GZA/Genius - Liquid Swords (1995)
Method Man was highly overrated. Inspectah Deck was underrated. Ol' Dirty Bastard was hilarious, and certainly a legend, but often hard to listen to. RZA just never lyrically lived up to his promise (Gravediggaz first album not included). U-God and Masta Killa never really made a dent. Raekwon had a classic, then faultered. Ghostface was an avalanche waiting to happen. Cappadonna was all around shit. GZA was always solid, and this is his best solo effort. Only problem with this are all the minute long interludes to start each track.
