    Idonno what Meth is talkin about. This my favorite Wu album of all time. I felt that everyone was at peak condition. Meth especially.

    Sh!t Meth thinks they weren't cohesive for that album. What word would he use for 8D and ABT? But I do recall RZA saying some of the members were in and out too much during Forever sessions so he didn't get the full potential from everyone. Times change. Peace

    ODB comes to mind.

    And that's why he said he can only listen to the first album. They were all focussed on one thing instead of trying to deal with fame.

    Meth killed on that record. Don't know wtf he's talking about.

    My only issue with that record is the mastering. To this date it still sounds tinny/hallow in regards to vocals. I'd kill for a re-mastering.

    I agree. I also question meth's taste because he's either very self-critical or has a different ear than I do. He hates tical, I think it's great. Then I remember him hyping 4:21 as his best work while I personally thought it just a tick about Tical 0. I don't know how any member of wutang couldn't be proud of Wu-tang Forever. Triumph is their most legendary song and the album has all of them doing some of their best work, and the beats are next level. I personally think Forever is the technical peak of hip hop.

    Meth keeps it honest on what he doesn't like, but come on wu tang forever.

    I think one of meths issues is he doesn't know why people like him. He stopped the "HEY, you, get off my cloud" and "Excuse me while I kiss the sky" and convinced himself he was a punchline rapper. Cilvarings, if you have his ear tell him to sing more and bring the references back. I know he hates your fucking ass but try

    LOL...Thats interesting.

    I think everyone in the clan could give a reason why they are liked, except meth.
