    I think on that album Meth got his classical flow from 36 chambers and Tical back, but then it wenat away again.

    Just check his verses on The Jump Off and Gravel Pit.

    Most of the tracks on the W are brilliant or at least pretty good.

    But Conditioner, Protect Ya Neck (the jump off), Do you really, the Monument and Gravel Pit are all pretty average to me. I don't like the bonus track after Jah World either.

    But at the end of the day, this cd has 8 great tracks on it.

    Also I gotta say that rza's verse on careful isn't great, but otherwise it's a pretty nice song.

    The reason why some people do not like The W is because it got released after all their classics. In an interview RZA said he had a plan until 1997 and after they released Wu-Tang Forever he didn't have one anymore. Back to topic again. Wu-Tang released 2 classics with 36Chambers and Wu-Tang Forever, and the anticipation was at its highest before The W dropped. Everyone was expecting a classic, but that didn't happen. Personally The W is a 4 mic album, with classic songs like Hollow Bones, Protect Ya Neck...etc

    Production wise this album was the best.

    Definite classics- Chamber Music, Careful, One Blood under the W(this track is bumpin)

    Good Hits-The Jump Off, Do you Really, Gravel Pit

    Could've done without Conditioner and I Can't Sleep. These are probably the two worst WU songs I've EVER heard.

    this album was the greatest sounding album ever

    the way the beats kept on changing - even in the same track (protect ya neck, monument, etc)

    lyrics off the hook

    the album was all over the place

    it was like a universal tour

    wu at their absolute best
    gritty dirty sophisticated intelligent enlightening

    this album was huge

    it belongs in a fine art museum or something

    PEACE

    i have never heard anything like this album before or since

    IMO the W has the best production of the 4.
    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)

    This was def my 3rd fav of the big 4 Wu LPs. It was nice and short. I think it was a real good follow up to Wu Forever and slept on. I listen to it all the time.

    I liked it alot for real...it has more soul than any other Wu album! But there is something missing on the album and I don't like the featurings out of the WU camp! RZA shoulda have continued rhyming on 'GOTTA CHECK OUT THE W' I felt the whole beat and all!..The version they have on Iron Flag dosen't do it for me...'CAUSE RZA IS MISSING!
    Wu-tang is one thing that made my life more interresting lol. RZA inspires me. And to all of you people living with negativity inside yourselves...remember that if God is for us, who can be against us?

    Amazing,
    I can't go to sleep is my favorite wu-tang song.



    I love the W, songs like, Hollow Bones, I can't go to sleep, and Jah World are some of my favorite wu tang songs of all time.
    I play it more then the pervious two albums, although I'll be the first to tell you that 36 and forever are superior albums
    1776, you think im gonna die for that again?

    Production side of this album is light years ahead of its time. You need to listen to this album several times over and over to really appreciate the work it is. Damn near classic album, but songs like Conditioner reallllly bring it down. This CD is near classic and probably was one of the best albums of 2000.

    not even close to their best in my opinion.
    The earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot.

    People are too stupid to effectively conspire to do anything, but not too stupid to come up with conspiracy theories.
