    Speaking of balance, I think you should have used "criticisms" to stay parallel with "praises" (or, alternatively, "praise" with "criticism"). But always guard against redundancy; "discussion" adds nothing here and could have been safely omitted.

    In the interest of being balanced in my praises and criticisms of your post, I found it to be very informative, balanced, and nuanced regarding the reception of the new Kendrick album! :emoji_wink:

    Music is to be enjoyed as its own entity, not just used to compliment an activity. People would listen to this when they feel like stopping the world & putting an album on, just like you would a book, a movie, a show etc. This is a very normal circumstance for music consumption.

    This is the double edged sword with this era, streaming has brought us with a playlist mentality along with instant gratification tendencies. It gives you the ability to expand your horizon with ease but at the same time put something else on immediately. Hearing 5 seconds of a concept album all interconnected & thinking “nah this won’t b--- in the whip, skip” lol. Which also leads to market dilution.

    People used to have albums on rotation for 6 months to a year, used to study everything they purchased, sitting down & reading the lyrics till they memorised them, the record’s became integrated into their lives, their routines. Now it’s clowned upon to take time to understand a project that’s been worked on for years.

    I'm still someone who puts on full albums 75% of the time. That's what's cool about vinyl to me is that it encourages the full album experience. I don't necessarily agree this album has to be sat down with and paid close attention to 100% of the time to enjoy it though. It's certainly worth sitting down with and reading along with the lyrics at least once, but for me most albums are. I do agree that it was crafted with the full album experience in mind, which I think is true for all of his albums really. Doesn't mean you can't slide some songs into a playlist tho. I'm largely an album person but I don't think all music has to be that.

    It's certainly nowhere near as good as the full album experience of Whole Lotta Red however, Kendrick could learn a lot from Carti when it comes to album arrangement

    Neither of their albums will flop no matter how much a--- they do or don't s---, they're two of the biggest artists in the world. That's like saying Drake is going to flop, it's simply not possible at this point in their careers. Too big to fail.

    Unless you mean trav and post albums are gonna s--- which is very possible and perhaps likely.

    Post is going downhill, and he doesn't have a hit this time. Travis has been dealing with a lot lately, and his singles also flopped so far.

    It also seem like the albums will s---.

    I’m the exact same, I’ve got the old head mentality but streaming at times has pushed me into the new mindset because it’s so easy to flick through different projects now & just hear a little bit & decide if it’s good for the gym, for the whip, for parties etc. & the craft can get lost this way. I think it takes your own volition to use streaming to your advantage whilst keeping the old mindset, which means playlists for casual listening & still going to albums when you want to focus.

    This album has a few cuts that can definitely be played in settings not pertaining to music listening in itself, but at least half of it I’d say isn’t catered for it, at least less than GKMC & d---. to me, which personally is fine.

    I can understand casual music listeners like in Koolo’s example to not feel most of this music based on that circumstance, but acknowledging that it’s not for you rather than projecting it onto an opinion of the music itself would make more sense to me than pretending no one listens to music on its own lol.

    That's for physical copies not streaming. Vince Staples released a "double album" less than an hour and Donda is a "single" album that's over 2 hours long. With streaming an album could go platinum from one song being listened to millions of times and the rest being listened to zero times.

    It's arbitrary and is just how the artist wants to present it. If it's on a streaming service there's no tangible difference between an album and a mixtape and a double album and a "playlist" in the case of More Life.
