    Miller's big challenge is that he follows in a long line of suburban college rappers who have thrown up whack mixtapes like they were yesterday's punch bowl, but this memorable debut steps right around that mess and suggests that the kids are not just all right, but all the way live.

    You know that breathless feeling you had when you ran from the cops after they broke up a house party? This album is that feeling in musical form.

    Miller exhausts his narrow subject matter pretty thoroughly over Blue Slide Park, but his life is so joyously carefree that it's hard to blame him for wanting to bask in it.

    The album as a whole saunters and bounces along.

    Blue Slide Park doesn't do anything to damage Mac's current status in the game, but it also doesn't do much to raise it.

    Miller sticks with a cruise-controlled slow burn for most of Blue Slide Park.

    I'm giving this a 3 purely for the solid production. Mac Miller is honestly one of the worst rappers i've heard in my life. Please name me oneI'm giving this a 3 purely for the solid production. Mac Miller is honestly one of the worst rappers i've heard in my life. Please name me one track that he has where he says anything that is slightly substantive. Its okay to make "fun" rap songs but this album is just downright terrible. The only people i can see liking this are loyal fans of his. Full Review »
