    I actually like this more than TPAB. Obviously TPAB is more fleshed out and stuff, more of a real "album" I guess, but to be honest I only enjoy a handful of songs on it. To me, this is totally enjoyable from beginning to end. Especially Untitled 6. That song is beautiful, real summery.

    Oh and apparently 7 was produced by swizz beats' five year old kid??????

    I feel the same. TPAB blew me away on the first listen but never quite resonated the same way again on repeat spins. Untitled, however, continues to captivate me.

    Hello, y'all. THIS NEW ALBUM.

    Especially the crazy ass story in the last track. His album length narratives are quite impressive.

    He even managed to make me not hate U2!

    The moment DNA kicked in I felt like I was feeling what Death Grips fans feel.

    Feel, DNA, XXX and Fear are all next-level. I appreciated TPAB but Damn feels like it's meant for me and my sensibilities. It's remarkable.

    Also Geraldo Rivera's bizarre "how dare people plagued by systemic racism call attention to it" response to Kendrick calling him out on this is hilarious. He even says Drake is "the best rapper." Drake.

    Three Fox disses in the first three tracks. Incredible! If I remember correctly, there was an additional one later in the album. I've only listened twice and need to go back through. I think Feel was the one that I was really into the first couple of times, though.

    This album is choice. Not as mind-blowingly good as TPAB, but I don't think anything ever will be.

    I can't understand how people can lump KL in the same league as guys like Drake, Kanye, Meek Mall and even Lil' Wayne; this dude absolutely kills all of them with his output. He just gets up there and says his thing, and it's rarely anything short of captivating..

    It's at the end of XXX and is a part of one of the best verses of the entire album (and that's saying something considering Kendrick is basically a top-shelf verse-writing machine at this point).

    The themes and general construction of this record makes it what it is for me. It's tightly-wound around the central concept and yet manages to explore so much around it without ever feeling like it veers completely off-track and stays incredible through to the very end (and what a fucking end it is).

    I think this thing is safely going to be in a ton of top 10 lists by the end of the year and it's still only April. Kendrick's pretty much got a guaranteed and permanent place in hip-hop history at this point, and Damn just cements it as totally deserving and valid. I am so thrilled to see someone with a career this high-profile remain this consistent and authentic.

    That whole Coachella performance was basically perfect. The dancers & visuals were top notch, and clearly showed a level of effort you don''t see from other rappers except maybe Kanye. Head & shoulders above all other rappers right now. That mumbling clown Future should have been embarrassed to walk onto the same stage as someone who is literally changing history in the genre as we speak.

    I get that as a fan of his these must be great times, but come on... let's stop with the OMG this is a classic!!! talk when the record isn't even out for a full week. To be fair Kendrick's receiving alot of (media) attention and hype right now that a lot of other equally good or interesting rappers don't. And that certainly adds to that game changing impressions when in reality it doesn't change a bit about the music itself.
    That's not to say his music isn't good tho.

    New to the KL bandwagon, but I downloaded 'DAMN.' today and am really enjoying it so far. Have already been through it a few times today. Surprising and engaging album.

    "DNA" fucking rules and the U2 collab is surprisingly (or unsurprisingly?) awesome. Not sure if I like the album as a whole as much as GKMC, TPaB and Untitled, but it may grow on me yet.

    I enjoyed Damn. more than To Pimp a Butterfly, but I'm not sure if I like it more than GKMC. Element, Feel, and Lust are my favorite tracks.

    Listened to it this way earlier today, and I have to say, I think it really might have been a better album backwards. Starts with the birth of his career, and ends with his death and media scrutiny. It's pretty damn cool.

    This needs a bump.

    The Black Panther soundtrack isn't necessarily his best work, but there are some fucking amazing songs on that album. I was shocked he was on almost every track.

    I was surprised on how well this album flows. I didn't find myself wanting to skip any tracks on two play through's to be honest and the first half is pretty stellar.

    And he's headlining my station's big annual show Summer Jam at Metlife Stadium. As such I'll be attending for the first time in a number of years as a fan, not a worker.
