I'm the biggest gza's fan ever, but i wouldn't say it's a classic. it's a gret album but i don't like every production and songs as Rough cut, sparring minds, highway robbery...of course gza comes sharp but it's not enough to reach the LS level, but for sure there are many bangers like autobio, fame, animal planet, fam, luminal (possibly one of the best cd's song)

Nothing will ever touch LS in my opinion.

Legends is pretty good though but not as cerebral or thought provoking as "Beaneath the surface"

at least an 8

im probably the only person who likes Stay In Line...but w/e i think the LP is tight def not as good as LS but better than LDS BOAP and The Movement as far as that time period goes

this album is ill, one of my favourites. close to classic, take out a few tracks and get rid of the editing and it would be classic for certain. (8.5/10)

#1.Intro
#2.Auto Bio... 4/5... great opener, feeds off the intro nicely...
#3.Did Ya Say That... 4/5... great beat, one of the best one the album...
#4.Silent... 4/5... slightly draggy because the beat is a bit repetitive... great verses...
#5.Knock,Knock... 4/5... not a huge fan of the hook, but great wordplay otherwise...
#6.Stay In Line... 3.5/5... the beat is a bit basic... is only altered with the chorus, makes it predictable...
#7.Animal Planet... 5/5... my favourite wu song in a long time...
#8.Fam (Members Only)... 4.5/5... great verses, great beat, nice touch with rza playing two alter egos on the same track...
#9.Legend Of The Liquid Sword... 3/5... just can't get past the chorus... a shame because gza has some good stuff to say here...
#10.Fame... 3.5/5... nice, simple older style beat with some nice wordplay by gza...
#11.Highway Robbery... 4.5/5... big fan of this song... just awesome...
#12.Luminal... 4/5... eerie, eerie song...
#13.Sparring Minds... 5/5... the rating says it all...
#14.Rough Cut... 3/5... can't get past the beat... awful... nice verse by armel though...
#15.Uncut Material... 4.5/5... great track, nice effort by gza on the beat too...

i hardly ever listen to this anymore. Gza killed it lyrically as usual but the beats are so fuckin flat it just kills the replay value.
