Default OMG, Tical 0 The Prequel is a CLASSIC!

Or at least, that's the type of comment I wouldn't be surprised to see on this forum. I'm getting tired of you guys (not all of you of course, you oughta know if this applies to you) calling nearly EVERYTHING classics, throwing the word around like it has no value. Here are the true stats when it comes to Wu classics:

*UNDISPUTABLE CLASSICS (5/5)*
Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
Liquid Swords
Only Built 4 Cuban Linx

*JUST ALMOST CLASSICS (4.5/5, some just maybe 5/5)*
Tical
Return To The 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version
Ironman
Wu-Tang Forever
Supreme Clientele
No Said Date

^^^ Yea, that's about it. And before any of y'all start yapping, realize that I roughly determine whether an album's classic by two factors: (1) This is the important one, I compare the album's overall quality with of other undisputed classics, like the three listed above and others such as Illmatic, Ready To Die, Reasonable Doubt, The Low End Theory, Midnight Marauders, AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted, and a whole lotta shit from '88. (2) If the album has INCREDIBLE UNBELIEVABLE IMPACT, it can raise a 4/5 or 4.5/5 quality album to 5/5. This applies to very few albums, the main one being NWA's Straight Outta Compton.

So basically, you guys need to stop labeling everything as classics, cuz they're not... for example, No Said Date is GREAT, but just doesn't stack up when you compare it with Paid In Full, Death Certificate, etc. And even worse than that, in another thread I saw a couple people actually called "The W" a classic, which is a total SLAP IN THE FACE of our standards of Hip-Hop. Not to say it's wack, or even just above average, but that album is NOT classic, PERIOD.

AND FINALLY, I'VE GOT THAT SHIT OFF MY CHEST. Any and all replies are WELCOME.

I agree RhymzaRua, you sound like one of the more realist Wu-fans on here, I'm tired of people posting dumb threads about things such as "What if the Wu did this and that" things that sound as if they are degrading towards the Wu, remember that they are human also but, yeah they are lyrical monsters but you got to remember that no one is perfect, I'm tired of peeps on here dwelling on the negative things that the Wu might of went through lets be on a more postitive note, if the Wu was to always dwell on the negative things they might have done or went through then they wouldn't have been able to move forward in there careers, when they thought in a positive way it gave them inspiration to move forward in there careers and to still give us truly fantastic albums, so my point is that we need to post more threads on here that make sense and stop posting stuff like "What if Wu-tang slept with your lady", it's got to stop.

At almost every hip hop site you will see this. Out of so many users, there is bound to be some people that like The Prequel, The Movement, etc. albums and will express themselves.
