Fantastic and a little Strange
31 December 2016
There is little I want to say about this great record. It has some eyebrow-raising moments throughout. It appears to divide opinion like no other Roots record. The good thing about this type of brave experimental musical evolution though is if you like it, you really like it. That is how I feel about 'And Then You Shoot Your Cousin'. I have to stop myself just hammering it on repeat play so as not to play it to death.
There is not much a review like this can do. You just have to listen to it. Who wants The Roots to just keep churning out Things Fall Apart or Phrenology time and time again? All great bands evolve. This is evolution, and in all the right ways.
