Things Fall Apart was big b/c of their single "You Got Me" featuring Badu. I think that single won a grammy....but becoming pop(ular) b/c of quality and "sounding" pop(ular) is a whole different thing. "Things..." dosen't sound pop: i.e. Step into the Realm, Dynamite!, Adreneline, 100% Dundee, ect.... "You Got Me" was a slow song w/Badu singing the chorus but it didn't sound pop. The Next Movement didn't sound pop to me, either.
