Oh, Method Man. He really set himself up for this one. Not only is Tical 2000 his second release-we all know avoiding the sophomore slump isn't easy-but it's also the "sequel" to his widely heralded debut. If that wasn't enough, it's a double-album housing a total of 28 (!) tracks. Is it bloated? Sure, but should it get hated on? No, not at all. It has all the making of a solid Wu project, from the producers to the guest MCs, but it's just too long.
These days, people would be praising the album on some, "I'll just delete the lukewarm tracks and keep the greatness." Maybe the digital age isn't so bad after all.
