Overview

For those who haven't discovered that A Tribe Called Quest made several of the best LPs in hip-hop history, Anthology is a perfect way to encapsulate the trio's decade-long career into one manageable portion. All of their best and biggest songs are here, from the early neglected joint "Luck of Lucien" to classic jazz-rap from The Low End Theory like "Jazz (We've Got)," and their 45-rpm peak with "Award Tour," all the way to their last big hit, "Find a Way," from 1998's The Love Movement. Yes, anyone who enjoys hip-hop needs to own at least Midnight Marauders and The Low End Theory, but Anthology succeeds in delivering all the highest points from a great hip-hop group's career. The collection also includes the first solo track from Q-Tip, 1999's "Vivrant Thing."

If you listen to ATCQ this is a must have, it has just about every tribe song that was a hit. I listen to this CD every day thats how good it is.

When you're little, you don't really understand everything that artists were talking about. I bobbed my head cause my big brother bobbed his head. I said I liked this song cause he said he liked this song. I was listening to 92.3 Jamz (Chicago radio station) and they were playing all old school hip-hop. I started reciting the words to some of these songs, thinking "Man, that was clever. He said that. She did that!" and just went on an old-school shopping spree. I bought this cd a couple of weeks ago with the hope of continuing where 92 Jamz left off in addition to being tired of commercial hip-hop which has no point, I bought this anthology and realized my brother had good taste! I love it! From the "n" word song to "Benita Applebum", it was just hot.

This has already become one of my favorites! It's as if Tribe combined all five previous records into one! On top of all that, everybody's favorite Tribe song is here: ''Check the Rhime'', ''Electric Relaxation'', ''Scenario'', ''Sucka N***a'', ''Award Tour'', and on and on. But i do have one complaint: the fact that ''Vivrant Thing'' was included when it just isn't a Tribe anthem. They just did that to sell records. But it's excusable, since the rest of the album is masterful from start to finish!!!!!
