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

This album is deep. its not what you might have been expecting after 36 chambers, but if u judge it on it's on merits rather than comparing it with previous work, you'll realise that this is a classic. first off it is a deep album. this is probable it's biggest flaw (commercially)- it's full of deep, meaningful lyrics, which unfortunatley these days seem to take the back foot to guns, money, ice, and hoes. in the word's of ghostface (slightly edited so this review will actually get published): ''All we gonna do is just keep doin' what we do best. We know one thing - that there is more dumb people than smart people, so when we bring Wu-tang Forever and we preach to people, nobody want to hear that stuff. It's like I'm tryin' give you knowledge and teach you and tell you to do somethin' right, you don't want to hear that. Forever was like college - we stepped our rhymes up. People didn't want to hear that though. So now we know like: hold on, nah, that's too strong for 'em.' Can't feed a baby steak: can't digest it, he can't even chew it; he ain't gonna want it.''
i think that little paragraph sums it up really well. it was a deep album, but alot of it just flew over people's heads, so it didnt get the respect it deserves. to this day i dont know how professional reviewers allowed this to get past them without appreciating it, but maybe it was too deep for most of them too. im not gonna break down the LP track-by-track as the last guy did that. although i will point out that 'a better tomorrow' is one of the greatest songs of all time, and 'impossible' contains 2 of the best verses i've ever heard.
all i can really say is buy this album and judge it for your self, but give it a few listens before u pass judgement, as it can take a fair few listens to understand some of the lyrics, and a few of the tunes have to grow on you.
but in conclusion this is a true master piece, and for little more than a tenner you can't go wrong. BUY IT!!!!

The Only ther Wu Tang Album that I've written a review on is the Gza's 'Liquid Swords'. This has '5 star' reviews to burn (including mine), whereas this has only one review, and that review doesn't even begin to enunciate the merits of this album.

Whereas L-Swds is an artistically deep album, with the Gza's use of lyrics, and the Rza's beats transcending just about everything else that has ever happened in hip-hop, artistically, supported by the sheer life experience and world significant seriousness, contained in Gza's wittily delivered lines, WuTang Forever, is more direct, more mainstream, designed to sell more records in a way BUT, it's message is clearer than that of L Swds.

This is a really postive Hip Hop album (in a very non Fresh 'never hustled a day in his life' Prince & Jazzy Jeff kinds way) which tells, principally the black and the downtrodden in society that they should work to turn their lives around. This message is coming from people who came from the bottom of the gutter, and the emotion contained in songs like 'Projects' is palpable (in the housing, thousands seen early graves, Victims of world ways......).

After albums that glorify guns, violence, crime, mysoginy this is where the mature successful hip-hop artist is supposed to take things.

A really special piece of work, especially because it's not an impenetrable as LSwds (which I absolutely love), so this great message reaches a lot of people.

I first heard this album back in 1997 when it was already over 4years old. I was amazed at how fresh it sounded. Its raw origin (shaolin) style set a whole new standard to which subsequent ablums are marked against, it heralded a revolution in rap and started a new era that has had a far futher reaching audience than ever before.
