My Beautiful Dark Twisted Blueprint 3.5

only a "breathe of fresh air" because the tracks on here are good, but theres nothing groundbreaking. The best you can say its thats mainstream rap at its finest. and more focused refined than Blueprint 3 or MBDTF ever were because they both push each other instead emulating some idea of what a "popular CD" should sound like

havent heard all the tracks but im scared to give it a 4 because i feel that would be too high.
what you said is on point... i feel the same

i still think curren$y's studio albums (PT1 PT2 Weekend at Burnies) are more of a "breath of fresh air" than this is... but we'll see, maybe this will grow on me. there's a little too much going on between all the production and the lyricism though for my taste... its hard to pay attention to the flow when theres so much going in the song, especially with Jay and Kanye spittin as they do. this is just another Kanye highly polished, nearly over-produced album. its tight though. it is what it is though.

3/5 or 3.5

It gets off to a rocky start (I dont think Lift Off and n*ggas in Paris are that good to be honest) but it sort of finds ground in the second half. I like murder in Excellence, Made it In America, Who Gon Stop Me, HAM, The Joy.

It felt like a contemporary version of MBTDF where Kanye let other producers do their best impression.

5/5

I think it's too early to call it a "Classic" musically, but the anticipation, the obsession and the mystique surrounding the entire project has made it a Classic before anyone downloaded the first byte of the album. Normally when an album comes out, people get days, weeks, sometimes even months before they get a chance to register a rating.

Sometimes when you first hear a record it doesn't hit you, but when you pick it up a couple days later, or you watch the video or something strikes you to give it a second chance and BOOM it hits you. WTT doesn't get that luxury. People have been holding back the hate for weeks, and others feel they want others to perceive them as discerning or hard to please so they'll label it "mediocre" or "underwhelming".

To them I say, you're robbing yourself.

As a fan of music, I love this entire record. I had Cassius' "The Rockers EP" before they announced that "Love You So" would get sampled on WTT. Mr. Hudson adds a harsher, yet more appropriate edge to the hook and makes "Why I Love You So" one of the standout tracks on WTT. I think much like MBDTF, you have to appreciate the entire picture of the record instead of picking it apart or dissecting the rhymes vs. beat vs. your taste vs. your reputation...just LISTEN.

9th Wonder's got some fu*kin' nerve trolling on Twitter saying WTT is "alright" when he couldn't craft a beat with the depth of "Made In America" to save his life. 9th's attitude is typical of hip hop fans who hold their opinion in high regard, but let that high regard keep them from stepping off their pedestal and just become a fan. Sit back and just listen to the music.

I feel collectively, WTT is a cross roads between Kanye's production and artistic influence from MBDTF and Jay's lyrical motivation to show he still has a few rounds left in him after critics had him on the ropes after BP3. Kanye's competitive nature kicks in and he does his best to match Jay on every track. There's a bit of old school pass the mic style rhymes and there's a lot of grown man introspection from both Jay and 'Ye.

I don't see the hype from "Lift Off". I think it could become a huge hit, but I definitely think it lacked the punch it could've had. if a hook from Beyonce is your album's low note, how CAN you not love it?

Overall, I think this album will get graded on an unfair curve because it's Jay and 'Ye, but at the end of the day, nobody else has released an album on this level this year. There have been good albums, there have been great albums and there is this album. Hate if you want, but name one artist who had the world up at 12ET waiting to buy an album?
