personal classic, used to have this on the headphones with the hoody on grindin all through 9th and 10th grade along with Wu forever. And this is the album cover. dude's probably thinking of Dirty Weaponry which had 2 covers, the photo one and the anime-ish artwork cover. I used to have the vinyl with that cover. 4th hooked this album up as far as the thematic, the skits, the production is insane and there are ill lyrics throughout this album. Not one bad track on it.

In 97 Wu Tang Clan was on top of the hip hop world. Everyone in hip hop knew that this group was the best out and they couldn't be fucked with. A sub group named Killarmy, was sort of the same way. They exhibited a creative style, albeit controversial. With their first album, Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars, they solidified that the Wu family runs deep.

Dress to Kill-4/5-This is a good intro the CD. I love the chorus, and the beat is very solid, which is something we've come to expect from 4th Disciple.

Clash of the Titans-5/5-This is a great track. Great beat from 4th. This beat seems to pick up, then quiet down, then pick up again. It's done greatly. Good verses, nothing average with them

Burning Season-5/5-This is one of my favorite tracks ever. Everything is so great with this song. The beat, one of 4th's best. And the chorus, which is one of the most catchiest choruses i've heard. Killa Sin is the assassin this time around, and delivers 2 very good verses. Only thing is, everyone should have had a verse on this song. Wish it would have been 10 minutes long.

Blood For Blood-4/5-This song is very well done. I love the girl sample in the beginning, plus Dom Pachino and Shogun Assassin have good verses. Nothing weak about this song or the MC's in it.

Seems it Never Fails-3/5-Only problem I have with this album is this song. Beat is lackluster. I am usually a huge, huge fan of piano loops, but this doesn't do it. So-so song but fortunately this is the only flaw with this album.

Universal Soldiers-3/5-When I saw that this song was produced by 4th I was think this is gonna be classic, and it does start out great. The sample is cool, and the beat sounds like it's gonna be dope. But the beat is so annoying. Don't like this beat from 4th.

Love, Hell, or Right-NA-It's a skit. I love the little horn beat going on and it's just them speaking on I think religion. Leads into the next track very well.

Wake Up-5/5-Now we are back to banging tracks. RZA got it right with this one. Dope beat and awesome, awesome verses by everyone. One of the best tracks. Hell Razah steals it though. He's a dope MC.

Fair, Love, & War-5/5-A lot less hard hitting beat, but is done very well. Very solid job and they all have good verses going well with the beat. Great song, proving these guys are good MC's.

Wu-Renegades-5/5-This is probably the best Killarmy song and probably one of the best beats i've ever heard. It's simple, this beat is absolute perfect. The complex piano loop, the perfectly done bassline, perfect sample, and the great verses. All that can be said is the song is incredible.

Full Moon-5/5-Another great beat. This one is more dark, cold, and grimy. Very, very well done with 9th Prince having the best verse on this song. Good song tough to skip.

Under Siege-4/5-This beat is a little off kilter. It takes time to like it but I appreciate it now. It's what 4th does best. Creating off key sounding beats that sound incredible. Shogun Assassin has the best verse.

Shelter-5/5-I love this beat it's one of my favorite ones from 4th. Hated it at first but it's great. Love the chorus.

Camouflage Ninjas-5/5-Oh boy. This is just fucking hard hitting. The beat is just BAM it's in your fucking face. Off key piano. This is just a captivating beat. PR has the best verse on this. But the MVP on this song is 4th Disciple. Incredible beat.

Swinging Swords-5/5-As if it couldn't get any better this beat is almost as great. Love the sample and the beat. Beat is so fucking sick. 9th has the best verse. Man 3 classic songs in a row.

War Face-5/5-I love this beat. It sounds different than the usual RZA, but I love the beat. Great chorus. Good verses.

5 Stars-5/5-I think this is a great way to go out. With a lot less hard hitting beat, and going out sort of quietely. Good beat by 4th and I think Masta Killa is the best on it. He sounda little lazy, but rides beat very nicely.

To conclude, this is probably one of my favorite albums. I hate the people who hate on the MC's of this group. They are all good to me. I understand the Islord haters, his style is a lot different, but in the end he has a lot of talent. A lot of these MC's have had disappointing solo careers. Only Dom Pachino and 9th Prince have released anything good. Another group album is highly unlikely but thanks for this album. I think it's a classic.

this is the greatest wu fam album of all time, and yes there was 2 COVERS for this album as well, the second cover is the ANIME on the inside cover of the album with all those dudes dressed in camoflauge, It was the cover for the advanced promo version, the same anime cover was also suppose to be the cover for a population clique single.

