In 300 years, when future civilizations sift through the wreckage of our society, this album will be treated as one of the foundational building blocks of a global culture. People will analyze the lyrics of the GZA like Shakespeare and the production of the RZA like Mozart, they'll probably even think ODB was a genius! The fact that a group of teenagers from the worst areas of New York were able to combine a few snippets from soul records from the 70s, culture and dialog from martial arts movies from Hong Kong and Japan, and a kick and snare to make something that will still be banging in car stereos and block parties 300 years from now is what music is all about. Wu Tang forever!!!

Nothing like getting into the hard swearing right off the bat. It’s getting better as it gets further into the record. There was definitely a point where there was just so much swearing that I wasn’t sure I wanted to listen to the rest of it. I like the sound, and some of the content is appealing to me. Other parts of it, I don’t like as much, but…it might be a cultural thing?

I know that Wu-Tang is like, rap royalty. They're boom-bap kings. But ... I kinda hate 'em. The lyrics are trash. Content and delivery. All pointless. The beats are repetitive and unimaginative. The whole kung-fu flavor just comes off goofy as hell. Every single member of Wu-Tang went on to make music that was SO MUCH BETTER THAN WU-TANG. Two stars for cultural importance only.

Do like me some hip-hop, but many of the tracks here have either aged like milk or were puerile to start with, and it's another culprit for pre and post-fixing tracks with skits which add little or just detract completely. Probably went down better in a cow-hide Chrysler Fifth Avenue, discussing your gang issues, at the time of release.

So good. Surprisingly so. Was never into them when this album came out, and they’ve sort of passed me by a bit, whilst also enjoying most of what I did know of them. But I was always into bands like J5, Pharcyde and The Roots over Wu Tang. Really enjoyed hopping along to this album. Also way less aggy than I assumed it would be.

Not only is 36 Chambers the best Wu-Tang album, but it’s one of the best hip-hop albums ever. Can’t think of a better ensemble album. Original sound, good flow, dope rhymes and a variety of themes. Started multiple legendary careers. A couple sounds tell a great story/have a good msg. This album has been in my regular rotation for years fir a reason. Easy 5.

This is an undisputed classic of hip-hop. I'm amazed when I read about how this album was recorded that it even came together the way that it did. Usually too many cooks spoil the meal but with this it just worked and MAN did it work. I would say that this is one of the most influential albums of the 90s.

An iconic album for hip hop. It's fresh, grimy, hard hitting, and fun. The production is amazing, I love the jazz and so samples. All the members come through with great verses and the variety of voices this provides keeps every song exciting. A bonafide classic.

My familiarity with the Wu-Tang Clan is limited exclusively to their appearances and association with prestige HBO programming. First they appeared on "The Larry Sanders Show", where a befuddled Hank Kingsley (played to perfection by Jeffrey Tambor) tells the band his favorite song is "Shame On A Nigga". The second moment came on an episode of "The Leftovers" where Nora Durst (in a star-making performance by Carrie Coon) covered up the names of her departed children she had tattooed on her arm with the Wu-Tang Clan logo. Only she referred to them as "the Wu-Tang Band". That episode also made me familiar with the Wu-Tang name generator, which reminds me that I should really start Romanticist Visual as my pen name. If that doesn't scream "Middle Aged White Male", I don't know what does. And this middle aged white male known forever as Romanticist Visual quite enjoyed this album by the Wu-Tang Band. Lower your expectations. It's a fine mess. The Wu got somethin'.

Aiming at once for total unity and individual identity, everyone and everything is vying for space. Two skits introduce ‘Method Man’, for heaven's sake. But even when they’re bickering (“Is he dead? What the fuck do you mean ‘Is he dead?’”) they hold each other up. Meth’s introduction of each member is lovingly done, and it speaks to the respect they have for each other’s skills that they leave the compèring to him. When someone interrupts his flow, they ask permission, before letting him back in for the punchline: “We form like Voltron and the GZA just happen to be the head.” Maybe on another album the skits would be de trop, but because RZA chops and slices the beat, samples and sequencing in equal measure, it just about fits together. Just about. The slightly jagged, off-kilter part of "just about" is where the magic happens. It’s often unclear if a skit is part of a song or a song part of a skit, whether they’re talking or rapping, if a song’s ended or started. It’s seductively menacing, especially as RZA’s fascination with the esoteric means his production is littered with whatsits—piano tinkles, talk of chess, sweet soul samples. They boing off the Clan’s collective rap style of eschewing smoothness and attacking the beat. In between the mysticism, torture fantasies, samurai flicks, street tales, and bravado, you get sight of the horrifying poverty they came from (listen to Ghostface’s ‘All That I Got Is You’ a few years later if you want a good cry) and understand why the Clan was essential for their survival.

