I've given this one listen so far, and it's solid as a whole. 3 or 4 of the beats really weren't up to par, and it threw me off a bit when the opening beat basically sounds like a southern club song. There's really no reason why the production couldnt be top notch when both guys could have easily contacted 7L, Godz Wrath, 4th Disciple, etc.

Still need to digest all the lyrics, but there is some sick stuff on here.

i just copped this. i don't understand all the hate. this album is sick. i think some of y'all got real fucked up ears. some of the beats aren't the most complex shit ever - so what. this is an ill collabo. who cares if it was recorded in 2 days, it sounds just right to me. i hope they do a part 2.

i'm on track 4 reflections. what's wrong with the beat? call me crazy or whatever you want niggaz this album is bangin. fuck the hate.

This is an ill album, both priest and kamachi are fire. The beats are dope, i dont get all the hate. Its a solid cd and both mcs deliver, but im more of a lyrical person so if the lyrics are tight then im good, the beats come second usually

This joint is dry. Priest not even top notch on here. He is 50/50. Kamachi went in. The beats are dry, I can't get through the whole album...

i liked it. it is what it is....just 2 MC's that wanted to spit a bunch of ill verses together b/c they think they fit well together. i wouldnt even call it a concept album. i think its cool...again just 2 MC's spitting some ill verses....no real concept or point. and i wasnt disappointed in the beats like a lot of others. i got it about 5 days late, and saw a bunch of people trash the production before i heard it. i liked the beats.
out of 12 songs, i like 7 of 'em a lot.

good stuff. not disappointed. and YES, kamachi did go in on here!!!

Shyt, this album is fire!!! Great chemistry!!! Production is really good, and Killah Priest is spittin some serious shyt almost over whole album, tho' there are 2 or 3 tracks I'm not feelin him on!!! Kamachi is nice!!! So all in all, pretty good album, and one more of these superior Wu-Releases lately!!!

If the poll is still open, I would vote prolly for BANGER!!!

Lyrics are on point as usual. Chief Kamachi suprised me on a few tracks too. The beats are good, but could be better. Overall - Solid.

Top 5: All Hail, Illest (my fav), Time Out Revisited, Don't Waste Your Lungs, Scrolls

Grade: (3.5/5) B

I just don't get this what is wrong with this album? Someone please tell me, i am not a technical person when it comes to music, i listen to music from a consumer's point of view and from where i am standing, the album is just fine, mos def not a classic, but mos def a banger both lyrically and beatwise

Just not feeling it. The only track I actually listen to is All Hail, sometimes the Illest, but other than that I'm not feeling this shit. Weak effort in my personal opinion.

Have to say, this album is better than i expected. Yeah it isnt amazing or anything but i was expecting something pretty wack.

Track 3 and 4 are dope, great beats, but the rest of the beats leave something to be desired. Idk what Sheepish is talking about, saying there 'dark' coz there not.

Lyrically Priest comes correct on some tracks, although hes lacking in a few, Chief Kamachi is reletivly similar thoroughout. Nothing amazing, but decent.

6.5 or 7/10
