Falling somewhere between Parliament/ Funkadelic and hardcore hip-hop, Atlanta-based supergroup Dungeon Family—which includes members of OutKast, Goodie Mob, and Coolbreeze— makes its debut

with Even in Darkness. OutKast's Andre 3000 and Goodie Mob's Cee-Lo and Big Gipp get things rolling with "Trans DF Express," the album's lead single. The group scores major points for "Six Minutes," which pays homage to the classic posse cut, deftly referencing Doug E. Fresh and the Get Fresh Crew's "The Show." Equally impressive is "What Iz Rap" (an eternal musical question, if there ever was one). With in-house producers Organized Noize behind the boards, Even in Darkness is one wild ride.—RH
