As good as Liquid Swords, almost as good as 36 Chambers. Stellar.

Good, would be better if it wasn't so long. Production is good, great often times. I think the album suffers a bit from age, like most 90s hip-hop it just sounds so dated that the test of time hasn't been completely fair to this album.

Best Wu album for me and RZA's most solid production.

So far I'm on track 6 and holy shit. Where did the hip-hop go? This is why I loved the '90s.

Update: This is the greatest album I've heard in 2 years, because that's when I listened to Beach Boys' Pet Sounds. Well done, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah. I love Ghostface Killah's voice and his flows. A lot of flows in this CD. A lot of art, talent, skill, mastery of lyricism. Real hip-hop. This is probably the last great hip-hop album. It reminded me that hip-hop was at least alive in '95.

First GZA had my favorite Wu solo album.

Then ODB.

Now Raekwon.

Man, I love hip-hop.

Dark mafioso stories but told in a ridiculously awesome way, sort of like "Breaking Bad"

This, Liquid Swords, and 36 Chambers make the perfect trilogy. Slow, brutal album.

Damn, the production here is just haunting. RZA really outdid himself.
