Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 12/10/98, p.120
4 (out of 5) - "...His words follow their own rhythm into a complex, hypnotic flow....He vocalizes like a shaman, magnetizing you with his chants....more accessible than WU-TANG FOREVER but full of grinding, dark, bass-drunk, anti-dance tracks..."
Entertainment Weekly - 12/18/98, pp.79-80
"...Even if BOBBY DIGITAL IN STEREO barely hangs together as a concept album, RZA's talent as a producer and sound tinkerer bounds to the fore..." - Rating: B
The Wire - 1/99, p.57
"...a strictly 2-dimensional videogame character whose braggadocio perfectly accompanies RZA's digitally enhanced, Hardcore production skills...."
Mixmag - 1/99, p.115
3 out of 5 - "...moments of genius....fantastically pugilistic 'NYC Everything'...'My Lovin Is Digi' turns an old soul record into a lusciously cinematic shag duet..."
CMJ - 12/21/98, p.5
"...not the rebirth of hip-hop prophesied by some fans, it does take the genre in unexpected and enterprising new directions. Forgoing heavy sampling in favor of keyboard-based soundscapes, the album boasts cleaner, more minimalist grooves than RZA's Wu-Tang work..."
The Source - 1/99, p.177
3.5 Mics (out of 5) - "...BOBBY DIGITAL stays within RZA's consistent vision of taking the ghetto mentality to new heights....angular loops bathed in ancient, obscure melodies and Africanesque wails..."
Mojo (Publisher) - 2/99, p.91
"...Stuffed with great abstract riffs, musical and verbal, it manages to be both silly and heroic at the same time..."

The Wu-Tang brand name is to hip-hop as Good Year is to tires. When the Clan is involved, you can be certain you're dealing with a quality product. RZA's long-awaited solo album is no exception. Sure, his Wu-Tang brethren pop up all over the place, and a little help from friends like Ghostface Killah, Method Man and ODB is something any hip-hop artist would be a fool to refuse. But BOBBY DIGITAL ultimately belongs to RZA alone. Dark and atmospheric, it presents a very personal world, constructed by RZA to pull the listener into a unique audio experience. Beat-heavy but not really danceable, well-produced but hardly slick, BOBBY DIGITAL is an expertly textured, occasionally unsettling journey, with the Wu-Tang sound nothing more than a jumping off point. Fans of the clan won't be disappointed, but they'll most likely be surprised.
