    [The album] feels so different from his past catalog-in a generic, slightly unexciting way-that it's hard to celebrate as a listener. There are keen verses here, and the production generally deserves more than praise, but as a total package the most exciting pieces have nothing to do with the artist credited on the cover art.

    It works just fine and follows the blueprint of most major label projects today. The thing is that, in doing so, Curren$y loses some of the magic that makes him a true original.

    With The Stoned Immaculate, Curren$y has successfully touched down in the land of commercial weed rap with a solid set of downtempo tunes that have everything they need to be successful: rich soundscapes, witty brags, hummable hooks. It just needs a stronger presence from the Jet-Life juggernaut himself.

    A lazy and undercooked album.

Undoubtedly a large variety of arrangement or a bit "exaggerated" samples - such as an oriental-psychedelic "Armoire" - cause that the album seems to be a little clumsy, but overall is more than an hourly position that's worth its price.

Buy both albums because effort is exhibited here unlike anywhere else this summer, until Kendrick Lamar drops his debut. 2012 will be known for rap's newest talent finally taking the forefront to bring the genre to new heights.
