Return to the 36 Chambers

Return to the 36 Chambers

Return to the 36 Chambers' intro is a nearly five-minute monologue with Ol’ Dirty Bastard moaning about a woman who wronged him and then pretending to start a poem over sparse piano keys, which sets the tone for a wonderfully odd ride. On “Raw Hide,” Dirty takes his hand at singing, filling a hook with his off-key but relatable singing voice. But it’s not all melodicism and theatrics—over the haunting piano melody of “Brooklyn Zoo,” Dirty kicks two straight minutes of fierce, biting rhymes.
