One of the cornerstone albums of alternative rap's second wave, Things Fall Apart was the point where the Roots' tremendous potential finally coalesced into a structured album that maintained its focus from top to bottom. If the group sacrifices a little of the unpredictability of its jam sessions, the resulting consistency more than makes up for it, since the record flows from track to track so effortlessly.

The art on the cover of Led Zeppelin's 1969 debut album is unmistakable: it's the iconic photograph taken May 6, 1937 of the Hindenburg bursting into flames while trying to dock in New Jersey. The following eight examples are from artists who followed Led Zeppelin's lead and reused preexisting, unrelated photos for album covers.

The classic Roots LP that is perhaps their best loved work and it's easy to see why. It has litle of the difficult lyrics and dark music of later genius like Game Theory and is not too experimental for the more narrow minded hip hop fans like Phrenology was. Things Fall Apart was a turning point for the Roots, the record where they figured out what kind of band they could be. Both its themes and its eclectic mix of sounds resonate in the current moment. In 1999, the Roots were in limbo. Reflecting these tensions, the Roots opened their fourth studio album, Things Fall Apart, with dialogue from a scene from Spike Lees 1990 film, Mo Better Blues, in which characters Bleek Gilliam and Shadow Henderson-played by Denzel Washington and Wesley Snipes, respectively-debate the state of jazz music.

I remember they released this issue right after Record Store Day 2013 without the nummering for a lower price.

I believe they pressed enough to move this album to platinum status. How many it needed to get there, I don't know. Sorry.
I have 6013 cannot find anywhere online that states the number of presses
I got #387. I read there were only 4000. I suppose that was inaccurate.
Limited to how many? I have number 5218 - so its obviously not exactly scarce! Anyone know?
Mine is unnumbered but absolutely identical to the RSD release otherwise. I think the only thing limited about these is the presence of the computer stamp.
