5 stars This is the most complex Consider The Source album yet. The compositions are the key to this masterpiece. Coming right off the success of the previous album, Are You Watching Closely, That's What's Up provides us with more muilt-bar riffs and unusual rhythms. Extended intros build the mood for tracks like "Abdiel" and "Complex Complex," and the signature middle eastern funk sound is ever present. The album reaches it's peak at the untitled track 5 (incorrectly labeled as "Ol' Chomper" above) which is the band's most epic track to date. It's starts off slow and wailing then quickly builds energy to becoming a bouncing and screaming feel-good song; just when you think it is winding down, the mood changes to cool and then funky before the climactic breakdown which demonstrates every member's virtuosity. Finally the tune ends with a triumphant decrescendo. This is an album that deserves careful listening over and over again.
