One quick listen and damn, I can't remember the last album that had so many tracks stand out to me. The whole vibe of the production is very boom bap-ish and it's definitely one of the most aggressive cd's to come out in a long time that doesn't sound like a 2 dollar mixtape.

Perfect example is that Jada & P joint, not something you'd play at your family lunch.

First it has to stand the test of replay value. I always burn a copy for the car radio and I put the album in the mp3 player when I'm running. The general statistic show that I get tired of todays albums in 2,3 days. Last album that I listened to for 1 month straight was Ultimate Victory (bought that one). But this one is definitely off too a great start.

I like how although RZA did not do a majority of the production on this album, it still has had core Wu-Tang sound to it. Updated a lil bit but this is not a album that you would say it does not sound like something a Wu member would do.

I really can't deny your comment but ...

his two solo releases (no said date & made in brooklyn) have this real genuine feel to them that I appreciate.  They're raw and it's just him mc'ing.  Some of the tracks feel like he just went the booth, spit his best, and put it on the record.   

plus, from my understanding, he doesn't do all the lame ass drama that the other members do.  like joell oritz he doesn't speak on drama and stays on the low letting the music speak for itself

Here's a couple more: no U-God, and no verse from RZA (except for his Black Mozart outro). U-God and RZA had classic verses on the first album. Also, I was looking forward to hearing "Rockstars And Smoking Barrells" (but it got cut, due to sample clearence issues I think). These minor complaints don't bring the album down, though. I'll def. be playing this for many years to come. "Kiss The Ring" (what a great way to end the album, fck'n classic). Raekwon did it.

after first listen, very, very dope, thoroughly entertaining from front to back....the overall cohesiveness of the album is brilliant, each track flows seamlessly into the next......some throwback music in terms of raw uncut hip-hop, no filler at all.....i dont think a better follow up to a classic original album could have been executed (on some ol' chronic 2001 shit as far as part two albums go)....he pulled off the almost impossible task of creating an album that is on the same level of its classic predecessor (yes, i know rae has had two follow up albums prior to this, but i meant predecessor in terms of name)

Congrats to the chief, the album sounds crazy !!
I remember being hyped about it about 4 years ago when it was suposed to drop on aftermath and entirely produced by Dr. Dre / RZA (+ a few J Dilla tracks that he already mentionned).
It's not a dissapointment at all.

Very cohesive album with no fillers, great features. Rae is on fire and the production is close to perfection.

My favourites are "new wu" and "kiss the ring" (insane beat from Scram).

The Dre tracks sound like they are 5 years old, and they probably are. Still, they of course are great, no surprise there.
The fast piano part on "about me" reminds me a little bit "it hurts".

WU TANG CLAN  8)

Relegious fundamentalism doesnt have nothing to do with this track, word Jihad or Gihad in its true form means STRUGGLE plus by the way this song is a about hood life, not about talibans takin over the world. Why are you commenting on a song you didnt even check?

Just cause I used to give you some of my time and chat with you on msn doesnt mean you know me. Listen to me man, you should invest some of your time in education and english grammar for real and thats not a diss from me, its a friendly advice.

That could be a good investment for you , you would feel better and more complete cause you could understand what Im writing here and it would be less complicated for you to understand a song or even a simple word like Gihad/Jihad.

I hope u understand.

so because they didn't purchase the album, they can't comment on it's status of quality?

i've never owned a copy of NWA Straight Outta Compton but I can safely say that it's classic.

Its a classic because the hip hop community says its a classic, not because you do.

Bought, stole, downloaded, whatever. If you haven't listened to an album all the way thru, you really shouldn't be commenting on its quality.

i can see why youd like it but dont you think that song was mad outta place on there? still enjoyed it but i totally doesnt fit the album. this is an unbelievable return from raekwon that im sure most of us thought would never happen. only a few weeks ago i posted on here sayin the chances of this album bein good were slim to none. i was dead wrong. my only complaint for the album is that there wasnt enough ghostface but thats just fussin.

10 bricks.... wow this shit is crazy

Since Wu-Tang forever, the streak of Wu-Tang's classics ended. We had some classic Ghostface and some solid projects. But I think this is the closest Wu-Tang related project to touch the level of the golden era. What a great CD, a potential classic CD. I was doubting Rae's hype for a bit.

And if Budden thinks he's better than Rae after this CD he needs another punch to the shoulder. Slaughter House was a very good cd, but this CD rapes it

You know that an album is great when you have so many candidates for the best/favorite track:

House Of The..., Sony's Missing, Black Mozart, Gihad, Bagging Crack, Surgical Gloves, Broken Safety, Canal Street, Ason Jones, Have Mercy, 10 Bricks, Catalina, About Me

And the tracks that aren't mentioned are strictly because I'm not feeling the production. Only exception is Kiss The Ring, which has such an amazing beat and great hook from Inspetach Deck but Rae and Masta Killa rap like they about to fall asleep.

yeah i mean some of the wu sites are goin damn near insane bout this album..given their wu sites but still and the album sounds dope and might be the best album in a minute period (coast 2 coast)




damn im sayin more....maybe double
from the buzz its been gettin maybe even more
interestin to see what happens




I say dudes gonna move more then 30k in first week

Lately nothing can surprise me, its too hard to make it today, but yea you are right, I hope he will sell more then 50k first week
'Cause the hardcore Wu fans have been waiting on this album for nearly 5 years and Rae came through with a banger that made believers out of the doubters.

