    Dungeon Family: Big Boi & Dre, Cee-Lo, Big Gipp, Khujo & T-Mo, Witchdoctor, Back-Bone, Cool Breeze.
    As part of the Outkast posse, this 14-strong southern hip-hop collective is guaranteed a certain amount of attention, but on EVEN IN DARKNESS they show that they've got enough talent and individuality to transcend the attendant hype. Like Outkast, the Dungeon Family makes use of intensely funky production and loopy, good-natured, decidedly non-gangsta humor a la P-Funk. But this isn't just Outkast, Jr. at work; the combined talents of Big Boi, cult hero Cee-Lo, Backbone, and all the rest make this a distinctive effort. With an inventive production sensibility that bears echoes not just of Outkast and P-Funk, but even of Prince, and a truly collective approach wherein the whole is even greater than the already-impressive sum of its parts, EVEN IN DARKNESS is accessible but sophisticated, fun but substantive, and one of the hip-hop highlights of 2001.

    Vibe (p.76) - "[I]t's full of impressive little victories: Cee Lo mischievously rapping on 'Follow the Light'...and a breathtaking Andre 3000 doo-wop-ing his way through 'Rollin'....It's a crucial document of unity."
    Mojo (Publisher) (1/02, p.90) - "...the hip-hop generation's Parliament Funkadelic....[consumes] all past music and [spits] it out as a new whole..."
    NME (Magazine) (1/5/02, p.30) - 8 out of 10 - "...If ever there was a present-time equivalent to George Clinton's Parliament/Funkadelic and the groove power, soulful affirmations and subversive it is..."
