On August 27, 1996, ATLiens was released. If Southernplayalisitccadillacmuzik put Outkast on the map, then this album put them on a different planet. It still had that oh-so-solid Organized Noize production, but Big and Dre's otherworldly lyrical concepts were starting to stretch out, as was their almost-perfect attention to detail that eventually rose up fully formed on Aquemini. Its a perfect bridge between their beginning and their future, and damn its a sturdy one. If its been a minute, go back now and give it a re-listen. You won't be disappointed.
To celebrate the release of this classic, we at Outkast.com have come up with some of the best moments from the album. Enjoy and if you don't own it yet, buy ATLiens in the official Outkast store now.
