5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Old School Albums ever! August 2, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This features one of the three kings of old school rap Rob Base and his awesome partner who is known as DJ E-Z Rock. This album features two of the most popular songs in the eighties "It Takes Two" and "Joy and Pain". The other two kings of old school rap are Tone Loc and his awesome album "Loc-ed After Dark" and Maestro Fresh-Wes with his bass pumping ablbum "Symphony in Effect". This album is an absolute must, if you are a old school rap enthusiast!

4.0 out of 5 stars Skip the digital download...get the CD May 31, 2013
By Caeldo
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Just received my "It Takes Two" CD and it is just what I was looking for! Years ago, I had the cassette version and was looking to replace it. However, the downside of the purchase was Amazon's offer of a "free rip." Unfortunately, the digital download offered was only 2 re-recorded versions of the rap "It Takes Two" and NOTHING else! And to make matters worse, the digital version sounds like Rob Base must have been 40 at the time of the recording. Why isn't Amazon offering the full album as a digital download? I have no idea. But, if you are looking for the original version of this album, get the CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old School Music March 26, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was my first time using Amazon. I was all pumped up since I was attending the recent DOUG E FRESH concert and wanted to get my party started. I couldnt find his cd on line but I will keep checking. In the meantime I came across another old school group ROB BASE and received my cd in no time. Thank you Amazon!

DAMN! I'm astounded that almost a quarter of a century has passed since the release of Rob Base and D.J. E-Z Rock's "It Takes Two."

It seems like yesterday that I was listening to "Get On the Dance Floor" on the radio, which introduced me to and subsequently got me hooked on the sound of Base and Rock. I've heard that sampled (along with everything else from the 60s through to the 90s) in today's "music," so just thinking about how influential this album was and remains is really saying something.

While the title song and "Joy and Pain" seem to be the only two tracks ever played from this album, "Get On the Dance Floor" along with "Keep It Goin' Now" and "Don't Sleep On It" are just as worthy of equal attention ... if not more. It was a joy (pun intended) to already know half the album from listening to the radio back in the late-1980s and familiarize myself with the rest of the tracks today. (It's too bad radio is so corporatized today that the same handful of tracks from the same handful of "singers" are played over and over and over again, depriving today's kids of the opportunity to get to know other tracks from an album - especially the tracks that don't have that all-important video to promote them).

I love the current euphemism of "old school" as opposed to using the term "oldies" when describing old music, but I don't care how old "It Takes Two" is, it has been a staple of my music collection since its release and hearing the songs now in my early-30s makes me love it all the more and really long for the days of actual music (even if there was sampling in the songs, like here, the people still could actually sing). - Donna Di Giacomo

5.0 out of 5 stars Energetic August 10, 2006
Format:Audio CD
When I used to Break this was a high influence on what I would hit the ground for. Very energetic music that helps keep the spirit of HIP HOP alive. I could listen to this everyday and it still wouldn't get old.

1.0 out of 5 stars re-recorded...by who? - get the original cut November 2, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
This is one of my favs from back in the day. but this is either an atrocious edit or a bad cover. either way, do yourself a favor and get a different version.

Great CD, bringing back the vintage rap that it is. I remembered how good the other tracks sounded to as I stepped back into yesteryear.

I don't know what happened to the remaster but it sounds too slow and I think there are some parts of the track missing at the end.

The style is within the tightly rapped cover of the music disc. You just don't find that kind of wrapping
for cds anymore. The fold is nearly the corner. Read more
