Great album. 4/5

And where the hell are the 14 knuckleheads who gave this less than a 4? I ain't hating on any of you guys, but at least leave a comment as to why you ranked it so low.

@ 1s or 2s, the album is easily a 4 and one of the best of the year.

I like this album a lot. I gave it a 4. The songs I don't like, i really hate. And the songs I like are instant classics IMO.

There's only like 3 tracks that I don't like at all. The rest are amazing.

What tracks do you 'really hate'?

I really want clarification from people who are hating any of this album. If anyone who gave it under 4 wants to clarify that they're not just a troll can you please say exactly why you didn't like the album as much as you should've done?

Picked up the album on the weekend. It really grows on you as time goes on, first few listens I thought it was really good, but now it is one of my favorite Roots albums. Probably listened to it 10-15 times throughout. Hard to pick favorite songs, but Walk Alone, Dear God 2.0, Right On and The Fire really stand out for me.

Amazing how these guys never fade with time and consistently produce great music. This is why I love hip hop.

I'm not feeling "Hustla" or "Web 20/20" at all.

Every other song is at least a 4 in my iTunes. Except "A peace of Light" and "Dillatude" and "Tunnel Vision." just because they feel like interludes or intros to me.

I'm definitely not trolling, i'm a HUGE Roots fan, seen them in concert numerous times and have all their albums, even the Home Grown! ones.

I think "Web 20/20" is dope, it definately sounded better to me the second time around. "Hustla" is the only track I left off my ipod because I really can't stand it but I guess that's why they left it on as a bonus. Album gets a solid 5/5 from me. period.

Wow at the 5 mic'ers I can't agree with that... ill say 4. Shyt wasn't earth shattering but it was still a great album from a consistent pillar of hiphop.


i hope they sell enough to want to make more music...
