Warn a Brother…Wu-Tang sucks
Man, I feel sorry for whoever bought the one of kind copy of this LP which went for a few milli earlier in the year. I’ve often wondered how much of a head fuck it would be to put a wu tang album together, thinking that hard should have been enough reason for the RZA to call the Wu quits after Iron Flag anyway, it’s a cash cow with the hipsters these days though.
20 something year on and most of us aint expecting a 36 chambers but this shit is just a weird listen from start to finish, almost awkward with the peculiar sung hooks like on ‘Felt’ and ‘mistaken identity’, ABC flows from most members and more wak punch lines ‘than a late John Belushi flick’. Retarded story telling from U-God (standard), as I quote his opening line on ‘Mistaken Identiy’ ‘hunnnnuuuunnnunnnahhh’, dude sounds like a stuttering crack addict (it probably not far from the truth). GZA’s sounding mad wavy from the sauce on ‘Hold the Heater’. Ghost and Deck redeem a few spots here and there but all I see here is a fat Warner Breh check, the RZA fucking off on some magical musical orgy and calling in some old ‘mate’s’ in for few rounds of cluster fuck. No more albums will be a ‘better tomorrow’.
If you see the new Wu Tang – Warner Brother….