I was pretty determined to give this a high rating given its a seminal album in hip hop and music in general, but I feel that would be overly performative. I do like some wu-tang.. particularly protect ya neck but this really doesnt do it for me overall.

I always find this a strange listen. It's ok but never fully grabs me but everyone else loves it. 28 years old? I guess I was still going through my grunge phase? Tell you what I did love at this time - The Disposable Heroes of Hypocrisy. 1992's 'Hypocrisy Is The Greatest Luxury' still sounds more vital than this. Shame Franti decided he wanted to be reborn as the new Bob Marley.

Hell yeah! This album has so many good songs. Perfect for listening to in your car a little too loud, and drowning out the rest of the world.

WU WU WU WU WU! These guys are fantastic! 9 skilled rapper taking turns, each with your own personality, a unique style and rhyme you can't resist getting attached to. Theme continues hardcore gangsta hip hop but marks the East Coast Renaissance. Sound is much more minimalistic than we're used to, placing more of an emphasis on what the rappers can show us. The raps are really smart, like insanely smart. These are model raps I look to for inspiration how to rhyme. I love how the samples evolve as the members swap, making each track feel longer and more rewarding. Samples are minimalistic, feels inspired by the jazz rap but low key and fun. Nice kung fu clips. I'm usually not a fan of skits, especially when so often they glue in with the track themselves and last two minutes. But these were fun with all the different characters. Nothing like Biggie and his friend taking on all their roles. GZA the poet and philosopher. Ol Dirty Bastard with the ol loco wubudub voice that sounds like he came from the dentist. Ghostface Killah with his high, loud, and crazy voice, reminds me of Flavor Flav. U-God with that rough almost Jamaican voice that rolls off the tongue. Masta Killa the guy who only showed up for a minute and called it a day. Inspectah Deck the energetic one with the accessible voice. Raekwon the young, slick voice with the heartbreaking stories. Method Man the mature, collective one who really sings in some of his verses. RZA the strong and aggressive leader who incites the audience. There's a strong momentum with "Da Mystery of Chessboxing" that carries to the rest of the album. The songs before them are amazing too, but the long skits more than often serve as a distraction. "Bring Da Ruckus" and "Shame on a Nigga" set up the mood for the album. "Clan in Da Front" is a display of GZA's poetry and highlights his character, also reinforcing RZA's status. "7th Chamber Part I" gives us an overview over the majority of the clan members and their unique styles. "Can It Be All So Simple" is where I start paying attention to the samples, love the stories built. "Da Mystery of Chessboxing" really kicks the album into gear, with "Wu Tang Ain't Nuthin ta F' Wit" carrying that momentum and energy. "C.R.E.A.M." is a natural hit with an often misinterpreted message. "Method Man" highlights the titular character's talent with some awesome samples. I love the way he sings... he changes his tone so much, sometimes you want to sing along. "Protect Ya Neck" has some of my favorite lines, especially GZA's. "Tearz" has my favorite samples, a highlight of RZA and his intense emotional storytelling. Wear protection kids. "7th Chamber Part II" is a fitting closer. Nice mixing and samples.

Okay, a fantastic album by one of the most talented acts of the 90s. I have previously said that the dominance of gangsta rap help back hip-hop, yet here we have the greatest gangsta rap of them all. Now, it's interesting to compare this to Tupac's All Eyez on me. With that, there was the constant sense of a punch being pulled, of someone playing at being a thug, and playing at being a poet, and fallaciously assuming that the logic would make him a thug poet. With Enter the Wu-Tang, we have proper thug poets. We have such uncompromising music and such uncompromising lyricism, and both beguile. One will love the dark laughter. If people tolerated gangsta rap as it gave the promise of an eventual wonderful act, this is that promise being fulfilled. The mysticism is piffle, but that's in no way a dealbreaker: it's nice to have an east-coast hardcore rap outfit culturally appropriating kung-fu movie lore.

How was Shame On A N***a ever given a radio friendly version? The sampling on this record is awesome. The way they break this up with different long form interviews and samples, this is more than an album. It's a manifesto. Wu-Tang Clan Ain't Nuthing ta Fuck Wit is the start of and a high point in the entire gangsta rap genre. Its also an incredibly DARK album, especially on the break right before M.E.T.H.O.D. Man.

