Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Wu-Chronicles compiles 14 tracks of previously released Wu-tinged madness, along with a pair of new tracks. Most of these feature Wu family members as guests on tracks from the Notorious B.I.G. ("The What," featuring Method Man), Mobb Deep ("Right Back at You," featuring Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, and Big Noyd), and Tha Alkaholiks ("Hip Hop Drunkies," featuring Ol' Dirty Bastard). There are also killer cuts by Wu stalwarts such as Genius/GZA, Raekwon, RZA, and Inspectah Deck. Though some hardcore fans may deem this release redundant because most of these tracks have seen the light of wax before, they will still want to own it for the convenience factor, the ultra-cool artwork, and those two new offerings: "Latunza Hit," by the Wu-Syndicate, is an infectious downtempo track infused with a solid bass groove and misty-mountaintop atmosphere, while "'96 Recreation (Demo)" features longtime Wu cohort Cappadonna along with RZA and Ol' Dirty Bastard, all three dropping heavy verses over an eerie, rumbling beat. --Spencer Abbott

5.0 out of 5 stars Indeed a great album May 6, 2000
By Rod
Format:Audio CD
This album has the same elements of every Wu album. Depth, Beats, and MCing all put into one nice package. Although all these songz (except 2) were previously released, many Wu fans to NOT own all these albums. This was a great way of bringing Wu back into the world of music, shine light on some members we see less often, and entertain us with some killer cuts. My reccomendation: BUY THIS ALBUM

5.0 out of 5 stars When hip hop was about beats & rhymes! July 13, 2003
By Teck9
Format:Audio CD
Well, all the songs are onpoint thats why i gave 5 starts but i have and own every single song here... My favorites ? Genious "cold world" and mobb deep's "right back at you" the best two tracks there but the rest is tight as well! Worth your money ? yes, if you haven't heard early wu and want to get schooled buy it but if your hooked on that ludacris trash along with ja rule,nelly,gay z,fabulos,bowow...Then, don't even bother ! This is strictly for long time fans or who ever feel true hip hop... Don't foget where it came from, son !!!

more knowledge to your wig. The songs with AZ and Ras Kass are treats and then getting The What, and the first two bangers from Genius' and Rae's albums respectively, plus the demo song and the cold world remix, and the jams with heltah skeltah, cocoa brovas and alkoholiks which were all dope and this is just a slamming compilation. you cant go wrong with this album, period. I figure if youre getting wu people from others' albums, though, not getting Pac's Got My Mind Made Up w/perhaps my favorite Meth vers ever was too bad, but you can't get everything, just think how many damn songs these guys have all made now, and they came out w. protect yr neck just 6 years back!

This is an amazing cd. There is no debate on whether or not this cd kicks @$$, the dabate is on whether or not this is worth gettin if you own sum of da songz. Well I had never heard these songs before and this is a good buy. It is just the thing to tide us wu-fanz over until the group drops a new group cd in summer 2000. rough rugged beats, masterful lyrics, it is right up there with 36 chamberz. Peace out

5.0 out of 5 stars Wu_Tang is for the Children December 29, 2009
By Elmo
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I wished RZA's Mantis was on this cd..
One of the illest, most underrated beats ever and Bob Digital goes off on it..
Nothing like old school hip-hop, hip-hop.....

for all the wu-tang fans this is a must have.it features all the wu-tang artists and many more like ras kass,az,biggie smalls,heltah skeltah, mobb deep or shyheim.it is a very good cd and i think it is better than wu-tang forever because it is harder.it sounds more like enter the wu-tang.i think this cd is da bomb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice blend of classic cuts August 14, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This album is often compared to "Rza's Greatest Hits" but this one has more classic tracks. If you are a true wu head then you might want to pick this up. I won't elaborate on the album too much because its material comes from other pervious Wu albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hype new (and revamped) rhymes from the Wu! Great stuff!
Just get the CD. It is the Wu Tang Clan and some friends, i.e., Jermaine Dupri, Biggie, et al. You can't go wrong.
