    Underrated. Especially coming after Liquid Swords.

    Didn't really need 4 skits.

    Yeah skits were killer for me on this. Especially since I had this on cassette. Hell Razah’ s verse was legendary on Hip Hop Fury. Masta Killa’s guest spots were dope too. Peace

    Still have my cassette. Whoever mixed down this album really needs some kind of engineering medal. Even on cassette, this album sounds as clear as a compact disk.

    Dope album. Completely different soundscape to Liquid Swords. Would have benefitted from trimming off those obsolete skits and adding a couple more tracks.
    Nevertheless, along with SC and T2, were the pick of the bunch of the sophomore round.

    Yeah, for sure, their second albums were good to classics. I'm not sure about Rae's Immobilarity.

    The production is boring in places but otherwise a solid album. The guest features are dope as well.

    Problem with Immobilarity is that the songs are either extremely bad or extremely good. There is no middle ground.

    Classic album no doubt
    it's underrated cause the impact of Liquid Swords was too strong but I wish GZA was able to make as half as good album today
