Given the uneven career of Wu-Tang Clan, ranging from undeniable classics like Enter The Wu-Tang 36 Chambers to weak (at best) efforts like Iron Flag, compiling a greatest hits package is bound to present some problems for its creators. The biggest question to answer: what can you offer to both people satisfied only owning their introduction, 36 Chambers, and those looking for an introduction to the group?

While creating a comparison to 36 Chambers would be impossible, Legend of the Wu-Tang: Wu-Tang Clan's Greatest Hits (BMG) serves a dual purpose: both as a Wu-Tang primer for the uninitiated and necessity for the diehard fan. Predictably, Legend draws heavily from the group's seminal debut 36 Chambers. Few groups, including Wu-Tang itself, would be able to top the success of 36 Chambers and it contributes nearly half the songs on Legend. To sweeten the deal for owners of 36 Chambers, alternate mixes of "Protect Ya Neck" and "Method Man" are provided. While the former is virtually indistinguishable from the original, the latter replaces the original with alternate verses and proves to be a highlight of the album.

In addition to the usual suspects from the "other three albums" - crowd bangers "Triumph," "Gravel Pit," etc. -- three more obscure songs previously released on non-Wu albums show up. The group sleeps through "Diesel" from the Soul in the Hole soundtrack, but fares slightly better on "Shaolin Worldwide" from the soundtrack to Next Friday and a cover of Run-D.M.C.'s "Sucker M.C.s" from 1997's In the Beginning...There Was Rap compilation.

In a perfect world, 36 Chambers goes the Ready to Die/Illmatic route and gets re-issued with remixes and rarities. But as it stands, Legend provides a solid overview of the Wu's career to date. Just make sure 36 Chambers is in your collection already.

I do now know how exactly to express how much I love this album; the only thing I wish I could do to improve it would be to make it even longer. Listening to Wu-Tang Clan is simultaneously inspiring and depressing. Depressing because the quality of hip hop from other performers who AREN'T the Wu-Tang Clan is so terrible -- just compare the 12-year old "36 Chambers" album to 50cent's latest, ridiculous effort, and see how the Wu demolish any new hip hop today -- and also depressing because it isn't all that likely that there will be more Wu-Tang albums, especially since they no longer have the incomprable Ol' Dirty Bastard (R.I.P.). Inspiring, because Wu-Tang Clan is quite simply the greatest hip hop collective of all time (at least in my opinion. Also inspiring, because fifty years from now Wu-Tang Clan will be recognized as true artists and talents, where as most rappers of their own and the next generation will be rightly looked upon as a trend or a joke.

I love all the tracks, but my favorites are:

Track 1: C.R.E.A.M. = I particularly like how the song starts -- quietly, with O.D.B. warming up, and then BOOM, that classic beat. Utterly awesome.

Track 2: Method Man (skunk mix) = I would prefer the original that appeared in the 36 Chambers album, but this remix is still good, and showcases Method Man's lyrical ability

Track 3: Protect Ya Neck (bloody version) = this is a really good posse song, in the "Scenario" (T.C.Q.) vein

Track 4: Wu-Tang Clan Ain't Nuhting ta F' Wit: Another awesome posse song, that features a lot of Wu members on the mic

Track 6: Shame on a Nigga: Just listen to O.D.B.'s verses and if you're like me, you'll be like DAAAAYUMMMM....
