For fans of Phrenology and the Tipping Point this might come as quite a shock. They are, what I would consider to be, the Roots two most commercial albums. Things Fall Apart is the most cohesive of their first era, amazing rhymes, fantastic beats and just some of the finest hip-hop you're ever likely to hear.
The thing that attracts me to their music most is their sheer musical ability - they play virtually all the instruments, and their music truly is organic, a far cry from the decks/samples of modern hip hop.
Malik B's last album with the band is undoubtedly his best, and I urge you to buy it...
Fans of Talib K, Common, Hi Tek, etc, this should suit you
