Ol' Dirty Bastard's Return To The 36 Chambers gets a proper double-vinyl reissue. Ya'll should already know the deal with Return To The 36, but in addition to the classic album, you also get hooked up with extended artwork, liner notes, plus ODB milestones and accolades on the included insert. Here's the original Lab review of Return To: "The One Man Army Ason has become one of the most misunderstood and maligned artists of our time. All you got to do is give the man a chance cuz he's one of the most human mcs out there. Some people just don't understand the beauty of two straight minutes of making that croaking noise with your throat. Live and uncut when you feel the earth tremble beneath your balls. For real though, this album is a slept on classic like a second round draft pick steal. RZA's production is untouchable on here matching the Dirty style perfectly with the two singles "Brooklyn Zoo" and "Shimmy Shimmy," plus "Hippa to the Hoppa(," "Baby C'mon," "The Stomp" and of course everybody's favorite: "Rawhide" with Meth and Raekwon. ODB is for the Children." Recommended.
