Is maith Liom – Big Boi’s new album

Been listening to this loads since I got it yesterday. Quality. Absolutely banging.

I first heard Outkast when i got their debut Southerplayalisticadillacmusic shortly after it first came out in 94, it was one of those big albums that had a huge effect on me, as back in those days before downloads and the internet and when pocket money meant I could only get a new tape every few months, you tended to listen to every album like a million times.

Can’t believe its been 16 years (yikes) and after an increasingly inventive and successful career Big Boi is back with an even better album and he’s still only 35. It leans heavily towards an 80s synth-funk sound with saucy Southern guitar licks. Nice.
