Upon first impression I gotta give a big old thumbs down to the cover design team. ((TD))



Here's a nice little write up by the New York Times.

Quote
NYT
It features all four of the group’s members plus a host of guests — André 3000, Kendrick Lamar, Elton John, Jack White and Busta Rhymes...

^So Elton John and Jack White are going to be on this. we are confused

I shouldn't judge by the cover or the guest artists, I should listen first, but I can't help but be at least slightly leery about this one based on what little I know.

I'm gonna keep my fingers crossed that this record is how it needs to be . We don't need a repeat of the new De La joint . I'm hoping that this will be the perfect end to Phife's legacy . I enjoyed the Tribe documentary , but was somewhat disappointed that it was mostly a beef video . I would love to see this record perfectly caps off the Tribe in a tasteful way . I got faith in them to have created an ill album . Thanks for posting this . I've been so disconnected lately that I hadn't even heard about it .

My hopes are not too high. I wonder how much Phife is actually on it? Too many guests, even if they are decent artists, can spoil an album or is usually a red flag that a lackluster release needs extra hype to sell. We'll see.

I haven't read the article , so I don't know who all the guest spots are . I'm not sore what Elton John will bring to the table , but I did think that some of Black Milk's best work was when he got with Jack White ( even though I'm not a fan of JW ) , so I'm hopeful that him being part of this will be a plus .
