With that said, let me be clear about this. The Movement is the worst cd I've bought in the last 5 years. The beats are laughably bad and most surprisingly, SO ARE DECK'S LYRICS. He went from 110% on my list to nearly unrecoverably wack with this CD.
The Deck of old makes no appearance here. Half the cd is him waxing poetic about how he's so non-pop and hardcore and down with the streets like he has something to prove and the other half is him rapping about jewelery, rims, and how good he thinks he is. He comes off sounding like a complete amateur.
I sat, painfully, trying to endure listening through this whole CD. All I could think of over and over again was that this was indeed a "movement", I just wish Deck woulda had the decency to flush afterward. The pathetic hook "WHO'S GOT IT, HUH, HUH?" perhaps alludes to someone stealing his toilet paper :(
There are endless cringe-worthy lines, messages, and hooks on this album. There are less than a handful of exceptions. City High and Get Right are both pretty good...because both are in the style of Uncontrolled Substance, except you can see some snuck in Movement wackness on Get Right's hook.Read more ›
these are the main problems:
1. the beasts are uninspiring, they may have taken 5 minutes a piece to make.
2. the beats are on some tracks far too soft. when i hear a cd i don't want to be able to picture a rapper in a studio rapping, i expect a production.
3. the theme is really a joke. i mean i agree that mainstreme sellout rap is bunk, but the way inspecta protrays that with his lyrics is cliche and uninspiring.
the only reason to buy this album is to read the halarious comments inspecta writes inside the coverslip. well, i mean, i hope they're meant to be funny, but the truth is, inspecta was probably serious when he wrote them. if you need more wu tang, buy another gza cd before this one.
Dope beats throughout, but not all of the tracks are classic. Bumpin Grindin and Shorty have dope beats, but the lyrics seem to tread into "watered down hip hop."
Overall, this album is tight. INS speaks the truth about too many other fake DJs and MCs who are in it for the wrong reasons. It's obvious Inspectah Deck knows what he's talking about. Vendetta is an instant classic. The rhymes in Framed are nasty. Really solid work. Definitely worth the wait. If you like that top 40 junk, then this album is not for you. The Movement is only for the real.
City High: 4/5
That Sh*t: 3.5/5
Get Right: 2/5
Who Got It: 2/5
It's Like That:2/5
Shorty Right There:1/5
U Wanna Be:2/5
Bumpin and Grindin:2.5/5 (whack chorus cost it a star)
Cradle to the Grave:2.5/5

I expected this album to be a lot better after the under the radar classic "Uncontrolled Substance". Sadly, this CD is pretty poor by Wu Tang standards. Read morePublished on June 24 2004 by Metalhead

uncontrolled substance was a good cd, with mostly good tracks and only a few throw-away tracks. This, however, proves that even the most gifted MCs have amazing potential in the... Read morePublished on June 7 2004 by John N. McAndrews
I like listening to rap for lyrics as well as beats and this is by far the best WU album in terms of beats and the Lyrics are tight as well. Read morePublished on Jan. 15 2004 by U-God
Inspectah Deck needs to go back too Shaolin and train in the 36 Chambers. Don't let the title of this album decieve you. Read morePublished on Dec 23 2003 by Lord Supreme
After the masterpeice that was Uncontrolled Substance, this substanceless peice of fluff hardly even registers as buyable. In fact, I wish I hadn't shelled out my $19 for it. Read morePublished on Nov. 18 2003 by Adam P Boots

I've always thought Deck was one of the stronger Lyrical Wu members. I like the beats on most of the songs and the lyrics are alright. Read morePublished on Aug. 19 2003
