just posted my review too. i thought 'words i never said' and 'all black' as concepts - were great songs. good messages and bold words. he's been pretty good at that in his career.

my most hated songs were "i don't wanna care," "break the chain" and "state run radio."

the rest is a-ok with me. i'm a fan of lupe, i'm a fan of this record, even though it could've been way better. the cool and F+L are classics to me, though.

what does everyone consider bad songs? i myself only count 3. 9/12 good to great songs isn't very disappointing to me, especially considering all the bullshit label drama he had with it. dude's still a monster.

Score's too high. I miss the days when Lupe was actually good. Like 2006.

the cool > food and liquor. fuck what ya heard.

a few of the hooks are still buggin me (state run radio being the most annoying), but they're not as bad as i first thought. all the rapping is on point. lupe's still a beast. this record is growing on me big time with each listen.

yeah, not a fan of that track either. 4+10 also get a nod for worst track.

i feel bad for lupe. a lot of people are gonna mistake his new direction for genre-flipping, when they fail to realize how much of the record he didn't want to put out/wanted nothing to do with. oh well. live and learn.

on to F+L II.

It's definitely unfortunate. Hopefully he isn't caged creatively on his next two releases.
hopefully he keeps giving the label bad publicity so they'll just drop him. but at the same time, he says lasers is half done and he has "creative control":
