I've Decided that I was going to listen to this while lifting today and during other activities...

1.Intro

2.City High
This is an nice opener right here. I like how Deck describes his come up on the track. It has that street feel to it and the beat is great for this type of track. Inspectah Deck shows he still can deliver around this time. He is spitting some real rhymes on this one, especially on the second verse. This track is pretty solid. 4/5

3.That Shit
I guess this was one of his commercial attempts right here. This is a different sound for the Rebel INS. The beat is not even that bad but when you get to the hook you are ready to cut this one right off. He could've came better on this one. This is one of those average cuts on the album. 3.5/5

4.Get Right
Another track I thought I would not hear Deck on. I like his switch of flow on here I can give him that. He does show maturity and growth on the mic. This comes off as another radio type track though which fails. The beat is pretty weak which takes the rating for this one down. 3.5/5

5.The Movement
In my opinion. Album Title tracks should be one of the standouts on the album. This is not the case. I saw the video for this and I was kind of like "Whoa" LOL. Deck caught me off guard with this one. This is definitely a club track right here, beat was ok but he didn't come good enough on it for it to standout. His opening line on the third verse "I do this for doe, but it's really for love" after that that whole verse was lazy. This had the potential to be way better than it was. 3.5/5

6.Who Got It
This one is a gem. I think this is the best track on the album. Deck just comes through on here with the street rhymes and with his usual ill dartz. The beat is something nice on here. "Who got it HUH! WHO GOT IT" just adds more fuel to the fire. He delivered on here, more track like this would've made more people follow the movement instead of going back home. 4.5/5

7.It's Like That
Another one of these radio tracks. A club track at best. It's clear this is one of his albums that may be trying to reach out to either new audiences or a new sound. He sounds like one of the commercial cats on the radio on here. Nothing else to say. Oh yeah Deck says it himself in the opening lines in the second verse "I did it for doe, this ain't about rhymes" 3.5/5

8.Shorty Right There (Feat. Streetlife)
I'm kind of feeling this track right here. Streetlife comes through on here, Deck follows up with his flow. Beat is pretty good. This is one of the better radio joints on this album. 4/5

9.U Wanna Be
This is a pretty good track. I like his lyrics on here which talks about his street life, beat is just right on here. Nothing too special about it, but I think Deck came through on here. 3.5/5

10.Framed (Feat. Kool G. Rap & Killa Sin)
Another track that has a nice guest feature on it. If you don't know what this track is about then you shouldn't even be listening to material like Wu-Tang Forever or Wu in general. Kool G. Rap delivers a nice verse on here, his flow is still great and Killa Sin delievers his shit nicely. This is a pretty solid track on this album. 4/5

11.Bumpin and Grindin
Another Club track by Deck. I really hope this is not what the movement was all about. Typical club track nothing else to discuss. 3.5/5

12.Vendetta
Ok finally some good shit on here, the beat sounds like that there is a Vendetta. Deck comes correct on here, sounds like he's making a comeback into the game. This is what the movement should've been like from the gate. He had so much potential on this album and this song proves me right. Lyrically he shines and goes off. He shows his anger in the 3rd verse and lets off shots. 4/5

13.The Stereotype
I'm not feeling nothing about this track. This was a complete miss in my book. I figured out where he was trying to go but he got the wrong directiosn. 2.5/5

14.That Nigga
This is an ok track. Better than most of the other joints on here but still nothing too special about it. The hook is one of the best parts to the song. Lyrically he delivers, beat is ok nothing to great, but being that this is better than most of the tracks on here a 4/5 is only right. 4/5

15.Big City
Not Feeling this one right here either, that's all I can say on this one. 3/5

16.Cradle to the Grave
This is kind of some real shit but I just can't get into to it. The track itself isn't all that great. Deck has better shit than this that he could've thrown on the album. I don't like how this one ended at all. The beat at the end when he gives his shoutouts is better than Every beat on this album, where is this one at? 3/5

Beats - 3.5/5
Lyrics - 4/5
Overall 3.5/5

Like I said before This is not The Movement I was expecting. Deck has better material than this and should be putting out better products for the fans. I understand the growth and maturity on here and I'll definitely give him that. But this one is filled with Mostly club and radio tracks. I thought the movement was going to be some hard street shit. ****Overall 3.5/5****
