Product Description

A Tribe Called Quest ~ Love Movement

Amazon.com

Tribe's last album--they announced their breakup just prior to its release--has all of the problems of Midnight Marauders and Beats, Rhymes, and Life: they're just not People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm or The Low End Theory, Tribe's first two releases. That said, so what? Late-era Tribe is still a force to be reckoned with, even if it's not as much fun or doesn't have all the possibilities of Phife Dog, Q-Tip, and Ali Shaheed Muhammad's early work. The Love Movement's backing tracks recall previous releases but tend to be subtler--and therefore less than memorable--and a few of the tracks here are almost indistinguishable from one another. Q-Tip and Phife Dog bust out with few catch phrases (the exception is "Give Me," on which they rhyme "Boyz II Men, ABC, BBD--naw, we ain't none of them"); overall, they sound more mature than ever before. Are they really? At times, yes, and it seems that maturity is one of hip-hop's few unforgivable sins. --Randy Silver

The reviewer who said "this album isn't as close to as great as their previous 3" has no place calling himself "probably the world's greatest tribe fan." Tribe put out 4 albums before The Love Movement, not 3.
Now that I got that off of my chest, I think the Love Movement is highly underrated. I think the members of Tribe knew exactly how they wanted to go out: subtly and smoothly. If you listen closely, you'll find that this album contains the same social consciousness that made them famous, particularly on tracks such as "The Love" and perhaps less obviously on songs such as "Give Me." But the most important statement this album makes is about love on all levels, a message that doesn't always have to come in a complex package. And quite simply, this is one of the most chill albums ever made.
Is "The Love Movement" their best work? Probably not. Is it a darn good hip hop album? You better believe it. All who were disappointed in this album should give it another spin.
I can't wait till Tribe makes their new millenium comeback in a few months...
By the way, to the reviewer who only counted 3 previous works, the one you left off is Beats, Rhymes, and Life, another underappreciated album.

While I happily defended BEATS, RHYMES, & LIFE from the onslaught of disgruntled Tribe fans, I am not prepared to do the same with this album.
Whether it be the in-fighting between Tip & Phife, the label drama with Jive Records, or JayDee trying to juggle this & Slum Village's FANTASTIC VOL. 2 (FANTASTIC VOL. 2 was also suppose to be a 1998 release, until A&M Records shut down, and the album wound up being released in 2000 instead), THE LOVE MOVEMENT is not all it could have been.
The Ummah beatwork this time out seems rushed. Considering that the album was held back (it was originally suppose to be a Valentine's Day release...get it?) They at least could have polished it up a little bit more, as most of the production sounds unfinished. Meanwhile, Tip & Phife's chemistry doesn't seem to be...THERE anymore. It's seems that they just said their verses and go home. Even though they try to convey the LOVE aspect of the album, it's hard, considering that they were on the verge of splitting and can't show their chemisrty anymore.
While the first single, "FIND A WAY", has a pulse as far as chemistry goes, the others like "STEP IT UP", "PAD & PEN", "BUSTA'S LAMENT", "HOT 4 U", & "AGAINST THE WORLD", show that Tip & Phife are lost a duo. Other inexcuseable moments are "DA BOOTY" (Ugh. Too bad for words), "LIKE IT LIKE THAT" ("Do/You/Like it? Say 'yeah' if you like it like that". Nice hook, guys!), & "ROCK ROCK Y'ALL" (a very sucky track for a very mediocre posse cut!). The biggest crime is "GIVE ME".

it's almost impossible to review this cd without the obligatory comparison to old-school tribe, but i'm going to try anyway. as perhaps the first clearly defined concept album tribe called has released, "the love movement" certainly transmits a special, unqiue vibe. it's full of bass and more mellow tunes that focus principally, but not surprisingly, on love. it's not about the elation and passion of love; instead it's got more of a 60s peace and love flavor, which is refreshing. it's easy to group a lot of the songs under the same category because many sound so alike. the more upbeat songs, "steppin it up" and "rock rock y'all", though they're as good as anything here, seem a little out of place as a result. it makes the record hard to appreciate during the first couple listens. but there is quality here: "find a way" is a great song about the back-and-forth endearing frictions of a relationship; "common ground" spits the necessary wisdom about how to live and love. it's got more soul than anything on the record; "4 moms" is a nice little instrumental, but instantly likeable; you'll notice there's alot of synthesized bass on the cd, which is cool at first, but gets a little tired after a while. there's a couple weak tracks, especially "give me", which is the poorest they've done in years. sorry, but noreaga just doesn't fit with tribe - styles conflict distractingly. the extra six songs are nice to have, but don't all fit in. on top of that, they only drag out the length of an already way too long cd. such a concept album could only have worked well with something around 40-45 minutes, because it can really only hold your attention that long. it sounds silly, but it's true.Read more ›

I am prolly one of the biggest Tribe Called Quest fans in the world and I'm gonna have to say this album isn't even close to as great as there first three albums were. This was the first album I bought of the Tribe and when I did, I thought that The Love Movement was the best album I've heard in a long time. Because of how much I loved the album I thought that I should buy all there albums and see how great they were. When I did I noticed that The Low End Theory, Midnight Mauraders, and Peoples Instinctive Travels were just unbelievably incredible. Thats when I became a huge Tribe fan. Back to The Love Movement though. I must say "Find A Way", "Common Ground", and "Busta's Laiment" are great songs with excellent lyrics as always and superb beats. Those 3 songs alone give the album a star. The rest of the first 15 songs are given another star and the bonus tracks deserve to give the album a third. If you were thinking about buying this album while not owning the first 3 albums of the Tribe, that might not be wise considering the extreme enjoyment and relaxation you can get from the first 3 excellent albums.
