    Default 2009 Wu-Tang Corp Album Review thread

    New Album Review scores...Dopium, Chamber Music, OB4CL2, Wizard of Poetry added.

    Let me first clarify, I was only responsible for compiling the data the forum gave me in ILC polls. I DID NOT choose the order, you did.





    #41 - Mr. Xcitement

    Artist - U-God
    Year - 2005

    # of classic tracks = 1
    It's a Wrap

    I'm Talkin' to You
    Bump

    Other than the catchy back and forth patter of It's a Wrap, not much is gained from listening to this album with poor production and few guest appearances. Generally considered the worst Wu-Tang album ever made.

    #40 - Tical 0 : The Prequel

    Artist - Method Man
    Year - 2004

    # of Classic Tracks = 3
    What's Happenin'
    The Turn
    Afterparty

    The Motto
    The Show

    Perhaps not as bad as everybody thinks, this album is still an overall disappointment for fans of Method Man, who seemed to ignore Wu-Tang production in favor of a more popish direction. It didn't work.

    #39 - The Lex Diamond Story

    Artist - Raekwon
    Year - 2004

    Pitbull Fights
    Musketeers of Pig Alley
    Once upon a Time

    All Over Again
    Clientele Kid
    Pa-Blow Escablow

    The absolute low point of Raekwon's career, Lex Diamond features poor production, lazy lyrics, and a generally jagged flowing album unsuitable for multiple replays.

    #38 - The Wizard of Poetry in Emerald City

    # of Classic Tracks = 1
    Stapleton Sex

    Do Over
    Baby
    Stay
    Guest House

    Lonely
    Forever


    An experiment that strays far from the Wu-Tang sentiment, to the intricacies of relationships. It's a grown up album, but that doesn't make it a good album. Ghostface's shortest and poorest effort.

    # of Classic Tracks = 2
    Sound of the Slums
    A Lil' Story

    C.R.E.E.P.S.
    All I Want is Mine

    A largely overlooked release from Inspectah Deck, The Resident Patient features little guest appearances and little Wu-Tang production. The two stand out tracks are far and away better than the rest of the album.

    Barrel Brothers
    Walk Around
    Supa GFK
    Rec Room Therapy
    Paisley Darts
    Shakey Dog starring Lolita
    Killa Lipstick
    Slow Down

    Sadly one of the more ignored albums in ghost's collective, Big Doe is not nearly as bad as most Wu-heads on here seem to believe. More a less a collection of good tracks sorely lacking in the Wu-Tang spirit production wise.

    Casablanca
    Live From New York
    The Table
    Sneakers

    Yae Yo
    100 Rounds
    Real Life
    Jury
    Fuck Them


    Great lyrics cannot make up for the uninspired production on Raekwon's sophomore album that plays as well, sophomoric. The strongest tracks are the only ones that combine both facets of musical composition.

    Josephine
    You Know I'm No Good
    Alex (Stolen Script)
    Miguel Sanchez

    Ghost is Back
    Blue Armor
    Grew Up Hard

    Leftovers from the Fishscale album are thrown together and rushed out just 6 months after Fishscale's release. Still the album could be much worse. Great production and fine vocals make this a worthwhile listen, despite the junk title.

    Iron God Chamber
    Street Corner
    Ringin' Bells

    ENY House
    Nehanda and Cream
    Pass the Bone (remix)
    East MC's

    Just two years after his long awaited debut, Masta Killa drops Made in Brooklyn. Nobody could expect him to achieve what he did with his first album, and he doesn't, save the top 4 tracks, all brilliant compositions.

    You Can't Stop Me Now
    Money Don't Own Me
    Don't Be Afraid

    Long Time Coming
    Try Ya Ya Ya
    Drama
    Up Again


    One of the most divisive albums in the Wu collective in terms of fan appreciation, Digi Snacks features diverse production from the RZA. While it most certainly isn't the greatest flowing album, there is something for everybody on here.

    Track average 2.09

    Who Got It
    Shorty Right There
    Vendetta

    That Shit
    The Movement
    It's Like That
    The Stereotype
    That Nigga


    Easily one of the more overlooked albums in the collective, The Movement is a collection of songs that showcase Inspectah Deck's lyrical talent and his range in subject matter. Vendetta and City High in particular are shining gems in Deck's repertoire.

    Track average 2.33

    Cold Blooded
    Rollin' With You
    You Don't Want To Fuck With Me
    I Want Pussy
    All In Together Now
    Gettin High


    A sad drop in quality from Dirty's first album, Nigga Please features production from the Neptunes and wild lyrics from the late Big Baby Jesus. Obviously sentimentally overrated.

    # of Classic Tracks = 4
    Biscuits
    Holla
    Be This Way
    Run

    Beat the Clock
    It's Over


    Dropping the "Killah" from his name, Ghostface attempts to bring his R+B fans closer with this soulful record that may be a disappointment to the more hardcore Wu-Tang fans. Those with a heart will genuinely love it.

    The Glide
    Say
    Konichiwa Bitches
    Presidential MC

    Is It Me
    Somebody Done Fucked Up
    Dirty Mef
    Everything


    A solid offering after the very poor prequel album, 4:21 the Day After is anchored by RZA beat contributions. Presidential MC in particular is classic Wu-Tang, and one of the best Wu-Tang songs of the new century.

    Maxine
    Strawberry
    The Forest
    Walking Through the Darkness

    Street Chemistry

    Virtually destroyed what could have been a classic album due to sample clearance issues, Wallets none the less is a decent offering by Ghost with lush production and visceral lyrics.

    Train Trussle
    God is Love
    Stomp Da Roach
    Dopium
    New Classic

    Wu-Tang

    A very fine effort by U-God after his disastrous Mr. Xcitement album, the only drawback is a huge one. Three remixes on the end of the album destroy the track average and bring down what could have been a top 20 album.

    Sickness

    Can't Loose
    Fools
    Black Widow part 2
    Be a Man

    Build Strong

    The follow up to RZA's debut, Digital Bullet features strange experimental production by RZA. In some places (Brooklyn Babies, Sickness) it works, in others it doesn't.

    Bizarre
    Rumble
    Pleasure or Pain
    Night the City Cried

    Soul Dazzle
    Shell Shock
    Lay Down
    Turbo Charge


    The definition of an album that grows on you, GAR is U-God's uneven debut. Sorely missing guest appearances from his Wu-breathren, U-God admirably goes at it, mostly by himself.

    Kill Too Hard

    Although not technically a Wu-Tang album, and not technically a complete album, Chamber Music is a fine album with 8 new tracks that are all good, and features live instrumentation.

    Bob N' I
    The Grunge
    Grits

    You'll Never Know


    Rza's temporary transition from his Bobby Digital persona to Prince Rakeem is an interesting album full of 5% knowledge. Although largely overlooked, this is clearly an album that grows on you.

    Animal Planet
    Fam (Members Only)
    Sparring Minds

    Did Ya Say That?
    Fame
    Highway Robbery
    Luminal
    Uncut Material


    If this indeed is GZA's worst album, that says a lot about how great his personal collection is. Brilliant lyrics and fine production highlight this effort from the Clan's oldest general.

    Movas & Shakers
    Uncontrolled Substance
    Show N Prove


    It's sad to think about how great this album could have been, had not a flood destroyed the original version of this album. Still, it's well put together and although it lacks RZA production on many of the songs, Deck makes up for it with his dexterous tongue.

    Radioactive
    Iron Flag/The Glock
    The W

    Dashing (Reasons)

    Arguably the worst of the full length Wu-Tang albums, Iron Flag is still a very good album full of bangers and full of post 9-11 rhetoric. Coming just a year after the W, the album still manages to be a very complete, well put together creation and it features the best Wu-Tang track of the new century, the title track Iron Flag.

    Sonny's Missing
    Pyrex Vision
    Surgical Gloves
    Broken Safety
    Have Mercy
    Catalina
    Mean Streets


    Raekwon's follow up to his classic debut, OB4CL2 is a mind bending thrill ride which evokes emotions of the mid-nineties. Clearly one of the best post Forever offerings.

    GZA's latest outing was highly appreciated by critics and most fans. It features lush production and once again excellent lyrics by the ingenious word smith. Pencil and Alphabets are among the best tracks of the new century.

