The stories about this album are all over the place. Every member says something different about whether or not it's even happening.

which tells me it'll suck since they don't seem to even know what they wanna do
Last couple haven't been great, but hopefully they'll go out big
Digging: Matt Aspinwall/The Brave Little Abacus - Split
wu-tang albums from the past 3 or 4 years have been pre good so i think this will be good
Digging: Korn - The Serenity of Suffering
Ill remain optimistic
yeah i feel like if they put their all into this it could be amazing. can't wait to see these G's this summer.

WU-TANG WU-TANG WU-TANG
Raekwon and Ghostface are still pretty good.
GZA should be able to get his shit together for this, but it's questionable.
Method Man and RZA have totally fallen off. Inspectah Deck and U-God were always weak links, and I'm sure they'll continue that trend.
Two moderately strong pieces, a question mark, and four serious handicaps. I would be amazed if this turns out to be any good.
Inspectah Deck has so many classic verses on 36 Chambers, I'd hardly say he's a weak link
geasoftime listen to czarface
ins is not a weak link
Deck is amazing on 36 chambers seriously. Even on the second album.
Digging: ABC - The Lexicon of Love
No, no, no. I didn't mean on 36 Chambers. I was replying to oltna's comment about their solo output. I don't think that anyone stood out as a weak link on 36 Chambers, that's why it's 36 Chambers - it's the most consistent and organic group hiphop album ever.
I hadn't heard about Czarface, though. Checking it now.
Meth has always been weak solo but when he makes a guest appearance he steals the show.
Meth wasn't always weak solo. Tical is real decent. Wu-Tang's first round of albums delivered, as a group and solo. They've been struggling to recapture the spirit of the golden days ever since. Except for Ghostface, GZA, and Raekwon. But, honestly, GZA really never came close to putting out something like Liquid Swords again. Ghostface and Raekwon both matched their solo debuts later in their careers.
dude Deck rules, solo and otherwise
probably my 4th or 5th favorite member, but on their group stuff he might be in the top 3
Digging: Ulcerate - Shrines of Paralysis
GZA, Raekwon, Ghostface, Masta Killa, ODB, Method Man, RZA, Inspectah Deck, U-God imo
I forgot about Masta Killa earlier. His first two albums were really good.
idk I think Uncontrolled Substance is better than anything Masta Killa has released (and it's better than most of the stuff Method Man and ODB put out)
Uncontrolled is definitely a solid (read: 3.5) album, but it's his only decent album. Masta Killa had two really decent albums though - No Said Date (4.25) and Made in Brooklyn (3.5). Tical is a 4. But, Inspectah Deck might trump ODB and RZA. Return to the 36 Chambers is a light 3.5 for me and RZA's best solo work was the Ghost Dog ST which isn't very impressive anyways.
I'm going to listen to Czarface and Uncontrolled Substance tomorrow or the next day though, just to make sure that I didn't overlook him in some way. I haven't listened to any of these albums other than Cuban Linx and Liquid Swords in a few years, so my memory might not be as sharp as it should be.
No Said Date really didn't do it for you?
fuck off, wu-tang are more relevant than ever these days. and their careers haven't been this consistently great in years.
I'm gonna go make some popcorn. You guys want any popcorn?
andcas is a registered film buff and Wu-Tang expert

its a dec movie lol
andcas is fuking stupid
pls stfu dam u fukin suc hard
i consist of half this sites userbase
andcas has never even heard a pharrell album
I liked Man With The Iron Fists quite a bit. It was cheesy as hell and parts of it were bad but it was a light, fun movie IMO.
RZA's solo stuff is underrated though, and I think a lot of people overlook 6 Feet Deep. The Man With The Iron Fists soundtrack was pretty awesome, and his Bobby Digital stuff scores points because it's just supposed to be fun goofy hip-hop and succeeds. That stuff was never intended to be classic wu. Digi Snacks was pretty bad, but RZA's guest spots are almost always welcome additions to whatever track he's on. I find his delivery to be the most striking of the clan besides ODB's.
Raekwon is not good.
method man is by far the best all of the rest sound the same
lol troll harder
Inspektah Deck rules you fucknut.
Will go hard regardless.
Ghostface rules all of them. Hopefully this will be epic.
They are coming to my city this summer when I'm out of the country. I'm so mad.
Digging: Thy Catafalque - Meta
Gza is still my favorite.. if anything (in regards to his solo career), his production is just lacking. He desperately needs his cousin RZA in order to stay relevant.
