This excellent album is often referred to as Gang Starr's best, although it's still challenged today by "Hard To Earn" and "Moment Of Truth", which are also excellent albums as well. Guru and Premo continued to get better on the mic and behind the boards, respectively, and this album showcases that SO well. Memorable songs include "Take It Personal", "I'm The Man" (featuring a show stealing verse by Jeru The Damaja), and "Soliloquy of Chaos". And of course it still holds up today. 5 stars.
