    For all those commenting on the sound quality, this wasn't exactly the pinnacle of audio recording. It didn't sound amazing in 93' and certainly doesn't now, but it's a perfectly fine sounding record after a clean & dust. Some may even have the late 90's/early 00's reissue as it's very hard to tell the difference.

      A rap classic and must have in any collection. My copy is a little quiet, but sounds good otherwise.

            The best of '93 along with Black Moon's Enta da Stage.

              Found one sealed in its original form for 20 bucks. I want to open and play it very badly....😤

                While my copy doesn't suffer from the noise others' have, disc 1 is unacceptably warped. Otherwise the SQ is appropriate for this recording IMO.

                  This is my 1993 copy of Enter the Wu-Tang, one of the greatest hip hop albums ever recorded. I somehow got it for $20 from McKays in the new arrival bin. It now has a home where it receives weekly play. This is… one of my top ten albums. It is an absolute masterpiece of lo-fidelity, murky production, menacing and intrigue-steeped heavy beats, and lyrical style and variety enough to impress even the most stalwart opponent of raps inevitable charms.

                  The easily and casually dropped notes of violence, hilarious crude humor, and incredible wordplay on the album help inspire me every day to do better in my own wording for my songs. I aspire to be as a better lyricist than the day before every day. The overdubbed and chopped Kung Fu movie samples and play-style skits on the album give the entire production a very theatrical feel, and is one of the best executed examples of such a connection between music and actor, artists both. All art is in and of itself interconnected.

                  For those concerned about the quality of the pressing’s sound, as it has been oft-bemoaned on Discogs, my argument is maybe they just need to TURN IT UP! This album is PLENTY loud. It’s incredible in every way! The best pressing.
