CD Reviews

Not your usual wu project
Michael Lee | Seattle, WA | 05/27/2004

"i started off my life as a hip hop enthusiast with ghostafce killah's album "ironman" which is a CLASSIC, go get it if you don't have it already. shortly after that was wu tangs "36 chambers" and then "forever" and that was it. i was a diehard wu head. they have always been my favorite hip hop group far and away. so eventually i started picking up wu side joints and finding that most of them didn't do it for me like the clan themselves. then i heard "weary eyes" at my friends house and i was like 'DAMN who is this??!!?'it was wu syndicate. i copped the album right away.years later, and hundreds of albums listened to later, i still consider this one of my top ten hip hop albums of all time. i hope you can grasp the magnitude of that statement....i listen to EVERYTHING. from concious underground stuff, dark gangster stuff, experimental rap, and even mainstream if it strikes me as something fresh. the entire album is great, every song. you could take the skip button off your cd player,(you might want to keep the back button though). PLEASE-do yourself a favor, and wu syndicate a favor, and ME a favor because this album deserves recognition. COP THIS ALBUM. peace-Mike"

"The single "where was heaven" & video made me get [a] copy Syndicate's album wu syndicate the day it came out! From the begining to the end... Wu syndicate hits you with nothing but an real, honest, and excellent production hip hop album! High lights are "thug war" , "metropolis" , and , "where was heaven"! Don't think twice and just [get a] copy syndicate's disc called wu-syndicate, alright ? Peace god !!!"

"I have to say that I was quite surprised by this album, Wu-Syndicate which is made up of duo Myalansky and Joe Mafia and also guest starring Napolean bring a solid debut that judging by the cover could easily be mistaken for another wannabe gangster group, it was the Wu-Tang presents logo which peaked my interest and after reading a few of the reviews on amazon I decided to by it, Im glad I did because this is easily one of the best Wu affiliated albums to be released.

The production on this album is of a high quality and it is quite similar to Raekwon's only built for cuban linx album but nowhere near as good as that piece of genius, but although the production is mostly handled by unknowns they all have a firm grasp on replicating the Wu and at times Mobb Deep sounding beats. The rhyming is of decent quality, all three demonstrating enough skill to carry the great production they've been given and there are rarely any guest's giving them plenty of space to show what they can do.

If you are a Wu fan I advise that you check this out, it is solid with some great production, fave tracks include Young Brothas, Weary Eyes and Bust a Slug.
Great album, great group, get it."
