to wade or any other mod : can you edit and correct the spelling on the thread title ? i tried and it doesnt work.. shit is botherin me..lol

03-20-2006, 05:10 PM
to be honest, this album sucked. I give it about a 6/10. Alot of the beats just had no thump to them at all.

03-28-2006, 11:36 AM
7.5/10. Decent LP

i like mathematics work but it upsets me that he works on old wu-tracks and not new ones.

Mathematics - The Problem - rating

1. Intro
2. C What I C
- 5/10 i really just don't dig this song
3. Strawberries & Cream
- 7/10 Wu appearences can't do much wrong can they?
4. Can I Rise
- 7/10 supriselingly entertaining
5. John 3:16
- 9/10, yeah this is meth as we wanna here him! p.i. hasn't many lines
6. Winta Snow
- 7/10 okay song
7. Two Shots of Henny
- 6/10 kinda average rappers, but okay

9. Real Nillaz
- 7/10... has Ghost & Raekwon on it...
10. Coach Talk
- 5/10 Nah again
11. Rush
- 8/10 not classic but very nice relaxing RZA&Meth song
12. U.S.A.

13. 6/10

14. Break That

i got this album a couple weeks ago and Im not feelin it much. 6.5 outta 10

03-29-2006, 04:50 AM
Beats : 8/10

Emceeing: 5/10

For the most part the emceeing is below par on this cd. To me its only the clansmens efforts on here that are good or standouts. Some of the tracks on here were excellent but others have good beats but poor emceeing.

I can't say I particularly like listening to this album too often. 6/10

03-29-2006, 05:21 PM
Naa didnt think the album waz 2 gd , some songz waz alright but i just cudnt get in2 it :(

IMO opinion Love Hell Or Right was far superior on tha continuity tip but iam def. Felling The Problem the break beat on Winto Snow is nice nice...Coach Talk is straight pimpin track Math fo sho sho holdin it down for Queens like Jhon Gotti did 7\10

04-03-2006, 11:22 AM

Dope album, the only weak link is the lyrics on some of the tracks like 2 shots of henny, coach talk, and USA are pretty generic and cheesy. Real Nillaz, Bullet Scar, Winta Sno, C What I C and Strawberries and Cream sport some 9:|6 beats though. I look forward to any future projects from Math, I really wish he would do some more production on Clan solo albums though.

11-24-2006, 03:28 PM
good album

08-26-2008, 03:33 PM
upping for more opinions, this was a sick album that deserved more love

08-26-2008, 03:35 PM
Agree, I think this album is a bit underated, I still bump it today.

Better than his first joint, but this is still between Average-Banger material.

08-26-2008, 03:45 PM
I liked his first album, there are some major bangas on there so I don't get why people don't feel it as much. I also view this album as average to banga.

08-26-2008, 03:46 PM
am i alone in loving Coach Talk? thats like the smoothest sh1t ever, i know its not Wu sounding but that shit was great.

best 3 tracks=Spotlite/Break Dat/Strawberries and Cream

Love, Hell or Right wasnt as bad as some made it out to be, i felt it was a little too inconsistent. Hav Mercy,Great Siege and Respect Mine were ill, i like the 2 pimp tracks on here also lol

08-26-2008, 03:53 PM
My fave joint was Real Nillaz.

08-26-2008, 03:59 PM
damn..yeah that would have to bump Spotlite off my top 3. the little soul breaks on Real Nillaz are dope

Rush was the joint too, i loved the flutes that come in after the last verse. Meth and GZA are always an unexpectedly good combo

fuck it i like pretty much the whole album except for USA, i usually dead that after MK's verse

08-26-2008, 04:18 PM
2.C What I C - 5/5
3.Strawberries & Cream - 5
4.Can I Rise - 5/5
6.Winta Sno - 5
13.Tommy - 5

5 classic songs

can i rise is crazy....

Real Nillaz is the best track on here. John 3:16 is ill, Rush is nice.

Nah i tried hard to like this album. But it was just too mediocre. His drums were boring, the emceeing was really bad. Of course though this has got Strawberries on it, but its not as dope as the BPW version.

For me it was a major step down from Love Hell Or Right.

08-26-2008, 07:42 PM
I did not like this album. Actually after seeing this thread i went to fye and sold them the album for store crediet along with wu and freinds.

^^^ditto, pretty much. math is my 2nd fave producer, and i was really disappointed by the beats on here. and like u said, the MCing was a big step down from "love, hell or right". i do love the "strawberries" joint though....LOVE that soul mix on there!
but, nobody's perfect. still love math.

i'm really feeling that dude "eyeslow". ever since "love, hell or right" i was hoping for a solo from him produced by math....or him & "buddha bless" (also a beast) prod. by math.

For me the weakest Math album. What is Ghost like on stawberries and cream though?

05-18-2009, 11:12 PM
