WTF I thought they rate the albums the month they came out or earlier. s**t recovery gotta be 2 or 3 months old by now. What they letting sales and buzz influence their ratings now.

I Love the roots but this aint a classic, and I will tell you why every album they made before this one is arguably better than this one. Especially illadelph halflife and things fall apart.

Big Boi aint capable of making a classic with Outkast, and same is for Bun B without UGK.

The source is just looking for attention.
Phrenology, Organix and Rising Down are not better, this is close to my favourite album from them next to Tipping Point, Illadelph Halflife and Things Fall Apart. With How I Got Over there seems to be a division, like dudes who reckon its "too soft", and dudes who reckon its so chilled and soulful, if anything this is the closest sounding thing to Illadelph since Illadelph.

OB4CLII wasnt even the best album of last year, that IMO was Fashawn, let alone a classic, everyone jut got caught up in the whole fact that the Cuban Linx s**t is back. Album is solid, and worthy of a sequel, but its no classic at all. Seriously, if it was named anything else, it would just be another Rae solo, albeit a decent one.

I'll put Radio Daze, bar for bar an production wise against anything on OB4CLII.

I havnt heard all those but even without hearin all of it Eminem or The Roots the only one that deserve it from that list. Bun B has 5 mic talent but I cant see him makin a flawless album by himself, same goes for Big Boi.
err no, then he obviously doesnt have 5 mic talent is he cant do it by himself, I still dont get the hype around him.

Don't care and if I did I would be biased since I only heard half the albums listed. I mean drake a great album, Big boi was a nope to me, ross had half the bangers on the mixtape already! I'm not an em fan cuz his beats suck, I need to listen to the roots, but their beats are iffy to me at best, and bun b and fat joe, well nuff said.

Key word was arguably, if your a roots fan its hard to pick a favorite album. My personal favorite is Tipping Point, but all there albums are unique in their own way. Things fall apart is probably the album that has had the most commercial success. Even if the source gives this album 5 mics it will never get the credit it is worth because it came out in 2010. I haven't even seen a video for Dear God 2.0

On another note I'm really anticipating that new Lupe Fiasco and Jay Electronica

Same as me. I just think people know the roots make good music, but i seriously think this is he closest thing to a classic on that list.

Is it just me, or does Distant Relatives lack any replay value whatsoever, i'm not saying it isnt dope, but that got stale pretty quick for me.

Tipping Point over Phrenology and Rising Down???

I'm going with Big Boi's album....just because imo it was the best album on the list (and also the most surprising- i thought after all the delays it would turn out to be mediocre)

I think Recovery is a 4.5 Mic album at best but if they are going to give it 5 mics then they seriously need to go back and give MMLP 5 mics.

Why is that hard to believe? Lyrically, production wise and cohesiveness on that album is so damn good, and Black Thought >. Phrenology is solid, but its nothing to special, and Rising Down, was so underwhelming, just basically a weaker version of Game Theory with too many lacklustre features, and yet it was still a good album.

by far the worst roots album tipping point is the worse...but agree with everything i think how i got over is a mixture of the dark "rising down" and the jazzy "do you want more" how i got over is a 4.5 and the closest thing on the list to a classic even tho i don't think any of the picks should get a 5 but sense the last one to get a 5 was kim who cares who gets a 5 it already basically lost its cred.

Insane. You can play that album over and over again. Easily one of the finest albums of the year, and I think it's worthy of 5 mics.
not me cause I dont like the roots period

I deleted Recovery less than an hour after I put it in my iTunes.

just because the critics say it doesnt mean thats its correct. Please explain why you think Tipping Point is their worst..
