1. No Church In The Wild - The opening song sets off the album's theme pretty well. This is my first time hearing Frank Ocean and I'm not amazed by him but he still compliments the vibe though. Beat is sick though. 4/5

2. Lift Off - Not only does this sound like a Beyonce leftover, it doesn't fit. How is the hook going to be longer than the verses? I probably would've enjoyed the song if it had the closing beat for most of the track. Obviously, this is a 'We need one for Top 40' track. 2/5

3. n*ggas In Paris - This track is catchy as fu*k. They both definetly were out of their element here but they made it their own. I love the switch-up at the end. This sh*t cray. 4.5/5

4. Otis - One, this is not 'featuring' Otis Redding, WTF is wrong with them? haha Nevertheless, they went in on this track. It's nice hearing some vintage Kanye sampling here. 5/5

5. Gotta Have It - So this is the result of Neptunes and Ye collab production? I like it. This is probably what would Neptunes tracks would sound like if they didn't use live instruments. This is an above average track but nothing to praise too much. 3.5/5

6. New Day - Best track on the album for me. Sounds like something Ye didn't want on Dark Fantasy and saved for this album. Wished they had more tracks like this on the album. RZA did a great fu*kin job here. 5/5

7. That's My bi*ch - Liked the track when it leaked and like it even more, now that it's finished. Love the vibe the track has. Hook is dope. 4/5

8. Welcome To The Jungle - Swizz needs to stick to adlibs and not provide hooks. The beat is dope. I would of preferred some scratching for the hook. 3.5/5

9. Who Gon Stop Me - This track is a problem. They both need to experiment like this more often. I hope this becomes a single in the future. The track just goes harder as it progresses. 5/5

10. murder To Excellence - Sounds like another Dark Fantasy track but saved for this album. My third favorite on this album. This is just great hip-hop here. 5/5

11. Made In America - Definetly should've been a leftover. Yet again, why Frank Ocean? He's mediocre at best. Sounds more like John Legend should've been on this track. Song blows 1/5

12. Why I Love You - This is my second favorite track on the album. This is a great track for Jay to go off on. He speaks to Ye like a true mentor. Great way to close the album officially. Mr. Hudson did great also. 5/5

13. Illest Motherfu*ker Alive - So, this sounds like it should've followed Welcome To The Jungle obviously and if you ask me, it should've. Why is this a bonus track? Made In America should've been a bonus cut. Beat is so dope. 5/5

14. H.A.M. - Still love this track but I didn't at first. It didn't sit well with me at first but as soon as it did, whoa! It just bleeds Epic. Should've kept this from the public and opened the album with it. 4/5

15. Primetime - No I.D. never really disappoints, does he? Another bonus cut that's great. 4/5

16. The Joy - Loved it when it dropped and still love it. Not much to say that Curtis Mayfield isn't a feature and that Pete Rock is amazing. 5/5

Like they weren't talking about their success almost every song before it.

i like how kanye and rza adopted and mimmicked each other's style of production on this cd. otis song produced by kanye sounded like something the rza would make, while the rza produced track sounds like a kanye beat. i wanna see kanye and the rza make more beats together.

Ok I finally got to spin this 5-6 times through aided with some kush......there has been so much said and still to be said about this album that I am not gonna bother doing a full break down and try to keep this real short....which will still be too long for some lol
Just for context I am a fan of both artists, but I am not a blind follower of them either. I thought BP3 was very mediocre but thought that MBDTF was a great album. I think overall this album is basically a mix of the better portions of those 2 albums. I find WTT a little less overproduced than Kanye's last joint. And song wise its much better than BP3. It is exactly what I expected to hear from these 2. Is it what I wanted? No, these dudes were on cruise control for this lyrically although Jay is not as bad as some people are saying. He has some real slick sh*t that people are just missing.

Overall entertaining album that will play well in the whip. As good as this album is, I think based on the caliber of these 2, it could have been better, especially lyrically. But I get exactly what they are doing and for those that dont "get" the theme and concept of this album I can understand them really hating it. So yeah I like this album, but I will say in comparison to some other albums this year, it doesn't blow away the competition. I've been listening to Royce's album in between listens of WTT and I've got to say Royce also surprised and came through with an album that is in IMO on par with WTT.
I still think "Greatest Story..." from Saigon still hangs even with its material being recorded years ago.
And for me it shows me how good "Section 80" is, because I still think its better than WTT
Best review on the internet.

I get tired of that weird music at the end of some of the tracks.
Also I had to delete like 4 tracks.
Beats on those too weird.

4/5 for those reasons.

It's been awhile since I listened to an album top to bottom like this.
It's hot

No Church in the night is braggadocio?
Welcome to the Jungle?
Why I love you?
The Joy?


Damn and people compare this classic to Carter IV.

Terrible album and way overhyped. Game's album off 1 listen is better than this trash sh*t.