It's not going to set any trends like OBFCL did (a lot of rappers started giving themselves aliases and rapping mafioso style due to the impact of this album). The music and lyrics on OBFCLII is right up there, though, with the 1st one, IMO.  I haven't heard an album this good and cohesive in the past decade.

IMO, yes. Just browsing my WMA for great hip-hop albums of the last decade: The Slim Shady LP, Tha Streetz Iz A Mutha, 2001, The Marshall Mathers LP, Supreme Clientele, Stankonia, Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, Last Of A Dying Breed, The Fix, The W, The Blueprint, Hood Rich, 1st Cee-Lo Solo, The Eminem Show, Stillmatic, Phrenology, Quality, Get Rich Or Die Tryin', 213-The Hard Way, To Tha X-Treme, College Dropout, No Said Date, MM..Food, The Sound Of Revenge, Ultimate Victory, Grandmasters, Trauma, The Documentary, Doctor's Advocate, Late Registration, Graduation, 808's..., Searching For Jerry Garcia, Thug Motivation: 101, Hell Hath No Fury, Fishcale, The Pretty Toney Album, St. Elsewhere, Idlewild, Nas' Untitled, I, BTNHResurrection, Strength & Loyalty, A Song For You, Be, UGK, American Gangster, Food & Liquor, The Cool, 8 Diagrams, Waitin' Our Turn, Pro Tools, Emeritus, The Carter 2, Blaqkout, Relapse, Dopium, Chamber Music... I know I missed some, and many of these can be argued as not the "greatest" of the past decade, but I do think OBFCLII is a more cohesive and better album than all of these listed. It takes time, though, to think of an album like this. But, I know 10 years from now this album will get plenty of spins from me.

Best album in the last decade?

It's a good MAFIOSO rap but it's all lies and story telling so it's like Rick Ross.  Both made good records but they only carry so much credibility to me because it ain't the truth.  I like fictional stories every now and then so I'll bump it then but I prefer real shit. 

Besides Masta Killa two albums are better than ... :) 
I know no one will agree with that statement so ... :)


I'd take Reks Grey Hairs over this record any day.  Shit, I'd take 50's Get Rich or Die Trying over this.

Man, it's all entertainment. Ain't any rappers living up to what they say in their rhymes. Rae's a real dude from the streets, so he can paint pictures like this. And to say GRODT is better storytelling and music than this is ridiculous (but to each their own). Masta Killa's albums are dope, too (No Said Date is a classic in my book), but don't live up to this album.

For me, not that I have to say this because whenever I type I'm obviously inserting my thoughts and opinions, I'd take an album where there's an ounce of truth even if it's been glamorized and sensationalized a bit over say a complete piece of fiction.

Maybe if they had better production and actually had more songs with some actual meaning besides spazzing out.

Really solid album, loses steam towards the end and could lose a few tracks though. Best hip-hop album I've heard since Doom's last one but I think it's the only release I've listened to since then so what the fuck do I know.

Just over 71 minutes I believe which is the same length as the first pretty much and yes it is 22 tracks. 

There certainly isn't any tracks that are horrible but hip-hop albums are too long in general. The thing this album does right though is that the length of the tracks is on average between 3-4 minutes. If I was to remove some tracks it would probably be the Dre tracks which just seem tacked on, Dre's sound is too clean and doesn't work when most of the tracks have a sort of rough/soulful/dark sound. I'd probably also lose the Jadakiss joint and maybe Surgical Gloves and Kiss The Ring which would make the album about 55 minutes long.

Album is a modern day classic as is. And taking off "Broken Safety" and "Kiss The Ring"? Are you out of your mind, those are 2 of the hottest tracks on the album. Only thing I agree w/ here is "Surgical Gloves" (song is bangin', but doesn't fit the vibe. The Dre tracks sound like Dre, but they do fit in w/ the album). Either way, I'm more than happy w/ the way this album turned out (except I was really anticipating "Rockstars & Smokin' Barrells").

I'm not really a Jadakiss fan so that's probably why I'd take Broken Safety off. Kiss The Ring I'm not sure about, not really feeling the sample and feel that Ason Jones would be a much better closer for the album.

The Dre tracks just don't work for me beatwise though, Catalina starts with a sample from The Killer with the classic theme and I'm wondering what's coming next and it's just the same old Dre *clap* *piano* *clap*. Don't like the chorus either.

About Me is a bit better with that ahwoo vocal repeating in the background, the drums again don't work for me.

Really though the album is great and I have no serious issues with any of the tracks. Definitely one of the best albums of recent years.
