Avis sur l’album

It would have been hard to match the artistic success of their debut EP on a full-length recording, but Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth did just that on Mecca and the Soul Brother, and they did so in the most unlikely way of all after the succinctness of All Souled Out — by coming up with a sprawling, nearly 80-minute-long album on which not a single song or interlude is a throwaway or a superfluous piece. Granted, 80 minutes is a long stretch of time for sustained listening, but the music is completely worthy of that time, allowing the duo to stretch out in ways that their EP rendered impossible. Again, the primary star is Pete Rock's production acumen, and he ups the ante of rock-solid drums, steady cymbal beats, smooth-rolling bass, and fatback organ, not to mention his signature horn loops. C.L. Smooth is the perfect vocal match for the music. He is maybe one of the few MCs capable of rapping a fairly credible love song, as he does on "Lots of Lovin'." "They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)," a tribute to friend and Heavy D. dancer Trouble T-Roy, who was accidentally killed, packs a poignant emotional weight, but it is Smooth's more direct and conscientious — and frequently autobiographical — side which ultimately carries the album lyrically. The songs are connected and the album is propelled forward by Rock's quick, soul-tight interludes; these are usually bits of old R&B and soul tunes but sometimes they're spoken pieces or spontaneous, freestyle sessions. These interludes provide a sort of dense spiritual tone and resonance in the album that is not religiously based at all, but fully hip-hop based, emerging from the urban altars that are the basements and rooftops of the city.

Avis des utilisateurs

un grand album de rap new yorkais

Sorti la même année que "The chronic" (by Dr Dre), l'album est passé un peu inaperçu en 1992. Pourtant "Mecca and the soul brother" est un petit chef d'oeuvre du rap new yorkais des annèes 90.
Rien à jeter malgré la longueur de l'album (presque 80 minutes). Une homgénéité parfaite due à la rhytmique jazzy omniprésente. Un flow des plus agréables. Les meilleurs morceaux : Act like you know / Can't front on me / Return of the Mecca / Straighten it out / The basement / They reminisce over you et les autres ... A écouter les yeux fermés. Une valeur sûre.

Un Must!

Pure merveille du duo mythique Pete rock-CL smooth.
We reminisce about you!

DOPE

G mic ravale tes mots et implose s'il te plais.

Biographie

Genre : Hip-hop/Rap

Années d’activité : '90s, '00s

As one-half of the classic-era hip-hop duo Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth, C.L. Smooth was responsible for penning some of hip-hop's timeless classics, including "The Creator," "Straighten It Out," "Take You There," and the landmark "They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)." His smooth voice, effortless flow, and conscious lyrics were easily recognizable signatures of Smooth's style, and with Pete Rock's soulful and funky backing, they distinguished themselves as a formidable duo even amid the flourishing...
