After forever changing rap music as one half of OutKast, Big Boi took a quieter approach with his solo debut, Sir Lucious Left Foot. That record proved less ambitious than anything in the OutKast oeuvre, but every bit as refined. The follow-up, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, reverses that formula. The beats still thump and Big is snapping raps as crisply as he ever has, though all of this is buried under a pile of mostly failed experiments in indie crossover. Phantogram and Little Dragon sprinkle pixie dust vocals in at inopportune moments; Wavves plops pop-punk riffs over the too on-the-nose bid for a sneaker commercial, "Shoes for Running"; and blog rap darlings like A$AP Rocky and Theophilus London turn up for seemingly no other reason than hoping their niche buzz rubs off. It'd be unfair to expect Big Boi to still be setting trends this late in his career, but it's a little disenchanting to hear him so blatantly chasing them.
