THIS was the first album I wasn't naive enough to be surprised by people saying it's bad. Not because I think Em has fallen off (far from it) but because I've finally realised that even in hip hop, no matter how good an album sounds to one person, another can completely hate it.
So serious question to those not enjoying it, what did you WANT out of the album? What would he have had to do to make you say the album was dope? Cos for most of my favourite artists, if they make an album I'm not happy with I can usually explain exactly why it sounds bad to me, and what I wanted out of the album, in terms of flow, beats, subject matter etc.
So seriously, if you didn't like it, what did you want?
Ok but specifically what would he have had to do for it to not be wack?
I can acknowledge that he fell off but I also think since Recovery, he got back on.
Fam you're talkin' like Em is incapable of makin' a so/so album. Better beats, better concepts, better hooks. Maybe Stan was a fluke, coz he's not made a song of such high quality since.
Word, so was "Triumph", "T.R.O.Y." and "Gin and Juice". All flukes
