From Kurtco
After "GKMC" everyone thought that Kendrick had released his "Illmatic" and that he would start to decline. But, on the contrary, with TPAB, Kendrick has just established itself as the best rapper of the decade. Lamar proposes a work as much political as musical. The music serving the purpose beautifully. Besides, it's reassuring to see that some commercial albums with a big success can still be well written. Kendrick's collaborators include Flying Lotus, who, along with Thundercat, signs "Wesley's Theory", an excellent piece to launch "To Pimp A Butterfly". The best tracks of the album are: "King Kunta", "These Walls", "The Blacker The Berry" and "I". But the best in my opinion is "U" which is really very original and is one of my favorite songs of all time. This album is innovative for hip-hop and for music in general. Kendrick is now one of my favorite rappers of all time and TPAB is surely the best rap album of the decade.

10/10

Best track: "U"

Jazz Rap perfection. Fantastic social commentary amongst ridiculously catchy beats and instrumentals. If you have not heard this album yet, go in blind. Definitely an album that will sit with you for a long, long time.

This album is convoluted, packed, rooted. There is so many things one can take from this album.
But when I look at Kendrick Lamar, the thing that first hits me it's G.K.M.C, the way this album, To Pimp a Butterfly is crafted It requires you to be 100% invested in listening from start to finish, as it's message is spread on all tracks, so sometimes It is a difficult listen, G.K.M.C has a message but is more "easy" to listen with tracks more hook-centered like "Bitch Don't Kill my Vibe" and "Swiming Pools", and for my personal taste i like an album that has powerful tracks, and G.K.M.C city has lot's of It, including "Sing About Me" obsviously.
Not saying To Pimp A Butterfly doesn't have powerful tracks of course, but I can't really enjoy them outside of the context of listening to the album on it's entirety. Still on the overall scheme of things this is Kendrick's best work.

Near flawless, instantly one of my favorite albums. Not that my opinion is worth much on this, but for me, it's the greatest hip-hop album ever produced

A landmark in American music. Social commentary flawlessly weaved throughout enticing melodies.

There are albums that people remember the first time they heard it, ones that will stand the test time and forever define an era of music. To Pimp a Butterfly is that album.

Kendrick made an amazing album here that should make African-Americans proud of their heritage.
