TLDR: Flawless production. Weakest Wyoming album. Kanye steals the show with his production and (surprisingly) his singing. Not bad from Nas but his bars would've been a 7/10 on lesser production.

Highlights: Cops Shot the Kid (Best Production), Adam & Eve (Best Bars, 2nd best production)

I like a lot of Nas' songs but I've never been a fan of Nas. Have had a respect for his abilities as a rapper, not really as a musician or personality. Very glad he brought Kanye in to fix his inability ... read more

Best Track: Speaking Terms
Worst Track: Pristine

Aggressively overrated, it all just sounds like one long song. I've given it a half star bonus for its sincerity.

But I didn't really care for Soccer Mommy either. Don't understand why music publications are trying to shove lazy trap male albums, lazy indie female albums and lazy sexually explicit LGBT albums down our throat. Take 2-3 out of 10 off the Pitchfork score for either of these sub-genres to get the real score.

Best Track: Where Did I Go?, Wandering Romance, Tomorrow

Throwback R&B vibes. Could be on any generic coffee house playlist. Boring & shallow lyricism. Weak hooks & melodies. Mostly forgettable instrumentals & production.

Nice voice I guess. Good mixing and audio engineering. Do not understand the hype. She's not an FKA Twigs. Maybe a less interesting Connie Constance.

It's not even one of those "you ain't gotta like it cause the hood gone love it" situations. She ... read more

Meh. Not even that danceable.

Musical equivalent of: hi every1 im new!!!!!!! holds up spork my name is katy but u can call me t3h PeNgU1N oF d00m!!!!!!!!

Quirky, not clever. Courtney Barnett school of long titles to confuse bad music reviewers trying to be alt-trendsetters into giving big scores.

AOTY. Outstanding project in every way. This album's just good for your soul. This is what music should be.

* Best Kanye project since MBDTF. Best Cudi project ever (I actually love MOTM). Best album since TPAB.
* 4th Dimension has to be the song of the year.

Track 1 (Feel the Love): Pusha T has the opening verse the and takes a victory lap. beautiful, haunting hook by Cudi. Has been field-tested on my gym playlist, Ye's raw, animalistic adlib gun sounds are guaranteed to make you 10% ... read more
