>How is this getting ratings and reviews on the same level as TPAB? It's nowhere near it
They're both overrated shit, so it makes sense, really.
>>
Because it's Kendrick's new album and has to be praised ... duh ...
>>
>>72322075
Cause it beats tpab in quite a few categories
>>
>>72322075
its kind of like with Kanye. He's achived a status where he can shit out any old album and be critically acclaimed.

Damn is pretty good tho but I agree its nowhere as good as gkmc or tpab
>>
Because it's Kendrick. He's a genius. Stop asking questions.
>>
>>72322141
like what?
>>
>>72322075
it's actually better than TPAB
>>
>>72322141
I bet you can't even list three ways DAMN. is objectively superior to TPAB

i personally think TPAB>DAMN.>GKMC
but overall DAMN. is so much more accesible, and not as serious even with tracks like feel and fear.
>>
>>72322075
It's almost like critics aren't objective arbiters of artistic worth and merit.
>>
>>72322288
True

Nigga, only toneless ignorant plebian faggots think TPAB is hard to get into.

I guess he spent the same amount of money on positive reviews as TPAB
>>
>>72323858
there was a good track?

Why does everyone neglect section 80? That album is still my favorite

Rank all the tracks in this album. I'll start

>Element
>Humble
>XXX
>Lust
>Love

>fear
>God

>Loyalty
>Duckworth
>pride
>feel

>>72322075
Say what you want about Fantano and his reviews but his review for DAMN. was pretty spot on. A 7/10 was a completely fair score
>>
>>72325417
This album has a metascore of 99 among real critics with actual taste yet you listen to cucktano, a nerd virgin that sits in his basement all day. Nice one kiddo
>>
>>72325505
Yes actually, I prefer to know about the everyday mans opinion. Also Fantano gives awful reviews all the time, but every one of his Kendrick reviews have been on point. Fuck you
>>
Because the hype train for Kendrick has reached a fever pitch. This happens whenever someone from the top 40 has any artistic depth.

This album is just above average for any other person unhindered by bullshit fanaticism and groupthink and has a solid knowledge and grasp of Rap.
>>
>we wuz kangz: the album


Im tired of jewish influence on rap rrrreeeweeww
>>
>>72325505
if you believe DAMN is a 99 then you're a fool who probably slobbers and gives 9/10s to every hot new mainstream album released

Fantano does this every once in a while

>"Yeah guys, MBDTF was a decent 6"
>>
Anyone got a link to the official version? I'll can I find is the shitty leak.

>>72325417
This. Fantano was right on the money just like the previous releases.
>>

didn't count blood since its just an intro
>>
>>72326875
well he could've rated it a 8 which is what it deserves.
>>
>>72326827
He personally underrated MBDTF I would say but don't act like that album isn't laughably overrated in general. DAMN. is too.
>>
How about you focus on your own opinion instead of worrying so much about other peoples'
All of you.
>>
>>72327418
I'm not one of those people who thinks it's a 10. but MBDTF is NOT a 6. He's given much worse albums higher ratings. He intentionally did that to be contrarian on a hyped and well received project to garner attention. I do not think DAMN is as good as TPAB or GKMC but I do think it's as good or better than Section 80 which he gave an 8.
>>
already passed his prime
>>
>>72322254
y r white supremacists so easily triggered he mentioned trump like once wew lad

he also mentioned that he thinks minorities are suffering because they're descended from Israelites and hence swaying from religion is a worse crime.

Why u guys not talk abt that??? I thought you hated le jews
>>
>>72322075
all metacritic scores are bought, this should be common knowledge by now
>>
>>72322075
it's nowhere near as good as untitled unmastered.
>>
This GKMC cocksucking is incredible. I don't know why I'm surprised. I was here when GKMC first game out and /mu/ had a fucking bitchfit about the 9.5.

I remember TPAB and the massive bitchfit about Fantano's 10.

I remember UU release and people calling it actually his best work.

All through this, I remember people calling Section.80 his actual best work.

But still, to see people calling GKMC his best shit, kek.
>>
>>72326827

>"He basically said without further explanation that all the poor treatment of minorities in America is due to them not living righteously enough. I disagree with this on a very personal level in every way, but it didn't affect my score."
>proceeds to take everything at face value despite bending over backward to understand TPAB
>calls people conspiracy theorists on Twitter for questioning the meaning of the blind woman or listening to the album backward

He got extremely buttblasted but couldn't admit it

DAMN. Kdot
more music coming
screen cap this and my digits
>>
>>72328812
Well, if you imported the cd of DAMN it is called DAMN. Kdot, but your digits blow
>>
>>72326827
Damn was a 7 and MBDTF was a 6 if you were over 20 when it came out.
>>
>>72327984
Not gonna speculate on the Melon's motives, I have no place in making any assumptions that he would intentionally sabotage an album's rating to generate buzz. But since when was giving an album a 7 being contrarian? I agree with that score more than most of his reviews.

Just because pitchfork and some other critics are giving DAMN. inflated ratings that are on par with GKMC or TPAB doesn't mean a 7 is underrating it to be contrarian.
>>
>>72327281
I can get behind this list

>>72325363
>Pride and Duckworth that low
>Element that high
Terrible taste

Oh look it's the new lil kendrick boy the creator
>Generic monotonous beats play in the background whilst a black guy mumbles some "ironic" lyrics over it
Meanwhile the pitchfork fags cum everywhere over it.
Christ. WHEN IS THIS GONNA STOP?
WHY DOES SHIT LIKE THIS STILL GET HYPE?
>>
yeah, I don't get it either. I prefer it to TPAB because it's more my taste, but TPAB is clearly the better album.
>>
>>72322075
don't worry, it will grow on you, keep listening with open ears

Honestly this. He wouldn't dedicate a whole minute to the Israelite snippet if he wasn't, and it clearly shown that it soured his opinion of the album.
>>
>>72327281
I like this list, although I'd put Love at the bottom and Yah above Element.
>>
>>72322075
This album is so average that it makes Section 80 seem like a better album

Literally everywhere.
Take a look at the last names of the record companies that focus on pop/rap/dance
It looks like an israeli phonebook despite them being only 2% of US Society

TPAB had way too much filler
