A day in the life of Compton. This is a fantastic concept album as we journey with Kendric through a new lens that strips away all the glamour, women, and highlights of thug life. Gritty and realistic.

Amazing album, probably the best rap album of the last decade. It's up there with Nas' Illmatic and the flow of the album is slickly delicious. It has some ground-breaking tracks like m.A.A.d city, Money Trees and Swimming Pools but at the lowest points like the last two tracks it still stands its ground as great rap songs. Probably my least favourite track is Backstreet Freestyle but it's still worthy. One problem though, the track average ratings are way, and I mean way too high.

The album draws you in with its catchy beats in its 'pop-songs' and... after a few listens... leaves you in complete awe of its production, lyrics, and Kendrick's delivery which shifts from intense to almost tear-jerking. The album is a journey through the streets as told through the observations of Kendrick, and I don't think it could be better.

I don't understand how people think music has been getting worse every year. 2012 was one of the greatest years for music. This album is a masterpiece and will go down as one of the best.

The 3rd most important album in my life. Kendrick develops his place in life in the first nine songs. "Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst" is the critical point in this album. The final tracks are about realization and self-discovery. Powerful and meaningful, the album has much to offer from its lessons and its music. Deserves all the acclaim it receives.

This album is fucking awesome. I am in no way a big hip hop/rap music fan, but this album is simply amazing. Kendrick Lamar transcends rap stereotypes in this album about the effect someone's upbringing can have on who they grow up to be. Plus, this album has a song about peer pressure that is actually good.
