Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 1/4/01, p.108
Included in Rolling Stone's "Top 50 Albums of 2000".
Rolling Stone - 3/16/00, p.74
3.5 stars out of 5 - "...will strengthen the most evangelical of Wu-fans' faith....The album goes a long way toward reuniting the otherwise disparate Clan itself....Still, Ghostface keeps a firm grip on the mike..."
Spin - 1/01, p.73
Ranked #11 in Spin's "Top 20 Albums of the Year [2000]" - "...Results: fun as bursts of adrenaline, a restored Wu-Tang Clan, and a reawakened RZA."
Q - 5/00, p.107
4 stars out of 5 - "...Magnificent throughout....Rare is the contemporary hip hop album that has so few dull moments."
Alternative Press - 5/00, p.85
5 out of 5 - "...Amazing....From the opening minutes of this all-uptempo, all-sorta-dissonant wild ride, it shows and proves....a minutely detailed, if largely abstract, document of a unique black artist's emotional life..."
The Wire - 1/01, p.34
Included in Wire's "50 Records Of The Year".
The Wire - 4/00, p.68
"...[He] sproings out of the slammer, declares 'Rap is like ziti' and the day is savory. Smack 'em yak 'em!....Ghost verbally dyes and bleeds...with at least 9 producers, Ghost is everywhere..."
CMJ - 2/21/00, p.5
"...marks a renewed sense of unification and strength within the Wu World Order....a solid reminder as to why Ghostface's voice is the first one you hear on the Clan's inimitable debut."
Vibe - 6/02, p.109
Ranked #10 in Vibe's "Top 10 rap albums" - "...Ghost cobbles juicy, tabloid-worthy tales from free-associated verses, spiked with occasional sobs - B-boy becomes B-man..."
Vibe - 4/00, p.176
"...exemplifies Ghost's lyrical dexterity. While his thunderous light-speed delivery hasn't changed much, his jagged wordplay is at its zenith....this banger's luscious linguistics and potent production support its claim of supremecy....pure delight..."
The Source - 3/00, pp.239-40
4.5 mics out of 5 - "...an A+ record in Wu fashion....arguably as entertaining as his debut, IRONMAN....With appearances by just about every important Wu figure...[the album] is a Wu album in the Wu-est sense....a big glob of mud, smackin' hip-hop dead in the face..."
Melody Maker - 2/15/00, p.47
4 stars out of 5 - "...while the hallmarks of the Wu sound are all in place on super-claustro tunes like 'Apollo Man'...the album has a more laid-back and funky feel....SUPREME CLIENTELE drops bombs like a crazy-ass Lancaster."
NME (Magazine) - 12/30/00, p.79
Ranked #36 in NME's "Top 50 Albums Of The Year".
NME (Magazine) - 2/19/00, p.32
7 out of 10 - "...his ability to paint a dense, cinematic picture with his raps: tales as involved and complicated as a Tarantino storyboard...marks [him] as one of the elite Wu....considerably better than the solo follow-ups of other Wu members..."
Pitchfork (Website) - "It's a masterpiece of comic absurdity and cosmic exorcisms, existential paradox and mathematic precision."

Since the release of the Wu-Tang debut, ENTER THE 36 CHAMBERS, Wu-lovers have been treated to a series of solo efforts from individual Clan member. Though all have been strong efforts, only a select handful have proven worthy of standing anywhere near that classic group debut.
SUPREME CLIENTELE, the sophomore album from the Wally-wearing Ghostface Killah, is one of those rare Wu solo efforts to fall into the latter class. With the RZA as the overseer, this album is a triumphant reminder of the influence that the Staten Island-based crew has had on the rap game. Ghost drops jewels of criminology and street ethics over basement-flavored production. And with its various Wu-appearances, SUPREME CLIENTELE is also a glimpse of what the Wu promises to bring in the 21st century.
