The Roots Released Their Fifth Album 'Phrenology' 19 Years Ago Today!!!!
 

 
this is one of the roots best albums imo....
'phrenology' is another unsung gem in hip hop.

I remember this album very well
I was in hs when this dropped. Man time memories

Had some joints. “Complexity” with Jill Scott could’ve been a single
But I guess because it was the vibe as “break you off” they Didi t do it

Can’t forget about “water” where he addressed Malik B’s addiction issues which caused him not to be with the group

Rock you and thought @ work were lyrical masterpieces

Then they followed this album up with the tipping point
Which was another amazing album

I’ll good sh*t op good sh*t.

They really dont have any bad albums. Tipping Point might be their weakest album but even that was sold

I prefer this version better. I use to play this in my break dancing class heavily.

Facts fam.

I really liked Tipping point. But you can tell on that album they were reaching for more mainstream appeal. Dont say nothing was so dope to me in the summer of 04. I was like damn black thought over a Scott storch beat(storch was on fire at the time too)
I guess if I had to pick a weak album it would be that one.
