review-illadelph halflife
« on: April 14, 2001, 10:57:48 PM »



1. intro: an average intro, not as good as the "do you want more" intro-3.5
2. respond react-4.5
3. section-4.5
4. panic: perfect execution, possibly the best track on the album, although it is short-5
5. it just don't stop: this track drags on to long, not bad, but not great-3.5
6. episodes-4
7. push up ya lighter-4.5
8. what they do: another nice track, nice instrumentals on this one, similar to tracks on their first album-5
9. ? vs. scratch(interlude)-3.5
10. concerto of the desperado-4
11. UNIverse at war: another album highlight, nice guess spot from common sense-5
12. no alibi: great track-5+
13. dave vs. US(interlude)-3.5
14. no great pretender-4
15. the hypnotic: nice laid back track, D'Angelo does a nice job on the vocals-5
16. ital(the universal side): nice collabo between q-tip and the roots-5
17. one shine-3.5
18. adventures in wonderland-4
19. outro-3.5



Overall a nice effort from the roots. A different feel from the first album (2nd) as illadelph halflife had that studio feeling, while do you want more had the live feeling, which I thought was better. overall a 4.25, close to 4.5

Illadelph Halflife is a classic. Great lyrics, and on top of that they use REAL instruments instead of computer shit. Definatly a talented group, and this is their best album in my opinion. A must have. "What They Do" is my joint!!
