Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

The Wu-Tang Clan have slimmed down on their lean and mean third album, both in title and in content. Clearly having learned a lesson from the ostentatious affair that was their last group effort, Wu-Tang Forever, The W weighs in at a taut 13 tracks, with little, if any, extraneous self-righteous solipsism. RZA returns to the boards for all but one track and proves that Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) was no fluke, manipulating ghoulish soul to chilling effect on "Hollow Bones" and dropping (and chopping) thunderous horns at the intro to "One Blood Under W" (which features a stellar turn from reggae don Junior Reid). The album's first two singles--"Protect Ya Neck (The Jump Off)" and "Gravel Pit"--are both fierce, propulsive numbers, inspiring the Wu collective--Ghostface Killah and Method Man in particular--to higher energy levels than they've displayed in years. Elsewhere, The W is Ghost's record, especially on the unhinged lament "I Can't Go to Sleep" and the prostrate plea "Jah World." Memorably, Snoop and ODB collaborate to comic effect on "Conditioner," and all the album's cameos--from Redman and Nas to Isaac Hayes and Busta Rhymes--show that the group is still as savvy as ever. On The W, the boasting is earned. --Jon Caramanica

THIS IS MORE THAN JUST AN ALBUM REVIEW..I HOPE SOMEONE FROM WU READS THIS ONE DAY..IF THEY WISH TO RETURN TO THE TOP THE Y NEED TO LISTEN UP..WU TANG IS THE GREATEST MUSIC GROUP OF ALL TIME..NO OTHER GROUP HAS COME OUT WITH AS MANY CLASSICS AS WU..AND THEIR SOLO MEMBERS JOINTS ARE CLASSICS..NO OTHER GROUP IN THE HISTORY OF MUSIC HAS HAD SUCH SUCCESS..AS SOLO ARTISTS AND AS A GROUP..
THE FORMULA IS EASY WU...PLEASE LISTEN..HERES MY FIVE STEPS TO RETURN TO GREATNESS..
1. MORE GZA..MORE GZA..MORE GZA....ESPECIALLY WITH METH
2. NO OUTSIDE MEMBERS OF WU ALLOWED..UNLESS FROM OTHER MUSIC GENRE..I DONT WANNA HEAR SNOOP OR ANYONE ELSE
3. ONLY ONE SLOW SONG ALLOWED PER ALBUM
4. RZA OR INS PRODUCED TRACKS ONLY!!
5. STAY WITH THE MARTIAL ARTS SAMPLES AND FEEL TO THE ALBUMS..once they got off this they went a little downhill..
AND RZA WHEN U DO THIS DONT FORGET WHO TOLD U
THE W IS HOT AS CAN BE WHEN THEIR ALL BEHIND HARDCORE UPTEMPO BEATS..THEY NEVER FAIL..EXCEPT FOR THE SLOW ONES AND THE ONES WITH OTHER NON WU MEMEBERS EXCEPT FOR THE ONE WITH NAS
WU TANG FOREVER IS THEIR BEST ALBUM..THE W IS 3RD BEST

I don't understand why people say "this album is horrible" and such. I think this album is much better than Forever. It has fewer tracks, most of them being Wu Bangas. It just sounds better than Forever. All the tracks are awesome, but standouts are Hollow Bones, Gravel Pit, Protect Ya Neck, Do You Really, One Blood Under W, and I Can't Go To Sleep. "Hollow Bones" is great, with INS dropping FIRE on this track, his flow bobbing and weaving over the soulful sample and guitar riff. "Gravel Pits" has a great beat, and Meth and Ghost come correct here. "Protect Ya Neck" was the first song I heard from this album about four years ago, and when I heard it I was obsessed with Deck's verse. The rest of the song is great too; Ghostface as usual is fire, so are Meth, Masta Killa and the Genius. The beat to this song is true Wu. Although at first it doesn't sound like it, but as you get into the song, you can hear that Shaolin sound. "Do You Really" is introduced by Kay Slay, and the beat is crazy, as Meth and Masta Killa come strong on this track."One Blood," MK is fire on this. He has always had a great flow, and this song showcases it (finally). "I Can't Go To Sleep," the music is amazing. It is like the funk orchestras that the master and man on the hook here, Isaac Hayes did in the 70's. I like Ghost on this; you can feel the passion on this track.
This album is great. I rank it behind 36 Chambers and in front of Forever; I have yet to listen to Iron Flag in entirety. This album is more diverse than the Wu's previous two. Although nothing can come close to 36 Chambers, this album is amazing; people just won't acknowledge that because it is so different.
Look out for Tical 0: The Prequel by Meth May, Pretty Toney by Ghostface April 20th, and No Said Date by the Fifth Brother, Masta Killa in May.

wow, i saw a lot of negative reviews from the wu-heads here. i understand how they feel, so let me lay it down forreal for you guys. true, this album isn't very dark. true this album has some "weak" beats. it's growth once again. every rap group need to grow from their roots, they can't keep blowing up with the same stuff can they? lyrically they are still tight, not as tight as others i'll admit slightly. the album has guest appearances, showing that they made money and can afford it. this album's sound is kind of funky. it's not exactly down dirty, but it's the wu reaching for the light. "Gravel Put" was...ah good lord it was kind of commercial. it's all happy and stuff. kind makes me wanna throw up, but the flows on there was NICE. i think the problem with wu is their beats sometimes. rza needs to keep it dirty, but rza's trying to make money, i gotta give it up to him. this album is one a needle, i'm not sure if i should tell you to get it. so this is what i'm gonna narrow it down to. borrow it!

ok guys, First thing let y'all know is, this is not a good album, there have MANY WEAK BEAT, it's really unbelievable that Rza make too many weak beat in this album!
let's talk the first half of THE W,
The First 6 song is not good!
"Intro/Shaolin Finger Jab" uh! bad music! I don't like it! 2.5/5
"Careful Click Click" bored me to death with that wack chorus and the beat/background music is bad! 2.5/5
"Hollow Bones" have a nice background music but this song is without a strong beat, which is really fu*ked up! 3/5
"RedBull" featuring Redman is another song that I don't want to skip too HARD, but this is so mediocre too!3.5/5
"One Blood Under W" a mediocre song, but the reggae chorus is not good! 3/5
"Conditioner" Featuring Snoop Dogg, but this is one of the worst song at album, the first time I listen to this one, I skip it quickly even Snoop haven't show up! 2/5
after 6 su*k songz, come up with the BEST song in album,
"Protect Ya neck (The Jump Off)" this one is a TRUE BANGER!!! The Best song in this album!!! 5/5
"Let My Niggas Live" sh*t!!! this one featuring Nas, but I wish Wu have a BETTER BEAT to let Nas Rap alone, Featuring Nas[1 ov my favorite rapper] is really cool but the WEAK beat fu*k it up!!! 2/5
"I Can't Go To Sleep" HOW CAN U Can't Go To Sleep when you hear a lullaby like this one? 2.5/5
"Do You Really [Thang, Thang]" a better song, but not great! 3/5
"The Monument" Featuring Busta Rhyme, with a better beat. 3/5
"Gravel Pit" a Great Song in this album, with a REALLY COOL MUSIC VIDEO, have a Kung Fu Fightin' show at the end of the video, worth to check it out! 4/5
"Jah World" You Don't need to listen this one actually, just get back the record from your player!
