    I was just reminiscing on some memories from this album.
    IMO this is one of Jay's best pieces and one of my favorite albums ever, even most of the songs i didnt like at first grew on me...
    Not just the music but the way it was marketed and hyped fit the cd so well (at least until jay came back[​IMG])




    Onto the tracks:

    December 4th- emotional track. makes me think back to my childhood [​IMG]
    What more can I say?- lyrically brilliant. this song pumps me up like no other. [​IMG]
    Encore- another solid joint showing jays lyrical ability.
    Threat- just hard as %%!*
    PSA- ALLOW ME TO REINTRODUCE MYSELF [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Allure- smooooth joint to ride out to
    1st song- Perfect way to finish the album, Jay demonstrating his hunger once again.

    And the thing is the singles were solid but were sub par compared to the rest of the album.

    My 3rd fav. Jay album. [​IMG] I played this album non stop.

    Beat to the intro was really good, wish more was done with that.

    Some of my favorite's-

    December 4th- Great way to start off the album
    What More Can I Say- Such a good beat, liked the way he closed the song off.
    Dirt Off Your Shoulder- Always think of the Timbo vid when this comes on. [​IMG]
    Moment of Clarity- Em [​IMG][​IMG] Beat + Jay Lyrics = [​IMG]
    PSA- Perfect way to kick off the song
    Allure- 1 of my favorite beats ever [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] So smooth... "Star role in Hovito's way" [​IMG][​IMG]
    My 1st Song- Couldn't have ended the album any better.

    Would have been the perfect retirement album [​IMG] Should have ended it there, but still appreciated either way.

    Allure is my favorite Jay-Z song of all time [​IMG]

    Threat [​IMG] Jay lyrically destroyed this song
