Blake dropped his second album last week, just listened today for the first time.

Production throughout is stellar, I'd love to hear dude produce a hip hop album.

    This has been sat on my MP3 player for ages now, still haven't listened to it yet. Barring a couple of tracks I really couldn't stand his first album, but going by Retrograde I'm willing to give his new one a try.

    that track with RZA caught me off guard....got my head nodding as soon as the beat kicked in...wouldn't sound of place on any of the wu albums.This album is a grower,he's evolved a lot since his first album (which was pretty good if you didn't care for the hype) but hopefully he'll dabble in hip hop a bit more.

    yeah this album is starting to grow on me,he's definitely evolved as an all round artist but more so as a producer,some of the stuff on here is great.rather than meddling about with a lot of styles like he did on his first album he's just done his own thing and it really works,i think he's realized what lane he belongs in.

    'life round here' and 'digital lion' are on heavy rotation.
