I'm glad I heard the record before I read this review. I actually love this record, it's not often that I can listen to a hip-hop album all the way through without skipping a track. This album is definitely going to be on my top list.
I'm with you dude. I did the iTunes pre-order and have been listening to it all day and really enjoy it. I think this review shows to much negativity towards it imo. It's not his The Cool or Food and Liquor, but I really enjoy that it's a different side of Lupe we haven't seen. Does feel a little pushed by Atlantic on certain tracks, but Lupe got screwed over so I'm happy it came out and that I can enjoy it. It's a good album to listen to at the gym I found out today to.
