Default Wu-Tang Clan - 8 Diagrams

Opinions?

For me aptitude has been lost with maturity, albeit all the R.I.P O.D.B **** is getting old. He's ****in' dead, stop lamenting him and scraping every last drop out of him.

What are you referring to exactly about the whole "aptitude has been lost with maturity"? This isn't the first time it has been brought up but what the hell.....can't people honor the dead anymore? why is it always related to squeezing more money out of the situation instead of it just being that they miss him and are honoring them. They don't want him to be forgotten.

The more and more I listen to it I appreciate it more and the direction there were going in with this album. I don't think it's for everyone that was expecting Wu to come back hard and heavy. You can tell they matured a bit from the same old same old in your face street crap. Even though I love Wu when they are like that but it's nice to hear a change of pace.

They are losing their zeal.

Maybe so, but they should let the past be past. Just because someone has a moose doesn't mean they automatically have to become a porn star.

you are generalizing too much and comparing apples to oranges...but w/e


and they aren't losing their zeal to me...just trying something slightly different. they have a harder "street" album coming out soon, atleast that's what I gathered from RZA's interview.

I didn't hear about the "street" album. But I look forward to any Wu-Tang album.

Default Wu-Tang in Denver

Yo listen. If you have any doubts about the current state of Wu-Tang come to the show at the Ogden in Denver on the 20th. I saw Ghostface there with Hip Hop live about a month ago and, no ****, it was one of the best shows Ive seen! Wu-Tang will be even better!

Okay, I was wrong about the "street" album....I think Rza was referring to Gza's new solo album that's more in the "street" vein.

the album is interesting because it's definitely not Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) or Fishscale or anything like that. It's definitely a mood album. its tough because sometimes you're loving what RZA's doing and then there are other times where you feel that RZA is over-experimenting or something. if youre open minded to hearing RZA's experiments in this "different" Wu-Tang album, then you'll love 8 Diagrams. If, like Ghostface or Raekwon, you'd rather hear the good old 36 chambers, 8 diagrams is not the best Wu album for you. for me, there's a little too much singing and melody, but it's good. not a big fan of the quitars. also there seems to be a lack of unity as a Clan. however, RZA (and everyone else) keep coming up with new sounds and at this point are really unpredictable, so here's 8 diagrams.
and **** the haters the Clan loved Russell Tyrone Jones because he was their brother. the whole "life changes" stuff is not a marketing scheme. they simply want him to be remembered as one of the best in the game. rest in power, dirt mcgirt
