CRITIC REVIEWS

Pitchfork

They push each other and have fun doing it, and the result is a stadium-sized event-rap spectacle that still sounds like two insanely talented guys' idiosyncratic vision.

PopMatters

Watch the Throne succeeds in both and in giving us both sides of both artists—the braggadocio and the social consciousness—in nearly equal measure.

Drowned in Sound

To be disappointed with Watch the Throne is to be disappointed with the rap game in 2011.

Beats Per Minute

For all its shortcomings, Watch the Throne is still damn good.

Stadium rap's peak was short lived, but incalculable in its heights.

Well. Alright. Kind of calculable. But this is a damn good album, all the same.

The album's best track? OTIS album's best track is 'Otis', the rest is pretty average for the most part imo...

easily my favorite collaboration album. the raps were strong, the beats were fast, and the production was superb. i thought that Jay Z outperformed Ye on this LP but they were both very fierce
fav tracks: who gon stop me, no church in the wild, niggas in paris
least fav tracks: that's my bitch

Whoever tagged Kanye West as 'Uncle Tom' I want you to know that you're an actual piece of shit and I wish endless pain, suffering and malevolence upon you.

That's not okay at all
