3.0 out of 5 stars a little bit of a let down, 30 April 2008
This review is from: Rising Down (Audio CD)
Got this on pre-order.. it arrived same day release.

I love the roots - was really excited when i saw a new album for them.

Got to admit that their last couple have taken time to grow on me, the tipping point and game theory - they both did grow on me.

I listened to this new album once - didnt click with it.. I listened to it a 2nd time some hours later - still wasnt feeling it.. I then listened to it a 3rd time after a smoke - it still didnt sound right.

It is the roots but not quite right - it almost feels a little 'rocky' to me and a little overly heavy on the beats - thought i was listening to a rock/rap album at several points.

I know this isnt helpful but anyone who loved Cypress Hills albums until they started throwing in guitars all over the shop will know what i mean with this.

At work at the miinute so dont have time to write much.

this is a 3 out of 5 album which hopefully will sound better after more listens.

get their old albums before this tho if u not really heard much of the roots.

I've got to say I feel exactly the same about this album. There are a coupla tracks I do like: "Get busy", while not typical Roots, is catchy enough, and "Criminal" is nice, but on the whole I found the whole album lacking; I've never forwarded past so many tracks by The Roots, possibly my favourite band, in my life. Ah well. Good review, BreaKz!
