What People are Saying about OutKast

8 February 2004 / The Atlanta Journal - Constitution (p. L2)

OutKast's Grammy-nominated double CD, "Speakerboxxx/The Love Below," has everyone talking. While taping a "Rock the Vote" TV ad, Democratic presidential hopeful Gen. Wesley Clark earnestly looked into the camera and said, "I don't care what the other candidates say, I don't think OutKast is really breaking up. Andre 3000 and Big Boi just cut solo records, that's all." Here's what other folks are saying:

"I really love the OutKast record. I think it's a monumental achievement, I really do. There's some part of it that's still growing on me, and I've played it too many times since it came out. I pretty much bought it the week it came out, and I played it so much that I think I drove some people crazy." -- Patterson Hood, frontman/Drive-By Truckers

"I think it's incredible. I think it revolutionizes the rap game. To me, man, I think OutKast are the Beatles of rap. And when you think of modern Southern music, they are as big as the Allman Brothers were at that time." -- Stokes Nielson, frontman/Lost Trailers

"I think what they've done is amazing. It was refreshing to hear some of it here. It might take me a while to get my head around it, so maybe it's not my time to understand or relate with it yet. But I just think that new one, 'Speakerboxxx,' that's my favorite one. 'The Love Below' is heavy. I like and I understand what he's trying to do. 'Speakerboxxx' I think is great. It comes at a perfect time." -- Dizzee Rascal, 19-year-old British rapper

"They didn't leave [expletive] for nobody else to do. It gets better every time I listen to it." -- Erykah Badu, R&B singer (and former girlfriend of Andre "Dre" Benjamin)

"That record's like crack. People run up to you, like: 'DudehaveyouheardthatOutKast record?!' Just excited! And I'm like, 'Yeah I've listened to it three times in a row. Bought five of them.' Then you meet somebody, like, two months later, shaking with the same excitement, like, 'HaveyouheardtheOutKastrecord?' And it's, 'Here we go again.' It's addictive." -- Dallas Austin, music, TV and film producer

"I think very highly of them. OutKast is the new generation of that part of the music business to me. Obviously, they're talented musicians, they have incredible talent. They're the Michael Jordan of hip-hop." -- Pat Monahan, frontman/San Francisco rock band Train

Haha! That's one funny quote. I'll admit that Outkast song "Hey yah" is catchy.

Thats pretty funny. Like an idiot, I bought the cd. It was horrible. Hey Ya is catchy, yes, but that was the only song on the double cd that I found catchy. I had a hard time finding someone to give the cd to, but I finally succeeded. Oh well... different strokes, I guess.

I've ben a 'Kast fan since "southernplayalisticcadillacmusic" and for my money this was their worst outing yet. Every since Stakonia there has been a battle between critics to see who could be the biggest fan-boy.

It is typical of critics to catch on late and the try to make up for their neglect by over praising a fading group.

Very different from the Allman Brothers, for sure. However, I think they are the cream of the hip-hop crop. It's not my favorite genre, but I'm glad Outkast won the Grammys instead of 50 cent and the like. They are more pop than rap, at least with the latest album. It's good, fun party music for the masses and there is always room for that.

The Allman Brothers are more like Mozart, more of a refined taste for the connoisseur

I don't know squat about Outkast. I do watch a lot of SNL reruns, though (or maybe it was Mad TV), and Outkast was on. Their guitar player had some nice licks. Real nice tone, too.

Nice tone huh? I listened to a couple songs of the cd and one was an all out jazz song. I'm not talking synthesizers or anything. I think they were actually playing so I have to give them credit for at least playing their instruments. And as far as rap goes I suppose they would be the best.

Like some one else said, I too am glad that Outkast won the grammy instead of fitty g-dizzle nizzle cent or snoop dog. Someone told me that "Hey Yah" is a cover of some 80's song. Just like every rapper does is cover songs. They have no real talent. At least no 50 cents or snoop dog or eminem or toopac . and they're music is crap. How could anyone pefer "murder kill drugs bling bling booty hizzle fizzle nizzle gangsta g" kind of music over " Walk along the river, sweet lullaby, it just keeps on flowing,
It don't worry 'bout where it's going, no, no.
Don't fly, mister blue bird, I'm just walking down the road,
Early morning sunshine tell me all I need to know
" kind of music?

Why anyone would listen to Hip Hop or Rap is beyond me.Kids,I can understand,since they will listen to whatever MTV tells them to.

But people on this site?I'd think everyone here would have better taste than that.

Why listen to this hip hop/rap garbage when there are so many better things to listen to?

Like The Allman Brothers.

Or Miles Davis.

Or John Coltrane.

Or Robert Johnson.

Or Gov't Mule.

Or The Beatles.

Or Cream.

Or BB King.

Or Freddie King.

Or Albert King.

Or Derek Trucks.

Or Jeff Beck.

Or George Harrison.

Or Bob Dylan.

Or The Who.

Or Wayne Shorter.

Or any number of thousands of talented musicians who put out GOOD stuff.

I never could understand why people always have to listen to whatever is "new".

I enjoy listening to my Robert Johnson album recorded in 1936 or my John Coltrane stuff recorded in the early 60s,just as much as I enjoy listening to the newest albums by my favorite artists.

WB.

The hit "Hey Ya" is undeniably catchy, although OutKast's Grammy performance was far from as enjoyable as the video. Nothing else from the album, though, either by Andre or what's-his-name, holds any attraction. And they sure don't put one in the mind of the Allman Brothers Band, except they are the hugest things for their times from Georgia.

This one "Hey Ya" song resonates, though, because it has, besides the retro visuals in the video, a spunky '60s rhythm, which I think is quite similar to that of Jimi Hendrix's "Drivin' South" (1967), which is itself reminiscent of much of the lighthearted, bouncy rhythm that was in the air at the time, such as on Earl Hooker's "How Long Can This Go On" (1962; no question mark).

Here are 30-sec samples of the Jimi and Earl songs. There are not one but two versions of "Drivin' South" on the BBC album; the second one has worse sound quality but thrillinger (?) playing. Also, don't be put off by any negative connotations of the term "smooth" in the Earl title, because Earl is totally funky.

Maybe the ABB should cover an OutKast song at the Beacon?

Gregg Allman is a HUGE rap fan, so it's possible
