When this album came out, I was barely a teenager. I purchased the tape (which is arranged differently than the CD) and I've been jammin' ever since. The good tracks are REALLY good while the bad tracks are REALLY bad. Songs like "Keep On Movin" and "Back To Life" are classics that will still get parties jumping today. Versatile tracks like "Fairplay" give you more mellow grooves to cool out to or jam to. The shortcomings of this CD/tape come when Jazzie B tries to sing on tracks like "Holdin' On". Man oh man, that was pretty bad. When I throw 80's parties, I always play "Feeling Free" to get the people going during an intermission. I remember the impact this album had on me back then and it still has that same impact at some parties today. You could party back then without having to refer to drugs, money, rims, or hoes because of albums like these and I miss that. This album is more than worth the money. Pick it up, you'll be glad you did.
