    This album has some strong points,, but overall pretty average. The best thing for Jay-Z right now is that he does not sound like anybody else, the bad thing is he doesn't really sound like his classic self. Sounds like he free-styled the whole album which gives him a kind of bounce-to-the-beat flow, but minimal depth. He's older now, & a lot richer, so he doesn't have many struggles or dream-like ambitions to talk about, which was what people love to listen to him talk about, because he makes you feel where he wants to be. There is none of that in this album. I know how deep he can get because I have everything dating back to Reasonable Doubt. Again, he doesn't sound like anybody else, which is refreshing, but he also doesn't really sound like much of himself. At the moment, I will classify him as the most clasic hip-hop sounding artist with minimal southern influence...real Jay-Z fans will feel me on this!

    The album has a few good tracks, but it is far from being Jay-Z best work. It seems to be a victim of the artist's own greatness. When you objectively compare all of his portfolio, it doesn't compete with Reasonable Doubt, Blueprint, or The Black Album which I consider to be his most pure/game changing works. So for all the fans of hip hop it is a definite pick up, but if you are looking for this to replace your favorite Jay-Z album you may be disappointed.

    Best Jay-Z Album to Date!

    Hands down best Jay-Z album to date. Lots of song references, brilliant production. Feels fresh and new while still maintaining traditional Jay-Z sound and style. If you're a Jay-Z fan, and you for some reason don't have this album yet, get it. If your a general Hip Hop fan, you most likely will still enjoy this highly. I've listened to this album in it's entirety about 15 times already now and still loop it in my car. Great album all around!

    Another hit album from Jay Z. I particularly like the "On the Run" track with Beyoncé. Really found the perfect balance of Hip Hop and R&B on this track. And, of course, "Holy Grail" with Justin Timberlake sets the tone, right off the top, for a good listen. There are a couple of tracks that aren't exactly my cup of tea, but still not terrible (Hence, the 4 stars rating). Overall, a good album.

    Over all Great Album to listen too. The Lyrical Content may be over some people heads, which is in my opinion why someone would say this in not a good album. If you looking for that Gutter Street Rachet'ness this is not for you.

    Maybe I am just used to the other albums that have come out. This shows Jay-Z's creative side. As a fan of Jay-Z, I should have expected this album to come one day. I love the design and thought process put into the album cover art. I am waiting to see if this will ever be revealed on a future album.

    jay-z has created something different. people may say: "well this doesn't sound like jay-z". but artists grow, and so do there tastes. this album had different sounds, different view points and lyrics. jay-z has a lot to say, and he expressed it clear through this album!

    The Best Rap Album of the Year!

    Dope album! I wouldn't say it's a classic, but it's by far the best rap album this year. I've listened to the album many time at this point and it is definitely some of his best work. Hov!
