I'm still getting used to this album. Despite what you may hear, its not anywhere near 6 Feet Deep. Lots of knowledge being dropped, but its not as banging as most Wu classics. Still a great cd. Da Bomb and Pit of Snakes are awesome songs and the best two on the cd.

Amazing album...as good as they come...

i personally like the absence of Rza on Nightmare in A-minor to this album...

1. 6 feet deep
2. Nightmare in A-minor
3. Pick, sickle n' shovel
4. Gravediggaz Demos
5. Tricky vs. Gravediggaz
6. 6 feet under

that's how i see their discography...

I can't decide between this and 6 Feetdeep

This was alot cleaner
i.e Wu-tang Forever

6 FeetDeep
i.e Enter The Wu-Tang 36 Chambers

definite Wu-Fam classic

Unexplained is crazy production by Poetic
one of his best tracks

Default Gravediggaz - The Pick, The Sickle and The Shovel



Without a doubt one of my favorite albums of all time. Period. Produced by RZA and the Wu-Elements, 'diggaz second album had a different sound than the first. I think that this one sounded more cohesive than the first. Sure, the ridicously dope horrorcore theme was dichted but they replaced with something even more frightening, reality. Psychological lyrics instead of raw horror. Genuis! The painted a picture on this album that was sometimes nervous, even paranoid but so damn real. This is what hiphop artists need to do when they drop another album, take it to another level, goddamned! It's a classic! Yes the c-word some, you herbs. Let me spell it for you C-L-A-S-S-I-C.



Too many gems to choose from, but the ones that stuck the most to me were Dangerous minds, They never come back, The night the eart cried & What's going on. And offcourse, Twelve Jewels the track that had/have some of us still grinding for that "Cure" album. But its Dangerous Minds whom have me picking my copy and blaze it (which I do really, really often)

The production is supberb but its the lyrical content which takes it to there. For those who are too young (it's okay, we all been there) or those just slept on it (you fucks), exhibit A

As nuclear dropped out of the sky, killin birds and to fear
For hydroperoxide and sodium oxide, deep down outta basements
Fish turned lopside and upside down from atomic facelifts
Through the blackness I saw John the Baptist, on the atlas
Holdin the masters to my Psalm under his arm
But long before I even wrote 'em, 23 elders each wrote me a Psalm
And placed them within my motor neurons
It contained the aproximate date of the Apocalypse
Deposited in scripts of the 20th century prophets
The clock ticks, tick, tick, tick
Upon the land borders, I count down the manslaughters
Military camcorders under ocean waters
Red October causin fish to grow arms, legs, tits, and double heads
Mutating the eggs as the radiation spreads over the water beds
I watch Mother Nature as she bled
Grym, was placed in skin casing to being lacing hyms through the basement
Won't be no escapin from the South to the North
Where you run ten paces and your face is fallin off
- Grymreaper - Repentance Day -

Exhibit B? Well, go buy/play this fucking album and stop sleeping on it!!! Haha.. am not kidding!
