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.

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.

This was a pretty big album (well it still is). Many people say that this is saving Hip Hop. While I'm not a big expert on Hip Hop (I've been getting into it for the past year) I can somehow see why people are in love with this and other work by Kendrick. This is grim depiction what supposed to be Kendrick's early life. Should be grateful to Dr. Dre for advocating Kendrick, because he saw something special in him. This record definitely shows why. Can't wait to listen to To Pimp A Butterfly...

Being a fan of rock music and many of its forms/subgenres and such and staying clear of anything different, I decided to see what it would be like branching out. Wow, am I glad I did that. This is so fantastic, I would recommend this as well as Kendrick Lamar's next album, To Pimp A Butterfly, to any fan of music.

It takes some really impressive music to impress someone who never liked the genre in question until that point. Respect.
