Product Description

Amazon.com

Tune in for the latest installment in the ongoing "Son of the Wu" saga, Tical 0: The Prequel, in which Method Man finds himself in a particularly awkward position. One gets the sense that it was a battle between Mista Mef and Def Jam for the soul of this album and that the label won. Meth's third solo outing radiates a blatantly commercial vibe that risks alienating die-hard Wu-Tang Clan fans, yet it contains just enough hot selections to grab the less judgmental listener's interest. And the hot selections are really what we're here for, right? Surprisingly, the album's many guest appearances provide the most excitement. A newly Def Jam-affiliated Puff Daddy produces and comperes the Missy-accented "Say What," Raekwon injects some old-school Wu flavor into "The Turn," and Busta Rhymes straight kills it with a full-throttle assault on "What's Happenin'." Even longtime Wu-Tang sidekick, Streetlife, adds some nice touches to tracks like "The Prequel." At least Meth's kept his friends close during this transitional period. --Rebecca Levine

Customer Reviews

The beats are boring and the lyrics are just alright.
?
Now I love Method Man as a solo artist and as a Wu-Tang member but Tical 0 is not what most fans of MEF expected.
QuBix
The 3-5 decent tracks are the only thing that prevents me giving this album 1 star.

Every great MC is entitled to one slip up but the problem with The Prequel is that its so bad that Ugod's album(which sucked) that came out in the same year(Ugodzilla) seems more inviting after hearing this. The problem is not just the bad production but Method Man's rhymes were lazy beyond belief. He not only drop some laughables on here but also his punchlines and phrases were extremely dated. Examples: /I tell it like it T I is(Come on Meth, people stopped saying that since SWV was a still a group). /These n***** wanna know how I come ask your dame/(Too Short's been saying that since Shorty The Pimp). /you need to put your walking shoes and step your game up/ and if you aint feeling my style then you can hang up/(WHAT?). Should I go on? It makes no sense for one of the nicest lyricists in the game to spit candy bars like that. The Good: The only decent tracks are The Motto,The Turn featuring Raekwon and Ridin For Outro featuring Black Ice. The Bad:The track The Prequel was a weak way to kick off the album as Meth spits some unenthusiastic bars on the track. Busta Rhymes and Method Man deliver the most dissapointing collabo joints of all time, What's Happenin'(sick beat, mediocre rhymes). I was excited to hear they had a joint together but when I heard it I wasnt impressed. Busta took too long to connect his rhymes and Meth busts some Puffy-style clunkers on here/ wack n***** get pimplapped gimme some powder/click clack running you trap I wont allow it/(SIGH). AfterParty featuring Ghostface, is bland as hell even with the decent beat and how many people are going to bite Snoop Dogg's rhymes from the past? Act Right would clear any dance floor(even though most brain dead ones LOL).Read more ›

I preordered the cd back in May, and think its fair to say I shoulda saved my money. With the exception of The Motto (track 5) and Turn (track 7), theres hardly a listenworthy track. This may not be Meth's fault from what I hear, something about def jam wanting a more commercial type record, but its still a weak effort. His cameos seem stale except for Raekwons, and who knows what missy, busta, or snoop dogg are doing on his tape. Track 5 and 7 sound like some of the older wu solo tracks, which I think are the only songs worth listening. Do yourself a favor and just download those two and skip the rest.

This is easily one of the worst albums of 2004. The single is cool but thats where it stops. Every song on here is some weak attempt to appeal to the commercial fans. The only other decent song on here is "the turn" which has been on the net a year before this album dropped. Meth was originally going to have puff do this album, maybe he should of! At least he might of went platinum with a garbage album. Meth you say you say you dont get enough respect in the game, I wonder why!

Why would Def Jam mess with Method Man's stlye like they clearly did on this cd? I waited six years and looked at every insert on every Def Jam cd since Judgement Day came out that said "Method Man - Tical 0 'coming soon'" for this. If this was a Method Man album, it would be filled with songs like Motto, Turn, What's Happenin', Show, Tease (not exactly meth's style, but still hot), and Prequel. Instead, Def Jam decided to screw with the meth man and I have to listen to songs like We Some Dogs (one of the top five worst songs I've heard in my life) and Rodeo. What happened to songs like I Came to Bring the Pain, Release Yo Delf', and All I Need. Those are types of songs that made Method Man hot, not crumby hooks with beats behind them that sound like they were made on an electric keyboard. If you listen close, you can still find the real Method Man on the cd which makes it worth picking up. I don't mean to hate on Method Man, but I hope his TV show gets canceled real quick (which it definately will) so he can get back in the studio and make another cd the way he wants to.

Before you listen to this album (or any other former Wu solo joint), repeat to yourself: "There will never be another Supreme Clientele, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, Liquid Swords, or Tical..." The ex-Clan members are victims of their own successes. Every new Wu joint inevitably draws comparisons to the laundry list of amazing titles that their members have produced in the past. Tical 0: The Prequel is not a legendary Wu CD. It's not even a great hip-hop/rap joint, but it is still light years better than most of the crap you'll hear on any clearchannel "Kiss" radio station, and there are enough solid tracks to at least give you hope that Meth might have something left in the tank for a future release.
Undoubtedly, this album disappoints for lack of RZA-produced tracks. Today with the emphasis on overproduction and style over substance, tracks laid down by the RZA such as The Turn on Tical 0 (and "Run" on Ghostface's "Pretty Toney") really stand out and remind you what real musical genius can do. Instead, the album is a mix of club-type beats and your generic thumps. Again, compared to what else there is to be had, this is still pretty good stuff.
Also a noticable weakness on this album are the guest vocals. The only good guest spots come from Busta Rhymes and fellow Wu Ghostface and Raekwon. Noticable by his low presence on the disc, as well, is Reggie Nobel aka Redman. Meth and Red seem to bring out the best in one another and its a shame he is limited to one guest verse on one of the weaker songs on the disc. Similarly wasted are cameos by Snoop Dogg (who at this point is almost a cliched parody of himself) and Ludacris. "Rodeo" w/ Luda could have been a good track if Meth had just let the Mouf of the South freeflow and bring a little humor onto the disc.
