    This is a less talked about Wu solo album, however is looked highly upon by many wu fans. Even though the album is certified gold, some critics argue that beacuse it was one of the late wu-tang solo album debuts, that if it was released 5 years earlier....INS wouldnt be one of the lower profile members as hes know to be today.

    Nevertheless the people who own this album will likely have it through their play rotation.

    Yea i think it's a dope album Deck killed it.The best tracks on here 4 me were friction,word on the street,movas and shakers,longevity,rec room,elevation, and 9 th chamber.The only song i skip is show n prove, as usual Deck rhymes and flow r crazy on the track but the chorus is awful i cant stand it.The beat is quite weak also.He could of cut trouble man also but i can deal wid this tune more more than i can than show and prove.Overal a great solo album i give it 4 mics.Without the 2 tunes mentioned it would have easily gained 4.5.I haven't heard the movement yet 2 compare the 2 but from what ctitics have been sayin this is the better of the 2.

    Uncontrolled Substance - 4.5 (get that loser off the hook)
    Femme Fatale - 4.5/5 (sick bass)

    Forget Me Not - 2
    Longevity - 4.5/5
    Word on the Street - 4.5/5
    Elevation - 4.5/5
    Lovin You - 4/5

    this is a good album but it's just not at all special like liquid swords, cuban linx, ironman, etc. good songs are 9th chamber, grand prix (yeah the concept is corny but everyone kills it), longevity, the cause, show n prove, friction, hyperdermix, movers & shakers, rec room, trouble man....all good, but not great. the three joints about women are boring and word on the street is pretty bland too. deck's rhymes are also way off the standard of his rhymes on forever (or the w, or iron flag, or 36 chambers), he seems to be coasting most of the time

    Exactly my thoughts. It's really good, but it just doesn't grab me like a real classic. I think Deck could do better (but sadly hasn't).

    8/10

    It's better than The Pillage to make a comparison. The Pillage is overrated by some of you guys.

    this album has some great beats on it. there's 2 or 3 songs i skip. deck is aiight on here, i dont think he's a very good storyteller. he's much better with battle rhymes. he tried to tell stories and he wasnt very good at it. u-god COMPLETELY outclassed deck on the songs he was on with him. lyrically this is WAY below deck's potential.

    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)

    I completely agree with this statement, I don't feel Deck as a solo artist, he shouldn't be making his own albums

    gotta say I pretty much agree with this.

    Really like REC Room, 9th Chamber and Friction. Grand Prix is cheesy but I can't help really liking it. Uncontrolled Substance needed the dick on the chorus removed like someone else said.

    I always thought Deck, U-God and Masta should have come with an album together. Having said that, U-God, Deck and Street Life always sound nice together as well (like Semi Automatic Full Rap Metal Jacket and Grand Prix).

    This album is way underrated, I think it deserve a 8,5/10

    Friction is my fav track.

    ^!!!!



    word this album is off the chain, and i Agree that it's better then the Pillage...but i also agree with the fact that deck coulda slaughtered it alot worse...he's in my top 4 MC's of all time...

    9/10 album. 9th Chamber, Grand Prix & Lovin' You are my personal classics, but there're other very dope songs: Uncontrolled Substance (I got used to this hilarious chorus...), Show & Prove, Word On The Street, Rec Room, Friction & The Cause. I wish there was more A-Team Wu-Tang featurings (where is Meth, GZA & Rae???) and better beats (it would be real 10/10 classic then), but INS spits fire in every song. hands down...
