Tical and Liquid Swords are my two favorite Wu albums.
Start with Title Track "Tical" [Slang use by Method, mean Weed] this a good song, Slow tempo beat, extremely dark, with the chorus sounds nice!
Grew up with these james one of the best old school raps albums to date.

Everyone waited after hearing the Enter the Wu album. Everyone waited to see what would come next. Never before had hip hop seen a group so filled with talent and promise made up of so many different members. 2 years later, they got Tical.

This album picked up right where Enter the Wu left off, further developing the Wu-Tang style of beats and rhymes. Method Man had established himself as a standout talent on the Enter the Wu album and people knew they would be hearing and seeing a lot more of him. This album delivered the first legitimate solo installment for the Wu. No one who listens to hip hop and who owned this album doesn't have a feeling that is brought back when they hear this album. I was in high school when this album dropped and hearing it brings me back to that time each time I hear it.

The production is amazing: grimey and live. The rhymes are staggering. It's the perfect mixture of style and attitude.

A classic, this album kicked off the solo ventures of the Wu-members that would span the next decade.

The Dirt. The Grimey, the basement beats and sound quality, the straight up RAWNESS. This is the real Method Man. The rough cat, the blunted, the crazy look, the dirty style, the charisma, theflow, the lyrics...oh my. He gave Wu-Tang its first star. Forget ODB, Forget Ghostface Killah, Forget The Rebel INS...When this album dropped he was the BEST member in Wu-Tang. Who could forget M.E.T.H.O.D. Man?
Tical was the second classic that had the W stamp on it. Everything you love about the Wu could be found in here. The Rugged beats, the street rhymes, the raw, the real anthems. Low sound quality ( at times you can't even hear what he's saying) and all that is a straight fiyah classic from Wu-Tang's most known member ( other than ODB of course). His flow is untouchable on this cd. Non rehearsed, freestyle sessions no retakes this is where it's at. The classics are here to... Bring Da Pain, All I Need, What The Blood Clot, Meth Vs. Chef, Release Yo Delf, Biscuits...the whole cd. IF you don't have this I feel sorry for you. Nothing else to say. 5 Stars.

Format: Audio CD
After the phenomenal "Enter the Wu Tang: 36 Chambers" was released, the next goal of the clan was to get the members on individually, and Meth was first out of the gate. Being the first post "Enter the Wu" release, this album does not disapoint. It is Rza as a producer, and Meth has an Emcee, in their rawest and ruggedest form. The beats on this album touch all different types of sounds with the rawness attached to it, and the final result was a bizarre twist of dark funk and strange noises which flow with Meth's signature raspy voice and style. Though it wouldn't be terrible if the album was filled with the whole clan making guest appearences, it is perhaps better you only get a few, making this mostly a Meth + Rza production, both in top form.
Perhaps the albums difining moment is on "Bring the Pain", the simple humming with the signature Rza cords make it an excellent beat allowing Meth to spit fire over the track. This is Meth in top-top form where it is more apparent he is a gifted lyracist and not just a blazed out rapper who has a unique style. Although it was mentioned there are only a few collabo's, one of the best tag team/square off Wu records is on here which showcases the groups two most popular members, Meth and Raekwon on "Meth vs. Chef". The two emcees square off in a semi battle rap where both are able to display their different styles and different techniques of word play.
Another one of the top tracks on the album is the "All I Need" which would be a scary "love" song for any other rap act to touch. It is not a pianoed out love ballad with an R&B chorus, it is one of the most raw songs on the entire album due to it's daring beat from Rza.

One member of the Wu-Tang Clan, back in '94 Method Man was known for his raspy voice, his huge afro, and that contact in his eye that made him look like he was blind in one eye. Dropping his debut "Tical" was one of the dopest solo albums from the Wu that many fans appriciated.

Getting right to the point, every song on this album, Method Man rhymes are fresh like he was back on "Enter The Wu: 36 Chambers". The lead single "Bring The Pain" was one of those rhymes as Meth proved that he can carry an album by himself. "All I Need" was another dope song (if you're not aware this is the well known song that was remixed featuring Mary J. Blige. She does NOT appear on here.) as Meth shows love for his girl.(If they decide to reissue this album, I wouldn't mind it being on here.) There are a couple of songs here where I feel Meth reaches his high point. "Sub Crazy" would be one of them, as well as "PLO Style" with Carlton Fisk and "Release Yo' Delf" with singer Blue Rasberry. A classic combination would be the song "Mr. Sandman" that features RZA, Inspetah Deck, Street Thug (now known as Streetlife), and Carlton Fisk, with Blue Rasberry singing in the background. Method Man would remix his selftitled song "M-E-T-H-O-D Man" on the last track of the album, also a great song.

Problems, I can only think of only one, and that is his raspy voice. It's not bad and it's quite unique, but there are points where you have no idea what he's saying because of it. Like the song "Stimulation", I barely can understand what he's saying in the second verse. Other than that, it's all cool.

As you can tell, this is a classic album from the Wu. If you do not have this album, and you're a Wu fan, I HIGHLY recommend that you pick this on up.
