A decent close to the trilogy.

It's got Empire State of Mind on it, it's gotta be a classic!

(an hour later)

Well, it's not another Reasonable Doubt or Black Album, but it's a good Jay-Z record. It's better than that Gucci Mane record that dropped the same year.

Jay Z always tries to make his album a big event, so it's ironic that the handful of good songs on The Blueprint 3 are low-key, spare "Empire State of Mind". "Venus vs. Mars" and "Off That" both showcase Jay riding Timbaland beats without breaking a sweat. However, songs like "A Star is Born" and "Reminder" feature some of the worst backing vocals I've ever heard. Production-wise, these songs are as night and day as you'll find on a Jay Z album.
