This is an incredible album that's not given enough credit because it's a B-sides album. In my opinion this album holds up to other Kendrick releases like TPAB and Good Kid. It doesn't tell a complete and heartfelt story like those two albums do, but it IS an incredibly fun listen, that's great in its own right. Fav tracks 3,5,6,7,and 8

From mdbaxter
A quality album of "outtakes" that is much better than most titled and mastered albums. Similar sound to TPAB with the jazz/funk influences and the Thundercat backing vocals. Strong points across most songs.

Personal favorites: 02, 05, 07

The best thing for listeners to do is to completely forget that these songs are classified as "b-sides". In that frame of mind they'll come off as not much more than respectable, but inferior outtakes of To Pimp a Butterfly.
If you think of this as a conceptual albums and set of songs in it's own merit then the music will blow you away even more. Lamar is a true musical genius.

From JulianR
This album suffers heavily from the Amnesiac effect. TPAB and and Kid A are both behemoth, critically acclaimed concept albums, building upon their previous releases. Then comes this album and Amnesiac, generally considered inferior to their predecessor. It seems like that idea that they are inferior is based heavily on the conception that, since it was constructed essentially from outtakes of the other, it must be inferior (I think The Final Cut is another album that suffers heavily from this effect). But, just like the Final Cut (In my opinion at least), and some might argue Amnesiac too, this album is better than its predecessor. Its even more boundary pushing. The instrumentation is mind blowing, and his lyrics are just as complex and brilliant as his last two releases, if not more. So listen to Untitled Unmastered, listen to The Final Cut, listen to Amnesiac, and realize that these are not B-side collections, but brilliant works from brilliant artists.

It's kind of amazing how the outtakes for To Pimp a Butterfly could become a solid, coherent album. I'd actually say that this compilation is a step up from Section.80. Kendrick is definitely a special artist, and this album made us begin to think of him as the GOAT, and DAMN. pretty much solidified it.

Highlights- Untitled 05, Untitled 06, Untitled 08

This almost immediately shot to the top of my favorite albums ever list when it came out. this was the first kendrick album i ever bought so maybe that influenced me, but DAG IT'S SO GOOD!

i got this at the same time as Bowie's posthumous 'blackstar' and i really felt a connection between those two albums. the horns/piano, creepy atmosphere, and even kendrick's delivery of the octave jump on untitled 2 - "can't you please pray for me^E" is just like bowie on "i'm sitting in the chesnut tree^E, who the fuck is gonna mess with me^E". just so cool. i think kendrick nods a lot more to eccentric artists like bowie and prince than most people notice.

Favorite songs: untitled 2, untitled 3, and untitled 6

B-sides or not. Undeniably, a brilliant look into a genius coming into his own. Nothing new here from Kendrick, but fun to compare some of these cuts with TPAB, to get a deeper insight on the concepts he continues to preach: equality, respect, love, race, God, politics, the humanities, etc.
