That last review from W.O.U.T.E.I.S. has the same things wrong with it that the other 5 star reviews had wrong with them......they have absolutely NOTHING to do with that garbage ass CD that Meth put out. They're based on The Wu or Method as a person or how the Wu / Method have affected their lives, but they have nothing to do with the quality of the music that Method Man just put out. You can't base an entire rating on one song (The Turn). That song is dope, but the rest of the album is booty. Anyone that tells you otherwise has no idea what good hip hop music should sound like. Don't get me wrong, I love his first two albums, but this album is just plain weak for various reason. His skills are steadily declining and his beats are subpar. The tightest verses on the entire album don't even come from Method himself. They come from his guests. There isn't a single blazing song on the whole album. What's Happening, The Turn, and Ridin' For Outro are the tightest songs and the best verses on those songs come from the guests and Method gets completely overshadowed. This album isn't for the hip hop heads, it's for the hit pop heads. And like I said before, anyone that tells you otherwise has no idea what hip hop should sound like. It definitely doesn't sound like Tical 0: The Prequel for sure.

To start it off I have been listening to the Wu Tang since they dropped Wu Tang Forever and I have been listening to it alot to understand what they are been talking about. Their lyrics and the philosophy behind it is incredible. I have learned more in live from that cd then from whatever. Also from all their cd's they have bringing out, but Wu Tang Forever is the basic.
All their cd's are incredible good and no one can beat them, especially lyrically. The trick is that you like to hear/listening to what you want to hear and be able to understand. You really have to listen/think behind everything to understand what it's all about.
If you don't like it, it's like reading a book where your mind is not ready to understand it. If you call yourself a fan from the Wu Tang Clan and you dislike a cd from then. I have to say that you don't understand what they are doing/talking about. They are doing this for people who understands them and I have to say that I almost understand everything what the Wu is trying to tell to you. If you understand them you should be able to know what W.O.U.T.E.I.A. is.
Peace to the ones who understands them and do what Method Man is saying in The Turn.

1. Why did Meth even offer this trash to the public?
2. Why did ANY of the Wu Tang soloists (except for Ghostface) abandon RZA's production skills? Isn't that what made them classic acts to begin with?
3. Why is P. Diddy on this album?
4. Why are all the tight MCs foresaking skills in exchange for commercial success and risking their core audience in the process?
5. Why is the last track (Ridin' For Outro) the tightest track on the whole album?

Now......the review:
Speaking as a die hard Wu fan that thought Meth was the best MC when they first came out, I find it hard to say this. But Method Man's album is wack. Straight up. I never thought I'd say this, but out of all the Wu releases this year, Masta Killa put out a better album than this and Ghostface's album blows this one out of the water too. His lyrics have fallen off drastically. He spits wack lines like "I'm trying to get the dollars like Creflo" and "Like Gwynn Stefani, you know there's no doubt". With the exception of Busta Rhymes, Black Ice, and a very tight appearance from Raekwon, even the guest appearances from Missy Elliott, Kardinall Offishall, Snoop Dogg, Saukrates, Ludacris, and the normally reliable and consistant Redman are straight wack. There's even an appearance from P. Diddy......that pretty much sums things up. And what's worse, the P. Diddy appearance is actually one of the better songs on the album. Even the appearance by Ghostface is questionable, but not quite wack. The "Intro" features The RZA and is very misleading because it has a tight beat and leads you to believe that this album is going to be hot, but it's actually the opposite. You want to know how far Method Man has fallen? Just listen to "Tease" or "Rodeo" feat.

Saying screw DefJam ain't gonna help much. We just have to criticize the album and really ask for our HARDCORE METHOD MAN FROM TICAL, AND TICAL 2000.
"Tical 0: The Prequel" has good songs, but they are not tied together as an album, it feels more like a compilation [and a poor one], due to the melee of producers and featurings that don't really get along well in the same arena [the album].
I didn't think the album would turn out that bad without RZA's production and execution, because I know that all the Wu-Tang Clan members are talented enough. [E.g.:Raekwon's "The Lex Dimond Story" is one the best albums I've ever heard, GZA's "Legend Of The Liquid Sword" is very good [although not better than its precedents]; INS's "The Movement" is a good album on it's own, even though it has the feeling of a lacking depth in production, but I still love it -Hardcore Undergroung-; Ghostface's "Pretty Toney" gives the old-school-sometimes funky-always fresh-with hardcore touches- and it didn't disappoint. And many more albums...]
Don't get me wrong, I love RZA, he is my 2nd Wu favorite [Mef is my #1 of all time], but the man needed eventually a sabbatical, he could not be omnipresent all the times.
Back to Tical 0 and resume negative things about the album:
-Production & Execution: too many different people; it's like a sport team with too many stars, it doesn't work! (like basketbal or soccer)
-The album's featurings end up being lame, as sometimes there is not even chemistry between the different artists on the same track. Sometimes it feels like it's not and album but a DJ mix-tape, or DJ Clue's compilations-album-wanna-be-.
