Top Ten Albums of the Decade: 10

10. Outkast, Stankonia (2000)

It seems like such a distant memory when Outkast were not only on the precipice of what music was about to become, but what it was. I guess, in a way, both were true--and false. None the less, Stankonia remains the obvious watershed moment for a duo that could not have been more ambitious, and should have probably been less gigantic. Perfect dashes of what became standard Southern Rap, Soul, Funk and some oddly delivered Pop, Stankonia was at its most curious when it wasn't paying attention to what it was doing; because then you were able to see how effortless it all was.
