It's funny this thread should pop up now cos i've been bumping "Midnight Marauders" like crazy for the last few weeks. This last month i've gone back into my collection picking out all the old-school shit, plus i've been purchasing albums I missed the first time round too.

A Tribe Called Quest are undoubtably one of the best groups in hip hop.....FACT.

The Low End Theory, Midnight Marauders, Beats Rhymes And Life, The Love Movement albums i listen to often. Phife is a better mc to me than QTip but both of them have good chemistry and they're legends. I don't listen to their first album that much but Bonita Applebum is a classic. I wish Phife had done some more solo albums. His solo album Ventilation was pretty good. Does anybody have Tribe's videos dvd? I got a copy of it and i watch their old videos sometimes. Check The Rhyme, Hot Sex On A Platter, Electric Relaxation, Bonita Applebum, We've Got Jazz are my favorite videos by them. Hot Sex On A Platter isn't on the videos dvd i have but i wish it was.

Midnight Marauders is probably in my top three. It's definitely better than The Low End Theory.

I prefer Tip (even though 8 Million Stories is one of my favourite songs). I'm really not sure which one I like better out of Low End and Midnight but they are both classics to me. I've listened to Low End more so I guess I enjoy it a bit more when I listen.

i consider Low End Theory to be a flawless album. I put it number 2 in the all time greatest rap records (just below Illmatic). Midnight Mauraders is also a classic, love that record, but for me it doesn't get any better than low end theory. the album starts out perfectly, ends perfectly, and doesn't miss a beat in between. got nothing but love for tribe

btw for those of you that missed q-tip's solo album Kamaal The Abstract, you should check it out if you have an open mind, it's some beautiful shit

I used to rate Low End highest, but now prefer Midnight Marauders, maybe just cos I overplayed Low End.

The first three are all incredible 5* albums though. Beats, Rhymes & Life had some great tracks, but also had some poor cheesy ones. Didn't like Love Movement at all.

Would have loved it if they'd brought their reunion tour over to the UK.

Tribe Called Quest is great, Award Tour is one of the best songs ever (followed by Check the Rhime, Scenario, Scenario Remix, etc.)
