Gutter Rainbows is the fourth studio album by American hip hop artist Talib Kweli. The album was released in 2011, by Blacksmith Music and Javotti Media. 

“The beats on Gutter Rainbows are tight-enough neo-soul by committee-- 13 producers handle 14 tracks -- and most of it sounds like faintly modernized versions of Rawkus-circa-2002 boom-bap, with the occasional outlier in the form of a post-"Hello Brooklyn" old-school banger (Khrysis' "I'm on One") or atmospheric synthesizer dirge (Blaq Toven's "How You Love Me"). But isolating the beats from the rapper seems futile; this is Kweli's most comfortable turf, and he clicks with it as an MC who works like an ensemble cast member. When it hits on all cylinders-- the Ski Beatz-produced gospel-soul piano avalanche of "Cold Rain" being the best of several highlights-- it's hard to blame him for sticking to what he knows.” - Pitchfork
