Over the last two years Ghostface has been Wu Tang’s busiest body: Die II comes on the back of the superb Sour Soul (with BADBADNOTGOOD), which was fresh off 36 Seasons, which was a year removed from the original Twelve Reasons To Die. Adrian Younge’s film score-like production on this latest team-up doesn’t feel as atmospheric or inspired as their first go-round; and despite casting Raekwon and RZA in a ‘70s crime story, this isn’t among Ghostface’s better-realized concepts. While this prolific streak has coincided with some of Ghostface’s best work since Fischscale, this sequel record may signal a loss of steam. (

Yea whoever wrote this is clearly unaware on what quality craft for Wu Tang is. Seems like this commentary was more fit for describing Twelve Reasons To Die I, bc this is clearly and upgraded and properly arranged album with HIGH potential of a follow up for a Part 3. Not speaking from the ideal fan’s perspective but one of an ear for artistry detail. 5.5? Is an unfair rating for this album.
