i didn't like this album as much as the first one. it still had some good tracks. i'll admit though that i hit the skip button more than i should whenever i listen to it. still, some of the RZA's stuff on here is classic!

I'm still getting used to this album. Despite what you may hear, its not anywhere near 6 Feet Deep. Lots of knowledge being dropped, but its not as banging as most Wu classics. Still a great cd. Da Bomb and Pit of Snakes are awesome songs and the best two on the cd.

hell yeah i love that album, not an absolute classic, but i real good one...the sounbd is raw and the rhymes all skilled...

Lesbian Nun

Amazing album...as good as they come...

i personally like the absence of Rza on Nightmare in A-minor to this album...

1. 6 feet deep
2. Nightmare in A-minor
3. Pick, sickle n' shovel
4. Gravediggaz Demos
5. Tricky vs. Gravediggaz
6. 6 feet under

that's how i see their discography...

I can't decide between this and 6 Feetdeep

This was alot cleaner
i.e Wu-tang Forever

6 FeetDeep
i.e Enter The Wu-Tang 36 Chambers

definite Wu-Fam classic

Unexplained is crazy production by Poetic
one of his best tracks

Without a doubt one of my favorite albums of all time. Period. Produced by RZA and the Wu-Elements, 'diggaz second album had a different sound than the first. I think that this one sounded more cohesive than the first. Sure, the ridicously dope horrorcore theme was dichted but they replaced with something even more frightening, reality. Psychological lyrics instead of raw horror. Genuis! The painted a picture on this album that was sometimes nervous, even paranoid but so damn real. This is what hiphop artists need to do when they drop another album, take it to another level, goddamned! It's a classic! Yes the c-word some, you herbs. Let me spell it for you C-L-A-S-S-I-C.

http://www2.arnes.si/guest/ljzss46/graveyard/cover3.jpg

Too many gems to choose from, but the ones that stuck the most to me were Dangerous minds, They never come back, The night the eart cried & What's going on. And offcourse, Twelve Jewels the track that had/have some of us still grinding for that "Cure" album. But its Dangerous Minds whom have me picking my copy and blaze it (which I do really, really often)

The production is supberb but its the lyrical content which takes it to there. For those who are too young (it's okay, we all been there) or those just slept on it (you fucks), exhibit A

As nuclear dropped out of the sky, killin birds and to fear
For hydroperoxide and sodium oxide, deep down outta basements
Fish turned lopside and upside down from atomic facelifts
Through the blackness I saw John the Baptist, on the atlas
Holdin the masters to my Psalm under his arm
But long before I even wrote 'em, 23 elders each wrote me a Psalm
And placed them within my motor neurons
It contained the aproximate date of the Apocalypse
Deposited in scripts of the 20th century prophets
The clock ticks, tick, tick, tick
Upon the land borders, I count down the manslaughters
Military camcorders under ocean waters
Red October causin fish to grow arms, legs, tits, and double heads
Mutating the eggs as the radiation spreads over the water beds
I watch Mother Nature as she bled
Grym, was placed in skin casing to being lacing hyms through the basement
Won't be no escapin from the South to the North
Where you run ten paces and your face is fallin off
- Grymreaper - Repentance Day -

Exhibit B? Well, go buy/play this fucking album and stop sleeping on it!!! Haha.. am not kidding!

RZA at his lyrical prime right here. There a lot of tracks that make you go "WOW!" and then some that have lazy production. Great album though prolly 7.5 or 8 out of 10.

No matter how many times I try tolisten to this it still sucks. This has to be one of the worst albums ever made. It's absolute shit. I can't believe they went from 6 feet deep to this. I give it a 1/10 they only get a one cause the cover is cool looking. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS!

this is one of my fav albums of all time...its only recently grew on me like that tho, i used to only listen to it for the sick Rza verses...

then i started just lettin it play n i realized that the production on this album is fuckin AMAZINGGGGGGGGGGGGGG..

for me this has gotta be 10/10...i dono what a 10 is if this album isnt..

beats are amazing (Rza, True Master, 4th, Poetic kills)..Rza is in my fav Rza personality (12 Jewelz!!!!!)...and i didnt realize how insnae Poetic n Frukwan were until givin this shit a good listen....

listenin to this shit wen im mad high i can feel my fuckin brain tingle on some of these songs....Never Gonna Come Back is fuckin amazing,,,,Poetic verse reminds me of a futuristic comic book or somethin..

