Product Description

Amazon.ca

Wu-Chronicles compiles 14 tracks of previously released Wu-tinged madness, along with a pair of new tracks. Most of these feature Wu family members as guests on tracks from the Notorious B.I.G. ("The What," featuring Method Man), Mobb Deep ("Right Back at You," featuring Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, and Big Noyd), and Tha Alkaholiks ("Hip Hop Drunkies," featuring Ol' Dirty Bastard). There are also killer cuts by Wu stalwarts such as Genius/GZA, Raekwon, RZA, and Inspectah Deck. Though some hardcore fans may deem this release redundant because most of these tracks have seen the light of wax before, they will still want to own it for the convenience factor, the ultra-cool artwork, and those two new offerings: "Latunza Hit," by the Wu-Syndicate, is an infectious downtempo track infused with a solid bass groove and misty-mountaintop atmosphere, while "'96 Recreation (Demo)" features longtime Wu cohort Cappadonna along with RZA and Ol' Dirty Bastard, all three dropping heavy verses over an eerie, rumbling beat. --Spencer Abbott

4.0 out of 5 stars THE FIRST CHAPTER Oct. 15 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
BASICALLY, IF YOU A WU TANG FAN, YOU SHOULD HAVE THIS ALBUM. SOME PEOPLE COMPLAIN ABOUT THIS ALBUM BECAUSE IT HAS LOTS OF ALREADY RELEASED MATERIAL. BUT IF YOU CAN READ, YOU'D KNOW THAT THE WORD CHRONICLES MEANS A HISTORICAL RECORD OF EVENTS, AND THAT'S JUST WHAT THIS ALBUM IS. IS A LOOK BACK AT WU TANG JOINTS AND WU TANG COLABOS BETWEEN THE YEAR 93-96. JOINTS LIKE "HIP HOP DRUNKIES" BY THE LIKS(COP THEIR NEW ALBUM) FEATURING OL' DIRTY BASTARD AND "RZA'S MIX OF "COLD WORLD" BY THE GZA FEATURING D' ANGELO, ARE TRACKS NO WU FAN SHOULD BE WITHOUT. SHYHEIM'S "YOUNG GODZ" IS A HOT TRACK THAT SOME MIGHT NOT BE FAMILIAR WITH. SO FOR THESE 3 SONGS ALONE, THE ALBUM IS WORTH GETTING. (COP SHYHEIM'S AKA THE RUGGED CHILD, THE LOST GENERATION AND MANCHILD IF YOU DON'T HAVE THEM ALREADY.) ALL THE SONGS ARE TIGHT. YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPPOINTED.

5.0 out of 5 stars When hip hop was about beats & rhymes! July 14 2003
By Teck9
Format:Audio CD
Well, all the songs are onpoint thats why i gave 5 starts but i have and own every single song here... My favorites ? Genious "cold world" and mobb deep's "right back at you" the best two tracks there but the rest is tight as well! Worth your money ? yes, if you haven't heard early wu and want to get schooled buy it but if your hooked on that ludacris trash along with ja rule,nelly,gay z,fabulos,bowow...Then, don't even bother ! This is strictly for long time fans or who ever feel true hip hop... Don't foget where it came from, son !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice blend of classic cuts Aug. 14 2001
Format:Audio CD
This album is often compared to "Rza's Greatest Hits" but this one has more classic tracks. If you are a true wu head then you might want to pick this up. I won't elaborate on the album too much because its material comes from other pervious Wu albums.

more knowledge to your wig. The songs with AZ and Ras Kass are treats and then getting The What, and the first two bangers from Genius' and Rae's albums respectively, plus the demo song and the cold world remix, and the jams with heltah skeltah, cocoa brovas and alkoholiks which were all dope and this is just a slamming compilation. you cant go wrong with this album, period. I figure if youre getting wu people from others' albums, though, not getting Pac's Got My Mind Made Up w/perhaps my favorite Meth vers ever was too bad, but you can't get everything, just think how many damn songs these guys have all made now, and they came out w. protect yr neck just 6 years back!

5.0 out of 5 stars Indeed a great album May 6 2000
By Rod
Format:Audio CD
This album has the same elements of every Wu album. Depth, Beats, and MCing all put into one nice package. Although all these songz (except 2) were previously released, many Wu fans to NOT own all these albums. This was a great way of bringing Wu back into the world of music, shine light on some members we see less often, and entertain us with some killer cuts. My reccomendation: BUY THIS ALBUM

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best CD's I've ever got Dec 31 1999
Format:Audio CD
All right, I will give you the full review since I didn't do it the last time. 4th Chamber: This is one of my favorite songs, the piano beat in the background is cool and also RZA and Masta Killa's verses are really tight. Makes GZA sounds weak. Wu-Gambinos: Also a very good song. Method Man went first and rapped really well. I thought Masta Killa was tight on this song even though I think he is very underrated. The What: It has Notorius B.I.G. and Method Man. What can you say? It starts off strong in the beginning and finishes strong. Cold World: This could have been a good song without D'Angelo and I didn't hear Inspectah Deck even though it said he was in it. Tragedy: This is a single by THE RZA himself. TIGHT lyrics. 2 words. Black Trump: Cocoa Brovaz and Reakwon rips it up in this one. You can't find this song in any other Wu-album except this one. Hip-Hop Drunkies: I really don't like ODB but the Alkohiks are pretty cool. ODB had a cool verse in this song but he just dosen't raps like any other Wu-Tang member. Gunz N' Onez: I only heard this song once so I couldn't comment it. Sorry, but it has Method Man. Latunza Hit: Also one of my favorite songs in the album. I love the beat, this should be a classic. Wake Up: WAKE THE F--- UP! This could be a great song. The piano beats were cool. Prodigal Sun's verse were sooo tight in the beginning. But then he speeds up and dosen't follow the beat anymore. That's when the song falls apart. Young Godz: Never knew Shyheim this guy. He sounds like a 14 year old kid rappin'. This is a good song showin' their skillz. Right Back At You: The beats sound like from the early 90's or something. Mobb Deep one of the tightest around. This is a good song. The Birth: AZ? Who is he? Read more ›
