Mos Def and Talib Kweli were respectively in their prhyme while they dropped this album. It has a lot to offer in term of socially conscious lyrics.

Some of the most intellectual lyrics in hip hop. Practically a class on African American studies. Talib Kweli is a great rapper. "Respiration" and "Thieves in the Night are highlights". Musically it's not too interesting.

I agree that they definitely lay down some intelligent lyrics. I prefer albums that mix the beat up a little more, use sampling, and have more DJ work.
