Product Description

After two albums as Bobby Digital, RZA finally releases an album as… RZA. Although those hoping to hear his signature Wu-Tang soul style may come away disappointed, the man's mastery over dissonance continues. Tracks like "The Whistle" and "The Grunge" scrape fingernails on the chalkboard, but make it sound funky. Guest producers like Tru Masta and Choco help shoulder the load with some beats that sound like vintage RZA (such as Tru Masta's "Fast Cars") and others that take him in new directions. Lyrically, RZA gets even grittier than he did in his Bobby D days, spitting rusty-nail rhymes about his thug past, blasting shotguns, and swinging his Shaolin sword. As he twists your mind on the mellowing "A Day to God Is 1000 Years" and masters his lyrical martial arts on "Chi Kung," RZA reminds us that he's not just the Wu's scientist of sound, but he's also one of the crew's forgotten MC talents. --Oliver Wang

Reading the other reviews made me write this. All of the bad reviews I read were by people who can't understand this album. A Day to God is 1,000 Years, See the Joy, Birth are three songs that I'm sure went over a lot of people's heads. Just because you can't understand it doesn't mean it isn't good. There are some bad/negative songs to me, but those songs are there because this was a concept album about the duality of man (as is the whole idea of Bobby Digital). Rza is showing his before and after achieving knowledge of self (hence the skit with his enlighetner handing him the 120 lessons). I would buy this album again if I lost it, for the simple fact that there are songs on this album that will help you gain a little bit of understanding about life. Rza is an extremely wise man (read the Tao of Wu). I think that the ignorance of a lot of hip hop fans is the reason why he couldn't release an album of completely righteous content. If you sat this man down at a table with ANY other rapper, he could make them look like a fool. Support him.

You want ur 38th chambers back
here's the deal
1. stop buying all wu tang releases,YES I MEAN ALL, whether is new or old,good or bad and any wu- tang related, because i got a feeling they are not gonna coming back with a good one, if we asked them to make a good record, they will tell us to buy they old record. i think they just lazy,today they just wanna make money, not a record, let them know without a NEW GREAT record, there isno fan will gonna buy they albums. it means no money, they think they can playin us for keep buying their albums while their tryin to please britney's fan if they up and coming album is not a WU -TANG album that we know ( kung fu sample,
dominated rza's beats, none other than wu-tang families "in house" guest) DO NOT BUY IT !!!
2. Do not buy their clothes, shoes or any product related to them.
3. Do not visit their site, if you had a fanzine dedicated to them, you know what to do DISACTIVE IT !!

4. Stop requesting their song on the radio, tell the radio dj to not playing their song,and if you hear one of their song being played in the club tell the dj too shut it off.
5. If you feel unlucky buy their recent albums (lex diamond story, the movement, tical prequel, the birth of prince) you all can gather with other feel unlucky wu-tang fan, to collect all albums that i already mentioned, and burn it all into dust, tape this action and put it on the internet or the picture on underground paper(school, campus or whatever).
6. Please spread this message.

Me and all my friend in Indonesia (we all wu-tang fans) already starts this movement,let them know that we which is their fans, HATE their new direction. We gonna run this ban until their give us their truest form.

I am a confirmed alternative music addict. Recently i have checked into the flow and feel of the hip hop universe. RZA was the first stop on my journey. His production is truly one of a kind.
I bought RZA's latest work wich happened to be this cd. My favorite track on this disc is "Chi Kung": Real mellow samurai sound. I also think that "the Grunge" kicks, with the synths going off scale, creating great disharmonic gnarly grooves.
"Fast Cars" is rocking. "Bob N' I" is chill. "We pop" is a hit. And "the Whistle" is a real ride along song (im a snowboarder).
First half of the album delivers the grooves. The other half is misssing the touch (except "Koto Chotan"). I should really liked to hear RZA's personal sound all the way trough the album.
I won't give it a hi5. But it truly have some good beats.
Re edit: After Ive listened to the disc a while I think "The Birth" & "You`ll Never Know" are the best tracks. They carry out the RZA wisdom as he call it. But I agree with Eric R. that this disc has some really annoying tracks. Spesially "The Drop Off" & "Cherry Range".

According to legend RZA's actual solo debut as RZA is supposed to be entitled "The Cure" his masterpiece, which this piece obviously is not in both name and content. He didn't change the title of it, he still references "The Cure" in the linear notes but this isn't a Bobby Digital release either although the opening track makes reference to him, this release I see takes it's name from what RZA went by in his early years before the Wu-Tang Clan came into effect, which was Prince Rakeem. He released one EP "Ooh We Love You Rakeem" on Tommy Boy in 1991 and after that he dropped that moniker in favour of RZA and then Bob Digi. This is that characters "rzarection" if you will. As an album it's self I expected a lot more from a producer that is held up in the ranks of Pete Rock, Dj Premier & Dr. Dre in the realm of ability and influence. This album has it's real gems but it also has it's real lumps of garbage. Some of the beats seemed to be lacking that little extra something that a genius like RZA should be the one adding in. The guests bar a few get pretty dull and uninspired. But and there's a but when the beats are well crafted and RZA gets back to his introspective though provoking lyrics and Shaolin style and things just click it's some of the best music out there. Unfortunately that doesn't happen quite enough on this album. Now I'll shed light on a few tracks...
We Pop ft/ Ol' Dirty Bastard ~ For a post 2000 Wu solo album this one keeps the Wu sound pretty good but this track just disrupts the flow completely it's past different and interesting and gets into "out of place" territory.
