Sounds kinda diluted, don't really like the skits. Only tracks I don't really like are Spazzola and Suspect Chin Music, it's great every now and then, but I don't listen to it that much... about 7/10

Apart from fav track I absolutely agree. meth shows he is the full package on this album - amazing flow plus intelligent lyrics make this album an absolute must have and Tru Master adds the magic into this album.

way too long. sounds like he just took everything he recorded in the sessions and shoved it on there. meth sounds really, really good here but he stretches himself too thin. boringness like party crasher should have been left for a soundtrack or something (though the boring tracks here are still better than almost everything on the prequel). but theres a lot of bangers here. spazzola is some insane shit with an incredible killa sin verse. grid iron rap and suspect chin music bang hard (streetlife has never been as good as he was on this album). the shaolin what beat is a masterpiece (listen to the way the piano's layered over itself) and meth rips it. erick sermon hooks him up nice on his tracks. but dangerous grounds is the best cut here; i remember when i first heard the beat i was like "shiiiiiiiiit!!!!!". and meth's flow is unbelievable, the last verse is one of his best verses ever. its a sign of a dope flow that if you say one line of a rhyme, you cant help saying like the next five lines because they flow into each other so nice. and thats the case for meth right here. seriously, try saying one line of that last verse and i bet you cant resist spittin like half the fuckin verse.

anyway yeah he should have cut out the fat and the skits and had this down to a nice 13 tracks or something. but a good album

I like this album, the end of the world 2000 theme is good, Meth is on point in every track
Streetlife comes hot in this shit, sweet love, judgement day and dangerous grounds
spazzola, and much more dope tracks, meth's best album for me, this is the shit that
I want from Meth, between very good album / classic....

Snuffed Out should have definitely been a complete song, I agree 100%. Street rips it up, if only Mef would have threw a verse in. Beat is hot.

This album gives a lot more than Tical, and has a variety of production. Thats why I love the album. There isn't one beat on this album that I wasn't feeling. Lyrically, Method Man comes hard, especially all the guest appearances. My favorite Meth album, love that dark grimey feel to it. Dope shit!

03-21-2006, 06:18 AM
nah i aint feelin it.
weakest wu album i ever heard.
ive got most of the wus cds (some of the affiliates) and this is the worst of all.
i got no play out of it, i even took it back to the store

06-01-2006, 02:23 AM
I still listen to the CD today. It plays like a movie. Exceptional production, lyrics, song order, everything! 10/10 Nothing is missing. Like I said classic.

RZA's Bobby Digital release the next week was perfect.

Those of us who live hip hop then and now, appreciate the Wu and all they do.

I love Meth, but he sounds better with the Clan than solo, Tical was a classic album to me, but after that, every other one was lackin', my opinion!

Tical 2000 It sought of like Wu tang forever. The lyrics are more advanced, the beats have more finesse and the energy is not as high.
Tical is sought of like enter the 36 chambers. The beats are harder and grimy. The energy is crazy.

Any way t2000 personal classic

it's 9/10 album IMO, with many 10/10 joints: Torture, Sweet Love, Shaolin What, Retro Godfather, Grid Iron Rap, Play IV Keeps, Snuffed Out, Killin' Fields, Break Ups 2 Make Ups, Step By Step & Judgement Day. I don't like Suspect Chin Music & Dangerous Grounds, and Spazzola is overrated IMO.Definetaly too many skits, but the album is really grimey. Method and Street impress on this:spin:

It's a little too long

I HATED ..and probably still do.. the beat for "Spazzola" ..just weak. Kanye "6th Disciple" West sampled the same Aretha Franklin song on a Slum Village song w/ better results. Deck took a kind of weak break for that. He made up for that track with "Elements" though, which is a very cool track. I like the back & forth Star and Polite do.

RZA kinda dropped the ball on this one. "Perfect World" is one of his best, "Suspect Chin" well, ..isn't. And I'm still not what to make of "Retro Godfather".. didn't like it at first, then liked it for a minute, but I think there's no reason it should have made the cut - without this track the album flows better and wouldn't drag so much.

"Cradle Rock" is the SHIIIT! I love that track.. not sure who LB the Life Bringa is though (?) - "Dangerous Grounds" is pretty good too - it was played SO much on NY radio when this album was coming out.

