Few conceptual albums try to create a full narrative that is both concise and terrain for listeners like this album. Kendrick takes us on a journey through his childhood and early adult life in Compton that address both racial and social topics as well as being extremely fun.

The best rap album for over twenty years. It's utterly fresh and Lamar manages to make something wholly original out of a genre that needed a kick up the ass. Kendrick Lamar is the most important rap artist since Nas. Excellent record.

Good Kid, M.A.A.D City is the best hip-hop album of the generation, along with My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. I don't know what to say that the other reviewers haven't already covered, but I feel like this album has every characteristic I'd ever want out of one. Kendrick can easily tell a story. He can also put on a club-banger with catchy lyrics. I didn't understand the hype when I first listened to this album, but now, I'd consider it to be one of the best hip-hop albums of all time. Kendrick's relatable narrative is something that I often think back on. In the end, Good Kid, M.A.A.D City is an album that I seemed to find myself in.

One of, if not the best rap album ever made. The album tells the journey of life in Compton as it is for Kendrick Lamar. Amazing storytelling and beats guides this album to being a fantastic album. Best tracks are M.A.A.D. City, Money Trees, Backstreet Freestyle, and Sing About Me/Dying Of Thirst. No terrible tracks, but Poetic Justice could be left out and the album would be just fine.

This is my third listen over the years. I don't know if I'll ever "get it". Although someone in the comments said after 30 listens one finally did.

Cons: Lots of this has potential then there's "I pray my dick get big like the Eiffel Tower" and similar ruining almost every song. I have a hard time wanting to get into when you got a bad taste in your mouth every now and then. It's not clever or even funny, imo. And again the skits or recordings only partially add something to the album. The beginning recording was fitting, but the mother/father stuff and homies... I don't care.

Pros: Authentic legit music. It's real and it takes me back to a real South Central, and not a glorified one. There's some really fresh stuff on here. Breath of fresh air. Good Kid is good example of something fresh. First record I'm hearing someone "surviving" the streets instead of glorifying the violence (other than Wyclef's the Carnival).

Oh actually this is the greatest album ever made cause we all know if I say my real opinion then it gets a down vote... watch it happen.

good Kid, MAAD City is one of the most honest albums ever made. Kendrick holds nothing back on his major label debut, telling the world the story of his journey to becoming a man of peace, a man with a message, and what he lost on that journey. Don't just take my word for it, please give this album a listen. Kendrick announced himself as one of music's best storytellers, and one of contemporary musics most important voices. One of the best albums of the 21st century so far.

Great storytelling, great rapping, great literary/historical art, great catchy production. And as time would tell this was not even this guys' prime! Terrific dude Kendrick.

Hip Hop didn't die on october 22nd. Kendrick Lamar showed us that hip-hop is still alive and can be an incredible experience.

All-time hip hop classic. To Pimp a Butterfly is getting all the press lately, but this album is simply better, period. More consistent, better songs.
