AllMusic Review by

The same year during which the 11-track catalog sampler Best of Method Man and the deluxe edition of Tical were released, Def Jam also bundled standard editions of the rapper's first five releases for the label. Questionably titled, 5 Classic Albums contains Tical (1994), Tical 2000: Judgement Day (1998), Blackout! (with Redman; 1999), Tical 0: The Prequel (2004), and 4:21...The Day After (2006). The first album is, undeniably, a classic, but the other four range from uneven to great. Still, this was a relatively affordable way to obtain a major chunk of the rapper's catalog. It retailed for a cost less than the sum of the albums purchased individually.
