RIP to Phife Dawg, the five foot assassin. What a dope album. I never knew Jarobi actually rapped, let alone could rap well! Busta on Mobius was reminiscent of Scenario. Much respect to everyone involved in this album's creation.

This has happened to me before when expecting a certain sound or vibe from an album that isn't there.

I'll have to revisit it in a few days and listen with "open ears."

But it wasn't what my ears wanted on first listen.

Doesn't mean I won't change my mind - I've certainly had that happened.

I wanted 1993 Tribe - it's 2016 and that Tribe no longer exists.

In response to Reply # 10


          

>on that solo Renaissance Q-tip production shit.
That was a great Q-Tip record.

What I feel with this one (on first listen and not all of it yet - still very early) that this is the "Kamal the Abstract" production shit.

Doesn't seems as coherent (sonic-ly or lyrical-ly) as the Tribe album *I* wanted hear that is in my head. But BRL and TLM didn't either.

I'll be watching SNL, and I'll keep listening - but on *first blush* its not the Tribe record I wanted.

I have been wrong before - notably about Gangstarr's Hard to Earn and The Beatnuts's first full length album. Those took months before they clicked in *my* head.

Thu Nov-10-16 04:01 PM by The3rdOne

  

          

I guess having "samples on live production" versus having "sample based production" really brought out a glaring difference for the group's chemistry. To me, Tip's production hasn't really took too much advances from The Renaissance on this album. That's why I made that analysis.

All I know is that this record seems to have more replay value than De La's album upon 1st day listens.....to me.

7. "it has a lot going on."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I really enjoy the music and vibe, though it's undoubtedly not a "Tribe" album no matter which album of theirs you want to compare it to. a lot of live instruments.

almost through my second listen, so far my biggest concern is that a lot of the lyrics feel half-done, there is a lot of mumbling or lines that shift direction mid-rhyme. it's awkward.

also not too impressed with Andre here, feels like his verse here and on Travi$ Scott's album shoulda swapped places.

and Jack White's (I assume) guitar outro to "Lost Somebody" feels lifted from a At the Drive-In track.

It's like they knew DT was going to win and this is the first official artistic statement in response to this new era.

SNL will be the same for comedy w Dave Chappelle reacting for the nation in what has been one of the biggest political/entertainment forums this election cycle.

They updated the formula quite nicely.

Off the first few listens I like the first half of the album best.

And the first track Space Program?? Wheeeeeew!!!!!!!

And yes, it's better than the De La (tho the De La is dope) lol.

This is just the album that was needed after this week.

It's deep. It's playful. It's fun. It's sad. It's hopeful. It's critical.

The back and forth is great.
Andre 3K!
We The People!

Lost Somebody is beautiful and heartbreaking. The way the track cuts short right after "no more crying" just like Phife'/ life was cut short.

I dunno about you but I love it.

Gotta dive back in and digest it further...

Or shall I say on my side of the building? Most of these folks WFH on Fridays.

I'm staring, out of the massive windows in front of my desk, at Camden Yards and The Big Crabcake while this joint plays on repeat. Of course, I only have one ear bud in because I want to hear if someone from the other side of the building decides to sneak up on me.

That Bang & Olufsen is gonna be a treat to my ears on the ride home.

I listened first thing this morning when I woke and damn I felt close to tears.

I had low expectations, I couldn't fathom how 18 years since their last album and 23 since my favourite LP of theirs that the vibe could be recaptured.

I love it!

The album is really good.

It's helping me get through this tough week.

I really like Consequence on this record. His verses are well placed.

55. "This album is flat out amazing and impeccable"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

even by Tribe standards. There isn't a hair out of place on the entire thing, and it's flawlessly executed.

Maybe the most endearing aspects of it are Tip and Phife's telepathic chemistry. You can tell they were in sync on the songs they worked on together, with "together" being the operative word. Both apart and complimentary, their emcee performances ground the album, leaving the music to go somewhere else. Everything feels like Tribe, no matter what they did sonically, but more importanly it *feels* like Tribe.

