As mentioned by Sykonee, Immobilarity didn't receive critical acclaim or see commercial success but it's possibly my favorite Reakwon album. It didn't have the Wu-Tang sound or a snappy single or really much promotion. These things worked against it st the time and I think still do today.

For me it worked because it was a such a departure. Face it, at the time we were all getting sick of the weak Wu-Tang sub-projects and affiliates. The Rza's production became shoddy when he quit sampling and their in-house producers were just making vague shadows of his sound. '99 was really the begining of the Wu's decline.

Immobilarity's only real flaw was it should have ended with "The Table" and thew "Sneakers" after the "Outro" as a hidden track which were becoming popular at the time. Seriously burn a CD like this, give it a spin and let it ride. You'll come to realize that this was a concept album, a soundtrack to a "Wu-Gambino's" flick that doesn't exist. Every track leads into the next and reveals the plot. This album must be taken in as a piece, that is until "Sneakers" which is a great song but doesn't fit the album and the remaining tracks just bring the album's flow to a halt.

I feel that the album was ahead of it's time. Think Jay-Z's "American Gangtser" with the Jazz/Soul samples replaced with "The Godfather"'s string's and piano and "Scarface"'s late 70's early 80's pop synths. But in the bling era of multi-disc releases there was no room for a 50 minute laid back ghetto crime story on a major label. Today that wouldn't be an issue. Give it a chance, it's a worthy follow up to "Only Built 4 Cuban Links".
