I like this one. Nothing mind blowing about it but if you digged his 1st solo album this one should be no exception. Off one listen he did not raise the bar but he stayed at the bar.

Is it as good as Sir Lucious? I heard one track and it was way way out there, even for Outkast/BB.

about halfway through this so far.... Clearly not as good as Sir Lucious. I will give my thoughts once I hear this a few times.

I think you were a little too hard on this one Wayne. It grows on me with every listen. Yeah it's a little different, but that doesnt' make it bad. I think it's on par with Sir Lucious.

Yeah...shits def not what I expected...but neither was Chico Dusty and that album grew on me after a few spins. I imagine this album will do the same. The lyrics and originality (yet familiarity) are still there, it's just the slightly dancy beats that throw it off. I still liked the album, it was just different. Shit, I felt the same about Stankonia and its my fav Kast album now. I'll save my rating for after I give it a while to sink in.

I agree about it growing on you. His 1st one did the same to me. But this one seems to be growing on me faster. Dope production. He blended r&B, alternative, and rap well. Doesn't sound forced for the msot part except that song with Kelly Rowland.

Well I was right about this joint needing to sink in a bit. Like Kev says, I don't think the "experimentation" sounds forced or out of place at all. Kast is always pushing the envelope and forcing the listener to see their vision rather than cater to the consumer. This joint is the same to me. At first, it's def not what you expect, but the one thing that is consistent is Big Boi's dope flow and lyrics. My ears eventually settled into the production and now I actually like it a lot. And even though most people might skip it, Raspberries is my fuckin joint! I just wish In The A featured Killer Mike. He would have fit perfect on that shit. Overall, Jesus Piece, Trouble Man, and ONIFC (the other 3 albums I've been bumpin a lot) have more immediate replay value but this album gets the same rating at 4.0. I still enjoy it just as much.

I was disappointed with this album. Wanted to like it because Sir Lucious Left Foot was so dope, but this one just doesn't do it for me.
