Nov 15, 2011fantastic and original album from drake.he has created his own style of music which is brilliant. The album is very versatile too, you see drake go deep and learn about his past and problems in 'look what you've done' as well as relatable stories such as 'marvins room'. The album will appeal to both sexes, men can relate to his stories, feelings and past experiences with women.best album of 2011 and the best album i have heard since my beautiful dark twisted fantasy.well done drake, take care :)… Expand
Nov 19, 2011Take Care is a great album. Drake is extraordinary. I really admire his uniqueness and the way he stands out from other rappers. It's great to see something different in the hip hop world for a change. I like how he has his own unique style and does his own thing instead of just jumping on the bandwagon of rappers that just brag about their money, cars, clothes, jewelry, and the groupies that grovel before them; or sing about selling drugs or being violent; in all their songs.… Expand
Nov 15, 2011This album will be a classic, Drake created his own style of rap/hiphop. On his first album, the influence of 'Cash Money' producers was clear in some songs (Miss Me, Fancy). Even though that was a good album, it wasn't a great one. This album on the other hand, is great. The influence of James Blake is very clear in this album, leading to some revolutionary songs with revolutionary beats (to give an example, Crew Love). The Jamie xx produced Take Care has a beautiful build-up, and reminds me of "Weak become heroes" by The Streets (aka Mike Skinner). Instead of chosing for industry-leading guest stars, he has chosen guest artists whose voice/rap skills fit the song perfectly (except for Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj, but they need to be on it for obvious reasons). Just like he gives Rihanna a surprising vocal role in Take Care; not the powerful Rihanna you'd expect, but an almost timid Rihanna. It's very obvious that he was left with creative control this time. I'm willing to bet he's going to receive a grammy for this one.
"Take Care", "Marvin's Room", "Crew Love", "Lord Knows" are instant classics.… Expand
Jun 21, 2013This album will be a classic for sure. Drake named this album ''Take Care'' because he felt as if he rushed through his debut album ''Thank Me Later'' (which was also his previous album). Drake really made this album worth listening. The production of the beats are AMAZING, producers like T-Minus, Boi-1da, and Noah ''40'' Shebib who helped with the album A LOT. Without ''40'' the production would have not been as good. The album also has some other talented producers that helped out. Drake has also improved a lot lyrically. The album is not just hip-hop, he has some talented singers like The Weeknd and Rihanna. Drake also sings, proving his true R&B Talent. Drake is an amazing singer and rapper. The collaborations are amazing. I really felt as if I got to feel the emotions in all of the songs, the album has really different emotions in every song, especially songs like: ''Look What You've Done'', ''Take Care'', ''Over My Dead Body and ''Marvins Room''. Take Care has really changed hip-hop, and shown that it isn't the end of hip-hop. The album was named album of the year by the ''Los Angeles Times'' and ''The New York Times''. Take Care won a Grammy Award for the Best Rap Album at the 55th Grammy Awards.… Expand
