Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (4/7/94, p.73) - 3 1/2 Stars - Good Plus - "...Wu-Tang make underground rap: low on hype and production values, high on the idea that indigence is an integral part of blackness....It's not enough to rhyme like have-nots and look like have-nots. They've got to sound like have-nots..."

Spin (9/99, p.131) - Ranked #22 in Spin Magazine's "90 Greatest Albums of the '90s."

Entertainment Weekly (12/17/93, p.70) - "...With its rumble jumble of drumbeats, peppered with occasional piano plunking, ENTER has a raw, pass-the-mike flavor we haven't heard since rap was pop's best-kept secret...." - Rating: A

Q (12/99, p.82) - Included in Q Magazine's "90 Best Albums Of The 1990s."

The Wire (10/01, p.44) - "...RZA was building a new house for HipHop, a place to mourn and think and wander..."

Vibe (12/99, p.158) - Included in Vibe's 100 Essential Albums of the 20th Century

The Source (2/94, p.73) - "...This is not just another rap album with gangsta themes and gun smoke. [ENTER THE WU-TANG] is the manifestation of classic kung-fu type styles infected with the realities of ghetto life/death and strong Old School b-boy memories....A throwback to the days of 1986-87 when rap was filled with hones, greatness and skill..."

Billboard - "36 CHAMBERS is their landmark effort. Twenty years later, still nothing sounds quite like it; nothing can duplicate its hardest edges or most powerful passages."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.59) - Ranked #62 in Mojo's "100 Modern Classics" -- "The RZA's atmospheric production spliced bullet chamber beats with eerie piano'n'string motifs..."
