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 One of the best CD's I've ever got Dec 30 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 ›

1.0 out of 5 stars Good music, waste of money - DONT BUY IT April 5 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Yeah, this album has PREVIOUSLY RELEASED material, and, frankly, I have given the "Wu" enough of my MONEY to buy an album of music I already have. Alot of these tracks are 4-5 years old! Just another ploy from the "Wu" to get more money without putting any effort in to their music. The music on the album was clearly from their glory days, which are long gone. I guess the album can be a tribute to what talent and motivation they used to have. That goes for Mobb Deep, too, who bombed on their last album from lack of effort.
In short, if you are a NEWBIE who is on the Wu bandwagon, yeah, go ahead, buy this sh*t. You already slept on these jams when u were too busy listening to Nine Inch Nails and Nirvana. But you are better off supporting "underground" artists like the BEATNUTS. Buy their albums. Wu got way TOO much money not to be motivated anymore. Peace.

Like the last reviewer before me (from Chigago), I'm not going to buy dis joint. I have bought High School High Soundtrack, Killarmy albums, Heltah Skeltah albums, GZA album, Mobb Deep albums, Raekwon album, Tha Alkaholiks album..etc..So why should i buy this?! C'mon Wu, hit us wit da new joints, f*** this moneymakin', yo ODB said dat Wu is 4 the children!! Like my man from Chigago said, SUPPORT DA UNDAGROUND HIPHOP!!...COMPANY FLOW, HIEROGLYPHICS etc..Their keepin it REAL! Wu is good, but ya know..Their doin' it 4 da money!! (Wu is like Master P & Puff: money talks & Bull$#!t walks) Hopefully Wu goes back to their Shaolin roots wit da Rebel INS joint. But anyway Killarmy is da REALEST Wu-Tang $#!+ EVER..Also prepare to face Remedy, D.S.A. & A.I.G. from the Wu-Tang Family. I really hope that 'em iz keepin it dirty n real, not tryin to moneyappeal...

5.0 out of 5 stars Hype new (and revamped) rhymes from the Wu! Great stuff!
Just get the CD. It is the Wu Tang Clan and some friends, i.e., Jermaine Dupri, Biggie, et al. You can't go wrong.
