This Week's Album:
Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) by Wu-Tang Clan
Boy we got a good one this week, almost 20 years ago, the Wu-Tang Clan released Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). It's had a huge impact on the hip hop world, but does it still hold up today? Let's find it.
Yes. Yes it does. This album holds up greatly. This is one really great album, probably one of the most influential hip-hop albums ever made. It set the guidelines for hardcore hip-hop, became somewhat of a guideline for modern hip-hop production, and brought back the East Coast/New York rap scene, helping bring success to rappers like Nas, Jay Z, Notorious B.I.G., and Mobb Deep. There are few albums they have such powerful emotion and humor like this one, and let me tell you, these emotions and humor are dark, very, very dark. Everybody on the album kills it, they all have something cool/interesting/funny to say and they fucking say it. If it wasn't for this album, modern hip-hop would be very, very different.
For those who don't like reading my reviews, here's a basic TL;DR for you:
THINGS I LIKED: The production, the lyrics, pretty much everything the group presents in this album... except...
THINGS I HATED: Not necessarily hate, but I don't really dig the beat on Tearz.
STAND OUT SONGS: Bring the Ruckus, Shame on a Nigga, Method Man, Protect Ya Neck, Wu-Tang: 7th Chamber - Part II / Conclusion
OVERALL SCORE: 9.7/10
So, like the album, hate it? Tell me what you think, and use the guideline if you want to (Click the spoiler).
Additionally, I have no fucking clue what to make next week's album, so suggest something in the comments, I would prefer something that came out recently (within the last two weeks or month), so suggest something!
