Andre 3000 - New Blue Sun

Welp. His first solo record is out. It's experimental flute music. The shortest song is 3 minutes but most go well beyond that, topping out at 17 minutes.

Here is the actual track list.

  1. "I Swear, I Really Wanted to Make a "Rap" Album but This Is Literally the Way the Wind Blew Me This Time"
  2. "The Slang Word P(*)ssy Rolls Off the Tongue with Far Better Ease Than the Proper Word Vagina . Do You Agree?"
  3. "That Night in Hawaii When I Turned into a Panther and Started Making These Low Register Purring Tones That I Couldn't Control ... Shit Was Wild"
  4. "BuyPoloDisorder's Daughter Wears a 3000® Button Down Embroidered"
  5. "Ninety Three 'Til Infinity and Beyoncé"
  6. "Ghandi, Dalai Lama, Your Lord & Savior J.C. / Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, and John Wayne Gacy"
  7. "Ants to You, Gods to Who?"
  8. "Dreams Once Buried Beneath the Dungeon Floor Slowly Sprout into Undying Gardens"


I.... I don't even know what to say about this.

I was never a fan of Outkast or Andre3000.


With that said, i like this music MUCH better than anything Outkast or Andre300 has ever done.

I like this album the same way i like Kamasutra (Prince).

I connect with it on a spiritual level.

The Love Below is one of my favourite albums ever.

I've not listened to this yet. I'm intrigued.

Is it a kind of Jazz album?

I saw it's 87 minutes. It might struggle to hold my attention.

It's all instrumental, so.... hunker down.

Simply the most pretentious gas bag of so called music I have ever heard. Every aspect of this album is an absolute joke. I pray this release is the ultimate practical joke...the song titles alone scream "look at me ...I'm clever". I would rather attend a poetry reading featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger than listen to this drivel.

God damn Andre...you shit the bed on this.

Well I scanned the album.

I'd have to agree - it's pretentious and pointless.

People have been clamouring for this, though. Every couple months he gets social media buzz for playing his flute on a subway or something. He finally gave the people what they want.

I'm interpreting this as yet another Prince retread, however.

First he ripped off 80s album cut Prince now he fast-forwarded to aloof dgaf NPGMC miser-era Prince. Color me hyped, he's done it again.

I listened to it this morning and enjoyed it. I was doing my usual Saturday lounging late in bed. I kept falling back to sleep and having the most fun and interesting dreams. cool

I knew from the start that I loved you with all my heart.

Word...it definitely has the same effect and similar properties as ASMR Music or Ambient Music...which i now listen to while sleeping...and i have very lucid and often erotic dreams while sleeping with Ambient or ASMR Music playing...i used to sleep with the tv on and have nightmares, but not anymore

I listened to some of this morning and I really dig it. I love Bill Laswell, Pharoah Sanders, Alice Coltrane and other "outside the box" stuff, so this fits right in my wheelhouse. Nice "zone out" music for relaxing or to meditate.

He's gonna Make MORE Money on this than He did by being in OutKast! ESPECIALLY when Hip-Hop Producers start Choppin" & Samplin' it! He's Playing Chess, not Checkers!
