    I've come to the same conclusion after several listens. I mean, it's really good...but for the most part is missing that wonderful stoney haze that the first album did so well. This one is very poppy, it sounds very influenced by Todd Rundgren's Something/Anything?. Mind Mischief and Apocalypse Dreams are my current faves, but nothing on this album comes anywhere near matching the greatness of those first two songs on their debut.

    I think Lonerism is the better album. I'm going to give the first one another spin though. Been a bit.

    for starters I can't stand the absurdity of that first track (didn't like it live either). it's all of the quibbles I'd had with the band here and there in the past wrapped up in a single song. so much silly melodrama. the shorter tracks are solid though.

    I like the album, but still don't think the first 10 minutes of that track are very worthwhile.

    I liked it. Kind of underwhelming though IMO.

    Wow. I listened to most of the album, and I'm not real crazy about it. Compton is awesome, but so much of it sounds like the mindless bullshit that fills the FM radio waves these days.

    LOLLLLLLLLLLL WOW

    Listen again and clear out your ears big guy

    If this is what fills the FM radio waves then we live in a perfect world

    This is hip hop done right

    aka well-deserved 9.5, I would have loved a tic higher. This is a more fully conceived album than Frank's Channel Orange. I think Kendrick succeeds more.

    Also, this is really well put and exactly what I said to myself about the album. Kendrick balances the heavy-handed concept record with perfect beats and vibes:

    All this weighty material might make good kid, m.A.A.d city sound like a bit of a drag. But the miracle of this album is how it ties straightforward rap thrills-- dazzling lyrical virtuosity, slick quotables, pulverizing beats, star turns from guest rappers-- directly to its narrative.

    I wonder if Pitchfork will include Weeknd's 'Trilogy' in the best albums running.

    I've had gk,mc on repeat all weekend pretty much.

    Listened again. After a second spin - still not that hot on it. The Art of Peer Pressure is really great, Backseat Freestyle is fucking awful. The rest falls somewhere in between.

    the lamar hyperbole is silly. wasn't even the best hip hop album released this week. it's a good album though. (i think backseat freestyle is one of the best tracks on the album fwiw)

    You guys are crazy. M.A.A.D. City is the most complete hip-hop album this year. Kendrick continues to get better with every release. A 9.5 was too low. 9.7 at least.

    I really like a lot of songs on the Kendrick Lamar album, but there is some pretty boring shit on there too. 9.5 seems way too high.

    I listened to the first half on the walk to work today and I really liked every track, but Backseat Freestyle is just something else.

    Yeah... I'm tired of defending GKMC... Obviously I love it. If you don't, I don't see how.

    But yeah, maybe you'll come around.
