This solo offering from one of the more enigmatic members of the Wu-Tang Clan is one of the more unconventional creations to emerge from the world of Wu. The complex urban narrative of Maxine combines a colorful sense of detail worthy of Willie Dixon's Wang Dang Doodle with the individualistic quirkiness of P-Funk and the sonic invention that's come to be expected of Ghostface and his Wu-Tang cohorts. The lush R&B trappings of Theodore borrow a page from the P.M. Dawn book, as smooth vocal harmonies mesh agreeably with emotive rapping. The angular intersection of pop, R&B, and hip-hop on the melodic Ghost Showers is suggestive of latter-day Prince. Throughout Bulletproof Wallets, the most impressive thing is the way Ghostface manages to make each track immediately accessible and infectious regardless of the degree of sonic invention.
