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.
