Rating it 3.5 mostly on the strength of the amazing instrumentals. Stoupe deserves much more credit than he gets. Still, over an hour of Vinnie Paz is more Vinnie Paz than I can handle. Especially in this stage of his career.
Legacy of Blood is violent and controversial by nature, and I highly recommend to listen to it when you're full of anger like Vinnie Paz's flow or right after a christian parade singing latin poems near your house while you were sleeping. The record samples a lot of classic music giving an epic sound to the whole thing. Even if the large variety of guests MC's diversifies this album (The track featuring GZA is dope, Killah Priest is at his top on his contribution), the rapper's flow gets sometimes monotonous and the album is slightly too long. Good renegade shit.
