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

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

What would we do without the Wu-tang Clan? Not only are their individual albums superb, (Ghostface Killah, Method Man, Ol' Dirty Bastard, et al), but Iron Flag shows Rza's sonic adventures behind that production desk get ever more sublime, sci-fi and sexy. Obviously touched by his Ghost Dog: War of the Samurai off-key zen noir experience, Rza kicks off with a great celluloid touch, then gets so jiggy on your arse that even those "righteous" backpacking notebook geeks will have serious ants in their pants. Rza's has marichari horns, dancehall rhythms, squelchy, fat funk and serious "I Testify (to the spliff)" gospel divas as well as 60s soul singers, Ann Peebles and Ron Isley on Wu's fantastic fourth album. Not only is this a straight-up party rap with thought-provoking, entertaining lines, it's a jive-ass hip-hop roadshow of an LP. Killah, Method Man, Raekwon, Gza and the rest of the crew are on phenomenal form. Prolific they may be, but there is no holding back on the quality, subject matter and delivery of these rhymes. It don't matter whether they are representing their name/hood with a very fine Flavor Flav on "Soul Power (Black Jungle)" or licking the competition on the electro funk of "Uzi" (Pinky Flag"): Iron Flag shows the doubting Thomases out there why there has never been a better rap posse than the Wu-- Flav's alma mater included. --Reuben Dessay

4.0 out of 5 stars The Wu Tang Clan fail yet again to make a bad album 16 April 2003
Format:Audio CD
With yet more below average Wu solo albums sandwiched in between 'The W' and 'Iron Flag', feelings were mixed at to whether this would be the first bad album to carry the entire Wu Tang Clan. Despite some below par performances from the Wu's big-hitters recently (stand up Rza, Method Man and Gza), when the Wu have a family get-together they continue to produce some of the finest hip hop around. Their previous LP, 'The W' was an attempt by the Wu to retread the mystic hip hop that they perfected on their debut. I think it was a terrific album, the record buying public didn't and 'The W' suffered at retail. 'Iron Flag' is unmistakably a more commercial effort than their last release, but perhaps strangely, it doesn't suffer a jot.
By 2001, Ghostface Killah had unquestionably stepped up to become the Wu Tang empire's most valuable commodity. He is simply untouchable on every line of every track. On 'Rules' Ghostface gets in his two cents on the 9/11 attacks, "Who the f**k knocked our buildings down? / who the man behind the World Trade massacres, step up now / where the four planes at huh is you insane b****? / fly that s**t over my hood and get blown to bits." Later he sensibly suggests, "Mr. Bush sit down, I'm in charge of the war." In fact 'Rules' is one of the highlights on the album, featuring a rejuvenated Method Man chanting the, "How the f**k did we get so cool?" chorus line. Another highlight, 'Pinky Ring', really shouldn't be a decent record but somehow is. Taking the sample from 'Sesame Street' it somehow manages to remain credible. 'Pinky Ring' follows 'Gravel Pit's' lead by being a Wu track aimed squarely at chart domination. It didn't set the UK singles chart alight, but it remains a hip hop club favourite two years after it's release.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Wu-Tang return... 18 Dec 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
First came 36 chambers. Raw, rugged, gritty...perfect. Then Forever was released, and hated by many although I believe it was an excellent album. The W, Wu-Tang's third album was flawed yet still had potential. And now with Iron Flag they have constructed an album that can be fit to be compared with their glorious debut. On Iron Flag we have lots of brassey, banging samples, and urgent, from-the-heart lyrics. We go from the sample of 'Jingle Bells' on 'Dashing' to the furious funk of 'Uzi (Pinky Ring)'. And the Wu have learnt their lesson, dropping all guest stars but Flava Flav and Ron Isley. One of the best cuts is 'Rules'...it starts off with sampled, scratched classic Wu lines from previous albums including the banging 'Wu Tang, Wu Tang' chant and Ghostface proceeds to tell George Bush to 'sit down, we're in charge of the war'. In short, we have gone back to basics - rugged production (although more brass, less piano), Kung-Fu samples and ILL lyrics. Buy this album...

5.0 out of 5 stars Best since 36 Chambers. 12 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Since it drooped, this album has been slated everywhere. The truth is, that it isn't another 36 chambers, it's a progression from it. There aren't as many dark tracks as seen on 36 Chambers (C.R.E.A.M, Tearz,), but instead, Iron Flag sees the rise to prominence of musically tight tracks, with dope rhymes dropped over the top - eg. Reunited off of Forever.
Re-enter the Wu-Tang - Iron Flag.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine Album 23 Oct 2013
By Bubo
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a rewarding album to listen to. The production, sampling, beats are second to none and rate high even within the Wu's own very high standards. On Media Player I rated the tracks 'Rules', 'Uzi', 'Y'All Been Warned', 'One of These Days' and the closer 'The Wu' all five stars. Four stars were given to 'Chrome Wheels', 'Radioactive', 'Back in the Game', 'Iron Flag', 'Dashing' and a fair/neutral three stars to Soul Power and Babies. The other good thing about this album is NO SKITS which I always find an unnecessary distraction.

A must own for Wu enthusiasts, this album has a long shelf life.

Four stars and a half.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Wu- Tang Classic 27 Dec 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
In my oppinion this is the best wu album to date, it contains Pinky Ring which would be my song for the year. There are several good rhymes on here and although the cover art maybe lame, never judge a cd by its cover. Dashing is a clever remix of the christmas carol which is funny. I would say only hardcore wu tang fans would enjoy this album because it is so much heavier compared to Ja Rule or Jay Z with respect to them both, So basically if you like wu tang a lot, go get this album!

5.0 out of 5 stars WU TANG BANGA NO.4!!! 14 Mar 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is album is, no doubt about it, better than any other album I've heard this year. Let's get right into the review.
Track 1. "In the hood" starts off with a classic intro and then rza starts spitting over a slow tempo for about a minute. But don't let this fool you. Soon after an upbeat horn blowing tune rushes in with excellent performances from Masta Killa and Inspektah Deck. Great beat too. What an amazing track to start off with.
Track 2. After the best intro I've ever heard out of the Wu Tang, bar none, with scratching from up to seven different albums, ghost starts off to another great rza beat and tells the world how pi**ed off he is about the world trade centre disaster. But the whole crew on this track spit greeat lines.
Track 3. Alot of people didn't like the vocals on this song. But I think they're great. The beat is absolutely amazing, the tune is another iron flag classic and all the lyrics are true hard core. So far this album deservers six stars!
Track 4. It takes a while to get used to Flava Flav's hook on this song, but once you start to appreciate his flow on the beat you'll love this track just as much as I do.
Track 5. I'm sure you're all familiar with "Uzi" so all I'll say is that the tune is a banging brass classic complete with scratchings of the wu tang trade mark sound...(sooooooooo). All 8 emcees try to outshine one another on this track. I'm glad Cappadonna wasn't around to ruin this song but oh how I miss Ol Dirty. (Gza completely outshines everyone on this track).
Track 6. I think " One of these days" is one of the weaker tracks on the album, but U-God saves it with his great flow on the last verse.
Track 7.
