This is an awesome Ghostface album that is not to be missed by any fan of the Wu-Tang Clan. Lyrically the whole album is on point. Ghost really shines as he tears every track to shreds, and his lyrics are reminiscent his older albums Ironman and Supreme Clientele. The cameos on this album are fantastic as well. Raekwon has some nice origional material on the three tracks he is on, my favorite being "The Watch", and Method Man seriously kills it on "Drummer". Trife da God & Wigs both impressed me on this album, and are in my opinion better represented here than on "More Fish".
Unfortunately, there are a few things that I was slightly disappointed in. First of all, theres a couple songs where there is some recycled lyrics, namely "Hidden Darts", "CheChe la Ghost (Remix)", and "9mm" (which is a remix of "9 milli bros.". Really this doesnt hurt the album, because Ghost spits some origional stuff on those tracks too. "When You Walk" is a song that I already had, downloaded from the offical website, but its still a 5 star track so it doesnt hurt either. On the track "The Sun", Slick Rick appears in his old school style form, but RZA says like 4 bars...bummer. Cappadonna's lyrics weren't that great on "Odd Couple" IMHO, which is too bad because that is the only thing holding that beat, and Ghost, back from a 5 star song. I also could have done without Keyshia Cole on "Mama", the remix of "Momma" on the "Fishscale" album.
Overall this album is better than the last, and it seems Ghost cant be stopped, even if hes underrated.
