didnt listn to the lp yet...

"As those involved tell it, the story came first, the music second and the lyrics last. Twelve Reasons to Die is the creation myth of a black superhero set in 1960s Italy, which looks a lot like 1990s Scorsese."

The more and more i listen the more and more im feelin the vintage wu feel of this album. Ghost did a great job and so did the features. It is a very short album and some of the songs orchestra like singin b4 tracks annoyed me but i understand why there on the track but i often find myself skippin past the singin. Ghost is great of course, with his lyrics painting a perfect picture 4 the story on each track. I dont think its classic but it should get no less than a 8/10. My only worry as far as Ghost goes is that it seems as if his voice is extra dry and raspy like it hurts for him to talk. I notice it in interviews now too. I know tat everyones voice changes but ghosts seems to get worse everytime i hear him. I hope its just because of all the touring and shit...nigga may need to rest his voice b4 he starts recording that supreme clientele 2.

I listened to it yesterday. It's a great album. It is very short, but overall I enjoyed it. The production was excellent and really brought you into the album.

I agree with this in terms of Ghost at his absolute best; it's a step down from Supreme or even Bulletproof, but his writing on this one still fucks with 36, Cuban, or Ironman...overall, I love this album; they execute the storyline well and the overall aesthetic is really dope ...one of my best friends since I was a little kid who has little time for any post Swarm/Pillage/Heavy Mental era Wu shit fucks with this album hard (so homo) and ended up ordering the vinyl/remix tape combo...point being that Adrian Younge gets it, and is a good person for to possibly consult or produce on the next Wu album

^You think his writing on this fucks with Ironman? Hmm, must say I disagree, the writing here is way too linear to be on Ironman's level imo.

I like this album, but I do need to give it an in depth listen. But it's definitely solid, and the features compliment the tracks.

I thought I was the only one that didn't get mine because I keep seeing the brown tape pop up on ebay and everyones saying how good it is. I should have just canceled my preorder because I ended up getting the private press edition when that came out.

They should sell the Brown Tape separately. That'd be nice.

What an INCREDIBLE record...

Just got my copy on Friday and am still absorbing it, but I knew it was a true CLASSIC after the first spin...

The creativity and atmosphere of this album blew me away...Props to Ghost for being open-minded enough to fully immerse himself into the concept and to trust a young gun like Adrian Younge's direction. That's not easy for an established veteran like Ghost to do. But Ghost has always been good with taking chances and experimenting, so it's not that surprising.

The attention to detail on this album is ridiculous...Adrian Younge is an absolute MONSTER.

Best Wu release since.........Supreme Clientele? I think so.
