That whole vibe of the album played front to back is great, If you copped this around the time it came out you will consider this a classic but I can also understand how newer fans would pick this up and not really dig it that much.

Nearly 10 years later though and this album still retains it's dark atmosphere. At the time (94), Wu Tang had to deliver on their potential displayed on their debut and they did just that with this release. Had it been any longer, it would've suffered but the length is pretty much perfect. (saved for the tacked on unneeded Method Man remix)

I never really got into Tical. The album is ok, but I think that the atmosphere/beats where to dark for meth (Beats would suit a rzarektah/gravediggaz album more IMO). Having said that I prefer meth on this vibe as opposed to the later stuff he released.

Mr sandman is that joint though.

There is a sameness to some of the beats, sounds like one thick bass heavy soup if that makes any sense. Many times I've tried to get into this album, but still some songs stick out and others don't.

I've always wondered whether the remaster was worth the purchase. Is there really a noticeable difference in sound? If so I'd buy it. I might appreciate the album more.

@zooruka : Mr Sandman is one of the illest Wu posse cuts for sure. The elusive Carlton Fisk shines on this one! He spits one of my favorite all time Killa Bee verses on here.
