blissblog: “OutKast have such impeccable sonic/psycho-sexual/cultural/etc credentials, and it seems perverse and churlish to not to join in the applause…. but they’re starting to seem like a sort of Fugees of Crunk, donchathink? “
No, Outkast are cool, you’ve just got reviewer-itis, always a risk if you do this professionally. Your critique makes sense within your own intensely developed critical framework but you’re in danger of neglecting the fact that Outkast are a wicked band and Stankonia is a great (though flawed) album. And there ain’t many like that around.
And what’s so bad about the Fugees? Or Lauren Hill for that matter? It’s just tunes.
