Boomkat Product Review:
After 1999's 'Brand New Second Hand' and 2001's 'Run Come Save Me' I thought I'd heard the last of Roots - this feeling getting stronger and stronger as the month's went by fuelled by rumours that he was out of contract with Big Dada. Phew then this might well be his last album but it's a great way to go .... all but a couple of tracks here are as good as anything that Roots has delivered to date, check the new school dubbed out wickedness of 'Mind2Motion', the deliciously sly ska flavoured 'A Haunting' and the deep and crisp dancefloor wrecker 'Chin Up' an obvious choice for next single (but what do I know). A master of self-deprication and killer production, even the post-grime grinds of the shuffles here make you root for the man to carry on producing. For this limited edition version (hurry, hurry) you get a bonus six track of demo versions and live tracks. Give this album a few spins and you'll proudly file it next to the other two Roots album you cherish so much. Highly recommended.
