20th Anniversary 3LP reissue

Remastered from the original master tapes

With bonus tracks curated by Questlove, and 24-page booklet!

The fourth album by The Roots was recorded at Jimi Hendrix's Electric Lady Studios and released in 1999. Considered by critics as their breakthrough, Things Fall Apart was the first album of The Roots that exceeded half-a-million sold units.

In celebration of its 20th anniversary, Geffen/Universal Music Enterprises offer up a triple vinyl LP reissue of The Roots' breakthrough fourth album Things Fall Apart remastered from the original master recordings and featuring bonus selections plus a 24-page booklet with rare photos, retrospective essays by Black Thought and Questlove, and track-by-track liner notes from Questlove. The original album is presented on double vinyl while the third LP includes the bonus tracks curated by Questlove.

1999's Things Fall Apart saw The Roots catapult into the cultural consciousness like never before. The album was praised for its complex sound and thematic maturity by playing with the conventions of both hip-hop and soul. Climbing to No. 4 on the Billboard 200 and certified platinum in the U.S., it's smash hit single "You Got Me," a collaboration with R&B singer Erykah Badu and Eve, won the Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group. The album also featured guest spots from Common, Mos Def, Jay Dee, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Dice Raw, Beanie Segal, Jill Scott, Lady B, and Ursula Rucker.
