Then don't disregard the most important part of a concept album

9.2/10 for what it is

Production overall>>>
Concept and follow through >>>
Marketing trick >>>>> this is probably why I give him so much props
Lyrics were 7.5/10 though
Track to track production flow >>>>

As far as comparisons to GKMC, BS flows way better production wise and Cole's effort and emotion shows more clearly

Movie like skits and lyrics put GKMC ahead
It's a pretty loosely-constructed concept album, to be honest. It's not fu*king with the great rap concept albums like A Long Hot Summer, Disposable Arts, 4 Eva n a Day, A Grand Don't Come for Free, GKMC, etc. I agree with you that the production, especially the mood of the production, was impeccable. I think Cole was flowing his a.ss off too, I just don't think some of the songs are very good and/or are repetitious. The middle of the album really slows down. I think this album could be an out and out classic if it was 10 songs (not including skits):

Villuminati
Land of the Snakes
Power Trip
Mo Money
Trouble
Rich n*ggaz
Forbidden Fruit
Chaining Day
Ain't That Some sh*t
Let Nas Down

Don't get me wrong, I like Runaway and I like Crooked Smile. But how powerful would this album be as a 10 song album that finished with Let Nas Down? That symbolism of that, combined with the quality of these songs, would make this easily the best album of the year. Just my opinion.

I wanna see if he has some explanatory writing in the album booklet though. To give some more insight if he even ever decides to do that.

But I think it's necessary to include the skits/interludes as a part of the album to fully judge it. Like Masta Ace with ALHS had like 6 interludes on that joint. Kendrick had a skit after almost every song. If anything, I think Cole missed he mark with the immersion part of a concept album

overall its better than his first album. all im asking for is improvement and he did that. i ain't mad at him

i wonder if he already flipped the same sample as suit and tie before that song dropped(chaining day)
