Greede, co-produced by Steve G., and Mike S. for J. Greede Productions Inc. All of the tracks recorded and mixed by Nelson “DJ Nyce” Corea. All of these album contributors deserve credit for their exceptional contributions as they all add to the overall excellence of the album. The beats are insanely smoking, the lyrics are as hot as it gets, and the production, and sound quality is phenomenal. “All About The Music Vol. 1” is a compilation album; however, it steers clear of the common compilation pitfalls and avoids sounding “the same” through every track. The music is diverse enough for each song to be unique, with its own flavor & identity, yet the music on the album flows perfectly from song to song. Nothing ever sounds out of place on the entire album.
The album starts off with “It’s Gow’Down” by D. One. The song is an incredible introduction that serves its purpose well. D. One delivers a wide range of skills that easily appease fans, getting them ready for the explosion of talent they are facing consistently in every song. All of the songs featured on the album are equally as good as their neighboring track, the talent or quality of music never dips for a second; however, like any album there are a few songs that do stand out from the rest. “Leave It To Me” by Paris Azelle feat. Evik, “Follow Me” by D. One, and “Be That Girl” by Mohogany feat. D. One are among the albums standout songs, and most notably sure shot singles.
“All About The Music Vol. 1” lacks low points, and weak spots. Some critics might suggest that the album could be longer, and free from interludes; however, in the complete package everyone is more than satisfied.
