    TPAB has always been the album I could rely on no matter what or when, but ranking it higher than DAMN. is like “calling your peanut butter sandwich a not fast aeroplane, they are just not in the same context”.

    DAMN. did things TPAB couldn’t do like bring in new fans that motivated them to listen further into Kendrick’s art, and talk about contrasting traits of Kendrick’s/our personality (e.g. LOVE. and LUST., as well as, PRIDE. and HUMBLE., etc.)

    At the same time TPAB did things DAMN. couldn’t, the beautifully complex lyrical content, the jazz influence that challenged today’s standards of music, the massive variety of emotions and different voices projected from Kendrick, etc.

    I bet we could go on like this for all of Kendrick’s albums, but based on what I see, I don’t think it’s fair to compare these albums in such a simplistic way.

    I’m happy to read all of your opinions, whether you agree, disagree or both.

    DAMN.

    DAMN. is the album that I have listened to the most by Kendrick. TPAB is his most unique work ever. Even though they were some beats I didN't really feel, there were some amazing stuff on that too. GKMC is the generic Kendrick album. It's great tho. All 3 are classics. I don't really like SXN80 that much but I didn't really give it the attention it deserved anyway. It's not really an album. So Kendrick has 3 great albums, probably all of them are classics. I wouldn't compare them at all. But DAMN is my fav.

    that's because DAMN is easier to consume. If you can constantly reread a generic novel because you find it entertaining and easy to read, that doesn't necessarily mean it's better than a Brothers Karamazov.

    what is this
