I know some consider the whole genre "problematic" or whatever, but they work for me.

I don't have a problem with that sub-category (tho I think it's kinda playing itself out), but I do have a bit of an issue with the channels. a buddy recently told me he was into lofi beats, but he couldn't tell me the name of any artist he liked. seems like it's wallpaper music and individual talent doesn't get recognized when it's "consumed" (ugh...) in that format. just my little rant. continue on.

It wasn't so much that the album wasn't good to me when it was released, but it felt like a let down because the tone of the album was so heavy.

But I went down a The Roots rabbit hole one week and stumbled back upon the album and realized it's really good. The music is raw and intense in a way the band hadn't been before and Thought is a monster.

Game Theory is my 1/1a fave record by them.

Some of the hooks didnt work for me (Singing Man, I Can't Help It), Peedi ruins ANYTHING that he's on (for me), and it was just too many guests for me. But listening to it now, I can look past the hooks and most of the guests add to the album, especially once I finally got used to the idea that The Roots are more than just the cats you see out on tour.

Peedi still ruins Get Busy for me though

Every album after Phrenology felt underwhelming at first. But at some point, I circled back around and at some point really like the album.

15 and the crew really knew what they were doing.

Some people think that GT is their best or in the top 3 in their discography so the album must have really connected from the beginning with you.

I think the three big songs (Don't Feel Right / In the Music / Here I Come) worked for me from the beginning, but the other songs took more time to sink in.

Every album after Phrenology has been 'dark' or moody in some way and while I've come to appreciate them in their own way, my image of the band is still them in their DYWM and IH days where they were more vital and less reflective in their music.

So, when the new albums come out I'm still filtering the new music through that old lens. Probably isn't fair to the group but that's what ends up happening.

When I was younger, I preferred music that was more reflective or 'soulful', so I ought to be all over the new direction of the band. But it just hasn't clicked. I guess with adult responsibilities I look at music with more of an intent to escape. Not necessarily right probably, but that's where I'm at.

I think we all tend to view all artists' albums through the lens of how we first heard them, in a lot of cases. So I get that.

I also totally understand your preference for music as an "escape" rather than a reminder of the difficulties of adult life haha. I still gravitate to music with a message but not to the extreme that I used to. In my old age I certainly gravitate to simpler music sometimes myself, for the same reason ... just looking for something breezy and enjoyable rather than dense and, say, political.

Personally, I found that Game Theory provided both for me. It was political and deep but still banged so hard musically that it was enjoyable even if the lyrical content was a little denser than we were used to from them.

But again I can understand how you may have viewed it from the perspective you speak of.
