This is really starting to click now. Flies by with no skips for me. Even tracks I didn't like at first (Lust and XXX) have warmed up massively.
Feel a bit like the album's lack of musicality (in comparison to TPAB) is a statement in itself. There's so much going on with that album that people can miss stuff. Here, the beats are no different than any rapper might go over - the difference is that they couldn't turn those beats into these songs.
Weird vibe, though. Sometimes feels like the most honest look at Kendrick and his interior life that we've had. Feel like he hasn't sounded so jaded and cynical before.
I hope there isn't another release on Sunday. There's so much to digest here and a new album will just turn this one into more static and noise imo.
