Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Spike TV's fresh new animated mini-series Afro Samurai stars Hollywood superstar Samuel L. Jackson as a smoked-out samurai, out for blood and revenge on the man who killed his father. Think Kill Bill meets Shaft as told through the eyes of world-renowned Japanese anime creator Takashi Okazaki. This soundtrack features a score entirely produced by the RZA himself. Guest appearances include Q-Tip, Talib Kweli, Slick Rick, Big Daddy Kane and members of the Wu-Tang Clan.

Amazon.com

Given RZA's work on both the Ghost Dog and Kill Bill soundtracks, it's no surprise to see the venerable Wu-Tang producer tackling Afro Samurai. However, unlike the previous albums, where RZA more or less created scores, the Afro Samurai soundtrack is a mix of instrumental and conventional rap songs, featuring an eclectic mix of MCs, including Talib Kweli, GZA, True Master, and RZA himself. There are some strange tracks here, none more so than the maple syrupy R&B songs featuring Stone Mecca or Baby. The instrumentals, removed from the context of the movie, are themes rather than fully fleshed out songs but a few, like "Afro's Father Fight" are tantalizingly fast, furious, and funky. The rap songs hold some surprises, such as Q-Tip popping up on "Just a Lil Dude," or veteran Big Daddy Kane sparking off the dramatic "Cameo Afro." Fans of RZA's past albums, especially his Bobby Digital projects, will find Afro Samurai to their liking, but for those expecting a classic Wu-Tang album, they might be left lost in the oft-jarring mix of sounds. --Oliver Wang

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Soundtrack Project RZA Has Ever Done February 2, 2007
Format:Audio CD
If the rating system was 1 to 10 (10 being a classic, 1 being trash), the review number I would give is 7.8. The biggest draw is (of course) the RZA produced tracks (except for like two songs), the album strikes me as being part soundtrack and part songs inspired by. The instrumentals for the anime are mixed between the vocal hip-hop tracks. RZA raps on three tracks, one of them being the theme for the show ("Afro Theme"). Other than "Afro Theme", I don't believe that there are any other rap tracks in the actual show. The instrumentals from the anime are alright, they are thankfully short and are diverse. Most of the instrumentals are not so much hip-hop influenced, instead they sound like blaxploitation movie soundtracks or like the Fight Club soundtrack from the Dust Brothers. Also, snippets of dialogue from the cartoon are nicely utilized to stamp the project with the Wu/RZA signature sound. The favorite instrumental of mine is "The Empty 7 Theme". I don't think most of the instrumentals are so experimental that I would consider them replayable like the Fight Club soundtrack is.

The rap tracks are very good. We get to hear Talib Kweli and Q-Tip rap on a RZA track. We get to hear Big Daddy Kane bless a RZA track. Those tracks are awesome, the favorite is "Certified Samurai" feat. Talib, Lil Free(?) & Suga Bang. But we get reminded that even a RZA-produced beat can't rescue a song with a horrible hook, like "Who Is Tha Man" (ft. Rev. William Burk). I'm not a Rev. William Burk fan, in fact I think his lyrics need work. Actually, that is a gripe I have with the album, not enough Wu-Tang representation. I'm not talking affiliates, I want original Wu-members. Only GZA appears (on the track with Big Daddy Kane). However, this is just a RZA project. Which leads me to my next issue.

5.0 out of 5 stars RZA Presents: Afro Samurai Soundtrack March 3, 2007
Format:Audio CD
To tell you the truth, I actually had no idea how this album would turn out musically at all. I am really familiar with RZA's different styles of production, but I was eager to see how this would turn out.

The production on this album is what caught my ear the most. If your a Wu-Tang Clan fan, you can hear some of that style integrated into this album, but one thing that shocked me was that there was SO much versatility! You got some bangers like, "Certified Samurai", "Just A Lil Dude", "Cameo Afro" and so on, then you got R&B type tracks like "Oh", "The Walk" and "Baby". Hearing RZA produce these R&B tracks lets you see how good of a producer he actually is. Instead of sticking to one style of production in this album, he approached it from quite a few different angles to keep you listening throughout the album. This album shows RZA's true production talent.

The lyrics are on this album are also great, appearances from quite a few different artists. Most are Wu-Related, but you have some like Big Daddy Kane, Q-Tip, Stone Mecca. But mainly, most appearances are Wu-Affiliated which is of course good!

I definately reccomend this album to RZA fans, Wu-Tang Clan fans and the real hip-hop fan. You shouldn't be dissapointed with this album cause its so versatile!

Check it out!

Peace.

4.0 out of 5 stars Every Good Hero Needs Theme Music... {4 Stars} January 31, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I'll admit that I didn't know much about Afro Samurai or this soundtrack as little as two months ago. I was flipping through channels one day when I saw this anime joint with a black samurai on Spike TV. Being that I'm an anime junkie, coupled with the fact that the soundtrack was dope, I decided to watch for a while. That while turned out to be an entire half hour and from then on I've been hooked. I immediately ran to my computer to see if this show was new, old, released on DVD -- basically to get whatever info I could get on it. I saw that the soundtrack was going to be released and I immediately circled the date on my calendar. I must say that the end results are actually quite good. The production is solid, though it isn't typical RZA. Honestly, I was expecting more Kill Bill type production, but this is strictly RZA flavor with a more straightforward asian theme. There are also some collaborators here that I'd never expected to hear rhyming over a RZA beat (Big Daddy Kane, Talib Kweli, Q Tip, etc) along with the usual WU Tang affiliates (GZA, 60 Second Assassin, Berretta 9, True Master, CCF Division, etc). Personally, the instrumentals do the job for me. Some of them aren't hip hop at all, but they're still great. To me, the vocal tracks are an added bonus to an already great album. RZA also includes four Bobby Digital "bonus" tracks (#21 - 24) that are decent.

As far as flaws, there really aren't many. You could say that the length of the disc (25 joints at about an hour) may be an issue, but I'm a RZA fanatic, so I loved the it. Also, "Oh" and "The Walk" are nice slow jams from Stone Mecca, but they seem kind of out of place on this album due to the abundance of hardcore, boom bap joints.

5.0 out of 5 stars RZA Samurai
Afro Samurai soundtrack is pretty good. Plus it's nice to hear the Rza churning out some extra quality beats. So if you can't choose the sword, choose Afro Samurai.
