Product Description

Back in again very soon for the first time in ages!!. Sony Music and Get On Down proudly present the official reissue of the debut solo album from Wu-Tang Clans's Ghostface Killah. Released in 1996 on Epic Records, Ironman earned immediate mainstream success, debuting at number two on the Billboard 200 chart, and number one on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Though a solo album, Ironman is filled with Wu-Tang collabos, prominently featuring Raekwon and Cappadonna, with a handful of tracks featuring Ghost performing companionless. The album earned gold status in sales a year after its release and platinum by 2004, a true testament to its staying power. Ironman pieces together Al Green and Jackson 5 samples, gospel choruses, kung fu soundbites and piano vamps into something unpredictable and vital-sounding. Arguably the best of the group's solo albums to date, the record is filled with inventive production and rhymes, and ranks as another solid entry in the Wu-Tang legacy. Housed in a full-color gatefold jacket, this special double vinyl edition is a classic piece of Wu-Tang artistry, reborn again for music lovers and MC's alike. Side One A1. Iron Maiden A2. Wildflower A3. The Faster Blade A4. 260 Side Two B1. Assassination Day B2. Poisonous Darts B3. Winter Warz B4. Box In Hand Side Three C1. Fish C2. Camay C3. Daytona 500 C4. Motherless Child Side Four D1. Black Jesus D2. After The Smoke Is Clear D3. All That I Got Is You D4. The Soul Controller

I bought this album with the expectations of hard non commercial beats with some off the wall lyrically dexterious rhymes ,and i wasn't disappointed. The album starts off in a typical wu-tang style with a film sample off of an old gangster film and then almost slyly (for a wu-tang album) comes the beat for the first track Iron maiden.The rest of the album really continues in this style with some comic interludes and some frank rhymes about life on the streets. The production from the RZA is slick as usual,but for me the album falls below the standard set by the GZA on his hip-hop classic Liquid swords. This is still not an album to be taken lightly and dismissed,it is well worth a listen,stand out tracks are Fish and Daytona 500

Dennis Coles aka Ghostface Killah was the fifth member of the Wu to release a solo LP, 'Ironman' arriving after Genius, Raekwon, Method Man and ODB had all cut their teeth on solo projects. The previous four albums had all been declared classics upon release by fans; 'Ironman' had a lot to live up to. It did not disappoint one bit.
Like every other early Wu solo album, it is at times a group effort. In fact, Raekwon and Cappadonna are giving second billing on the album. This trio works to best effect on the club favourite 'Daytona 500'. On it, Rza drags the listener into his chamber of innovation. The track grabs a heavy sample of Bob James' seminal funk track 'Nautilus' and couples it with some outrageous scratching. Method Man delivers a typically nonchalant verse on 'Box In Hand'. Meanwhile, Raekwon and Cappadonna reappear on 'Camay' to play sweet-talking suitors along with Ghostface.
Certainly the LP is best known for containing Ghostface's most commercial track so far, 'All That I Got Is You'. It's almost the perfect blueprint for a commercially successful hip hop track. Combining a guest spot from Mary J Blige with a heavy sample of 'Maybe Tomorrow' by the Jackson 5, the track tells the story of Ghostface's deprived childhood. "Fifteen of us in a 3 bedroom apartment / Roaches everywhere, cousins, Aunts was there / Four in the bed, two at the foot, two at the head / I didn't like to sleep with John John he peed the bed." It's a heartbreaking track. Rappers seldom manage to get tearjerkers right, but Ghostface manages it without breaking a sweat.
Credit must go to Rza for some innovative production. Rza, in his trademark style, takes sparse percussion and bass thuds and marries them to lush orchestration, baroque riffs and 1960s soul samples.

Excellent album by an artist who is constantly thrilling.... Check out his new one, that he recorded with Jazz Trio 'BADBADNOTGOOD', also..... I always enjoy his stuff... Think he's a major talent....

This is a classic album from start to finish the beats are like you've never heard although Liquid swords is a heavy album this has heavy bass tracks like BOX IN HAND & BLACK JESUS, POISONOUS DARTS, WINTER WARZ which cappadonna's verse full of lyrical technique will have you reciting every word. I think alot of people spend too much time comparing the Wu tang artists against each other when you realise they have their own styles especially Ghostface has a faster rapping approach compared to Gza GFK has one of the illest rhymes on ONLY BUILT 4 CUBAN LINX on WU GAMBINOS but the ironman album should be considered a class album one of Ghost's best.

Ghostface may not be the best known member of the clan but he proves himself to be a tight mc in this excellent album. All the sounds are fresh and the album as a whole is very ill.

Ghostface Killah's first solo release is not his best, there are some okay tracks produced by the RZA and mainly Raekwon and Cappadonna feature, but a lot of the album is drivel and listening to it now it sounds amateurish and definitely from 1996 where U.S hip hop was at it's peak.

Since the release of his brilliant sophomore effort "Supreme Clientele" in 2000, it's been clear that Wu-Tang Clan member Ghostface Killah has loads of potential in store for a flourishing solo career. In fact, he already made heads aware of his very own talent in 1996, when he published his first solo album "Ironman". The formula employed on the latter record is similar to the one Tony Starks uses on "Supreme Clientele": crazy picturesque songs made up of unexpected, if not weird, samples ("Daytona 500", "Black Jesus") and at first undecipherable lyrics which can nevertheless be rather simple and masterfully on point, like on the murderous "Wildflower" or on the moving "All I Got is You". Both previous elements combine to a movie-like musical score, for which Wu-architect The RZA mostly provides the beats and fellow Clan-members join Ghostface on the mic to achieve a record as colourful as a bag of multiple sweets. Let it melt in your mouth - er, ear.

this album ranges from the awesome, with tracks like Winter Warz and Assasination Day, to the not so good, like Wildflower.
It doesn't touch 36 Chambers or The W, but is good in its own right. With guest appearances from M.E.T.H.O.D Man and Raekwon, he has pulled in all the big guns from Wu Tang. Definately not the best album around, but still worth chacking out if you like Wu Tang. There are some phat beats on this, especially on Assasination Day, and slick production throughout. Recommended if you want some ill raps.
