The Wu-Tang warrior's second solo joint is so conceptually huge, only somebody who's been high every day for a decade could have imagined it: hip-hop album as science-fiction double-feature as celebrity parade as horror movie as multilayered masquerade as an endlessly Baroque flow of spiels and skits, hallucinatory fantasy, and killer-bee menace. The romantic strains of Tical have been replaced by pure, sweaty sex, and Meth's image transformation from laidback muscle to bloodthirsty cyborg (with a phone book's worth of guest stars) just means he compacts his flow more tightly. The production is the Wu standard of berserk little loops and spare boom-bap, though RZA's tracks are head and shoulders above those of his disciples. --Douglas Wolk

"I remeber when I first heard this album I didnt give it a second listen. But now after hearing it again, its Method Man's best album next to Tical. Perfect World Is not a bad opener and Cradle Rock featuring Left Eye(RIP) is crazy. Dangerous Grounds should have been the first single seeing that it was better than Judgement Day. Method Man shuts it down disrespectfully on Torture and He kills an old school sample on Retro Godfather. Play IV Keeps featuring Mobb Deep, Inspectah Deck and Streetlife is a banger that was never promoted at all(and this song came out at a time when Prodigy was STILL NICE with the mic). Spazzola featuring Streetlife, Raekwon, Inspectah Deck, Masta Killa and Killer Sin is another banger. The title track Judgement Day is not a bad single but it is a bad first single. This is a track that if you dont feel it the first time you might like it another time not a track that is going to make you get the album. Break Ups 2 Make Ups featuring D'Angelo is Method Man's story of his grimy ex-girl and its another standout. The only songs I didnt feel is Suspect Chin Music(suspect is the word) and Sweet Love feat Cappadonna and Streetlife. Plus all those skits(with the exception of the You Play Too Much skit) are pointless to say the least. Bottom Line: Tical 2000: Judgement Day is easily Method Man's most overlooked album and is his best work next to his first one. The production was great, Method Man was still nice with the pen and the guest appearances were great too. Whether you like this album or not doesnt matter but its still a hip hop album regardless, Tical O: The Prequel was pop rap so learn to differentiate the two. Standout Tracks: CRADLE ROCK, DANGEROUS GROUNDS, TORTURE, RETRO GODFATHER, SPAZZOLA, PARTY CRASHER, STEP BY STEP, PLAY IV KEEPS(my favorite), ELEMENTS, KILLIN FIELDS, BIG DOGS, BREAK UPS 2 MAKE UPS and JUDGEMENT DAY."
