I've been a long time fan of Wu-Tang since the first time I heard them and they captured my mind and heart with Liquid Swords. Since then I've bought nearly every solo cd and the work of wu-affiliates like Killah Priest, Cappadonna, and Killarmy. Inspectah Deck was always been a favorite of mine and I thought Uncontrolled Substance was an incredibly good, and very underrated cd. It quickly became a wu classic for me and hinted at an incredibly promising solo career.
With that said, let me be clear about this. The Movement is the worst cd I've bought in the last 5 years. The beats are laughably bad and most surprisingly, SO ARE DECK'S LYRICS. He went from 110% on my list to nearly unrecoverably wack with this CD.
The Deck of old makes no appearance here. Half the cd is him waxing poetic about how he's so non-pop and hardcore and down with the streets like he has something to prove and the other half is him rapping about jewelery, rims, and how good he thinks he is. He comes off sounding like a complete amateur.
I sat, painfully, trying to endure listening through this whole CD. All I could think of over and over again was that this was indeed a "movement", I just wish Deck woulda had the decency to flush afterward. The pathetic hook "WHO'S GOT IT, HUH, HUH?" perhaps alludes to someone stealing his toilet paper :(
There are endless cringe-worthy lines, messages, and hooks on this album. There are less than a handful of exceptions. City High and Get Right are both pretty good...because both are in the style of Uncontrolled Substance, except you can see some snuck in Movement wackness on Get Right's hook.

Since Wu-Tang's second album Forever the group has been on a downward slope, release mediocre albums both as a group and as solo artists with only a few exceptions (Ghostface's Supreme Clientel and GZA's Beneathe the Surface and Legend of a Liquid Sword). Most say it's the lack of RZA production on the albums, but even RZA's production has been awful as of late (World According to RZA). Finnally we come to this album. INS is my favorite MC in the Wu, but on this album he fails to deliver with the raw flow and lyrics that he is accustomed to. The beats are lackluster and do not have the gritty street edge that was the sound of hip-hop in the 90's. To anyone who believes that this is a good album all they have to do is listen to Guillotine (Swordz) off of Raekwon's Only Built for Cuban Linx. INS spits the best verse EVER. Once you hear his potential from that song and then listen to this garbage that he just made you will realize that the once dominating group known as the Wu-Tang is on their way out.

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.

This is a great solo wu album. The I Soldier has a couple of guests, but cuts up the rest of the album on his own. You get tired of some of the other wu members and how they have to have the rest of the clan on their disc to make it worth listening to. (Thank goodness for the Rza and other guests or the Gza's last solo "effort" would have been a complete waste) If I wanted to hear other mcs, I would have bought their albums.
Dope beats throughout, but not all of the tracks are classic. Bumpin Grindin and Shorty have dope beats, but the lyrics seem to tread into "watered down hip hop."
Overall, this album is tight. INS speaks the truth about too many other fake DJs and MCs who are in it for the wrong reasons. It's obvious Inspectah Deck knows what he's talking about. Vendetta is an instant classic. The rhymes in Framed are nasty. Really solid work. Definitely worth the wait. If you like that top 40 junk, then this album is not for you. The Movement is only for the real.

Deck's second effort is only a slight improvement on his previous release, Uncontrolled Substance. However it's not any worse than Meth or Raekwon's most recent albums. This is probably the only true Wu solo... conspicuously missing are any collabos with his Wu brethren and the famous W logo. Perhaps Rza has overlooked arguably the most unrealized potential from the Wu. That's the reason why he seems to save his best for other people's albums. Because he's more focused on his lyrics and not the rest of the production. But just remember this, Deck at his worst is iller than Nelly and P.Daddy at their best.
