So the Roots were sent off to make a Roots album. you know, that "artsy shit. Miraculously, art-hop's highest get concise on Game Theory- cutting song lengths, spoken-word tedium, and call-and-response nonsense.

Game Theory is The Roots' most thought-provoking, incitive album since their 1999 breakthrough Things Fall Apart and will be the group's debut for Def Jam Recordings, home to the world's premiere Hip-Hop artists. Despite their signing to Def Jam, on Game Theory the Roots head in a direction opposite from all the trendy, commercial formulas that the label has pioneered. This is as intensely a "Roots album" as anything they've put out, the rightful sequel to their brilliant, creative Phrenology (unlike their last album, the off-balance Tipping Point

On Game Theory, The Roots lay down some of their hardest grooves to date, such as on the title track, the solid first single Don’t Feel Right and the cheating turned crime of passion tale Baby, which features a chilling organ that, interestingly enough, recalls Wilco’s How to Fight Loneliness  . At 13 tracks and around 47 minutes in length, Game Theory provides a surprisingly lean, bullshit-free offering-their most focused to date. Every track is an absolute triumph, every beat solid, every groove impeccable and every word poignant.
