    Not very optimistic for this as someone who really only LOVES Reasonable Doubt, The Blueprint, and Black Album as full albums... maybe he still has it in him, but I'm not too hopeful.

    It's fun to go back and listen to his classics from time to time when he releases some new garbage. I think he's more than earned the legacy and reputation he has

    Seems like some Sprint stores will be having a premiere of this at 11PM eastern, then will be up at midnight on Tidal.

    This is pretty cool honestly. Not a classic or anything but easily his best in quite a while to me.

    On first listen, this is probably my least favorite album of his since like... Kingdom Come

    He's rhyming in a way that's totally different from the rest of his discography.
     
  14. Kanye fans are mad though it seems.

    Jay Z was one of my first favorite rappers, I wanna hear this so bad but it's never gonna come out outside of Tidal is it?
     
  17. Music twitter is more on debating if they can call it a classic yet or not ATM.

    The Kanye lines are definitely sad to see, but I think it says a lot that they come off way more as disappointment, like a father would have, rather than anger or beef/feud

    Lyrically this album is extremely heavy and emotional, he unpacks a ton here that's really intense. Definitely his most emotional in a long, long while. His delivery and flow feels a bit weird to me, kinda feels less emotional over the emotional lyrics. The "empty"-feeling production is definitely a bit off-putting, but as the album went on I came around to it a bit more, more listens will definitely be useful for this album

    This album wasn't very good tbh.

    In legitimate shock at the overwhelming positive consensus, psyched to listen

    I've fucked with most of this on my way to work. Not listening to closely but there's a few dumbass lines throughout. Hov sounds good at least

    approx. 3rd coolest Steve on here Supporter

    This really kills the album for me. Some of the lyrics were really cringe-y too.
