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
I thank Kendrick for getting white people into rap that isn’t Eminem. His music is very enjoyable: his flow never disappoints; the production is always above average; his storytelling is intriguing. And that’s beautiful and all, but one fact keeps lurking in the shadows:
Kendrick Lamar has never done something new.
The drunk-ass flow of ‘u’: let me introduce you to Ol’ Dirty Bastard. Flirting with jazz: ever heard of a A Tribe Called Quest? Flows that slow down and accelerate, and raps that criticize ‘gangsta’ culture: Outkast would like a talk with you. He carefully glues these ideas together to make a beautiful album - undeniably - but I reserve my 10/10s for albums that direct music culture in a new path. It easily fools the critics to call it a masterpiece, and people who don’t know shit about rap (people on this site, proof: look at the comments) follow the critcs like sheep.
Okay, the lyrics then. As poetry this is probably great art, but if you want my opinion on its content: All I hear is excuses for the American, neo-liberal dream that has clearly turned into a nightmare. Maybe using your misfortune in your own benefit works for the hood-Picassos, but the introverted hood-Einstein’s talent will get wasted for sure. So I suggest to stop trying to pimp caterpillars, and start listening to 2pac: eat the rich.
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.
Wesley's Theory / King Kunta / The Blacker The Berry
For Free? / Institutionalized / These Walls / Alright / For Sale? / Hood Politics / How Much A Dollar Cost? / Complexion / You Ain't Gotta Lie / i / Mortal Man
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
Overrrated album, 9/10 or perfect ... i think not, but it have an incredible and beautiful musical production
The great American hip-hop album. A cultural milestone for the country, genre, and music itself. Flawless. Beautiful. Groudbreaking.
haha ok so last time I commented it got downvoted 9 points, so how about this- its not underated on this site, I just like it a whole lot
This album is the best I have ever listened to. I am a huge fan of Kendrick and always will be if he keeps putting out records like this.
