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

@pacovil
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.

I originally rated this album 95%. He revealed it's meant to be played in reverse order, and it's an incredible difference (worthy of the extra 5% rating).

The highlight for me was the track 'XXX'; the production on this album is very sleak

This is the first Kendrick Lamar album I've listened to in full, hence meaning I'm not qualified to judge DAMN. in the context of his discography.

What I can say is that no other album this year has convinced me, carried me or been on repeat as much as DAMN. Indeed, it's the best hip hop album I've heard for years.

Lamar is a story teller. His words entice you and create a narrative within each song, which is then conveyed through the outstanding music that fills this album. And more to the point, his words are interesting and engaging. He challenges you, explains to you and entertains you. It's mesmerising, and brilliant.

More to the point, his words are astoundingly relevant, whether in the scope of his life or the politics of America. This album is destined to join other records throughout history that capture their time perfectly (other examples for the US include Daydream Nation, Nevermind and Darkness On The Edge of Town. among others). As for now, it's something that needs to be listened to and something we need to understand.

And then there's the music itself. The structure of the album is flawless, I'm still recovering from the beat switch on DNA, Feel is on the most down to earth songs I've ever heard, as is Pride, Humble is a floor-filler like no other, Bono's lines in XXX have been on my mind constantly since I first heard it and Fear deserves to go down as one of the most important hip-hop songs ever. Duckworth is fantastic too.

DAMN's importance as a statement on modern life and as music cannot be underestimated. It's still impressing me after numerous listens, and I've still got a long way to go in truly understanding it.

Now, about those other Kendrick Lamar albums...

His work is thick/verbose. Always a hill to climb for me, but typically rewarding and glad I did.

Kendrick Lamar never ceases to amaze. Several albums in his career and still his charm hasn't died.
