DumildeRSep 15, 2009Instant Classic. I bought this album on the same day I bought Jay-Z, and it was like a saturday family day. OB4CL2 is like a special occasion Instant Classic. I bought this album on the same day I bought Jay-Z, and it was like a saturday family day. OB4CL2 is like a special occasion family meal (ThanksGiven works best for an American analogy), no matter how determined you are to eat and taste everything, your mind will never be satisfied on the following day. You will that you missed something, or didn't quite get enough of something else. And fortunately on OB4CL2, you can come back countless times. I listened to it 2 hours straight the first time around. Great production, lyrics, storytelling, ensemble, cameos, etc... I already love this album but it's still growing on me. I feel like I have only touched the surface after about 5 playthroughs.… Expand

One of the albums that we were waiting for too much, but it certainly paid-off. Raekwon (and the rest of Wu) at it's best. Must have for any old school rap fan.
P.S. I hate when people give score of 0. I believe that no music can be that bad and if people just put artist' hard work in to equation for review score it can't be less than 3,4 or maybe a 5.… Expand
DeniseDSep 16, 2009Best of 2009 without a doubt.
JamieJVSep 30, 2009The great album ! the best sequel to first work...the best real hip hop album of the year.
AlexW.Nov 30, 2009Easily one of the best albums this year. be sure to cop the Wu-Massacre commin out Feb 9th 2010.
MycroftWOct 7, 2009Deducted one point for the 14-year wait, other than that it's flawless.
LennyM.Dec 7, 2009This album is pretty much "more of the same" trash. It's not the best Hip Hop album of 2009. Raekwon just tells somewhat deep stories This album is pretty much "more of the same" trash. It's not the best Hip Hop album of 2009. Raekwon just tells somewhat deep stories with okay lyricism. Clipse's Till The Casket Drops and Hell Hath No Fury are MUCH MUCH MUCH better Hip Hop albums. And before you boo me down for saying it's not, how about you ACTUALLY LISTEN to Till The Casket Drops AND Hell Hath No Fury before you come to a final decision. Till The Casket Drops, best Hip Hop album of 2009. Only Built for Cuban Linx Pt. 2, NOWHERE NEAR as deep and inventive as Hell Hath No Fury and Till The Casket Drops.… Expand
