Dennis Coles doesn’t rap – he squeals and sobs, riding associative streams of ghetto hieroglyphics so knotted they’d make James Joyce’s head spin. This hits collection spotlights the Wu-Tanger’s brilliant attention to detail and his roughneck sensitivity: ”Camay” offsets round-the-way romance tales with spooky piano tinkles, while the nostalgic ”Child’s Play” is rich, RZA-soul bliss. Other experiments with R&B accompaniment chafe, but Ghost transcends even the blandest gloss with histrionic fire.
