If you enjoy the Wu Ta pig sound then go cop this album. The production will blow your mind. The eerie sample loops are amazing. The sped up tempo, pitch altered soul loops are a thing of beauty. Buy this album...and thank me later.
"I'm bout to save hip hop/Like Ghost did the Wu." When Freddie Foxxx said this, he was referring to this album by Ghostface, which is the best Wu sophomore album. While you won't find many Ghost solo tracks on here like "Malcolm", almost every track is bangin'.
You can tell that RZA was trying to make up for his absence from other post-Wu Tang Forever projects because he not only produces three cuts but also executive-produces the album, making sure that every other producer brings that vintage 36 Chambers sound. The Beatnuts' JuJu provides "One", Carlos Bess gives us the unexpected party-starter, "Cherchez La Ghost", and Mathematics provides the hot collabo, "Buck 50". The latter features Method Man, Cappadonna, and...Redman? Who invited Redman? It don't matter because he humors us with lines like, "your w**d got more seeds than ODB/Can't smoke wit' ya". The only misstep is track 13, a freestyle over a backdrop scratching over and over again. Who told them that was dope? Also, the track listing on the back of the album (as well as on here) is totally wrong. Put the CD in your computer and have the track listing come up correctly in musicmatch or Windows Media Player. -EJR
Ghost is back, so break out your dyed Wallaby Clarks, put the headphones on and prepare to return to the 36 chambers of the Ironman's armor. Beginning with a nostalgic sampled theme song from the 60's Iron Man cartoon, the stage is set for the next level in the Wu World Order. This album represents both a throwback to the formula that brought the Wu to Olympiad heights, and also a newfound consistency of classic sampling that will carry them into the future.
"Nutmeg" reintroduces us to Tony Starks on a great note, with it's continual flute that anxiously breaks itself down and reconstructs, only to shattered once again by RZA in the third verse. "Child's Play" is another incredible production, as Ghost reminisces to the days when it was all so simple, with layers of samples dug up from who knows where. This type of sampling excellence is continued throughout the entire LP, with wonderful change ups in the music that keep the listener guessing, and looking forward to them. "We Made It", "Malcolm", "One", and the free for all posse cut "Wu Banga 101", each execute this style with perfect are classic Wu-Tang material.
On the more accessible tip is "Buck 50", an umtempo blazer featuring Meth & Red, with a ferocity and rawness that hasn't been heard since the early 90's.Read more ›
Along with the killer beats, Ghost feels it's necessary to use winning lines like this: "This rap is like ziti/ Facin' me real TV." Would somebody please tell me what the hell that means? Some of the production aside from the beats was a little unorganized, too. For example, in the song "One," a small voice sample plays in a loop, EVEN when Ghost is spitting. Odd, and ineffective by all means.
Now, I've seen interviews with Ghost, so I don't really expect the man to be a lyrical god. But I do expect him to be understandable, which is why the excellent beats are the high point of this album. Beatheads, rejoice. MCs, wait for Killah Priest's "View of Masada." Peace.
