Instrumentation is still tight, but you get the feeling that this would have made a better EP than a full-album. The whole middle of the album feels like filler between an excellent front and book-end.
You know that feeling where completely irrational partisanship takes over and you almost don’t even give a remake or, in this case, a collection of cover songs, a chance? This is an album that almost falls into that category.
With the physical release of the Kanye West/Jay-Z collaboration LP Watch The Throne this week, a week after the digital release, I’ve had a whole week to let this album sit on me and I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s exactly what it says it is. Nothing more, nothing less.
