Rating: Three Guns
A lot has happened in the six years since The Wu-Tang Clan released their last album. The members have gone to release successful solo albums, Ol’ Dirty Bastard died, so on and so on…
The track that stands out is “The Heart Gently Weeps” which is a take off of The Beatles’ “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”. George Harrison’s son Dhani Harrison, Erykah Badu and The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ John Frusciante guest-star on the song. The song is dark as it explores loss and the reality of violence and crime. Erykah’s interlude “I don’t know why/Nobody told you/Man’s not supposed to cry/Though we’re just babies and you’re so crazy/How tears of joy bring so much life” speaks volumes to the emotions of life and yeah, sometimes life is that fucked up.
