Biography

Biographyby Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Emerging in 1993, when Dr. Dre's G-funk had overtaken the hip-hop world, the Staten Island, NY-based Wu-Tang Clan proved to be the most revolutionary rap group of the mid-'90s -- and only partially because of their music. Turning the standard concept of a hip-hop crew inside out, the Wu-Tang Clan were assembled as a loose congregation of nine ... Read more in Amazon's Wu-Tang Clan Store

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 star only because Forvever is better 3 Jan 2008
Format:Audio CD
A decade ago the Wu dropped their second album. It was a much maligned effort in certain quarters but has garnered much praise since. Ten years later it would appear that the RZA has repeated the trick. Coming under fire from the clan itself this offering is indeed a more sedate affair but then the first album since the death of that key clan ventricle ODB was always going to impact this piece in some way. I remember seeing the Wu at Hammersmith even before ODB's death, he was one of two key absentees that night along with Meth and the mere mention of his name sparked the biggest cheer of the night. This album through its beats, its guitars, and its subtlety like Forever will be only be truly appreciated in two or three years time when all those whack mothergoose/Dr Seuss mcs like 50 cent try to emulate it. The RZA's only fault as clearly demonstrated here is that he is way ahead of his time.

5.0 out of 5 stars different wu but classic wu 9 Mar 2008
Format:Audio CD
This album was so anticipated and reviews have been split. But personally i love the album take it back is an early 90's sounding hip hop track where wu sound hungry and focused. Campire is a haunting track which wouldnt sound out of place on a kill bill soundtrack!, when the beat kicks in it bumps along with method man spitting fire and the wicked soul sample completing a memorable wu track. Another highlight is life changes which is an ode to odb with some very poignant lyrics.

Standout track is without doubt HEART GENTLY WEEPS rhe moment dhani harrison plays the guitar it give sme goosepumps and with erykah badu on vocals the track is amazing. i love it!!!

wicked album no real week spots on the album, perhaps could have been a bit shorter in my view. But its a different Wu but it gives them more depth showing how they can switch up the style to offer something new. Whilst keeping elements of the classic Wu. RZA IS THE KING!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the future of hip-hops soundscape 12 Dec 2007
Format:Audio CD
A word of warning this is a album what you have to let grow on you as the sound is that fresh. I have listened to this album a total of 10 times now. I admit my first listen I thought it was a mess. I was left with the same belief Wu have definately fallen off. I thought I have had since 'Iron Flag'.
But I refused to let this thought consume me & really didnt want it to be true so I gave it a chance. I put it back on & listened again & again & again. Each time it got gradualy better & the lyrics began to come together over the beats much better.
On my 6th listen it all clicked. It seemed to make sense, the beats, the rhymes, the flow - all top notch & I began loving it. I now realise the problem was the sound is so fresh it took me a while to get used to it. But once I did - bloody hell its amazing. The best thing ive heard in a long time. I can see this disc burning in my CD player its going to be getting that much rotation.

Sure its not the '36 chamber' sound we all fell in love with them for. But these guys have grown. They arent teenagers/young adults anymore. It would sound stupid of them to be rapping in that style now. We all ask our favourite MC's 'to keep it real' & as such cant expect them to go rapping about hanging out on street corners being the tough, martial arts obsessed kids. That sound is not them anymore, this is (although we do have a return of the martial art flick samples, thankfully) . Deal with it.
Same with the beats - I doubt we will never get the rawness of the original Wu sound ever again due mainly to technology making all sounds to clean & clear in this day & age.
The beats on here are as much a definition of today's grown Wu as the rough, hard beats were to yesterdays Wu.
This is better than every album thats been released in the last 8 years at least. It just takes a few listens to understand that

5.0 out of 5 stars Absoloutely Superb - It simply is. 7 July 2008
Format:Audio CD
This album is simply stunning, for sure. Three listens in I got it, at first you don't - you feel like you've missed the punchline, not been let in on the secret. However three listens in on a night train in Thailand bound for Chiang Mai I had goosepimples all over and was in no doubt that this is a seriously classy, innovative and smouldering Wu-Tang masterclass offereing. 8 of these tunes are in my opinion as good as it has ever got with the Wu while the other 8 are just plain awesome. The ODB offerings are brilliant - dont worry mateys hes all there from beyond the grave. Raekwon and Ghostface need'nt worry - The Clan have tapped a massive gleaming un-tapped ocean of oil.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent comeback from the Clan 14 Dec 2007
Format:Audio CD
As I massive Wu fan I have been eagerly anticipating the return of the clan for some time. However, I have had mixed feelings towards some of the clan's more recent offerings, and was hoping that the RZA could step things up a level with the new album. I wasn't hoping for a return to the mid 90s Wu Tang sound - those days have passed and it's just not possible to come up with a new Wu Tang Forever or 36 Chambers that wouldn't sound contrived. I was just hoping that the RZA would come from his heart with the new album, with some real Wu Tang killa bees tracks.

Overall I think the album is great. There are a number of stand-out tracks, and the album has a definitely Wu feel that was lacking from other releases like Iron Flag. No, it's not 36 Chambers, but it feels like a Wu Tang album. I though the production was excellent. I have heard that Raek and Ghost have come out and said they aren't happy with the final product, but I really enjoyed the feel of the album. It's smoldering, sinister, dark, and yet fresh and clean at the same time. It's has a very atmospheric, almost cinematic feel, and as an album it hangs together well. Ok, so it's rightly not going to be remembered as the best Wu Tang album of all time, but if this does prove to be the last outing for the clan in its entirety (minus ODB of course, RIP), then it is a worthy final chapter in the history of the world's greatest ever rap group. Wu Tang Forever!
