Solid 4/5

We gotta stop ignoring the fact that this album was hyped up to be a classic. And instead of ignoring that it wasnt, because it is a Jay and Kanye album, people convince themselves that it is one. The Lyrical content does not match up with the production, and some of the songs were a bit lame. In addition, you cant say "death of autotune", and have autotune on your project! The production really carried this album, as well as the hype.

MBDTF > WTT
Um, what's wrong with the content on New Day? murder to Excellence? No Church in the Wild? Why I Love You? Welcome to the Jungle? It wasn't ALL braggadocio...and braggadocio isn't bad if it's done properly, and on this album it was...

I'll give this a 4.5/5 If Lift Off keeps growing on me like it has been, I'll give it a 5/5

Been playing murder to Excellence, Otis (my personal favorite), The Day & n*ggas in Paris crazy on repeat.

5/5? People really falling for the marketing hard. Some people here are saying it's a classic just based on the magnitude of the two artists coming together. No, the music still has to be dope you fu*kin slaves.

3/5.

Some good verses, but Kanye, as expected, is outrapped almost every time. Way too much singing. Good beats but some questionable sh*t and it sounds like a Kanye album ft. Jay-Z which is not how this should be. Why is their autotune on this after death of autotune? What the fu*k? Some of these hooks are attrocious. Needs more sick rapping.

Don't ever forget what a real classic collabo is supposed to be like, don't ever forget what Nas and Damien Marley came together and created last year with Distant Relatives. "Nah Mean," with them going back and forth over a simple, bangin beat, is the example of how you're supposed to do this sh*t. This album is ehhhh, it's probably the worst album in both their catalogues, especially Jay's. fu*k this sh*t, this is what rap has come to? This is classic? Please, it's gonna be a gang of dope sh*t to come out this year, none of it will get play on the radio, but it'll all be doper than this. This is gonna do big because the marketing is big, but don't confuse that for quality music. The dude on here who wrote the big review calling people haters and telling them to just listen, we listening homie, this ain't what rap fans wanna hear. That sh*t was just like any other pitchfork, hipster style review, it was more about the style and the marketing and the image of the album and the musicians and the magnitude of their fame than the actual music. I ain't falling for the okie doke, nah.

I can agree with that. That is what you get when a rapper/producer does an album with a rapper. It is gonna sound like the producers' album. I feel like Jay held Kanye back on what this album could have been.

i agree with that. i felt ye let jay shine a bit on it. i know that sounds crazy, but recently kanye has k!lled on tracks where him and jay both rap. i wish ye would have came stronger

On first listen it was alright... Some of the other tracks might grow on me but right now I'm really liking:

- No Church in The Wild
- n*ggas in Paris
- Gotta Have It
- Primetime

That Beyonce track is terrible though.

Some of the songs would have been so much better if it wasn't for the really gay background noise effects in so many of the songs

People way too quick to label classics, you can't even rate something a classic on a first listen because you haven't listened enough yet. If you can play out more than 3 songs imo, it's not classic. Plus I would never put this sh*t on the same level as Reasonable Doubt or College Dropout based off of what I've heard.
