5.0 out of 5 stars ATrue Classic ! January 26, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This CD will sound great 20 years from today. I has everything it takes to become a classic - great beats, great vocals, great sound, and creative lyrics. At least 7 tracks can compete for "the best track" title - Thought Process, Dirty South, Soul Food, I didn't ask to come, Call Therapy, The day After, and Guess Who. And the rest are excellent too...
Goodie Mob manage to sound hardcore without loosing the funk that is so appealling in the Atlanta scene. In my mind they even out-funk the great Outkast crew !
So, if I need a CD I know will make me feel great whenever it is played, this is certainly one. HIGHLY recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dirty, Dirty, Dirty South January 7, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Beats that bounce, Rap that flows, and these cats can sing too! The only guys that can rival Outkast for the south Goodie MOb meshes hard rapping verses, fast singing/rap verses (kinda like how bone thugs rap) with tight corus' and bumpin beats. Check out their singing skills on the first track "Free". Best tracks and classics for sure: "Cell therapy", "Soul Food" and "Live at the O.M.N.I". If you like their 2nd effort "Still standing" than you'll definitely this first album effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the top 10 albums to come out of the South February 24, 2000
Format:Audio CD
When you think of Southern rock, you think Lynyrd Skynyrd. When you think Southern blues, you think of Robert Johnson. When you think of Southern rap, you should think of Goodie MOb (yes, that "O" is supposed to be capitalized). Unfortunately, all too many people think about Juvenile and Master P. These guys are makin' money, but their lyrics have no substance. Sure "Back that a** up" is a clever catch phrase, but staying power? Nah. Them boys are gonna fall off any day now. The Goodie MOb proved to everyone that they were here to stay with their debut album, "Soul Food." This was the pinnacle of Organized Noize production with maybe the exception of Outkast's "ATLiens" album. The musicality evoked warm summer evenings, street corners and Sunday afternoon barbecues all at the same time, while Cee-Lo, Gipp, T-Mo and Khujo held down the lyrics with an iron fist, speaking eloquently and at some length (the songs on this mofo are loooong! I loved it!) about day-to-day life and just stayin' alive in general. What I enjoyed so much was the inclusion of spirituality in their lyrics, but not so much that it weighed down the record. Just enough to give a clear message that Goodie wasn't all about bangin' and slangin'. This is a fantastic record, and anyone who considers themselves true hip-hop fans should have it in their collection.

Format:Audio CD
Onstage at First Avenue Nightclub in Minneapolis, Goodie Mob's Cee-Lo Green lifts up his shirt to reveal a spare tire's worth of brown skin hanging over his jeans as, accompanied by a live band and with a big smile on his face, he rap croons the chorus of the group's hit single: "Come and get yo' soul food, well, well / Good old-fashioned soul food, all right.". Ten minutes later, the playful moment is long gone. After asking if there are and "revolutionaries of the mind" in the house, Cee-Lo delivers a blistering sermon disguised as an a cappella rap to the integrated all ages crowd: "Yeah, it's true, Uncle Sam wants you to be a devil too..... There's evil white folk just like there's evil black folk. All you soldiers, take responsibility for your own actions. White people know more about black history than you do; whose fault is that?..... We ain't natural born kilas, we are a spiritual people."

The members of Goodie Mob are part of a new generation of black musicians who make no distinction between hip hop and rhythm & blues in their music, a generation able to see the failed hopes of the civil rights movement and the gangsta backlash it generated through the same historical prism. The result is Soul Food, a debut that opens and closes with optimistic gospel based anthems sandwiched around tracks that range from "Guess Who", an unabashed homage to mothers, to "Live At The O.M.N.I.", a raging screed against black cops and other "devils" in the "system". Songs are rapped or sung as the occasion warrants, and are backed by a blend of sampled beats and live instrumentation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Atlanta's Finest.. January 28, 2006
Format:Audio CD
"Soul Food" is an amazing record by one of the South's best Hip Hop Groups..Goodie Mob. As a member of the Dungeon Family, they are familiar to the average hip-hop fans as "the guys on the outkast tracks"....However, these guys have a style all there own. I consider Goodie Mob to be very conscious rappers...which means that they're very real and talk about things that actually matter. They get beyond popular hip hop topics such as Cash, Women, Power, and Drugs...it's actual intelligent hip hop, which is rare these days. So, esspecially if you're into Down-South Rap with plenty of Country drawl...Pick up "Soul Food" From Goodie Mob. Also Check out "Still Standing".

5.0 out of 5 stars One of hip hop's greatest albums October 20, 2005
By ALLEN B
Format:Audio CD
As you can see, most ppl that reviewed this album hailed it as a classic. This album is nothing short of a classic. Altho it was heavinly inspired by their Southern roots, this album was loved by everyone across the country...This album got love from NYC, Philly, the midwest, California, etc. You get the point, its a universal classic....

Not much more I can really say about this album....All the beats are on point. If you like Outkasts' earlier work, you'll love this album. Organzied Noize handles the production which is damm near flawless. The Goodie Mob come hungry on this album...All their rhymes are on point and introspective...They truly put all their heart and soul into this one and came out a success...

This album truly is 'soul food'...Its great for the soul and if you're a fan of music in general...
