jay came delicate on almost every track...the beats were too damn synthy for me for the most part. kanye held his verses down but thats about all i can say good for the album.

fucking euro techno hop.

LOL. I must be talking to Game right now. This is dope ass music, something Game needs to make if he wants to get any sort of recognition.

Like I honestly don't know what any of you harsh reviewers are thinking. Just go bump Doggystyle.

"Illest Motherfucker Alive" is a bonus track on the hardcopy. So the three minutes is like a pause between album and bonus tracks.

No Church In The Wild came in hard, but the singing and auto-tune wasn't doing it for me.
Lift Off I don't really like, Beyonce really dominates the track.
Ni66as In Paris bangs.
Otis is okay, feeling the old sample.
Gotta Have It has an older feel to it, in a good way of course.
New Day production sounds great, real smooth track. Again not feeling the auto-tuned sample but I bet it'll grow on me.
That's My Bitch starts off raw, but then throws you off with the sample. I really like it.
Welcome To The Jungle I don't really like. Raps are okay but Fuck Swizz Beats!
Who Gon Stop Me sounds great, some experimental dubstep production. Not digging Jay's intro, though.
Murder To Excellence sounds more like a Jay track. No comment, nice shit.
Made IN America is a little too sweet for my taste, Frank Ocean can sing but if you sing about sweet baby jesus.. nah..
Why I Love you is okay, except for the chorus.

Overall the production you either love or you hate, the same goes for the auto-tuned parts.
Rest is great. This will go platinum no doubt.

Sounds like a fair assessment. But to give out that many 4's & 4.5's & use a word like "solid" doesn't make sense to me lol.

damn I swear Kanye must be enamored with French electro music. first Stronger, now Why I Love You (sampling Cassius's I Love You So). Ed Banger records must be thankful for the royalty checks they're receiving lol.

I thought the same thing as King Petey for the autotune thing. As for the album in its entirety i need more spins .I'll try to post a detailed review later. but it's nice so far. Nothing really mind-blowing but the production is very impressive although a little bit all over the place.

Overall this album sounds more of a Hip-Pop album than a Hip-Hop album. The emphasis is not put on the raps themselves (the vocals sound subdued compared to the music), the subject matter is a bit redundant and doesn't really appeal to me. That was to be expected coming from people that nowadays belong more to mundane circles than hip-hop circles but with such legends as RZA & Mike Dean behind the boards I was still expecting some more conventional shit.

Still gotta check the bonus tracks though.

Quick question : am i the only one thinking it was Charlie Wilson singing right after the first verse on That's My Bitch???

The male singer on That's My Bitch is Justin Vernon from Bon Iver who was on a few songs on MBDTF
