as much as i don't really like modern hip-hop in general, this is actually just really fucking good.

my first thought when i heard airplanes was, "oh no! hayley williams is selling out!" but then i reconsidered that that was just a stupid statement. :zip:

if there's any reason to hype an album, it's rivers cuomo

Album is great. Favourites are Airplanes Part 2, Ghost in the Machine and The Kids, but the rest of the album is also incredibly good.

This is a really good album. I find it very solid and smooth throughout. I enjoy both the pop aspect and the hip hop aspect of it. Call it 'white mans hip hop' if you want, thats what my friend called it anyway but regardless....it is a solid release and i very much do enjoy it.

Ya if this was 15 years ago...

Really digging this. No bling, no gangsta, no autotune, no gimmicks. Just hip-hop with great pop hooks.

It's okay, Wale, Cudi, and Drake are way better as far as freshman rappers go.

If this was 1994, it'd be for real

Expectations are ridiculously high for Drake.

Uh yeah just listening to this all the way through..
The Kids uses the chorus from Vampire Weekend's The Kids Don't Stand a Chance.
Thought that was cool.

That is cool. I've only heard his single beautiful girls and i honestly can't stand it, but maybe i'll give this album a shot.

There's an interesting blend of sounds on this, but I like it a lot. "Airplanes" (both versions), "Nothin' on You", "Magic", and "The Kids" have to be my favorites. Only song I can say nothing good about is "Bet I".

I can't take him seriously whatsoever, I'll always picture him in a wheelchair on Degrassi
