It takes a few listens to sink in, but on Aquemini, Outkast have pulled off a rare feat in hip-hop: they've made a good record that's a masterpiece of subtlety. What's more, it's their third record, and they've yet to fall into a rut--and that alone puts them in line for an award. The Organized Noize production crew is sublime, working with live musicians and crafting hook-filled soundscapes that complement Big Boi and Andre Benjamin's melodic patter. (See "Rosa Parks," "Chonkyfire," and the epic "Liberation," which features Erykah Badu, Cee Lo, and Big Rube--and clocks in at just under nine minutes.) Classy and intelligent, Outkast haven't sacrificed anything in their quest to make challenging, innovative hip-hop that forgoes idle boasting for the duo's message. A sample, from the title track: "Now, question: Is every nigga wit dreads for the cause? / Is every nigga wit golds for the fall? Naw / So don't get caught in appearance." --Randy Silver

The Source
Aquemini is a brilliant record.... It possesses an uncanny blend of sonic beauty, poignant lyricism and spirituality that compels without commanding. The record offers a rich blend of potent beats--tight snares, booming kicks and cool rimshots--and a diverse tapestry of various musical textures....

One of the most original and creative rap albums to come out in a long time - if you like rap you gotta hear this!, January 8, 2006
Reviewer: C. Cross "music lover" (New Haven, CT USA) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)
Just when everyone thought that rap couldn't get any worse, OutKast released his album "Aquemini" to turn the world upside-down. This album essentially comes out of left-field considering that every other mainstream rap album is boring gangster club rap. The fact that this was a critically and commercially popular artist and album definitely helps the future of rap. OutKast is a surprisingly good and charismatic Southern rapper who, although he's not as distinctive as, say, Eminem, will certainly win you over. What's great about his delivery is how odd and how FAST he is - he's definitely a unique personality in the rap world. He can spit incredibly complicated words so fast that you'll have no idea how he manages to do it. The lyrics are also surprisingly good and definitely catchy which helps things a great deal (they aren't necessarily "deep" all the time, but they're pretty funny and fun to listen to). Only one hit is included on this album, "Rosa Parks", and the rest up hold very well as the production is top-notch. This is definitely one of the most creative rap albums to come out in recent years, and if you're a rap fan then you're doing yourself a disservice by not checking this out (get "Stankonia" too!). Highly recommended!

Highlights include:
the entire album!

Definitely, Outkastastic, December 12, 2005
Reviewer: Victor Marmalade "Bill" (Warren, MI) - See all my reviews
Outkast is no stranger to the world of creativity. And they really prove it well with this album. I first bought Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik and was appalled by their laid- back funky performance. And sorry to say I havent bought ATLiens yet but that will be added to my collection soon. Aquemini was my second bought Outkast album, and it was truly amazing from 'Hold on, be strong' to 'Chonkyfire'. Dre and Big Boi spit fire on this album. I bought this album last year and it has been smiliing at me on my CD tower every day since. Even the cover to this album, a real portrait of Outkast's southern lifestyle. My favorite songs on this album would have to be 'Return of the "G"' and 'Spottieottiedopalicious'. This album also features live instrumentation. Everything from real drums to xylophones. If you have all/one Outkast album and don't have Aquemini, you should definitely check this out. One of their best.
