for an album that's as colorfully flavored as the panoply of wallos on the cover, the piece is simplistic...


It's a good look to feature an article in recognition of this CLASSIC album but the piece manages to underrate Ghost's classic by notching it below Tical, etc and failing to highlight the unprecedented lyrical displays Ironman had.... The many displays of fast-paced flows spitting shit like "new reveal this painkill rap/ fuck Benadryl/ a violin of knowledge, god sounded ill" was (and still is) mindblowing and mostly unlike anything else in the Wu catalogue with the exception of select tracks and of course Supreme Clientele



it's also a unique chamber for Rza AND the Wu debut of True Master who would go on to outdo Rza on a bunch of solos (The Pillage, Judgment Day, Uncontrolled Substance)



I've never saw Ironman as inferior in any way to OB4CL or Supreme.... it's at least as good as either one