"Torture" is boring.. and "Killin' Fields" - despite its stupid in/outros is a lot nicer of a beat.

by the way, this is hardly a concept album.. to whoever said that

I think this came out the same day as either Bobby Digital In Stereo or Heist of the Century.. two of these three albums came out on the same day..

Wack album. I only liked a few songs especially the one with Mobb Deep. He had too many skits on the album and Judgement Day video is gay and the song he did with D'Angelo is wack too. Did ya'll notice Quran from Da Youngstas in Break Up 2 Make Up video? He fought Method Man at the end of the video. 50 Cent was in the video at the end too. Retro Godfather song is so wack. What's up with the wack disco sample on that song?

fav tracks are dangerous grounds,spazzola,play 4 keeps and judgement day.i actually think this is better than the first tical

It is a great album. Regardless too the fact that music choice is subjective, allot of y'all really shouldn't listen too hip hop, y'all choice of what songs are "wack" is just plain stupid. no taste at all.

I'm surprised Hollow Dartz didn't review this shit yet!



01 : Judgement Day
02 : Perfect World
This track is a lyrical preview of the album. Straight raw and gritty and although Meth brings it hard on a tight beat I don't like that part towards the end of the track, it kind of messes up the track vibe on here. Nevertheless still a banger. 4/5
03 : Cradle Rock ft. Left Eye
"Die Hard Fan call me John John Mclane now, Snake vs the Crane style" Meth comes hard on here just dropping bombs line after line and his flow on here is mad nice. He has a lilttle Raggae part towards the end that messes up the vibe of the track a little bit, and Left Eye at the end sounds dope to me (RIP). 4.5/5
04 : Dangerous Grounds ft. Streetlife
Instant Banger right here. Beat is crazy as hell, Meth comes on and is raw then Streetlife comes in and smashes this shit, he pretty much smashes this whole album. 4.5/5
05 : Sweet Love (Skit)
06 : Sweet Love ft. Cappadonna & Streetlife
I love the beat on this joint right here, Streetlife starts it off great, then Cappadonna comes in with his wordplay and slang and just kills it, Meth ends the track nice as hell, he comes off smooth on this one. 5/5
07 : Shaolin What (Skit)
08 : Torture
Method Man shows why he can't be fucked with on here. Lyrically flawless on here, beat is nice too. Too many lines to be quoting on this one cause Meth is coming hard. 5/5
09 : Where's Method Man? (Skit) ft. Ed Lover
10 : Suspect Chin Music ft. Streetlife
I love how this shit comes on. Meth and Street going back and forth ripping this track to shreads. "Shotgun aiming at ya chestpiece blaow!" Streetlife gets better every track he's on. Method Man brings the pain on this joint. 5/5
11 : Retro Godfather
This track had to grow on me, but if you listen to the lyrics on here Meth is on some other shit..."We got love for those with love for us
Baby you can look but don't touch, I'm fried off the dust
And plus, the only thing I trust is a fund
Ain't no fun, just paranoid niggaz totin guns
in apparel, keep us camouflaged in the shadows
That's where I bring this tale that you never get to tattle
Obliterate the tri-state, and the crime rate
Tell them swine niggaz fly straight, you can call it fate" 4.5/5
12 : Dooney Boy (skit)
13 : Spazzola ft. Streetlife, Raekwon, Masta Killa, Killa Sin & Inspectah Deck
Crazy Shit right here, the beat is Raw, Masta Killa opens this one up crazy as hell "Brain gets punctured and drained through the nasal
Hour of assassination be upon you
Movin with the tiger strike, bound, gagged and shot" then Streetlife comes in with a crazy flow on here, Method Man follows up with some classic Material and Inspectah Deck comes in hard kinda like a Triumph follow up "From the Shao' borough, whylin out on the furlow
Commando, styles thorough, solo inferno
It burns slow, thermonuclear degrees
Heads are underseas down to the youngest seeds", Killa Sin comes hard also his flow is crazy on this one it sounds like he doesn't stop at all and Raekwon is the icing on the cake with his mad wordplay, nobody could ask for anything better. 5/5
14 : Check Writer (Skit)
15 : You Play Too Much ft. Chris Rock (skit)
16 : Party Crasher
This a cool track right here, Meth telling a story about what happened at the club, which may be true. Beat is on some Al Green shit nice and calm. 4.5/5
17 : Grid Iron Rap ft. Streetlife
Beat is hard on this joint and this is the only track where I must say Street comes harder than Meth on this one... "I Silver Surf the city circuits, forever lurkin
on the street surface, I spit blood for blood verses
Grands man divided, we still stand, conquer land
One man'll body slam Def Jam" he's comes too hard on this one, don't get me wrong though Meth is wild on here too. 4.5/5
18 : Step By Step
I can honestly say there is nothing wack about this track. Straight hip-hop, beat is nice and calm real dope shit, and Meth is ripping it on the lyrical tip. I love how he is experimenting with his flow on here it sounds mad nice. 5/5
19 : Play IV Keeps ft. Inspectah Deck, Streetlife & Mobb Deep
Another hot track. Hell Razah is on the hook. I love how Inspectah comes in "One hand hold the head of the last brave man" Mobb Deep are nice on here but the clan held it down on this joint. Havoc did a good job on the beat. 4.5/5
20 : Donald Trump (Skit)
21 : Snuffed Out (Skit) ft. Streetlife
22 : Elements ft. Star & Polite
This is a nice joint right here too. Star and Poilte are bringing it hard on here, what happened to these cats? Method Man is just flowing on this shit " I rock from alpha to omega, 64 to sega" Meth is hot. Nice beat too nothing too calm or too hype. 4.5/5
23 : Killin' Fields
Straight Classic. From The beat all the way down to the lyrics. Best track on the album. 5/5
24 : Big Dogs ft. Redman
This joint is ok, not really feeling the beat on this one right here, Redman does come hard on here I must say. Could've been left off the album though... 3.5/5
25 : Break Ups 2 Make Ups ft. D'Angelo
This is a good track. Not wack at all, Meth spits his typical hood love story shit on here, hook my D'angelo is cool aswell. 4/5
26 : Message From Penny (Skit)
27 : Judgement Day
Dope outro to a nice album. Meth did the beat aswell, which is pretty dope. Meth is coming hard but you can tell he's playing wround aswell, but this is still some hot shit! 5/5
28 : C.E.O.Utro

