got it about a week ago and its dope, on a similar level to "illadelph halflife" and "do you want more". not quite as good but dope all the same.

id say 10, the mos collab was nuts

the album was average to me, especially compared to 'illadelph halflife'
the production was dull and messy, the album didnt flow and i think its the worst roots album yet
obviously im the only one

07-16-2006, 12:29 PM
phrenology is alot worse....

07-16-2006, 01:05 PM
For me it's something like:

1. Things Fall Apart/Illadelph Halflife
2. Do You Want More
3. Game Theory
4. Phrenology
5. The Tipping Point/Organix

This album is quality.

best roots album

Things Fall Apart i think is real good. I like the songs The Next Movement, Dynamite, Without A Doubt, Ain't Saying Nothing New, Love Of My Life. Phrenology, The Tipping Point, Game Theory albums are terrible. Black Thought is still a ill lyricist but i'm not feeling their beats anymore. I notice that Malik B and Dice Raw don't collaborate with them that much anymore and that sucks because both of them are good rappers.

04-12-2008, 12:04 PM
Come on man, Game Theory was far from terrible.

It had some weaker tracks, but Black Thought performed well, and there were a good number of solid track.

Long Time was one of my favourite tracks of that year.

The Tipping Point is ok in my opinion, Web is a prety great track. But i can see were your coming from with that.

Phrenology was pretty terrible though.

04-12-2008, 12:07 PM
Whatever man. I didn't like Game Theory.

04-12-2008, 01:43 PM
I really liked Phrenology, Tipping point I thought was weak, as for Game theory I haven't heard it so I can't comment.

04-12-2008, 03:24 PM
Phrenology just really didnt resonate with me at all when it came out, i tried to give it a go later on and its still the same.

cant stand it.

I remember when I bought this album on cassette, I use to ride out to this joint, everytime I hear it I'm brought back to that time.

the album is a 10 to me but i dont feel its the best the roots have to offer. its probably my third or 4th favorite roots album. just goes to show how dope the roots truely are.

awesome album.

The album doesn't flow??? Damn...IMO this is one of the best sequenced hip-hop albums that I've heard. Alot of tracks literally flow together, so... I feel that this is The Roots in their prime and I'm a huge fan; there's not one album that I feel isn't great. I think some people got lost along the way (ex.- 8 Diagrams) but every album had it's own authentic vibe. "The Next Movement", "Ain't Sayin Nuthin New", "Without A Doubt", "Double Trouble", "Adreneline!", etc... This is 10/10 CLASSIC. Peace-
