A lot has changed since Ghostface Killah first entered the fold as Wu-Tang Clan's masked lyricist. Let's be real, there was a time, somewhere between Wu's debut "Protect Ya Neck" single and the video for "Can It Be All So Simple," when Ghostface was not considered one of the Staten Island crew's better rappers. Eleven years and dozens of albums later, from original members and affiliates, Tony Starks is doing the most thorough job of holding the Clan's dimming torch. Besides the RZA's movie scoring (Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2), other high profile members like Method Man and the ever inebriated, whether literally or figuratively, Dirt McGirt haven't exactly kept the Wu-Tang prominent. With his long awaited, much hyped and outstanding fourth album, The Pretty Toney Album, Ghost Deini (nee Dennis Coles) proves he has the persona, vision and flair to keep the Wu alive, all by his lonesome.
With his dinner plate sized neckwear and ever freshly dipped clothing catalog, Mr. Starks is a living relic of year '88, Golden Era hip-hop ingenuity. But thankfully, he manages to embody the era's creative vacuum without sounding out of touch with making music that bangs. Hip-hop professors will note the drums from "Make the Music With Your Mouth Biz" on "Save Me Dear" (produced by Ghost himself) giving the tracks juiced soul vocals even more potency to bolster high charged verses about devotion between man and woman. On "Last Night (Skit)" he raids the Ultimate Breaks and Beats catalog to spit splendid, but oh so misogynistic, sex talk over Esther Williams' "Last Night Save It All.

oh gosh, make no mistake...this album is ridiculous! ghostface has taken it back to that soul, that gritty street passion that's missing from a lot of hip hop today. it's by no means trying to be old skool though, like some undergound rappers try but fail to achieve. this album takes elements from good music from all era's and sounds absolutely fresh.
the production is some of the best i've heard in a long time, with the dusty beats coming from many angles. it has a strong 70's/80's soul sound which works perfect with ghost's attitude and humour, and his rhymes stay on point. as usual he gets his singing on aswell as rapping..with plenty of nice hooks you'll be singing along with soon after hearing!
the album plays perfectly, this ain't a collection of singles with a few fillers thrown in.
ghost is an artist is rate highly as he's been consistant and original from the word go.
his album from a few years back 'supreme clientele' is a personal favourite of mine, and his debut 'iron man' is an undisputed classic! his third intallment 'bullet proof wallets' has mixed reviews,personally i was feeling it.
this album is up there alongside supreme clientele as my favourite ghostface album, and i'm pretty sure it'll be up there with my favourite albums (period!) in the future.
i suggest if you like hip hop, soul, and music at all you buy this cd, support the real!
any die hard wu tang fans who may be put off by the lack of appearances from members..don't be! jadakiss, styles, sheek louch, musiq soulchild, plus a few more feature..and it works perfect.

i thought this was good but honestly, its not as good as cuban linx, iron man or supreme clientele so get them first cos their bangin. if you already have these then this is a better choice than bulletproof wallets(which isnt worth hearin except for a couple cuts) and has 4 or 5 songs that are truly classic songs.

on april 26 i bought 2 albums, both released on that day, those albumswere D12 World and The Pretty Toney Album. when i listened to them boththere was no way that i expected Ghostface's album to be better thanD12's, but i was wrong. The Pretty Toney Album is an extremely uniquesounding album, fusing 70's soul with hardcore rap flows, to greatsuccess. the standout track is probably Run featuring Jadakiss, this songhowever doesnt really fit in with the rest of the album so if you'reexpecting classic RZA production for the whole album you should prepareyourself for a totally different sound.
The Pretty Toney Album is afantastic album which more that compares to Supreme Clientele and isdefinatly worth a purchase.

....this album is not all it's cracked up to be.
Don't get me wrong, I like some of the track. But on the whole, i'm reallynot feeling this album.
Ghostface, and the production, just don't seem to go hand in hand verywell. His flow just doesn't seem to fit in with the beats at all.
It's not a BAD album, just very average. Out of the 18 tracks or so, Ilike probably about 4, maybe 5. A few aren't too bad, and the rest arejust bad.
If you REALLY are in to Ghostface (which I am) then you'll wanna pick itup anyway. But don't expect much, and you may be pleasantly surprised.
