Most overhyped album ever. I knew I was going to be disappointed, but I'm not feeling it that much. Guess I just don't like Kendrick's style too much I'll give it another listen before I condemn the album though

I don't think a song by song review can do this album justice at all.

I might be biased. Been fu*kin wit kendrick before the xxl cover. Put a couple of my homies on dude too. Liked the album initially. Rode to it to and from work, sh*t got better and better as I listened to it 2 or 3 times. Strong a.ss debut, didn't dissapoint at all. Dope concept, great execution.

Sad thing is, most young cats hate to hear anything resembling something positive.

4.5/5. First physical copy I'm copping in forever.

The most cohesive album I've heard in YEARS...... you cannot name one person (aside from Nas) right

now who can put it all together like this. The album forces you to listen more than once because you

cannot piece together the whole story in one listen. Everything flows so smoothly that you turn it on

and before you know it your at track 8. I disagree with the skits being too lengthy, but its just my

opinion. They are what really brings the album together, other than that great review sir. 5/5 in my

book tho

I didnt like Backseat freestyle when the song leaked, but when you hear it with the rest of the album its dope. I think alot of the songs on the album are like that. Individually, the songs arent that great, but collectively & with the interludes connecting the songs, its a really good album.

Good review, brutha. While I agree it's a good album, I'm not sure if I'd give it a 4.anything, or four at all for that matter - probably about a 3.5. Why? Because, as I said I feel it's a GOOD album, not a great- solid one like I expected. Like I was anticipating. Like he was ampin' it up to me. Son called this "The Greatest Rap Album done in the the last 20 years"; now, it's cool to have confidence and believe in your 'art' - but with that statement like that you yourself raise the bar high, and in turn gotta deliver and through; ....not hand this out.

I skip a few tracks (namely Poetic Justice, cannot stand that track). Like a few tracks. Love a few, but ...idk, man. I'm not impressed much. I picked up listenin' to Kendrick during the EP/Overly Dedicated days, THAT's the heat I was lookin' for. Something like that.
i believe the hype caused many to be disappointed. being an avid boxden user, seeing these fan boys hype it up was sickening cause formulated a negative view for a lot of other posters.

is it a great album? yes.

is it album of the year? no.

Your opinion and that's cool, but I just don't see how this isn't better than everything he's done. It's so much more cohesive than the EP and OD, and even S.80, but with the same quality of lyrics with even better beats.

See that's based on opinion, LIG got a lot of play when it 1st came out but nowhere near the amount GKMC has been getting from me.

I don't see how it makes someone a sheep if they think GKMC was better and AOTY cause it was a great album.
