How come?

I love Wu Tang, but I'm with you on this. It's a classic and their most recognizable songs are on there, but I think if you took Wu Tang Forever and pared it down from a double album to like 10-13 songs, it would blow 36 chambers away easily. I still don't know why they chose to release a double album as their follow up to 36 chambers.

Paul's Boutique - A sampler's masterpiece and a total tribute to 70's music and disco produced by the Dust Brothers w/ DJ Hurricane

Check your head - Combined hip hop with alt. rock and jazz. Saw the introduction of Ad Rock, MCA, and Mike D playing their own instruments (Since they started as an NYC punk group). Also brought in Mario Caldato on Hammond B3 organ and a separated percussionist. Produced by Mario C. (I think)

Ill Communication - Pretty much straightforward 90's hip-hop with more of the group's instrumental creations to augment their sound.

Hello Nasty -Futuristic hip-hop with a definite outerspace feel. Legenary Mixmaster Mike on the decks.

To the Five Burroughs - Meh, haven't really listened to it, so I can't really say.

I had no idea. I haven't even listened to all of Paul's Boutique and I made this assumption. Now I'm going to have to listen to those. Thanks guys.
