The fun part of these Tidal catalogs now is that they are living documents. As new official records get released, I will go ahead and update them moving forward so that they always stay current. You can reference the original post, here. And of course with the Wu – you can likely expect many of these.
- Album: Czarface – The Odd Czar Against Us
- Review: I always look forward to a new Czarface record as in reality, it’s the only good thing Inspectah Deck actually does. I think it’s mostly 7L & Esoteric that really define the sound but I’ll give some credit to the Inspectah here. Czarface records are the most unique of any of the Wu members projects outside of some of the weird collaborations that Ghostface does now and again. Most of their albums have been based around movie / TV samples – mostly comic book references but this one isn’t at all. The audio clips are at a minimum here, letting the music and the rhymes shine through. And that’s good because the beats are fantastic and very much unlike the typical Wu sound that RZA makes. What makes the record is that it’s a fun one. Not nearly as serious sounding as the previous records, there’s a lot of really catchy hooks and really catchy beats, making this record the best in the Czarface catalog, pretty easily.
