    Default The Roots-Game Theory

    what do yall think of the new roots album? i heard it and im not impressed at all, infact i think its weak, and the only track with replay value is the last track, just want to see if yall like it if youve heard it yet

    i liked most of it. i think it has pretty strong replay value. Some tracks are fillers and i might skip them but .....
    All in the Music
    Dont Feel Right
    Game Thoery
    Here i Come
    Take it There
    Those were real standouts
    The reset were average to sort of above but Black Thought came pretty strong IMO

    All Things Fall Apart and Illadelph Halflife.These are the only 2 albums I can really get into alltho I haven't heard all of their albums but Game Theory doesn't thrill me

    I can't get through it. The beats seem dead or something.

    Album is the best of the year, maybe it's too hard for people to listen to an artist that actually says shit when he rhymes.
    In the world I see, you're stalking elk through the damp canyon forest around the ruins of Rockefeller Center. You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying strips of venison on the empty carpool lane of some abandoned superhighway.

    thats YOUR opinion, and yeah black thought always has something to say when he rhymes but half of liking hip hop albums to me, is liking the beats and they really arent memorable beats compared to thier work in the past, your opinion isnt the only one that matters brah

    i would warn against getting phrneology, probably the weakest album.

    "Things Fall Apart"
    "Illadelph Halflife"
    "Do You Want More?!!!??!"

    are their best efforts. i havent heard "organix" though.
