Ghostface does it again with this release, the largely slept on, but still excellent, Bulletproof Wallets. This album is a great album to listen to, as Ghostface is still on top of his game and continued to prove he's the most consistant of all the Wu members. The first time I played this album, I brushed it off to the side for A LITTLE while, but time and perspective have been so kind to me and this album. Here's the review:
Album Highlights: Everything here KNOCKS(which is usual for a Ghostface album, but the highlights are Maxine, Flowers, The Juks, Street Chemistry, Ghost Showers, The Forest, and The Hilton.
Production: Thumbs up. I don't know who was responsible, but whoever made the beat for "Street Chemistry" deserves their due. That beat is ILL.
Lyrics and Subject Matter: Thumbs up. Ghostface even goes on the storytelling route this time around, check out the song "The Forest."
Originality: Thumbs up.
The Last Word: Despite being slept on, this album is still a must have for LONG TIME Wu and Ghostface fans. He truly delivered on this album, and it shows. You might not know what he's talking about some of the time, but his flow and everything else in between makes up for it, and you can't ask for much more than that. I strongly recommend this album, and now I'm out to cop The Pretty Toney Album!!!!!!!
