1994: Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik
1996: ATLiens
1998: Aquemini
2000: Stankonia
2003: Speakerboxxx/The Love Below

The greatest streak of albums in hip hop.



nah, JayZ had a greater run

1996 Reasonable Doubt
1997 In My Lifetime vol 1
1998 Hard Knock Life vol 2
1999 Life and Times of S.Carter vol 3
2000 Dynasty Roc LaFamilia
2001 The Blueprint
2002 Blueprint 2
2003 The Black Album


Reasonable Doubt and Jay Z Never understood the hype on this talentless rubbish rapper. Samples that are so obvious I could come up with something much better by using my Music Collection.

When you have a hard time naming an artist's masterpiece, and they arrived all in a row, I would say the blessing went to Stevie Wonder.

Powerlight is pretty solid. I never listened to Raise but PL felt like EWF perfectly translated to the 80s.
Powerlight was cool, but by then i couldnt deal with not hearing Al McKay's guitar work bless their sound anymore..."Side By Side" and "Something Special" werr dope, but the rest was disappointing..."Miracles" was hideous... then after the Powerlight lp, Electric Universe completely bombed...Philip Bailey said he didnt even like the music anymore after Charles Stepney died, and Al McKay left

Powerlight is the first EW&F album that I was disappointed with.I like the two singles ("Fall In Love With Me" and "Side By Side"),but the rest of the album falls flat.Raise is a great album,but this time around,the music was starting to sound formulaic and stale.

The funny thing is...I actually like Electric Universe.It's a bolder,more experimental sound for EW&F.Maurice said that,by 1983,he was simply bored with R&B music and wanted to branch out a bit.Unfortunately,their audience just wasn't ready for it.

IMO, "Side By Side" was their last great song. I didnt connect with the rest of the album. I liked the first two singles from "Touch the World" but they ran out of gas after "Raise".

I love Touch The World.I think it was a perfect comeback album.One great tune after another...."Here Today And Gone Tomorrow" is an absolute gem....."Every Now And Then" should have been a single.I think the pop and adult contemporary audiences would have loved that one...."Money Tight" and "Victim Of The Modern Heart" are top-notch songs,too.Really,there's not a bad song anywhere on this album.

Madonna certainly has a great catalog.When she released True Blue,that's when I really began to take her seriously."Live To Tell" is the song that made me a fan.

No offense but I just didn’t dig the Jacksons albums that much post J5 I always considered that singles oriented material vs his solo efforts having more of a theme based approach.

You should give them a chance to those three albums.

Their 1976 self-titled album and the 1978 Destiny album are superb music I love those two albums.

i LOVE Money Tight...System Of Survival, Here Today Gone Tomorrow, and Thinking Of You were really good songs, too... "Touch The World" is one of their best post golden era albums..."Illumination" was pretty good too... but nothing like the annual greatness (albums AND tours) of 1973 - 1981...they set such a high standard they couldnt live up to it for years, even though there were some pretty good songs scattered through those post 1983 albums...certain members of the group that created and performed those magical melodies and rhythms were no longer there, and it showed

Also .....

Just as an aside....(slightly off topic)...


The Isley Brothers had the longest chart run of anybody I can think of...

From their first chart hit --"Shout ", in 1959,

to "Just Came here to Chill", in 2006...


Is there anybody else in Pop , Rock or R&B , that had that kind of chart longevity?


That said, I thought that their strongest run was from the late 60's ("It's Your Thing")

to the mid 80's ("Smooth Sailing")...

I actually loved Powerlight. The only songs I didn't care for on it was Freedom Of Choice which

was obvious filler and Spread Your Love which was stale. Overlooked songs on the album were Straight From The Heart, Speed Of Love, and Something Special. I understand where you were coming from with Electric Universe as EWF and the Commodores were losing steam and fans(especially the latter without Lionel) to bands who transitioned to more synth oriented funk like Cameo, Barkays, Zapp, Lakeside, Midnight Star, and ConFunkShun. Electric Universe was a nice try but like you stated fans just weren't accepting it from EWF. The album for me was just so so. They hit it out the park with Magnetic, Moonwalk, and Electirc Nation. The ballads Could It Be Right and We're Living In Our Own Time were probably their worse ever up to that point. Getting back to RJ's point. He is spot own about Al McKay but I got to give it up to Roland Bautista. His guitar work kicked ass on Raise. If you didn't like probably their most rock oriented song Changing Times you just didn't have a pulse. Bautista kicked ass on it and You're A Winner. I'm actually surprised the label didn't try to push this out as a final single from the album. I think it would have went over well with the pop/rock audience. To me they accomplished on this album more of what Maurice was trying to accomplish on Electric Nation. One thing Electric Nation did was introduce EWF fans to Verdine White's legendary Lion King perm. lol He hasn't changed since.
