From incidental music to stormy old-school throwdowns, Afro-Samurai covers a lot of ground in one hour. While it doesn’t have the cohesion of RZA’s classic productions for the Wu-Tang Clan, this score finds the producer further pushing the envelope of hip-hop sound design. The stealthy, nervous orchestras of the “Bazooka Fight” instrumentals and the skeletal sounds of “Afro’s Father Fight” and “Tears of a Samurai” are abstract pieces of background music that sound like haunted, shattered pieces of complete songs. “Oh,” “The Walk,” and “Baby” have just enough grime to save them from being facsimiles of Jodeci; if RZA decided to push the darker side of these r’n’b experiments, he could have a deeper sound for modern soul music. Elsewhere he reconfigures the sound of some golden age hip-hop heroes, and while the Q-Tip collaboration “Just a Lil Dude Who Dat Ovah There” gets bogged down in clumsy repetition, the Big Daddy Kane showcase “Cameo Afro” is a must-hear. For all its schizophrenic experiments, Afro-Samurai proves that RZA is still in possession of one of popular music’s thriving musical consciousnesses.
RZA's BEST YET!!!
This is a piece of art. RZA has one of the greatest positions to be asked to do soundtracks for the coolest anime because only he could have done such a classic job. Cameo Afro is addictive w/GZA and Insomnia is soooo cool..."like Eddie Munster, I keep a dragon under my stairs". The beats are awesome, a mix of Asian sounds and sweet hip hop street. You WILL love this one if you are a fan of Wu and anime! You'll be in the zone,,,"like Method Man with a playstation and an ounce of weed".
RZA drops another from the 36 chambers of danger
crazy album, RZA production is amazing as usual, great bobby digital tracks in the end, could this mean a return of bobby hopefully.
RZA really helps bring out the hip-hop vibe of Afro Samurai. A great album for any rap lover, but I strongly suggest "Certified Samurai" if you don't want the whole album.
