The album is trash.... people dont realize that it was setup. Look at how fast it came out. Here is no real quality in it. It aas a front to have another platnium album, even though its trash. You think he cares about the reviews.

the most important thing to look at when grading an album is shelf life. do you listen to it a couple of times and toss it aside, or do you keep going back to it over and over? the ones you play repeatedly are the special ones so of course you can't rate an album in one day

This n*gga Jay....

Sometimes, he says the dumbest sh*t. If you want someone to listen to your album, you expect them not to rate it? Makes no sense....

The
he's right.

my first listen of yeezus i was like WTF?...my 2nd listen i was still WTF?

my third listen a few days later it started to grow on me a bit and i begun to appreciate it more.

The internet did not k!ll the album review. The whack a.ss album did.
Like it or not the people have spoken up not a lot of people feel Magna Carter Holy Grail because it is inferior to a lot of older albums. The sh*t just sucks and no were are not hating on Jay-z it is what it is sh*t had two songs one that was dope one that was ight and the rest was straight doo doo Hershey squirts. Instead of worring about the review process take yo a.ss back to lab and come out with a dope project

n*ggas make trashy albums and want you to listen over and over till it grows on you I remember when albums were bagging the first time you heard them and you kept listening not just for it to grow on you but because THE sh*t WAS JUST GOOD. Rap has fallen off hard

A lot of smart dumb n*ggas in here. It's not that you can't get an idea for whether or not you like an album in a day; it's that the Internet is a race to pump out the first opinion. We went from album reviews in a day to people live-tweeting their reactions as they listen. People are in a hurry to share their opinions before formulating them. Look at how people treat albums here: download, run a 5-minute skimthrough for beats and hooks, cherry pick joints for the iPhone, and do it again once the next ZippyShare file is done. There's no absorption.

What Jay did differently with MCHG is distribute lyrics before the album dropped. By extension, he facilitated these knee-jerk reactions. Part of the criticism and review process, at least back in the day, is/was to interpret lyrics for their merit. People had lyrics before they heard the song in his case, so they were able to say it was mediocre before there were properly tagged versions on the net.

By the same token, albums used to bang when The Source handed down a five-mic review before it dropped. I remember not giving a fu*k about Aquemini until word came down that The Source called it classic.
