Outkast: The Love Below/Speakerboxxx
Buy! - (Arista)
The latest release from the monstrously talented Atlanta hip hop duo pairs together a solo album from each, packaged together as a 2-CD set. Big Boi's Speakerboxxx stays closest to Outkast's eclectic Southern-fried P-funk/hip hop while Andre 3000's The Love Below is a wild, freaky ride taking in soul, jazz, funk, psychedelic rock and lots more with Dre spending more time crooning like Prince than rapping. While uneven at times, both are frequently brilliant and contain some of the most memorable and creative hip hop of this year, or any other. 9/15/2003 - Don Yates
