I know therer is a good chance for people not feeling me on this one but maybe a good chance. EVERYTHING AFTER 36 CHAMBERS WAS A THIRD OR LESS GOOD and the REST . Wu doesn't amaze me after 36 Chambers except a nice handful of tracks. I'm talking about Built For Cuban Linx, Ironman, Wu-Tang Forever, Tical (pretty good but still) and anything else.

    I know. That's what I'm saying. I started listening to them again and I just can't get into them. I get bored except for the few tracks I do like.

    where return to the 36 and the first wu-banger were fresh as fuck, i always thought this was the most well produced/executed... but i would never pretend that the first one was soft to me now.

    Built for Cuban Linx, Iron Man, and Liquid Swords are all

    YEah it wasn't as hard ...The string of releases after Forever I don't celebrate like I do the earlier releases in the WU catolouge. But I hold Supmreme Clientele at that status I know some would disagree, but to me that record is solid and lyrically

    when i came to work this morning and sat down, i noticed that i was maybe still drunk. not to negate from the powerful posts i've made since then, but i think i'm gonna play that card. these things are my favorite now.

    Are you really not feeling Liquid Swords? It is GZA's second release. His first album is pretty good too:

    cosign but the production is a bit weak, much more raw though.

    Zing you did get me...However we did used to bump this record after Liquid came out... and I didn't feel it as much... my boy always tried to put "Pass the bone" when we blazed or whatever the track is and I can't say I remeber anything on that rec being too dope...

    A brilliant album.

    Even The W is a pretty good album... 36 Chambers is the definitive Wu album, yeah, but as an album I think Rae's first is better.

    i'm going through old things in my parents' basement and found this alternate playlist for wu-tang forever scrawled on the back of an envelope.  i remember my last thots on this album were post-uni, when i was wrapping my general obsession with the "golden age".  and i decided that there was a classic album in wu-tang forever.  i'm listening to it now.  will report back later.



    but yeah, there is a gang of great wu stuff after 36 chambers.

    a better tomorrow is one of their finest moments 

    odb's verse on reunited has gotta be one of his hardest aot.

    the city is one of rap's great interpolations in one of the great eras for interpolation for the genre.  see also (non-wu-r):


    a lot of under-rated beats here. some hi-def bong bong ish early on, and i'm not generally into rza's solo ish.   the beat on maria is .  and triumph gets a lot of shine for the lyrics but the beat is .

    i'm not generally for double albums in any genre, but for me, this is a nice shortened version of what they put out.  and it works as two separate vibes.  it's just a lot of a material in one place!

    what's the most under-rated wu-tang album?   i might say return to the 36 chambers?  (wait, does anyone not think it's a classic?)
