    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.

    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.

    Whether or not listeners make it through all 24 tracks on Funeral, it’s easy to see what Wayne is definitely in his own world. His rhyming remains unlike anyone else in the entire genre and despite this album not being his strongest, you don’t have to go far to find a Wayne quotable that inherently makes one admire his seasoned lyrical dexterity.

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

    In dire need of a good editor above all else, the consistently high energy level and strong flows on display rightfully deserve commendation,In dire need of a good editor above all else, the consistently high energy level and strong flows on display rightfully deserve commendation, but a failure to justify the mammoth 25-track length of "Funeral" by the end leads to tedium setting in after only about 10.

    I see why the album is called Funeral. Wayne might be done making exciting full bodies of work. The Carter 5 is the closest we’ve seen to peakI see why the album is called Funeral. Wayne might be done making exciting full bodies of work. The Carter 5 is the closest we’ve seen to peak Wayne since 4 and I sadly don’t think he’s coming back. The start of this album is good. You can argue that it’s great and I’d be fine with that. It gets bad pretty quick. It also doesn’t help that it’s 24 songs long. Are we not better than this yet? I’m looking at you Chris Brown, Drake, Rae Sremmurd, etc. Someone needs to hide autotune from Wayne. What happened to How to Love Wayne where he doesn’t sound like he’s drowning in Autotune? Who knows Expand
