The original version, 'God's Son', is better, and this having clean acapellas over 9th Wonder's beats doesn't help (creates a few gaps in songs), but this is still a good remix album and works better than 9th Wonder's other major remix album from around the same time 'Black Is Back'. The only thing certainly better on this to the original is 'Thugz Mansion' which I think improves on the original - it gives it an actual beat. Elsewhere, the original 'Made You Look' is a great alternative with the 'Broken Wing Bird' sample working greatly. Other than that, all the originals are probably better, but most add something different like 'Hey Nas' which makes the song sound much rawer than its original. The biggest negative difference to the originals as far as enjoyment goes for me is 'Get Down' that doesn't feature a chorus and just lets the beat roll which lets the track down and 'Book of Rhymes' that has a boring beat. Like much of this remix album, with the one track from Stillmatic, 'Ether', 9th Wonder brings down the intensity of the song and makes it a touch more soulful. It you like the underrated God's Son, this is well worth checking out.
