Import only coupling of their 'Enter the Wu-Tang' (includes a bonus track over the US pressing) and 'The W'. Packaged in an exclusive slip case. Sony/BMG.
This debut revolutionized hip-hop (and launched half a dozen solo careers), as much for The RZA's raw barrage of off-kilter, off-key loops and sound effects as for its elliptically violent lyrics. Martial arts--at least as they appear in kung fu movies--are the Wu-Tang Clan's favorite metaphor, but they're also the organizing principle of the group, a crowd of eight rappers, each with his own way-out-there "fighting style." They created their own little self-contained culture, with its own symbols and shifting identities, and let listeners figure it out for themselves. Unless you're willing to immerse yourself in its world, it can be baffling and a little dry, but its aggression and originality are undeniable. --Douglas Wolk

'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.Read more ›
Bring Da Ruckus (RZA, GZA, Inspektah Deck, Ghostface Killah, and Raekwon, what better way to begin an album by challenging ANYONE to bring the ruckus)
Shame On A Nigga (ODB, Method Man, Raekwon, tight stuff here)
Clan In Da Front (GZA, the genius of the Clan gets to show why he's one of the best members in the group, lyrically)
Wu-Tang:7th Chamber (the entire clan, except U-God, everyone shines on this track)
Can It Be All So Simple (Raekwon and Ghostface, an introduction to the supreme duo of Rae and Ghost)
