Product Description

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

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Album April 29 2004
Format:Audio CD
Not to be a down my man who wrote the "biography" of Wu, but Wu-Tang Forever came out early in 1997, not 98. It's only a year difference but it's important because after this is when Hip Hop came completely under Puffy's dominance with the death of Biggie. It is an essential year in Hip Hop. But Wu-Tang did not step back, the world did. However, many true admirers still followed their careers with the 98 release of "Tical 2000", Inspectah Deck's "Uncontrolled Substance", Wu affiliate Killah Priest's lyrically groundbreaking "Heavy Mental", Gza's 1999 "Beneath the Surface" and the infamous "Supreme Clientele". Immobilarity was just a little off, though it was ok. But there were plenty of ill Wu releases other than that.

4.0 out of 5 stars The birth of Pretty Toney April 21 2004
Format:Audio CD
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!!!!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars This album is WEAK for Face April 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
What's the deal? Today his new Pretty Toney hit the stores, and I don't even know if I'm gonna get that cause Wallets was just plain JUNK. I mean honestly, how could you go from a classic like Supreme to Wallets? Not to diss on those of you who like this album, but hearing Ironman many a moon ago and then progressing, or should I say declining to this is just unacceptable for one of Wu's best lyricists. But, many of the other members of Wu have done the same. I hope to expect more from Ghost, but who knows. If you have ANY respect for the Wu, skip Wallets and bump Ironman or Supreme.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lets' Seperate The Wall From The Paint March 15 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Most solid, most lyrics, most flows since Supreme Clientele. When the whole Nas V JayZ thing was running it's course and all the recent converts thought stillmatic was Nas' best work to date, I was listening to the MC who nobody seems to want to mention on wax 'Ghost Deni'. Now I come from a time when you respond to what you hear on tape: beats, word play, new ideas you know, Hip-Hop. This album, along with all the 'Iron bars' Ghost has been killing them with since Cuban Linx, seperates the Killa from the pop idols. King of New York, how ya gonna be that, when Ghost still Supreme and ever Bullet Proof? Jigga who?

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm disappointed a little bit. 3.5 STAR Oct. 15 2003
By TKitO
Format:Audio CD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beginners guide!!!! May 25 2003
By Titch
Format:Audio CD
wot can i say 'bout this album.
well for a start when has Ghostface killah ever failed to bring out an album which hasn't amazed everyone(including the critics!)
and this album is no exception. The beats are still raw and the lyrics are still out of this world, with a little bit of lighter 80's melody which adds a new and improved side to gfk's work. Songs like "maxine" and "flowers"(with the usual wu members) opitimise the album, and with Raekwon onboard to add that true wu flava this album won't fail to live up to expectations yet again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Remember what I said about Ghostface before....4get it.
If any of you read my review of Clue's album, note I said Ghostface was wack. I've changed my opinion and now I think he's one of the best in this game today.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ghostface bringing a new Wu vibe for fans...
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. Read more
