    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.

    But to be fair, you knew you were going to love it before it ever leaked. You've got great taste in music, but for this one I'd say your take on it is far from objective.

    Definitely lol. I'm just happy it fulfilled (at least my) expectations.

    I also really like this needledrop review and I usually disagree with him.

    I mean it's obviously album of the year but I wonder how it'll stand the test of time. I said before that I can't really think of a better (major label) debut since...idk College Dropout? But that album has aged terribly in my opinion.

    Please don't even compare it to College Dropout haha. That album is by far my favorite LP of his when he was stilll in love with soul samples and had that goofy yet innocent sense of humor! Just listen to "Two Words" again. He definitely put his passion and soul into that track. How can you forget about "Never Let Me Down" with Jay-Z...so good!

    So far 8 albums are over a 9

    Frank Ocean "Channel Orange" (9.5)
    Kendrick Lamar "good kid, m.A.A.d city (9.5)
    Godspeed You! Black Emperor "Alleluja! Don't Bend! Ascend!" (9.3)
    Grizzly Bear "Shields" (9.1)
    Beach House "Bloom" (9.1)
    Swans "The Seer" (9)
    Fiona Apple "The Idler…" (9)
    Tame Impala "Lonerism" (9)

    The Weeknd's Trilogy and the Avalanches' (if they actually put it out this year) album could also get 9+'s this year. Anything else coming up have the potential?

    There's going to be what, one new song on the Weeknd physical release? Really don't think that should factor in to the 2012 AOTY race.

    I think Big Boi and Ghostface still have albums in November. Scott Walker in December.

    I think there will be 3 new songs that should hopefully make the flow of the Trilogy format smoother. (Each mixtape was 9 songs, they are each now 10) I agree though, I'd much rather he come out with a proper separate release for his debut like Frank Ocean and Kendrick Lamar. They left impressions with Nostalgia/Ultra and Section 8.0 but made sure to put out much stronger debut's that surpassed most people's high expectations, I don't see why The Weeknd isn't doing the same.

    I didn't know The Replacement's were doing anything new, I'd be ecstatic to see them at Coachella!! I forgot about Big Boi's album but I will be surprised if it is better than gk,mc.

    Do you think Tyler could get a better score with his second album? I'd love to see that but don't have my expectations set too high for Wolf.

    Based on the trailer for the album, I'd say there is a strong, strong chance it lands a 9.0 or higher.
