This is undoubtedly the best album by The Roots, and includes timeless acts like:

  • Section
  • Wot They Do
  • Respond/React
  • Push Up Ya Lighter
  • No Alibi
  • Ital (The Universal Side)

Listening to Section is actually what prompted me to write this post, for I loved it so much that I wondered if Next Movement (from their later [Things Fall Apart album][]), which I have for a long time regarded as the best hip-hop track ever, deserves it's position at the top of the group's work, and therefore removing it from the list of hip-hop landmarks.
