I was disappointed it wasn't flooded by Wu-Elements but I still think hat it was a solid hip hop album but I can see what yall are talkin about. His slang on this ablum cannot be denied however. IMO the album is a sleeper & may need to be revisted by some.Sneakers, Casablanca, Power, 100 Rounds, Jury, The Table, Yae Yo, Live from NYwere a few of my fav joints. However Real Life was my shit. To those that had boxes in their whips then know what Im talkin about.

Smash Yo Grilla!

It should have ended after "The Table"...with that said Rae was at his apex lyrically..every verse he delivered was solid gold from a Wu and Hip Hop point of view...

subpar beats

lack of Clan involvement and cohesion

was such a drastic change from what we had been hearing and expecting at the time

Raekwon jumped the gun on the tight jeans trend

He took too big a step too soon by going it alone. He probably wasn't ready and didn't have the experience to go from being the creative force to actually overseeing the album.

I actually think CL2 is closer to Immobilarity than the original. CL2 is quite a long album, it kind of jumps between sounds (because of lots of producers) but he added Wu references into it so it worked better and he kind of succeeds in linking it better than he did with Immobilarity which was quite fragmented. In that respect Immobilarity was good for him to learn.

I gave it a 4/5, but there are some bad songs on there. Raw is bad, Power and Forecast are really bad.

I also bought the album when it came out in the summer/fall 99' and I agree with a lot of people here is because it was lacking the sound people were expecting I think. People were expecting a Cuban Linx 2 or Ironman 2 with all RZA production, and a bunch of Ghostface and Cappa features but we didn't get that.

I think its kinda similar to the dissapointment ppl felt with Wu-Tang Forever.....Wu fans were expecting more of that dusty, 36 Chambers sound but instead RZA took us to a totally different chamber with the beats and lyrics...

I feel thats why Immobilarity gets shitted on.....but there are some dope tracks....Casablanca, The Table, Live from NY, Sneakers, etc.....

And Rae was def at his peak on this album lyrically......his slang on here is even better than Cuban Linx
