Black Thought is so damn dope. Shame that this won't get checked like Em and Drake's album did; The Roots is ill as hell.

I'll have to give this a full rotation, but it's looking good with the Blu, Phonte and John Legend features. The production so far's been on point, you can hear ?uestlove's drumming mastery all over the tracks. The album seems more mellow in sound than their previous releases, which is a welcomed surprise.

EDIT: Dope a.ss album.

Yeah, you really didn't, I'll not bother checking back even if you do now as you're just an attention wh0ore. Too early to review an album anyway, give it a lot of spins first, noone cares for the first review everyone wants the best one.

Does this have a single? Def Jam really doesn't give two f**ks about anybody not named Rihanna or Jeezy I see

I guess even if it did I still wouldn't hear it on the radio around here regardless

The Roots do it again. They've consistently proven to be one of the only hip-hop acts that is continually growing, I'm tempted to use the term "getting better over time" but won't because The Roots are classic from where they started to where they are now. Unlike anything else in hip-hop - it's truly extraordinary. Simply put they do not get the credit they deserve for being such a phenomenal music group. 5/5

There's never a question of if a Roots album will be exceptional.

They're the backbone of hip hop.

I'd love to see the explainations from anyone who left less than 4 mics.

Care to enlighten me?

Another superb album from The Roots. Creative and progressive production, real-life themes and tight, clever lyrics throughout the whole album. Can't wait to go buy the retail on Tuesday (even after downloading I ALWAYS gotta support great artists and music).

On the real, when it's all said and done, The Roots will probably have the best, most consistent catalog in hip-hop--you'll actually be able to listen to every one of their albums in a row all the way through without skipping songs or clowning any of them for sounding wack or out of date. These cats are the truth.

Best album out this year, wanted more at first, but re-listend to the album about 5-6 times and its really a classic. not a boxden classic, a REAL CLASSIC, its perfect, every track is mastered perfect. Its short but sweet.

I love the album.

Although I do wish it was all Black Thought on the mic instead of the other artists. When it's a short album, i'd much rather hear him then the guests and other guys.
