"After a few listens "

LMAO. You keep sh*t in your mouth for a while, eventually you'll get used to it.... But it's still sh*t.
cosign. I feel the same way about songs growing on you. Its ironic we use the term "grows on you" because the only thing that could grow on you is bacteria, infection, cancer, and bloodsucking leeches

Like the album a lot. I've been playing it on repeat all day, enough now that I can make accurate observations about it.

LIKE:
* The production on pretty every track
* A good mix of different sounds, and nice use of short instrumental interludes to split said sounds
* A solid mix of braggadocious and conscious rap
* Some of Jay-Z's most inspired vocal performances since "American Gangster," namely "Welcome To The Jungle," where he spazzez, and single-handedly saves a stock beat from Swizz "Hack" Beatz
* Neither rapper obviously outshines the other, and both are given plenty of mic time, although Jay probably got a little more
* This album feels like an "event," from the performances from the two emcees to the production
* Standout cuts: No Church In The Wild, New Day, Who Gon Stop Me, murder To Excellence, Why I Love You, Illest Motherfu*ker Alive, Primetime

DISLIKE:
* The "rapping," or lack thereof, on "Lift Off" basically ruins the song before it can even get started
* Some of the songs (while dope) seem a little bit unfinished, or maybe more like musical interludes (Otis, Gotta Have It, Welcome To The Jungle)
* Who decided to cut Illest Motherfu*ker Alive from the final tracklist?
* Some of the mixing seems off, namely "New Day," where the Nina Simone vocal samples nearly drown out the rapping

Overall, the album met my lofty expectations, and I expect this to be getting plenty of spins through the fall. Just a very good rap album by two of the best of this generation. I tend to ignore the whole "trash/classic" wars that are inevitably waged here on Boxden, because albums CAN exist in the plane in between, believe it or not. Watch The Throne gets four mics from me.

what's that interlude they play 3-4 times through the album at the end of songs? from a tv show or something, what it's from?

first i ain't d!ckriding the album.. i think it's dope, with a few weak tracks... no classic

but this sh*t is mean...


Tears on the mausoleum floor
Blood stains on the Colosseum doors
Lies on the lips of priests
Thanksgiving disguised as a feast
Rolling in Rolls Royce Corniche
Only the doctors got this, I’m hiding from police
Cocaine seats, all white
Like I got the whole thing bleached
Drug dealer chic
I’m wondering if a thug’s prayers reach
Is Pius pious cause God loves pious?
Socrates asked whose bias do y'all seek?
All for Plato, screech
I’m out here balling, I know yall hear my sneaks
Jesus was a carpenter, Yeezy laid beats
Hova flow the Holy Ghost, get the hell up out your seats, preach



the first track is imo the best on the album... with Jay delivering one of his best verses in the past few years...

most people wont get the Pius, Socrates and Plato references but if yall n*ggas do ya reserch yall would see how dope it is, especially cause it fits the theme perfectly
