Great thread, nice takeover deej, you’ve basically channeled most of my thoughts on Quik.

I got Rhythm-al-ism at a Sam Goody after reading the review in The Source in 98. iirc it got 4 of 5 mics, which mattered back then or something. I bought that album + Twista & the Speedknot Mobstaz 'Mobstability" at the same time and those two albums basically sound-tracked my junior/senior years of high school.

Rhythm-al-ism is a perfect album, a complete joy to listen to. As reverend stated; "listening to Rhythm-al-ism on headphones was a revelation and a half." This is what’s given it such a long shelf life imo. The songs are immediate (especially the front end), which hooked me from day one, but as I aged and began to appreciate the more intricate qualities of music production/sound is when this album really opened up to me. Sitting just ahead of Voodoo and Superunknown; it’s the most pure sounding album I’ve ever owned, I still use it test new headphones/speakers. Listen to We Still Party, there’s like 25+ layers in there, all blended seamlessly. The point xpost about Organized Noize is an interesting one, I’ve always thought their strength is in the way they layer their beats similarly to Quik. It lends well to repeat listens, there’s always something new to discover and appreciate.

Some highlights:
The bass-lines.
El Debarges fluttering vocals throughout Hand in Hand
Every single one of AMG’s verses.
The poignancy and triumph of Youz A Ganxta.
The random reggae smokers ballad.
The family feel to the whole affair epitomized by the tracks Medley For A “V” and Get 2getha Again.
The humor/story-telling on I Useta Know Her.
The stellar PSA style intro.
The sexy smoov of the Whatever U Do –Thinking ‘Bout U – El’s Interlude trifecta
The album cover
The Eddie Hazel-esque guitar work on the final track (Medley For a “V” Reprise)

As a teen I would usually pass over tracks like Whatever U Do, but now I love it. Specifically the second half when the vocals drop out for a while and we’re left with this smooth jazz cut slathered with aural textures (flute!), then El Debarge comes back in to add the perfect touch and bring the track home.

I’ve followed everything he’s done for some time and he ‘s really the only musician I stan for. I could probably go on about all his albums like this, but Rhythm-al-ism is truly special to me, my love for the music plus all the memories tied to it make it such.

Tldr. Probably shoulda chopped that up into 20 posts like deej.

Nah, s'good post. I've been playing Rhythm-al-ism non-stop since people were enthusing about it in the rap poll thread. You've pretty much nailed it there, but yeah it's so enjoyable how there's always something new to pick up on with every listen. I'll definitely be voting for it now.

lol: And I was listening to Jack Johnson. The dude was hard-- a lot less messy than John Mayer, who can't play music.

Love the bit about recording Street Gospel in his homies garage and all that, love how he talks about how good that record sounds cos it really is one of the best sounding rap albums, def his best (rhythmalism close behind)
