  1. If you enjoy contemporary pop whose market-tested blare offends both rockist philistines and IDM aesthetes, her second album is a worthwhile investment.

    You can see Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded as a great rap album dragged down by pandering, but you could equally see it as a triumph that one of the biggest pop records of the year leads off with a half-dozen tracks of blistering, filthy, idea-jammed hip-hop.

    Nicki's shining moments are her straight-up, hip-hop tracks. [#252, p.87]

    It's not a classic album, but its contents implicitly argue that the concept of a "classic album" has become irrelevant in 2012 anyway.

    More than it's lack of rap, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded suffers most from not fully being any one thing, as it's unable to balance multiple approaches into one package.

    Pink Friday: Roman's Revenge isn't bad because of Minaj's cross-dressing it is bad because she often tries on some very banal, characterless outfits.

    By doubling down on her cartoonish elements, she's lost all remnants of lyrical ingenuity she around the time "Monster" first leaked, let alone her various mixtapes.

    This album is completely honest & fun. I love every single track. Wow. I love how she blended hard lyrics on insane beats. Thanks to HitBoy.This album is completely honest & fun. I love every single track. Wow. I love how she blended hard lyrics on insane beats. Thanks to HitBoy. I'm completely blown away. I never thought Nicki would go this hard. She amazes me every time. I wonder how her next project will sound. You guys just hate the fact that she is boasting about her success. Besides, she's her own competition. Expand

She's trying to breakout of her little box labeled "rapping only" and reaching new heights. It should be clear that people try to become more diverse. It may sound like a lifeless, cheap album with fillers, but after hearing it again, listening to the lyrics, the songs became very catchy. Expand

Around about the first haflf of the album is dedicated to minimalistic rap beats with lyrics to both match and boot. Unfortunately the second haly falls into little more than generic pop music which plays safe if nothing else. One just wishes nicki would have the guts to embelish he r creative side much more. A 6.5 for me, however mc willl not let one gvve decimal ratings Expand

    Man. Nicki Minaj should've used her mixtape persona on this album. i don't like the way how she combines pop and hip-hop. It's alright whenMan. Nicki Minaj should've used her mixtape persona on this album. i don't like the way how she combines pop and hip-hop. It's alright when she's rapping, but mostly it's a poppy rap blur. if she keeps going like this, im not listnening to her music anymore. her next effort must be hardcore rap. But i don't mind those few pop songs though. but she can do better. Expand

    Va va voom earned this song a 1 and pound the alarm got it another bar. If those songs were any worse, it would have gotten no rating. TheVa va voom earned this song a 1 and pound the alarm got it another bar. If those songs were any worse, it would have gotten no rating. The songs are kinda disturbing quite honestly. It's almost like she's trying to make terrible music. Stupid Hoe DESTROYS THE ALBUM. I would have given it a mixed review if it wasn't for that song but Stupid Hoe is, honestly, one of the worst songs in existence. It's annoying and would be laughably bad but there's just so much to despise that you don't laugh. Expand
