I have listened to the album from start to finish 6 times now and I can honestly say it's absolutely amazing. It gets better with every listen, so far it's earnt a 5/5 and I'm seriously thinking it could be a classic. I only tell if I'm still bumping it frequently 6 months down the line though.

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one of their albums in a row all the way through without skipping songs or clowning any of them for sounding wack or out of date.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.
^^^This

The last album to be this short and still be close to a classic for me is Be, which coincidentally is exactly 7 seconds longer than this.

And I still haven't listened to Below The Heavens, but Blu has convinced me that I am missing out. This is a great album for how damn short it is.

LOVE this album.
It's not often where I find an album that I can listen w/out skipping tracks, so that says alot.
Great album...

The intro is absolutely pointless.
Walk Alone is cool, cool chill beat, cool lyrics.
Dear God 2.0 is crazy ill, deep s**t, beat is dead on.
Radio Daze is hot, introspective s**t, beat is smooth
Now or Never is another deep a.ss song, black thought is so much better than everyone else
How I Got Over is dopeness, a feel good beat, Black Thought comes with the heat
The Day - nice chill beat, my favorite song so far prolly, hott chorus
Right On - Beat is old skool, don't really like it, not much character to it, nice lyrics as always
Do It Again - Hott a.ss beat, damn, favorite beat so far, hott short song
The Fire - Cool deep lyrics, beat isn't all that great, not a huge fan of the chorus either
Web 20/20 - Weird a.ss beat, just straight spittin on this track, not much replay value IMO
Hustla - Another weird beat, kinda indian like, cool lyrics as always, talkin about his kids, its ok


It's prolly a 3.5/5 IMO. It's a good album. It falls off towards the end. I wish they kept the smooth production throughout. And I wish it was more Black Thought and less everyone else. But it's a solid album.

I cannot stress how much you need to get that album ASAP, that should be your next download, no doubt.

I hear you but it's also good to switch it up. I mean if you look at last album it had pretty much the same amount of features, but the idea works, and it ends up sounding good as a result.
Also, you have a point about Thought appearing more, but they are affiliated with mad people that all love to do music and jam out, so what u got is Thought putting his people on famous or not and approving them not because of money or what's sure to sell but because it's real.

anything below 4 is just insanity...this is the most completely produced album in a long long time on every single end (production, lyrics, mastering, etc)...please give the deserved credit where it is due, this is a true masterpiece of music and a breath of fresh air for true hip hop
