One of the most criminally overrated rap albums. It is good, but doesn't compare to his Kendrick's last two albums. Big Fish
Theory is much more interesting honestly.

I was very hyped for this album to be released, after the incredible To Pimp A Buterfly, and what I obtained after listening to this album was not exactly what I was expecting. Instead, DAMN has considerably less instrumentation and more generic beats and more radio-friendly tracks. I noticed this and it didn't bother me so much because its not necessarily a bad thing, I enjoyed a lot this album and still do. It wasn't the direction I expected Kendrick would take, thinking that maybe he could still be on the more ambitious road, instrumentaly and sonically speaking, because the lyrics and rapping by Kendrick are very good here. This is a very enjoyable album with very high points like DNA, Element, Pride and Lust, and it expands the different approaches Kendrick has done in his carreer. This isn't Kendrick's best effort, but I still believe that he has a lot more to offer us in the future, definitely one of the best of 2017

This is a really good album. I don't think it's a great one though. It's not as good as To Pimp a Butterfly or my personal favourite Good Kid, MAAD City, but it's a really solid album that flows well. It's overproduced and more commercial with more trap-influenced production, but that doesn't detract from several great songs like "Humble", "DNA", "Pride", "Love" and "XXX"

After the genius of the preceding albums this came as a disappointment to me. Not being the biggest fan of rap means I was always walking on shaky ground but, Good kid, and, Pimp, were the kind of records that broke down the boundaries of genre. This album though was a much tougher listen for me. I just don't think it's that good but not being an expert on the genre I may be wrong. It just did not ring my bell.

Overall, I found this album to be a step down from To Pimp A Butterfly. I think rap/hip-hop purists would find a lot to like here, but I found myself drawn more by the mixture of genres in Lamar's earlier work than the collection of music here.

I love Kendrick, I really do. He's one of my favorite artists of all time. To Pimp A Butterfly and good kid, m.A.A.d city are some of the greatest albums of all time. I also love Section.80 and untitled unmastered. So when DAMN. came out, I was hyped. Don't get me wrong, this album is great, but is definitely not my favorite of 2017. All the tracks are great, but the flow can sometimes be choppy. LOVE is definitely the weakest track on the album, with uninspired lyrics and not being able to stand up to the rest of the great tracks. Not to say LOVE. isn't a bad song, but it's not the best. The album does feel somewhat cut short, with the "story" of the album not feeling that well put together. Besides all this, I do love this album, even though it is not one of my favorites in his discography, it still holds up on it's own.

Favorite Tracks: DNA., PRIDE., XXX., FEAR., DUCKWORTH.

Worst Track: LOVE.

8/10

It's a very nice album, but I have to say that Flower Boy by Tyler, The Creator is better.

Fav. tracks: FEAR. (best Hip-Hop/Rap song of the year for me), PRIDE., DUCKWORTH., ELEMENT.
