Product Description

Product Description

Ghostface Killah ~ Bulletproof Wallets

Amazon.ca

As the only Wu-Tang MC (outside of the GZA) to not record a lackluster solo release, Ghosface's third album comes with sky-high expectations. Ghostface continues to flow out of a sense of urgency, his cadence dripping with emotion on hot RZA-produced numbers like "Maxine." Ghost's exceptional storytelling abilities are intact; on "Never Be the Same" he confronts a former lover with Carl Thomas crooning on the hook. Likewise, on the awesome Alchemist-produced "The Forest" he builds a rhyme around popular fairy-tale characters. While sloppy hooks plague tracks like "Theodore" and "The Jucks" (pop your collar, huh?), it's the inane interlude skits and wildly uneven production that bogs down this release. By album's end you get the vintage Wu sound on "The Hilton"--grimy beats matched by Ghost's intense flow--and "Street Chemistry" boasts a remarkable piano loop mixed in with a sampled female voice, but it all comes a little too late. --Dalton Higgins

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!!!!!!!

This is the first album I got from Ghostface!
personally, I'm not a Ghostface Killah Fans, My Favorite from Wu Tang should be Method and Raekwon!
but I still decide to get Supreme Clientele, but have a chance make me got this one!
Before I purchase this one, I know it's not his best album, not as good as Supreme Clientele. and I'm not gonna get this before I got Supreme Clientele, but that day I walk to the local shop, they are on crazy sale and this one is 35% off, so I get this one Immediately!
ok, the first thing piss me off is Epic Record make a mistake with the track list, some song order is DEAD wrong and the song "The Sun" which said featuring Raekwon, Rza and MIGHTY SLICK RICK is MISSIN'!!!
It's really Fxxked up!
How can a BIG record label do this mistake?
Anyway, actually it doesn't "really" matta!
I just focus on the music!
Never got other Ghost stuff, so I can't compare,
but this one have many beat that sound too Pop and Commercial!
I don't know it's good or not!
overall, the beat/music is alright!
This album contain 16 songs but 5 is skit, so I got 11 real songs which is kinda short I think!
some of my favorite track is Maxine, Flowers, Theodore, Ghost Shower, Love Session.
Never Be The Same Again is sounds very great too!
but the beat/music is in the vein of "Just The Two of Us" or some old Michael Jackson sh*t!
Which is really Commercial, I never expect that I will here this kind of stuff from Ghostface!
Overall, a good album but the run time is not enough and sounds too commercial sometime which make this album easy to played-out. [I think I'll loss interest to listen to this album after hear the whole thing 3 times!]
I'm disappointed a bit! I never expect that it will disappionted me! This one is not for me!

This album is a big disapointment. Everyone that I know that bought this the day it came out, either gave it away or it's sitting on the shelf collecting dust. The bootleg and the store version are like night and day. The bootleg has bangin beats by the mulititudes. There's even a sticker on the store version of Bulletproof that says there's a song on here with Slick Rick and The RZA. That song obviously got pulled at the last minute because it's nowhere to be found. The cheesey "Ghostshower" is a bum attempt at re-creating "Cher Chez La Ghost" and they fail miserabley. Who the hell would give this album 4 or more stars. Do you give everything a 4 or a 5??? Be subjective with the criticism. If you're familiar with the authentic Wu-Tang sound or a real head, I know you're feeling me here. Bulletproof shouldn't even be mentioned in the same sentence as Ironman or Supreme Clientelle. However they're are a few standouts such as "The Forest" where ghost talks about an entertaining voyage with almost every cartoon charecter in history, and the bangin "Strawberry" which is just crazy ( but only 2 minutes long). Get the album if you collect every Wu-Tang album. But if you, like me loved GFK's 2 previous albums. This one dosen't cut it.

I was a little surprised after listening to this album for the first time. It is a somewhat different style than past Wu-Tang albums, such as 36 Chambers and Ironman. However, it is a good album. Ghostface came through with the best Wu-Tang album in awhile with Supreme Clientele. This takes the hints seen in that album a little further, as Ghostface seems to be expanding his style.
In "Maxine" GFK rocks a RZA beat to a song that takes right off of Supreme Clientele's momentum. "Flowers" is a smooth, cool-out beat featuring Raekwon. Interesting beat for RZA. "Never Be the Same Again" is a good song, however for old school Wu-Tang fans this isn't what they're used to. One where GFK is expanding his reportoire. "Ghost Showers" resembles "CherChez LaGhost", however I like this one a lot more as I wasn't really feeling "CherChez LaGhost". "Strawberry" has a catchy beat and is a solid song. "The Forest" is the worst song on the album and should have been left off. It's a weak attempt to match Ice Cube's "A Gangsta's Fairytale". The beat by Alchemist is horrible and lyrically GFK slacks off. On "The Juks" Alchemist gives GFK a mediocre beat and the hook is horrible. "Walking Through The Darkness" sees GFK with a nice uptempo beat. This is a real good song. "The Hilton" featuring Raekwon is an awesome song. This is the type of song that GFK really shows off his skills. "Street Chemistry" is another great GFK song, unfortunately it is only 2 minutes long.
All in all this album is pretty good. However as his third album, it's his third best. The production wavers at times, leaving the listener wondering when the RZA will start producing entire albums again like when he did on classics like "Ironman", "Only Built 4 Cuban Linx", and "Liquid Swords".
