  1. 9.0 |   No Ripcord

    A bittersweet victory. A successful last grasp. A beautiful, tragic goodbye of a banger
    Read Review

  2. 9.0 |   Tiny Mix Tapes

    The best Wu-affiliated album since that first round of solo joints; it’s as good as it could/should be considering the legend and personnel involved, and that’s a steep compliment

  3. 9.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    ...quite simply one of the best rap records released this decade: literate, funny, dark, evocative and meaningful all at once

  4. 8.8 |   Pitchfork

    Between the hype, the anticipation and the attachment of a legendary album's legacy, anything less than a classic would have proven to be a major disappointment. Few albums have gone through this much turmoil and delay in the planning stages yet turned out so cohesive and tight.

  5. 8.0 |   The List

    An album just about fit to hold up the lauded title.

  6. 8.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Pt. II approximates the feel of the original, with Dr. Dre, RZA and the late J Dilla working up a slicker version of the first volume's eerie production

  7. 8.0 |   Mojo

    Print edition only

  8. 8.0 |   Pop Matters

    Musically and lyrically, Raekwon has topped himself, removing the stigma of Immobilarity and The Lex Diamonds Story to drop what may be the hip-hop record of the year

  9. 7.0 |   Spin

    While the songs may lack the original’s wild-eyed narrative, they still contain some of his most rewind-worthy bars in years

  10. 6.0 |   Blurt

    ...even the Rolling Stones’ new albums are more adventurous than this
