i think this cd is awful. i have loved wu for a long time (at least old wu tang, they have been in the process of selling out for at least a few years now in my opinion), and my favorites have always been Gza (clearly) and inspecta. For some reason, inspecta is only good on wu tang albums and other guest spots (above the clounds w/ gang starr, etc). While the first album "uncontrollable substance" was only mediocre, it had at least 4 good tracks on it. I'd say this one has zero.
these are the main problems:
1. the beasts are uninspiring, they may have taken 5 minutes a piece to make.
2. the beats are on some tracks far too soft. when i hear a cd i don't want to be able to picture a rapper in a studio rapping, i expect a production.
3. the theme is really a joke. i mean i agree that mainstreme sellout rap is bunk, but the way inspecta protrays that with his lyrics is cliche and uninspiring.
the only reason to buy this album is to read the halarious comments inspecta writes inside the coverslip. well, i mean, i hope they're meant to be funny, but the truth is, inspecta was probably serious when he wrote them. if you need more wu tang, buy another gza cd before this one.