Love this album, when Ghostface starts on ‘Bring Da Ruckus’ you’re in for a wild ride. The group helped make New York Hip Hop and this album is some of the best. It shows with tracks like ‘Method Man’, C.R.E.A.M. and ‘Da Mystery of Chessboxing’, these should be in any Hip-Hop Playlist. Method Man and Raekwon are especially good in this album along with Ghostface and GZA which are always consistent. The only issue I have found with this album over time is that I normally skip some tracks for example ‘Can It Be All So Simple’ seems out and place, it by far the weakest track/skit. It leads to the album feeling especially long with the skits before or after some tracks. Overall, this album will always be one of the best Hip Hop albums along with Wu-Tang as they have a unique style.

Lo primero que se me viene a la mente es que necesito reescuchar más veces este disco como para ponerle más atención. Lo que escuché, me gusté y me dejé llevar a veces, siento que cada vez me convenzo de que el hip-hop es un género que aunque no lo reconozco entre mis favoritos, nunca me molesta. Es sólo que quizá he escuchado muy poco. Acá hay mucho "flow" si se puede decir esto y beats muy pegajosos, creo que "C.R.E.A.M." y "Wu-Tang Clan Ain't Nuthing ta F'Wit" son las que más me emocionaron, aunque siento que no hubo alguna que me disgustara. Por cierto, ni sabía nada de este disco ni de los Wu-Tang Clan. 8.5/10

I have heard the band's name for a long, long time yet never heard any of their music. This is a rough album at times, but I don't say that as a criticism; I know that's the intention and it's highly effective. The vocals and music drew me in and they work. From reading about this album, I think most of the instrumental parts are samples? Somehow, it all works. Totally get how influential they were on a lot of acts that followed.

9 heads is better than 1. The lyrics on this album are phenomenal, probably because of the different contributors and perspectives and that it's a few guys being "on" for a few songs not all of them. Still, that's 9 talented lyricists. And in my opinion it's really not much more than them rapping about how good they are (or better than others). But it's good bragging and it's not just the same thing recycled on every song. The other motif is telling how they got to where they are, mixing in some shaolin bits to make it half real, half fairytale. Whatever the topic, there's lots of raw energy and great wordplay. And even when they're putting down others it's not the homophobia or misogyny that other albums of the time were pumping out. The interludes to open songs (7th Chamber and Method Man) are still BS but the ones that close songs (Can it Be All So Simple) are worthy listening to. Besides the lyrics, they've got slick, simple beats. Pump it. Shame On A... is a great example of how all of it comes together. Love that track. Ditto on Da Mystery of Chessboxin and Protect Ya Neck.

True story: I actually own this album. I found it in a book store for $1. I picked it up because: 1) It was $1. What had I got to lose? 2) Wu-tang is for the children. So yeah, it’s not something I regularly blast through the house, but they definitely made a statement here. Great flow, beats it’s all gear. Quintessential Wu-tang.

Decades of imitators demonstrate that the Clan's East Coast Shaolin lane is a true niche. Nonetheless, a classic and wildly influential record. The group pulls a neat causal trick by launching a whole parcel of careers with the strange artifact that is 36 Chambers. Messier cuts like C.R.E.A.M. are my favorites, but the more focused tracks are good as well. It's a packed project.

Firstly, one should watch the film that inspired Wu-Tang, and this album. Secondly, Wu-Tang Clan here is an incredible album. It is like listening to a bunch of grown-ups that loved a movie so much, they used it as the backdrop for a rap album incorporating life, the streets, everything. Definitely, a truly creative effort by what is essentially a super-group of rap artists now producers, etc. The album is fun, it is crass at times, but from an objective perspective the compilation of talent and seemingly original content does make this a masterpiece. Rap/hip-hop is not the usual fare for this reviewer, but it is known that there are indeed some real masterpieces out there that need to be heard, and this has been one of them.

"Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)" has a very unique sound, a hip-hop that sounds underground and avant-garde at the same time. The result is a hardcore effort that became greatly influential at the time. The lyrics are raw (talkin about urban life), but also very humorous (about martial arts movies and comic book) and goes through a lot of free association. The samples are also a very defining caracteristic of this record, and RZA's production created a blueprint for the genre.

