    Default U-God: Golden Arms Redemption review thread

    how does everyone feel about this lp IMO it was on the level of Return To the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version atleast it got as much airtime in my car and my walkman

    my personal favs: pleasure and pain, shell shock, bizarre

    Aright i'll make this shorter than my other reviews.

    Enter U-God-3/5-What's so bad about this intro? Sure there's no beat but it's just U-God vibing and I like what he says. Cool little intro.

    Turbulence-5/5-Man this beat something great. Gets you fucking hyped. This is a pretty hard beat to flow too. I think U-God did dope shit on this song though. Don't skip this.

    Glide-4/5-Another banger to me. Good beat to me. Not perfect but it's good. U-God drops some dope shit but Leathaface was on some crazy shit. Kills this shit. Don't like the 1 minute cursing rave don't know what that was about.

    Dat's Gangta-4/5-Dope song. There's more to Trumaster than you think. He doesn't drop real simple beats. He always has that little touch to him, which makes him an amazing producer. Good beat I love Uey on this song too. The hook isn't that bad as the other guy said.

    Soul Dazzle-5/5-This is one of my favorite tracks. I love the beat. Horns always make good beats. U-God is fucking great on this track. Plus, I like the hook, it's catchy. Banging song.

    Bizarre-3/5-This beat is, well it's ok. There's nothing ok about U-God's voice and flow though. He kills it. He showed up for this song.

    Rumble-4/5-One of the more grimy tracks. Pretty simple beat, but it works. This is the U-God I like, where he sounds angry on the mic. Deck, Meth, and Leatha drop really good verses, Meth's is the best.

    Pleasure and Pain-5/5-Ok this song is pretty much a work of art. A classic song. U-God proves that he is a great MC. This song could be on repeat for awhile.

    Stay in Your Lane-2/5-Pretty boring song. RZA fucked over Uey. Come on RZA is better than this. He obviously didn't try. Uey tries to be more laid back as this beat is so boring.

    Shellshock-4/5-Another banger. Good enough beat. U-God kills it and I love how the hook gets more dramatic.

    Lay Down-3/5-Would be a 5/5 if there was no yelling. Don't yell U-God. Don't. Dope otherwise.

    Hungry-2/5-Bah. Stupid beat.

    Turbo Charge-5/5-Ok some say this is a whack RZA beat. You kidding me? Fucking sick beat.

    Knocking at Your Door-4/5-Ok, pretty bad aside, this song is fucking sick. U-God destroys it twice. You dont need to hear Leathaface's verse, it's all about Uey on this song.

    Night the City Cried-4/5-Great way to end. U-God can tell a story. His best storytelling came on Knucklheadz, and maybe he doesn't set the scene like Rae and Ghost can, but he's up there. Awesome song. Too bad there was no "part 2" on his next album. Fuck Xcitement

    Ok well to conclude this album has so many bright points. Fuck the U-God haters. Great album to me.

    1. Enter U God - absolutely awful way to the start the album. would have fit nicely on mr.xcitement. 2/10
    2. Turbulence - banger. off-the-wall but dope rza beat (love the drums) that seems hard as hell to flow to, but which fits u-god's fragmented, choppy style of flow perfectly. he kills this shit. the lyrics are nuts, classic all-over-the-place u-god. 9/10
    3. Glide - nice. beat shouldnt really work with those weak strings and wacky bassline but it somehow does, even if its not one of deck's best beats. u-god comes correct, but lethaface totally murders it. 8/10
    4. Dat's Gangsta - oh trizzatrizzamast, you are a king among men. this beat is fucking incredible. that has to be the dirtiest bassline in existence, and the drums syncopate it perfectly (listen to em). and it has a true master trademark, the sounds buried deep in the beat that you dont really hear unless you try but which give the beat substance and depth (like the organ at the end of every second bar). u-god sounds right at home over it too even if his lyrics are a bit dumb at times ("thug men, gunmen, dirty lung sticker, arch-crime Hitler, lurking with the lifter, shifter"). the hook is the worst hook ever (the last chorus when he goes "ROOOOOAAAACKKK!!" is hilarious). but it's only the worst hook ever only for a few minutes. 7.5/10
    5. Soul Dazzle - because this song has an even worse hook. what the hell was he thinking. otherwise, the beat is alright but he sounds really bad over it. 5/10
    6. Bizarre - an all round nice track. nice rhymes, nice beat. even a nice hook! 7.5/10
    7. Rumble - dont really like this beat, it's a really generic, cookie-cutter "grimy wu beat". u-god sounds really bad here again. i dont know what the hell hes doing here, its not like he ever tried to rhyme like this before. lethaface, ins, and meth are pretty nice but u-god surpasses his previous worst hook ever with that stupid "RAAAAAGEE!! ROOOLL!! ROOOOCK!! FAAAALLLL!!! RUUUUMBLE!!!" shit
    8. Pleasure Or Pain - this is real nice. soulful beat (the chord changes during the verses really helps the rhymes). u-god spits some deep, apocalyptic ghetto-poverty poetry that sounds kinda like killah priest. hell razah doesnt say anything particularly interesting but sounds nice anyway. 8/10
    9. Stay In Your Lane - one of rza's worst beats ever. u-god sounds awkward and clumsy, and the hook is really bad (even if not as bad as rumble, soul dazzle, or dat's gangsta). 3/10
    10. Shell Shock - nice enough. all the MCs seem to be talking about entirely different shit but all come nice. beat is pretty dull (sounds like something from immobilarity) but not too bad. 7/10
    11. Lay Down - really nice (if simple) beat but u-god ruins it by doing one of his wacky flows rather than just the flow that had worked fine on every single fucking song he had done before this album. and the hook is the worst yet 3/10
    12. Hungry - this is just bad. sounds like he's trying to be tricky or something. bad beat, and very very bad chorus. the rhymes in the middle actually have some nice lyrics but it cant save this track. 3/10
    13. Turbo Charge - considering uey was bitchin about rza not having enough input on this lp, its ironic that rza hit him off with two of his worst beats ever (this and stay in your lane). the rhymes are pretty weak. and i dont know if the hook is the worst on this album but its certainly one of the worst ever (like 19 of the worst 20 hooks ever would be u-god).
    14. Knockin At Your Door - average beat, good rhymin from uey and lethaface. bad hook, again 7/10
    15. Night The City Cried - i like the fact he tried to do a storytelling joint but hes really bad at it. his flow is monotonous as hell, doesnt get you involved like rae or ghost. 5/10

    overall, probably about 5/10

    Pleasure and Pain, Bizarre, Dat's Gangsta and Rumble are bangers. Soul Dazzle is aight. The rest of the album is garbage.

    highly under rated.. this album is one of the top 5 to me out of wu stuff.. i always listen 2 it.. if u dont ave it.. shame on u.

    and i want to echo this

    Turbo Charge-5/5-Ok some say this is a whack RZA beat. You kidding me? Fucking sick beat
    .

    turbo charge imo is the best song on the album.. that beat is crazy!! ugod kills is!

    the second best song is turbelence! that shit is just off the meat !
