Roots Manuva - Run Come Save Me - Cd

Amazon.co.uk

Given Roots Manuva's higher profile this time around, it was always on the cards that a new album might be a more commercial affair. But while Run Come Save Me is more accessible, it manages to retain the rawness that made its predecessor so addictive. When his self-produced, leftfield hip-hop debut Brand New Second Hand appeared in 1998, it was a clarion call for UK MCs to give up emulating US styles and focus on home-grown vibes. Three years and several collaborations later the renegade rapper is back with another adventure into wayward lyricism and maverick beat-work. "Witness (One Hope)" is a perfect example: an undoubtedly energetic and catchy tune, it also features plenty of sci-fi bleeps and quirky Manuva-style subject matter. Likewise, tracks such as "Bashment Boogie", "Join the Dots" (featuring West Coast MC Charlie 2na), "Kicking the Cack" and "Swords in the Dirt" all combine plenty of Roots-Fireggae! boom-bap with idiosyncratic production. There's some grittier, darker, dubbed-out business here too, and some totally off-the-hook rhyming on tracks like "Ital", "Hol' It Up" and "Stone the Crows". For those who thought Roots would never top his debut, welcome to an album that's bigger, brasher and badder all round. --Paul Sullivan

Received the Cd but with only 3 tracks on it. Didn't even have any of the tracks listed on the album cover. I reckon it was a very dodgy copy!

In a year when album after album instanly impressed with production sheen and wham bam hooks , only to pall rapidly , this is the one that actually got better and better with every listen . It's hip hop , but its so much more than that , seamlessly mixing in techno , dub and drum and bass influences as the lyrics conjure up a world of London street mystics. Operating from a tiny label , roots manuva gives the whole dance music world a lesson : "Refuse to get lost in the quest for wrong " . The superlatives come easily : best hip hop album since Wu Tang's debut . Best British hip hop album ever . Best album of any kind of 2001 .

"RCSM" is the first album by Roots Manuva that i have bought, and I thought it was just superb. Totally unique and incredibly daring in a time when rapping is stereotyped as just being about "guns n' pussy". Manuva disregards this with a simple wave of his hand and produces a rare and monumental masterpiece. If you havent heard him, you're missing out, trust me. Try this out and you will not be dissapointed.

Stand out tracks are "Join The Dots" with the wonderful Chali 2na, "Ital Visions" and "Witness (1 Hope)".

Buy it!

From 'No Strings...' to 'Dreamy Days', every style pushed forward. Anyone expecting the boom - bap, it's there but in a British way. To long has the British scene been rooted in the underground, people need to hear this. It's uniquely different to the US stuff. It incorporates so much more in its production, plus it comes with a British accent. References in the lyrics we can actually feel for, slang that you will actually know the meaning of. Not since The Brotherhood and Lewis Parker has underground that has gone main, actually been any good. Buy this, support the homegrown talent.

This is with out a doubt the best album of last year. Any hip-hop fan without a copy of this in their collection should get one NOW. THIS INSTANT. Simply press the buy button and you're sorted. It's rare to find a hip hop album which doesn't get boring at any point on the album. Mr Manuva gives us not only great beats but also fantastic lyrics. We hear his views on drugs, religion, marriage etc.. the last 7 tracks are amazing. Less raw than Brand New Second Hand and more soulfull at times. There's plenty of Dub influences though and check 'Dub come save me' as well. I'm a big fan of UK hip hop and this is it at its best! Other artists to have a look at might be New Flesh. also on the Big Dada lable.

I bought this on the strength of the reviews here and a couple of collaborations he did (Cinematic Orchestra & Saian Supa Crew) and I'm not disappointed. I'm actually sitting this minute with the headphones on and haven't even finished my first listen but it's completely stunning!
Stateside rap and hip-hop seems to be mainly sample based drawing, naturally, upon black American music (funk, soul, jazz, etc) and America-centric subject matter, so it's great to hear someone with a W.I./British accent rapping over heavily dubbed-up electro style beats. It's vital, refreshing, inventive and a plain good listen.

UK hip hop has always lived in the shadow of its older and more street savvy american cousin but now with the likes of Roots Manuva, Rodney P, Skitz, Black Twang et al theres a real chance that the more innovative and interesting beats and rhymes will emanate from this side of the atlantic. Strange but true. Not to say that there isnt a glut of wicked tunes from the states but nothing ive heard even from the more experimental labels like Def Juxx is as phat, funky and pure damn good as this roots manuva album. Take brand new second hand(his first album), run come save me and his tracks on Skitz countryman (especially where my mind is at) and you might just be looking at someone monumentally important in UK hip hop.
Run come save me is lyrically awesome - the rhymes often defy ordinary rules of verse, but its what theyre about that is so impressive. there's Mr Manuva's urban roots, his take on religion and the influence of his deacon father, his life laid bear on a platter. His vocal style is slight Jamaican twang and patois combined with an deep south london burr.
Roots is assisted by welcome contributions from the likes of Rodney P and Jurrasic 5s charlie Tuna. But the thing about roots is the beatz. the science. he produces some of the darkest, wierdest but most melodic trippy hip hop instrumentals ive heard. its not up its own arse its just right.
question is: where does he go from here? A further US collaborations and an invasion stateside? who knows. If I were picking the England team - roots would be my centre forward. America - listen and learn.

As far as I'm concerned, "Witness" is THE British hip hop anthem; a razor blade-ripped cyclone of a track, ideal for Roots Manuva to rap about beans on toast over (yes, it's that lyrical reference again). The rest varies from quite good to good. "Ital Visions" and "Evil Rabbit" predate Burial by a good five years when it comes to transferring the atmosphere of a rain-soaked London night into sound; in fact, save for the intro, the whole 60 minutes is loaded with heaviness, with mechanical clicks, robosynths and even the occasional sample (there's like 2 on the whole record...), with a sound not unlike Cannibal Ox's The Cold Vein. Like that album, of course, this also should've been condensed, but I applaud Manuva for choosing such a threatening and distinctive style of production. Run Come Save Me avoids the biggest pitfalls of British rap in that it isn't trying to sound like it's from The States nor is it making a point of how British it is, it's just its own entity. Not the statement it could've been, but, if you want to venture past the American big-hitters and the usual underground suspects in the pursuit of a deeper hip hop experience, this thing's a must.
