    Favorite Track:
    Memory: I skipped school to go to the movies with my homie, and got caught by my mom with this playing in my headphones.
    Ranking: 2nd behind the low end theory, only because my favorite song Jazz is on TLET.

    Classic! That's probably my favorite ATCQ's album equally with The Low End Theory...
    My favs are "We can get down" and "Electric relaxation", but I love the whole CD tbh.
    I don't think I remember any significant memories associated with the album except of bumping this in last December, when I had that classic rap phase. I re-listened a lot of classic albums.

    Favourite track HAS to be Electric Relaxation for me. Pretty sure it's the universally lauded track on this album. Award Tour is a close second.

    I went on an ATCQ binge a few years back to and from hospital appointments and Electric Relaxation always put me in a good mood.

    My ranking of it would be third behind my personal favourite PITAPOR and TLET.

    As good as this album is, it would have to be my third favourite album from them. I actually have the same ranking as Joel :'(

    My favourite track is definitely Electric Relaxation, one of my all time favourite beats. d--- Q-Tip's production is so good. :emoji_fire:

    Haven't heard this album in a while.
    It was one of the first albums I heard, but I was too much of a Stan to appreciate it fully at the time :wow2:
