Product Description


Some Wu members, like Cappadonna, are overly concerned with the way they dress, while others are a plain ol' inebriated mess (read: Ol' Dirty Bastard). For the GZA, it's all about the lyrics. With his nasal delivery and rapid-fire flow, he is the most experienced and oldest member of the Wu Tang Clan (he released a pre-Wu LP on Cold Chillin' Records entitled Words from the Genius in 1991). GZA's forte is battle rhymes (on his self-titled cut he declares that wack MCs' "lyrics are weak, like clock radio speakers"). On "Labels" he eloquently pens a complete song using only rap record label names. Loaded wordplay aside, beat-wise Liquid Swords is fully and exceptionally RZA-produced (peep the electric guitars and spacey synths on "Investigative Reports"). Liquid Swords is a perfect purchase for rap fiends who crave ill experimental beats and even iller punchlines. --Dalton Higgins

3.0 out of 5 stars LIQUID SWORDS (no full sized poster) May 17 2012
By Berny
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
Liquid Swords (Vinyl)

This is one of my favourite hip hop albums and this remaster sounds great on vinyl. I recommend it to any fan of Liquid Swords.

I had to give this 3 stars though as I did not get a poster + insert with the record. The label clearly states that it is supposed to come with a full sized poster. I sent it back once but the second copy I recieved did not have a poster either!

Finally, I just gave up considering that in the end, the content on the record is all that really matters. Having said that, it would have been nice to get a poster and insert like I was supposed to.

Best Wu solo joint of all time, period. Only Wu related album that tops this is 36 Chambers - enough said.

5.0 out of 5 stars Out of the ashes of boredom April 19 2004
By Sonky
Format:Audio CD
The first time I heard this album was on some crappy old tape which I had borrowed from a friend of mine around early 96. I had the tape for about two months and I only ended up listening to it because I was extremely bored at the time. I don't know whether it was the unique production, The GZAs voice or his flow but I got hooked to this album. I was amazed at how some dirty, old tape could be so good to me. My friend never got it back for another five monthes.
This album had got some very unique production to it and displays that true Wu sound for anyone who's a fan. I believe this to be one of the best albums from the Wu camp and even if you aren't a fan one thing for sure is that this sound was and is different and The GZA's intelligent too.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2nd Best Wu-Tang Solo April 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
This could arguably be the best Wu-Tang solo album. Once again, the RZA lays down his amazing beats for his fellow Clan-mate to glide over. The GZA, who is probably the Clan's most gifted MC, drops jewels throughout this album (peep "Labels"). This is my second favorite Wu-Tang album behind "Only built 4 Cuban Linx". Also, his second Wu album was O.K., but the "Legend of The Liquid Sword" is hot too. As far as this CD goes, certified classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Wu-Tang's Finest April 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
The GZA is a lyrical swordsman. This guy says things that make you go back and think. This album, Liquid Swords, truly defines the classic Wu-Tang sound, just like the first Wu-Tang Clan album and the first Raekwon album before it. The GZA was at his absolute best on this album, and it shows in his lyrics. Here's the review:
Album Highlights: The entire album.
Production: Thumbs up. Once again, The Rza cooks up another production masterpiece.
Lyrics and Subject Matter: Thumbs up.
Originality: Thumbs up.
The Last Word: Other GZA albums after this have not lived up to this release. GZA released this at a good time in hip hop. Hip Hop music right now needs releases like this. Overall, this album is BRILLIANT. It's the classic Wu-Tang sound in all of its glory, and for that I strongly recommend that you purchase this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Liquid Swords is A Genius' Work March 4 2004
By DeBear
Format:Audio CD
Gza is the most lyrically sound emcee in the entire wu tang clan, and im not picking favorites, he is not even my favorite member of the clan. There is almost no doubting his remarkebly easy flow and creavtive metaphors, which can either make you just want to hear more, or rewind it to hear what he just said. While listening to this album, and earing some of his unbelieveably creative rhymes, I wondered how does he come up with these, "Lyrics are weak, like clock radio speakers", is just an example of his creatvity. He has the ability to hit you in all types of places which has been a rare quality in an emcee since the beginning of hip-hop and is completely exstinct in today's rap. Aside from the lyrics, Rza, brings in some of his sickest and his most eerie for this album. Using experimentally spooky and out there sounds to create his unbelieveable beats which are always put together perfectly to allow Gza to flow right over them. Some of the best Wu tang beats of all time are on this album, perhaps many are. Gza also often credits Rza for his insane production, "my sword still remain imperial, Before I blast the mic, RZA scratch off the serial" showing he knows he is not the only reason this album is monumental.
As an emcee, Gza seems to make other rappers on his tracks better lyrically. Notably Inspectah Deck and Method Man. On the albums best song "Cold World", The inspectah virtually outshines Gza which is a complete shock considering how sick Gza's verse is. The inspectah seems to just be a bit hungrier,"No time to freeze undercovers roll up in grand prix and seize packages and pocket the currency, clicks control strips full clips are sprayed, Yellow tape barricades sidewalks where bodies lay". Aside from whose better on the track, the two make the best tag team wu record of all time.
