    Northstar is really a new sound for a Wu affiliated album. A West Coast duet of Christ Bearer & Meko with a more gangsta style from Long Beach, CA. I think RZA made a good choise with these two. Released in 2004 it was definitley a new sound for the Wu, but still has the crazy lyrics on top of wild beats. My favorite songs from the album were Crazy & Ballin'. I would give this album a 4 out of 5 but thats my opinion, thats why I chose to do this review, so I could here yours. I know many won't approve of my giving this album a 4 out of 5, because Wu has always been a more East Coast assosiated crew, but in my opinion there aint nuttin wrong wit tryin somethin new, and this is definetly new. So weather East Coast, or West Coast the Wu is truely spreading with artists now on both sides of the U.S.

    I don't give a god damn, on the shows you did
    How many rhymes you got, or who knows you kid?

    i hated this album at first but it grew on me. some very funky tracks, like so so serious. i don't bump it on the regular but it's a solid effort and probably the most unique sound in the wu camp right now. RZA gives us some of his most electronic beats ever which is disappointing but some of them are good. the MCs have a sense of humor too, "NORTH STAR AND THE R Z A, RED RUM RED RUM RED RUM RUN AWAY!!"

    so i give it like a 7/10

    This was better than the slew of Wu albums that came out at the end of 2003. A few weak tracks, but a very solid effort. 3.5/5

    Average album (maybe 6,5/10), but there're two just incredibly ill tracks: "Luv Allah" & "Nuttin'". Beats of this two are amazing Christbearer is a really good MC
