Pretty much the only flaw this CD has in my opinion, which is the same complaint that most of the people criticize this album for is the editing of some tracks. If not for that, this CD would get 5 stars. This album is obviously not as good as Liquid Swords and is better than Beneath the Surface (which is still in my mind a solid album). This album brings back some grimy beats with exceptional lyrics, which is nothing more than expected from GZA. The best lyricist in the Clan other than, dare I say Masta Killa. Best tracks on this piece are Auto Bio, Animal Planet, Fam(despite being edited), Fame, Highway Robbery(chorus does not fit song, ill other than that) Silent, Sparring Minds, Stay In Line, and What You Know About. Pick this up if you want some real Hip Hop, not any of that 50 Cent/G-Unit garbage. Must buy for any Wu fan.
