I've never heard one of his albums, should I start with this or his debut?
I'd start with his mixtape,So Far Gone.

Really starting to like this, especially "Hold On" and "From Time." Solid review Jake, though you're considerably kinder about the Jay Z cake rap than I would be.

Hold On We're Going Home might be the best pop song of the year.

Album overall is pretty solid, though it doesn't touch Take Care in my opinion.

This whole album is really solid from front to back. I haven't listened to Take Care since the leak of this album a couple weeks ago.

Your best review yet. This album is incredible. Still can't decide between this and Monáe for AOTY so far, both are so perfect.

i reviewed it. really bad album and was almost universally panned.

a score of 65 is far from being "panned", just saying

Most of the reviews fall under "mixed" rather than positive.

good review as usual Jake. I've been really enjoying this album, which I think says something considering I've never really liked Drake in the past. can't get enough of "The Language" and "Too Much."

well sure, and i'm not trying to argue that it's a great album, but "panned" would seem to imply that most of the reviews would be fairly negative.

What was your score for it..I'm trying to remember...a 53%? That would be "panned" in an absolutepunk sense, since scores that low can be hard to come by, but across other formats a 60~ really ain't too bad of a score

It's slowly growing on me more, but thus far I still like Take Care a lot more at the moment.

And yet the Jay-Z verse may be the worst part about this record
