Didn't reach the expectations, but overall an extremely good hip hop album.

Not sure why people look down on this album, it's great! It's everything that I think MBDTF failed to be (ya, I don't personally like that one too much).

A pretty good collaboration album by Jay-Z and Kanye West. I believe that Kanye brings out the best of Jay-Z in this album.

From Sean
Although certainly not the crowning achievement of either's career, Throne turned out to be a solid album with some great tracks

It's a decent album, but it's carried entirely by the two personalities behind the microphone. The production is a little scattershot and pales in comparison to anything West did on MBDTF. When they're rapping about world issues there are some good lines, but when they're rapping about fame and needing eight arms to hold all their watches or whatever I just get bored. Even the guest spots are better than the actual musical content. So yeah, fun collaboration but a little disappointing when placed next to the other stuff they've done.

From dmercado
Jay and Ye doing whatever they want because they already own the world anyways. And I won't lie, they're pretty convincing that they actually do. The lyrics are clever as always, and the production is good, but it lack in subject matter, unless worshiping these two is the kind of thing you're into.

From 9999
A very lazy, mediocre album filled with derivative rapping and uninspired hooks. Apart from some good beats and a decent tracks (No church in the wild), there isn't much to save here.