This album is straight fire. The production is off the hook by 4th, he puts out dope beats on this album for sure. There isn't one beat I didn't like on the album.

The lyrics are fire, I think Killarmy spits theyre best lyrics on this album for sure. No weak tracks on the album

The real shit right here on this album!

I said it is a classic
But are we biased because we r fans

It probably comes down to preference
But I know people that doesn't like wu say
That their albums r not classics

How many people have to like an album 4 it to b a classic


Do you call Kayne's first album a classic
Many people do but I don't is it still a classic

I gotta side with everybody that said it. I love this album. It's my favorite Killarmy album period. The only one that comes close is Fear, Love and War. Certain albums have a certain feel to it that no words can describe. This is definately one of them for me.

10/10

Every track was dope, but certain tracks just drive you cashew nuts.

Dress To Kill

Seems It Never Fails

Wake Up was just STOOPID nice.

Swingin' Swords.....YO....I just grin every time I hear it...oh and I definately sing along.

The whole album should be played at full blast though.

10-09-2006, 10:50 PM
to me this is a classic..

has one of the best openings to an album i've ever heard..that whole little thing with "we are at war with an enemy we can't see" and then that fuckin ILLLLLL guitar sound starts comin in....it just sets you up for this whole album

the song Full Moon gives me goosebumps every time i hear it...that track is incredible....4th fuckin slaughtered that beat and it opens up with the wind blowin n stuff....this is just classic material.

Fair, Love and War is also ridiculous...i just love this damn album

Beautifully crafted album, personal classic. I listen to it about every other day. So many albums today sound like mixtapes but this is a bonafide album from begining to end.

FLZA
10-10-2006, 01:33 PM
Definitely a classic. It might sound funny, but Love, Hell or Right is one of the sickest tracks. It's subtle, but one of the best skits I've ever heard. It's the little things that make a great album a classic.

I've been looking for this album for what seems like forever here in Canada. I finnaly saw it at zulu records in some guy's personal album collection. I asked him if I could buy it off of him and he agreed for 15 bucks. He explained to me what a sensational album it was and I rushed outside to pop it in my ride and had an orgasm. Without a doubt it was the best 15 bucks I've ever spent. I've never been so impressed in terms of production. This album is so well crafted that I feel its impossible to listen to it in pieces. On top of that every time you put this one in your player you know you're going to hit that repeat button because every beat and every verse here are fire.

It's hard to pick a favorite song here, but the ones I banged the hardest to were Full Moon, Camouflage Ninjas, Clash of the Titans, Wu Renegades, Burning Season and Fiar Love and War.

10/10 and most def in my top 5 hip hop albums of all time.

Personally i actually prefer their other 2 albums but i still love this. As with the other 2 fuckin brilliant production, which is probably the best points about the killarmy albums, not to take anything away from the group Killa Sin is sick as is Dom Pachino, 9th Prince gets on my fuckin nerves he doesnt ride with any of the beats properly

A Hollow Dartz Review *Opens Curtain*

1.Dress To Kill
Very dope beat by 4th Disciple, Killa Sin brings that heat my first thought was classic, but 9th Prince follows up nasty, his flow is kinda off on here which killed the momentum on here, it wasn't really long though. Shogun finishes it off good nothing too special about his verse. The beat is really crazy on here though great opening track. 4.5/5
2.Clash of the Titans
Crazy beat and Shogun starts it off great spitting raw. 9th Prince follows up kinda off, his flow needs work on this whole album, but Dom Pachino picks up the slack, but Streetlife steals the show on here "US currency got me itching my palms" you got damn right! Beretta 9 ends it off nice flowing with the beat. 5/5
3.Burning Season
The First Solo track on a Killarmy album. Beat is very dope. Killa Sin takes this one in a story about a nigga tryna rob another nigga lol. Killa Sin shows us his lyrical skills on the mic. Great storytelling though. Good thing 9th was only on the hook. 5/5
4.Blood For Blood
The beat is very hot on here. I kinda don't like how Dom Pachino starts his verse off on here sounds like he's flow experimenting, Shogun comes correct, 9th Prince has a dope verse on this one I may add & Beretta 9 ends it off great on some militant shit. 4.5/5
5.Seems It Never Fails
This track I must say this is weak. 9th Prince flow is horrible on this shit, I wasn't even feeling the beat too much pretty average. Islord is just spitting, sounds like a freestyle or something. 3/5

