Ground breaking songs such as "the message" are paired with poor tracks leading to an uneven album.

A bit of filler on the back half, but holy hell is this a great record.

1982!!! That's all I gotta say.

Well ok, I'll say more: Holy Cow... this song is from 1982... it definitely sounds old school, but WAAAY ahead of it's time. Run-DMC didn't sound this good in 87.

C'mon. There's some classic/great tracks on here (message,Scorpio,it's nasty) but dreamin and you are, are just horrible. Stevie wonder they were not. Singles wise they were up there with the best of the 80s, album wise no.

This is old school hip-hop in a nutshell. I can't stop dancing.

I love this album. It is so innocent, so pure. The roots of hip hop.

Cutting right to the chase: this is the best hip hop album I've heard, and it's often considered one of the best by critics.
