So, I should listen to the album and then do a thread about what?

I seriously think most of you people are beyond help. Reading comprehension is something you learn in elementary school, and I find it fascinating, how low of a percentage on here actually has that.

I thought u were complaining or something. I'm not hating this album at all, in fact just the opposite, and yes, I will rewrite a review later.

Yea, I'm gonna need a little more time on this one. I'm still digesting it all. I mean, he has entire songs on here that are quotable.

Ok. First of all, the use of the phrase "ain't all that" has never been uttered by me in the 34+ trips around the Sun, because A). I'm not a old black woman, and B). I didn't watch Nickelodeon in the 90's.

You have misquoted and taken what I said out of context, of course.

I feel like condensing it would have produced a sure fire classic. As it is, this is pretty good.
I said disc two wasn't as good as the first, that's all. And if you look here at this poll, in which YOU voted, you seem to agree with me,

http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/pol...ts&pollid=5672

Finally, I said there is some filler, which is to be expected from an album of 41 tracks. I never said there was "too much" filler.

Does anybody could post the lyrics of "Currents Of Events" ? Priest drops an amazing story of it, but my English is still not good nuff to hear all of these words !

I've read most of the comments here.

I listened to this album and honestly I was not impressed. It doesnt sound like the producers collaborated with Priest.

Tracks are hit or miss.

My issue is with Priests delivery/cadence and how he structures his rhymes with several tracks on this album.

As I was listening I felt something was off and after listening to other albums by Priest and various other artists I returned to this album and realised it was the way Priest was delivering his rhymes/bars.

IMO Great artists have the ability to have their voice and rhymes add to and compliment the overall production/music. And their rhymes are usual indictitive of the music. (I.E. Ominous sounding beats are complimented by ominous lyrics, which adds atmosphere to a song - for example see Carefull, Click Click - Wutang, Thug is a Drug - Mos Def.)

On several tracks Priest delivery doesnt compliment the music, his rhymes seem to be competing with the music for the listeners ear.

Priest sounds like he isn't feeling/emoting what he's rhyming.

Other times it just seems like Priest is just rhyming with no regard to the beat.

I didnt notice and emphasis in his rhymes (I.E. No pause to emphasize words No change of voice during delivery.)

This album has a lot to digest. I am still listening. I do however like

Listen To Me
Salute
Fire Stone
The Park
Lotus Flower
Energy Work

Theres more but I cant think of them because the track "Music of the Spheres" is so fucking aweful I was scratching my head as to what he was trying to accomplish. The Beat is chopped and edited as if the engineer/producer was'nt paid or just didnt give a shit so they pushed this out trying to be original and different. It doesnt work.


Before everyone starts to bash me remember this is just my opinion.

I don't disagree with a lot of what you are saying.

On several tracks Priest delivery doesnt compliment the music, his rhymes seem to be competing with the music for the listeners ear.

This I completely agree with.

I actually do think there is a lot of emotion in these tracks, I just don't think Priest goes out of his way to emphasize those emotions. Remember, we live in an emotionally dead society, and displaying emotion simply isn't cool.

Music of the Spheres has great lyrics and an abhorrent beat. It could have been a classic.

Spheres could have been great but the Rza didnt get a hold of it to make it work.


"I actually do think there is a lot of emotion in these tracks"

I agree. There are tracks with some emotion, but those are the exception.


"Remember, we live in an emotionally dead society, and displaying emotion simply isn't cool. "

^ If Priest took that and used it as the concept for this album It would have been better. His lyrics are deep. If he had that concept then went in with his lyrics I believe the album would have had a better cohesiveness.

I would give this a perfect rating after a week of listening there are of tracks (Super God, Lord Marduk) that are out of place but this is an astonishing record

its hit and miss but the tracks that work are nuggets of genius.

i kind of know what bens saying, but imo thats just the way priest always sounds, slightly offbeat. less rhythmic and more spoken word.
