Oh man… I remember buying this album when I was in my early teens. It marked a real shift in my musical tastes. Before the Wu I just wouldn’t entertain the notion of listening to music that wasn’t being played by a ‘band’. The imagery that this album conjured up was of dark alleys, dimly lit multistorey parking garages and steam rising from manhole covers… It was dark, seedy and intensely gritty. I truly enjoy every minute and imagine I’ll return to it for many years.
Only built for Cuban Linx is definitely the number 2 spot although some of method man’s solo material ie. Tical 2000 is definitely worth listening to.
Sounds like talking heads had a scuzzy, bastard child with franz ferdinand. Really like it.
Cool list. Definitely enough to keep me occupied for the next wee while! Loving Cult of Youth; the vocals really remind me of the guy from viking themed metal band bathory, which is awesome. Dirty beaches is quite interesting but maybe a bit ‘over inspired’ by Suicide? Listen to ‘speedway’ then ‘dream baby’. Maybe its just me?
