The Roots: Game Theory
Buy! - (Def Jam)
Pissed off at the state of the world, from the war in Iraq to social/political dysfunction at home, this veteran Philadelphia hip hop group responds with this dark and brooding masterpiece. Drummer/producer ?uestlove supplies ominous, at times claustrophobic production to accompany Black Thought and some stellar guest MCs as they move from gritty street scenes to angry calls to revolution that evoke the political militancy of Public Enemy. Tight, focused and filler-free, Game Theory is one of the Roots’ finest efforts. 8/28/2006 - Don Yates
