^^uhhh cause every single album they've created is better and homie i am not one of those dudes and cling to what a reviewer thinks i just think it was their worse still not bad they never had a bad album but definitely just average...

edit: illadelph Halflife, Do You Want More, Things Fall Apart, and Game Theory are all classics imo so those are the few that imo are obviously better there other stuff is either close to classic or 4/5 the only album i think is less than great is Tipping Point and maybe Organix.

and to you "roots" fans, if it werent for nostalgia, you would easily say how i got over stands up to their best. i love do you want more, illadelph halflife, and things fall apart personally, but this one has just as many good songs. and there are no skippables and all the verses are more than on point. gotta give this album credit. how i got over=distant relatives. both should be considered for 4.5-5 mics no question

no doubt I see where where ya coming from, and I guess these days there is definitely more hesitation when saying something is a classic. IMO HIGO stands up with their best, and this album, with the exception of Things Fall Apart, may have the best features that provide some absolute stunning verses, I just think this album is very well rounded yet still experimental.

The Roots as a group have the best track record of group albums IMO...it's hard to pick their best. I've always had an attachment to Illadelph, Things Fall Apart, and Game Theory though. Phrenology I think is the most underrated album in their discography though..people always swear that s**t is wack but it was just more R & B oriented. How I Got Over is up there though..s**t was too dope.

As far as the album in the source though...I think it's Recovery. HIGO deserves it more though to me.

for real. i hate ppl who are fans of artists or groups that won't let their new work compare to their old cuz of some sentinmental attachments or some bulls**t. ppl get so attached to what put them on said group/artist and no matter how good more recent releases are they won't put them ahead of the old s**t . cuz bottom line new roots album holds up to pretty much anything in their catalogue.

This is some real f**kin talk right here. How I Got Over basically contains everything I love about hip hop, and it has some of my favourite emcees, chilled production which is my most preferred and jut everything about it was what I love, hence why this is up there with my favourite Roots album ever, and dudes are too caught up with that whole that if it was 90's its automatically better, lyrically this album is fukin so ill.

i still think the roots and i'm glad i'm not the only one who loves their new cd, only song i don't like is web 20/20 but every song up to that point is insane. the production, the guest appearances, everything was just top notch. and i like the direction it took musically, just some s**t to vibe too, great record.

i will say this, i've been listening to that big boi album these past few days, and damn. it's slowly creeping into my top 5 of 2010 along with the roots, revolutions per minute, distant relatives, the pursuit of nappyness, and brothers (the black keys), eminem is also up there

Watch Drake get it and no one takes the source seriously anymore. Even though i feel Big Boi deserves it
