DAMN.

Seems fair enough this is a bang average album. Kendrick can be a master storyteller but his lyrics are so dense that it can take a while to get the story so initially it has to be the music that reals me in and having played through this album a few times over the weekend I'm just not fussed by it and what I have picked up lyrically isn't drawing me in either. 

1. Good Kid, MAAD City
2. To Pimp a Butterfly
3. Untitled/Unmastered
4. DAMN.
5. Mr Morale 
6. Section 80

Yeah I get that. Tbh every time I listen to it I switch between ‘instant classic’ and ‘eh, this is pretty good’. I think there are definite moments of brilliance on there, like real ‘this guy is on another level’, but equally a few of the songs don’t leave much of an impact once they’ve finished. To me a lot of it sounds like DAMN. but without the immediately catchy hooks.

 

Also don’t think I’ve seen it mentioned on here yet but Kodak Black being all over this thing is a shit move from Kenny that unfortunately mirrors Kanye’s inclusion of Manson on Donda quite a bit yet doesn’t seem to be getting nearly as much flack. I’ve seen people defending it as ‘him being flawed is why he’s on the album, that’s the point’ etc, but the guys a rapist and Kenny is giving him a platform just doesn’t sit right at all imo.

I’d rank them thus:

1. GK/MC
2. Untitled/Unmastered
3. DAMN
4. Mr Morale 
5. TPAB
6. Section 80

Notably, a lot of those reviews were early reactions rushed out by Friday lunchtime after the album had only been out for a few hours.  Will be interesting to see if they continue to hold up.

Most outlets definiely rush to overpraise these days as they don't want to be seen to be slagging off a future great.

I think guests like Tanna, Summer Walker and Blxst wont make the trip. Summer has a show on June 24th which really shrinks that chance. Theyll be at Rolling Loud along with Keem  moreso. So having Sampha and Beth being that theyre local has the best chance. At least it makes it unique in that aspect being that you likely wont be able to see Beth guest anywhere else.

shocking review by picthfork.  i do find myself agreeing with alot of their takes on music but this is so off. feels like a kodack black comprimised review to me. i listened to damn yesterday and stand by my view that morales is superior to damn in every way other than catchyness. and they have damn 9.2 (which i did think was inflated at the time, i had it at an 8.X on the pitchfork scale). Some of the stuff the reviewer says are just plain odd. lacks depth? I have the album at 9.3, same as TPAB. nutty review.

No way DAMN is better that Mr Morale. 

I think as others have said, it terms of immediate grabs from hooks etc. Damn. is probably superior. But pretty much everything else is better in Morale. 

Damn an 8, MM a 8.5/9

20. Alright

From checking his set lists the past couple of years (especially festivals) he's averaged 19-20 sogns. The only ones I'm not confident on is ADHD, but he needs something from Section 80, and Mother I Sober with Beth. If we can get this and add in All The Stars, I'd be very happy.

7 songs from the newest album, not including the 2 videos, 
3 from DAMN (maybe add in Element if you take out Mother I sober)
3 from TPAB
5 from Mad City
1 from Section 80.

Stick stick stick stick. I love this.

I’d be surprised if he played I though. Has he played it often?

Also I think loyalty will be in there

N95 and family ties will defo be together surely? They are the same song basically.

I playlisted my attempt. Not sure what it is but I just find as an opener the Crown piano plodding along and the outro of "I can't please everyone" into Mr. Morale fucking irresistible.

It was another one I wasn't sure of, it was either that or Wesley's Theory. He's not played i much if at all since 2016. 

Loyalty is great, its just got a lot of down time, with other people singing.

I reckon he'll do a 1hr 15m version of We Cry Together, and close with a 15 minute live sex show.

If you need a quick laugh - might brighten the mood in here.
