Them shits get a spin on the initial album and never again. I don't listen to skits or nothing after the first spin.

by the time that intro got going, my soul was crushed.

The album ended up having some joints, but that was really the definition of a mixed affair.

I've probably listened to that album in its entirety three times, tops. Too much effort wading through the sludge to get to the gems.

I felt that's what TFA was, and they achieved greatness with it

Phrenology seemed like the Roots trying to figure out where to take their sound next, which led to a more poppy neo soul / r&b feel

Outside Undun, Phrenology is my least favorite Roots album

where you know who lost his head up his own ass, making records for critics, obsessing over "minstrelsy" and not just doing his best for the satisfaction of the listener.

this record was laughable at it's attempts to be a "swerve" to the fans.

truly an awful, unsatisfying and worst of all inartistic album that questlove to this day still doesn't even realize or recognize the failure of.

with him at the helm, they continued down this delusional path for the rest of their career.

the only reprieve being a few solitary tracks dispersed throughout the next 10 years worth of releases.

Because the way I hear it, that's where a lot of his meant-to-be-solo work went.

I mean, I don't agree with you either way, but I wanted to be perfectly clear on who I'm disagreeing with you about.

not a goddamn thing.

for all the thousand of banal bitchassed posts you've made through the years

(such as are currently littering the front page of the lesson)

nothing could be clearer.

you don't have a fucking clue.
