SYNDICATE
Posted by: Dave on September 11, 2006 at 12:39 pm

The Roots Game TheorySound: Starts with a bleak outlook on today’s post-Katrina, war-on-terror world with urban jazz club hip hop, tense guitars/synths and gritty funk/r&b. The second half lightens up a bit and leaves room for hope with more positivity and spirituality.
Heavy Rotation tracks:Here I Comeicon“; “In the Musicicon
Medium Rotation tracks:Don’t Feel Right icon“; “Bread and Buttericon” (bonus track); “Game Theoryicon
Recommended: As a lyricist, Black Thought has never sounded so vital and the band’s music has never sounded as urgent. Too bad they let up on the chaotic, doomsday vibe in the second half. Game Theory loses some of its fire near the end.
Grade: B+
