Pete Rock loves horns the way other DJs and producers love drums. It's this obsession with funky horn breaks that sets Pete Rock and . Smooth apart from regular hip-hop bassheads. With its crucial James Brown breaks layered between trumpet and sax loops, coupled with the laid-back vocals of Smooth and Rock, Mecca and the Soul Brother-their first full-length-struts back and forth on that line between rap and soul. Rock's production style is peerless, funky on "If It Ain't Rough, It Ain't Right" and sexy on "Lots of Lovin'. After hearing The Main Ingredient, I decided to pick up some of their earlier stuff, which led me to their masterpiece, Mecca and the Soul Brother, which was more polished in nearly every meaningful aspect. This CD is one of the few I can listen to front to back with absolutely NO filler.
