De La Soul's second album, originally released in 1991, was initially received poorly by the press and their fans due to its immediate rejection of the "daisy-age" image created by their debut LP. In the years since, however, it has come to be accepted as a stone cold classic that may even surpass the feel-good jams of Three Feet High And Rising with its expansive scope and more diverse subject matter such as drug addiction, incest, poseurs, in addition to the more expected, light-hearted material. Prince Paul's production is, again, nothing short of brilliant and De La Soul brings the flow that has made them, rightfully, hip-hop legends. "A Roller Skating Jam Named Saturdays," "Ring, Ring, Ring (Ha Ha Hey)" and "Keepin' the Faith" are all certified classics in the De La Soul catalog.
