5.0 out of 5 stars Once again, a collector's dream. March 1, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After purchasing So Full of Love/Identify Yourself, buying this CD was a no-brainer. Again, two very outstanding albums on a single CD. Some of the O'jays best vocals and arrangement. Buying these two CDs was a real bargain, in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing short of majestic. March 13, 2006
Format:Audio CD
By the time the two albums featured on this CD were released in 1980 and 1982 the urban R&B market was going through many changes--thankfully, The O'Jays were able to maintain their high-quality output throughout the decade with superb tracks like "I Like To See Us Get Down", "Don't Walk Away Mad", "Your Body's Here With Me", "Girl, Don't Let It Get You Down", "To Prove My Love" and "Once Is Not Enough" being just as good as any of the group's previous Philadelphia International recordings. In retrospect, these two albums provided the O'Jays with a smooth transition from the 1970s to the '80s.

4.0 out of 5 stars Double CD Yet Finding The O'Jays In A Massive Transition September 21, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Interestingly enough this is one of those CD's that brings on a personal memory for me. But it's very germane to the album so I'll mention it here. It was a Christmas present in 1999. It was time when indeed "the year 2000" was on the way,and people were wondering about something called Y2K. So in all honesty this doubled as a message for the new years. It was around this time I'd started getting heavy into my Philly Soul phase-Teddy Pendergrass,the O'Jays and all of that. So this double set,not too easy to find even when it was in print was the perfect place to go. These albums were recorded in the early 1980's,a period when the anti disco freeze out was creating odd musical mutations. The O'Jays,who made genuine group style Philly Soul could barely get onto radio. Whereas two other guys from Philly named Hall & Oates (who by the way completely disapproved of the "disco sucks" ethic) were heard everywhere with their own hybrid of the sound. Meanwhile PIR was starting to slowly fade away as well. So these albums represent all this on different ends of the spectrum.

The first album is 'The Year 2000'. Now the title track,with it's "space Philly" flavor was basically MY song for...well the turn of the millennium. It expresses what I and probably many people were wondering. Would world peace exist in some form during this big change of time? Well it did-wasn't to last long bt did. I don't know if it's the power of this song alone or the modern style Chicago blues hybrid of "The Answer In You but....aside from the dynamic chords and harmonies of the ballad "Once Is Not Enough" but much of this rest of the album is almost too predictable and nondescript. It sounds about eight years out of place in terms of production.