They sure got the band name correct: the Wu-Tan 'Clan,' as opposed to, say, the Wu-Tang Association or the Wu-Tang Consortium. Confederacy? I don’t think so. Syndicate might have been a viable alternative. But clan is simple, one syllable to Wu-Tang’s two. And these gentlemen are indeed clannish, true to its original definition as a family or group of people with a strong common interest. And like the Asian clans the Wu-Tang so admire, Ol’ Dirty Bastard and RZA and Inspectah Deck and the rest are armed and anxious to protect and defend what’s rightly theirs. I mean two of their members wear the last name of ‘Killa(h).’ Opening with ‘Bring Da Ruckus’ (a terrific and unfortunately neglected word, ‘ruckus’) we are warned in no uncertain terms- and I do not use that expression lightly- to tread softly around the Wu-Tang. They are already agitated. They already have guns. And all the weed they’re smoking doesn’t appear to be taking much of the edge off, either. Approach with caution. Street life for young, poor, urban African Americans is artfully described throughout the LP, with no holds barred on language and illustrations. I’m not easily offended, but congratulations, Wu-Tang, you managed to do it on ‘Method Man’s’ intro. That said, the general expression of this LP is a clear illustration of the natural consequences awaiting anyone threatening a dangerous and frightened living creature with their back up against the wall. Someone’s liable to get hurt. On ‘Can It Be All So Simple,’ the Wu-Tang recounts a personal history that, while not being justification, still offers an explanation for violent retribution. ‘C.R.E.A.M.' (cash rules everything around me) offers a primer, or warning, for surviving the streets as a youth. Violent, offensive lyrics aside, the members of this clan are more than skilled at spittin’ ‘em. The rhymes are cleverly composed and flawlessly delivered. ‘Clan in da Front’ was a great example of rhythm, meter, and performance that may be honestly described as amazing. Likewise, the raps on ‘Method Man’ and ‘Shame on a Nigga’ were superbly executed (with a wide variety of meaning.) The Wu-Tang are great at what they do. Super sounds, back and foreground. Still, I think I’ll enjoy them at a distance. Hey, without even an actual listen, just a quick reflection on the title alone of the second song off the second side will pretty much tell you all you need to know about 'Enter the Wu-Tang Clan-36 Chambers': ‘WuTang Clan Ain’t Nothing ta Fuck Wit.’ And that’s putting it mildly.

I know I've heard some of this before but can't remember much about it. It's pretty good, most of them know what they're doing, and it has that mid 90s swagger I love that seems to exist across all sorts of genres. Maybe it's the production? Not gonna end up in regular rotation, bit too much of a deep cut in a genre I don't really care that much about, but solid 3/5.

I remember buying this in high school at a Sam Goody with high hopes, then getting bored with the repetition and just waiting for the moments when ODB or Method Man would show up - the two of the Wu that were the funniest and had the most dynamic voice and flow. Years later I feel about the same way, but want to show growth and personal development so will say some good things. Anytime there's more melody in the production beyond drums and a 3 second piano loop, I'm in. The string of songs from Chessboxing>Nuthing>CREAM>Method is unimpeachable. This is way harder than their West Coast rivals. The Shaolin concept is cool as hell. Chillin chillin. B

El setlist tiene temas que son clasicos y algunos subpar, pero no hay una cosa que no cierre en todo el disco. Recomiendo arrancar con este si queres escuchar rap con varios MC. Tal vez Straight Outta Compton de NWA también, pero ya llegaremos ahi. En fin. El golden standar para este tipo de discos. Wu Tang forever. Me volvió a pegar el somit.

Lo tenía guardado de otra manera en mi cabeza este disco. Es el cuarto que compartía con mi hermano, el televisor de tubo chiquito con la videocasetera abajo, la PS1 prendida jugando thrasher skate and destroy (el jugaba, yo miraba) y olor a huevo, mucho olor a huevo. Me acuerdo cuando se compró Temple of boom de Cypress Hill que el booklet venía con olor a porro. Nada, disco emocional. Repito, hacía muchísimo tiempo que no lo escuchaba y lo tenía más "entretenido". C.R.E.A.M sigue estando bien ubicada en mi cabeza. Transplants tiene una versión muy copada que se llama D.R.E.A.M. En fin. Creo que no lo voy a volver a escuchar para no seguir arruinando el recuerdo.

Cool grooves, lyrics are pretty rough, but at least they keep the misogyny to a minimum. Enjoyed the unique styles of each rapper. Lots of great (and sometimes obscure) references. Bring da Ruckus and Shame on a N***a are both really cool, but I think if I ever tried to rap along with them where anyone could hear I'd get my ass kicked. Comparing it to contemporaries, I liked the grooves on Dr. Dre's The Chronic a lot more and I felt it had a lot more variety than this album.

