The first half is Kendrick's best sonic work, but the latter half is why I can't give this album a perfect score. However, To Pimp A Butterfly filled in every gap that this album had so I can't complain.

Kendrick shows his talent as a story teller in this album. Highlights are Sing About Me/Dying of Thirst and Money Trees. No terrible spot on the album. Personal Favorite Hip Hop Album Currently.

The album that made me start taking rap seriously. Before this album, my only real exposure to rap was radio garbage. Kendrick's story telling and lyricism are incredible.

The best Hip Hop Album, and one of the best albums of all time. What really got me with this album the first time was how good nearly every single song was. It's hard to do that, and it's even harder to that while forging a album that actually has meaning and flow. Well played Kendrick.

Cohesive, tells a fascinating story, and the way Kendrick speaks in his song is almost poetic while still showing off why he's one of, if not the, most talented rapper in the mainstream. While everything is good to differing degrees, there aren't enough absolutely fantastic moments to truly warner it as one of the all-time greats. For an all-time major label debut, though, the case for that is rather easy and a sign of transcendence-level excellence.

Key Cuts: Money Trees, m.A.A.d City, Sing About Me / I'm Dying of Thirst

I don't really understand the desire to create a visual component to this, as it functions so well as a concept album.

Iconic for sure. The biggest shock is how he manages to form *intelligent* bangers like "Swimming Pools" whilst still maintaining the highly personal nature throughout the whole album. None of his work is easy listening, but I found myself completely immersed in his headspace and his world.

Just like "TPAB" there's a huge amount of lyrical creativity along with genuinely great production, everything else I want to say about it has been covered so much better by other people, but this is a historic album that deserves all the plaudits it receives and more.

The album of 2012.
