I was gonna make this thread.

Never liked this album from the jump and I'm a Nasir stan.

A lot of people are rating LIG but to me it's probably his worst or second worst album.

I didn't think it was that bad.

I agree and im glad this thread was made. I felt like i was tripping because EVERYBODY talk about how much they love it but aside from a few songs (especially daughters) i could do without it.

Loved this album... The different sounds he put together for it really made it a great project. You got the 90's feel with tracks like Loco-Motive & Reach out, you got the jazz influenced tracks like Stay & Cherry Wine, his story telling on A Queens Story & The World is an Addiction, & then you have Trust which sounds like its striaght off I Am...

Plus its such a personal album (especially with Daughters & Bye Baby) so everything he spills out into these tracks was appreciated.

definitely more of a listeners album....nowhere near the apex of his catalogue but still a decent album.

I thought it was a great album front to back.

Loco-Motive, Queens Story, Accident Murderers, Daughters, Reach Out, You Wouldn't Understand, The Don, Cherry Wine, Bye Baby just on the standard edition.

Nasty, Where's the Love, and Trust go hard too.

This. Definite headphones album. I didn't feel like any of the songs (production wise) had the punch of a Hustlers, The Flyest, Poppa Was A Playa, or other songs like that, but it was pretty solid throughout. A good comeback type album.

Good album just didn't have to replay value

post #16 of 47
Album is still played. Lyrically, it's refreshing to listen to. He actually has something to say unlike most rappers and that's why NaS is always relevant. Production is what makes this album stand out compared to the rest of his albums.


Deluxe tracks were weak and I wish Trust would have made the album because that song was sick.gifsmokin.gif

I liked this album a lot but I must admit I haven't spun it much since release. That might be on me though.

Exactly this. He's shown that the lyrics are still there from time to time and he can still tell a story but it just doesn't have Nas hit his apex consistently.

It's the album that a 39 year old rap legend would make. It's a solid album to me, I wonder what some of you guys were expecting from it.

if you ain't feeling this song, than your probably just a hater

Track suffers from "over-production" and the verses were all over the place IMO.

All of this and Stay is one of the best songs Nas has made in years. The Lyrics and the production was on point on this album.

I love this album. Not better than Illmatic, Lost Tapes, Distant Relatives, and Stillmatic or the intended I Am.. album but the rest is a toss up. So I can see it fitting given the argument.
post #26 of 47
Another thing I like about this album, I can hear songs that would fit on all of his albums. Some songs sound like a track from Illmatic, others sound like it's from God's Son. I think that's dope that you hear a little bit of everything.

you crazy! joint is a damn near classic minus the swizzy track...IMO

HUUUUUUUGE nas fan and i am really bored with the album. I think this is one of his weaker albums, with that said its still pretty good


I think Untitled is INCREDIBLY underrated though

Can we be honest here how many Nas albums have great replay value? I am a big Nas fan and enjoyed the album but I don't go back and listen to it that much. It's good the replay just isn't there in my opinon.

Illmatic
Stillmatic
Distant Relatives
Life Is Good
The Lost Tapes

Depending on what version you have I Am. The rest are toss ups and/or personal taste except for Nastradamus which was basura.

If NaS isn't one of your fav rappers of course one would say his albums don't have great replay value despite the fact that they do. It's all subjective, I don't know why you'd ask that question like many would agree if they're actually fans of his music.
