    Wayne, much like in his mixtape days, is finally having fun again. And when he does that, the results are captivating.

    Across the hour, Funeral sounds less like last rites for Wayne and more like a resurrection.

    He still has clear vision and awareness of his place in the hip-hop game. However, Wayne is not a great editor, and thus listening to Funeral can become exhausting about halfway through. While listeners may be fatigued, however, Wayne is far from it.
  4. This is some of the most focused, ferocious rapping that Lil Wayne has achieved in ages. Yet this still doesn’t necessarily result in a great album.

    ‘Funeral’ is a mixed bag, and feels more like 24 tracks Lil Wayne had lying around than a coherent project. It’s a shame, because there’s a very good album somewhere in the 24 tracks on offer, but it’s weighed down by a lot of filler.

    While Funeral isn't necessarily a flop, the album would have ranked higher in Lil Wayne's discography had he cut the tracklist in half and opted for quality over quantity. Overall, Funeral lacks replay value compared to the multiple "best of the year" albums that Wayne has proven capable of creating.

    Funeral is wildly uneven, a landscape of pronounced highs and lows.

    The album also gives a reflection of hip hop, whether you're looking for beats or hard-hitting bars, the flow or the message in the lines, oldThe album also gives a reflection of hip hop, whether you're looking for beats or hard-hitting bars, the flow or the message in the lines, old school or new school, the album combines those elements and it gives life. This album is for everybody Expand

    Great album filled with bangers. Great body of work. A few skips tho. Welcome to the funeral

    Outside of about 4 tracks and some production this is a solid album. Wayne’s rapping on this is sharp as it has been since No Ceilings in 2009.

    Starts off very strong in my opinion, very diverse album from the start.
    However, the vocal effects on Wayne's voice the entire way through
    Starts off very strong in my opinion, very diverse album from the start.
    However, the vocal effects on Wayne's voice the entire way through can be overwhelming and grating, and in the 24 song album he never really says anything. "Ball Hard" is practically just a list of famous people. This is why (and I may be in the minority) that I believe C5 is a better album, as songs such as Let it all work out add something meaningful to the album besides drugs and girls and bragging.

    Solid album though, some of the instrumentals take some getting used to but this is definitely an album that grows on you, after my first listen it would've been lucky to get a 4.
