The Good: some of Jay's best, most underrated tracks are on this album - Thank You and Already Home. Empire State Of Mind is an all-time hit, with Run This Town following shortly behind. D.O.A., despite having a stance that aged like milk, is also a pretty good track.

The Bad + The Ugly: the rest of the album holy shit. Trust me, 77/100 is the nicest this record should ever be rated.

so good to know that something about you guys are y’all
When I lived in California this album was 50% I was listening to. I'm attached to it. Some great tracks and a pop feeling surround the record.

A decent close to the trilogy.
