If you downloaded the album before this blog post went up, DOWNLOAD IT AGAIN, because it sounds much better now, and better for the ages.
Here's what happened: I spent so much time mixing this record that by the time it was "done" I just put it out there not thinking much of it, and it wasn't until several days later that I actually sat down and listened to it. And oh my god did the mixing suck. Some tracks were OK, some only had minor problems. But some were just horrible, it was all a big mess.
So for the past couple months I basically went temporarily insane and remixed the whole album track by track several times over until (to my ears at least) it sounded better. I felt like I would be doing a disservice to the Wu had it not been otherwise. This wasn't so much of a perfectionist thing really as it was the result of a common studio problem, which is what can happen when long hours are spent mixing and a type of tunnel vision (or tunnel "hearing") develops. Anyway I'm declaring this project "done" done.
BUT THAT'S NOT ALL
The instrumental version is now available as well, sans goofy dialogue samples:
Much respect to everyone who was feeling the rough tracks, koi videos, beat previews etc.
