5.0 out of 5 stars (Rating 10 out of 10): M-E-T-H-O-D Man, September 13, 2006
This review is from: Tical (Audio CD)
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. It's enjoyable and arguably one of the best solos from the group between Wu's reign back in '93-'97. Unfortunately, no one can say that Meth isn't the same lyrically since this album. Comparing Meth back in '94, is like comparing Snoop Dogg's "Doggystyle" to what he's making today. They're in the same boat.
