is that still the cover? i'm seeing some other ones that aren't as good, some featuring actual scorpions. i think it's a good cover and v on brand for mr. graham. and i'm glad this has "Nice for What" on it, that is without a doubt the song of the summer, i've heard it out in the wild blasting from cars, neighbors houses, clubs more than anything else, it's not even close. such a great song.

Psyched for the Green Day cover

Turns out "Finesse" is literally just the Bruno Mars song.

MarkoP, Thursday, 28 June 2018 19:12 (two months ago) Permalink

"Final Fantasy" goon tie tribute / diss track?

Missing - "Diplomatic Immunity" - b-side of "God's Plan" and my fave of his recent songs.

but Nice For What is so good

flappy bird, Friday, 29 June 2018 01:56 (two months ago) Permalink

I liked More Life a lot more than Views. there's gotta be at least like 3-4 good songs if the album is 25 songs long

this is prime New Jersey material

I've made it to Nice for What and yeah it completely towers everything else before it. Summer Games is pretty interesting though

im too tired & stoned to sit thru 16 songs or whatever to get to nice for what

89 minutes, congratulations Drake !

Yeah, dunno tend to agree with turrican that albums should be shorter, not longer...this is bloatware

stoker (Ross), Friday, 29 June 2018 08:34 (two months ago) Permalink

Yeah Kanye's trend of 9 tracks albums is perfectly fine by me (except when they all suck).

"Ratchet Happy Birthday" will park itself in the culture, in part because it's Drake and also it sounds different from any other birthday jam.

The MJ feat is nice.

AlXTC from Paris, Friday, 29 June 2018 15:48 (two months ago) Permalink

I like the necromantic MJ collab but I was kind of hoping those studio photos with Paul Anka were for something more interesting than him scrubbing up an old session outtake he did with a more famous person

I’ve only listened to the whole thing once but so far I feel like the last third of the album might be the strongest.

AlXTC from Paris, Friday, 29 June 2018 18:35 (two months ago) Permalink

^ same. I got way too excited when that Maxwell sample came on

josh az (2011nostalgia), Friday, 29 June 2018 18:41 (two months ago) Permalink

"Summer Games" is fantastic

flappy bird, Friday, 29 June 2018 18:43 (two months ago) Permalink

the only one i've heard so far is one that got played on the radio on my way 2 work, he was singing aimlessly and the phrase "changing from a boy to man" or something otherwise cringe-inducing was deployed. didn't enjoy

dyl, Saturday, 30 June 2018 01:51 (two months ago) Permalink

« 8 out of 10 » is also pretty cool.
I’m starting to enjoy this album!

AlXTC from Paris, Saturday, 30 June 2018 12:01 (two months ago) Permalink

wasn't Views the New Jersey?

piscesx, Saturday, 30 June 2018 12:25 (two months ago) Permalink

I think for some, « Take Care » was his « New Jersey » !
« Sandra’s Rose » is also nice.
I already like this more than « More Life ».

AlXTC from Paris, Saturday, 30 June 2018 13:03 (two months ago) Permalink

The MJ song is nice. As someone not from the Canada/US I’ve never quite understood all the Drake love/hate. The rap tracks never make it over here but his r&b dancehall things like “one dance”, “hold on we’re going home” and “passionfruit” were pretty well received and I think they felt refreshing for mainstream radio.

summer games is a great Sum 41 song

Spotify really wants me to listen to this album. How much did he ñay? He is in every single one of today’s recommended playlists. He is even in the cover of a fucking “bachata lovers” playlist. He doesn’t even have any bachata songs (and there’s no Drake songs in there, no idea why his stupid face has hijacked that one too) wtf:

Oh he makes a guest appearance on some Romeo Santos song in there, still it’s pretty ridiculous.

“8 Out of 10”: passive-aggressive diss track.

Too lazy and not interested enough to check if this number is true but it’s hilarious if true:

Dude drake is too rich to be saying he can’t take a joke. Can take those dollars tho and infinite coverage on Spotify. Fraud

Really good this, better than Views which i liked some of just fine but this is more of a deliberate step up; arrangement-wise, the samples..
In My Feelings is clearly fantastic.

piscesx, Monday, 9 July 2018 18:01 (two months ago) Permalink

Definitely better than Views, certainly earns its double album status though I haven't listened to it enough to say whether or not it's his best.

flappy bird, Monday, 9 July 2018 18:05 (two months ago) Permalink

no fucking way is it his best!

The Desus & Mero Chain (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 9 July 2018 18:12 (two months ago) Permalink

i listened to side b again today and it sounded better to me than when it first dropped. still think this record is a big strategic misstep for him... on more life he basically apologized for the acidity of views but then he came back w/ this which is basically a double down

the rap parts of this album just seem to be made strictly to titillate gossip, which i find kinda tiresome... it's like a westworld or latter day game of thrones episode that seems to exist only to generate plot and resultant recap blog posts. there's still moments of clarity here and there where i feel like you can connect w/ him/the record but it's pretty alienating in a lot of places to me, moreso than any of his other records i think

J0rdan S., Monday, 9 July 2018 18:17 (two months ago) Permalink

xp phaps a challop but i could never get into him before 2015 (partly IYRTITL but mostly Hotline Bling).

flappy bird, Monday, 9 July 2018 18:17 (two months ago) Permalink

the idea that this album is anything close to his best is... um

my drake top 4: if you’re reading, more life, take care, nothing was the same. not sure the order as i have t listened to the last 2 in years

flopson, Monday, 9 July 2018 18:53 (two months ago) Permalink

Wish reviews of this had less to do with the Drake persona, and more about his shitty, droning flow + bland beats that drag/don’t pop, like they always have, only with a few extra soul samples thrown in. Hoping I go from being a hater to ahead of the curve on this in the future

big into dont matter to me

this album is good but a bit of a snore, took 4 weeks to even get through it

the 2nd half picks up the momentum a bit though which is smart on his part

fucking hate that interlude though where a voice says you mad!

eris (Ross), Friday, 3 August 2018 15:33 (one month ago) Permalink

Eheh yeah I love this album and « 8 out of 10 » is one of my favourite tracks on it but that « you mad » part makes me want to kill!
