    A very messy album filled with ideas not thoroughly conceived. There are some tracks that hit hard like In the A and Shoes for Running but most of these songs are overdone and lost in electronic experimental nonsense. This is far bellow my expectations :(

    It's not as scintillating as we've come to expect from the OutKast camp, but plenty of fun nonetheless. [Mar 2013, p.67]

    Despite the heterogeneous nature of the album as a whole, Patton is never out of his depth, even when paired with unusual collaborators.

    Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors has a much more electronic feel to it, with a plethora of synthesizers. The brassy street thump of past Big Boi releases is still present, it's just more centralized.
