If you approach 'Petestrumentals' as a song-oriented pop album, you may feel disappointed. Only two tracks ('Cake' and 'Nothin' Lesser - Jamie's Mix') feature MCs. If you approach the album as a radical work of sonic architecture, you may also feel disappointed, since Rock's relatively old-school sensibility isn't likely to make you hear music in a completely new way. But if you approach 'PeteStrumentals' on its own terms - as a laid-back collection of atmospheric beats ideal for late-night chilling or freestyling over - then you may enjoy Pete Rock's soulful funk-jazz grooves, which are first rate for this type of recording.
