5.0 out of 5 stars Yup, I like this one., 17 July 2000
This review is from: Brand New Second Hand (Audio CD)
The first I heard of Roots Manuva was his "lazy tuxedo grooves" on 'Very Mercinary' (Herbaliser). His lyrical style and content struck a very strong cord in me.
This album is class. Yes, I'm biased - I share alot the sentiments expressed. But, even if you just have a passing interest in hip-hop, this album is a must. It is seminal.
Justin: What's wrong with the production. Don't you think it's intentionally lo-fi on some of the tracks? The idea isn't to create a polished piece of plastic...
One really refreshing aspect of Roots Manuva's discourse is the lack of the need for self gratification which seems to infect so much hip-hop.
I could write reams about this album... It's rich in soul, rhyme, intellect, humanity, funk.......
No hype needed - it stands firmly on its own feet and then soars to where few can reach.
