timbo is garbage on this album, anyone saying those tracks are nice are lying to themselves

So I really don't like that track? Am I lying to myself?

+1

I like Off That & Venus vs. Mars. Thats my opinion

I can respect if someone else doesnt like it but dont try and tell people that they're wrong just cause they have different tastes than you. Incredibly immature. I hate these elitest's who think there taste is the only right one. Music is subjective another persons trash is someone elses treasure

For me personally this is so damn lacklustre and boring, a handful of songs I will be playing along but that's it.

Blueprint 3 is so damn average

I am a big Jay-Z fan but unlike some on here I thought American Gangster was fairly lacklustre and so I was really hoping this would be a good album. However after the first listen, I wasn't really feeling much and read the responses saying people would hail this album after a week, but here is the thing, there are five pretty good songs on here Empire State Of Mind, DOA, Young Forever, Run This Town, A Star Is Born.

Songs like Ambitous, Reminder, Hate are so damn underwhelming, in fact the majority of the album in my opinion is just damn boring.

What's the problem with "So ambitious", it's such a banger.  8)

Agreed.But the thing is even the so clalled good songs you listed dont hold a candle to jay zs best songs.Empire state of mind is being extremely overrated

I listened to the album a little more this week and more of it has grown on me... I dig almost all of it now basically except for "Thank You", "Venus VS Mars", "Hate"... a few other tracks I could fuck with for certain things

OB4CL2 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Blueprint3

OB4CL = album of the year (so far)  8)

I think overall OB4CL2 is a better album. Better sequencing and it flows front to back just like the 1st one. Blueprint3 is pretty good with standout tracks but as an album, Rae's effort was better. IMO

Blueprint 3 is dope.

I don't see why you compare the two.  Raekwon just rehashed his greatest solo effort (both of which are dope) while Jay-Z, arguably, continues to reinvent himself.  If Jay pulled a Raekown and remade Reasonable Doubt people would criticize him. 

In addition  to this Rae's effort was a story telling piece while Jay's didn't attempt that (American Gangster did).

I enjoy both releases just think the comparisons are weak.
Cool breeze; I'm hopping out of new Beams
My outfit ran me a few G's but none of that will matter if you leave
I used to be an Adam with two Eves and shawtys automatically do me
Excuse me, all that happened before you doesn't matter
I'm a vision of the future climbing the success ladder
Recline, in the mean time, twenty three shine, diamond bling blind as I rewind

Let me add my to cents:
I skimmed through this piece of shit once and then trashed it in my computer's recycle bin.

Lol, i'll keep those 5 songs mentioned and ditch the rest. This is going to fade from memory so quickly (for me anyway)

I think its more the fact that they came out around the same time, and they are both popular artists from New York

Even so thats what people do nowadays is compare, no1 can really just enjoy an album for what it is

I can't even front, many tracks have grown so much more on me after 2 listens today

solid 4/5 tracks for me as of now: "What We Talkin' About", "Empire State of Mind", "Real As It Gets", "On To The Next One", "A Star Is Born", "Already Home", "Reminder", "So Ambitious", "Young Forever"

I still don't fuck with "Hate", "Venus VS Mars" and "Thank You" have dope beats but Jay didn't bring his A game, and the singles are straight but overplayed now, but that's because they were singles  8)

It sounds like Kingdom Come Part 2, American Gangster was a lot better than this and even that to me was lacking. I just feel like he is a pale shadow of his former self and ever since The Black Album it's been downhill.

the best part of this album is the hook by Alicia Keys.