Q-Tip just moved up even further on the list of all-time greats, his flow and lyricism have taken another leap forward. The guy was on song with his heir apparent and he sounded both contemporary and masterful at the same time, and that point is driven home when you realize 3 Stacks is using one of Tip's flows. And Phife's vigor, whimsy and sharpness betrays the fact that he was literally dying during the recording of this album. I can't say enough how good it was to hear him and Tip in harmony, and Phife sounding and feeling like he did on Low End. And Jarobi low keyed MURDERED this album.

Even though the record is dark and experiental, that subliminal effect that Tribe has is still in effect. It's not angry, but aggressive and hopeful. I have no clue how they presented the current frustration and palpable dread of black people in America, while simulataneously offering an uplifting spirit with equal precision. This is the work of gods.

It's almost unheard of in Hip Hop for a group or artist to still be hitting creative high marks with almost thirty years in, but between them and De La, The Native Tongues showed off and showed out this year and once again showed us the handbook to the future...but this time as veterans and not newcomers.

This is really the last album, the fact that Phife isn't here to make another one and their contract is fulfilled drives the finality home. But this is one hell of a document to leave behind, and their legacy has come full circle in the process.

344. "I never would, Phife held his own with Tip who is a Top 20 MC all-time"
In response to Reply # 62


  

          

even though he never gets the credit for being so.

Kendrick's verse is a whirlwind on that shit, Phife's sets the tone so nicely though, with those random word associations, quotables and everyman swagger.

I go back and forth on favorite track but that one wins out more times than it loses.

This song and by extension, this album is fucking beautiful.

at home rockin to this right now. She says that her favorite song at the moment is "Kids..." Damn! I feel good that I'm 2 for 2 with children who enjoy and appreciate MY music.

My 24 year old son sent me a snapshot of the album cover as it played through his phone. I've had him listening to Tribe, De La, etc. since he was in diapers.

45 ain't so bad at all. LOL

And this album is phenomenal. I hope they tour with De La, Common, and/or The Roots at the beginning of next year to bring that momentum to us live and direct! Live and direct!

I woulda pulled Kweli's verse on the Killing Season after he's done it gets real. Overall all pretty good a little all over the place but still good. Lost Somebody is terrific. Cons got busy on this album Jarobi did really well too. I like two a lot, side one I got register it more it the side that is kinda everywhere

69. "Just finished."
In response to Reply # 0


          

So many thoughts but I'll just leave some preliminary ones here.

- first "disc" stronger than the second IMO
- that said "Conrad Tokyo" probly my favorite track on first listen
- such a Tribe album in terms of vibe (back and forth MCing, things like that) but can be compared to no Tribe album before it (a good thing)
- more traditional than De La's album production-wise in that it's more boom bap but it's no question a modern, updated sound even in its nostalgia
- so much more to take in lyrically on repeat listens but Phife sounds as good as ever lyrically and flow-wise and he and QTip didn't lose a step in terms of their comparability. They are so natural together. Sad we'll never get it again
- the guest spots work really well. Paak and Kendrick are highlights. But none sound forced
- nice to hear Jarobi and Consequence spitting
- I love how they didn't play up the "we're back!" Factor a bunch. They acted like they never left and it showed in the album's consistency and fluidity

More to come. But I'm so happy. So glad to have this and Common to calm me this week. And De La.

need to give it a few more spins but so far so good. sounds like a good mix of all their previous albums with some updated sounds

i was also pleasantly surprised with busta, he came with it

oh and strangely enough my least favorite track is the paak one. i'm a huge fan but i could've done without him on there

Stated in the Rolling Stone podcast that his biggest contribution was encouraging Phife to stick with this project. They show his picture teleconferencing with the others in this Complex piece. Also, looks like they'll be a documentary of some type by Complex released soon.

89. "he was working on the luke cage joints at that time"
In response to Reply # 86


  

          

but that kinda low key shows the TRUE influence/impact in sound that he had on the previous joints

Album is still good tho

In response to Reply # 85


  

          

not necessarily because it doesn't all sound pretty Tip-like, but these days so many big albums are so earnest in crediting everybody involved with the music even if all they did was turn a couple knobs while walking through the room.

But yeah, the fact that he was working on Luke Cage means it would have been difficult to work on the album.

the starting of every album except People's Instinctive Travels has been music and words building up to the drum (Excursions, Steve Biko, Phony Rappers, Start It Up), they rehashed that on The Space Program as well

that BR&L and TLM lacked.

