    Out of any Wu-fam album debate of "which is the best fam solo?", you better believe that Heavy Mental will be mentioned. Some hip hop critics would catigorize this album as one of the best lyrical albums in hip hop with "dense with religious imagery and filled with evocative sounds"(wutangcorp.com discography).

    If I remember correctly, this album is certified gold.

    The success of this album may be one of the reason why Killah Priest is one of the most widely known and possibly popular wu fam members (of course some would say Cap)

    Anyway.....I rate this album 10/10. And Im not even the type of person that would give a 10 to every Wu album before 1997.

    Lyrics, lyrics, and more lyrics. I don't think many people who listen to this album are gonna understand it, because 90% of the stuff is over peoples heads. This album is way too ahead of it's time. Take Killah Priest, and insert some of the most knowledgeable lyrics ever, combine that with True Master and 4th Disciple on the boards, and something totally original and unheard of comes out. There are many classic songs on this album. This isn't a classic to me, but it's 9.5/10. Go pick it up this album is so amazing.

    Priests best effort. A really classic album. It goes from Gorgeous to a fucking tyrannosaurus. I love those Movie quotes dunno from which movie, about Judas betraying Christ. Really well planned album, production is good and Priest is outstanding lyrically

    not one of my favorite wu cd's, killah priest is a nice lyricist but his flow has that sleep-inducing effect, the hardest i heard him spit was on no said date

    a definate personal classic. 10/10. if you dont have it you need to get this IMMEDIATELY!!
    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)

    not only best wu fam but one of the best wu albums. The only one I'd put on the same level is Wu Forever. It's all about the education.

    10/10 Best Wu album ever hands down (and he's Wu Fam). From start to end it is a hip hop massacre. No doubt Priests a fucken lyrical madman. Buy it...

    I cant take it, Beauty that was once sacred
    is getting face lifts, fake tits & fake lips,
    cold embraces, memory erases, from the slave ships
    my princess, used to spot her from a distance,
    holding my infant, burning incense,
    moment intent, for her to step into my wife tents,
    now we step in pre-sents, for your ebony prince, the smell of frankincense
    was once treated like a pharaoh, with royal apparel,
    anointed with myrrh and aloe,
    we used to wallow, amongst the mallow,
    we had herds of sheep and cattle, now we battle
    used to pass over the brooks of Qeron,
    towers of Lebanon and the pools of Yechuan
    we used to sing songs, upon, Mt Hebron,
    how is gold turned to bronze, how is gold turned to bronze

    we was the wisest and the richest, now we turn to snitches,
    women turn to bitches, in the time of harvest
    we was the smartest, worshipped wisdom like a goddess,
    now we act retarded, forsook the wisdom of the fathers,
    we used to have 1000 flaggons of wine, in Palestine.
    now we sip Ballentyne, and raise up in the violent mind
    we used to have 100 measures of oil, 80 measures of wheat and barley,
    we lived godly, listening to Bob Marley,
    until the devils robbed me, chasing us through the African Safari

    ^^^ Love that verse

    Dope Album. I'd give it a 8.5/10. The first half of the album is just amazing, some of the best lyrics you'll ever hear. I think it falls off just a little bit towards the end, it is a must have.
