Not all the MCs unfortunately are up to par with each other though. Kool G. Rap has a tight hook on the opening track "Real Life", but the rest of the rhyme is a little weak. G.O.D. Pt. III's track is pretty nice. Hostyle's "Victory or Defeat" is not very good and Goodie Mob's track is terrible in spite of a catchy hook. "Heart of the Assassin" starts out bangin' but quickly dwindles (luckily it isn't too long). Dilated Peoples prove themselves worthy of their rep more on this one track than they did on their entire debut album (the lackluster 'The Platform'). Xzibit puts in a pretty impressive performance on "You Better Believe It" and Kurupt brings the heat as always on "When the Pain Inflict". Longtime Muggs affiliates Cypress Hill and Everlast both get individual tracks that are somewhat disappointing, but not too bad.
My favorite track on the whole album -- the GZA's "When the Fat Lady Sings", it pulses with a jolting bassline and a killer string arrangement overlayed by weird samples topped off with the best rap on the whole album.
Overall, Muggs lays down some bangin' joints, but the rappers have little inspiration and make about half the tracks fall short
In my opinion, the first two tracks are the worst, Everlast's lyrics aren't up to much but his flow is nice and the Self Scientific is a good song to end with, not counting the bonus tracks. The Cypress Hill song is better than the ones I've heard off their album, its more like one off Temples Of Boom or IV.
The most outstanding songs from the album are Gza's When The Fat Lady Sings, Kurupt and Roscoe's When The Pain Inflict, Dilated People's Suckers Are Hidin', and Cypress Hill's Don't Trip.
