Hey everyone,
 
 I just want to know who has heard this brand new masterpiece by The legendary, hard working Roots crew, called "undun". It released yesterday, Dec. 6, 2011.  I've listened to the whole album about 4x on a live stream. Hopefully I'll be able to buy the CD soon (if my mom gives me some money). Share your thoughts and favorite tracks! Mine are "Make My", "Kool On", and "Lighthouse".

It's a fantastic album.  I'm a huge Roots fan and I've been looking forward to this album for a few months now.  I haven't purchased it yet, as I've vowed to save some ideas for stocking stuffers this year and refrain from making new music purchases from now until Christmas.  Spotify has been blowing up the spot with the magic of the Roots all day today though.

Its tremendous. How I Got Over was a good return to form, but undun is an absolute classic. Might be the best since Things Fall Apart.


 
Yup, same thing I said!! And today I read in an interview with Questlove, they're in the process of working on their 15th album!!!!!!!!!!!! EEEEEEEPPPPPP!!!!!!

Another awesome album from the best rap group in town. I've listened to it a couple of times today.
 
I might be making thing up, but  I definitely hear references to game theory on this album as well.  Game Theory is (still) my favorite album.
 
Edit: The OtherSide is great.

Ahhh good news for me today... I just got accepted to my #1 top choice college!!!! AND I bought "undun"!!! P.S. My favorite album is "Organix"... I love the classics... But I have all their albums except "Phrenology" and "Wake Up!" "DYMO", "Illadelph", and "Things Fall Apart" fall after. Then "undun", "HIGO" and then "Game Theory", Rising Down" & "Tipping Point".

Definitely my favorite Roots album.


 
Of course.  Return to Innocence Lost gives me the shiver in a good bad way.  But I'm an economist (game theory is an important part of especially microeconomics).  What can I do?  Furthermore, Clock with no Hands is probably my favorite number.

Amazon download has it for $3.99.  At that price, buy it twice.



Hahaha I was thinking about buying the mp3 album from Amazon but CD quality is just more awesome.
