Not even close to the level of To Pimp a Buttefly, though it's hard to blame him since that is such an absolute masterpiece. That said, there are some songs here that really raise eyebrows. Especially "LOVE". I just can't imagine why someone as musically savvy as Kendrick could make such a bland, sell-out song. There are a few decent ones ("DNA", "LUST", "FEAR"). But also some that just wallow in a hookless sea ("ELEMENT", "GOD", "YAH") Overall, I truly am very disappointed by this album, and am equally sad that many are praising this album even though it pales in comparison to Kendrick's earlier work.

I'm not judging the lyrics, but only the sound content. His voice and rapping style annoys me a little bit. The beats just repeat weak melodies in a single chord all the time, it's pretty boring. It's an extremely overrated album. I miss the old hip hop sound from the past decades.

Kendrick, never ever in your motherfuckin life collaborate with Rihanna ever again. Leave that crap to Drake. Jesus that shit was bad.

Overall, this is easily Kendrick's weakest album so far, and it features his worst songs to date (Loyalty, God, Love and Yah).


Pride, Humble, Feel and XXX were highlights for me.

Very good album from Kung Fu Kenny. All the songs did something for me. As for the order of the songs, it could be a little better. Still a fan, though.

Favorite tracks: DNA, Element, Pride, the entire second half

Least favorite track: Yah

Might not be his best album, but DAMN. is a very solid collection of songs. Nice to see Kendrick come back to the spirit of the time on these type of beats.

What does it say about Kendrick Lamar, that while this album seems to be a bit of a drop in standard, it's still better than the vast majority of not only hip-hop, but music? Kendrick is a master. Not every album is going to be a masterpiece. This one is simply very very good.

DNA, Duckworth and Lust are great, but the poppy production and underwhelming songs leave me slightly dissatisfied. Not to say this album doesnt have its moments

Music is completely subjective, the people that completely disregard an entire genre are the worst type of music listeners.

And what do you mean 'Be objective please'? This is our opinions, just because your ill-advised childish opinion calls an entire genre weak doesn't make it objective at all, the only fact here is that you are the problem.

Especially a person who has only 7 reviews and their interests are just 'rock', a single genre.

It's people like you that push back the art is music and have been doing so for hundreds of years.
