This album was ahead of it's time. It sounds better now than it did when It dropped.

When immo released in 99 , i remember everybody didnt like this album, even rza .
It was the worst album of the wu, but a good album for hip hop.
All released was dope beetween wu tang firever and supreme clientele, exept raek

Why? Because no wu element and not enough featuring

I think raek is too proud, he wanted showed that he was able to do a dope album without wu production and the most rza, failed!

Nobody like fuck them????!!!! Meth is great


Best track: table, fuck them, favorite dred, casa, friday
Worst: the fours track in the end

I think the worst album of raek is lex diamound story , and i think fila will be garbage

Oh, I don't know, because it's not a good album, maybe?

The beats are ass. Just straight up cookie cutter bargain basement garbage.

Rae was flowing, sure...over bad beats. It turns out music is important when it comes to songs, who knew?

There were maybe three or four songs that were alright. Live From NY, Sneakers, Yae Yo, The Table. But even those? Huge drop down in quality from Cuban Linx.

No RZA, no Ghost... Rae was feeling himself, trying to prove some point, that he doesn't NEED ANYONE...but uh...he kinda does.

Dope album with terrible bonus cuts literally everything past Sneakers is abominable but Rae is sharper flow/ lyrics-wise beats are ok to very good
Lyrics 9/10
Beats 6/10
Overall 7.5/10

One of the best albums for the lyrics.

One of the worse for the beats.

Earlier wu production had diggers searching for years for obscure samples, while this album had at least three tracks made from samples taken from the same artist (chris spheeris), which is just lazy. Furthermore, the guy who 4 years earlier spent a whole skit on telling biters to get lost and be original now makes an album with tracks like "pop shit", which is a ripped off swizz beatz track, which wasn't even produced by swizz, i.e. He became what he earlier hated. It was just an uninspired, unoriginal album, with few bright moments, like "live from ny". Thats why i disliked it. For someone picking up the album now, that whole context is irrelevant.
+1

I agree wit some of you that mentioned this album needs a remix of beats.

Someone do it already.
