Ghostface Killah - Ghostdini Wizard Of Poetry In Emerald City (2009) Retail CD
This is being touted as Ghostface Killah's R&B record, but there was always a GFK of the R&B vibe, already present on Bulletproof Wallets and The Pretty Toney Album [Explicit].
Some of it is, admittedly, further into the R&B sound than previous stuff - "Lonely", in particular, is a proper R&B tune, but it's saved from any kind of cheesiness by the lyrical genius: "Don't be suprised if you see me on the train like a homeless man who's lost his way/ I'm so lonely". I haven't seen this kind of pathos in R&B since Otis Redding.
Paragraphs of Love - this is a classic song. It starts off with a kindmore… of restaurant piano, and builds into a story of, well... I think the title says it all. Killah's very slightly comical delivery is what makes it.
Elsewhere - an appearance by John Legend (Let's Stop Playin) that doesn't do as much as it promises. Legend is kind of shoehorned into the track, and could have been left off it to no detriment. Back Like That, a superfluous reappearance of this Fishscale track, remixed and with K West all over it.
With 40 knocking at the door (Ghostface Killah was born in 1970), there's little evidence here of a creative slowdown - the opposite of that, in fact.
Wizard of Poetry maybe isn't quite the masterpiece that Fishscale was, but then again, maybe it is? It's a different kind of record, so time will tell.
