A bit unfocused, with not enough GZA and too much Cappadonna (hey, kind of like recent Wu-Tang albums) but the archival video makes this worth it. Getting to see footage of Raekwon and Inspectah Deck recording their verses for “C.R.E.A.M.” is like witnessing the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
This is the America I believe in.
Farmers' market cupcakes,
A bar without a television,
Method Man doing his laundry,
Going to the mall on a Saturday to watch Island of Lost Souls,
And a middle class blue collar life.
The Limits of Control is about anger.
Only Lovers Left Alive is about apathy.
Paterson is about passion.
