Loads of "best album" comparisons, but I've got an idea of making a running series of "Best produced" albums during the "golden era". Try to ignore the MC skills and think just of the beats. There's no formula for the ones chosen to battle, just first two that popped into my head.

Yeah some have different production styles, but they're comparable, vote which style you dig more. Hoping to go through these preliminaries, to the quarter finals, to the semis, to the final and get WuCorps "best produced album".

So, this is round 1, couple classiks.

You cant 'ignore' the MCing because a good producer knows how to shape the song style to the MC. Thats why its called producing. You cant have one without the other really, it doesnt make sense. No one would prefer to hear the instumentals of Infamous over the real thing, and no one would prefer to hear the accapella over the real thing.

Theres a big difference between beatmakers (Premier) and producers (RZA).

The Infamous was heavy, but Tical was even heavier as far as production...

Tical was an album, whereas Infamous (to me) was a collection of songs, i know thats what an album is, but Tical had more fluidity in my opinion...

Hmm..that's pretty hard.
Both albums had their share of forgettable beats.
Tical is put together better, Infamous feels mixtape-ish (maybe because of the skits).
They have similar vibes to em.
I'll have to say Infamous.

The Infamous easily, i didn't even have to think about this shit.

Tical = the most overrated Wu album of all time. (but yes i understand why Wu fans love it)

I seriosly hope Deltron 3030 is on your list of best produced albums, Dan the Automator killed that shit

tical gets the slight nod. not an easy choice. good matchup here.

tical had some really layered off the wall production with all sorts of chopped sounds mixed in together while infamous was mostly standard looping(still sick though). they're equally dope but tical gets the edge for creativity.

Hey, hey, hey, hey! Stop right there!

Don't ever... EVER... say something like that again. True that Premo got lazy and now produces same shit for whoever, but he was first producer that was known for adapting every beat sound to particular MC.

I'd like to believe you're a real hip-hop head, but such shit makes you sound foolish.

Yeah, otherwise I voted for "The Infamous", Havoc still lives on strength of that album (and to a lesser degree "Hell on Earth").

OK I might of been a little harsh in terms of his earlier days. But for me, IMO, he was always a boom bap producer, he wasnt into sahping full albums with a certain atmosphere, he was interested in making hard knocking beats over and over again.

Which is dope.

But its not RZA in the 90's.


But then again, I dont think ANY producer has accomplished what RZA did artistically. Apart from Prince Paul with De La.

I agree really, but I meant just focus on da beats. Dont be like "Meths lyrics were doper".

Tis a good point man, agree with ya, vote whatever producer does that then? Im not here to tell niggas how to vote or da criteria, just straight production vs production, Survival of the fittest.

And yeah I vote Infamous, two hip-hop all time classic beats and a REEEAAALLLLY strong line up after that, gotta give it the nod.

I just enjoy the beats on the Infamous more. Beats like "Survival of the Fittest" "Eye for an Eye" "Give up the Goods" and "SHOOK Ones pt2" just hit harder than anything on Tical. You can argue that Tical is more cohesive sounding whatever but I just the beats from the Infamous just knock way harder.

Out of the classic Wu Albums (36 chambers to Forever) I think Tical has the weakest production.

Infamous uses Tical's coffee mug with his daughters pictures on it to crush up crack cocaine rocks..
