I must say that I'm quite disappointed with this album, and I was expecting something much better. I usually enjoy this reflective type of music, but I found myself being bored and uninterested about the rapping (as would be shown through my reviews of each of the singles) to give it anything higher than a 2* (I was tempted to give it a 3*).<br><br>The standouts were "Hold On, We're Going Home" and "From Time". These were great enough, and had we had more of these songs, this could have been a great album.<br><br>But, being a "rapper" you have to have these songs about being a thug, making money and to do so while swearing as much as humanly possible. "Worst Behaviour" exemplified this, and it was quite difficult to listen to.<br><br>I still feel Drake has the potential to create a really good album. There were elements in some of the songs that reminded me of one of my favourite albums of all time (Kanye West's 808's and Heartbreak), but then Drake manages to spoil it with a few expletives and ruins the vibe he has going for him. If he can avoid that in the future, I think we have a few good albums ahead of him.<br><br>Otherwise, I was overwhelmingly bored by the album. Rap enthusiasts may love some of the stuff he's singing/rapping about, but it wasn't for me. I just can't help but feel that listening through the whole album was just a waste of time. Sorry.<br><br>2.5*.
