    Question Question about Almighty Album Cover?





    Finally bought the album.

    But I thought, the front cover had, the WU symbol? instead of Cross of David?

    you know how much it takes to use the wu-tang symbol on an album .... haha.. niggaz aint beat...

    it makes sense that it's the star of david,

    m-80 is jewish and the overseer of the album ... why not?

    i was disappointed at first too only cause i like to see the "W" represented everywhere possible, but then i learned what that symbol (star of david) actually means. look up what it means. pretty dope, and it fits better. of course the reference to M-80 is obvious, but it doesnt only mean "jewish". priest has used it and so have HRazah, shabazz........
    besides, this isnt realllllyyyyyyyyy a "wu" project. i always thought that was a stretch.

    I think his point was that the promo artwork had the Wu logo instead of the star of david - at some point they've removed it and swapped it over. It's interesting - if they're repping Wu (which they obviously are) why the logo removal?

    I remember seeing the promo artwork with the W too. That is interesting. I bought it, and hadn't even noticed.

    wonder why they took it off? my copy doesnt have that W on it either.
    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)

    What does, the Star of David have to do with M-80 being jewish? It's the Star of David, NOT the jewish Star.

    If you look closely at the label on top it says something about Wu Tang, can't make out what though

    It says, "The debut of the Wu-Tang affiliated supergroup"

    ^ Thanks. So they're still claiming Wu Tang, there could've been a problem with using the W logo, or they just wanted to use the star on the cover as some sort of symbolism or whatever instead of the W.

    yep i did...

    from the review:


    A quick note on the star, the interlocking triangles commonly known as the Star of David or Solomon Seal that appear on the front and back of the cd case….this symbol of interlaced triangles is actually a universal image---the same appears in the “heart chakra” chakra 4 in the Indian kundalini yoga system and it denotes “the center of spiritual awakening” where it is symbolic of “the spiritual condition of one who is, in life, enlightened.” This is implied because the upward-pointing triangle is of the spiritual eye while the downward-pointing triangle is of the claims of the “temporal world” aka everyday reality. I think it’s actually a perfect symbol for what they’re trying to bring with this album: some uplifting, deep spiritual shit to we who are stuck in an era of bullshit music. The same symbol was also popular in Classical times as a Pythagorean ‘tetraktys’ but I think I’ve made my point……..
