Listen, I apologize for my earlier review and how unintelligent it was. Now an absolute lover of Kendrick Lamar's new album, I still think Kendrick sounds lost and looking for a way to express himself here. There's latent talent, for sure, but I just don't find it very fun to listen to. I find it all the more lacking in it's attempts to squeeze radio hits from the material.

This was hailed as an instant rap classic and rightly so. There really is not a bad song on the album--every one of them is great. Instead of riding the quintessential rapper bravado to the hip hop top, he seizes his way with words and the art of story telling and turns it into a more-than-hour-long rap masterpiece. The beats are beautiful and the rhymes exquisite.

Kendrick Lamar is a rapper from out of this world. It amazes me how it just never disappoints. After dropping section.80 which is a very good album he delivers one of the greatest rap albums of all time. His lyrics are just too good and the story he paints throughout the album is just second to none. The production and the lyrics are what make this the masterpiece it is. Oh and Jay Rock's verse on Money Trees goes hard.

Seems like a throwback to the rap of the nineties, which is a style that seems to have largely disappeared. Personally though, I didn't enjoy this album much.

This album has so many counterparts or contradictions coexist harmoniously: lilting accent with audible pronunciation, poetic rhyming with gangsta bellow, philosophic lyrics with catchy timing, and tasteful instrumentation with raw production!

What more can I expect out of it to reckon it a masterpiece? Dis iz crazy cool, man!

took me a few listen to really enjoy it, but now that I do, I'd say that it definitely stands out from other hiphop albums that came out recently.

It's reassuring to know that modern mainstream hip-hop can still be thought provoking and actually have meaning.

Kendrick's lyrics aren't as good on this album as people say and the concept is wasted as a result, but there's a lot of good production and solid rapping. Compare his lyrics here against 2013, it's no contest, he just got better. And he isn't about to stop improving. Next album might be a 5 star.
