I think knowing an album's creative process makes the music better. In fact, all the albums where it was just a dude recording songs blow. Cuban Linx had the tape recorders, and waiting on these royalties taking too long, alias', ghost and rae penning the album in Miami, etc. Rza usually had pretty interesting processes for each album.

Then there's the beatles sgt. peppers, thriller, pet sounds and all that shit. Anything else?
