5.0 out of 5 stars The sum of the parts... 27 Feb 2011
By W. Page
Format:Audio CD
Anyone who (really) knows hip hop knows the role of the DJ and the importance of the Mix Tape. A quality hip hop act is worth one, a timeless hip hop catalogue of repertoire is worth one, add J Period to splice and dice the two ingredients together and its worth one hundred.

I've recommended this Mix CD to many Roots fans who have since moved on to other acts, and it has succeeded is bringing them back to Philly to re-appreciate this band, their skill and the power of their work. Classics are there, such as the jaw dropping "Next Movement", but the way in which new and re-worked material is woven in and out of this mix makes it a trip. A real trip.

In an age of Spotify playlists, it's phenomenal to see what technology can't touch, which is being placed in the hands of a master DJ with a phenomenal live act to cut up. Very few CDs have had the same level of "lock in" as this - from the word go, there is no skipping, and no deviation in attention.

Strongly recommended for the iPod when out and about too (jogging, travelling) as it just trips you out.

5.0 out of 5 stars DEFINATELY BEST OF THE ROOTS!! 6 Feb 2008
Format:Audio CD
Me being a very big roots fan, i have all their albums apart from this one. So i decided to buy it as i was slighty anoyyed i didnt have all the songs by the roots. It really is a good album, I recommend this album to you if you like albums like things fall apart and homegrown vol.1+2. The new songs that i havent heard before are all good, i expected the remixes not to be very good, but suprisingly they all are!! This album is very ideal for leaving on you cd player in the car of at home. The thing that annoyed me about the album is the fact that nearly all the songs are about 1 or 2 minutes long. When you listen to the album all the way through you will not regret buying it. This album includes nearly all of my favourite roots songs, cut into smaller parts, which is alot easier yo listen to as you dont have to listen to all the starts and endings of songs, they just get straight into it. Overall i would recommend this album to anyone who owns everything by the roots apart from this. IT IS A GOOD ALBUM!! VERY GOOD.

2.0 out of 5 stars only for mixtape lovers........ 11 Mar 2011
By Zimbo T
Format:Audio CD
...this is an unfortunate project.....I LOVE THE THE ROOTS.....i have been following the 5th dynasty since i first heard 'do you want more' in 1995....back then snoop dogg had just come out and was taking the world by storm.....then my friend s brother gave me the 'do you want more' tape (yes it was that long ago) and I was sold, i did away with 'doggy style' and was enlightened with 'proceed', 'what goes on', 'silent treatment', 'the lesson' etc....the roots are a legendary, innovative rap/hiphop band and mix tapes ruin this!! If you want a the best of the roots, buy both the 'home grown beginners' guides to the roots...then buy all their other albums....absolute genius rap/hiphop. I do not recommend this mix tape/perversion! Don't waste your money...if you are curious, download it for free!
