Nobody's Smiling

Some folks don't have much good to say about Jay-Z's comeback album. I've only given it the once over and need to give it a couple more listens before calling it a flop (which at first listen, it is).

What I don't like:

- the whispering bullshit he does throughout some tracks.

- the Neptunes produced "Anything". Bad, bad idea. Conceptually,
stylistically, lyrically, sonically... Just bad all around.

-one too many half assed Dr. Dre tracks (save "Lost One").

Alltogether, a very uneventful comeback. Like MJ with the Wizards.

What I do like:

- The three leaks.
