Song of the Day: ‘Right On’ by The Roots

By Staff | Jul 12, 2010

The Roots have a new album out and it’s easily one of their best in years.

Rapper Black Thought is at his sharpest and drummer ?uestlove’s arrangements leave "How We Got Over" cohesively tight. Each song flows into the next and each effort is focused.

Samples from contemporary artists like Monsters of Folk and Joanna Newsom are perfectly used. A snippet from Newsom in "Right On," in particular is worthy of a listen.
