    Sound quality wise wasn't an issue for me as I bought the solo LP's on CD.
    BAN!

    Hehe, as I've always said many times before, any LP post 1990 I buy on CD over Vinyl (Vinyl when no CD is available), all mainly due to space consraints, and there being far too many decent 12"s vying for the same space, could be worse though I could go Digital.

Plus the sound quality on the vinyl is (deliberately?) bad. it always felt like a bunch of really good tracks, a few disappointing but not terrible ones, and not a cohesive album. Whereas I didn't expect ODB to be able to drop a dope album. As Dise said, each to his own, but 'Return...' is an established classic in a way Tical most certainly isn't. Weird, really, because it's even more messy.
    By way of contrast, the Raekwon is really cohesive and I think took people by surprise.
    Yep...also the 1st solo LP and RZA lost all the original beats in a flood or something os that could be partly responsible for the sound (I bought it on cassette). Anticipation was massive for the LP and as you said the strong tracks are great. Return is messy and raw but in a great way, Tical seems unfinished / rushed

    I voted Wu-Tang. Midnight Marauders is a nice album full of dope tracks, but too monotonous and not varied enough for me to call it a classic in the same way as Enter The Wu. 20 years later and I still couldn't tell you which beat was which on MM. Easy pick for me.

    A real tough decision for me would have been Enter The Wu Vs. The Low End Theory, which was the Tribe masterpiece IMHO.

    I'm such a huge Tribe fan and loyalist that at the time, Midnight Marauders was more of what I wanted to hear. It got more burn from me than Wu-Tang did. But ultimately, Enter the 36th Chambers is so much more of an important album. The Wu-Tang came in and innovated in a way that few have been able to since. These both dropped 1 day before my 13th Birthday..
