Can't speak on Andre as I've never dived too deep into Outkast/etc. Kendrick > DOOM though. Kendrick being able to breakthrough to the mainstream so significantly while maintaining such a high bar for the quality of content he's putting out there hasn't been matched, at least with the folks I'm familiar with. 

 

Had to look this one up, got the CD on the way

I really don't know what to think about this album, it's either greatest of the decade or greatest of all time

section 80 and gkmc were just OK for me, nothing special but definitely not bad. TPAB is great, almost made me a fan. then DAMN ruined it.

Greatest album of music? Of rap music?  What am I missing?  Except for a few songs I think it's good but I think TPAB is much better.

i kinda wish the album would've just stuck to one sound...the best tracks on the album -- "FEAR." and "DUCKWORTH." -- also stand out because they sound so different from every other track on the album, except maybe "FEEL." and of course the intro "BLOOD." .

it's kinda weird, because everything else is tailored to have this commercial, radio-ready sound but these 3-4 tracks just disrupt the flow in an unflattering way.  i'm noticing a lot of things though, particularly the motif of reversing.  it shows up on a lot of the production, almost like he's intentionally going backwards in everything from his lyrics to his sound.  shit, some of the vocals are even reversed on "FEAR." ... and then obviously the last verse on "FEAR." pretty much references every track/theme on the album at once.

this is definitely his most connected work, and it's a surprisingly simple technique that most rappers just don't use.  it's like all he has to do is say a noun like "dog", "Lucy", "yah/yeah", "Sherane", etc. and it immediately gives another link between a past song and a present one.

nice little doc i never knew of before.  i hear TPAB instrumentals throughout, is this the only outlet that got access to those glorious stems?

i'd love an instrumental version of the album at some point
