The problem with most rap and hip hop album is that they tend to sound generic and the only thing that separates the individual album from each other is on the verses.  Thus, A Tribe Called Quest new album is always a welcome phenomenon for hardcore rap and hip hop fans.  I believed that it is not a dare when you say that this group is perhaps the most talented and creative rap and hip hop act ever to grace the scene.

This act really knows how to craft good hip hop and rap songs.  For example, in “Kids,” the infusion of video game sound, one listen to good verses and imagine playing a Nintendo game.  In “Enough,” it asked “is it enough?” and you clamor for more hard rap and hip hop sounds. Perhaps, it is their creative way of telling listeners not to expect pop music from them.  They take whining to another level when they complained and sing that there are no niggers in “The Space Program.”  A unique way of lambasting the realities of life without damning the obvious.

Almost all tracks in this album are great to listen to. Yes, it  is worth the wait.  This album came nearly 20 years after their last studio album was released.  I rate this record perfect 5 stars
