RZA's greatest productions are also his sloppiest. Minor key miracles such as "Liquid Swords" and "Winter Warz" sound like the sonic equivalent of snuff films -- dark, grimy and deeply transgressive. It's a marvel that music this inaccessible and insular was ever popular, though that probably has more than a little to do with the charisma of emcees ODB and Method Man.
