I bought this album with the expectations of hard non commercial beats with some off the wall lyrically dexterious rhymes ,and i wasn't disappointed. The album starts off in a typical wu-tang style with a film sample off of an old gangster film and then almost slyly (for a wu-tang album) comes the beat for the first track Iron maiden.The rest of the album really continues in this style with some comic interludes and some frank rhymes about life on the streets. The production from the RZA is slick as usual,but for me the album falls below the standard set by the GZA on his hip-hop classic Liquid swords. This is still not an album to be taken lightly and dismissed,it is well worth a listen,stand out tracks are Fish and Daytona 500

4.0 out of 5 stars A great debut 1 Mar 2003
Format:Audio CD
Dennis Coles aka Ghostface Killah was the fifth member of the Wu to release a solo LP, 'Ironman' arriving after Genius, Raekwon, Method Man and ODB had all cut their teeth on solo projects. The previous four albums had all been declared classics upon release by fans; 'Ironman' had a lot to live up to. It did not disappoint one bit.
Like every other early Wu solo album, it is at times a group effort. In fact, Raekwon and Cappadonna are giving second billing on the album. This trio works to best effect on the club favourite 'Daytona 500'. On it, Rza drags the listener into his chamber of innovation. The track grabs a heavy sample of Bob James' seminal funk track 'Nautilus' and couples it with some outrageous scratching. Method Man delivers a typically nonchalant verse on 'Box In Hand'. Meanwhile, Raekwon and Cappadonna reappear on 'Camay' to play sweet-talking suitors along with Ghostface.
Certainly the LP is best known for containing Ghostface's most commercial track so far, 'All That I Got Is You'. It's almost the perfect blueprint for a commercially successful hip hop track. Combining a guest spot from Mary J Blige with a heavy sample of 'Maybe Tomorrow' by the Jackson 5, the track tells the story of Ghostface's deprived childhood. "Fifteen of us in a 3 bedroom apartment / Roaches everywhere, cousins, Aunts was there / Four in the bed, two at the foot, two at the head / I didn't like to sleep with John John he peed the bed." It's a heartbreaking track. Rappers seldom manage to get tearjerkers right, but Ghostface manages it without breaking a sweat.
Credit must go to Rza for some innovative production. Rza, in his trademark style, takes sparse percussion and bass thuds and marries them to lush orchestration, baroque riffs and 1960s soul samples.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a wubanga 9 April 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is a classic album from start to finish the beats are like you've never heard although Liquid swords is a heavy album this has heavy bass tracks like BOX IN HAND & BLACK JESUS, POISONOUS DARTS, WINTER WARZ which cappadonna's verse full of lyrical technique will have you reciting every word. I think alot of people spend too much time comparing the Wu tang artists against each other when you realise they have their own styles especially Ghostface has a faster rapping approach compared to Gza GFK has one of the illest rhymes on ONLY BUILT 4 CUBAN LINX on WU GAMBINOS but the ironman album should be considered a class album one of Ghost's best.

3.0 out of 5 stars Watching flick's by De Niro.. 28 Jun 2014
By Shirley
Format:Audio CD
Ghostface Killah's first solo album but not his best, it seems rushed and amateurish with only a few good tracks, and all his early material wasn't impressive unless he was on another clan member's album, he is however the most lyrically gifted and shines on Enter the Wu-Tang 36 Chambers, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, Wu-Tang Forever and Supreme Clientele.
All his later albums are different beats with better production (check out 'Twelve Reason's To Die').

Best tracks on this album:

2. Wildflower
7. Winter Warz (feat U-God, Raekwon, Masta Killa & Cappadonna)
11. Daytona 500 (feat Raekwon & Cappadonna)
