The Love Movement [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Continuing with the subdued, mature stylistic flow of Beats, Rhymes and Life, The Love Movement, the fifth album from A Tribe Called Quest, is the group's subtlest album yet -- which may just be a polite way for saying it's a little monotonous. Throughout the record, Tribe mines the same jazz-flavored, R&B-fueled beats that were the hallmark of Beats. Although the "love" concept provides a thematic cohesion to the album -- almost all of the songs are about love, in one way or another -- the overall effect is quite similar to its immediate predecessor: the music is enthralling for a while, but soon it all sounds a little too familiar. Part of the problem is ...

Part of the problem is that Tribe functions on a cerebral level, a point made painfully clear by Busta Rhymes' and Redman's roaring, visceral cameos on "Steppin' It Up." On their own, Tribe favors craft over raw skills. That means there are plenty of pleasures to be had from careful listening, but Tribe has reached a point where it's easier to admire the Ummah's stylish production and the subtle rhymes of Q-Tip and Phife than it is to outright love them, which is ironic for an album bearing the title The Love Movement.

    THE FINAL GOODBYE

    TCQ IS ONE OF THE LAST TRUE OLD SCHOOL ACTS..NOW IT'S ALL HIP-HOP AND NO RAPS WITH THE BEATS AND RYHMES OF THE OLD SCHOOL. THE LOVE MOVEMENT BRINGS THE WHOLE SHOW TO THE TABLE, AND THE REMIXS OF OLD HITS AND NEW SONGS LIKE 'DA BOOTY' HAVE GIVEN THIS CD THE FLAVA OF THE OLD SCHOOL IN 2000

    This album is a CLASSIC . . .

    Although coming with a different sound on this album, the Tribe has once again come through on their final album. The neo-jazz sound that is showcased on this album (partially due to the hip hop artists' increasing difficulties in acquiring sample clearances) is ahead of its time on this album, which alienated many listeners at first. However, anyone with an ear to many of the artists at the forefront of today's hip hop underground are sure to hear the Tribe's influence. These groups includes such artists as Slum Village, Jay Dee, and the new works of groups such as De La Soul and Common's last work. A true classic several years ahead of its time.

    Poor, Poor Tribe

    This being the last Tribe album really got to me. I've been a fan of theirs since the ''Bonita Applebum'' days: to see them leave like that messed me up. But tracks like ''Find a Way'', ''His Name is Mutty Ranks'', ''Booty'', and the track with Mos Def bring back that feeling somewhat.

    It's so hard to say goodbye.

    When i found out that this would be ATCQ's last album i felt as though i lost a best friend. ATCQ has meant so much too me as far as my first true hip hop experience to the examples of realness they've shown for almost a decade. It's clear that ATCQ feels that although there may be creative differences between members, they should go out on top. And they did. This album was already typical Tribe but to add the bonus tracks to it made it a classic. I personally haven't been able to find the 'Scenerio' remix for years and now i have it on CD! Also check out 'Start it up', 'Steppin it up', and 'Love'. Infinite love to Q-tip, Phife and Ali Shaheed. You were true pioneers and will never be forgotten. You may be gone as a whole but I wish you love and all the best in your personal ventures. Your contribution to hip hop can not be measured.
