A change in music style is always risky. For Outkast, the switch from mostly rap vocals to melodic ones was perfected so well. I bought the physical copy of Stankonia from Newbury Comics last night for $9.99. Totally worth it. Outkast style of music is what I believe the perfect style of hip hop. Sharp vocals that flow well, funky beats, variety, and strong subjects. And a major plus, my favorite song of all time is included on this album, which is Ms. Jackson. If you can't tell already, this album is quite amazing. I recommend this to any fan of old-school hip hop like me.
