Editorial Reviews

Ever since the sultan of shaolin grabbed the spotlight on Wu Tang Clans' 1993 epic enter the Wu Tang (36 Chambers), meth has been in yo face and in yo ears. Whether holding it down with the Wu on the group's 3 subsequent CD's (97's Wu Tang forever, 2000's the W and 2002's Iron Flag), his solo joints - 94's Tical, 98's Tical 2000: Judgement day, blackout 1999's collaboration with partner in crime and rhyme Redman, 2004's Tical 2000: The prequel, guest spots on other folks' hits, "Love at 1st Sight" with longtime collaborator Mary J. Blige, "Still On it" with Ashanti & Paul Wall, and big screen spots on "CSI," "The Wire," and "How High." Method Man has made damn sure that folks not only know who he is but appreciate what he is capable of. Nice on the mike, easy on the eyes, hot on stage, cool on screen, Method Man has become more than Just a rapper but still remained the ultimate rapper in the game. With a lyrical style that is unpredictable, yet instantly recognizable and a persona That runs the gamut from low-key menace to hyped up stoner, meth has brought the pain, and staked his claim, waiting to make his next move. That move is the eagerly anticipated 4:21... The day after. This album takes meth back to 1993 When hip hop was unsaturated and Method Man & RZA were in the studio making magical music.

A lot of people base their reviews on how an album compares to one of its precessors. No matter how much effort he might put into the album, another Tical will never happen. Instead, we need to recognize that although 36 chambers, Tical, Liquid Swords, etc. were some of the best albums of all time... the fact is that artists evolve, as well as their sound. So try to not to compare it to music from over 10 years ago... instead compare it to music now, and the state of hip hop at the moment.

When looked at from that perspective, this is an excellent album. For the most part, I dont think it sounds anything like Tical, though I will admit that it has a gritty style that is slightly reminicent. Rest assured, it is much better than Tical 0.

Most of the tracks are real tight, with excellent production from a variety of people. I especially like the intro, Is It Me, Problem, Fall Out, Dirty Mef, 4:20, The Glide, Say, Konichiwa B****s, Everything, and Presidential MC. To be honest, the other tracks are good too. Cop this album cause it's dope, and it's just another example of how Wu-Tang is having a reawakening. With Masta Killa, Ghostface, Inspectah Deck, and Method Man dropping hot albums so far this year, and the highly-anticipated Raekwon album coming real soon, it's a good year for hip hop.... if you know where to look.

This CD definately shows good improvement compared to recent years. After listening to Method Mans previous CD Tical 0 the Prequel I thought it was over. However on this CD I was surprised to find that the majority of the tracks are tight and more than a handful are slammin. Presidential MC is SICK! Thats in a category of Wu music that goes right back to the roots and I thought songs like that could not be made anymore. I was one of those from back in the day when Method Man first came out and was almost speachless listening to him flow sometimes. I would have said he was like the definition of raw underground hip hop at one point. However when judgement day hit the shelves it was all down hill from there. Only shining on other peoples tracks and getting to seem more and more commercial as the years went by. His rhymes never fell off or anything but I cant explain it, he just didnt shine anymore. However I am relived to say that he appears to be making a comeback and this is the most solid effort Ive seen from Meth in years. Stick to RZA production and stay away from R&B hooks and keep it raw! That gritty gritty. Bring back the golden Era of Hip Hop. Hip Hop is NOT Dead!

I'm so glad to see Method Man back to true form. I lost all faith after The Prequel and just happened to run across this CD. Reluctantly, I gave it a listen and soon after bought it. I really like both Tical and Tical 2000 but I think this has to be my favorite. I just hope he can keep it up on his next album.

I have no idea whether or not this is his best album because "4:21...The Day After", Method Man's 4th studio effort, is the only album I've listened to by the Wu-Tang superstar. What I do know is that Method Man has some serious MC'ing and lyrical skills, as displayed on the stellar lead single "Say", an acoustic guitar-driven rap song where Method Man fires back at haters and critics with some of the dopest lyrics I've heard in a while, PLUS the legendary Lauryn Hill is sampled singing a cover of an anonymous Bob Marley hit.

For what it's worth, "4:21...The Day After" is a good album as a whole -ESPECIALLY when put next to today's radio-friendly Pop-Rap and Hip-Pop-, enlisting help from the likes of Erick Sermon, RZA, Raekwon, Kwame, Megan Rochell & O.D.B. amongst others, but if you compared it to Ghostface's latest effort "Fishscale", it'd most likely be crushed.

Method Man's intentions are displayed early on in the intro. Stoners furiously protest about legalizing marijuana and other drugs, and it's not long before Method Man starts spitting some fire before finishing it off by angrily stating, "How could you ever say that I'm washed up/When I'm the dirtiest thing in sight?" It's not long before Method Man's relentless, celebratory hate-fest kicks into full gear, blasting critics and modern rappers with his grimy flow and uncompromising lyrics to varying degrees of success.

Scott Storch's tired-out piano loops (which sound re-used from Paris Hilton's "Fighting Over Me") don't do much damage to Method Man's lyrical assault on the music industry on "Is It Me".
