Like fine wine, this duo get better. As an avid fan of this duo, this album comes at a time when Hip Hop, in my opinion has lost its direction somewhat. These two show what can be achieved when Hip Hop is taken back to the essence. This may be an old album in terms of the tracks on this cd, but I dare you to find anything today that even comes close. Pete Rocks remix skills are second to none and Cl's flow is to quote "smooth & sequential". Favorite track, "lots of lovin'". This to me is what remixing a track is all about. Compare it to the original, which was good by all means and what you have is a kicking track that appeals to both the ladies and the homeboys. The beat sits at a pace that flows and CL's lyrics, in comparison with the original are more direct and hardcore but still maintaining that element that is unique to CL. Every track on this album is a killer. From Take you there to Get on the mike. A lot can be learnt from this compilation. Perhaps record industry bosses will take note and stop filtering the below par compilations they do release and give the real followers of this genre what they want, or even more the point, what they need!

Each track is impossible to find on a cd and can only be heard on 12" vinyl. Every track is carefully crafted by the #1 soulbrother /chocalate boy wonder/producer extraordinare-Pete Rock. Throw these classic joints in your whip, cd player and there is no track searching with this album as cl flows over Pete's Treat's. When you sit there and listen to this think to yourself that you will NEVER hear music like this again as the hip hop game has forever been changed due to the mass media and dare I say whack mc's such as puff, jay z, and all the other's. You all know them I don't need to name names. If you ask the average (rap) fan or casual music listener about hip hop the above media clowns will be noted but you will NEVER EVER hear them mention Pete Rock and CL Smooth. I am very thankful for that as I hope they are slept on forever so they will keep making hype tracks.

Pete Rock and CL, it gets no better, that said this one comes up a little short, but if you truly appreciate the boys as I do maybe it doesn't matter ?
My reasons for liking this album are mainly tracks: 1, 2, and 4. Very solid variations of songs I loved, maybe even improvements ?
If this cd had set me back a normal $15-18, I'd leave it there and hit it with 4 stars, but at [the item price]for 3 songs, well you catch my drift, it's a little steep.
The other productions while interesting don't improve on their predecessors in any substancial way the least of which is TROY.
I have to say when I heard this version of TROY it sorta bummed me out and here's why: I'm gonna go bold here and say that the original version of TROY is one of, if the not the all time greatest hip hop songs ever put to tape. That's a big statement and not one I make lightly.
Be that as it may, the version here is a throw away, it definately doesn't do justice to the orignal and mind you this is a song I like a lot so even if it was close I'd swing for it.
I wonder if the artists, or anyone who worked with them ever check out these comments ? If they do I'd be really interested in hearing what they have to say, what was the motivation behind this ? Maybe I'm taking it all too seriously, but their body of work is so small it tends to invite hyper-sensitive analysis because there just isn't very much of it.
As much as I like the music of Pete and CL the price on this one sets the expectation very high, and at the end of the day I suspect it's a case of two really talented guys screwing around, which again, at $15 bucks would be one thing, at [item price]+ S & H it's another.
