Wu-Tang Clan - Wu-Tang Forever
180 gram numbered audiophile edition. Hitting the number one spot in the US Album charts, Wu Tang's second album Wu-Tang Forever (1997) followed up on the massive success of Enter The Wu-Tang. With more elaborate production, soundtrack style violins and synths and the addition of protegee Cappadonna, the gang continued to tell stories about ghetto life, hoochie mamas and getting high as a kite. Standout tracks are Reunited, For Heaven's Sake and Visionz, with their slightly off-beats and inventive use of samples, with great narratives to boot. Right from the get-go, Wu-Tang Forever is an outstanding and defining Hip hop record (on no less than 8 sides) that's built to last.
