    One of my favorite fucking albums ever. The perfect album to throw on at a party, it's so catchy.

    CL Smooth has to be one of the best MC's ive heard. Tongue twisting rhymes, and a flow that can't be perfectly imitaded.

    Classic

    Great album. The legendary Pete Rock and C.L. on their best album IMO. Definitely worth picking up

    Yeah bump up one of the best albums ever. Should be a staplehold in everyone's top 10 or 15 albums.

    pete rock's beats get very repetitive very quickly... so if you don't like the loop that he uses at the start, the track gets very old... cl is awesome throughout though...

    album is a classic for sure, i prefer some songs to others but it's pretty damn near flawless.

    I like the skit that comes after They Reminisce Over You song that has some dude rhyming while somebody else is beatboxing. That dude was flowing. I think he's in the group Ini that had the song Fakin Jax. Mecca And The Soul Brother album is a classic. Straighten It Out song is my favorite on the album. CL's rhymes are great.