I particularly loved Tip & Phife in unison in the beginning of The Space Program, then later in the song it's just Phife solo with the same words. The NBA references on Dis Generation made me smile too...RIP Phife. Hats off to Q-Tip on the amazing beats & rhymes. I'm just so happy that an album of this caliber exists, and it somehow came from ATCQ in 2016.

In response to Reply # 0


          

listened to the album for the first time this morning. 30 degrees out...I hit the street all Northfaced up and walked to the coffee spot. A shade over 2 miles each way. Nice, brisk walk with Tribe in the Bose cans. Thoughts after 1 complete listen:

Space Program is good...real good

Phife has some dope lines in We the People

Solid Wall of Sound might be my second favorite

I don't hate Kids...I feel like I should like it more than I do, though. Just a little wacky...I can't call it.

I don't usually care for rapper sex songs, but they made Enough work. It works. I like it.

They should have taken that 1st verse off of Mobius. The way Busta dismantled that track just wasn't fair...to anyone else.

Lost Somebody was tough

Conrad Tokyo made me smile ear to ear

On one of the pages it speaks about how he already had beats and skeletons for a bunch of stuff. It does sound Kamaal The Abstract-like but with dope rhymes and with some proper editing to weed out the unneeded stuff that meandered on that album. Those songs you mentioned, especially Melatonin, is solo Tip stuff all the way. I love it.

But hasn't it been revealed that the first 3 Tribe albums were essentially Qtip solo productions as well? That's what I've heard anyways. All this 'Qtip handled most of the production work' talk....how do people think the first three albums were made? Pretty sure Tip has already said 'I produced all the beats for the first three Tribe Called Quest albums'.

Tribe Tip somehow says more by saying less in the rhyme.

Solo Tip says more by saying more in the rhyme.

Noticed that Jarobi didn't get a writing credit for that song, so it might be a track that was conceived earlier, and Tip might have just had Jarobi drop a verse on it to make it a ATCQ song.

I can't really date his verse via any references but hopefully they have more stuff together in the can.

130. "The Secret History of A Tribe Called Quest’s Final Album *swipe*"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I listened to it all weekend to let it sink in...man, Tribe came through! This LP is excellent and so timely...they really know how to start an album off. Jarobi goes off on the Space Program! Love hearing Phife & Tip together again.

http://www.okayplayer.com/news/secret-history-a-tribe-called-quest-we-got-it-from-here-thank-you-for-your-service.html


On Wednesday evening, New York City’s music community came together in the VW Dome at Queens PS 1 museum to hear A Tribe Called Quest’s final album We’ve Got It From Here…Thank You 4 Your Service for the first time. The assembled congregation comprised a who’s who of culture warriors including DJs, A&Rs, hip-hop journalists and most of the Okayplayer and Okayafrica staff as well Tribe’s extended family, management team and reps from Epic Records—all of whom had woken up that morning to learn that the KKK’s preferred candidate swept the crucial battleground states to win the electoral vote, becoming the President-Elect of the United States.

Woken up, that is, assuming they had slept at all in the previous 24 hours. The emotions people brought with them into that room ranged from shock to despondency to anger to a surreal, punch-drunk sense of disconnection. It is safe to say that everyone present welcomed the moment of community, if only to reaffirm their sanity by commiserating with old friends over a world that seemed to have lost its damn mind overnight. It’s also safe to say that the expectations placed on the music we were all about to hear were crazily, dizzily, high. They were probably dangerously high right from the moment the existence of a new ATCQ album was confirmed—the return of a game-changing force in music 18 years in the making. A reunion embarked upon on the very eve of one member’s untimely passing. But in that moment of post-election shock, most everyone in the room, consciously or not, rationally or not, was asking even more of A Tribe Called Quest. Most of us were looking to Tribe’s music to—if not save the damn world—then certainly to restore order to our little universe.

Impossibly, against all odds, as the first few bars of their track “Space Program” came on, A Tribe Called Quest delivered the bars, recorded months previously, that expressed exactly what everyone in that room needed to hear: “We got to get it together forever / Got to get it together for brothers / got to get it together for sisters / For mothers and fathers and dead n****s… We got to make something happen.”

