    BTW theres two versions of Spotlite the one you can download on this site got the full method man verse but the one on the Mathematics CD doesn't he just plays a sample of meths verse at the begining and on the background of the CD intro, why did he take it out.

    ^^ "Hand Clap" was aight but just not as an album closer, after the sad and dramatic vibe of "Jah World" it sounded totally out of place.. "Spot Light" would sound alot better though it's a totally different sound but it had that "we still got it motherfucker and we will keep doing it" vibe. BTW, they did Mathematics also produce "Hand Clap" (i know he had a remix of it with same lyrics on one of his albums i think)???

    listened to "The W" front-to-back yesterday and damn that album is incredible.. so slept on by everyone except Wu heads.

    yeah i know man, i love "Wu-Tang Forever" ALMOST equally as much as 36 Chambers but if you was around in those days people were dissapointed because Forever didn't sound anything like 36... so in interviews in early 2000, an article with them recording The W, RZA was talking about how the new clan album was gonna go back to the basics.. people didn't realise it then, most dismissed "The W" (not Wu-headz) but in fact it is a back to the 36 chambers album. Add "Shaolin Finger Jab" (the full song) somewhere on it and used "Spot Light" as hidden bonus track, CLASSIC.

    how anyone can prefer "Iron Flag" is a mystery to me.

    I agree, the clap track does ruin the closing vibe.
    Fortunately, it's not on the 2xLP version

    ^^ yeah i noticed that over at discogs.com.. i got a few LP versions of the Wu albums, "Only Built 4 Cuban Linx" stops with Heaven & Hell and "Ironman", thankfully, closes with "Soul Controller"/"Carlito's Way Outro". The ODB cassette/LP only has 15 tracks though; it stops with "Cuttin' Headz", i wish they would have put "Dirty Dancing" instead of "Sweet Sugar Pie" and it would be a 5 mic album that way imo.

    "B.I.B.L.E." on "Liquid Swords" is also a CD-only bonus track, does not appear on MC or LP. "I Gotcha Back" is the real finale of "Liquid Swords", not many realize this.
