Inspectah Deck's debut LP has been one of the most eagerly awaited in Wu-Tang's long history. As the Clan's vaunted lead hitter on pivotal posse cuts like "Triumph" and "Protect Ya Neck," Deck displays a gift for metaphoric mastery and complex rhyme schemes. In fact, few other MCs are more effective than Deck at creating evocative street-level images with single line strokes from his lyrical stylus. Line for line, Deck could easily outshine even fellow Wu members like Method Man or Raekwon, but in a new Wu era where RZA has opted out of handling the bulk of the group members' production, Deck loses out considerably. Uncontrolled Substance is nowhere as banal as GZA's Beneath the Surface, and there are some great tracks ("Femme Fatale," "9th Chamber"), but writ large, RZA's absence is the disc's more glaring shortcoming. How you gonna have the Wu's most venomous rhymer trying to come with an album without the clique's most accomplished beat chemist behind him? This is a great album, but it could have been far greater. --Oliver Wang

This is original, doesn't sound like any other album. EVERY SINGLE track (thats right all tracks) are excellent, they all show a lot of work and dedication. Theres no commercialism in here, deck and guests style of rhyming complete the tight beats in the perfect way, shame on no limit and cash money that are unorganized and don't have orientation in their albums, they mix it up and every track sounds the same (this is true wether youre a cashmoney fan or not).
but this one is excellent, listen to it from start to finish, and you'll find deck rhyming lyrics with the enthusiasm and precise accuracy like in protect ya neck, guillotine, triumph and for heavens sake. yeap i said every song is excellent , its true, AND OUT OF THIS ORIGINAL AND RAW ALBUM THERE A FEW OF THE BEST WU TANG SONGS EVER, AND THUS SOME OF THE BEST RAP SONGS. Listen to friction, maybe the best song, WITH RZA PRODUCTION FOR THOSE OUT THER WHO CANT LIVE WITHOUT IT. RZA composes the beat like it was the cuban linx album, while deck and masta killa rhyme on it with their characteristic wu precision. elevation, 9th chamber, uncontrolled susbstance and femme fatale are so damn good and unequal to anything else, you'll want to listen again and again. just naming a few of the songs, and I'm not here to determine the best songs, YOU DO determine the songs you like best, and i can tell ya you re gonna love the album, no matter if youre a wu head or not.
Not a lot of rza, but the totally blazing production and decks talent well make up for that. if ya dont like it, email me and ill give ya your money back, shipping and handling included.
its too bad it doesn't atract people like other circumaniac stuff on the shelves
If you like Wu Tang you should defineatly buy this CD. There is plenty of the required posse cuts to make this an official Wu Banga. If you are only a mellow Wu fan, and want to hear the best rap group of 90s this is probably not the CD to get, I would suggest getting their debut, Enter the Wu Tang, to get a feel for each of the Clan's personalities and rhyme styles then get the solo joints.
