As a completely instrumental album, this isn't the sort of thing you'd be expecting for the first release of a new Wu-Tang Clansman, but it sets the stage for what may be a devilishly good first album. The beats on this release have that simple complexity that Wu-Tang beats are known for, with a simple repetitive head-nodding beat, plus a complex melodic background behind the bass. Lyric lovers may find themselves a touch bored listening to an instrumental album, but the fact that it was created with those intentions has given the producers many advantages, allowing them to expand the melodies properly. In summation, this is a collection of Wu breakbeats at their finest, melded into a journey of abstractness with a hip-hop beat, and definitely worth a listen.
