Oh man I call myself a Wu Tang fan, love all of Ghostface's other albums, but have never heard Ironman. Also never heard Tical in its entirety IIRC and only recently got into the ODB thanks to a dude at work :/

like all the recs but how is it anything but linx -- ghost is better on it than on ironman, and i feel like rae's flow has aged the best out of all the wu mcs. rza's pinnacle of production etc etc. but it's all about rae for me, never get tired of his voice or slang

liquid swords has some corny-ass proto-grocery bag similes

rae & ghost were totally w/in character the whole time, way more visceral record, and tical never has meth saying "scriptures hit the body like sawed of shottys / like my hair knotty and my nosepiece snotty"

interk3llar overdrive (Whiney G. Weingarten), Wednesday, 13 October 2010 12:26 (4 years ago) Permalink

i guess sub-question would be what;s yr fave song on any of these records...

Mine would be like a five-way tie between "Bring The Pain," "Daytona 500," "Liquid Swords," "Shimmy Shimmy Ya" and the one where ODB fucks the teacher of his oral sex class

Since when was Liquid Swords about "the street vibe"? "Liquid Swords" (the song) especially is all about imaginative metaphors and similies, and IMO "lyrics is weak like clock radio speakers" is a fine example of that.

Tuomas, Wednesday, 13 October 2010 12:44 (4 years ago) Permalink

i think deej's point is that it's more awkward than imaginative, but i always liked GZA's outre lyrical curveballs--"feminine like sandals," etc

interk3llar overdrive (Whiney G. Weingarten), Wednesday, 13 October 2010 12:47 (4 years ago) Permalink

I don't see how it's awkward... Instead of using some stereotypical example of weakness he comes up with a totally unexpected yet instantly understandable simile. To me that's pretty imaginative.

Tuomas, Wednesday, 13 October 2010 12:57 (4 years ago) Permalink

i get where deej is coming from... just like grocery bag stuff, it doesnt really add anything. it's just a random example of 'weak'

Aren't all similes random, when you think about it? And why should they "add" something? What is it that they're supposed to add?

rappers are inhabiting a persona, and while GZA is one second rapping about "life of a drug dealer!!" apparently hes a drug dealer who spent his crack rock cash on a shitty clock radio.

i mean, i still like the album. like whiney said a lot of that stuff, esp 'feminine like sandals!!!' is still charming in its way. but yeah GZA's style is super dated sounding relative to the rest (which makes sense, hes the oldest dude in the clan right?)

No; when you think about similes, you come to the inescapable conclusion that a well-formed simile is not random.

Okay, as I posted upthread, I voted GZA, and I fall squarely into the NME reading circa '95 corny indie fuxor demographic. I love all 5 of these albums, and the reason I voted GZA was as follows:
1) RZA's production- weird plinky casio keyboard beats, RZA before he lapsed into self parody
2) Great GZA lyrics (but this has been done to death)
3) Cameos from other members of the Wu at the top of their games
4) Samples: even compared to Cuban Linx, the kung fu movie samples take it to another level, and make the album a coherent whole
5) "In Bristol, with a fuckin' pistol" I first heard this record when living in Bristol and that line made it for me

Having said all this, on another day I could have voted for Cuban Linx (probably the Wu record I've listened to most, even though it tails off towards the end) or Return (though Nigga Please is its rival IMO). Tical and Ironman are both great, but don't rival those 3.

Also, 36 Chambers will always be my favourite Wu record.

Another great American lyricist has just published a book of his own: “Finishing the Hat” (Knopf; $39.95), by Stephen Sondheim, is curiously similar in form to “Decoded.” Sondheim is just as appealing a narrator as Jay-Z, although he’s much less polite. (While Jay-Z has almost nothing bad to say about his fellow-rappers, Sondheim is quick to disparage his rivals, subject to a “cowardly but simple” precept: “criticize only the dead.”) But where Jay-Z wants to help readers see the poetry in hip-hop, Sondheim thinks poeticism can be a problem: in his discussion of “Tonight,” from “West Side Story,” he half apologizes for the song’s “lapses into ‘poetry.’ ” And where Bradley and DuBois are quick to praise rappers for using trick rhymes and big words, Sondheim is ever on guard against “overrhyming” and other instances of unwarranted cleverness. “In theatrical fact,” he writes, “it is usually the plainer and flatter lyric that soars poetically when infused with music.” Most rappers are no less pragmatic: they use the language that works, which is sometimes ornate, but more often plainspoken, even homely. (One thinks of Webbie, the pride of Baton Rouge, deftly rhyming “drunk as a fuckin’ rhino” with “my people gon’ get they shine on.”) Maybe future anthologies will help show why the most complicated hip-hop lyrics aren’t always the most successful.

well first up: Cappadonna's the Pillage. This is 1/3rd of a decent record, the majority of it is pointless and at least one track (Young Heart) is outright terrible. The dude just doesn't have enough personality and wit to make a decent solo record. He has no ear for lyrical hooks, his flow is monotonous and kinda clumsy... half the time it sounds like he's just stringing random catchphrases together. Unsurprisingly, the handful of gems on here are the cuts with other Wu members, and the single (Milk the Cow) was the only one where Cappa came up with a decent hook for the chorus.


Ghost kills this one:


one of the better beats, and probably the only song on the album that Cappa really carries all by himself:

Meth puts Cappa to shame on this:

and the album closer, which sounds like it could've been a great song if RZA and Ghost had made the effort to actually finish it instead of just letting it run on and on for 2 extra minutes
