USA Today review[edit]

Transcription using Google News Advanced News Archive Search. USA Today (Jones, Steve. 4.D. November 9, 1999) review of Immobilarity (1999):

RAP: Raekwon, Immobilarity ( * * * 1/2) While most artists fret over the dreaded sophomore jinx, few carry a burden like Raekwon's in following his remarkable, groundbreaking debut from 1995, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx. But the Wu-Tang Clan's Chef not only shrugs off the pressure, he ladles up another sonic delight. He shows off his versatility and virtuosity on tracks such as the lyrically acrobatic 100 Rounds, the hard-driving revenge tale Yayo and the blazing Power. And while fellow Clan members Masta Killah and Method Man drop in for cameos, Raekwon ventures away from the Wu-Tang safety net of The RZA's production and tries on a number of new beat masters for size. That effort not only freshens his sound; it also pushes him to elevate his game.

Chicago Sun-Times review[edit]

Transcription using Google News Advanced News Archive Search. Chicago Sun-Times (Kyles, Kyra. 13. January 9, 2000) review of Immobilarity (1999):

Not only is the term "immobilarity" pure nonsense, but this hodgepodge album has no real rhyme nor reason, with disparate references to mob action and Shaolin lore. It's a travesty to hear the Wu Tang warrior who once served up dishes such as "Ice Cream," "Criminology" and the spine-tingling "Glaciers of Ice" waste wondrous lyrics over these tacky beats. The RZA's razor-sharp influences are sorely missed on "Yae Yo," "Casablanca" and "Jury." Raekwon's new producers never measure up to the exotic instrumental strains that dominated his first solo project. The monotonous melodies of "Immobilarity" sound like samples from the "Goodfellas" soundtrack. The disc's best cuts go directly against the Wu Tang grain of subtle samples and odd instrumentals. "Raw," the surprisingly pop-sounding "Pop S- - - and "Forecast" merit praise, despite their club sound.
