  1. 80
    Expertly produced with perfected lyrical skills. [Oct 2001, p.84]
  2. Although he's the primary MC throughout this album, it's his studio skills that keep listeners on their toes...
  3. Scattershot and immediate, with every track sounding as if it came off the top of his head. [Oct 2001, p.99]
  4. Too many tracks sound like tired Wu cast offs saved from the studio floor to prove that he's capable of doing this in his sleep.
  5. At best, these are semi-finished rejects from 'The W'...
  6. 60
    Lacks some of the cocksure oomph of his debut, though RZA does try to broaden his sonic palette. [Aug/Sep 2001, p.128]
  7. But lacking the original RZA's sense of purpose and ability to evoke top performances from his supporting crew, Digital comes off as a lark.

    An amazing classic album, its because i grew up with music like this that i have no respect for todays upcoming artist. Rza combined awesomeAn amazing classic album, its because i grew up with music like this that i have no respect for todays upcoming artist. Rza combined awesome production with unmatched lyrics that nobody else has these days. People who don't like this album are the type who will prefer simple minded hip-hop. But for real hip-hop heads, an album for the ages. Expand

    I thought that the "Rza's" "Bobby Dighital" was pathetic excuse for a "Hip Hop" album, i wish i hadn't spent my $9.00 on it!!