Lyrics - 5/5
Beats - 4.5/5
Overall - 4.5/5

Method Man is in his prime on this album, the lyrics are straight raw, and streetlife is coming hard everytime, he even gets Meth on one track. Beats produced heavily by True and 4th which is real nice. I think if Streetlife would've dropped after this........(You fill in). the only thing about this album are the skits. Too Many and they are so outta place, the Rap Skits are dope though just listen to "Snuffed Out" ****Overall 4.5/5**** ****Certified Wu-Banger****

I honestly don't know why I don't feel this album, on paper it ticks all the right boxes but I just can't quite connect with it.

Yeah the skits really slow this album up.

I do like a few of the songs but I just can't vibe to it as a whole.

Fuckin hell, I just came in here to write exactly the same thing! I've never been able to put my finger on what, but something is missing when I listen to it.

I think it's just too long.
I love loads of tracks on here but as an album...I struggle with it.

Well it seems clearly that alot of people felt the same way, in fact I actually got my copy from a friend who didn't want it any more cos he hated it and since he knew I was a fan he gave it to me. I don't have the case for it though just the cd cos he took it out of the cd changer in his car after we went out cruising.

The skits on here are ridiculous. But with the power of my Zune all the tracks you see rated are the only ones I listen to. I think he's better lyrically on here than Tical, but the beats on Tical are way better...

I kinda think Meth tried too hard with this album. For me he's always been best when he's not thinking, just going off on a crazy one. Just listen to Ice Cream man to see what I'm talking about.

I definately know what you mean about 4:21, but I just feel he's kinda let it creep in more and more through his career. It's kinda like he didn't know he was cool then people told him he was and he started trying to be cool. I dunno...

Skit overkill and a bit jumpy in terms of style changes for easy listening as a whole but much Wu goodness on this.

Good review Hollow btw. I like reading your reviews - don't always agree but I like them.
