5.0 out of 5 stars The one we've been waiting for 15 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
As with most Roots Manuva albums, this is best judged after several listens - I reckon I've given it about a dozen or so before writing this.

It's certainly the most musically (and probably vocally) diverse album to date from Mr Smith, it's also the longest (19 tracks including the 2 bonus cuts) and for me, it's the most consistent too with most tracks barely given chance to outstay their welcome by being under 3 mins long, with the noteable exception of 'In The Throes Of It' which weighs in at over 7 mins.

There really isn't a bad track here from the openening few bars of the poppy 'First Growth' to the CD closer 'Bust It' but my highlights at the moment (although these have changed with repeated listens) are the squelching 'Here We Go Again', the skanktastic 'Who Goes There' & the atmospheric 'Revelation' but honestly I could name about 14 of the 19 tracks as favourites including a few, of which my first imprssion was not 'particularly favourable.

Like I said, give it a few listens - it's a grower - but then the best albums often are.

4.0 out of 5 stars better than last 22 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
very polished and well produced ,sorry roots but i loved the rawness of the early albums ,personally run come save me is my favourite ,i rate all his albums and longevity is hard on any artists creativity ,all in all a big improvement on slime and reason ,couple brilliant tracks couple weak tracks,but with 17 tracks and bonuses ,still a fair offering and roots is still way ahead of brit rap pack definatly worth a punt

5.0 out of 5 stars Unexpected quality album 2 Dec 2011
Format:Audio CD
I purchased this album to test out my new stereo after hearing the single on the radio. Initially I was a little bit sceptical, I did not really like Slime and Reason but loved his other three albums.

Great variety. After a couple of listens up there with his best. Back to form. Nice cd case for those that still buy CDs!

Deserves to do well but who knows nowadays in x-factor pork chop land.

4.0 out of 5 stars Roots still reigns... 15 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD
Not quite scaling similar heights in comparison to the very best of his back catalogue, but lyrically still consistently smarter & funnier than the rest and backed by the usual incessantly inventive rhythms. Also RM shows his ability with melody too; a talent his contemporaries seem to singularly lack.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece 2 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard this album, I thought it was probably Roots best work since Run Come Save Me. I was wrong. 4everevolution is Roots Manuva's best album full stop.

The musical doodling of Run Come Save Me is gone, as- to a large extent- the introspection that characterised the next two albums. What we've got here is an album brimming with ideas, some of the best lyrics of Roots garlanded career and backed up with some very memorable tunes.

The highlights of the album, for me, Here We Go Again, Who Goes There, Watch Me Dance, Revelation, Go Champ and the way it's followed by the brilliant Get The Get.

Everyone should buy this album, it's brilliant.
