    i thought i gave my comments on this album but i guess not so...

    tracks 1 to 13 are the best...PERIOD. if this album were just these 13 tracks it would be my favorite album of all time over cuban linx or anything. the last 4 tracks just dont live up to the other 13 tracks. they're not neccesarily terrible but they're huge let downs after having my head explode listening to the first 13.

    overall i give this album 9.7/10
    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 album was the last before Forever came out. I will say that this album is a classic, even thought there are 2 tracks I don't listen to very much. Not that they are bad, but just not up to par with all of the other absolutely fantastic tracks. Here's my review.

    Iron Maiden-5/5-I love the intro with the kid "kiss my ass motherfucker." Good beat not the best on the album but it's really banging. Actually I might have to say Cappadonna came the best on this song which is pretty surprising but everyone knows that Cappadonna was a dope MC during this time frame. Shame he fell off.

    Wildflower-5/5-I love the beat. Pretty simple but is just crazy. Ghost tells a story he's pretty explicit. I don't think anybody sets the scene better than Ghostface, this is why he's on of the best out there. You got to listen close, or you'll miss something from him, that's why he's an incredible MC. "If your pussy dry, spit on my dick and put it in." Dude's hilarious.

    The Faster Blade-5/5-Love this track. Beat is bananas. Raekwon shows that through the time frame or 93-97 he was one of the best to do it. Dope song straight Cuban Linx style. Barely ever skip this.

    260-4/5-Great song but thus far this beat is the lesser of what has been outstanding production. Sounds like some vintage Pete Rock with the horns. It's a great beat but not my favorite on the album. But Ghostface has a great but I think Rae outdid him on this song. Raekwon is a fucking great MC, so underrated.

    Assassination Day-5/5-Man this song is crazy. RZA has a dope beat the man just never came out with anything bad in like 5 years. Good beat but lyrically this song is Wu Tang all the way. Nothing else can compare. Deck is ridiculous. Just absolutely kills this song. What's even crazier is that I think Masta Killa's verse is EVEN better. A lyrical classic. Everyone came great, RZA has a great verse too.

    Poisonous Darts-4/5-Dope song. I love how Ghost gets quicker with the flow as the song progresses. Good beat. Simple but real fast. Ghost flows well with it. It's a short song so I do skip it sometimes but still great.

    Winter Warz-5/5-Man this beat is one of my favorites. That horn type sound is just too dope. Classic RZA right here. Only thing is, when you play this in your car you better have a good system in your car otherwise your bass will blow out. U-God has a very underrated verse, probably 2nd best on this song. This song has one of my favorite Masta Killa verses mostly because his flow is perfect for this song. Cappa fucking donna was absolutely sick. A 2+ minute verse of crazy wordplay. I think this is one of the best verses I heard. He just murdered it.

    Box In Hand-5/5-I love this track. Dope song sounds like it could have been on Liquid Swords with the weird sounds going on. Method Man easily has the best verse to me on here. Can't skip this track just classic grimy RZA type beat.

    Fish-5/5-Man this track is classic. True Master, along with 4th Disciple, are 2 of the most underrated producers ever to exist. Yeah there's others out there. RJD2, Mathematics, DJ Muggs who are underrated but I think these 2 are the most underrated. True drops a dope beat sets up Ghost and Rae nicely. But once again, I think Cappa has the best verse it's crazy. Cappadonna was sick. Great track one of the best on here.

    Camay-5/5-Great beat perfect for this type of song. Rae, Cappa, and Ghost are all sick on this song all have similar type verses. I think Ghostface came the best though. "Sup sugar, girl you look so good today." Awesome delivery on that line and on that entire verse.

    Daytona 500-5/5-Another dope beat. I love the guitar. Who says having guitars in a hhip hop song are bad? It can be done very effectively and can't wait to hear the next clan album. I think Ghost has the best here but another great song.

    Motherless Child-3/5-Here's one of the best tracks that I don't really listen to a lot simply because it's not up to par with all the others. Not a bad song by any means but it's not my favorite. Ghosts voice is slowed down which makes him sound different. It's still a good song but not my favorite.

    Black Jesus-5/5-Man this track is fucking epic. Great beat. It just keeps building and building all up to the point of the climax of the song, which is easily when U-God starts in. It's tough to ignore Ghostface's and Rae's verses, but U-God without a doubt has the best verse on this song. U-God sucks? U-God is the worst? Man get the fuck out of here he can be great when he wants and he was here. Classic verse with great meaning to the lyrics. And he said he had to shorten the verse!

    After the Smoke Is Clear-3/5-Another song I skip sometimes. This is probably the worst track on the album. I don't think Ghost and Rae knew how to flow to this beat but RZA did. RZA has a dope verse went perfect with the beat. Ok song nothing great.

