    albums meant to be good. apparently a good mix of club and dub or something it said in the paper. picked it up but haven't listened yet.

    heard it, and whilst i didnt like the song as it is, im sure is just ironic. I always wanted to see fat chicks in rap videos.!

    love the Manuva, cant wait to hear the whole album.

    His new album is wank.

    I love Roderick, but what is he playing at with this album? There's like 3 sick tunes, and another 1 or 2 decent tunes. Rest are piss poor. Toddla T's production is dissapointing on it too.

    He was shit when I saw him in Brum. Well disappointed.

    As for his recent output, I don't think there's major cause for concern.

    Brand New Second Hand 8/10 (needed more variety)
    Run Come Save Me 8/10 (brilliant, but has a few weak moments)
    Dub Come Save Me (haven't played it much but the dub mix of Witness is awesome)
    Awfully Deep 6/10 (some great tracks and production but perhaps a little too introverted and suffers from a lack of direction)
    Alternately Deep 7/10 (some great cuts that didn't make Awfully Deep - much more vibrant)

    Reviews of Slime & Reason sound positive. Can't wait until I can afford it!

    Run Come Save Me is a flawless album. One of the best UK Hip-Hop albums ever made.

    Brand New Second Hand is near flawless, and has Movements on it, one of the best samples in a tune ever.

    Awfully Deep and Alternately Deep were classic albums too.

    Dub come save me was decent.

    This new one is shite in contrast. Proper proper poor for Rederick.

    Don't wanna cause any grief by stating this as I know some peeps have been getting sensitive on this forum lately but I just wanna point out Brofski that Roots Manuva's name is Rodney not Rederick...Just wanted to clear it up!

    OK...as you were!

    I know his name's Rodney lol. Rodney Smith.

    Loads of people (such as Black Twang) refer to him as Roderick though. Was a nickname in school or something.

    I used to think Run Come Save Me was flawless, but I find myself skipping tracks now.

    Yeh, I grow tired of stuff. I don't listen to them for a while, bang the album on and think, "how did I get tired of this?" Raekwon's OB4CL was the most recent album that I did this with.
