A few cool tracks on it, but mostly the beats are headache throwaway club hits gone wrong. Actually that sounds cool, basically most of the beats suck.

Best tracks: Afterparty, The Show, The Turn, The Prequel, What's Happening.

5/10

Method Man - Tical 0: The Prequel
------------------------------------------------------------------------


1. Intro ft. RZA
* well... kinda of an intro... -/10

2. The Prequel ft. Streetlife
* not classic meth stuff, but enjoyable 7.5/10

3. Say What ft. Missy Elliot & P. Diddy
* not as horrible as everyone proclaims it is, but not brilliant either 6.5/10

4. Whats Happining ft. Busta Rhymes
* yeah, this is what we wanna hear 8.5/10

5. The Motto
* see comments song number 2 - 7.5/10

6. We Some Dogs ft. Redman & Snoop Dogg
* god, this must be one of the most awful songs in hiphop ever - 1/10

7. The Turn ft. Raekwon
* aahh classic wu-tang collobaration... 8/10

8. Tease ft. Chinky
* who the fuck is chinky? 4.5/10

9. Rodeo ft. Ludacris
* i dunno, i don't like this song it's kind of irritating (like most ludacris brings out, but that's just my opinion)... 4.5/10

10. Baby Come On ft. Kardinal Offishall
* another so-so song... 4.5/10

11. Who Ya Rollin Wit ft. Streetlife
* starts nice, but streetlife's hook is really really horrible... original version with odb sounded much better. the nintendo-like beat found i kinda funny, i don't know... 4.5/10

12. Never Hold Back ft. Saukrates & E3
* see comments song 10 - 4.5/10

13. The Show
* kinda nice compared to the shit you've to listen before this, but i don't think it's brilliant either - 6.5/10

14. Act Right
* see comments song number 13 only a little worse.. 6/10

15. Afterparty ft. Ghostface
* i can't understand why people like this song so much. ghostface sounds kinda annoying on this instead of sharp and it sounds more like a suitable skit for pretty toney album than an actual number - 5/10

16. Crooked Letter I ft. Streetlife
* jezus chris - you're happy the album is almost at its end - 3/10

17. Ridin' For Outro ft. Black Ice
* i forgot how this sounded... was it an actually or just an outro? 3/10

overall: 4/10

maybe acceptable as a party album, but horrible to listen to (except a few numbers) in private. get tical 1 or 2000, but avoid this.

1. Intro ft. RZA - N/A
2. The Prequel ft. Streetlife- 3.5/5 - Decent enough song
3. Say What ft. Missy Elliot & P. Diddy- 2.5/5 Its ok but just doesn't come together right
4. Whats Happining ft. Busta Rhymes-4.5/5 High energy type track and Meth does very well
5. The Motto-4/5 I like this song, its just Meth doing his thing
6. We Some Dogs ft. Redman & Snoop Dogg-1.5/5 Its a shame that Meth bothered with this. From here on in the corny, bubble pop rap beats become more frequent
7. The Turn ft. Raekwon-5/5 The best track on the album
8. Tease ft. Chinky-2/5 Garbage
9. Rodeo ft. Ludacris-1/5 Absolute garbage
10. Baby Come On ft. Kardinal Offishall-2/5 Nice bass line and decent enough delivery but amounts to even more garbage
11. Who Ya Rollin Wit ft. Streetlife- 2.5/5 Borderline garbage but still listenable every once in a very long while
12. Never Hold Back ft. Saukrates & E3- 3/5 Strangely enough I can listen to this occasionally
13. The Show-4.5/5 Nice beat and lyrics
14. Act Right-2/5 I just don't know what to write
15. Afterparty ft. Ghostface-5/5 Meth and Ghost at their best
16. Crooked Letter I ft. Streetlife-3.5/5 Nice tag team rapping
17. Ridin' For Outro ft. Black Ice - N/A

The only 5/5 songs are in house produced - I think that sums up the album very well. Some of the big names in the production world have managed to fill this cd up with corny, cheesy and horrendously pop type beats. Meth most definately shows that he is one of the most unique on some tracks but on rest he shows nothing more than an average wannabe rapper

I actually like this album. A few songs get on my nerves such as the one with missy and P.Diddy... PURE GARBAGE, but I like the sound of this album. The Wu basically makes certain kinds of beats and sticks with them, so its okay to hear something different.

