Okay, I know there are a few Rap music fans, and Wu-Tang fans as well. I was wondering what the opinion of the Wu's third album is? Personally, after having a week to listen and review it, I really like it. At first listen, I was dissapointed, because I kept hearing that the Wu was going back to the style that made them popular and famous to begin with. After further review, while going back to their roots in some aspects, they also have yet again taken Hip-Hop to a new level. They are again setting the standard by which others will be judged, and no doubt, there will be several bitters in the coming months of the new Wu style. The W seems to be a combination of 36 Chambers and Wu-Tang Forever with a large dose of NEW thrown in. Tracks like "Chamber Music", Careful (Click, Click)", Hollow Bones", "Do You Really" and "Gravel Pit" are instantly great tracks. The already released and popular "Protect Ya Neck (The Jump Off)", while personally not liking the beat, I like the fact that each Wu member gets to drop a verse, and there all pretty short and to the point, and for me, that saves the track. Overall, this is a classic album. On the scale of a 1 to 5, I give it a 4.5 There are a few off moments for the Wu on The W, but overall, this is a classic disk.
Also, for all of you that hate Rap, I respect you're opinion, but this is for people that LIKE rap,a nd would like to intelligently talk about the new Wu-Tang album. If you feel the need to talk shit, start a new post. Thanks.
