Shit, I just realised Money Trees is built on a sample from my favourite Beach House song.

My favourite tracks are Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe, Backseat Freestyle, Money Trees, m.A.A.d city, Swimming Pools, Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst and Compton.

I wish he'd use his fast rap more often though. It's very impressive.

Rigamortis still my fav Kendrick song.

Gaga sings over the chorus of Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe https://t.co/8IgrpZ6Z

After initially feeling cold towards this album, I love it now. Excellent production, great sequencing, great rhymes, palpable emotion...it's got everything. I DON'T care for Kendrick's high pitched delivery and probably never will, but I really feel him anyway. It's received some comparisons to Illmatic, and while that doesn't quite work because Nas brought himself up from nothing with that record, whereas Kendrick already had a cult in place (which is why this album is necessary; it explains where he came from and why he believes what he does), both Illmatic and GKMC exhibit a great deal of melancholy borne of hardship. It's a beautiful thing to hear, and very genuine.

I think in this day and age it's almost as impressive as Illmatic and it's stature will probably grow over time. It's nowhere near as good though

My favs are defs Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe, Money Trees (dat sample ), m.A.A.d city, Swimming Pools and Compton.

This has really, really grown on me. Easily one of the best albums of the year, I like pretty much every song.

Definitely 2012's biggest grower. I don't know what kind of brain-washing subliminal shit Kendrick stuck in there, but I can't stop playing this album.

Hahaha I never noticed the album comes full circle at the end of Compton:

"Momma, got to use the van real quick, be back in 15 minutes!"

Changed my mind: Sing About Me is the best track, though the second half of M.A.A.D. City has my favorite beat. That's one is on some NWA shit right there.

That's the one with three parts, one of them being pure, unadulterated g-funk, yeah?

Yes. I absolutely hate his delivery on that song (is he trying to be a squeaky voiced teen or something?) but the beat in the G-funk section is out of control and the storytelling is totally intense and on point.

The discussion is old but I think the lyrics are mostly brilliant. Some great stories.

My favorites are Peer Pressure, m.A.A.d. City, Swimming Pools and Sing About Me.

This really didn't live up to the hype for me, at all.

As with El Mel's original impressions, the voice really bugs me on a number of tracks. And I don't find the production as eye-opening as on that of MBDTF. A decent listen overall but nothing too special to me.

I don't think Channel Orange is the Best Album EVAR, or of the year, but it's a much worthier consensus #1 IMO.

Will give this another shot and see if it grows on me as we'll.

I don't know anyone who loves this album that didn't give it a chance to grow on them, for what it's worth. It reveals itself more with each additional listen.

Yeah, I feel like I've been a good example of that. Hell, basically anyone still posting in this thread would be. If you give it the time of day, you will be rewarded for it, simple as that.

I liked Channel Orange right off the bat but have cooled towards it lately. It doesn't tell me anything now that I didn't hear on the third or fourth listen. Still really damn good though.