4. Whats Happining ft. Busta Rhymes-4/5 - Meth and Busta= a great combination
5. The Motto-3/5 - It's OK, nothing special.
6. We Some Dogs ft. Redman & Snoop Dogg-1/5 - Garbage
7. The Turn ft. Raekwon-5/5 - Easily the best track on the album
8. Tease ft. Chinky-3.5/5 - I kinda like this one
9. Rodeo ft. Ludacris-2/5 - Weak track
10. Baby Come On ft. Kardinal Offishall-2/5 - Boring
11. Who Ya Rollin Wit ft. Streetlife-2/5 Streetlife is very bad in this one
12. Never Hold Back ft. Saukrates & E3-2/5 - Wack beat, wack track
13. The Show-4/5 - Finally a good track
14. Act Right-3/5 - It's okay, except for the hook
15. Afterparty ft. Ghostface-4.5/5 - Second best track
16. Crooked Letter I ft. Streetlife-2.5/5 - Bad beat and again Streetlife ruins a track
17. Ridin' For Outro ft. Black Ice-3/5 - Nice one, but no Meth

I've got to debate that, because my boy mario came through with this album and we rolled a quarter bag swisher and started to smoke, by the time we were to that song with the chick singing where he says some shit about being a frog on a lillypad i ejected the shit because it was fucking up my high. then there's the track with a dude singing like he's breathing hard with some voice in the background saying something about big dogs...the shit is horrible, those fucking nickelodeon cartoon show beats, his new dumbed down flow, the lack of any concepts or themes on the whole album, the horrible cameos, this album is fucking horrendous.

the girl i was dating at the time loved it though lol.

just gave this album a second listen and i will say its not as bad as i used to think it was....but its still pretty bad.

im gonna rate the songs that i thought werent throwaways:

whats happening 7/10
the turn 10/10
tease 7/10
the show 9/10
act right 9/10
afterparty 8/10
crooked letter I 7/10 (has a groovy bassline :spin: ...but the hook is garbage :r )

the rest of the album is just fuckin corny. i will say this though...meth KILLED IT lyrically on this album. its just that the beats are so unbarable.

overall 4/10 which is 2 more points then i gave it initially.

I agree with all of you but i think the turn was great... it really gave me the classic wu-feeling. it was without doubt the best track. what's happening was also good but the rest was really wack

Leo Angel
06-11-2006, 05:08 AM
The only songs that're 10/10 for me: The Turn & Never Hold Back (I love it...). Some average tracks like What's Happenin', The Tease, Afterparty, The Prequel & Act Right. Some fuckin' terrible: Rodeo (OMG:nonono: ), Who You Rollin Wit (what a stinkin' beat), Crooked Letter I (D12 in a house? No! Fuck them!) & We Some Dogs (:r , bleeeeeeeee). Overall: 5,5/10 album. Why Meth? Why?

Just got this and I have to say this is shit.
There were maybe 3 great songs. The turn being one of them(classic shit) I dont mind meth making a party album but if you going to do that do it right. The Pretty Tony album and Bullet Proof Wallets are great party albums. Almost all the beats on this album were wack.

It didnt seem to be Meths album to many guests more like a mixtape. The production fit a pop rapper not Meth. Meth did come lyrically strong but like i said didnt gel with the beats. Lack of any Wu producers really affected the album IMO just not Meth's style

i do agree it lacked the rza beats-a mistake many of the wu members did cause they got beef with rza cause he has billions of dollars while they dont have 1/3 of that! But the rza is the mastamind and without him wu wouldnt be shit and now that they all went there seperate ways all of em except for ghost and deck all downgraded their solo albums cause they didnt have the great rza beats! so many say the wu legend is over but they forgot wu is forever! they have joined again cause the loss of ol dirty but also cause they know to make the illest shit like back in the day they need to re join rza to do it. Im looking forward to not this year where they still have a lot to work out but the year after when they are all back without beef to show once again wu is forever!!!!! Even with weaker beats cause he had a fag like puffy doing em this cd is a 5 outta 5 with hot lyrics and some funny shit! all u who say other wise dont know shit from gold so fuck off and eat fat dicks ya hear!!!!

