Oct 29, 2014It’s not a verbatim copy of Kendrick’s work, but it’s every bit the stylistic counterfeit, and while it, along with the other mentions above, could be seen as imitations done in reverence had they been released on a free mixtape, their use on an album is no doubt a calculated effort to profit off of the ideas and work of another who did it first, in an attempt to capitalize on the ignorance of those listeners who may not know better.

A lot of people have already said it is the best hip-hop album since GKMC and then there have also been a lot of people who talk about him copying Kendrick. This is not true though. Logic is a really honest artist and he has stated that he is not only influenced and inspired by the legends of the old days, but also by new greats such as J. Cole & Kendrick Lamar. I find it strange how people can appreciate new school lyricists for sampling the veterans or taking inspiration from them but not when a new artists appreciates another new (relatively) artist such as Kendrick. GKMC has been labeled the best thing in hip-hop and nothing thus far has been able to top it. So where's the logic in Logic not appreciating a project as big as GKMC by taking inspiration from it? Exactly. Logic still holds his own by telling his story instead of someone else's over brilliant production, by switching up his flow and still holding it down lyrically. He's definitely not the most complex lyricist in the game but far above average still and also very easy to connect and relate to. My personal favorite rap album of the year and possibly my AOTY. Support it if you can!… Expand

It isn't a single filler (everyone loves a single filler), it is a completely different outlook compared to his mixtapes, and although it seems 'borrowed' off of GKMC I thoroughly enjoyed it. Logic possesses a lot of lyrical proficiency which he effectively employed in this album's contextual story line from "Intro" right through to "Till The End". I think the production team (6ix, NO ID, Tae Beast, among others) did a great job of ensuring the success of this album.… Expand

Sad to see him benefiting fromDude will never follow up with anything close to as good as this. Been years since the last solid release. Sad to see him benefiting from rushed and surface level released when he got gems like this. All the Logic yes-men in his circle really is doing no favors and are just encouraging weak bars and brain dead wanna be radio hits. This really ain’t a review of the album no more lmao, had to bring the score down since his new **** overshadow the good releases. I can’t enjoy them as much anymore.… Expand

This album is amazing- Lyrically Logic is strong and the production is A1. Logic's clever delivery truly allows the listener to experience his emotions.
Really impressed by this album, best rap album of 2014 by far!… Expand

Watered down and easily digestible with hyperactive flows which must mean there is something in them, right?....r..r..rright? I could give the guy a pass for his subject matter, but the songwriting and music itself are hideous. One of those guys that everyone gets excited about over some freestyles of beats the public has already accepted. Hey, he rhymed a lot of words there, maybe he could make a song of his o- wait, no, identity-less and insipid like 99% of fast-rappers.… Expand
