In my years of studying RZA and the first batch of classics I found that RZA never went for 18 or whatever non stop banging tracks on an album. Instead he went for songs that made sense. For example, a song like 'Wisdom Body' Now that song is a good song, but it's not Wu-Gambinos, or Rainy Dayz or Ice Cream, far from it. And if you were to hear it today for the first time you'd like it, but you wouldnt be blown away by it. BUT! on the album you couldnt think of it not being there.... Because that song is what I call a functional song. It plays a part in the overall total. And thats how these classics were made. With lots of functional pieces of interludes, skits, intros, outros and headliner songs.
This is what made us fans experience the album. We didnt just hear the album or just listened to it. We experienced it. And thats what I want to accomplish with this album. And therefore playing snippets here and there wont work because all the songs only make complete sense once put together in the perfect order which allows the songs, skits, movie samples and such to make a cohesive Wu-Tang exprrience.
