I think there were signs of it on his first two albums so I totally expected a more mainstream approach in terms of sound, which will have certainly been advised by the label.

What gets me with this is the lack of anything interesting to say. I never expected him to compromise on his content. Even Lupe kept his content on "Lasers".

my primary concern on first listen was that the record was far longer than it needed to be.
KL's still got clever lyrics, although they verged on more generic topics this time than the last outing
and all the little interludes served only to annoy me.

I wanted to listen to hip-hop not some answering phone message with a niqqa shouting and cursing about Dominoes.

That 10 minute track had me reaching for a razor blade.

So do you guys dislike this album? I don't think it's amazing, but I also don't think it's bad at all.

I really am going to have a tough time going to this for a second listen. It's in my car right now but I'm just really not enjoying it. The 11th track is okay, but I just don't find myself as enthralled as I did last year when I got Section .80. It doesn't seem to be like his songs are about much, and I hate the talk over samples at the end of each track, they just seem to drag on and on.

I think the album is slightly below average, I liked two songs on the entire thing and some of the others absolutely drive me insane but I am starting to hate it for reasons other than the album itself...

It is close to a 4.0 on RYM... I mean, this is ridiculous. People are calling it a "classic" and "AOTY". I mean, is it even better than Section.80? I don't think so. Not by a long shot. It's going to be more over hyped and overrated than MBDTF, which I don't mind all that much.

Yeah but it's also only been around for a week so I'm not surprised everyone is going to be gushing over it. Give it a few weeks and the rating will drop and will eventually take its place somewhere in the 200/300 of RYM's best of 2012.

I do like your review on RYM though.
