Comment: I can´t relate to the overall set of comments under this release right here. Among the many records that are getting massive mainstream publicity these days, featuring artists of NO integrity and NO artistic pride whatsoever, Kweli´s effort stays stong at assuring that the essential elements of lyricicity and true poetic awareness still stay relevant in this sphere of music.
Moreover, I disagree throughly with the people that demand Talib to keep bringing "that 90´s sound". He is actually doing it but just not literally. With "Gutter Rainbows", he brings it back and with a great flip to it for a more current approach, technically and instrumentally. And it works. Of course, as always, the call of different opinions will and can not be narrowed down but this record right here is for the open-minded. The full cut is so well-balanced in production and thematical up-build that seeing the number on senseless comments up on here is truly hurtful. To the point where you might need to assume: people simply can´t value quality hip hop any more. Some of the people "we grew up with" have gave up turf in their content - THAT IS NOT THE CASE FOR KWELI.

Comment: Considering Talib is one of the few exceptional lyricists still doin it, this is a massive disappointment. Beats are the main culprit here, with majority of them sounding very boring and amatuerish at best, even the big name producers don't step up on this album. Sorry Talib, lyrically you always deliver but the beats on here really dragged the whole album down. We know what you about so hopefully the next release will be a much better offering. ps I didn't hold much hope for this one anyway from when I peeped the new Reflection Eternal... Hi-Tek has really fallen off at the mo and is constantly churning out weird poppy type beats, nothing like the Hi-Tek of old... bring it back son... 1ne!

Comment: This album has songs on it that sound like they were made for Hot 97. Not a big fan of R&B beats either. Not a big fan of using so many different producers either. All groups/MC's need their own sound to differentiate themselves. Ohhh the days of uniqueness.

Comment: the only reason I give this album a three is because I think talib could have done better. their is a few burner on this album, but the rest are pretty garbage. I like tabibs work, which I give him the respect, but just not the full respect he deserves.

Comment: it's alright, like all of talib's solo albums there good but not great, all of bangers and their share of clunkers, just like this album, he's got two or three more albums before he makes his classic solo

Comment: Yeah man lol, that track Gutter Rainbows is so cool I gotta laugh for a sec. Talib's getting better and better on every album cause he doin' his own music his way! Shout out to that Reflection Eternal album too with him and Hi-Tek! Fiyah shit bwoi! But I'm waiting on another album from you and Mos and another track by you and Styles P again! Bring it homeboi!

Comment: Talib always does his thing. So low hit me somthin tough. Marco Polo came with some fire but I think there was to much production on this album. There were to many attempts for a 'new song'. Wasn't fellin it. I like this album but I skip to many songs for it to be called a great. BLACKSTAR LIVES FOREVER! Peace and love.

Comment: pure rubbish? wtf, listen dj seaweed, sounds like you spin some petey pablo or some shit because kweli is always on point with the lyrics, maybe not all the time with production but the dude does his thing. I mean, how many people would love to hear a kweli/premo album? that would be bananas. big ups!!

Comment: i think the album overall is pretty fresh but I think some of the beats are a little bit toooooooo over produced! the lyrics are always fire from talib but I just think if he had better beats to go with his flow he would be so much better!!!!! keep it simple that's what the people want!!!! take it back to the 90s fuck!!

Comment: Lyrically I dont got any complaints about Talib, but since his early days he didnt release a full album where I could say: the lyrics & beats are dope.
After seeing the lineup of produces for this album I had high expectations... but after listening to it... Its "just" another Talib Kweli album, very good lyrics but not average beats, I wont be listening to it for too long.

Comment: Sorry, not feeling this at all. Which is extra problematic since 12 of 14 songs sound exactly the same and 2 are straight up wack pop shit.
Used to be a Kweli fan but his last albums are hella boring.