All of which is to say that if you had to quickly sum up this album in a single word, if, say, you needed to email it to someone urgently, the single word subject line of that email would doubtless be: “important.” Important not just in a musicological sense (it is that) because A Tribe Called Quest’s album turns out to be less of a grand opus proclaiming the peak of the group’s sonic evolution, and much more a living document of the collective spirit and the simple, selfless camaraderie that gave the group life in the first place.

The musical groups we idolize—whether we imagine them as starship crews, cliques of cool kids or nomadic bands of hippie outlaws—are in some sense models of who we want to be, our ideal group-selves if you will. For that reason, nothing hurts a true devotee of hip-hop more than surveying the catalogue of pioneering progressive artists of a certain era who preached unity yet couldn’t keep their little 2 and 3-man crews together. This is why this audio record of Busta Rhymes, Consequence, Jarobi, Ali Shaheed Muhammad and—at it’s center—Phife Dawg and Q-Tip—rediscovering their chemistry line by line, celebrating the fierce joy of brotherhood as they spar in the creative mock combat of friends pushing each other toward excellence—is so important. It is a blueprint for how to get it together.

All of which is simply to frame why recording—in the moment—the history of this album is also important. For many of us, this album will be intertwined with a capital-H in History. We will remember that Tribe reunited on The Tonight Show the day after the Paris bombings. We will always remember where we were when we got the news that Phife Dawg was no longer among us. We will remember that we first heard this album while we were still trying to fathom the phrase ‘President Trump’. But the history of the creation itself—the process, the obstacles, the bubble and hiss of group chemistry, the decision to put out a new album at all—may be even more important. Because whether you are listening from within this moment of national division and pessimism, or listening outside of time, they are notes on how to get it right–and how to get it back right when it’s gone wrong.

Key members of A Tribe Called Quest’s inner circle provided the Secret History that follows, including our founder Questlove of The Roots, arguably Tribe’s #1 fan, who presided over their reunion on Jimmy Fallon’s set, Phife’s manager and best friend Dion Liverpool AKA DJ Rasta Root, his widow Deisha Taylor and Q-Tip’s longtime friend and Beats 1 collaborator Gary Harris (better known to many as “the man who signed D’Angelo”). Additionally, Q-Tip, Busta, Jarobi and Cons shared more insights and anecdotes about the album’s creation in conversation with Omar Dubois at the PS1 listening session.

Read on to receive the lessons their stories revealed.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

i understand that he was busy with Luke Cage while they were recording, & i understand that he might not actually have even played that big a role in their other albums either.

but, the production on this new album feels lacking overall. too much emphasis on bare guitars & bass. needs finishing touches that Ali Shaheed could've tweaked in certain places.

& there was a gap of time between this release date & Luke Cage. They shoulda figured out a way to have him play even a final minimal role, especially since its the last album they'll ever make.

My friend pointed out how much Jarobi sounds like Mike G from the JBs on this. And Tip''s got some People's Instinctive flow going. Cons is perfection on this. "Fuck you, and who you think I should be/Forward Movement". Damn. Great track.

when I first heard Whateva Will Be, the bassline stood out to me like I heard it before. Then I realized that it's the same sample used in Kurious' "Mansion & A Yacht" feat. Sadat X & Mike G. Just listened again and Jarobi does sound like him...great song.

A few people said they liked the rawness of it but I'm having a hard time getting past how unpolished it sounds.

It starts out very strong but I feel like it doesn't hold. Lost someone could have been so much stronger but it was lacking....

its def better than TLM but behind BRL

That's all I wanted. The album is a monster all the way through The Killing Season. Then falls off a little. I dig 2 of the last 5 songs.

when they realize the song is about replacing hate with love, and that they subbed out "Donald Trump" with "Phife Dawg" throughout the song.

Has nothing to do with donald trump, other than the vocal snippet that they cut off that just says donald

This is my jam. Reminds me of their playful style!!!

3000 and Tip has such a nice collabo in here... they should do an album together.


