Philadelphia supergroup/hip hop band The Roots have done it again. ...And Then You Shoot Your Cousin is a surprisingly soothing, musical journey through life's rattling turbulence and alternating joy. Every important Roots element can be found on the album, Black Thought's skillful lyrics, Questlove's innovative production, and the beautiful sounds of the rest of the band's organic instrumentation. Several guests, including Dice Raw, Nina Simone, and Raheem DeVaughn among others, make fantastic contributions and play a crucial role in the project. They somehow seem to stand out over the group as a whole with their indelible vocals and additions when they go in. Through it all, the participants celebrate their realization, awareness, and embrace of life's good/bad duality in a very special way.
