Pitchfork
Outkast have never made the same album twiceand each new one requires that you go to the mountain your own damn self. Most contemporary rap albums are indigestible because they’re too damn long, but Big Boi and Andre 3000’s full-lengths require effort […]

HIPHOPDX
If you think in 5 years this album won’t be held in the same esteem as certified classics ATLiens and Aquemini then you’re sadly mistaken. Only the infinitely talented duo known as Outkast could manage to exceed the ridiculous expectations for this opus. […]

NME
If the only charge you can level at ‘Idlewild’ is that it’s a bit long and uneven and self-indulgent… well hello, this is their jazz album! That’s what jazz is like! […]
