I always support Ghost, Gza and Rza without second guessing. I couldn't help myself and I downloaded the retail.

They better give my nigga Ghost his long awaited 5 mics for this album. If lil kim got 5 and they don't give ghost his, niggas should boycott the source.

this album really suprised me, i thought it was gonna be some gay shit....wrong... overall, id have to give it a pretty close to classic rating in comparison to all wu shit... lots of great songs, real hip hop shit, a couple gay songs (i.e. back like that) but for the most part, some real wu shit that i thought i would never hear again. buy this album. all of you.

OKay i couldn't resist downloading it, and i wasn't disappointed, but on the other hand i wasn't blown away...
The biggest letdown of the album is the beats and the fact that they've cut some amazing verses and tracks for unknown reasons + i gotta admit the track with Biggie is so out of place, i mean the the track is decent, but not for this album...

1. The Return Of Clyde Smith (Skit)
a nice intro, but not what i was hoping when i saw Clyde was back
2. Shakey Dog
I love this shit, superb story telling and the beat is great...
9.5/10
3. Kilo ft. Raekwon
I hate this beat, so fucking boring, but the lyrics are nice, and good to see them back togehter
6/10
4. The Champ
lol there's been 3 versions of this, but i gotta admit this is the best!!! superb cut, Blaze and Ghost at their best! One thing bothers me though; why did they cut off the original 2 verse? that shit was flames!
10/10
5. Major Operation (Skit)
6. 9 Milli Bros. ft. Wu-Tang Clan
damn with this mixed and all+the added drums and the whole Clan involved it's fire! damn...great to see them all back!
10/10
7. Beauty Jackson
pretty nice...but WAAAAY to short! lovely beat and nice lyrics, but it's shortness is fucking annoying!
7/10
8. Heart Street Directions (Skit)
LOOOOOOL
9. Columbus Exchange (Skit) / Crack Spot
Damn this is crack! love it, just doesn't understand why it says there a skit first it's just a voice sample...
9/10
10. R.A.G.U. ft. Raekwon
Best track on the album! everything about it is sick
10/10
11. Bad Mouth Kid (Skit)
LOOOOOOOOL
12. Whip You With A Strap
i like this shit, nice beat, lovely lyrics
8/10
13. Back Like That ft. Ne-Yo
i'll never get into it
1/10
14. Be Easy featuring Trife
lovely old school feel to it, but it's a but boring and knowing Pete Rock produced it, you cant help feeling like he could have done MUCH better, also Ghost isn't as sharp as usual
7/10
15. Clipse Of Doom featuring Trife
Pretty nice beat, not really feeling the guitar that much...but great lyrics!
7/10
16. Jellyfish ft. Theodore Unit (Capadonna, Shawn Wigs & Trife)
Nope not my shit...it's Bulletproof Wallets all over again, but it's ok.
4/10
17. Dogs Of War ft.Raekwon & Theodore Unit
Damn Pete Rock why did you add that fucking guitar????? i fucking hate it! it almost ruins the track for me, cous the rest of the beat and lyrics is sick...:-(
6/10
18. Barbershop
One of my favorite tracks from the advance, but now it has been reduced to a skit :_( WHYYYYYYY!!!!!! Why the fuck did he take off the second verse????? I really would like to know that! but the beat is absolutely sickness+ the remaining lyrics is heat...
damn what was he thinking of?
9/10
19. Ms. Sweetwater (Skit)
20. Big Girl
Nice soulful track...typical Ghost, could have been on Pretty Tony
7.5/10
21. Underwater
Damn VERY creative...i love this shit! only Ghost could do this
9/10
22. The Ironman Takeover (Skit)
23. Momma ft. Megan Rochell
Ahh was expecting this to be much worse, it's decent...
5/10
24. Three Bricks ft. The Notorious B.I.G. & Raekwon (Bonus Track)
damn why was this added??? I fucking hate people reusing Pac and Big verses...with that being said the track is decent, but just not on this album.
5/10

I feel very weird about this album, there's some great tracks and all, but overall im just not blown away by it. It's just another good album from Ghost on level with Pretty Tony...i actually wish i've never heard the advance, cous it makes you feel like there's something missing, and there is!
I'll never understand why he decided to ruin Barbershop by deleting he second verse from it? why he decided to cut the best verse from The Champ? why there's no room for tracks like Charlie Brown and Murder Goons? He could have cut 3 Bricks and one of the other below par tracks.
Also im pretty disappointed by Pete Rock, he didn't bring the heat on any of his two tracks.
But with this being said, it is a solid album, a good album actually! But just knowing that it could have been much better makes me feel weird about it...don't know yet really, but as of now i'll give it 4 out of 6.
Peace

^ i agree with some of what you said. But i think youre over-looking Jellyfish. Thats one of the best songs on there. And id give clipse of Doom a 8. Buts its on a much higher level than pretty toney!
