U-God has his own unique off kilter style, much like the rest of the Wu. To those unaware of his more substantial work, I would say he is like a hybrid of GZA and ODB, but that does not do him justice because he is his own MC. This is one of the best CDs of
all time, and if the whole album was like the second half (starting at track 8, Pleasure or Pain) is would probably BE the best CD of all time. And yes, there are more songs, they didn't list them all, but there are 15 tracks on this CD and almost everyone of them coulda been a hit single with right publicity.
U-God has come a long way from being Baby Huey and practically a guest appearance on Wu jauns. U-God now is without a doubt one of the most underrated MCs of all time. The first time I heard him on "Da Mystery of Chessboxin'" way back in 94, when his was
the first verse in the first Wu-banga, I was blown away. But I never really thought he would be able to hold his own. Then after doing his thing on a bunch of other guest spots and on Triumph, when Cherchez La Ghost came out, I was re-blown away. I was now fully convinced that U-God could come correct, and this album is spectacular!
He is one of the better "from the gutter" MCs, kinda like how DMX coulda been if he hadn't sold out. His song "Hungry" is very moving, but not in like a pansy way, but I could feel his pain. "I'm out here fightin'/ cold and hungry/ fish ain't biting/ life's so frightening/ I'm damn near dumping/ cold and crumbling/ nothing's hatching/ now I'm packing".
The best song here, and one of my top twenty songs of all time, "Pleasure or Pain" is U-God and Hell Razah just straight rhyming, but within a theme, that again, is very... emotional. It is like a social commentary of sorts, kinda like...

5.0 out of 5 stars Golden Arms shows that Midas touch ... Aug. 16 2000
Format:Audio CD
If you are the sort of hip-hop head who allows their opinions to be formed by the music press, then the chances are that you may have overlooked this on the strength of recent 'tepid' Wu-tang offerings. The truth, however, is that the direction that the Clan are now moving in displays a developed maturity whilst still retaining the skills for which they were originally acclaimed for. An album should not be measured against previous releases but appraised on its own merits - remember, we live in an ever-changing world....
This album is simply awe-inspiring. For fiteen tracks, across sixty-three minutes, you are invited into a world of startling lyrical dexterity and hypnotic production. As arguably one of the lesser known members of the Wu-tang Clan, U-God may be a name baulked at by heads who find their pleasure in weak rhymes about nothing more than fast cars, faster women and fictional tales of killing in the hood. However, this delivers a swift right hook to any hip-'pop'pers with the sheer poetry of its lyricism. His excellent use of poetic imagery set against masterful production by the Rza, Tru Master and 4th Disciple (Rza's 'apprentices') creates an almost perfect marriage. The atmosphere created in tracks like Lay Down and Pleasure and Pain are unrivalled, and you are of course treated to the usual Wu-cameos from Method Man, Inspectah Deck and Raekwon (not to mention some dangerously sharp lyrics from Leatha Face and Hell Razah).
This album has everything - the head-nodding battle raps, the cathartic soul-baring tracks, the enchanting anecdotal tune ... invest and you will not be disappointed. The one message that this album conveys clearly is - the Wu have still got it! We await, with baited breath, the next Clan album.

Okay, Moms constantly reminds me to say nothing when a lack of good things to say is evident... But U God really hurt me with this paltry effort. I always perceived golden arms as the deep brother who dared not spit inspirations unless it was something powerful and worth saying. On this album however, I was turned off by the second song...the beats are at best throw aways or should have been saved for someone else, and the singing could have been left to Ol' dirty...
Anyway my real complaint is the lack of even one reasonable hook...Each song's refrain is just ridiculous and lacking in all respects--as a matter of fact I was feeling a couple of tracks until these weak refrains pervaded my speakers.
This album ranks below The Pillage--a virtually impossible feat, but then again the Wu never ceases to amaze me...I was surprised to see positive reviews and decided to give this album two more listens....
it didn't help a thing....
anyway I hate to keep it real when reality bites, but i would hate to have someone's perception of Wu Solo projects skewed by the utter shortcoming of one member...
Hate to be harsh, but i hate to waste money on sauce(utter lack of substance/meat) even more...
and you definitely heard that from me...

3.0 out of 5 stars Enter U-God Feb. 23 2000
Format:Audio CD
Recently I just picked up Ghostface Killah's, Inspectah Deck's, and U-god's new CDs, while I had the new GZA's, ODBs, and Meth/Redman's CD. I haven't check out Raekwon's let. Just sticking to Clan official members, since Wu's Forever, only RZA's and Meth's "T2000" were below average. All of the recent Wu releases were hot, which leads us to this one. I would've given this 3.5 stars, but I can't. U-god is really an unknown clan member till this solo. Whlie this Cd covers a darker side of the Wu, its still hot! "Bizarre" has got to be one of the tightest Wu solo songs since "All I got is You" Meth/Mary J. Blige. Other tight songs are "Turbulence", Soul Dazzle", "Lay Down", and "Hungry". Only one song is weak and the rest are average enough to listen once in awhile. This CD will defiantly be over looked by Wu's and non-Wu's. Thats unforunate for tru Wu's cuz this Cd is better than one would think.
