    I'd probably say Liquid Swords mainly because if you ever had any aspirations (as an artist) of making a raw and gritty yet lyrical album, You probably had to listen to liquid Swords first.

    Plus it's got some of my favourite beats on the album

    - Swordsman

    - B.I.B.L.E. (not a GZA song but it's on the album >_<)

    But on the flip, Servants In Heaven, Kings In Hell isn't exactly a weak album. It's arguably Vinnie's most lyrical since Violent By Design (Tracks like Razorblade Salvation and Heavy Metal Kings) and has one of the best feature verses on an album that year with "Uncommon Valor" featuring R.A. - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7r0KpWMNxnM

    And Stoupe is just as sick with tracks like "Shadow Business" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Swq9cVaegSs

    and "Black Winter Day" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=564d3daeP-0

    I think Liquid Swords is better on production and lyrics but if anything, Servants In Heaven, Kings In Hell is kinda like an underground alternative to the album, So I respect both highly.

    Edit - Violent By Design, Visions Of Gandhi and A History Of Violence aren't even reaally comparable stylistically to Liquid Swords, The closest funnily enough is either Servants In Heaven or Legacy of Blood.

    that isn't JMT's best album...hit up Violent By design, Visions of Ghandi or History of violence
