5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars but get the albums instead 25 Aug 2005
By ctrx - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This kind of sounds like a little bit of industry rule #4,080 to me (Rhino Records?) but this disc contains a lot of their classic material. But, coming from a guy who claims that PR+CLS might be the best hip hop duo ever, I always had a problem with a "Best Of" album because their three albums, "All Souled Out", "Mecca and the Soul Brother", and "The Main Ingredient" were kind of best of compilations in themselves. As demonstrated on their "Rare Tracks" set, Pete and CL were so particular about what went onto their albums and fit with the flow that some good cuts were even cut off their albums. The only reason a real Pete Rock & CL Smooth fan would get this is for completeness, because it has a few tracks from the "Poetic Justice" and "Menace II Society" soundtracks and a song from Pete's original "Soul Survivor" album. I also kind of find the tracklisting questionable. Almost all the songs from "All Souled Out" (a six song EP) are included. It doesn't really span their careers properly, I don't think. They include songs like "Searching", a fine song by all means but not their best, and omit "The Main Ingredient" and "If It Ain't Rough It Ain't Right". Bottomline, buy the albums before this, because every song on the three albums combined is amazing, I say that "Mecca and the Soul Brother" and "The Main Ingredient" are the best hip hop LPs ever. This is still 5 stars, because hey, it's Pete Rock and CL Smooth, but buy the albums instead.

CL Smooth "American Me" EP coming late 2005/early 2006, Shaman Work Records.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best rap duo of all time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 28 Oct 2005
By Lamont - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth are the best rap duo ever, especially their first 3 albums (All Souled Out, Mecca And The Soul Brother & The Main Indregident/Which I owned all 3) For this album, you should've add these tracks to this album(The Basement, Escape, The Main Indriegent, In The Flesh & The Creator/my personal favorites)! You really need to buy those three albums, seriously! It's really worth it! Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth need to make more albums & get back into the rap game! We need more music from you both!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes....Classic Material But...... 17 Feb 2005
By 7th Angl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"Good Life" features some great tracks, including a couple of rare soundtrack joints, but its simply not sufficient for true fans, since it is merely culled material from their two albums and EP. Purchase the albums instead and indulge...rather than gratify the record label by buying this instead.

For the uninitiated however, a definite and accurate estimation of the greatness of Pete Rock and CL Smooth.

4.0 out of 5 stars rock and rap confidential tell us 22 Aug 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Pete Rock's dad was a DJ and his record collection provided the raw material for his son the sampler. The anthemic "They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)" begins with a Tom Scott horn line mixed into the Association's "Cherish," all over a drum loop nicked from James Brown. Rock sets the table for C.L. Smooth, whose voice allows him to deliver penetrating takes on love, race, and religion.
