Review Summary: The best and greatest rap album ever from a group as immortal as God himself.

Wu-Tang Clan, as a rule, are most likely the greatest and most influential rap group to emerge from 90's American hip-hop. Lyrically, they are the greatest on Earth. Covering topics mostly related to doing drugs and committing violent acts of a criminal nature, their music is renowned for being very astute and profound in the sense that it is very memorable and infectious. The beats are sick and as ill as a grandma with AIDS and in general, their style is imitable. In most circumstances, their music is very special for a number of reasons - instrumentals are sound and well-produced and the beats are superb.

The highlights, in short, is the whole fucking album. Everything presented is in a nice, neat package. From a production perspective, everything is structured very well and the instrumentation is perfect. There are no weak tracks and everything sounds perfectly composed and balanced. From a lyrical standpoint, the music is of an excellent standard, incorporating jazzy elements with typical beats and good musical sensibilities. Every member shines, particularly Method Man, Ghostface Killer, Ole' Dirty Bastard, GZA and Raekwon. The rest of the group are immense in their lyrical verses. The songs are catchy and memorable and in most ways very well made. From the music, to the lyrics to the general vibes presented, every track is great. Highlights include the insurmountably brilliant Method Man, the immortal songs such as C.R.E.A.M and of course the immeasurable sounds of Clan In Da Front, Bring Da' Ruckus and of course Protect Your Neck. Whilst the band dipped in quality later on in their career, their dominance in the rap scene during the 90's is strong. Their follow-up albums were strong (in particular Wu-Chronicles and Wu-Tang Forever, as well as Iron Flag) featuring many elements of superb instruments and lyrics, focusing on many subjects such as philosophy, the prison system and of course drugs and society in America at the time. In terms of just how damn good the group are all you have to do is look at their history over the course of their tenure in the business. They mean business too. Their music is immortal, brilliant, timeless and most certainly classic.

To conclude, buy the album. Fucck, buy them all. Because they rule. In terms of just how super they are, all you have to do is listen to Protect Your Neck, or any track they did during the mid 90's. An amazing group with some of the best murderers in the business. Watch for the police as they will bust you - so smoke your drugs and throw your mobile phones in the bin, as these guys don't piss about. Homicide, drugs, money, bitches and badass behaviour. Listen, enjoy and learn the words to impress your girlfriend. Peace and love. Respect the Wu.

I think bone are the best in terms of how they all work together as a unit as well as their solo careers and how much material they all have but NWA are probably the most influential cus them as a group and the members influenced everyone after them
