🎵 How Good Are They Really 🎵 De La Soul

3FH&R without the skits is like a car without wheels. There’s a whole narrative mixed into the album. Can’t go on the proper journey without them.

For sure. That tends to be my approach unless a debut isn’t well-regarded. But in this case it seems to be the most popular so the choice was clear.

This is so good. Haven’t listened to Buhloone Mindstate in years. Having a wonderful time!

Have always loved the run of I Am I Be, In the Woods and Breakadawn. I think it’s the album of theirs that I have listened to most.

Can’t say I miss the era of every rap album being over an hour though

I do. I always feel cheated when an album is under 45 minutes haha

Can’t think of many hip-hop acts with such a strong 4 album run, and such a variety of opinions on what the best one is. De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Gang Starr…

Think literally the only opening four album run that competes with De La is Outkast tbh

Soooo….other than the 30 seconds chopped off ‘Cool Breeze…’, has anyone noticed anything glaring in terms of edits yet? Have to confess it’s been so long since I’ve listened to the original album that nothing’s sticking out for me, but I’ve seen a few people having a bit of a grumble on Twitter and in various comments sections.

I’m the same, but I never listened to them anywhere near as much as I should have, so I can’t hear anything glaringly obvious and i’m almost definitely missing the subtle changes. I assume the most of the changes are on the first two records…?
