Method Man's second solo recording is a harder album than his debut, much more focused on rap than the frequent R&B excursions that hit the pop charts on the original Tical
. Though the emphasis on the hardcore makes for a better album, Method Man's own raps are often diluted by the staggering number of collaborations; as usual, almost all of the songs have guests, including Raekwon
, Masta Killa
, Inspectah Deck
, Mobb Deep
, Left Eye
, Cappadonna, Ed Lover
. Between the skits, intros, outros and cameos is an excellent album just waiting to be pruned down.
