A Tribe Called Quest Albums

''People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm'' is the debut album by the alternative hip hop group A Tribe Called Quest, released April 17, 1990 (see 1990 in music) on Jive Records. Though the album was well-received critically, it had little mainstream appeal. The album did earn the band a devoted following, however, within the alternative hip hop community. ''People's Instinctive Travels'' was praised for its lyrical inventiveness and bizarre sense of humor, mixed with socially aware and literate message tracks. The record was given the perfect rating of 5 in The Source in 1990. It is one of three A Tribe Called Quest albums included in The Source's 100 Best Rap Albums. It also was certified gold by the RIAA on January 17, 1996.

Critical reviews were generally positive, but many felt that the group's effort was immature and unfocused. John Bush of allmusic writes "Tribe perhaps experimented too much on their debut, but they succeeded at much of it, certainly enough to show much promise as a new decade dawned".
