    Nothing new, Ghostface Killah and Sheek Louch work well together, but Wu Block lacks concreteness and quality, which had accustomed us Ghostface Killah.

    If seeker of the hip-hop's next wave need not apply, those with an appetite for rugged, screwfaced late-90's New York rap should find this keeps them scowling like it's 1999. [Mar 2913, p.111]

    Sheek and Ghost may lead the army to battle on every track, but the rotating cast and general camaraderie makes Wu-Block feel like the no bullshit Wu-Tang sort of album segments of the fanbase have been clamoring for since 8 Diagrams.

    The 2012 debut is a pretty accurate throwback to the sound of golden age East Coast rap, complete with soul samples and boom-bap beats.
