Outkast : So Fresh, So Clean

Genius.

It's a testament to the towering achievement that is OutKast's brilliant 'Stankonia' LP that the only criticisms one can throw at them are of the niggling, petty variety. Such as, why release this gorgeous, squelchy lurch of phuture-phunk when 'We Luv Deez Hoez' would make a braver, funnier single release? And doesn't 'So Fresh, So Clean' sound a little aimless without the chilling crack-whore skit 'I'm Cool' preceding it, as it does on the album? And will the video be as funny as the talking-hound dog jamboree that accompanied 'Ms Jackson'? Otherwise, well, you know... Genius. It feels redundant even saying it.
