IT was a good album but I would put last of the four wu albums.

I agree with your review, but You thought radioactive was wack. LOL. I thought that was the best song on the album. The uzi was not that bad.

I dont respect all the hate on this album. Its the weakest out of all the clan albums, but its still a banger. Lyrically Wu comes pretty good, production is where I think most people throw theyre hate on. Most of the beats on the album are dope bangers, some are medicore and could have been replaced. Still a dope joint.

I was kind of disapointed at this album. It really should have been better. I dont think its better than "The W". The best song on the entire album is " Yall been warned".....that joint is dope as hell!!!

It's a pretty bleh album... seems unfocused to me, Highlight tracks: Babies, Uzi, In the Hood. There were some really weak tracks, I hated Chrome Wheels and Soul Power, Dashing I thought was a weak track. Then there were some songs which just coulda been better, like needed more energy, The W & Iron Flag for example.
Overall 6/10

i still need to find the time to gather enough patience to hear this album PROPERLY but everytime i try to the hear the album i dont hear or feel the Wu elements, like Dashing is on some nursery rhymes chorus shit . But maybe im hating on the beat selection used throughout the whole album; which at most times does not glove with the tight lyrics; coz the clan still has lyrical ability but the beats need to glove with the MC's. Lyrics on Dashing iz ill Gza & Ins; Babies is FucKING ill alltogether beats & mc's and then its the W; that finishes off the tracks that im able to listen to without me seeking thru the track until i just fast forward; but hey, time will show how still i stand with this opinion THUS making this album MY LEAST FAVORITE of all Wu albums

IN THE HOOD - An instant classic. All three MC's rip the mic into shreads and tha beat is a fucking banga! - 5/5
RULES - This is more like sum kinda party shit but it works. Lyrics are very average but Ghost saves this one. Great beat from Math!!! - 3/5
CHROME WHEELS - This song is out of place.. The beat iz on sum serious digi shit. The singing in the chorus gets very irritating.. Two on da road and RZA don't really impress. Obviously the weakest track on tha album. I always skip this when listenin' this album. 1.5/5
SOUL POWER - Damn I remember years ago when I used to bump this shit so hard!!! But now it has gotten pretty boring... Beat is nuttin' special, Flava Flav doesn't belong to dis song really. Regardless, Ghost and Masta rip it - 3/5
UZI - A party type song, not bad at all... Nice when all tha clan members (except for ODB) drop a verse here. GZA outshines everybody here. "The blind couldn't verify the authenticity" - 3.5/5
ONE OF THESE DAYS - Nice beat but it quickly gets boringggg... U-God is unbelievably wack on this track, the other MC's dont shine that much either. Skippable. 2/5
Y'ALL BEEN WARNED - This is straight up DOPE!!! Nice punchlinin' here... Rae's and MK's duetto is the best part.. One of the best track on tha album. 5/5
BABIES - This track has the sweet soul vibe on it... Great storytelling from Ghost, Rae and GZA.. One of the best beats from the RZA i've heard at this century. 5/5
RADIOACTIVE - Sumtimes I just luv the beat, sumtimes I just can't stand it... MK and GZA drop sum real jewels here, Meth and Rae come nice as well. 4/5
BACK IN THE GAME - First I really didn't feel the Trackmasters beat, but now it has grown on me... GZA is fucking magnificient on this one!!! Best verses I've ever heard! Ghost is mad nice too. 5/5
IRON FLAG - This Is Pure Dopeness!!! Oh man, the RZA did great job wit the beat... Rae, Deck and Masta at their best.. Could listen to this track all over and over - 6/5
DASHING - GZA and Deck tag team on this one.. GZA is mad dope as usual, wasn't really feeling Deck... Da beat is very average too. - 3/5
THE W - This track is quite boring. GZA easily outshines everyone here.. Beat is nuttin' remarkable. - 2.5/5

Overall 3.5/5

Obviously this is the weakest Wu-album, but still quite nice... I got sum seriously grimey underground shit on it plus sum party vibe songs... Lack of RZA's vocals plus total absence of ODB are the biggest minuses on the album. And sum songs don't fit the album at all. MK and GZA shine the most. Without a handful of tracks this would've been a classic album.
