beat isnt great neither are the rhymers. 4
2.Crooked Booty- Now this is a dirty South beat! Definite to get the party jumping or started. very hype. 5
3. Follow The light- Cee-Lo sets it off on this one with his nicely done chorus and Big Boi puts the icing on the cake. Very Mellow beat; the tamest song on the album. 5
4. Trans DF Express- The single, with the most bumpable beat of the whole album. Dre and Big Boi rip it, Cee-Lo does a great job. A Classic. 5 easily
5. On&On&On- OMG this album keeps getting better and better. Another party starter with a very unique head nodder beat. Big Boi kills it with his verse. 5
6. Emergency- not much on the First listen but this one does grow on you. The beat is very fast and urgent sounding; hence the name. good song 4
7. Forever Pimpin- Nice beat and Cool Breeze drops an aight verse. overall too short and not enough rippage of the microphone. 3.5
8. 6 Minutes- A classic song. Many of the lesser known members of the click get some shine here such as Witchdoctor, Big Rube, and Backbone.

True music. Rap music. For once, that phrase is not an oxymoron. One of the most original CD I've ever heard. But it does not sound like they are trying to be different. They just are. I lost this CD, and I went and bought it again. That's how good it is. This CD is ahead of its time. That's good, that's makes for decades of listening.

Rollin' is the best track of the year. Cee-Lo don't mess around on this CD.

In the event of an "Emergency" the Dungeon Family is here to save you from the repititious sound and concepts that exist in rap/hip-hop. Outkast, Goodie Mob, Society of Soul, Witchdoctor, Cool Breeze and Backbone got together to create a fusion of futuristic sounds and lyrics to calm the average hip-hop/rap lover. Even In Darkness belongs mostly to Big Boi of Outkast and Big Gipp of Goodie Mob. Production was held down by Organized Noize and Earthtone III. "...Oooh, call the police / I will verbally murder one of these sucker mc's..." said by member Backbone on "Emergency" which features Mello of P.A. (or 66 Mello if you know your history). "On & On & On" is has a Miami sound with foreign chords to add to the uptempo composition. "White Gutz" is also a standout which starts off with the pimping flow of Big Boi, following Bubba Sparkxx and is taken over with the non-rhyme of Big Gipp. "Sitting on four hundred wires that's what they love / incence swinging from the mirror that's what they love / six coats lick with the glaze that's what they love / driving with the dealership tag that's what they love / harrigbone straight on my shoulder that's what they love / the smell of new leather in the cold that's what they love / straw hats, v-neck tees that's what they love / moonroof open blowing smoke that's what they love / Romeo cologne every week that's what they love / that's what they love / that's what they love..." By the time you get to "Excalibur" the DF will have you in awe with this mideval with organs and 808 kick to win you over. "...360 degrees / of emcees / making these rap niggas sound like they're swinging from trees..."

The Dungeon Family really produced the goods here and it more than filled the space for new product from the Atlanta collective til Cee-Lo dropped his solo joint. The Outkast Hits collection was never going to cut it for hardcore fans who had every 'Kast longplayer anyway...
The aforementioned Cee-Lo features very prominently on this album while Dre3000 generally takes a backseat, although the unique Outkast MC does choose his contributions well in "Crooked Booty" and "Trans Df Express", arguably the two strongest joints on the LP. Both tracks are very addictive and bring the old school funk influences we have come to expect.
Another highlight are the 80s synth sounds of "Follow The Light", while "Excalibur" with it's rousing chorus proves good closure towards the end of the album. "6 Minutes" utilises elements from old school classic "The Show" but also creates a worthy head nodder in itself.
Those are some of my favourite moments although truth told there's not a weak track. The production is exemplorary as you'd expect from Oraginized Noize.
Anyone switched on to the refreshing twist The Dungeon Family in their numerous guises have brought into hip-hop will no doubt run not walk to get this, their first group album, and quite right too, it's superb.
