^^ The best description of overall 8D's value is that - Solid 4!

Cappadonna was really no help on this album, could've been left off (No Disrespect.) I know RZA was trying to experiment but not with this joint, we didn't wait 7 years for this one, EVERYONE knows Wu-Tang can come better than this, I'm sad to see niggas lower their standards on this site, I know some cats really feel it but overall it could've been better, It is some good music on here, but not what i was expecting. No Ghostface really hurt this album too, he killed every verse he did, how could he not be on here? ****Overall 3.5/5****
i'd have to agree with a majority of what you say here, because this album consists mostly of Method Man and Rae...with U-God coming in here and there. What i don't agree on is not enough Ghostface on the album...honestly I don't like Ghost's flow too much because he always talking about material possessions in his verses...i give him credit for being a vivid storyteller, and that's his niche, and he should stick with it. Rae is kinda the same way, except Rae got sick delivery. Not hearing GZA on this album enough was disappointing, but GZA been flowing for more than 30 years now, and has nothing more to prove...you can't forget about Rebel INS!!! Even after a 7 year wait for an album, he still hasn't lost his touch. Sure this album is all over the place, but the Wu live up to that "unpredictable" title.

i'm disappointed by this album like most of y'all are, and i'm wondering if the Wu Clan even care to redeem themselves on the next effort. gotta wait and see, huh?

LOL ^^ for me the beats were the best part

but the rating 3.5/5 is right. Nice songs, not the greatest lyrics, but still better than most other groups, I don't get that album feeling, and there is no group energy or harmony, if we can call it like that [altho how Ghost starts his verse on the opening song using Meth's line is an exception]

6/10
"Get Em Out Ya Way Pa" is i think one of the few, if only one true banger off the album.
the beat is sick and lyrically everyone is on top of it.
and their flow, though a bit more laid back (like just about all of the album is) is perfect for the beat.
aside from that...... i think it's a good hip hop release (good, not great), but when it comes to a wu album.... it's decent. if that.
also, something i've said a fair bit for this album and i mean it strongly- it's a moody release. you really have to have the right weather and overall setting to truly enjoy it.
i bumped the hell out of it when it came out and throughout all of winter. because i live in florida and unless it's winter, it's pretty much gonna be fairly warm and either sunny or some thunderstorms. so without it being cold, overcast, or any of that, i could never really get my head in the right place to WANT to hear 8D.
like it's a pretty good winter release and should be enjoyed as such. but feeling energetic in 90 degree temperature and the sun and humidity making it more like over 100, just can't listen to this cd.
maybe i'm wrong in saying this, but its just my opinion and i feel strongly for it.

again, get the right setting and state of mind and the album will be high enjoyable, but if it's not there, i'd much rather listen to anything else in the wu library (except BDR, seriously think that was an epic fail especially after hearing fishscale, more fish, and pretty much anything else ghost has put out).
so 7.5-8.5 on a good day for the album, but on any regular day down here: 6/10

^^ yes it's definitely a winter joint in the same way as "It Was Written" works better in those times...