I ain't even gon' lie, I was probably high
Just forgot to call you back, simple as that
I ain't no almanac, so lick my dictionary
I might just call a cab 'cause I dig canary
Yellow accents on a dark bitch
I met her back when she kept all her carpet
I'm well aware all that shit is fantasy
I double dare y'all to fuck your plan B
That's ta mean a mamma's mannerisms
That mean, don't mean to get vulgar, but it some
Hoes in this bitch like a box of donuts
It's colder out than a bitch standing on the corner
Condolences to niggas that got erased
I pour out some liquor on the cops' graves
Mmm, digital church bells
Ringin' 'cross the street, show it work well


(Kids) Kids, don't you know how all this shit is fantasy?
(Kids) Kids, don't you know how all this shit is fantasy?
(Kids) Kids, don't you know how all this shit is fantasy?
(Kids) For real (For real?)

Kids, don't you know how all this shit is fantasy?
(Kids) Kids, don't you know how all this shit is fantasy?
(Kids) Kids, don't you know how all this shit is fantasy?
(Kids) For real (For real?)
For real (For real)


I don't wanna get up, no, I don't wanna go to school
I don't wanna be the best, don't wanna follow rules
Mom, I think you fuckin' lied to me
Three Stacks said all this shit is fantasy
It's my time, gon' put a little life to it
If life's an obstacle then I'mma bike through it
I see her like a kiddie on the carousel
If I hurl while I go around, what the hell
And that went well, so I'm compelled
To have visions of getting chicken while my friends get jailed
My young nigga motto was, "Fuck it, I'm already grown"
And I dream of when I'm 16, I'm out my home
That petty though, cut my mama boyfriend though
It's kinda lull like this old head hustle, yo
He cognizant of a nigga ride and die
I see us getting money through my green eyes


(Kids) Kids, don't you know how all this shit is fantasy?

Yeah, all the kids, all the what, uh, what


Yeah, all the badass kids, uh
Kids say I'm the shit
I'm Chick-fil-A nuggets made on the french fries
The spicy Popeyes and Red Lobster biscuits
And girls scout thin mints
Pardon my penmanship, but oh shit
It's like I'm hungry now again
And I can't do nothing about it because my teeth are all rotted
And my mom and my pop, they just grand
And empathize with me 'cause they were little
Too bad they can't get back they "'member when's"
The grown-up stories don't work
In the court of the kiddies', the judgement is in
And while y'all doing all y'all bids, y'all reminisce as kids
Fuck it, kids, the grown-ups want on up
They stood on the corner like you want some
Time, and probably felt like a loner
Smelled like a stoner, snuck through their
So when they question you about who or who you ain't voting
Complaining that you always moaning, never saying good morning
Storming out my house and slamming doors like you pay your bills
They been through it too, though
They were kids like you, though
But what if they che nudo and hand you with the cheat code
Through a game you just start playing, no extra man
Leave you reckless on the court with no high percentage shot
Just a bunch of, "You got it, nigga, just give it what you got"
Yeah, a little different on the yacht, but ain't gon' lie, I miss kayaking
I love the young niggas, and they do too, they just be acting
Like a bunch of retired tired thesbians, a bit too salty
Shit, their blood pressure high, why?
They don't play no more, probably


(Kids) Kids, don't you know how all this shit is fantasy?
(Kids) Kids, don't you know how all this shit is fantasy?

Love the album, hate the song.

Reminds me of "Benz Friendz" on Future's Honest album, totally out of place, sounds whack and I don't care what they two of them are rapping about. Totally useless for me.

it started out like "eh, not my favorite but I don't hate it" and quickly progressed to "I fuckin can't stand this song", lol. I deleted it so the album flows right on through without it coming on.

... are SO familiar but I can't figure it out and it's driving me fucking insane. I can't be sure but I think it's a recent hip-hop song that has the same style guitar licks and the same kind of distant/echoing sound to it, if that makes sense.

I know the above is pathetic and could probably describe like 3 trillion songs so go easy on me. It's just killing me that I can't come up with it and I didn't know where else to turn haha. Someone help !

That was hugely disappointing, specifically because it feels like a wasted opportunity for two greats. But you nailed it, the track sticks out like a sore thumb. Everything was rolling and grooving up to that point and that song was just a massive left turn out of nowhere.

I figured I may like it more on subsequent listens but that hasn't happened.

Maybe it'll stand up better on its own but as a part of this album it's not very good IMO. Mostly due to the beat.

Exactly. When I heard Andre would be a feature, I expected something much better. Not knocking anyone who likes it, but the beat doesn't work in the flow of the album IMO.

