    Knew all the critics would give this 5 star because it’s pretentious, overcomplicated and full of ‘poetry’.

    No good songs though, which used to be important.

    d--- so much better

    To say something positive though I really love the production on Worldwide Steppers

    depends on which group of people you ask

    I'd say the overall reception is slightly positive, though it might get worse based on if anything happens with his Auntie Diaries slurs or if it doesn't age well (which I think it'll age better than d--- tbh)

    I genuinely don't get the "woke, pretentious album" criticism, it's f---ing Kendrick if you didn't expect that than idk what to tell you lol. And this is nowhere near as """pretentious""" as tpab, it's just personal.

    Oh for the record, this isn't half as pretentious as TPAB which was like that all over. And I also enjoy like half of it. I could easily do without songs like worldwide steppers, United in Grief, Cry Together, Aunt Diary and Mother I Sober. But yes, it is Kendrik so its not a surprise.

    And as you said, that's personal. Of course it is because there is no such thing as rating music (or any art) "objectively" without any personal bias.

    But, like I said, I'll definitely keep an handful of dope songs I mentioned!

    I honestly think this is also some sort of counter reaction to all the critics acting like this is the best album ever made. Just because he talks about some social issues it seems.

    Man kendrick really becoming the new ******

    Kendrick could release a LP with nothing but fart sounds and critics would rate it 9/10.