The only songs i dont like on the album are the one with Missy Elliot, Snoop Dogg & Redman & Ludacris, then the rest of the album was good, i dont know why a lot of people hated it.

IT'S A GOOD ALBUM BUT NO WHERE NEAR HIS TICAL, TICAL 2000 OR EVEN 4:21 THE DAY AFTER SHIT

I voted average. A disappointment of course, but looking back at it, 4:21 did not crush Tical0 into pieces. it's just slightly better with less weak tracks, but not more killer cuts. What's Happening, The Turn, The Motto and Afterparty all are outstanding tracks in my opinion. Anything else, i don't check for anymore. I dig party joints and mainstream cuts usually, but i prefer them well executed, which is not the case on Tical0. It seems as if it already sounded outdated when it came out, beatwise and as far as mainstream went.

The album is a good party album, people can really get down to that one.

Just keep telling yourself that, it will make you fell better for having bought it.

THIS BY FAR WILL ALWAYS BE ONE OF THE BIGGEST DISSAPOINTMENT RECORDS I EVER BOUGHT AND COULDNT FUCKIN BELIEVE HOW SHIT IT IZ.

track 5 is dope.

this and Snoop Doggs DoggFather are 1&2 for biggest letdowns in hip hop . this one iz even worse.

it should not count as a wutang record because it isnt.

junk

unfortunatly

just gave this album a second listen and i will say its not as bad as i used to think it was....but its still pretty bad.

im gonna rate the songs that i thought werent throwaways:

whats happening 7/10
the turn 10/10
tease 7/10
the show 9/10
act right 9/10
afterparty 8/10
crooked letter I 7/10 (has a groovy bassline :spin: ...but the hook is garbage :r )

the rest of the album is just fuckin corny. i will say this though...meth KILLED IT lyrically on this album. its just that the beats are so unbarable.

overall 4/10 which is 2 more points then i gave it initially.
other than the turn i dont even like these songs anymore.

i listened to this again a while back and this album is REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEEEEEEEEALLY bad. like....historically bad.

i still say meth ripped the mic on here but the beats are SOO FUCKING UNBEARABLE that it totally erases any redeeming quality it could have in any other area. its like method man was begging to get radio play with this and everything just comes off as ultra-cheesy attempts to be commercially relevant.

i shouldnt even be talking about this album. its better to pretend it doesnt exist.

Well, I was listenin to this shyt last night, and I wasn't satisfied at all.....

Beats r soooo weak, lyrics r wack, it looked like mef recorded it 4 one night...:D

I am not feeling this album at all, so i will not comment it much, I will just vote average, cuz it is far from total shyt...........

Tho' there r few to be honest that I will listen to them often, 4 example afterparty with ghost....


Peace.........................

yeah this album gets too much hate because people have to compare tical to this and you can't do that. i think meth went in on this but def jam again fucked it making him go in a direction he just wasn't

THE W
06-29-2008, 08:28 PM
tical has nothing to do with this bullshit. i didnt like tical 2000 as much as tical but its still a ill ass album. tical 0 is asshole crust compared to a guy grunting while beating on rock with a stick.

Def Jam probably wanted Meth to recreate Blackout by himself

We Some Dogs, Afterparty & Whats Happenin' are absolute Wu-Bangas though

Although I heard/read in an interview that Meth said "Tical 0: The Prequel" was his best album, I have to say that it's the total opposite.
Didn't like that album.

Not his strongest album, the songs all song like he was trying to go more mainstream. Still has a few good tracks

The turn
afterparty
whats happenin
The prequel - streetlife and meth is almost as good as rae and ghost

claaa7
07-14-2008, 04:46 AM
^^ add "The Motto" to that list which is a great song IMO.. rest of the album is pretty weak, Meth has great lines allover the album but production is horrible for large parts of the LP.

