5.0 out of 5 stars Enter the Wu-Tang
Once you enter the 36 Chambers, theres no going back. An awesome album, from the Wu, the beats are the best that I've heard, and all of their hits are unforgettable. One of the best albums of all time. Made in 1993, its solid and will always be.

3.0 out of 5 stars Music awesome, Vinyl was warped
Obviously I got this album because I love it. It obviously met my expectations. Wu tang clan is one of the best hip hop groups to ever have been formed.
the only down side is that the vinyl came warped. which i'm not pleased with. but it sounds fine.
long live the wu!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have For Any Serious Hip Hop Collection!!!,
I gotta say that Hip Hop is in a very sad state nowadays. "Artists" who got no flow or talent whatsoever keep popping up like diseases. Not only that, but they keep bringing in there posse who usually have less talent than them. If you want good hip hop, go back a few years. This album is the cornerstone of a good hip hop collection. For the most part, all Wu Tang members have talent. They all have there own distinct sound, made better with the great production skills of the RZA. Enter the Wu-Tang does not take a few listens to get into, you'll notice the distinct East Coast sound right away. Can't say I've got a favorite track altough C.R.E.A.M stands out the most(from my perspective). Anywho, if you don't already own this go out and get it. If you do then you know why it's good.
5.0 out of 5 stars best wu cd,
By A Customer
This CD is impeccable. Except for that one idiot who's claiming 50¢ is the greatest, i think we all agree that this cd is nearly flawless. I'd say that every track is the best song on the cd. I highly reccomend this is your a wu fan at all, and if youre not, you should probably buy it and give it to someone who is, therefore making their life complete.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Legendary Album,
Even if you are not really into this kind of hip hop, you will still probably enjoy this album. Its just quality and original. And it is also historically signficant, and spurned the many solo projects of Wu Tang members, and even led to many TV and movie appearances (Method Man in How High and Method & Red; Raekwon in Black & White)
On the other hand, it shoudl have had more tracks. I mean, after all, with all those Wu Tang memebrs, do you mean to tell me that they could only come up with like a dozen songs?

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite possibly the best hip hop record ever recorded,
When trying to describe this album, I have trouble finding the words. I think what I love about this album is that it is a blast to listen to. Think about it, has there ever been a hip hop record that combined so many different group members with different styles and pulled it off? I doubt it. There are so many different characters to this album. You have to listen to the whole thing again and again just to take in the lyrical genius of these 9 guys. An awesome album beginning to end.
5.0 out of 5 stars Hip Hop at its finest!,
Why should you buy this?
listen to the opening strains of 'protect ya neck' or even better
the guttural screaming of RZA on 'Bring Da Ruckus', and no way
in hell you won't be affected.
A must for every single music lover
5.0 out of 5 stars Where The Legacy Started,

They Are:Ol'Dirty Bastard,Method Man,GZA,RZA,Masta Killa,Raekwon,Ghostface Killah,Inspectah Deck and later to come U-God and Cappadonna and Killah Priest and Shyheim and etc.
Favorite Tracks: Method Man,C.R.E.A.M., Da Mystery Of Chessboxin

LET THE MOVEMENT BEGIN
5.0 out of 5 stars Wu tang Clan: Rap napalm,
Where there is monotony and 2-D artists there will be the 4-D ingeniuty that break way from false contract images and dead end lyrics. This is the highest most praised and the utmost ultimate example of this. At the time of the early 90's rap had got too happy. With gold chains and laceless adidas sneakers putting smmiles on the world's faces, the rap artists had forgotten their roots where there was discrimination, random assaults and always the s£%! end of the stick in life. Where rap was the only exhalation in the suffocating enviroment of urban life. It seemed that the west coast picked up on this before the east, Ice Cube, Dre,2pac, Snoop, warren g and death row were dominating the rap scene with all the ferocity,originality and gangsta assertiveness that the rap audience hungered for. The east coast were dying although the quiet few were steadily rising e.g. nas, black moon they did nt reach the worldwide platinum sales the west coast had achieved, yet.....
'93: Rza, Gza, ODB, Meth, Rebel INS, U-God, Raekwon the Chef, Masta Killa and Ghostface Killah spelled earth shattering rap for the nation. THE group that would balance the scale of the West-East rap game. THE music that would bring forth legions of cult rap fans spewing forth highly intelligent hords of lyrics to backslap the commercial scene to h--l.
How did they do it. I would have to say they are truly genius artists. To further define this there system of kung-fu cuts, grimy stringz and piano keys and pulsating basslines would lay the foundations of how the new rap music was to be created. Unformulaic and different, when I first listened to it I was like "What the F%$£ is this?" After the 2nd listen the music consumed me, I fell into the wing chun nun chuck swingning beats and indulged in something highly original. It's just the way the whole thing is composed, it sounds as if it was created in someones bedroom under the influence of genetically enhanced drugs and a truckload of malt liquor. But it all links, the distorted backing tracks contrast with the terrifying battle raps, the martial arts cuts sluice the liquified quiet piano riffs and morphed strings e.g. Bring Da Ruckus, Wu tang clan aint nuthin to f wit. This all drags the listener further into the teachings of the 36 chambers beacuse everyone wanted something different and the WU were delivering it in truck loads.
I aint got nuttin else to say except every artists were at they top game on this album, they were all starving so they had to put their heart and soul into this. It shows so much check C.R.E.A.M. where Rae and Deck bare their souls on life. And Protect Ya neck, without a doubt the best song on the album, HIgh voltage ryhmes and pure KUNGFUISM. This is the first album of Wu u should buy, believe me. DISGUSTING.
Rap never knew what hit it when the hooded swordsmen hit the streets with ENTER THE WU TANG: 36 CHAMBERS. If you need refreshment from bling bling, mercedes benz and gun toting strip club lovin' retards then
pick this megaton up real quick and filter out your grimed out earz with a new type of grime....
Fave songz: 4th Chamber, Protect ya neck, C.R.E.A.M., and Tearz.
I finish as usual with some words from the artists. The wise high exhalted Raekwon ".... The wu the WU got suttin that I know everyone wanta hear coz i know i bin waitin to hear, but straight up and now till we gotta go we gonna keep goin...."
Keep the Wu-Tang Dynasty alive my people and keep HIP HOP.
5.0 out of 5 stars Wu-Tang's Best.,
The first cd is always the best in most cases, and it is for Wu-tang, its the RZA, GZA, Ghostface Killa, Raekwon, Method Man, Kill Army, Cappadonna,Master Killa, Killa Priest, and Masta Ace. the cd is really good because the artist flow so good together and the lyrics are crazy, and there engergy is is nut. Wu-tang kicks so much azz.
