    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.

"Mahogany", "Mama Mia", and "Bing James" in particular demonstrate Wayne's ability to craft distinct and engrossing flows with impressive rhymes. While the entire album lacks the quality of the standout tracks, Funeral remains a strong album. Expand

    I listened to the Carter 3 on purpose before listening to this. It’s on par. People are spoiled. This is better than any young artist outI listened to the Carter 3 on purpose before listening to this. It’s on par. People are spoiled. This is better than any young artist out right now! Better than Eminem latest effort also, and that’s also good. Expand

    Lil Wayne isn't showing any reason to continue on. Funeral sounds like a whisper in his grave.