THE MASON
07-14-2008, 11:32 AM
^^ye i forgot that track which is more like the other tical albums. also i dont mind the outro

Hollow Dartz

1) Intro

2) The Prequel
This beat is kind of wack to start off the album, I was expecting better and I can't get into this track. Method Man came ok lyrically on here, but we waited 6-7 years for this one, this should be more grimey. This is the sound of the whole Lp. 3/5

3) Say What
A club track by Method Man. I'm not really feeling this one either. I heard Missy didn't even want to come through to do the hook. This has too much "commercial-ness" to it Where is the grimey Method Man at? Beat isn't all that great either, you can tell where they were aiming with this one. 2.5/5


4) What Happening
This is a pretty good track. A nice guest spot by Busta Rhymes on here, he definitely delivers and Method Man comes through on here lyrically. This was a pretty good single at the time. Beat is pretty good, I'm definitely feeling the chemsitry on here. Wish this album had more bangers on this. 3.5/5

5) The Motto
This is actually ok, but this one is a little too slow for me. Method Man comes through on here lyrically. But this is pretty boring. I won't drag on about this one. 3.5/5

6) We some Dogs
This joint is wack. I'm mad disappointed. Especially some Red & Meth collab. Snoop couldn't even save this track. Everything from the beat to the hook is wack. 1/5

7) The turn
The best track on this album. rza came through on here. Raekwon definitely came through on this one he just rips it to shreds on here. This is one hell of a Method Man verse, i even made this my ringtone, he goes in on this shit. The last verse was unexpected but a nice follow up. 4/5

8) Tease
Another attempt at a radio track. I'm not feeling this one either, pretty wack. We waited 6-7 years for this shit? By this point in the album I'm mad disappointed right now. Meth can do way better. 3/5

9) Rodeo
Ok I won't lie I'm feeling this one a little bit right here, Ludacris came through on here to keep this alive. I'm feeling the chemistry on here. This could've been the next single. 3.5/5

10) Baby Come on
This shit is wack. Another radio joint. Where is the grimey Meth on here? 1/5

11) Who ya Rolling With
I would've gave this shit a 4, but they removed the ODB hook and he ripped that shit. Streetlife sounds wack on this hook. Beat was pretty good, but the hook threw me off on here. 3.5/5

12) Never Hold Back
This is ok. Not to bad, but nothing special. Method Man delivers on this one I can't lie at all. Hook is ok but we need something better than this. 3.5/5

13) The Show
This is one of the Last great lyrical performances by Method Man. he definitely came through on here and just goes in as the song goes on. the beat isn't even all that great but Meth just steals the show on here, you have to give him credit on this one. 4/5

14) Act Right
Why are songs like this on a Method Man album? I'm not even going to waste time. 2/5

15) AfterParty
This is actually a good banger. Good to hear a Method Man & Ghostface track. Ghost came through on here, great story telling and they both go in on this shit. One of the few good tracks on this album. "Wu-Tang the best rap group of all time" Ghost just goes in on here. 4/5

16) Crooked Letter I
Another banger from Method Man. This is pretty good. Him and Streetlife deilver on this beat. They steal the show over this beat. You can feel the chemistry on this one, i don't know why Method Man doesn't have some more good shit on this album. 4/5

17) Outro


Beats - 2.5/5
Lyrics - 3.5/5
Overall - 3/5

I can't believe I'm even giving a Method Man album this low of a rating. This album should've been grimey as hell. I remember buying this shit just being mad disappointed. Although this did go gold, this was for a straight up commercial audience. I'm at a lost for words for being a Die hard Meth fan. Peace ****Overall 3/5****

yea its almost like they had two completely seperate recordings sessions for this when you listen to it

One with that nasty Meth shit you wanna here


One with the wackest, poppest, fuck shit tracks


But on the real we know what really happened. Altho I kno its Def Jam being wack, Meth still came ass on it a little too often

The bad press this was getting made the album seem ok when I first heard it. But despite a couple of excellent tracks this remains purely a party banger (and good at it). Just no real replay value

this is not a very bad album like everyone say, some classic tracks like The Turn, Afterparty, The Show. Why he not perform these tracks live? that would be dope and im not talking only about Method Man, other members also have some classic cuts which they could perform live, not just only 93-96.
