Lupe experimented with this one. At this point i can’t say this is a failed experiment. Much like Watch the Throne, i don’t think it’s bad, it’s just not really a style of production that i typically enjoy listening to. A few song from the album will get playbacks from me, there really aren’t any horrible songs on the album. If you enjoy some electro and dubstep then you might enjoy this album. If not then it will take some getting used to. The good that came from it is i’m now starting to listen and enjoy a little dubstep.