Bring Da Ruckus: Interessante ma non è decisamente il mio genere e bisognerebbe seguì i testi. La vedo dura! Vabbè è inutile che faccio pezzo per pezzo qua... Can It Be All So Simple / Intermission: questo m'è piaciuto, anche alcune immagini del testo me so piaciute. La base non so perché me ricorda un po' Tom's Diner di Suzanne Vega... Ho apprezzato il riferimento a Voltron nell'intervista alla fine. Da Mystery Of Chessboxin': Pure questa m'è piaciuta, m'è piaciuto lo sbroccume e alcuni pezzi del testo (peccato che poi ce devono buttà le stronzate sulle droghe) Method Man: Sicuramente ho apprezzato il fatto di sigillare il buco del culo dell'altro e poi continuare a dargli da mangiare. Conclusione: Eh.... come ogni volta che sento sta musica ho di nuovo la stessa sensazione: qua non si sta a parlà tanto di musica quanto di un fenomeno culturale che non capisco, me mancano proprio le basi culturali. Musicalmente è difficile da giudicare, c'è poco, ci sono delle cose anche mediamente raffinate nelle basi e pure nelle parti vocali un po' più sbroccate che ho apprezzato, però nun so che dì... La copertina è figa!

Trots de traditionella stildragen inom hip hop kan jag ej förbi se de planheten. Inom denna genren användas vanligtvis det instrumentala endast som ett verktyg för att rytmisera det verbala. Problematiken i detta är att jag mestadels är en instrumentell lyssnare vilket gör mig till helt fel målgrupp. Därmed har jag lite att säga om albumet förutom att det saknar komplexitet och från min synpunkt lyckas därmed inte albumet. Samtidigt är det nämnvärt att flera hip hop-artister har lyckats med det instrumentala såsom Kendrick Lamar eller Tyler the Creator.

I swear, a lot but I'm not a fan of it in my music. And this did my head in after only 3 minutes into the album. It's excessive.

Too bad the music isn’t as cool as the image, logo and member names (Ghostface Killah,; Ol’ Dirty Bastard; Inspectah Deck) Was on my way to three stars, then heard the intro to “Method Man” - that third star got smacked on the dresser with a spiked baseball bat.

Just not my genre. Listen to some hip hop classics on the radio. Love kid rock.

Ihan kiinnostavaa oikeastaan, mut tästä uupuu tiettyä melodisuutta, joka vois voittaa mut puolelleen. Hienoja elementtejä kyllä, mut ei nyt ihan napsahtanut. Ehkä kuvaavaa, etten huomannut kun albumi loppui ja shufflella jatkoi samanlaiset biisit

A guy repeating the fuckin' word sometimes with other doing a choir that makes the (other) words un-understable. Not the type of music that Id like.

I like how they reference schlocky chop socky Kung Fu movies from the 70s and the album title is pretty damned cool, but I didn't care much for the music. A bit too raw and minimalist for me.

I wonder if my brother was dragged out to see these guys by his son, or at least Ghostface Killa? Anyhow, I like the production and the use of multiple rappers, but as always, I'm not keen on LPs that rely heavily on F-bombs to grab your attention.

Really couldn't get anything positive out of this. Didn't like the music, but was able to simply ignore most of it except the most annoying tracks such as 7th chamber oder method man. Some of the voice samples/intros/interludes were extremely distracting and annoying. After half of the album I started skipping some parts. For me, clearly the worst album so far.

I don't know as much East Coast rap as West Coast, and having not heard this until I was today years old, I'm not a big fan. Also, ODB was only 25 - just "DB"?

the skits and stuff really detract from what's already a boring as hell album. Every track was the same as the last, nothing interesting here, no good raps, no good backing tracks. Think I'll stick to good rap.

Like ‘Enter the dragon’ the old Bruce Lee film. Only not, because it isn’t a film it’s some angry men shouting.

I was probably never going to love this, it just isn’t my thing, but for what little my opinion’s worth I didn’t this was very good. All very samey and…inexperienced sounding, I guess, not in a good fresh way. Method Man clearly stands out as having the best flow of the bunch.

While I can appreciate their influence and legacy on music, this was decidedly NOT for me. Too much swearing and often the sound mixing seemed off, where the vocals and background beat didn't blend into each other

Total crap. I couldn't even make it through the entire album. I like rap, hip hop and all that, but I can do without all the "niggas" and other disgraceful language. Ignorant music for ignorant people. 0/5 but I have to give it 1/5.

I like generally rap & hiphop, but I can't stand gangsta rap and this is pretty much just that.

Tapped out during the skit where they threatened to stick a hanger up my ass. I recognize these guys: they’ve been telling me I’m “not really black” my whole life. I’m sure it means I’m old, but records like this make me long for the days of Sir Mix a Lot and “Christmas in Hollis. Pardon me while I go listen to Bad Brains.
