The music world had never heard anything like it. Eight MCs from New York with at least three personas each and an unmitigated passion for kung-fu movies release an album full of blood, passion, violence and Eastern mysticism coupled with eerie piano and string arrangements and pulsating basslines. Now, a decade after its release it is believed to be the second most essential hip hop album ever recorded (just behind Public Enemy's 'It Takes A Nation Of Millions').
The moment Ghostface Killah nails the first line on 'Bring Da Ruckus' the hip hop world would never be the same again. After an uncompromising verse and with no fuss or pause Ghostface passes the microphone to Raekwon who seamlessly continues. Hip hop groups of course were not unheard of, but where groups like Public Enemy and the Ultramagnetic MCs each had a main rapper, here there were eight equally visible rappers, each as talented as the last.
While eventually the group would collapse under the weight of kung-fu kitsch, ten years ago they were genuinely intimidating. Their description of what they do to journalists that serves as the introduction to 'Method Man' is grotesque. Earlier Gza had threatened to 'slit a n***er's back like a Dutch master killer" on 'Wu Tang: 7th Chamber'.
What makes the Wu Tang so entertaining is that each MC has their own personality well-crafted, even at this formative stage of their careers. Each MC brings an enthusiasm and character to the album. Surrounding the three master storytellers (Raekwon, Gza and Ghostface Killah) are U-God and Inspectah Deck who have never bettered their respective verses on this LP, the director Rza who also delivers most of his best verses here, witty prankster Method Man and resident lunatic ODB.

The titles of all but one of the tracks say that these are "clean" versions. Having just bought the mp3 album, I can confirm that they are the explicit versions.

This will please some who, like me, wanted the explicit versions but might have been afraid to purchase this because of the "clean" in the title.

And it will upset some who have bought this expecting there to be no bad language. Because it's all hanging out there.

I hope this is helpful to prospective purchasers.

Easily the best album by wu-tang clan. I recently bought "The W" and although it is still very good, it isn't quite as good as 36 chambers. The beats are heavy and its spooky/eerie music trademark can be definately heard. A must-buy for any wu-tang clan fan, and also any gravediggaz fans, as the music is almost identical with some raps from wu-tang members, and was in fact produced by wu-tang's RZA. Easily worth£7.00 for an urban-classic.

This is the best hip-hop album I've ever bought. I got it back in '98, and I still listen to it a lot. It takes a few listens to get into the slang the Wu use, but after that you're hooked. The beats are very raw, which can take some getting used to, but once you do get used to it most other hip-hop sounds like pop; soft and over-produced, and you just won't want to listen to it any more. What turns me on in rap is the lyrics, and some of the lyrics on this album are phenomenal. Mixing references to classic kung-fu films with slang from the projects in 'Shaolin' Island, the Wu came up with an original style which is complemented by the fact that as there's so many of them, you never get bored: after a while you pick up the different styles of the clan members. The lyrics are very hardcore, but often witty and amusing. This album is easily the best they made - the only other Wu album which comes close, in my opinion, is GZA's Liquid Swords (which is also superb). 36 Chambers is a definitive album, a must-have for hip-hop fans. If you don't have it, go and buy it. Now.

Groundbreaking production, hypnotic beats, razor sharp lyrics over dark atmospheric strings and loops. You will need to listen to this album a few times before it's lyrics and beats melt into your head and become an integral part of your mind. The production is second to none and has a very gritty street feel to it. The lyrics are simply breathtaking and at times inspiring complementing the funky keyboard riffs and driving beats. This album has it all from tracks that set your ear drums on fire and fill you with rage to heartfelt tracks that command your attention and make you think about the black struggle in urban America. The Wu Tang Clan enjoyed phenomenal success on this classic album and resultantly moulded the future of hip hop with many artists trying to imitate the WU's style without success. Most of the 9 artists in the Wu Tang Clan went on to do solo projects and the producer RZA has become one of the most talented and innovative producers in the music business. Buy this album, listen and learn and let the Wu Tang phenomenon grab hold of you!

Ok, let's start with track 1.
Bring the ruckus is a real old school track with one of the best beats on the album. A banging chorus by the Rza, but all the rappers are outshined on the 4th verse by Gza.
The next track, "shame on a n***a" is short and sweet. The tune is slightly more in the times and the beat is dope. Ol dirty Bza shines on this track coz it suits him perfectly.
Track 3 "Clan in da front" starts with a slightly drawn out intro from Rza but smashes through with a great beat and the genuis/gza. This song is one of the best I've heard from the wu..and i've heard alot! nuff said.
Track 4 is a group effort with all 8 members trying to out do each other. After another fairly long intro a real skeletal rza beat takes the wu through the 7th chamber. I would say ghost face and gza shine most on this track, but they're all great.
Track 5 is another classic. "Can it all be so simple then" is very deep lyrically. Both ghost face and Raekwon shine on this track.
Track 6 is the first real fast pace track on the album, started off by a classic kung fu sample. All rappers shine on this track and the beat is one that will always have a place in my heart.
Track 7, 'co produced by method man' is another classic wu banga which finally gives the rza a chance to explode on the mike. Great beat, great lyrics, great tunes. great track.
Track 8 is the deepest and most well thought out track on the album. "C.R.E.A.M" (Cash Rules Everything Around Me) has a perfect piano loop and ace beat that helps Raekwon and Inspektah Deck spit rhymes about life in the hood. A classic Wu banga. Play it loud!
Track 9's intro is one you don't wanna play to your mummy.
