All Souled Out officially introduced Pete Rock & CL Smooth to the hip hop listening community, and it is hard to imagine a stronger or more confident introduction. The “Good Life” starts things off with its perfect mix of horns and catchy bassline, while CL lays his trademark flow while speaking of the pros and cons of wealthiness. Next up is the standout “Mecca & the Soul Brother” which shows the duo at their best – hard pounding drums, signature horns (which will become Pete’s trademark) and CL on the mic. By the time the smooth flute of “Go with the Flow” comes in it’s clear why this is one of the most important EP releases of the 90s. Don’t forget “The Creator” as well!
