  • The narrative of two inner city youths on a pilgrimage across the U.S./Mexican border framing "I Left My Wallet In El Segundo," is a nice guiding metaphor for the door-opening, border-crossing effects PEOPLE'S INSTINCTIVE TRAVELS had on '80s Nuyorcentric hip-hop culture. As the title suggests, b-boys of the Native Tongues era found themselves traveling far from hip-hop's familiar stomping grounds (literally and musically) in order to reach the plane where Zulu Nation elders Red Alert and Afrika Bambataa witnessed it's birth.
  • ATCQ later stripped their sound down to bare necessities in order to rebuild it, but their debut is as eclectic as the claim-checks adorning your suitcase after a world tour. Accordingly, Tribe expand hip-hop's framework to make room for the continental flavor of "Luck Of Lucien," the Mariachi flavor of "El Segundo," the vibes/sitar hook of "Bonita Applebum" and of course a powerful injection of jazz and soul. More important than the jazz records they sampled, however, was Tribe's resurrection of jazz's spontaneity, play and improvisation, not to mention its bohemian world-view. To paraphrase "Rhythm;" "Look what we did; removed the crust from the third eyelid."
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly - "...you'll be rewarded if you listen to it..." - Rating: A-

Mojo (Publisher) (6/00, p.125) - "...TCQ's freestyle jazz-poetry tackles the big issues - diet, tourism, sex and the perils of public lice."

Pitchfork (Website) - "[The album] is more than a nostalgia artifact. It's a worthy listen, not because of what it was, but because of what it is."
