intro is heavy, he sampled the same flute from the intro on tical
problem is serious too. He sounds mad hungry on this one.
But so far the glide is a ripper. RZA killed this!

METHOD MAN is back son.......this cd is good man

the 4 RZA produced tracks are sick......RZA is back as a producer too bro.....he brought it for MEF

"THE GLIDE" is a fuckin Wu banga for real man

RAEKWON and METH fuckin kill it....loving RAEKWON verse: "Stack up, you little niggas backup, your raps suck".....RAEKWON comes fuckin hard on this track...

whole album is pretty grimy.....especuially by 2006 standards

props to METH

METH IS back

rough review of wut i've heard so far

Intro - 9
Is It Me - 9.5
Problem - 8.5
Somebody Done Fucked Up - 9
Skit
Fall Out - 7.5
Dirty Mef - 8
4:20 - 10 (After a few more listens, this is my favorite on the album. The xzylophone is nuts)
Let's Ride - 6
The Glide - 8 (DISSAPOINTING BEAT, ALMOST THE SAME THING AS ODB - SKRILLA)
Skit
Got to Have It - 4 (who the fuck produced this garbage?)
Say - 9
Ya Meen - 4
Konitchiwa Bitches - 9
Everything - 7 (Mathematic's voice samples are beyond annoying, Deck seems a little less sharp than he was on Resident Patient)
Walk On - 7.5 (It's good to hear Red and Meth again, the beat is a little weak though)
Skit
Presidential MC - 9.5 (with a little added kung fu at the beginning and end)
4 Ever - 5

after one quick listen, 8.5/10

OK so this is pretty dope after one listen,

The Intro is sick, though the flute, as it's used, is out of place. sounds either Rza or at least RZA-ish

Is It me is dope

The Problem is ok, never really cared for E. Sermon beats, so I'm biased.

Somebody Done Fucked Up
- don't like the beat

Fall Out I didn't really like much, though it sounds slightly better within the context of the album.

Dirty Mef is disappointing. This should have been crazy like Dirty Dancing, the beat is too bland for these two.

4:20
is sick, sick sick. Rza does it again. Good to hear Meth, Street and Carlton together.

Lets Ride
is absolutely by-the-numbers, feels out of place

The Glide is cool but the beat is re-used(ODB- Scrilla)

Got To Have
it is cool

Say
is cool, somwhat bland

Ya Mean
is ok, wish Meth would get "A-List" guests though.
Kinichiwa Bitches is cool but pointless.

Everything is a dope Wu reuinion, Meth always gets hype for these. (for example listen to how Meth attacks the beat on Run 4 Cover from Blackout)

Walk On is absolutely insane. Might be the best on the album. Meth and Red back and forth over some hard drums and a dope sample but.... isn't this the Just Blaze remix to Jay-Z's PSA?

President MC
is cool. beat needs some life though. a piano or strings

4eva is horrible

i dont know why you all aint listing Raekwon & La on the 10th track, especially since their verses were so dope

i cant really review this album now, i need to listen to this for a few weeks to be able to write a credible review, but as for now i can say this cd is after a few hours of constant playing becoming my fav album from 2006 so far
