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

BBC Review

Each release by the now-legendary Wu-Tang Clan is met with trepidation by listeners. Since their game-changing inception album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), subsequent collections are worried over in the hope that they might match the majesty of that first recording, rather than the overlong hotchpotch of Wu-Tang Forever or any of their inconsistent recent work. Even more confusion is thrown into the mix when albums such as this, ostensibly a gathering of most of the Clan's members (the tracklisting doesn't feature GZA or Masta Killa), arrive but probably can't be included in their full album-proper discography.

Whether it can or can't be counted as their sixth LP, thanks to the majority showing and the natural excellence of many of their contributions, Legendary Weapons is very much a positive sign. They remain vigorously dedicated to aggressive, loopy imagery and have relaxed into a sound dominated by soul beats and samples - the point being that they all sound extremely comfortable with their default settings. In no way is this a bad thing, because it's allowed their natural colours to show more than they have in some years.

Even Method Man's contented observations regarding his morning routine on Diesel Fluid ("Bowl of cereal, cartoons on / My favourite s*** is the Smurfs,") are pleasingly mundane. Guest appearances fly past at quite a lick, from Sean Price of Random Axe to Wu apprentice Trife Diesel and several others, but they are mostly eclipsed by the more recognisable personalities. Ghostface Killah, as usual, delivers the most spirited rhymes throughout. He completely dominates the first half of The Black Diamonds with his talk of spy antics over Satie-esque suspended piano chords, leaving you (in his words) slumped dead on a chessboard and left to be discovered by a park ranger. The Clan's gift for surrealism is, thankfully, undiminished.

Crucially, this is a direct work. No tarrying over ponderous moral dilemmas, no emotional accounts of deaths in the slums, just an exceptionally entertaining box of delights. They sound lean, experienced and relaxed, their lyrics still dusted with grit and recorded with spit on the mic, but possessive of a curious, comfortable maturity. Even if this is merely the set that fills a gap until the rumoured sixth album proper arrives in 2012, it's safe to say the Clan are definitely back at the front amongst their peers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Suuuuuuu 6 Sep 2011
Format:Audio CD
Wu are back with a banger. Although not all members feature (most noticeably for me GZA) this album is good. Sharp production with some great Kung-Fu samples and on point lyrics from the artists on the album, It is well worth the money if you are a 'Wu Head' . .

GFK is the most energetic on the album and really makes the album!

3.0 out of 5 stars Clan in the front! 27 July 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
No GZA or Masta Killa? If you get past the fact that this is not a true Wu-Tang studio album but a compilation then your in store for some of Shaolins finest lyrical spitters putting work in to a very exacting standard. Its a must have for die hard fans. As well as top quality bars and production there are some lack lustre tracks in here, but all in all i think most who 'cop' this one, won't be crest-fallen! Honorable mentions are Ghostface Killah & Raekwon.. these two cats under pin this whole album.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 9 Aug 2011
By Edduk
Format:Audio CD
As an avid follower of the WU since 93 I am deeply disappointed with this instalment. The main reason is the missing members. Not having the GZA on there is like having the Rolling Stones with no Jagger!

The Album itself opens really well. (although Ive never been a big fan of MOP) and the second track is reminiscent of the old with the booming bass line and the wu samples. This had my head nodding with a smile on my face! But then the album sinks slowly back into mediocrity with a few hints of RZA magic to keep you wondering what could have been. Ive still live in hope that they'll revive their former glory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Legendary Weapons 11 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Legendary Weapons was a gift for a Wu-Tang fan. It is a matter of some concern however that Amazon have failed to provide a refund for a faulty Samsung laptop which was returned to A&S Media.
