    ... hard question.

    i'm only considering the following members:
    - rza
    - ghostface
    - gza
    - inspectah
    - method
    - odb
    - raekwon

    my favourite album from the aforementioned:
    - rza: bobby digital
    - ghostface: supreme clientelle
    - gza: liquid swords
    - inspectah: uncontrolled substance
    - method: tical (1994)
    - odb: return to the 36 chambers
    - raekwon: only built 4 cuban linx

    so, judging from the best albums from those, i'd have to vote for only built 4 cuban linx.

    supreme clientelle and liquid swords are a close second.

    I was thinking Supreme Clientele, then I was like "nah, man, Iron Man was rawer" and then I was like "Liquid Swords is genius (pun intended)" then I was like "Tical was extremely nice and raw"... then like "Birth Of A Prince is underrated" then I was like fuck it...

    It's like picking a dish out of a buffet made of only food you love, they all taste amazing, and you can't pick between pancakes and ice cream, instead of picking one I rather just combine it...

    supreme Clientele only due to the fact that I really didn't hear the purple tape till after that. But Ghostdini Did his thing on a bulletproof wallets as well , I fux wit iron man heavy,fish scale is also a classics so I'd have to say ghost face

    that's two votes for ghost so far, only built 4 cuban linx was half ghost half chef in my opinion too.

    both classics.

    what a fucking super group.

    imagine a group like wu-tang spawns in this modern era, i'd blow my brains out.

    a tad bit harsh and very inaccurate.

    I feel like Cuban Linx is my favorite, since I've always had it as one of my top 5 or 10 albums or some shit... but sometimes I feel like it goes on too long to enjoy to completion on any kind of a regular basis, and Liquid Swords has higher highs with a more Illmatic length.

    I think Liquid Swords is what I'm more likely to look to first these days.

    Nothing but love for IRONMAN, Supreme Clientele & Tical. T2000, In Stereo & Birth of a Prince stay slept on... even 4:20 and Blackout... and shit every Ghost album is solid.

    Repped nu, i was thinking about making this topic but making it your favourite album from each member.

    Ill have to do a top 5 in no order.

    Supreme clientele, fishscale, liquid swords, ob4cl 1 and 2.

    I doubt id normally have ob4cl2 but ive been listening to it heavy recently and its really really dope.

    I agree with everything you wrote... I would go so far as to say OB4CL is the best Wu release period.

    I think Dopium is underrated... & I say "think" because I don't like the remixes on there & haven't listened to it completely yet, but what I heard I loved.

    Specially, what hooked me into the album, this track:



    "Aiming for your soft spots, the scene out of Kill Bill"

    salute.

    what? lol, fair enough but i don't see how.

    for me that was the clan in their prime, every track was grimey as shit.

    an album so good that an amazing track such as verbal intercourse is overlooked.

    I cant pick.. im a big ghostface fan so ill go with... APOLLO KIDS. I love that album.

    honorable mentions for OB4CL and liquid swords. my tattoo artist was a big wu fan so the first time i heard liquid swords it was thanks to him blasting that shit in the background. the buzzing from the tattoo gun gave it an extra dope feel.

    Apollo kids is dope as fuck, one of the best albums from the last 5 years. Im not feeling a couple of beats but overall its up to his usual standards.

    Street bullies, ghetto, troublemaker, black tequilla, purified thoughts and superstar are all so nice. Hard hitting beats with dope content and features. I need to give that another play.
