Review Summary: Best Wu-Tang remix Album to date? Check.0 of 1 thought this review was well written
Many of you must have heard of Wu-Tang Clan or their music. Why? Because they are clearly one of the most influential rap groups of the 90's, and with classics such as Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), why shouldn't they?
Now fast-forward to the 21st century, where mashups are becoming the next big thing. With Wu-Tang vs The Beatles: Enter The Magical Mystery Chamber, it's not a constant mashup. See the amazing thing about this album, is it uses backtracks from one of musics most influential groups, the Beatles.
With classics being re-done such as C.R.E.A.M, (it's better on this album then on 36 Chambers, i'll guiltily admit) you're sure to find something you enjoy if you are a Wu lover such as myself.
And it not only includes official Wu songs, but also a few songs from solo albums by a few members. Take for example the song "City High" off of The Movement by Inspectah Deck. It's a great song yes, but it never really had that spark that takes a song from mediocre/okay - greatness and memorable. Well, the creators of this album fixed that issue. "City High" on this album is amazing, as are most of the songs on this album.
Did I mention the "Baby i got your money" female chorus In Got Your Money, is still there? And in "Run" you can't help but enjoy the backtrack. You'll find most backtracks save for a rare few match perfectly with the Wu-Tang's catchy hooks and flow with rhymes.
While changing every song's sound, the true essence of the Clan is still there, and that is why this album deserves a 4, and clocking the album at over an hour, it's truly something worth investing in. The replay value is as high with this as any clan release.
Recommended Tracks: C.R.E.A.M, Got Your Money, Uh-Huh, Run, Criminology, Daytona 500, and City High
