Honorable Mention #17
Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) (1993)
I like to consider myself one of those guys who have a more diverse taste in music than most people, but I really don’t. I hate R&B, country, jazz, reggae, soul, funk, do-wop, swing and most classical. So really my tastes don’t go much further than metal, some rock, some alternative, a little techno and very little hip-hop. I don’t think I even own ten hip-hop albums. But five of those albums are from the Wu-Tang Clan and two of those albums are incredible. The debut I love for the gritty, underground darkness. The best songs are any featuring RZA or Ghostface Killah, so it’s natural that my favorite song from them of all time is their duet; Tearz
. The massive follow up could be better. Being a double album had it been trimmed down to one disc it probably would’ve been (or if it had of only been disc one with a few tracks off disc two). But like with all double album it gets to be a bit much by the end. This album is all Ghostface. Anything he’s on is fucking incredible. I really should check his solo stuff out. I’m not going to get too much further into analyzing this work or anything because I don’t have too much knowledge of this genre.
