Agreed, and it's a lot to take in. I'm thinking rap was the first genre to really embrace the CD in terms of making the most of its longer running time compared to vinyl, but that gets you a lot of bloat and padding over 70 minutes with the skits and duff tracks and whatnot. I had to take a break after hitting my first lull at 'Can It Be All So Simple' but I'll get back to it in a bit.Listening to this now. I like the voices and the rap. What's not to like about the shear amount of words going on here. Not mad about the skits. The songs tend to start, loads of rapping then fade out. The songs don't really go anywhere, not something that's unique to this particular album, it's a genre thing. Maybe that's just the way it is in hip hop.
Well, it's probably classified as electronic hip hop? maybe. I remembered I have an Sugarhill Gang album which I have definitely listened to a few times. I get the feeling this is going to be a bit different.Is that classed as a hip hop album? Then the Wu Tang's is the 2nd hip hop album I've ever listened to, yay!
Actually I'll qualify that - every CD-era album whatever the genre is X tracks too long. Even some records I love. See also: that hidden track bullshit where the album finishes and there's 20 minutes of silence and then WHAM GET OUT OF MY EARS.Every CD-era rap album is about X tracks too long.
