The Roots' Game Theory (out today 29 August 2006)

So, anybody else get this? I preordered it off of iTunes but for some stupid fucking reason, iTunes only cued up the even numbered tracks for my preorder download, so I only have half of the album.

I like what I hear, but I need the complete album. I've already filed a complaint, but their customer service sucks ass.

Okay, anyway, I don't want this to be an iTunes bitch fest, so...

What do you think of The Roots' new album Game Theory?

Good Album. Only given it one spin so far, but I like what I hear. More of a return to (pardon the pun) their "roots".

VH1 Soul has been playing the album in its entirety, so I sat and listened to it last night. I liked and plan on picking it up today, but that's a given, this was going to be bought anyway.
The Roots never seem to disappoint me.

Listened to it again on the way to work today. Liked it more than I did the first time (which was a lot).

I too have never been disapointed by any of their efforts.

I ordered it directly from their website and received it yesterday with a free Roots mixtape. It's a great album and much darker than their other stuff. I only wish the booklet had ?uestlove liner notes.

?uestlove is still writing the liner notes. They'll most likely show up on Okayplayer.
