my favourite song from this album is:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/EUb2OvWa90M" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/EUb2OvWa90M</a>


i like DOA, but it's still ironic that a song like this comes from Jay-Z, when you look at all the music he makes: he's not a guardian :laugh:
by the way, he shouldn't have done the "lalala,heeeyheeyheey", as it's retarded.
i also kept Thank You, but i've deleted the rest of the songs.

listened to this album 3 times today.  Its nothing short of amazing.  Only track I wasnt feelin was the second Kanye track.  But dont see how people dont like this album.  Its really a great cd.

Yeah, but it was expected, Dubcc have always been anti-Jay-Z, and it got worse after The Game went from stalking to dissing..
Not to mention all the Pac, Nas, Budden, Dipset/Cam fans (or groupies) on here, they all got their issues with Jay-Z. ;D

Does anyone else feel me on Jay's flow here? Easily his worst performance on any album.

There's some tracks where its just so damn sloppy

I'm listening to the album now... so far it's pretty much what I expected so I'm not really let down, but I'll drop my thoughts on it all once I'm done bumpin' it

after one listen, I can say the album is decent but I probably won't cop it unless it grows on me majorly... great production on some tracks but I just wasn't feeling Jay-Z's flow or even lyrics at times  :-\

my favorite tracks were "What We Talkin' About", "Empire State Of Mind", "A Star Is Born", "Reminder", "So Ambitious", and some others I would include but it was mainly due to the beats and/or feature

IMO American Gangster > this album

1. What We Talkin' About - 4/5; great intro, diggin' the flow & what Jay was rappin' about.
2.Thank You - 3.5/5; alright, nothing great, but not too weak - average.
3. D.O.A. - 4.5/5; one of my favorite songs of the year, let alone the album.
4. Run This Town - 3.75/5; for a mainstream track, really feelin' it. Rihanna killed the hook & Kanye killed his verse.
5. Empire State of Mind - 5/5; personally my favorite song on the album, unreal track. my New York Anthem! 8)
6. Real As It Gets - 3/5; not terrible, but not really feelin' Jeezy or Jay's flow here.
7. On To The Next One - 2.5/5; cannot stand a Swizz Beatz beat. so repetative & annoying, just poor, Jay wasn't on top of his game here either.
8. Off That - 3.75/5; i'm diggin' the track for a mainstream song. Drake's hook is dope, the concept is dope & Jay comes correct in all verses.
9. A Star Is Born - 5/5; great tribute track to most dudes in the industry & J. Cole straight killed his verse; dude is the future!
10. Venus Vs. Mars - 2.75/5; not very high on my list. cool vibe to it, but overall pretty weak.
11. Already Home - 4.5/5; top track off the album, great feel, Jay comes correct & Cudi is dope on the hook.
12. Hate - 3/5; i expected a lot more for a Jay/Kanye collab. song, but whatever. beat was disappointing & i wasn't really feelin' the flows.
13. Reminder - 4/5; good track from start to finish, nothing spectacular, but a real strong track off the album.
14. So Ambitious - 4/5; strong track with a tight hook; Jay came correct & it was a well put together track.
15. Young Forever - 4.5/5; great sample, Jay came awesome here; great way to finish out the album.

solid album. not terrible like some people have been saying & not awesome; just solid with some real bright spots & some real "wtf's?".

overall: 3.85 (when calculated); which is good for me; now i just have to see what kind of replay value it holds for me within the next few weeks.

Best Jay album since his "retirement" imo.

1.)Great tracks
D.O.A., Empire State Of Mind, A Star Is Born, So Ambitious

1.a)Would be great but ruined by weird hooks
Run This Town, Reminder

2.) Enjoyable tracks
Off That, Venus Vs. Mars (awful hook)

3.) Alright joints
What We Talking About (boring beat and hook, Jay was great), Thank You (boring), On To The Next One (not bad but it's all over the place), Already Home (great beat and hook but awful flow), Hate (weird track lol)

4.) Biggest dissapointemnt
Forever Young (such an epic beat and chours build your expectations but Jay raps like he couldn't care less)

No tracks that made me say "this shit sucks". Jay was aiming for a more fresh, experimental and feel good vibe album and I prefer that over that snooze fest of an album called American Gangster.

Wasn't impressed after one listen but decided not to post until I listened a few more times.  Album's growing on me very quickly.

My fav's are (obviously) D.O.A. and Run This Town, also Off That with Drake is hot, Star Is Born i like (J.Cole kills it!), Venus Vs. Mars is hella nice too.  The Jeezy track and the track with A. Keys I like as well.

Overall I'm happy!

That Alphaville sample is horrible. God I hate Forever Young.

Edit: Infact, the whole beat sucks.

Wow "off That" with swizz beatz got a irritating beat but Hov absolutely kills it.
