I love the whole Wu, all their debut solo efforts were timeless, IMO its a toss up between this and Liquid Swords


October 29, 2014
CAUTION! BLACK SLEEVE!!! This LP comes in a black sleeve, there is NO ARTWORK AT ALL!

Without question, one of the 10 greatest hip hop albums of all time. Period.

There was time when it seemed that every member of the Wu could do no wrong (after Method Man& Old Dirty's L.P's) and for me this is the best solo album of the lot.Ray's brutal and graphic street lyrics and mafia metaphors meet with the Brilliant production of RZA,with his cinematic martial arts and John Woo skits combining with his soul drenched samples and massive beats.Most of the Wu bring their A Grade rhymes to the table with Ghostface being the standout M.C.The best track "Rainy Days" With the lovely Voice Of Blue Rasperry is one of the Wu's great moments.
