Lyrics and Subject Matter: Thumbs up, but slightly.
Originality: Thumbs in the middle.
The Last Word: Here's the deal. Is the album a CLASSIC? Sadly no, but the songs described in the album highlights section are classics. This album is NOT up there with the likes of Raekwon and GZA's first albums. It's a decent first album from Meth, and it's strong enough for a four star rating. Overall, I recommend this for the fans of the early Wu-Tang, when they were clearly in their primes. However, even with the platinum and award winning success of this album, with a little more planning and effort, this album could've been much better.

Perhaps the albums difining moment is on "Bring the Pain", the simple humming with the signature Rza cords make it an excellent beat allowing Meth to spit fire over the track. This is Meth in top-top form where it is more apparent he is a gifted lyracist and not just a blazed out rapper who has a unique style. Although it was mentioned there are only a few collabo's, one of the best tag team/square off Wu records is on here which showcases the groups two most popular members, Meth and Raekwon on "Meth vs. Chef". The two emcees square off in a semi battle rap where both are able to display their different styles and different techniques of word play.
Another one of the top tracks on the album is the "All I Need" which would be a scary "love" song for any other rap act to touch. It is not a pianoed out love ballad with an R&B chorus, it is one of the most raw songs on the entire album due to it's daring beat from Rza.Read more ›
