    crappy skits, crappy lyrics and bubble gum beats adorn this album.

    dope joints:

    the grunge(shit lyrics though)
    fast cars(crappy lyrics and hook)
    you dont know
    the whistle(crappy hook)
    koto chotan
    a day to god
    the birth

    decent songs:

    bobi n i
    chi kung
    cherry range

    CRAP:

    we pop
    grits
    the drop off
    drink smoke fuck
    see the joy
    wherever i go

    5/10
    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)

    I agree with you except for Grits and See The Joy. Why didn't like those songs?

    what is going on here, people who said this was weak are on point but i can't believe how many people said it was a hot album, not to mention those who rated it as their best rza album.

    it is far from good, in fact it is for certain the worst wu album i have. some alright tracks but it is mostly weak:

    Bob n I-6/10- annoying, overly bassy beat with some bullshit "N" coming every beat. has a replay value of about 1/10. RZA aint bad lyrically on this but the beat is just too bad.

    The Grunge-6/10- another annoying beat, was ok then first time i heard it but RZA is just sort of slurring words and talking shit.

    We Pop-4/10-What was RZA thinking-this beat sounds like it came out of a jakwon album or some shit, i dont know what the objective with this one was but it just doesnt fit with RZA's style.

    Grits-7/10- Not an all together bad track, liked it the first time i heard it. but again the beat isnt great, pretty much ruins the whole song in the end. also a really weak song to listen to more then once

    Fast Cars-5/10-Much like we pop, just soo far out of left field. since when does RZA do this. RZA is average on the mic but it isnt as if it wouldnt have really mattered.

    Chi Kung-6/10- Not such a bad track, the beat is relaxed and sounds recent, RZA really lets it down with the rhymes-just kind of meaningless shit. no replay value.

    You'll Never Know-8/10-Best song on the album, decent beat some decent verses. overall a pretty solid joint.

    Drink, Smoke and Fuck-5/10-same shit as we pop and fast cars-just basic gangster shit which RZA doesnt do so well, the beat could have been alot better and the hook "all we wanna do is drink, smoke and fuck" sounds almost fake.

    Thw Whistle-8/10- Finally something on the album that sounds like real RZA style. the beat is hot and RZA is decent on the mic. i guess some people may say the beat is annoying but it sounds good, shame about the hook.

    The Drop-6/10- Not such a bad beat but a serious collection of poor verses which drag this song into the doldrums. what is going on with the fake gangsta hooks, just doesnt sounds right.

    Wherever I go-6/10- Beat is ok but pretty annoying and average, verses are nothing special.

    Koto Gotan-7/10- Dig the beat on this, sounds cool with the drums and the instrument in the back. verses aint great.

    A Day To God IS 1000 Years-6/10-average beat, verse is average. nothing standout, just sort of a nothing track.

    Cherry Range-5/10- this beat made is so cheesey. RZA is lazy on the mic.

    The Birth-5/10-RZA's lyrics aint bad but the flow aint shit, the beat is weak.

    See The Joy-5/10-fark, all these dick riders saying how this is some conceptual master piece, track is weak. rza is soo lazy on it, the beat is slow and annoying. if you wont the exact same song but 10 times better get NaS-fetus off lost tapes. he does a great job, rza is way off.


    overall the album is a few good in bits and weak in bits. just average. beats are genarally poor and RZA is not on point with rhymes. i very over rated album which should be more critically looked at.

    I really enjoyed this release, I think all three RZA releases were great. He gives the most unique packages of all the generals.

    This album was so hyped up on this site when it first came out. You guys were comparing it to Supreme Clientle LOL. I wasn't impressed with a lot of the beats and RZA could've picked better guests. It's not bad but not the followup to the classic Digital Bullet that I had hoped for.

    I personally love this album. It doesnt have a Wu sound, but there are awesome beats on this album. The Grunge is sick, Grits is a tight track, Chi Kung, The Whistle, and You'll Never Know are great tracks to vibe to. Then, the album gets serious. Koto Chotan has a sick beat. A Day to God is 1,000 Years is basically one of the best songs of any wu member. The Birth and See The Joy are solid as well. Sorry to all the Wu fans that only like Cuban Linx, Ironman, Tical, Liquid Swords and 36 Chambers.

    7.5/10

    I don't know what I think about this album. I love Chi Kung. I like RZA in we pop. This album is definetely not horrible, but there's something about it I can't put my finger on.

    I think the second half of the album is very strong. There are some VERY weak parts on the first have, like the first track, parts of we pop, and drink smoke and fuck. The concept for see the joy is not all that great, but the beat is great. Along with Chi Kung, Koto Chotan is awesome. the best track is day to god is 1,000 years, by far.

Like it or not, RZA is defined by his production. I don't want guys trying to sound like RZA or how experimental they sound, because in the end they can't really complement RZA like he can himself.
    Yeah, i loved it originally when it first dropped but i honestly haven't listened to it in like 2-3 years now. I have to pop in alot of the later Wu albums again and give them another listen because i've grown on so many levels since alot of albums came out. Eventhough this isn't even that old my musical tastes and knowledge have took different turns so i gotta re-listen to this now and than leave my thoughts but at first i loved it.

    I's a 7,5/10 album. I'm going to shock you and say that Cherry Range is the best song on here. I love this beat! other dope songs: A Day To God Is 1000 Years, Koto Chotan, Fast Cars, The Birth, Grits & Chi Kung.
