Kendrickís New Album is not trash
 

 
I was kind of hard on it at first listen but it did grow on me. Die Hard is my favorite song that I canít stop playing at the moment.

The album isnít ground breaking like some people are claiming but itís good. Just wanted to give it its own thread without hate or forced praise.

About to start Halo Infinite back up and play the whole album all the way through to see if more songs will catch on.

Agreed

It grew on me too. I like the album and I appreciate Kendrick for being who he is and giving us some positive uplifting vibes. With that said it’s not a classic , it’s not better than GKMC and it’s nowhere near as good as TPAB. n*ggas calling this new sh*t a classic are just stanning. It’s a good album for sure , it’s more like a piece of art as opposed to being a hard a*s rap album.

Itís a good album, very creative piece of work. Very honest, insightful and vulnerable along with being aggressive lyrically and thought provoking. My only issue is that itís many songs that sound like they could be Kanye or Drake songs done in an unconventional and unorthodox Kendrick way. Regardless I appreciated the album but I donít like it more than GKMC, S80 or TPAB. Iím on the fence on if itís better than DAMN, DAMN was more cohesive and compact of course cause it wasnít a double album but I need to vibe out to the album more. I gotta be in a certain mood to listen to this album because itís so much going on. I wouldnít be surprised if this album racks up a bunch of Grammys.

It's a classic, I'm prob a number of listens ahead of you guys though....

No misses really except for possibly Crown which I even think serves its place but I can see why ppl would want to do without it.

Glad it's growin on you guys, I predict it will do the same for most ppl who listen with an unbiased ear. At minimum it's def better than DAMN.

Albums something you gotta give a few rotations fully through to absorb it.

Was on my 5th listen in the whip today and still finding little sh*t and catching things I missed in the 4 previous play throughs.

He touching on some topics. If you are not listening or too busy complaining about “his alien voice” you are not gonna catch it or just think he’s rambling,

Album pushes an envelope but not so far that it loses you.
Said it after the first listen and still say THIS ALBUM HAS A LOT OF LAYERS.

Not my favorite Kendrick but it’s Top 3

It's cool

But whenever Stans make the "You gotta listen to it 25 time to really get it" argument I'm always like




You can have it. Plenty of classic records that are recognizable as classics out the gate. Don't got time to listen to some sh*t 25 times to convince myself it's above average

That's fine but it actually applies with Kendrick projects like this because he has a lot going on and his objective is to challenge the listener.

No way you're gonna hear Worldwide Steppers first listen and get it in 1 go. Your first reaction is gonna be "this beat is harsh and he's off beat"

After a couple listens it's like "oh sh*t he actually is on beat and he's saying some wild sh*t"

Of course there's classics you get in 1 listen. They're still safe though. Kendricks catering to an advanced palate, not a formula if I do this and give them what they want they will call it a classic.

fu*k that sh*t it's wack.

I agree with you on this.

Music shouldnít be a science project to listen to.

But occasionally itís nice being itís pretty imbalanced now a days.

It's not classic but it's a piece of art? I'm confused because I always see art from past centuries in museums which means it's timeless.

Get these n*ggas out here, Parlae.
You think Curren$y new stuff is better than his classics so I already know you donít know sh*t

Be gone

What have you considered a classic on first listen?

First time I heard GKMC I knew that was a classic

First time I heard MBDTF I knew that was a classic. Same as College Dropout

First time I heard The Blueprint I knew that was a classic.


Maybe I put too much of am emphasis on production. Kendrick always got lyrics, but you can definitely find yourself daydreaming or dozing off during some of his projects on full listen-throughs

lol Its ok to say an album is trash/mid or you dont like it.Music hits everyone different.

We dont know or owe none of these n*ggas to be bias/unbias or stans of them.The internet makes sh*t so weird now.

I can picture the album growing on alot of people and also not having replay to alot of folks.
