This album had got some very unique production to it and displays that true Wu sound for anyone who's a fan. I believe this to be one of the best albums from the Wu camp and even if you aren't a fan one thing for sure is that this sound was and is different and The GZA's intelligent too.
Album Highlights: The entire album.
Production: Thumbs up. Once again, The Rza cooks up another production masterpiece.
Lyrics and Subject Matter: Thumbs up.
Originality: Thumbs up.
The Last Word: Other GZA albums after this have not lived up to this release. GZA released this at a good time in hip hop. Hip Hop music right now needs releases like this. Overall, this album is BRILLIANT. It's the classic Wu-Tang sound in all of its glory, and for that I strongly recommend that you purchase this album.
As an emcee, Gza seems to make other rappers on his tracks better lyrically. Notably Inspectah Deck and Method Man. On the albums best song "Cold World", The inspectah virtually outshines Gza which is a complete shock considering how sick Gza's verse is. The inspectah seems to just be a bit hungrier,"No time to freeze undercovers roll up in grand prix and seize packages and pocket the currency, clicks control strips full clips are sprayed, Yellow tape barricades sidewalks where bodies lay". Aside from whose better on the track, the two make the best tag team wu record of all time.Read more ›
