    I've been revisiting their discography and man.. it's damn near flawless. Black Thought is that nigga.

    All these classics, sh!t.

    If you like the Roots I HIGHLY suggest reading ?uestlove's autobiography "Mo' Meta Blues."

    I loved The Roots up until Things Fall Apart... and ironically, that's when things fell apart for me... lol... they just became too watered down... BT started adopting a more conventional flow and they went more on a rock tip... I prefer the jazzier, hip hop version of the band, when BT's schemes were all over the place... and Malik B. was a regular member.

    nah bruh, you're trippin.

    go ahead and revisit their albums past TFA. The only album I don't really rock with is The Tipping Point, but there's a whole story behind why that album was completely different.

    Revisit their albums and cop ?'s book. You're welcome.