11-29-2006, 09:24 PM
This shit sucks ass, sorry but for some reason the trend on this album is that the beats dont mesh with the flows. Only two tracks sound complete Unexplained and The Night The Earth Cried. While the lyrics are well written the emcees dont really mesh with the beats like they should on most of the tracks. Alot of it sounds like it was half assed and shoulda been redone once or twice. Take Fairytalez for instance, great beat but what the fuck is with that flow on the first verse? This type of crap is repeated throughout most of the album.

Ive listened through the whole album about 3 times. Please dont ask me to punish myself with more. Its not like the flows and beats will go together better with further listens (unless maybe im stoned as fuck one day)

It sounds like they recorded the vocals on another beat and put it on these.

What?! Wow... Wu fans that don't like this?

This album is a personal classic of mine. Start to finish.

I was actually really impressed at the way this was such a far cry from '6 Feet Deep'. It's like it made both albums shine brighter for me. I reckon I woulda been bored with the whole style of the previous album in hindsight.

10/10, no worries.

'The Night The Earth Cried' has to be one of my favourite tracks/clips too.

this is the singular most "listen till it grows on you" album within the Wu-fam. A stark contrast to the first gravediggaz album, both are absolute classics to me. Elimination Process is one of the greatest Hip hop tracks of all fuckin time

this album is good but it wouldv'e been better if RZA and Prince Paul would have got more involved in it, RZA was only on half the album and Prince Paul only produced 2-3 tracks. i guess RZA was busy doing tours for Wu-Tang Forever at the time since it was 1997

You're not a true Wu fan if you can't get with this album, period. Similar to Wu-Tang Forever (but to a lesser extent in my opinion, Forever really was that damn incredible), this album is still too advanced in today's music environment (let alone when it was recorded 10 years ago).

I got this album in '98. I loved it. It really influenced my writing.

Yeah this is a pretty impressive piece of work I would say. Production is spotty to me in some areas, but excellent in others.

Definitely dope album. I gotta say though i've always liked 6 Feet Deep more, just cause of a couple problems I got with this album...

For one, I loved the crazy abstract/horrorcore aspect of the first Diggaz album so I was kinda disappointed to see that go away on this. Secondly, not alot of Rza at all. He was so ill on 6 Feet Deep with the Rza-rectah style so would've liked to see him more on this. Also the production I don't think is as tight as 6 Feet Deep. And I was reeeally disappointed at not having Prince Paul really produce anything (I think he did the outro or somethin I forget).

Still, criticisms aside, Fruk and Poetic definitely hold it down and some great lyrics throughout this album. 8.5/10 for me.

Both are great albums, but the Pick...shovel shit was off the chain.the production on that album was truely classic.
I always liked "Rzarector" better than "Bobby Digital" lyrically anyway.

This is a 9/10 for me. That's enough in my book to be considered classic. It's must hear material when I introduce ppl to Gravediggaz.

I think 6 Feet Deep is waaay better than that Album... It's not the raw hardcore GraveDiggaz from Niggamortis...

This is truly a classic album

I copped it over 6 feet deep about a month ago because I've played that more so I thought I'd get more out of owning this cd

Dangerous Mindz, Unexplained, 12 Jewelz are probably my favorite cuts from it, all incredible

One of my all time favorite. Great lyrics, incredible beats, this album is a classic. 97 was a great year for the wu, no doubt. Rza was on fire ! Fuck Bobby Digital !
My favorite tracks :
Da bomb
Dangerous minds
Fairytalez (The beat is crazy and the lyrics r deep)
Pit of the snakes
The night the earth cried
Hidden Emotions
