People heard this album at the time it was released and said "It's OK". Don't underestimate this, it's better than OK, it's great. I got it a few years back, and listened to it last week, it's a classic! When Ghostface allegedly said that Wu-tang's music was unappreciated because it was so advanced, like feeding steak to a baby, the man was right. Listen to this album again now if it's gathering dust you'll love it. If you don't have it, steal it off your friend who's letting it gather dust, or buy it cheap!

After conquering the rap world on the 1st wu tang clan album,mef was one of the 1st wu members to go solo.Tical is hands down, 1 of the best wu solo cds i've ever heard. The concept of the album is a dark,gothic tone produced by the rza which will keep you hooked straight away! It starts with a strange little flute melody which keeps with the albums tone and then launches into the title track.Not the best track on there,but like all of de songs on this,but is pretty damn good. Track 2 biscuits,is again, not the best,but still amazing.3;Bring the pain is 1 of the standouts on this cd and is an amazing track for mef.All i need is a tribute to his girlfriend which is sensitive, but by no means soppy.What the blood clot is another awesome track,but 4 me it doesn't particularly stand out.Meth vs chef is probably the best track on there,with mef and wu tang mate Raekwon the chef at a lyrical height very hard to reach.In a word:Awesome!Sub crazy is short,but good.Release yo delf another standout track,containing an interpolation of cheesy party anthem,i will survive,but it works! After here each song is awesome, but no stanouts, finishing with the off the hook skunk mix of Method Man, the wu tang classic. The remasterd edition contains a remix of bring the pain, a bangin prodigy mix of release yo delf, and the pc enhanced video 4 bring the pain. This is probably mef's best album,and is essential for wu tang fans, diehard mef fans, or even the casual hip hop fan. This is needed in your collection!!

Although 'Tical' is a very good album, it doesn't quite deserve to be up there with other classic Wu solo projects like Raekwon's 'Only Built 4 Cuban Linx' and GZA's 'Liquid Swords'. It is definitely the darkest of all the Wu and Wu affiliated albums; tracks like 'Mr Sandman', 'Tical' and 'What The Blood Clot' are prime examples of how eerie the beats get whilst 'Bring The Pain' and 'Meth Vs Chef' are prime examples of classic Wu songs (not to say the rest isn't good). Lyrically, Meth never sounded like this again. Here he has a more flamboyant style in his rhymes which made his voice more distinctive. Alas, it's still short of essential because there are a couple of flawed tracks; in 'Sub Power' the beat is a complete mess and 'Stimulation' can only be classed as Average. Still if you like Wu Tang, you'll be satisfied with it as it's cheap too.

If you like hip-hop, you must own this record. Simple as that. This debut solo recording shows Meth's maturing lyrical style, while the beats are dark yet catchy. A classic rap album from an unbelievable talent.

This album is very good and recommended to a hip hop fan, but its not one that is essential to have in your collection.My favourite song is `Bring the Pain`.If you like this, then I would recommend the second Tical installment, `Tical 2000:Judgement Day`

The above word is often abused and used loosely by writers of music criticism. It’s the easiest way we can describe an album that we, personally, think is very good. However, applied to ‘Tical’, Method Man’s first solo album (released in 1994), the word ‘classic’ can be rightly and deservedly tagged across the album cover with a diamond studded marker pen.
Out of the nine members of the Wu-Tang Clan, perhaps only four of them ever had the talent to carry a whole album on their own (Genius, Raekwon, ODB and Mef). Mef stepped forward first, bursting with charisma and energy and after the ’36 Chambers, here was THE man we were all waiting to hear. I’ll be honest, ‘Tical’ rocks, its brilliant. Amongst the other members of the ‘Clan’, his talent his huge, like the difference between Rivaldo and Adi Akinbiyi.
Method Man’s languid and speech impediment infected rapping style murmurs and snarls through the booming tapestry of staggered beats, subterranean bass-lines and (now trademark) Rza production like a monster wading through some murky morass. Although Mef slurs and spits into the microphone like some drunk at a wedding party, his poetry and intelligence are clearly laden with substance and depth. “Bruvvas wanna hang with the Mef,” he asks during ‘Bring the Pain’, “Bring da rope as the only way they gonna hang is by the neck!” is his stunning retort which must have left his peers (huh!) in the Clan spurting out their Cristal.
Buying this album won’t enhance your rep and you certainly won’t be able to play this album at some middle class dinner party to look ‘cool’ in front of your convival company.
