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.

A great album. Maybe a little overrated.

First of all, this is an all-time great album. Like the last commenter said, in 20 years it will be looked at like Dark Side or OK Computer.

Additionally, The Suburbs is an alright album, but I honestly think the fact that it's #1 in the 2010s hurts this site's credibility. Arcade Fire is not at the cutting edge of music this decade unless you're just trying to whitewash history. RYM has The Suburbs at #20, behind a lot of important hip-hop acts (and better alternative ones), and that seems fair. Let's at least get TPAB ahead of it on BEA.

In 20 years, this album will be in the same conversation as The Dark Side of the Moon, Sgt Pepper's, or OK Computer

Rap normally doesn't do anything for me. This is a whole different animal though. Amazing production and sound engineering. Definitely one of my favorite albums to listen to. The highs of the album are undeniable.
