Album Review

Since presentation is so important to the revolutionary rap group the Wu-Tang Clan, this 2009 compilation falls well outside the Wu universe on looks alone. That said, it is meant to fit the design standard of Sony's Playlist series and the track list is prime Wu material. The hits "C.R.E.A.M.," "Method Man," and "Protect Ya Neck" (in its "Jump Off" remix) are present and surrounded by fan favorites plus a couple deep album cuts.

[Playlist: The Very Best of Wu-Tang Clan was also made available in a clean version with all explicit material removed.]
