Editorial Reviews

A watershed release in the history of the underground hip-hop movement, Think Differently Music: Wu-Tang Meets The Indie Culture reflects the convergence of Wu-Tang and the indie hip-hop culture. As ambitious in scope as it is creatively visionary, the album consists of Wu-Tang stylistic sensibility and production paired with some of the finest (as well as commercially viable) underground East and West Coast hip-hop lyricists. Babygrande. 2005.

Now to the review: 'Wu Tang Meets Indie Cultre' is a compilation album put together by Dreddy Kruger, an affliate of the Wu Tang Clan and a part time rapper (you might remember his fairly bad verse on 'Graveyard Chamber' from the Gravediggaz' debut album). The concept was bringing Wu Tang affiliated rappers/producers and the best of the hip hop underground together for some crazy collaberations that you can't help but think were made to happen (whoever got GZA & Ras Kass together on the same track, let alone 2, deserves a medal). It's also interesting to read about how each song came to be, which is inclded in the booklet. The result is a unique blend of the signiture Wu Tang feel and the top voices of todays indie rap scene, in an album that anyone who likes the guest list should check out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Think Indie...Think Wu...Think Differently May 27, 2006
By M. Budd
Format:Audio CD
This, the newest of many more Wu albums to come, is definitely something different and something that should be added to your Wu-Tang collection. I know that everyone who gets it will be pleased. Bronze Nazareth, the Michigan-born Wu producer, is definitely the "soul" of this album, producing 9 of the 19 songs. His soulful vibe and grimey beats is something that has been missing in Hip Hop. I know that he's going to make a huge impact in the game. La's making a comeback after a few years off radar, can't wait for his album. Of course the vets do their thang, as usual. There are some other newer voices that added to this classic compilation. It's been a while since a credible mass collab was successful. Don't pass this up!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Potential Not Met, But Still Dope (4 Stars) October 18, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Dreddy Kruger Presents Think Differently Music: Wu-Tang Meets The Indie Culture is an interesting album that blends the talents of Wu-Tang producers and artists with some of the biggest names in independent hip-hop. Just the unique lineup alone made me want to pick this one up. The results vary, but for the most part the album is pretty good. There are about 14 songs (19 if you include skits and interludes), and I have to say that out of 14, 9 are good. There are some very interesting collaborations like GZA & Rass Kass (Lyrical Swords), RZA & MF Doom (Biochemical Equation), and Aesop Rock & Del The Funkee Homosapien (Preservation). Production is handled by RZA, Bronze Nazareth, Allah Mathematics, Preservation, DJ Noize, and Fred One. The album also includes a bonus disc. The bonus disc includes remixes, exclusives, and interviews from a few of the associated artists. It's worth checking out.

The only issue I have with this album is that some of the production is forgettable. I'm not calling it bad, but there are some tracks that you'll forget as soon as they stop playing like "Black Dawn". Aside from a few forgettable tracks, the rest of the album is pretty good.

Wu-Tang Meets Indie Culture is definitely tight. With names like Aesop Rock, GZA, Del The Funkee Homosapien, Ras Kass, RZA, C-Rayz Walz, J-Live, MF Doom, and Vordul Mega, I feel like there was some out of this stratosphere type of potential that was fielded here but it didn't quite mesh like I was hoping it would. But don't let that change your mind about picking this up, it's definitely dope. If you're looking for mainstream alternatives, this should definitely do the trick. Highly reccomended.

Standout Tracks: Listen, Give It Up, O.D.B. Tribute (My Favorite), Still Grimey, Lyrical Swords, Think Differently, Fragments, and Preservation

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't miss this one May 18, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I heard a couple tracks off of this album when listening to Pandora and decided to pick it up. The first CD I've bought in a long time, I'm very very pleased with it. Almost all tracks are great and fans of the Wu and their old ways should not miss this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Was Already Thinking Differently November 22, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is a solid effort from the mind of Dreddy Kruger. Big Up Dreddy Kruger for his concept and idea to get some of the best Underground MC to work with Wu-Tang to create an original refreshing CD to save Hip-Hop from mainstream evil and the rape of pop culture. I notice the people who rated this CD low aren't true hip-hop heads and probably prefer the radio pop MCs.

This CD is very mentally stimulating and probably not what most would listen to in a club. This CD is pretty grimey and real through. Everyone that collabrated on this project, Rock Marciano of The UN (he killed it on Think Differently, "cause for he who feel offended, a beat down can't be prevented"), Vast Aire, Vordul Mega, MF Doom, Sean Price, C-Rayz Walz, Casual, J-Live, RA The Rugged Man, Aesop Rock, Del Tha Homosapien, Tradegy Khadafi, Planet Asia and Littles all held it down on the MIC with tite verses, punchlines, and flows. But I also thought, Ras Kass came the srongest and killed it on both tracks he blessed, Lyrical Swords and Verses.

The tracks that shined to me were Lyrical Swords, Slow Blues, Think Differently, Biochemical Equations (MF DOOM the Great and Bobby Digi), Street Corners, Verses, Give It Up, Still Grimey, Listen, Black Dawn and Preservation.

One thing I enjoyed about purchasing this CD, the insert explains how each track came about from the vision to the finish product. Slap in the face to RZA for what he said about MF Doom. I was surprised he didn't know who MF was in 2005?!?! Now on Biochemical Equation MF Doom come with his usual flow, but only received one verse while RZA had two. The beat was what kept the chemistry together on that track, lol.

SUPPORT! ENJOY!
