Ok I'll give you 97 Mentality

The album is good, but not classic. That word gets thrown around too freely, making it meaningless.

This whole album brings back so many memories. For me, its perfect. Wouldn't skip a song and would listen to it anytime.

Word, SOS is my favorite track on the album. I really like this album, it´s grimey as hell.

I remember when I first got it (this was actually my first wu-related album btw), I couldn´t really get into it. I was also pretty new to hiphop at that point. I felt it was too dirty sounding, it felt amateurish and not catchy, lol! (yeah, I know). Now, I love it for all those reasons. It certainly has to grow on you, but to a lesser extent when you´re used to this type of hiphop.

I wouldn´t rate it a classic, as so many on this site does. It´s a great album. But alot of the lyrics don´t have enough depth to qualify as classic material.
I also don´t think that alot of the killa bees are talented enough. Not that they´re bad, but compared to the generals, they´re nothing specials.

I´ll rate this album 9/10, and a lot of that goes to the beats alone. To me the best tracks are the ones with the core members on them. I love the sound of the album, it has that pure wu-tang vibe that I love, so fucking grimey.

Wu always had problem with back covers, just look at Liquid Swords or Bulletproof Wallets
