Wu-Tang Clan member Ghostface Killah is up to something fishy again, and this time it involves his equally crazily-named 17-year-old son. The rapper's More Fish is the sequel to his Fishscale. The new record features Ghostface's offspring, Sun God, on the songs 'Miguel Sanchez' and 'God 2 God.' The album also includes contributions from Redman, The Lox's Sheek Louch and Ghostface's Theodore Unit crew of Trife Da God, Cappadonna and Shawn Wiggs. Production credits go to Ghostace (real name Tony Starks), MF Doom, Pete Rock, Madlib, Hi-Tek and others. 'Good' is the album's first single, while other songs include 'Ghost Is Back,' 'Cartoonz,' 'Josephine' and the Hardy Boys-themed 'Stones From Greece.' More Fish will be Ghostace's sixth studio album.

The album begins with "Ghost Is Back," a song utilizing a classic old-school sample for Ghost to announce his return and make a grand entrance. "Miguel Sanchez" is the first song on the album to explore the mafioso rap style that Ghostface has mastered throughout his career. This song features guest appearances from Trife and Sun God. The production is rough and horn-heavy. The next two songs "Guns N' Razors" and "Outta Town S..." follow in the same manner, both excellent tracks. I am really enjoying "Good," one of my favorite songs on the album. This should be an obvious single, it is a joyful sounding, upbeat song featuring a Trife and a particularly soulful chorus from Mr. Maygreen, Ghost and Trife trade off boastful, happy verses over heavy jazz horns. "Street Opera" kind of reminds me of "Shakey Dog" from "Fishscale," very tough with smooth music. "Block Rock" has gritty-sounding production and lyrics, a very street-level song. "Pokerface" is a very original song. In the way that Wu-Tang used the metaphor of chess throughout numerous songs during the 90s, Ghost and rhyming partner Shawn Wigs do the same to Texas Hold `em on this song. I didn't like the Redman collabo "Greedy B....," but after that comes my favorite song on the album "Josephine." The Willie Cottrell Band provides a funky, thoughtful live instrumentation to this great song, and the singing vocals of the hook are soulful and excellent. Ghostface and Trife both rap about the downfall of a woman, and this song is just great, everyone performs to their full potential. "Grew Up Hard" follows it well, a smooth and catchy rap song. D-Block vet Sheek Louch shows up for "Blue Armor," maybe the hardest song on the album. The odd "You Know I'm No Good" and funny "Alex (Stolen Script)" follow, the latter reminds me of a few of the more obscure songs on "Fishscale." Shawn Wigs is allowed a solo song for "Gotta Hold On." Initially I was not looking forward to this, but it turned out to be one of my favorite on the album, and it's a song I really like. Shawn raps heartfelt lyrics about a tough relationship, and Eamon (of "I Don't Want You Back" fame) sings a surprisingly good hook over a good beat that's really catchy and fitting. The album ends with a remix to "Fishscale"'s hit single "Back Like That," this time featuring Kanye West.
I am so impressed that Ghostface Killah could release not only one but two of the most original, enjoyable hip hop albums of my memory within only eight months of each other. If you liked "Fishscale" at all, then this should be a no-brainer of a purchase. You won't find it being redundant though, because it's also a very impressive single listen even without its predecessor. This is an awesome album, and Ghostface really provides great hip hop in a time where it often seems like it's lacking. Whether or not he is rewarded with sales this time around, Ghostface certainly is the rapper of the year.
Other guests on this album come from Sheek Louch and the long-missed Reggie Noble make dope appearances on this album, especially Reggie. Production is handled by a wide variety of producers, as DOOM returns under his Metal Fingers guise to offer Ghost two pieces of dope music, and Madlib even hops behind the boards for Block Rock. Relative unknowns Anthony Acid and Fantom of the Beats also provide great landscapes for Ghost to crop his vivid stories. Some tracks are a little bit below-par for Ghostface standards(Good, Back Like That[remix], Gotta Hold On), but this is Pretty Tone standards we're speaking about; even these average cuts from Ghost are better than the best cuts on a lot of cat's albums, and they aren't flaws by any means.
Ghost's rhymes are as razor-sharp as they've ever been; he keeps the Wu-tradition alive in 2006, while some of his fellow Clansmen released admittedly dissapointing albums. Fishscale and More Fish more than make up for the 4:21's and Mr. Xtreme's, though; while Meth and U-God maybe going for commercial appeal with their albums(no idea why U-God attempted that, having no appeal commercially or underground..), Ghostface keeps the true hip-hop coming from the Clan.
With dope cuts flowing over the brim of Ghost's cap on More Fish(Ghost Is Back, Miguel Sanchez, Guns N' Razors, Outta Town ****, Street Opera, Block Rock, Pokerface, Greedy *****es, Josephine, Grew Up Hard, Blue Armor, You Know I'm No Good, Alex (Stolen Script), virtually every track but the two aforementioned average ones), Ghost provides yet another album of the year contendor with More Fish. This doesn't have as many ties in sound to Fishscale as you'd expect; they're two completely different projects, which are dope for their own reasons. This maybe more Theodore Unit than solo Ghostface, but everyone delivers in this project. Released on the same day as his Def Jam counterpart Young Jeezy's The Inspiration, Jeezy'll undoubtedly sell more than Ghost, but true heads know who go to for tales of coke-peddling, and ill emceeing; Ghostface reigns supreme again.
Good lyrics and a convincing delivery
Hot beats that borrow from R&B classics of the past without raping them
An underlying concept that holds the tracks together
For some reason however the buying public is not sold. Am I missing something? Maybe its cause I'm not from the U.S.Anyway, politics and BS aside this is another classic from Ghostface who hasn't missed a step since Bulletproof wallets (Including the mixtapes 718 & Put It On The Line).
The Theodore Unit has shrunk slightly since the last outing with only Trife (next in line), Sean Wigs & Sun God making significant appearances. The 4 have great chemistry as evidenced by the stellar "Miguel Sanchez" where Sun God builds nicely on the hot Trife verse. Ghost and Sun (pun intended) show and prove on "Street Opera" and Sean Wigs holds his own next to the master on "Pokerface"
MF Doom resurrects some old beats to perfection on "Gunz n' Razorz" and "Alex (Stolen Scripts)" over which Ghost weaves his stories in classic ghost fashion. The two joints are definite highlights of the project. Hi Tek also makes an appearance on "Josephine" a version that is slightly different from the one found on his own Hi Teknology. The rest of the production is handled by some new kid (at least I never heard of him) who handles himself like a vet around the boards.
Guest wise, three are real surprises, the first is Redman on "Greedy B****es", Amy Winehouse on "You No I'm No Good" and Kanye West on "Back Like That (Remix)". All three represent especially Kanye who does a take on an old Ghostface verse.
Overall the album is dope. Don't get it twisted, this is more fish NOT leftover fish
