Album: Bobby Digital, Digi Snacks (Bodog)

Bobby Digital is the alter-ego of RZA of the Wu-Tang Clan. This guise has acted as a repository for his more idiosyncratic, left-field ideas, with often stunning results.

But 'Digi Snacks' is a mixed bag. "No Regrets" consists of lazy regional shout-outs, but there are some neat lyrical touches: RZA vows to transform the listener "like the war did London" and on "Booby Trap" he promises to "Shrink your heart to a raisin". There are some pleasantly squeaky guest vocals from Thea Van Seijen, although I never thought I'd hear Barbra Streisand on a Wu track ("Put Your Guns Down" samples "Woman In Love").
