Brilliant album. Buy it people.

Heard it a few times, agree it's great. Hey Ya was probably one of my favourite singles from the last few months (Girls Aloud and Emma Bunton excluded.)

I thought you might like it, Dre's half (The Love Below) is quite jazzy. ;)

Yeah, a few people have said it's quite Princey. Can't really see it myself, but it is very good.

Great stuff, a million miles away from a lot of the generic hip hop out there.

I'm confused by mention of the Love Below as 'Dre's half'? The prdoucer credits don't list him, or is he operating under a pseudonym?

Anyway, the Love Below is my favourite side, 'Roses' is great, and 'Hey ya!' is a fantastic track :beer:

Dre = André 3000 = André Benjamin.

Well excuuuuse me!

OutKast is the moron with the fro who acted like a moron on SNL last week, right?

I've only heard Hey Ya, but it's great. Sounds a bit like Funkadelic.

12-11-2003, 23:29:50
Yeah, they continue to surprise us with the antics as well as genre choices for music. I bet this tour is going to be even more outrageous than the last one.

Saw the video for 'Hey Ya!' on one of the music channels last night. It must be the first time I've watched a video from start to finish in the last month or two. Brilliant. Totally not the sort of thing I would imagine going for in a thousand years, but it was brilliant.

The video has the screaming girls in it, which made it a bit hard to listen to it good.

Bought the albums, and finally finished listening to both CDs. Listened to Speakerboxxx first and liked it, but it was sooooo long. Just finished listening to 'The Love Below' a couple of times, and again I liked that one, and it seemed to grow on me with repetition. However, this one was even longer, and it was a real trial to listen to in one sitting. Given that I didn't think it would suit me at all, even though I loved 'Hey Ya', I will listen to it again in the future, rather than consign it to the ranks of 'played once already, thank you very much'.

As Scabby said, "buy it[,] people".

I bought it, My Morning Jacket and British Sea Power two days ago.
Looking forward to giving them all a couple of listens.
