Entertainment WeeklyDec 5, 2014For Ghostface aficionados, Seasons is easily superior to the new Wu-Tang joint, A Better Tomorrow. [5 Dec 20014, p.78]
Dec 9, 2014While it's not the Clan in full, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better supporting cast. If Tomorrow is, in fact, the group's swan song, 36 Seasons proves that Wu's members can do just fine--and maybe even better--on their own.
Dec 16, 2014It hits all the notes that you want from a Wu-Tang Clan affiliate, and is much a more satisfying project than "A Better Tomorrow."
Dec 9, 201436 Seasons may not be Ghostface’s greatest project, but it is another notable addition to his extensive body of work. Rapping alongside Kool G Rap and AZ for the bulk of the album is certainly a treat, and the two have their own moments of glory. Production, on the other hand, simply does not hold on to the lyrical dynamism present between Ghost, Pharoahe Monch, AZ and G.
Dec 9, 2014It's an urgent, soulfully steely album of hip-hop unconcerned with the genre's current twists into pop structures and woozy electronics.
Jan 29, 2015It’s not the second coming of Ironman, but tracks such as Love Don’t Live Here No More, Emergency Procedure, Homicide and Blood On The Streets make this one of the best Wu-related releases of recent years, confirming Ghostface as its most consistently engaging member.
Dec 10, 2014Even at its best, however, 36 Seasons lacks the maniacal forward drive that propels Ghostface’s most electrifying works.

Mellow beats, seductive vocals, top notch rhyming and a consistent theme running throughout, that of coming back to the hood and seeing how much it's changed.

Dec 21, 2014EASILY album of the year. Easily. This album is absolutely insane. The ONLY reason why I wouldn't give this thing a 100% perfect score isEASILY album of the year. Easily. This album is absolutely insane. The ONLY reason why I wouldn't give this thing a 100% perfect score is because of the weird musical interludes and because I felt Pieces To The Puzzle (although not a bad song) didn't quite fit in with the overall sound of the album and it was kind of jarring. Otherwise this thing is GLORIOUS. AZ absolutely shines as a recurring special guest. The concept of the album was dope and the live instrumentation provided by the Revelations was just that... a revelation. The first track of this thing floored me, lush jaw dropping production. Great album and everything I want from the Ghost.… Expand
