    Dark, exciting new territory for the Philadelphia based band.

    This is my favorite Roots album. It's listenable from start to finish. It never dips off and "Don't Feel Right", "Long Time", and "Atonement" take the experience to the next level.

    I dont know what happened to the Roots before Undun but this album wasnt nearly good. They couldnt make this album a classic and it disappoints me because im a huge Roots fan. But at least we have classics like "Undun" & Phrenology

    Like prior Roots albums, Game Theory boasts top-notch craftsmanship... but it's continuity that makes this album unique. [Sep 2006, p.211]
  2. "Game Theory" helps rescue a remarkably anemic hip-hop summer. [20 Aug 2006]
  3. It's all ghetto vérité and political paranoia, with claustrophobic production to match the doom and gloom.
