The Saga Continues sees the group at their most uninhibited in years.

75
Northern Transmissions
For their seventh album the group still carries the amazing, obtuse production style that’s made them feel unique and fun throughout the years. Occasionally though, the range of members on the record leave some songs feeling weaker or less exciting than others, and occasionally moving a little too generic.

HipHopDX

The Saga Continues is not the home run that Wu-Tang Clan fans have been waiting for, but to keep the baseball analogy, it’s an RBI double.

AllMusic

As a Wu-Tang album, The Saga Continues is good but not great, but it's a fine calling card for Mathematics, and makes the case that he should be given an album of his own more often.

GIGsoup
While it’s a strong album, with some really good standout tracks, it doesn’t really make that big an impact as a whole.

A.V. Club
It’s low-stakes stuff, but if you’re enough of a Wu fan to read this far, you’ll be happy the saga continues—at least for now.

Clash
At its best, 'The Saga Continues' captures some of the old Wu magic but unfortunately these moments are few and far between.
58
Consequence of Sound

While The Saga Continues engenders enough wistful reminiscences to satisfy the core, it provides shockingly little in the way of memorable moments.

The 405
We have seen countless Wu-Tang side projects, limp cash grabs, and forced collaborations, but if this is now meant to be the future... let's just stay in the past.

Slant Magazine

The Saga Continues is a patently unnecessary one. The majority of the Clan remain skilled wordsmiths, but they don't have much to say: a few rote references to the police brutality epidemic here, a toothless name-check to their aforementioned “pharma bro” patron there.

Pitchfork

Why listen to a bargain bin Wu joint when 36 Chambers is readily available? Outside of servicing the most diehard Wu-Tang fans, this album has little to no utility.

Producer Mathematics shines on this album, but it lacks the cohesion shown by other aging rap groups such as A Tribe Called Quest displayed in 2016. While a Wu-Tang album in name, the members are forced to get by on pure talent and don't bring their best bars and themes.

This is really a Mathematics LP, who also made Martin Shkreli's only copy of Once Upon A Time in Shaolin also, because no single song has all original members. That being said, its worlds better than A Better Tomorrow, & the OG Wu sound is in tact. Mathematics also made sure the Clan was spitting no corny bars; there was apparently a rigorous recording process.
