Great longplayers from the past…

‘Run Come Save Me’

Second album
13 August 2001

BBC MUSIC REVIEW: “Primarily this album should be lauded for its degree of musical invention and individual approach to the genre. Rodney has produced three-quarters of the album himself and there are elements here that have subsequently reappeared in the world of R&B. On hearing the stuttering, organic funk of that huge, electronic bass line and the relentless, loping rhymes on “Witness (One Hope)”we are reminded of the production on Brandy’s “What About” masterminded by the genius of Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jerkins. There is a playful, anarchic disregard for time signatures as things slip across the bars and are then suddenly pulled back again. Roots is not afraid to experiment and the results are refreshing and unpredictable. We have here a record that will be artistically and commercially recognised without pandering to the sounds and attitudes of Stateside hip-hop.In making this truly individual record Roots Manuva has well and truly done the business.”
