The Wu-Tang warrior's second solo joint is so conceptually huge, only somebody who's been high every day for a decade could have imagined it: hip-hop album as science-fiction double-feature as celebrity parade as horror movie as multi-layered masquerade as an endlessly Baroque flow of spiels and skits, hallucinatory fantasy, and killer-bee menace. The romantic strains of Tical have been replaced by pure, sweaty sex, and Meth's image transformation from laidback muscle to bloodthirsty cyborg (with a phone book's worth of guest stars) just means he compacts his flow more tightly. The production is the Wu standard of berserk little loops and spare boom-bap, though RZA's tracks are head and shoulders above those of his disciples. --Douglas Wolk

Listen! I think all of you who give this album bad marks are one-track-minded peoples just like Sally in Diamond D. joint because you expected to see a '36 chambers' kinda LP from the Mef. But let me ask another question: what the hell is gonna happen to hip hop if ain't nobody try to make something new? Answer me please. This album is ill: just listen to 'Dangerous grounds', the Left Eye collabo 'Cradle rock' or 'Spazzola'.
You wrote there's too many skits on the album. And what's the problem with that? I think Ed Lover skit is mad and Chris Rock skit is ill... so, what you talking about? I don't feel you.
I think the whole structure of the album is ill: Pre-Millennium, space-type, Satanic, Apocalyptic, hardcore, underground .... And who the hell was gonna make it? No doubt, it was Mef aka The Ticallion Stallion. I think, y'all just can't feel it 'though this album is mad ill from beginning to end. You mad 'cause Mef made collabos with Janet Jackson, Donald Trump and D'Angelo? Eff y'all! It's still phat!
And about the productions: rugged -n- raw! Just think about 'Perfect world' (which is a breath-takingly shocking Satanic Apocallyptic Next-Millennium [or next-next-millennium] Epic), 'Judgement day', 'Cradle rock' (damn! that's off the meter!), 'Dangerous grounds' (Street rips it...).
Then another jewels: 'Retro Godfather' which bring you back to the origins, the roots with a song like we was in a late 70s or the early 80s. 'Party crusher' which is like a early 80s smoothe party joint. 'Break ups to make ups' which is a laid-back type of joint with a diss to the ex-es.Read more ›
...then the album starts.
"Judgement Day" has its great moments, let there be no question about that. But it also has some moments that just make me wish he'd waited some more to come with a new album. I have several problems with this record. Let's start from the top:
1) TOOOOO MANY GUESTS -- I realize that every Wu "solo" joint is like a family reunion, but when Streetlife is on almost every cut? Nah. It ain't all good. Especially since he sounds like a Meth wannabe 95% of the time.
2) THIS ISN'T A WU ALBUM -- The RZA did what, three tracks! The rest is handled by Wu trainees or outside producers who, while they definitely make worthwhile contributions, take away from the "Wu-" ness of the album.
3) TOOOOOOO MANY SKITS -- Skits are outmoded in hip-hop. All they do is get in the way and force people to hit the skip button all to often. And when the skits aren't even funny? That's even WORSE.
But back to the actual album. The highlights are most definitely standout tracks when it comes to Method Man. "Retro Godfather" is fantastic, with a bongo-syncopated melody underscoring '70s-style soul musings. "Torture" is just as dark as anything found on "Tical," and equally as good, "Sweet Love" is exactly the opposite, with Meth, Cappadonna and Street swapping sex tales, and the title track, even though it has more of a techno beat than hip-hop, is really good.
But then there are the lowlights. Okay, "Makeups 2 Breakups" is an alright song, but it's not a Method Man song.Read more ›
