Some of these other reviews on Amazon of this particular CD are rather vague and weak, so let me set this straight for everyone.
Being a Wu-Tang (major) fan, I bought this CD, because I loved the compilation RZA made on the first Wu-Chronicles.
Different from the original Wu-Chronicles however, there are many un-released songs on this disc.
I'd say this CD was excellent. Excellent lyrics, although it took some time getting used to the beats, they too were great.
This is a total variety of rap styles from the Wu. On "Three Amigos (If It's On)" we have Method Man co-oping with King Just and Sic on a very phat track that I never get tired of listening to.
Some songs, like on the original Wu-Chronicles, are a little weird, and are still growing on me. I'd probably say that Wu-Chronicles part II is almost as good as the 1st, but due to the varying styles on this CD, it is uncomparable.
My suggestion is to pickup this CD, as everyone will find some tracks they love, and others that will grow on them.
Note: If you became a Wu-Fan after 1998, then you probably took some time getting used to the basic Wu Albums like Forever and Enter the Wu-Tang, thus, you may find it the same way here on Wu-Chronicles Chapter II.
Overall: This is actually a prelude to the Iron Flag-2002 season, as the Wu has plans of releasing nearly 10-12 albums in the next 12 months or so. I highly suggest you buy this CD.
