Meth, Ghost And Rae – Wu-Massacre

Three variant covers, mine is #3… Not every track is great, but there’s just something about listening to this stuff that just fills me with happy. They just get it, you know? We’re lucky to have them.

Wu-Tang Clan – Legend Of The Wu-Tang (Greatest Hits)

I got this for $5 at our crappy HMV, on the premise that since I love their first record (Enter The Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers), and I don’t currently own any more albums by them (I used to a long time ago, but sold them off for some dumb reason)… Anyway, I figured this might be a way to hear some stuff off their other records.

I can’t stop listening to this CD.

I love all the personalities, the different voices and approaches. The music is damn funky while simultaneously aggressive, a lithe jungle animal prowling around. The references and mythology to the old samurai and kung-fu movies please me greatly – I’m a huge fan of those old movies myself and have quite a large collection of them here at the house. I also really like that, for all their posturing and promising to kick my ass, many of their songs are intelligently written and conceived and actually have a message. Oh, and I like the sense, while I’m listening, like it’s all just gonna go crazy at any moment. On the edge of losing their shit at all times yet totally in control, totally fearless. I love that.

I copied this CD for the car for my lovely wife, to listen to on her commute to work. It’s true! We’d been talking about them… correction, I was probably talking AT her about them, as I always do with music, and she expressed an actual interest in hearing more. When she got home, I asked what she thought, and she said she liked how it was almost like jazz, all the layers, everything happening at any moment in a song. YES! That too! Damn I love that woman.

I need to get back the albums. I won’t even try to collect all of the side projects and the massive library of albums that spun off this main act, but I would definitely like to get the rest of the main studio albums back. This CD has whetted my appetite for sure.

For anyone who cares, here’s the collection of brilliance on this CD:

C.R.E.A.M.
Method Man (Skunk Mix)
Protect Ya Neck [Bloody Version]
Wu-Tang Clan Ain’t Nuthing Ta F’ Wit
Can It All Be So Simple
Shame On A Nigga
Da Mystery Of Chessboxin’
Reunited
It’s Yourz
Triumph
Gravel Pit
Protect Ya Neck (The Jump Off)
Sucker M.C.’s
Uzi (Pinky Ring)
Shaolin Worldwide
Diesel

Listening to this all the way through is a damn workout, but it’s completely worth it.
