While it's pretty fair to say that the Digables would never have existed if not for the whole Native Tongue posse, they managed to take the aesthetic to a new level. This first LP's an early 90s classic that set a new standard for post-Daisy Age jazzy hip hop, with breezy jazzy production, and a mellow laid back rhyme style that dug into the abstract lyrical realm more than any of their predecessors. Still sounds fresh today, too. Includes "Where I'm From", "It's Good To Be Here", "What Cool Breezes Do", "Time
& Space (A New Refutation Of)", "Rebirth Of Slick (Cool Like Dat)", "Escapism (Gettin Free)", "Pacifics", "Appointment At The Fat Clinic", "Swoon Units", "Last Of The Spiddyocks", "Examination Of What", "Nickel Bags", and "Jimmi Diggin Cats".
