Obviuosly I got this album like 8 years after it was released but I can't live without writing about this classic Roots Project. I've seen The Roots play live and it was an experience I'll never forget. However, this album took a while to grow on me. After one night of heavy concentration and patients it was evident that this album is amazing and so are the roots. The thing that I love about this album and the roots is that they are so different compared to the other hip hop acts. Not only are they well spoken; not concerned about cars, jewelery, and guns, they play live instruments with rarely any sampling involved. My favorite tracks on the cd are "Mellow My Man", which is just fly, "Datskat", "Lazy Afternnon" all 3 verses are the same but it's an interesting concept, "Do YOu Want More" the titled track, " What Goes on Pt. 7", Silent Treatment". I also enjoy listening to "? vs. Rahzel". THough the Roots band members have changed such as Malik B. departing, ?uestlove, Black Thought, Dj Scratch, Hub are a forced to be reckened with. The thing that I like about this cd is that it is very creative, innovative, nd jazz originated. I just laugh when my my friends ask me whos's in my cd player at the time and when I say the Roots they give me a weird look. I guess they're just brainwashed with this stupid 50 Cent and Cash Money Millionaire madness. They really missing out.
