Acid Raindrops is the go to recommendation for it.

Tales Of Kidd Drunkadelic and Montego Slay are two of my favorites from it. The whole album is worth listening to though.

I’ve heard OST and it’s number 4 to me.

With that said, Stankonia should EASILY be number 1 but is weighed down by dumb skits and a few terrible songs.

".. mothafuckas."

"Girl you got some pretty hay-ah"

"Cruisin' in the ATL" as a whole.

Etc. They all crack me up. They're stupid funny to me. There's prolly a little nostalgia mixed in for me too, admittedly, cuz me and my friends in HS used to relay the lines from all those skits ad nauseum. But I still laugh out loud when I hear them today.

Word re: a couple pretty bad songs, tho.

I think the skits mixed with the weak songs drop the album as a whole to me because it seems so spotty.

Aquemini is the album that has GOAT interludes to me.

coming into it i thought Stankonia is THE album you must have from these. hands down.

after giving all of these another spin i dont know. it is the one im getting but partly because two others dont come out until later.

based on how much i think i would listen to the songs on the albums here is my list.

Big Boi
OST
Stankonia
Muddy Waters

my contradictory analysis:
OST and Muddy Waters are the most consistent albums from these 4. OST has songs that i love while Muddy Waters is over all great but i cant name one song on it.

Stankonia has the songs i love the most, but theres not that many of them. it has the lowest lows even though i wouldnt necessarily say any song is straight up bad. i do feel it has grown on me more since the last time i heard it. i pretty much only love the singles though and thats usually not the case for me.

big boi has some low points but it actually has a lot of songs that i love. more songs that i love than any of the other 3 albums.

i kind of feel like if i scored these track by track OST would win, then Muddy Waters, followed by Big Boi then Stankonia. yet Big Boi and Stankonia are the two i want the most.

i might give these another listen next week and actually score them to see how they stack up.

I voted Stankonia by reflex but I think if I were to listen to Stank and SLLF back to back with "fresh" ears I would probably find that I like Big Boi's album more, on balance, than I do OutKast's.

And I think you nailed it when you said Stank has the songs you love most/the highest highs, with Big a close 2nd. And I also agree that Stank doesn't have outright *bad* songs, just a couple of uncharacteristic misfires.

And again I'm with you re: OST and Redman being the most front to back consistent, even if the "highs" aren't as high on those 2 as Big and OutKast.

I realize I'm not adding much here lol. But I guess I'll rank like this:

OutKast
Big Boi
(^those two can maybe be flipped if I go and listen this wknd, will report back if I do)
Redman
PUtS

But they're all good to great.

The chances of getting another special edition vinyl of that album is far lower than the others.

I think PUTS will probably hit the sales rack of VMP so you might be able to swoop around and grab that later.

going with stankonia. i mostly wanted to revisit to get an idea if i want to renew as this is my last month. since theyre doing mamas gun next month im pretty sure im at least getting that. i wasnt too sure about big boi but i think i do want it too. they raised their prices so im still not sure if i will get either of those two.

i figured if i did renew for 3 months or longer muddy waters and ost would be potential records i will swap for if i dont like the monthly picks starting in january.

ost did get a fatbeats re-release announced on friday so i think i wil probably go with that version if it doesnt sell out.

They only make a certain about of any given album. Then they stop making it. It's out of print. They become rare. Record companies often don't want to invest in it again (sometimes they do), and there's lots different vinyl companies and/or record stores that will do a pressing of it and re-release the vinyl.

And not only that but you've seen re-releases your whole life "20 year anniversary edition," "Deluxe edition" those are re-releases.

I wasn't aware of the company either until this post. Here's a link to the company's website.

i didnt really want to focus too much on VMP. i just mentioned it because that's the only real connection these 4 albums have.

Absolutely love that album, top 5 of the decade. I was also a huge fan of Speakerboxxx (even prefer that one over Stankonia too).

to pivot, I think cohesively between SLLF and Vicious Lies, Big had a good album. But as separate projects, too much filler.

I loved that damn Big Grams album though
