    I dunno if I'd say it is a undisputed classic, but its definatly an amazing album and is one of my all time favourites. My second favourite Nas album as well. I just rebought this CD again today because some fuck stole mine when I bought it after it dropped. I had it burned, but I always gotta have the real deal. I consider it near classic cuz I can still listen to it and love it after whats been almost a year. The hardcore street beats are amazing and his deep rhymes are dope as expected. Catchy hooks are few and far between here, granted, with most of the songs crafted as if they were freestyle raps. It may be a bit pretentious, but this album sounds exactly what an album I'd want to create would be like. Old school hip hop throwbacks, classic rock/blues samples, Rakim bio, and a range of moods and topics. No commercial bullshit. Double albums are also very hard to make successfully, so you gotta give him credit as well. What I cant understand is how this album recieved "criticism and mixed reviews". I wish more new age rap albums sounded like this. IMO its a near classic Eastcoast gem. Does anyone else feel similar about this album, or was it a disapointment or a weak album to others?

    Its far from classic. Not even as a 1 disc of the best songs, would it be a classic. I like alot of joints, but c'mon...classic? FAR FROM IT

    I like about 5 or 6 songs total.

    Quite a drop from even something like "Stillmatic," where I think I skipped one song.

    ^ Classic is used to much.

    An album can be good... hell, an album can be GREAT and still not be a classic.

    It had too much filler to be a classic. If it was scaled down to a single CD and removed some of the repetivness, it would have been.

    Classics - you let the cd just ride.

    Naw SD aint classic and this is coming from a huge nas fan. There are some very good tracks like Just A Moment but there are too many filler songs. overall its just not as good as his other shit. I rank it as his second worst album besides Nastradamus. But I mean even saying that its a solid album that would be any other rappers best.
