this album is one of the classic albums of time. ask any hip-hop head, ask any rap head, ask anybody. wu-tang's "Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers" is ill beyond recognition. very few albums have come close to this album. the lyrics and the flows are perfect. it is completely what New York/East Coast rap is all about, rugged, rough, raw, and dirty. this album is so grimey, it's so raw, unstudio-fied. the sound and quality of this album is what true hip-hop should sound like. there is no quality remasterings and that's the way we like it. wu's wordplay on this album is truely a work of art, they truly were hungry, VERY hungry. their singles "C.R.E.A.M." and "Portect Ya Neck" aren't commercially sugarcoated either. "Protect Ya Neck" is one ill single with excellent flow by the W. another song to shine a light on is "Da Mystery of Chessboxin'" every hip hop head, or anyon trying to get into hip hop has to listen to this album. it is grimey sounding as far quality comes, vocally, lyrically. this is an unpolished, diamond-in-the-dirt classic wu album. it's album like this that made hip-hop cross over to suburban areas and spread across America like the AIDs epidemic.