6.Universal Soldiers
Beat Kinda lags on this track, it's still good though, great verses delivered by all members 9th Prince is hype on this track for god knows what reason, the beat is calm he should be too imo. Flow is off too. 4/5
7.Love, Hell, or Right
8.Wake Up
Straight Classic right here. This is one of the only times I fucks with 9th Prince flow he straight rips this one, but I have to give this to Hell Razah & Prodigal Sunn they just going off Hell Razah is spitting mad crazy. Killa Sin brings his crazy delivery to the table also. Prodigal Sunn ends the track nice too, really feeling this shit. Rza delivers a crazy beat and they use it wisely. 5/5
9.Fear, Love, & War
Not the type of track I would expect to Follow up after "Wake Up" but it's all good. Killa Sin delivers a real nice track on here, and everything else just flows nicely. Beat is calm so nothing else to say....4.5/5
10.Wu-Renegades
This is the first track I heard from this group and I got hooked. Very dope beat and all the verses on here are crazy. Beretta 9 is flowing fast as shit on here but still delivers that heat, Dom Pachino is just spitting heat. Killa Sin flows crazy on here and 9th Prince does not fail. 5/5
11.Full Moon
9th Prince starts this shit off. Flow is kinda on and off on this track but it is acceptable, then Killa comes in and smashes it. Beat is VERY good, something to ride out to....5/5
12.Under Siege
I'm like one of the only ones who loved this track on first listen. Shogun brings heat with the opening line, and Dom Pachino just brings the heat. Beretta 9 is the icing on the cake, 4th delivers a great beat. 5/5
13.Shelter
A lil Preview of the tag team of Beretta 9 & Shogun the beat is crazy on here and they just spitting real shit about life period. 5/5
14.Camouflage Ninjas
This song kinda drags on to me, it is dope though, It had to grow on me. After a few listens I must say this is a dope track. Everyone does there thing, you know 9th Prince is very hype on this one...... 4.5/5
15.Swinging Swords
LOL this is where I must say I fucks with 9th's flow on the album, I love this line "I be splitting shit like moses, then celebrate with gunz and roses". Dom Pachino follows up with a great verse the Killa Sin........just finishes it off crazy I love this line "You Either sit down, shut the fuck up, or catch an uppercut" LOL crazy shit. Beat is crazy. 5/5
16.War Face
This is another track I think kinda lags on this album. It's definitely not wack great verses delivered by the Killarmy. 4/5
17. 5 Stars
9th Prince flow is off on here but the beat is so live so it really doesn't matter. Beretta 9 has a great verse on here and flows very well on here,Shogun just adds on to the greatness of the track, Dom Pachino is ripping it to, BUT Masta Killa shows and proves why he is a Wu-General. He just shits on everyone. The hook is hot too, it gets me hyper when i'm in my chamber zoning out. Nice Outro to a great Debut album.... 5/5

Beats - 5/5
Lyrics 4.5/5
Overall 4.5/5

Nice cd equipped with beats that are crazy. But The flows on this cd are off. Killa Sin & Dom Pachino are the only ones who seem to have developed a flow for themselves, while the other members seem to find spots. 9th Prince sounds ehhh on this album, like wtf?? They don't all seem in sync, it's like they just made the group and the album. The Lyrics are on point somewhat but you can tell who needs work and who doesn't. Killa Sin has best performance on album. The beats are classic though, some of the best production I've ever heard on an album. 4.5/5 BEST ALBUM BEAT WISE ***Certified Wu-Classic***

4th stole the show on this album, every beat is flawless to me.


Only problem I had with this album was 9th Prince ruining almost everything he was on lol

You clearly have a speech impediment, why would you try to rap faster than you can speak?! lol

He got better with every album (by calming the fuck down) and was dope by Fear Love and War but christ he was bad on here lol

Literally hyperventilating on every verse. His flow in 97' is the exact same flow as Holocaust in 2010.


Like Hollow said, Dom Pachino and Killa Sin pretty much stole the show. Half the reason I like this album more than their other two is because Sin was on most of the songs. I love Beretta 9's verses and Islord's delivery is ill to me, even if he doesn't rhyme half the time. Too bad he didn't have more verses on this one. Shogun does his thing

Overall, it's not the quality of the verses or the way the beats are crafted, it's that overall atmosphere that puts me right back in 97' every time I listen to it. And that's half of what defines a classic album for me

9/10 (i'd say 10 but 9th prince kinda shit the bed lol)

Wu-Classic!

Definately a classic. It got all the elements it takes to be called a classic. Bangin and not over-produced beats, raw rhymes that actually make sense, hungry spitters with remarkable timing, man.

I got the still sealed cassette for sale. Anyone that's interested drop me a note.
