Consequence of Sound

All told, the story undun tells is sometimes chilling, often thrilling, and always illuminating.

PopMatters

Despite its various faults undun is righteously solid

Pitchfork

This isn't the Roots' most accessible album, and it's definitely their most downbeat, but it comes from a place that isn't always easy to dwell.

This is the only Roots record I've listened so far and to be honest, I found it very generic. Neither the band nor Black Thought impressed me as innovators.

The only part I can say that I really enjoyed: Three movement tracks at the end
