Your rating for DYWM is too low IMO, but the rest are fairly accurate.

4. Rising Down- Criminal, Rising Down

I can't rank How I Got Over yet but Doin' It Again is my favorite track so far.

Same here man. I haven't heard How I Got Over yet but when I do I'll put up a list. It'll probably be similar to yours, although I like Organix more than The Tipping Point, slightly.

The Tipping Point- 4.5 (Don't Say Nuthin and Boom!)
Game Theory- 4.5 (In The Music and Atonement)
Phrenology- 4.25 (Rolling With Heat and The Seed)
Things Fall Apart- 4.0 (Next Movement and You Got Me)
Rising Down- 4.0 (Singing Man and 75 Bars)

I'm not comfortable rating the rest since I can't listen to them all the way through the few times I have tried. I like their newer sound opposed to the basemet underground sound of old.

Dude, you SERIOUSLY need to spin those albums all the way through to get the full effect of them.

I felt the same way about DJ Quik, but then after coppin 4 of his albums (they're pretty cheap on Amazon) I find that he does have skills. I know you're not dissin the Roots, but I think that if you listened to Do You Want More, Illadelph Halflife (my personal fav) and Things Fall Apart (I can't see under 4 stars for this album) more often, you'd probably dig them more.

Yeah but Black Thought is in my top 30 fav rappers so I am listening trust me. Just some of those beats and Malik and Dice on the mic were not all that impressive to me.

Finally listened to How I Got Over and its dope. All the guest appearances get old but it works for the most part. I'll rate it with Rising Down as of now.

Yeah I know, and that's crazy but WTFE. Malik is dope, but he's Robin to Black Thought's Batman.
