CL2 wasn't even as good as people made it out to be. I've seen people say it's a classic, that's just not true. It's a very good album tho. My problem with it, is that I heard some of the beats years before and after years Raekwon uses the beats which were already there.
I would be disappointed if this album isn't a lot better than CL2 after all the hype about this being for the fans.