I was walking down the street vibing off the album. When that part happened I literally laughed out loud. It didn't make any sense. Sound like some kids were in the studio playing around with the drum machine and it got recorded with the song. I actually said something like "WTF, Tip?", lol.

In response to Reply # 187


  

          

so the question is why?

I figure it's to symbolise everything going wrong as a person is dying. The same way how when the song stops abruptly at the end half way through her singing - that symbolises Phife's life getting cut short well before it should have.

It's symbolic

I like it.

Dope album, much love to ATCQ!

The way this song honors Phife, from his verse, to Q-Tip's verse about how Phife speaks to him now, just wow.

You can hear the love between them, like Phife left this earth knowing him and Q-Tip were brothers again.

Best hip-hop album of 2016, imo.

Them starting the song off rhyming together makes me want to shed tears man. And when says," Trini Gladiator" I smile every damn time.
"You better flame em in the Js that they standing in/ Ostracize their memory for not remembering". Tip shines like a muthafucka on the whole album.

This album is everything I could've wanted. Most importantly it's authentic for the group and the individuals. Smh, can't get over the quality.

Even Pitchfork is properly showing love

>Most importantly

This is what I've been saying to everyone about this album. After 18 years, that's the hardest thing to pull off IMO. Because there's so many things pulling you in different directions. Balancing what you think the core fans want, trying not to abandon the old sound while at the same time making something that sounds updated and modern, etc. It can't be easy. But they pulled it off so naturally and flawlessly and created the perfect bookend to their legacy. It's nostalgic and modern all the same. They intertwined the two so organically. I can't say enough about it.

^^^ this times a million. Makes me so happy knowing that. Of all the artists we've lost that I was a fan of, Phife hurt the most. There was always just something so endearing about him that drew me to him, and obviously so many others. He just seemed so genuine and authentic at all times. So to know that he passed on good terms with Tip, a relationship that obviously caused him a lot of pain over the years, puts me at ease.

I love both. But this album isn't nearly as experimental and risky as EC was, for better or worse.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

When the album was first announced, I was skeptical because I thought the label was making a cash grab and putting out a bunch of unreleased tracks and labeling as a fully fleshed-out album from Tribe.

After a while I figured Tip wouldn't put out something that half-stepped because he cares too much about his legacy and about Tribe's track record. When 15 and some other folks who heard the record left some positive comments around the net, I was fully on board.

I'm so glad I was wrong about this project. It took about 5 or 7 listens to really adapt to the change in sound from their last album, but this is dope.

Another poster above said the best thing about the sound in that the album is still Tribe, but modern. It shows that the band has grown in their musical tastes and also in their social conscious since most of the record has some form of social insight within the lyrics. 15 mentioned how The Roots actively sought to be more socially aware and serious with their music and that's what Tribe has done here. There are still some jams on the record, but this sounds less like something that would be on at a block party and more like an album that would be played in a car with two people who have more a more sophisticated view of the world than when they were in the twenties.

My sister was amazed at how cohesive it is and the level of detailing in this album. And for them just recording over the past year or so after being apart, this is a really good album. I'd put it a bit behind Beats, Rhymes, and Life, but I really like BR&L so that's not a knock on Thank You 4 Your Service.

just to show love. Got 2 other buddies to buy it at that price. Gotta make sure the support is shown.

Sounds like the album is selling pretty well, but I must admit I'm confused as to how exactly streams and such are measured in that regard.

Just buy the CD and Amazon gives you the MP3s.
Unless this one is excluded somehow?? I'm not seeing the normal Autorip: Includes FREE MP3 version of this album.

once you get the CD you can rip it yourself For $6.99 you'll be legal.

"It didn't take long for the world to celebrate the release of A Tribe Called Quest's semi-posthumous reunion album, We got it from Here… Thank You 4 Your service. Just a couple days after the album's release, the group's entire discography was charting on Billboard, and today it looks like they're in for even more good news—their first number one album since 1998's A Love Movement.

Billboard is forecasting that when the new charts are revealed this Sunday, Tribe will be sitting on top, projecting that the album will accumulate approximately 120,000 equivalent album units (a mixture of sales and streams). The larger point is that, at least for one week, we should rejoice in the mathematical proof that the world really does want a powerful new album from a classic group, something we also saw with De La Soul's success.

