Reviews:

''Phrenology'' is the fifth studio album by American hip hop band The Roots, released November 26, 2002 on Geffen Records. Following the breakthrough success of ''Things Fall Apart'' (1999), its release was highly anticipated and delayed, as recording took two years. A production of the Soulquarians collective, ''Phrenology'' features contributions by Cody ChesnuTT, Musiq Soulchild, Talib Kweli, and Jill Scott. The album is named after the discredited pseudoscience of phrenology, the study of head shapes to determine intelligence and character, which was used to rationalize racism during the 19th century in the United States. Its cover art was created by artist/printmaker Tom Huck. Primarily a hip hop album, ''Phrenology'' also contains musical elements of rock, jazz, and soul music. - Wikipedia
