iTunes Editors’ Notes

The first wave of classic Wu-Tang solo albums — Method Man’s Tical, GZA’s Liquid Swords, and Raekwon’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx — were spare and cerebral. Ghostface Killah’s Ironman brought a burst of unbridled vulnerability to the crew’s aesthetic. Ghostface’s style fuses detail-oriented storytelling with stream-of-consciousness word association, but his delivery has the emotional urgency of a man perpetually on the verge of tears. Brilliant works like “Wildflower,” “Fasta Blade,” “Assassination Day,” Winter Warz” and “Box In Hand” adhere to the Wu-Tang’s spare, mysterious blueprint, but Ironman is defined by its references to ‘70s R&B. Ghostface is perfectly matched to the deconstructed Memphis soul samples of “Iron Maiden,” “260,” “Fish,” and “Motherless Child,” while the drumless Jackson 5 sample used in “All That I Got Is You” sets that song’s poignant tone. Ironman closes with its most overlooked but also most interesting songs. Arranged in a haunting trilogy, “Motherless Child,” “Black Jesus” and “After the Smoke Is Clear” are ruminations that fuse Black Nationalist theology, ghetto portraiture, and ancient blues.

Another Classic RZA Production

Please, stop bringing an album's rating down just because it's the edited version. You're supposed to be reviewing the ALBUM, not just one specific version. This album is sick. I loved the solo albums that came out between 36 Chambers & Forever. They were essentialy Wu albums, to remind you that although the artist has gone solo, the most skilled hip hop crew is still as tightly wound as ever. Although this disc is fire, Supreme Clientele is still my preference for Ghost. The Chef & Cappadonna are excellent companions of Mr. Tony Starks on this album. You have to hear Iron Maiden, Wildflower, Assassination Day (Ghost isn't even on this track, but INS & RZA contribute some superb verses, and the beat is amazing), Poisonous Darts, Winter Warz (Cappadonna flows at the end of this song for about a day & a half), Box In Hand (the violin at the beginning has a very somber feeling), Camay, Motherless Child (tight beat), After The Smoke Is Clear, The Soul Controller (by the way, why isn't this track on itunes? It's one of the few on the album with just Ghost by himself) This disc is a great addition to your Wu-Tang collection.

Why would u want a clean version

Most of Ghostface's lyrics are explicit. Having a clean version would be like having an instrumental version

No expict version

why would you sell the clean version but not the explict version lets grow up itunes

Biography

As one of the original members of the seminal '90s rap crew the Wu-Tang Clan, Ghostface Killah (aka Tony Starks) made an impact before he released his debut album, Ironman, late in 1996. Like all members of the Wu-Tang Clan, the rapper used the group as a launching pad for a solo career, which was assisted greatly by other members of the Clan, particularly producer RZA. Ghostface Killah had rapped on Wu-Tang's 1993 debut, Enter the Wu-Tang, but he didn't distinguish himself until 1995, when he was...
