Can't see why people are so dismissive and damning of this album... great beats and interesting rap... musically nothing like Endtroducing...but hey..
Always pushing boundaries and even though not his most stand out album it's more interesting and un-stereotypical than 99% of hip hop of its time... just saying.

Better the second time I listened to it as the first time I could only remember the god awful type of rap I personally hate. Second time round I was surprised there are actually some nice tracks deeper into the album.
However still an album easily forgotten.

This album by J.S. has been unfairly marked as a throwaway...it is not. It more or less serves as a bridge-gap between his first two and last two albums. Back in 2006, after listening to three or four tracks in, I too thought, "this is bad", and traded it in without listening much further. Now, many years later, I repurchased the album just out of curiosity, and much to my delight, I found that if I reprogrammed the the album to play tracks 1, 2, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13 only, that I had a nice little eclectic E.P., something that stands much more in line with Shadow’s last two full lengths. Needless to say, “Outsider” has grown on me. Add or substitute in "This Time (I'm Going To Dub It My Way)", "Skullfuckery", "Triplicate Part 3", "Aritfact (Vocal)", and "Outsider Intro (Instrumental)" from "SYNCHSampler", and you have a worthy full-length.

This album is a contender for being the worst record created by great artists. It's head to head with Below The Waste by The Art Of Noise.

I've bought thousands of albums and 12"s over the years. In that time there have been 2 or 3 that were so bad that I actually threw them in the trash. You have to understand, I am a lover of music and it pains me to do that. Respect to the artist whether I like the music or not. But... my god.... this one was so unbearable it had to go. When I read the reviews on this one I find a lot of excuses being made and pleas to be open minded. Just because it is Shadow does not make it good. A turd laid by Shadow is still a turd. Verdict: Zero stars and contender for one of the worst albums I have ever purchased.

As a rap album, it's good. It's better than Lil Wayne or similar junk. Obviously, most listeners are not looking for rap on this album, they are looking for trip-hop. So in that respect, this album will disappoint.

Entroducing was this hypnotic downtempo sound that made you think, made you reflect on things, and made you introspect. This is more commercial and reeks of popular hip-hop. But it could do a lot worse - at least the rappers on this one have some lyrical talent.

Many have written this off unfairly and without consideration for the balance of content. Sure, half of this album (the much maligned 'hyphy' material) is absolute rubbish, there can be no denying that. This said, the other half of the album is as good as Shadow has ever been, and there is a lot of fresh stuff on here that he had never attempted to do before. Erase You in particular is a stunning track with clear, melodic vocals that suit Shadow's shifting break snippets surprisingly well. Triplicate is one of his darkest pieces ever, an oppressive and apocalyptic piece that is among the most affecting songs in his catalog. You Made It is high-grade pop music with acoustic guitar and strings... You get the idea. There is a lot of variety on here and not all of it is worthwhile but when he hits the mark he does exceedingly well.

First of all, be carefull:

This album has been criticized by many people, many times.
All reviews tend to say this album was not "Endtroducing".
And that is totally correct.
But if you hear people saying that this album has nothing to do in the Shadow discography, i can tell they are simply wrong.

If you know (a minimum)what DJ Shadow is doing and has done in his career, you'll clearly understand why he has composed "The Outsider".
The only people who doesn't like it are people who have only listenned to "Endtroducing" or more generally, all instrumental hip-hop releases he has produced over the years.
DJ Shadow comes from hip-hop. It's like that, weither you like it or not.

"The Outsider" confirmes Shadow's producing talents, it embraces lots of musical genres, with passion and greatness.
Recommended!
