Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Unlike their predecessors, who each released about an album a year, Master P and the Wu-Tang Clan dominated the mid to late 1990s with a hailstorm of discs that saturated the rap marketplace. RZA, the Wu's über-producer, added to the storm with Bobby Digital in Stereo, the soundtrack for a straight-to-video film directed, produced, and written by RZA under the alter ego Bobby Digital. Whether he's able to compete with Master P on the cinematic front remains to be seen, but the project surely confirms RZA's mastery of the production studio and of the hip-hop domain in general. Without sounding too threatening or gangsta, RZA--er, Digital--lays down street-lethal beats and rhythms that resonate with a futuristic cyberpunk theme. And while the songs are fairly free of melody, there are plenty of atmospheric keyboard noises, sound effects, and samples to keep things pumping. --Jon Wiederhorn

5.0 out of 5 stars RZA - As Bobby Digital In Stereo December 25, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Well here it is 1998 and we get a first SOLO album by the RZA. He is already known for being as one of the best Hip Hop producers so now people are wanting to see what sort of album he could cook up. Well this one some people were like "What kinda stuff is this"? It sounded different. RZA was experimenting with different production methods. This doesnt sound like the original Wu-Tang group stuff your used to hearing so notice that, but let me break it down for you.

Lyrics, wow this is where you get to really see RZA shine though. His lyrics are SO on point its crazy! He drops straight knowledge all the way through the album. A couple funny tracks like " Kiss Of A Black Widow" and "Domestic Violence" but even those songs are on point! Lyrically, RZA would outshine anyone who spit on th e album. Before hearing his solo stuff, if you ever said "RZA is alright", nah check this album out then you will see how good his lyrics can really be. Every single track he drops ILL rhymes. Lyrically, this album is hott!

Production, heres the crazy stuff. He experimented with a different production method. Not the normal types of beats he usually cooks up for other Wu member or group stuff. What is amazing, is how great RZA can make a song and album be. He can give a album a CERTAIN vibe ALL THE WAY THROUGH! Its crazy! This album has a certain vibe all the way through, I cant tell you which "sort" of vibe because its too hard to think of one, but there is one trust me. The beats on this album are off the hook though. They are different and unique, so check this album out NOW!

This album is different, but the lyrics are hott, production is hott and thats all you need for a good album right. Classic RZA material right here. Probably his best solo effort out.

5.0 out of 5 stars B.O.B.B.Y. December 11, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Wu-Tang Clan's leader and producer steps out on his solo effort RZA As Bobby Digital In Stereo with self-produced well rounded LP for the clansman. Advanced off-keyed production from the chambers shows the maturity and identity of their musical style on "Unspoken Word". "Airwaves" is a good tune that sounds as if transmitted through radio airwaves with a good mix. It seems no matter how many remake a song "Love Jones" is a good example of lyrical content on sexuality gives depths to RZA and this album. For a conventional 36 chamber sound "Mantis" featuring Masta Killa & Tekitha with sword swinging lyrics. The slow one two kick with eerie keys, "Holocaust (Silkworm)" featuring Ghostface Killah, Holocaust, Dr. Doom & Ms. Roxy brought have a head nodding song. "Terrorist" was handled by Killarmy & Black Knights without a verse or words from RZA for this up-tempo track. The off-keyed piano with the beat that's featured on the interludes "Handwriting On The Wall" featuring Rass Kass was equally effective by both emcees / rappers. Production by clan's member Inspectah Deck "Kiss Of A Black Widow" featuring Ol' Dirty Bastard added to the album's effectiveness. RZA goes after his woman and her ways on "Domestic Violence". This album ended on a high note with "Daily Routine" featuring Baretta Nine as they speak of their everyday life in a conscious effort. It may be overwhelming with a majority of this album had featured artists without completely showing the alter ego of Bobby Digital.

5.0 out of 5 stars Near a master piece January 25, 2006
Format:Audio CD
The RZA is one of the best rappers in the world. Like his name, his words cut you like a razor. No one can match his flow, its amazing the way he can deliver a rap. As a plus, RZA has some of the best unknown rappers on his cds; His beats are awesome. There are some dull spots on the cd, but its few and far between. The Wu and RZA should get more credit for what they do. I own everything RZA touchs, just because its always worth it. Unlike most rappers in todays industry. Im so sick of turning on Mtv, and seeing fake rappers millions of dollars for generic rap tunes. RZA, The Wu, and Wu family will always be better then anything rap will ever produce.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superhero chic. December 7, 2001
Format:Audio CD
The 'Bobby Digital' persona allows presiding Wu-Tang genius RZA have fun with various stereotypes of black (masculine) experience - thug, loverman, gangsta, violent husband, superhero, persecuted minority, wide boy etc. 'Fun' is the wrong word - in the Wu-Tang universe, comedy, paranoia and terror are synonymous concepts. Like most (supposedly) solo Wu-Tang projects, 'Bobby Digital' is more ascetic than the Clan, the thin, thudding beats fretting at your anxious imagination, overlaid with shrieking violins or brittle, menacing synths reminiscent of horror movies by Carpenter or Argento. This tense urban atmosphere is seen to best effect on 'Airwaves', 'NYC Everything', 'Mantis' and 'Kiss of a Black Widow', the latter making brilliantly creepy use of a looping Portishead sample. 'My Lovin' is Digi' has a spooky prog-rock setting. The standout track, 'Domestic Violence', plays like a precursor to Eminem's 'Stan', in this case vitriolic misogyny hurled with brutal articulacy.
But, to emphasise the violence and comedy is to overlook the Wu-Tang's mastery of the laidback, R'n'B 'love-song' (I use the term advisedly), although the sweet 'Love Jones' has its own demons. The Wu-Tang multiplicity of musical voices extends to language on 'Bobby Digital', with four 'Slow Grind' come-ons in German, 'African', French and Italian. Blood-rushing and (literally) stunning.
