Publication YearIssue Date 

Sometimes, it's good to judge an album by its cover. Slime & Reason has a striking image of a pale, statue-like man with his skull cut open horizontally, a pool of violently green liquid sitting peacefully in the cavity within on the front. London rapper Roots Manuva's sixth studio album is a catchy, danceable record that combines Manuva's deep, resonant voice with solid lyrics and a refreshing infusion of reggae beats.

The single "Again & Again" is extremely catchy-- although that might be due to the endless repetition of the words "again and again and again"-- and adds to the head-bop inducing sound of the album.
