The perfect counterfoil to Big Boi's broadcast news, Andre 3000's show The Love Below shifts the focus into more personal territory, sculpting a bewitching smooth soul celebration of love. Nostalgic orchestral jazz croons ("Love Hater") are spiced up with searing Funkadelic guitar solos that become full blown Parliament style rock jams ("Happy Valentine's Day", "Roses" and "Dracula's Wedding") that eventually erupt into the delirious Motown pastiche of "Hey Ya!" Later, skittering drum 'n bass flavoured electro-booty shakes ("Spread", "She Lives in My Lap") morph and reappear, recasting "My Favourite Things" into an elegiac lover's rap spliced by his 'n hers spoken word sketches that praise both "God" and underwear ("Where are My Panties")!
Exchanging the lewd lowest common denominator bump 'n grind bedroom jams for straightforward sensitive love ballads ("Pink & Blue", "She's Alive"), Andre seduces with his many flavoured message of love. As the yawning old school soul ("Prototype") and country-folk flavoured "Take off Your Cool" (featuring Norah Jones) prove, the revolution may have been subsumed by its own te-LIE-vised commercialisation, but Outkast are bringing back the real.
