Tearz has the best beat, but the lyrics are a bit corny, though I kinda like them exactly because of that. So Tearz.

Tuomas, Monday, 23 February 2009 22:59 (nine years ago) Permalink

yeah i just got this oxford american comp that had the track RZA sampled for "Tearz", old soul song, pretty awesome

I love how the beat on Tearz goes all dubby in the end, and the song continues as an instrumental for like a minute or so after the vocal is over.

memo from norv turner (omar little), Monday, 23 February 2009 23:16 (nine years ago) Permalink

I puts the needle to the groove, I gets rude
And I'm forced to fuck it up
Style carries like a pickup truck
Across the clear blue yonder, sea to shining sea
I slam tracks like quarterbacks sacks from LT
Now why try and test the rebel INS?
Blessed since the birth, I earth-slam your vest
I bakes the cake, then take the cake and eat it too
With my crew, we head state to state

otoh there's no way to answer this, but on the other hand the answer is protect ya neck

relistening to this just now to decide, probably Protect ya neck though.

it's "can it be all so simple" vs. chessboxin' for me

leaning towards chessboxin' cuz it's so representative

鬼の手 (Edward III), Thursday, 26 February 2009 00:14 (nine years ago) Permalink

The other poll helps narrow this down...I mean this is not an easy choice but just look at Protect Ya Neck: you get the "Smokin' Joe Frazier" verse from Deck, RZA's explosive little tangent, GZA's cool summary at the end, and ODB's best-ever single verse performance ("You bite my style I'll bite your BBZZZ BRZZZ RRZZZZ")...

Of course then, 7th Chamber:

Raekwon - "Champion gear that I rock, you get your boots knocked"
Method Man - "I be that insane nigga from the psycho ward"
Inspectah Deck - "I leave the mic in body bags"
Ghostface - "Slammin a hype-ass verse til ya head burst"
RZA - "Ya gettin stripped from ya garments, boy, run ya jewels"
GZA - "My Clan is thick like plaster"
ODB - "Are you a warrior? Killer? Slicin shit like a samurai"

"Chessboxin'" in 3rd, some of my favorite shit on here but I dunno - I can do every line of the above two tracks in my head without even thinking about it, they've just completely woven their way into my imagination. What a great album.

Doctor Casino, Thursday, 26 February 2009 00:16 (nine years ago) Permalink

some of my favorite lyrics on the alb are on "protect ya neck" but I gotta vote for words + music, and "chessboxin'" has such a freaky instrumental track, it shifts like sand

鬼の手 (Edward III), Thursday, 26 February 2009 00:23 (nine years ago) Permalink

"bring da ruckus" just because it's a great lead-off to an indestructible album.

paper plans (tipsy mothra), Thursday, 26 February 2009 00:43 (nine years ago) Permalink

(also because i love the word "ruckus")

In defense of "Method Man": references Hall and Oates, The Rolling Stones, Mary Poppins, Dr. Seuss, and so many things I can't identify it all. It's like an encyclopedia of random shit that I also have trapped forever in my own brain.

went for clan in da front for the line about shitty drawers and hampers but i could easily have gone with any other track

vain_bowers, Thursday, 26 February 2009 08:49 (nine years ago) Permalink

Proteck yo neck! Of course its dope but also because mind is blown first time hearing these Wu-tang guys.

carne asada, Thursday, 26 February 2009 14:40 (nine years ago) Permalink

This guy I rode the bus with in high school had a dubbed tape of this that was mysteriously missing "7th Chamber Pt. II" and "Protect Ya Neck," so when I finally did hear them, the former felt phony and the latter was this total revelation...so in a funny way the same experience, but not as the first time hearing these Wu guys - but having one of their greatest treasures kept hidden extra long.

has there ever been a 7th chamber poll? i would go pt. 2 without hesitation.

I mean, if 7th Chamber II is so definitive, how come it's not 7th Chamber I?

pt.1 goes better with killa tape intro.

Clan in da front for me, Genius at his best, plus quintessential RZA beat = genius. As has been said earlier on this thread, it would change month on month.

this is a poll where i start agreeing with every post, like "oh yeah totally method man is the best"..."no wait actually bring da ruckus rules!" etc etc

i ended up voting for chessboxin just because i still vividly remember fab 5 freddy introducing it on the saturday yo mtv raps and being like woooooah dude what IS this?

There is something to the dream-world version of a succession of unstoppably great, not-a-dud-on-them Wu group albums, containing nothing but the best cuts from all the solo records. It's basically the ideal "what if the Beatles had stayed together" scenario, applied to the Wu.

Of course then you lose all the great side tangents, digressions, and general fabric that lets the best of the solo Wu albums have their own distinctive feel. I wouldn't want to have to give up "Killah Hills 10304" or "The Stomp" or whatever...

Doctor Casino, Friday, 27 February 2009 14:52 (nine years ago) Permalink

I can't imagine why anyone would want a Wu-World other than the one we got (maybe minus a little of the post-97 flood of inferior releases and plus a bit more consistent productions on the second round of solo albums.)

I actually feel like the track works.....except for GZA. As a new jack swing joint it's pretty good, but gza isn't the right rapper for it at all. He's laconic in a very dry way, and not so smooth. Gimme Heavy D.

The Reverend (rev), Friday, 27 February 2009 21:21 (nine years ago) Permalink

where's the Ladiez Love Raheem or whatever RZA's shitty solo joint was called

Comic Book Morbius (Shakey Mo Collier), Friday, 27 February 2009 21:28 (nine years ago) Permalink

i dont *want* a wu-world other than the one we got, and of course its inevitable that they were going to go solo (even when 36 came out they were talking about it), but i wouldnt mind one where the wu were still as much of a real cohesive unit like on the first album. i wouldnt have minded if they all just went back to being only group members after the first batch of solo albums actually, but that would never happen for obv reasons.
