    Great way to start the new year

    Great way to redeem himself after a lackluster 'Lasers' album and decent 'F&L 2' . Lupe Fiasco needs to change his name to Lupe the Barbarian, because after listening to the track 'Mural', he completely murders the track with bar after bar of brilliance. The man is a lyrical genius and we're only one track in. This pretty much sets the stage for the rest of the album. A total of 16 tracks with 4 instrumentals that play the part of the seasons of the year. These seasons segment the albums in a certain tone. The features on the album are well placed and not forced. If I had to choose a standout track, it would be all of them. Lupe doesn't miss a beat. Definitely a must buy for someone who enjoys great music and thought provoking lyrics.

    my experience with in store pick up is always a little off for Best Buy. I'm not sure why, but I almost always have to stand in a longer line and not really be taken care of for a while. it's like in store pick up is not a priority or something. Maybe it's just the locations I have gone to, but that has been my experience. But... that's not what this review is for. it's for the product... which is AMAZING! this is the best hip hop album I've experienced in quite some time. I also picked up B4 DA$$ that same day and I've listened to it a couple times but this has been in my cd player NON STOP! And I usually download music but when it's an artist I really like. I like physical. so anywho... I give this album a raving review and Lupe has finally come back the form of FOOD AND LIQUOR and THE COOL!

    After breaking on to the scene with such great records as Food & Liquor and The Cool, momentum came to a halt with Lasers and the controversy surrounding it. And while the next album , Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album, was a good effort, that special something that made the first two albums great were missing. Enter Tetsuo & Youth. I'm glad to say that this is a great return to form for Lupe. This album has everything from bangers and poppy songs to the witty bars and heavy concepts that Lupe is known for. This is a definite must buy for Lupe Fiasco fans.

    Return to Glory

    I have every Lupe Fiasco to date and was a bit disappointed with Lasers and less disappointed with the Great American Rap Album. However, I find Tetsuo & Youth to remind me of the Lupe from Food & Liquor and The Cool but still ever evolving. Each track is heavy hitting with a few tracks approaching the 7-8 minute mark but you never feel bored if the song should have ended. Lupe returns to what fans expect of him and I definitely recommend new and continuing Lupe fans to listen.

    Some ok tracks, but disappointing

    I really LOVED Lupe's first 2 albums. Lasers was decent, but got a bit too preachy. F&L 2 had a bit of a better mix, but this one was more preachyness. After hearing the pre release tracks, I thought this was going to be a bit more like the first 2 albums, but the album doesn't match the pre release tracks. Lupe still has some of the most creative and intelligent flows, but its a bit to preachy.

    Arguably Lupe's Best work

    Was heavily anticipating this album from Lupe even though he most certainly has been the most frustrating rapper and perhaps artist of my generation. So glad he finally came through for us loyal fans with this amazing body of work (No pun intended) that can actually challenge his opus, 2007's The Cool. Guess it really was worth getting blocked on Twitter by him.

    I was expecting great things from this album. I have listened to it twice all the way through and I would call it just ok. Its not bad but none of the songs really stuck with me. His lyrics and rhyming are always tight but I didn't love any of the beats. It seemed like he was trying to add some kind of artistic flare to the album but did it unsuccessfully.

    Lupe's Masterpiece

    After much struggle with his record label Lupe finally delivered his masterpiece...and it is a true work of art. Anyone who can appreciate writing with depth will love this album. It's like a good book that you want to read multiple times to get more from it. Classic is a term too often used... This album is a masterpiece.
