Product Description


Bouncing back from the deplorably mediocre Beneath the Surface, GZA reasserts his position at the head of the Wu-Tang corpus. The most obvious improvement is in the production, masterminded by various Wu-Tang acolytes of RZA's dissonant funkalistics. Beats are kept simple--one- and two-bar loops sampled from across the musical spectrum--but despite their austerity, they're impressively efficient sonic packages that complement GZA's own powerfully compact lyrical style. The self-proclaimed "ill rhyme kicker / with no parental sticker" rolls with almost nonstop braggadocio on the album, flashing his virtuosity with metaphorically inspired songs like "Fame" and "Animal Planet" and wordplay parties such as "Knock, Knock" and "Sparring Minds." The album's main liability is that it's consistent to a fault. The 15 tracks begin to sound like variations on one another and, despite the individual qualities of any given song, the overall album begins to get monotonous halfway through. --Oliver Wang

1.0 out of 5 stars Does not deserve to be called "legend" Jan. 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is not classic GZA. This is not GZA at his best either.
The one star that is given is for the one track that is o.k. This CD sounded too mainstream compared to previous GZA work. I don't want to say that you have lost your touch, but come on Genius! I know you can do better. Liquid Swords was a hard act to follow, but you did it with Beneath the Surface. And now this?
What is this? It sounds like each song was done in 2 minutes flat! I sorry but this album doesn't deserve to have the word "legend" in it. I was waiting for this CD to come out and I was disapointed. No thumbs-up for this one. Save youself the anguish and get a copy of "Fresh Mode" by Ugly Duckling

4.0 out of 5 stars This CD is Nice Dec 3 2003
Format:Audio CD
Pretty much the only flaw this CD has in my opinion, which is the same complaint that most of the people criticize this album for is the editing of some tracks. If not for that, this CD would get 5 stars. This album is obviously not as good as Liquid Swords and is better than Beneath the Surface (which is still in my mind a solid album). This album brings back some grimy beats with exceptional lyrics, which is nothing more than expected from GZA. The best lyricist in the Clan other than, dare I say Masta Killa. Best tracks on this piece are Auto Bio, Animal Planet, Fam(despite being edited), Fame, Highway Robbery(chorus does not fit song, ill other than that) Silent, Sparring Minds, Stay In Line, and What You Know About. Pick this up if you want some real Hip Hop, not any of that 50 Cent/G-Unit garbage. Must buy for any Wu fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Legend Continues Sept. 28 2003
By Matt
Format:Audio CD
Since GZAs groundbreaking hip hop classic 'Liquid Swords' Genius has continued to shine as one of the prominent Wu mcs. 'Beneath The Surface' continued his legacy, and his latest offering continues to build the legend. The production on this album is very classy, reflecting the GZAs continuity and his constant improvement. His rhymes fit in with the beats, and the standout track 'Fame' is an amazing use of wordplay referencing to various stars most would recognise, much in the same way as his track 'labels' did on liquid swords. Not alot can be said about the GZA as it has all been said before but this MC is paving the way as far as progression is concerned. Also peep the track 'Sparring Minds' featuring Inspectah Deck, whose verse is one of the albums highlights. A mandatory purchase, and if all MCs had the progression of skill that the Genius does, hip hop would be better for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly A Genius Aug. 23 2003
Format:Audio CD
Undeniably one of the greatest lyricists of all time. The track, "Fame" is mind-blowing. In fact, they all show why the Gza is said by fellow Wu Tang members to be "the head" of the clan. Get this album...and see if you can keep up with the Gza's incredible conscious flow. This guy is just too much. Peace

5.0 out of 5 stars A true Genius on the mic! July 31 2003
Format:Audio CD
I bought all three of his albums, and I really believe that this album is the best album he has droped so far. I love his style, he is a lyrical genius, maybe not to the level of Canibus but still one of the best. By far the best of the Wutang. His lyrics are mature and interesting in the intellectual nature. This album is great! every rap fan should have this album. From beginning to end, it will not dissapoint you. Gza is on the level of Nas and other known Hip Hop heads in terms of lyrics and intellectual knowledge. This album truly is great!! If you like Canibus, Nas, Talib, Jay Z, go and buy this now! There are a lot of wack albums this is not one of them. One more album of this nature by Gza and he will be in my opinion the second best lyrical rapper of all time behind Canibus. A TRUE CLASSIC by A TRUE GENIUS!
