“The Movement, means a new work ethic to me - it's going from the industrial age to the individual spiritual age. I feel everyone should devote all their actions to all that is love, healing and pragmatic. We’re seeing the growing pains of this right now…the world is split…some people are fearful and fighting it with all their might… Rusted Root is trying ... Read more in Amazon's Rusted Root Store

Editorial Reviews

Famous for their unique fusion of acoustic, rock, and world music, a dynamite percussion section that draws from African, Latin American, and Native American influences and relentless touring, Rusted Root has sold more than 3 million albums worldwide and garnered legions of followers who call themselves "Root Heads". The band has toured with the likes of Toad the Wet Sprocket, Santana, The Grateful Dead, Dave Matthews Band, The Allman Brothers Band, HORDE Festival, and, perhaps most notably, the highly coveted support role on the landmark Jimmy Page/Robert Plant reunion tour. Rusted Root's music has been featured in movies and TV shows such as Twister, Mathilda, Home for the Holidays, Party of Five, Charmed, Homicide, Ice Age, and even on the 2012 Olympic Telecasts. In fact, NASA engineers chose Send Me On My Way as "wake up" music for the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity. Standout tracks include the catchy roots rock novelty "Monkey Pants", the cool Afro-Caribbean grooves of "Cover Me" and "Fossilman", and a rootsy ballad in the vein of the Rolling Stones "No Expectations".

5.0 out of 5 stars Rusted Root Does It Again November 19, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I've been a loyal fan of Rusted Root since When I Woke, after I heard "Drum Trip/Ecstasy" for the first time. I even went back and picked up Cruel Sun. There's no doubt that their music has changed and adjusted over the years as they've added and lost band members. Personally, I've liked all of their albums, and The Movement is no exception.

I've read a few reviews that compared The Movement to When I Woke. I can agree to a point in that the music sounds more tribal and stripped down than some of their other albums. If I had to place the music in relation to their other albums, I would put The Movement somewhere between When I Woke and Remember (an underrated album in my opinion).

Every song on The Movement is catchy, and I found myself singing along and tapping my foot in no time. The album kicks off with the very fun "Monkey Pants". This song is vintage Rusted Root with the voices of Michael, Patrick, and Liz complementing each other wonderfully. You can't help but smile listening to this song. "Cover Me Up" is another catchy song that demands you sing along. The title song could have come right off of When I Woke. The African/Caribbean drum beats are right out in front. "The Movement" slides right into "In Our Sun", which can best be described as a cross between "Drum Trip" and "People of My Village".

I could go on to review each song, but I'll just say that if you're a fan of Rusted Root, you'll love The Movement. And if you've never heard of Rusted Root...where have you been? Listen to this album, and hear the music from one of the most consistently creative bands around.

1.0 out of 5 stars What happened to these guys? August 19, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you liked the albums up to and including the self titled and thought that the only song on "Welcome to My Party" that was really good was the remake of a song from the past, and have not liked anything beyond, then keep reading. I have seen Rusted Root twice, and I have loved both shows. I got this with hope and left this with contempt. It is at my front door waiting for me to take it to get a trade in (or maybe I will get more enjoyment from it by throwing it at a passing car). Much like the Rusted Root of late, it is lackluster! It is telling me to never get another Rusted Root album again. Do not bother, the vibrant, amazing, upbeat and serious sound that once was, is sadly no more. I need to here some back to their roots (get it?) sounds before I will invest anymore time and money from these guys. I now send me on my way to hopefully greener pastures of music.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not their best April 20, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
When Rusted Root came out with When I Woke it was like nothing else at the time. The drum jam and the Afro-pop sound was energizing and just made you want to dance. It's about 20 years later and they can still rock you and write good songs but they just haven't got the same juice. Still it's worth buying and listening, but it may not get you up and dancing.

I have most of the Rusted Root albums and have been a fan since the early 90's. This album is very good and is similar to their first albums.
