Um, I honestly like Cuban Linx and Liquid Swords both more than 36 Chambers, so it's obviously Illmatic for me.

I gotta go with Illmatic, but of course 36 Chambers is one of my favorites also. Honestly, I would put OB4CL ahead of 36 Chambers as the best Wu album.

Actually, I say Illmatic because its lyrically superior with more depth and deeper subject matter. The old school jazzy tracks for Nas the Prophet to spit over are laid down by legendary producers and not only that, but Nas carries the album from the vocal side all on his own, save for a classic verse from Az.

Enter The Wu: More hardcore and innovative

Illmatic: More lyrical and relevant.

Both Masterpieces of Hip-Hop. Let's leave it at that and enjoy them.

However, I'll always prefer OB4CL and Liquid Swords over 36 Chambers, both lyrically and production wise. Those albums both had a clear direction of where the album was going. When I listen to 36 Chambers, to me it is much more flat-out hardcore sh*t that moves crowds at a concert... it can't touch most of the tracks off Liquid Swords or Cuban Linx, IMO. But that's just me...

The two greatest albums of all time... Every time i'm asked this question, I alternate because I simply can not chose a favorite between these two. I voted 36 Chamber though because I knew Illmatic would be winning. The combination of RZA's production and 9 incredible MC's makes 36 Chambers untouchable.

im'a have to go with illmatic. i was jut listening to both those cd a few weeks back and illmatic is the better of the two. but 36 chambers is still a classic to me. i know some new york n*ggas feel as if illmatic is the parameter to measure other albums..........right now i'm listening to some old kane..........cause this new sh*t in hiphop just ain't giving me what i need.
