    Default The W 20th anniversary

    Anything you want to share now that we are 20 years out from Wu's 3rd release.

    Initially a letdown (how do you follow up a monument like Wu Forever?). How did it age? Didn't hear it for over 5, maybe 10 years now.

    I feel the same way I did back then...it's a good album but not a classic. A few trash songs but there are some bangers on here

    It's still a good album. It has some good songs, a super-dope introduction track (as all Wu-Tang albums), some classic songs like "Gravel Pit" or "Do You Really (Thang Thang)". The biggest problem of album was probably the fact that hip-hop had changed since the release of Wu-Tang Forever plus Wu Forever was a milestone (especially commercially) and it was hard to drop something equally dope. But it's still a great album and it's aged well

    Good album. This album brings back good memories when I was a kid. BTNHResurrection and The W were neck and neck as I can recall. 2000 was a good year for music.

    Lot of love for Redbull. That was one of my least favorites. The lyrics were good, but the beat was uninspiring.
    This is a F'N Rza beat here

    This is a classic. Verses are also all over.

    The album needed more GZA, in my opinion.