I bought the CD so I'm in there. Good for Tribe - not pointing a finger at them.

But 120,000 of the "mixture" seems so small for music.

Do kids listen to music anymore???

If so is the 120,000 number so low strictly because of pirating??

How is the mastering / mixing vs the streaming / iTunes version?

I like the album, but the mixing really takes me out of jamming to the music.

I'll probably buy the CD just to get a high quality version of the music and support the group, but if the mixing quality is better I'll make the buy sooner than later.

The 24bit version from hdtracks.com is the best, there's a significant difference between the regular CD FLAC vs the 24 bit (800 vs 1600 kb/sec).

I don't know if you listen to lossless but if you think the streamed (192 kb / 320kb) is bad then you'll probably enjoy the lossless version more or the 24bit if you want to spend the money on a digital release.

I had the same reaction to The Renassiance and that is "there's not a fucking thing out of place on this record."

Tribe understands 'vibe' more than any other artist in hip-hop.

I'm surprised to see a few complaints above.

De La, Common, and now Tribe.

Unbelievable work from our legends.

Thankfully, they didn't do the cheap digipak with no booklet thing.

That's what it cost at Best Buy. Couldn't believe how sad the CD section looked there, first time buying a CD there in years. All the album lyrics are in the notes.

239. "It is okay....definitely a 'cool vibes' type of album"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Not one track gets me hyped...gives me that 'screw face', hard neck snap, big bop while walking down the street, super charged up while driving in traffic. It is definitely a chill vibe type of album and it's cool.

This album reminds me that as the artists I consider 'classic' get older, their sound evolve and won't hit as hard as when they were newer on the scene needing something to prove. I am feeling Q-tip's 'The Renaissance' more than this Tribe album....and it is not necessarily a bad thing....it just is what it is.

De La/Common's newer album is also in the chill vibe category. Not one track is going to have me jumpin' in the air, wavin' my hands, losing my shit. Just minimal funk groove and witty word play. And that's........cool. I guess as men in their 40's, they can't be continuously doing that hype shit. Even though when Busta jumps on a track, that dude brings the energy, and the contrast is especially glaring on this new Tribe album.

Tribe's album will get play as background music to reading or chores around the house. I was hoping the collaborations could've had a more profound effect the same way Brand Nubian, or L.O.N.S. did back in the day...because there are some A+ guests on here. Everyone just did okay....maybe I need a few more spins and should just let the album grow some more.

241. "yes....it does"
In response to Reply # 240


  

          

I have a hard time coming to terms with it...but yes. I'm a fan of 90's boom bap and when my favorite artists come with those 'quiet storm' instrumentals, it reminds me of getting older and needing to switch up.

But tracks in the vein of Kendrick's "Alright","King Kunta", J. Cole's "Firing Squad" (...where even Wacka Flocka snaps off on), or Drake's "One Dance" is all I ask for. Tracks that get you bouncing or moving.....this Tribe album doesn't do it. Outside of the first track, I can't see this album being performed live where the crowd gets going. They would have to refer to the older stuff in the catalogue. The production is still top notch and has cool groovy vibes....but even though I am older, I still would like to throw my hands up to a new song that is not in their 'classics' catalogue.

In response to Reply # 242


  

          

Well, not exactly. Almost. It is cool. Definitely adds a bop to my step and Cons and Busta bring it. I feel it is almost there, but should be more. The way Busta comes, it doesn't match the track. The rambunctious energy over something chill. I think this might be the main problem for me. Mobius is still dope though.

When the beat switch during Consequence's verse and you here the bass line groove, you feel/know the dungeon dragon is about to rip shit and of course, Busta does in usual fashion.

Nothing wrong with it not being your cup of tea, but Tribe basically gave us the Hip Hop version of Sly Stone's There's A Riot Goin' On with this album.

the way they all go back and forth and rap certain parts in harmony...DAMN, it almost makes me cry that Phife is not here to see how his fans are reacting to this album.

I'm at the point where I'm kind of trying to see if I can get bored of it haha. Playing it on loop at work, on the ride to/from work, at home.

It's not happening.

The only thing that's happening is what I consider my favorite songs may change from day to day, but I'm not skipping anything. Not even close to skipping anything.

I don't like the beat anymore because its just a loop. ALC didn't FLIP IT ENOUGH!