    All That I Got Is You-5/5-Shit is beautiful. Just great song all that needs to be said. Hard to skip this.

    The Soul Controller-5/5-It's hard to describe this masterpiece of a song right here. This is musical nirvana to me. RZA is a fucking composer, not a producer. This beat can't be better, it's one of the best i've heard. Beautiful. Ghost was awesome on here too. This song is indescribable to me it's just simply perfect.

    Marvel-4/5-Ok it's a dope beat but this song needed more verses. Sounds like GZA should have been on this one. Like 2 minutes of just the beat it needs to be filled with GZA or another member. This song could have been classic.

    Well that's my review I do think this album is a classic. Now I know that people think "oh every track needs to be better than good." Yeah I agree with you to a point there should be no bad tracks. There aren't any BAD songs on the album. Too many great things about this album to not make it a classic. Some of my favorite RZA beats on here.

    This was a crazy album, ob4cl was just a bit better in my opinion... every track is 4.5-5 but the standouts for me is: Winter Wars, Iron Maiden and last but not least 260 ! Thats one of the best tracks ever done... Raekwons verse is one of the best verses i ever heard...

    "2 hours later, scheaming like deNiro in casino,
    son better have more coke than Al Pacino"
    those 2 lines makes me want to cry for days, they arent anything special lyrically but they just sounds sooo fucking ill...

    1. Iron Maiden - 9/10 - don't like the intro much, otherwise it would be 10/10

    2. Wildflower - 9/10 - didn't like it much at first, but Ghostface is really personal on this, and the beat is brilliant.

    3. Faster Blade - 9/10 - one that grows on you, love the beat and Raekwons verse, but would have been 10/10 with a Ghostface verse.

    4. 260 - 8/10 - I think the melody is a slowed down version of Iron Maiden... not sure, but they sound similar, nice track.

    5. Assasination Day - 8.5/10 - this isn't special, but the verses make up for it.

    6. Poisonous Darts - 5/10 - loved it at first, but I find it kinda boring after a while. Beat gets annoying.

    7. Winter Warz - 8/10 - not as good as everyone says it is, but still decent.

    8. Box in Hand - 8/10 - solid track.

    9. Fish - 8/10 - another solid track, great beat.

    10. Camay - 6/10 - eh... just don't like it as much as the others

    11. Daytona 500 - 7/10 - nice track, but it aint my favourite, the singing at the begining is kinda annoying.

    12. Motherless Child - 9/10 - under rated track, one of the best on the album.

    13. Black Jesus - 8/10 - solid.

    14. After the Smoke is Clear - 7/10 - great track, but it doesnt really standout.

    15. All That I Got Is You - 7/10 - don't like the beat much, but Ghost's lyrics and Mary J Blige make it worthwhile

    16. Marvel - 6.5/10 -decent track and all, but it coulda been better, maybe a few more verses on the end while the beat is playing for a few minutes, an extra Cappa or Rae verse woulda made this a brilliant ending to the album.

    Iron Maiden has been getting to harsh reviews here. IT SHOULD BE A 6/5, let alone a 4/5, WAKE up, its the illest song on the album.

    Also too many are leaving out Soul Controller, definite one of the strongest on the whole album, its also one of the illest laidback flows that Ghost ever spits.

    WORD, I can't believe people liking Faster Blade more than this... The vibe on this song is incredible, it gets my amped as fuck. Iron Maiden is = to Winter Warz IMO

    For me:

    Iron Maiden: 5/5
    Wildflower: 3.5/5
    Faster Blade: 3/5
    260: 4.5/5 - love rae's storytelling
    Assassination Day: 2.5/5 - looking at who's on the track, should be like a new guillotine(swords) but doesn't turn out that well, especially the beat
    Poisonous Darts: 4/5 - love this track
    Winter Warz: 4.5/5 - crazy cappa verse, but beat loses .5 point
    Box in Hand: 5/5 - meth rips it
    Fish: 3.5/5 - nice beat
    Camay: 2/5/5 - really don't like this track, almost always skip, least wu-like yet
    Daytona 500: 5/5
    Motherless Child: 3.5/5
    Black Jesus: 3/5
    After the Smoke is Clear: 5/5 - crazy beat, rae's classic verse
    All that I got is You: 5/5
    Marvel: 4/5
    Soul Controller: 4/5

    probably most critical review on this thread yet...but i'm not one to give songs 5/5 unless they're perfect...cuz that's what 5/5 means...
    Reign supreme in your U-N-I,
    V-E-R-S-E with the sharpness,
    narrow row building no space for partners,
    no space for drivers, no space for walkers,
    no space regardless,
    your on my path then get off it,
    hardheaded and unresponsive,
    get they lives put on target with harshness,
    come with the canons sparkin' they darken,
    who am i? one man squadron.