    It's silly that infighting spoiled the shine of this clearly loaded album. RZA's new sound does absolutely nothing to detract from the clan, in fact it bolsters the lyrics and makes the music sound more rich.

    Perfect World
    Cradle Rock

    Although bogged down by as many skits as Chamber Music, here is another record that is filled with bangers. Method Man's follow up to Tical may actually be better, but it's poorly constructed.

    RZA becomes even more experimental production wise, taking a bold step into the unknown on this album. Most of it works, some doesn't. Still a near classic.

    The best thing about this album isn't what it has, it's what it doesn't have. This album doesn't have a bad track on it. With uniform flowing production by Muggs and GZA's apt word play once again, this album is a very easy listen. While it may seem high at #11, the track average is one of the highest in the post Forever era (10th overall), despite the lack of classic tracks.

    GZA continues his formula of making short but loaded albums with Beneath the Surface. Although RZA takes a back seat on this one, producing just one track, Arabian Knight and Mathematics fill in for the bulk of the album admirably. This is a more modern Wu-Tang sound.

    After a 10 year wait for the last Wu-Tang member to drop his solo album, Masta Killa didn't disappoint. Dark, classic Wu-Tang production highlights this near perfect effort. A modern Wu-Tang classic.

    Sub Crazy
    P.L.O. Style
    I Get my Thang in Action
    Stimulation


    The first and perhaps least of the first round of solos, Tical is highlighted by RZA's crazy production and Mef's best on the mic. This is absolutely an album that takes getting used to, but patient listeners will be rewarded by the intricate, spastic sounds it provides.

    Saturday Nite

    Stroke Of Death
    Cherchez La Ghost


    The best post Forever album, and it's not really that close. Supreme Clientele is proof that the sophmore curse isn't absolute. It's arguable that this is Ghost's magnum opus, an album full of intense drug stories and sick beats, as well as a multitude of reminiscent feelings and emotional outbursts. A very personal album.

    #5 - Ironman

    Artist - Ghostface Killah
    Year - 1996

    # of Classic Tracks = 11
    Iron Maiden
    Wildflower

    Assassination Day
    Winter Warz
    Box in Hand
    Fish
    Daytona 500

    All That I Got Is You

    The Faster Blade
    Poisonous Darts
    Camay
    Motherless Child
    The Soul Controller
    Marvel


    I find it amazing that Motherless Child, Camay, and Poisonous Dartz didn't make the cut, and yet this album still has 11 classic tracks. Ghost is backed by RZA's most soulful production to date, and he shines with help from Raekwon and Cappadonna.

    #4 - Wu-Tang Forever

    Heaterz

    Maria
    Little Ghetto Boys
    The City
    The Projects
    Sunshower

    The double disc masterpiece, Wu-Tang Forever is the second most popular album but drops to forth due to track average. (6th Overall)
    No album can touch it's number of bangers, and no album can touch it's diverse production by RZA.

    The original rap mafioso album, OB4CL has been copied but never duplicated. Amazingly every track except Spot Rusherz was nominated a classic.

    Superb - nice work. Enjoyed reading that

    Edit - actually - thinking about it - I guess this explains why I, and obviously many others, became so obsessed by the Wu - and this list doesn't include monsters releases like Heavy Mental, Last Shall be First, Killarmy, Swarm etc.

    Will there ever be another movement like the Wu?

    I had to go back and fix something. Pro Tools seemed oddly high to me, and sure enough I made a mistake on the averages. Fixed now, from #12 to #16.

    I dunno.


    This list is just the generals, it would be really hard to calculate just where those albums would fall because killa bee polls don't get that much participation.

    Great work as usual B, you didn't waste your time, this sounds really coherent and matches what I've hear here and there on the Corp.

    BR - no criticism intended - was just highlighting that there are so many great realeases on that list - and it doesn't include (what are to me anyway) some of the great Wu releases.

    I'm sure many people did, but the voting certainly didn't reflect that, it averaged less than 2 out of 5 in the track averages. Maybe it needs more time, remember it's only a month old and there are like 5 women on this site.
