When Roots gets on the turntable, it tends to stay there for a while. This has been a Lab longplayer since day one. An uplifting experience for those days when the work doesn't end. Epic soul with an emphasis on epic. Don't get misdirected, this is some positive mellow material. The kind everyone needs, even the hard rocks. You cant deny the beautiful combination of "Now You're Gone" and "Love to Keep You in Mind." The convincing voice on "Keep on Keeping On" and "We Got to Have Peace." Curtis has a message for the people that works as a quiet compliment to something like Marvin Gaye's equally powerful What's Going On. Combine these feelings with Curtis' skillfull orchestration and you have this beautiful, balanced album. Recommended.
