Ghost has done it again, before I heard the album I was a bit sceptical about the fact that Rza had not contributed to the production side of it, but on the first listen all that went straight out the window. MF Doom, Madlib, J-Dilla (R.I.P.) and Pete Rock as well as others take the production seat this time round, and their beats suit ghost's style perfectly. What I like the most about the album is the fact that ghost has returned to his dark grimey sound, which I'm sure fans will agree, is when he sounds his best. All Wu members appear on the album, Raekwon, his original rhyming partner appears on some of the best tracks on the album. I don't want to give too much away so I'll leave it at that, so in short, if you're a fan of the real Wu-tang sound, you will love this album. Can't wait for Cuban Linx Part 2!

Ghostface's fifth solo album hit the UK shelves on Monday. I always worry about Ghost's output since Bulletproof Wallets but The Pretty Toney album was generally good, but you can't knock Supreme Clientele or Ironman so I was expecting a great album.
The album kicks off on some funky sh1t and Ghost's trademark soul samples are evident on many tracks.
You got production by Pete Rock-who is pretty much flawless as usual but most interesting (at least for me) are the tracks produced by MF DOOM-these tunes are pretty trippy but quite a departure for Ghost and a worthy addition to his back catalogue.
There is a full range of tunes on this LP from emotional tear jerkers like "Whip You With A Strap", thugged out stuff like "Crack Spot" and "Be Easy", plenty of Raekwon but the album does lack a killer RZA beat like "Run" on the last album. The track featuring The Wu Tang Clan is weird too-the vocals are almost too low in the mix and it sounds like its being done live on the radio or something.
Overall this album is worth buying for Ghostface fans, and anyone who thinks they know about hip-hop cos they rock to 50 cent and eminem should check this out-Ghost is like chewing dynamite.

this album is mad nice my faviroute at the mo and better than any other ghostface in my opinion im feelin all the old school beach samples they use in old movies and feels very aquatic and theres only about two tracks im skipin even the skits are ill the best tracks for me are the mf doom cuts ,clipse of doom and underwater even the tracks what i skip aint that bad when you play the album over again and for an album on a mainstream lablel and considering theese modern pieces of junk that are out nowdays it is dope as you gonna get with a lil bit of an underground feel kop this listen to it and feel it it took me a second listen to really apretiate it 5 star album ghost is still killah m.c

This album is nice. It has everything, skills beats and the best Wu-tang collaboration song (in my opinion) since triumph. The last song with B.I.G and raekwon is a classic. Buy this album, you won't be dissapointed.

Yes Ghostface !! He's back with beats from MF Doom, Pete Rock, Just Blaze and J-Dilla (r.i.p.) - no sign of Rza on the beats here. The MCing is sick, Ghost is always interesting to listen too, always coming with new styles. There's good bars from Raekwon and Trife here too. Good skits, and great beats. Be Easy is a proper banger, the Ne-Yo track is maybe a touch out of place, but whatever, the album is wicked overall.
4 1/2 stars.

At last Ghostface is back with his 5th studio album and i'm loving it!
for me it's as good as Supreme Clientele!
of corse theres a few annoying tracks the most annoying being kilo.
Alot of future classics on here too i reckon such as back like that and be easy.
Also loving the tracks mf doom produced my faviorte being 9 Milli Bros which has the whole wu tang rhyming over dooms beats!
Top tracks:
9 Milli Bros
Clipse of Doom
Back Like That
Whip You with a Strap
Be Easy
Bottom line could be ghosts best work yet a future classic!!!!!

Format: Audio CD
It was likely that the members of the once mighty Wu-Tang Clan and their many relatives were becoming too prolific - releases post 1997 seemed too varied and many were lacking in quality. There became an idea that the initial wave of Wu-Tang Releases - 36 Chambers, Method Man's Tical, Raekwon's Only Built for Cuban Linx, Genius/GZA's Liquid Swords, Gravediggaz's 6 Feet Deep, ODB's Return to the 36 Chambers, & Ghostface Killah's Ironman set the bar too high and would remain unsurpassed. Follow-up albums by Genius/GZA, Ghostface and Method Man all seemed lacking, while the Cappadonna, Inspectah Deck, Masta Killa and U God albums were lacklustre. To be fair, you could still get a one or two disc compilation of classics from the many albums released, and the soundtrack to Ghost Dog: the Way of the Samurai is one of the greatest Wu-related releases. Fishscale follows Supreme Clientale, Ghostface's album that received a mixed reception - possibly as it wasn't Ironman?

There is a notion that acts and producers who have appeared in the wake of the Clan have surpassed them and that the RZA and co are no longer pioneers - something that could be argued when you hear a producer like Dangermouse or Timbaland, or acts like Kanye West, The Neptunes and Outkast/The Dungeon Family. Fishscale has countered that notion, a concept album centred around cocaine (the source being `Fish' from `Ironman' or tracks like `Glaciers of Ice' & `Ice Cream' from `Only Built 4 Cuban Linx' as well as the `Scarface' references common to hip hop). It's done very well critically and was seen as the best hip hop release of 2006, which is fair enough - though am sure this popularity will irk others to suggest other albums for that honour!
