After "Forever", a rambling, lax collection of cuts with few high points, many thought the Wu had fallen off. However, from the slammin' intro of "The W", it is clear they've pulled off a return to form. "Chamber Music", the first track, is simply genious. Excellent martial arts sound effects, followed by wicked far-east background sounds give the track an athmosphere of menace. The rapping is supremely tight, and this kind of rhyming and menacing feel are carried through, even on the worst tracks. Even on these poorer tracks, like the boring "Careful Careful", the Wu's rhymes still outclass most rappers. The Wu are definatley at their best on the faster paced tracks, such as "Redbul" and "Thang Thang", but their new and experimental soul sounds on "I Can't Go To Sleep" provide an emotional listen. All over, a quality album, with a few low points -but even these points are still better than a lot of stuff out there.
