I was jammin' this before work today. This is a brilliant album, and it lived up to what hopes I had for it. Great assessment in saying it's his best since "stillmatic". This is my #1 hip-hop album of 06. And it came out LAAATE in the game...

Easy. Nas is one of the most talented figures in music of the last 20 years, All Time Low is a bunch of angsty 20-somethings playing a rote recitation of generic pop punk. Which would you give the better review to?

you must be kidding, right? nas is good and all, but not one of the most talented. ATL know theyre not groundbreaking and they know they sound like everyone else, but they have fun doing what they do. You can't really compare both of these bands, well artist since Nas is his own man, and be completely serious, and by attacking ATL and labeling them as "a bunch of angsty 20-somethings" is pretty petty of you since you have not met them.

plus, you listen to your fair share of roto recitating generic poppunk bands.

The record is amazing, but I still think that Clipse's new record is above HHID. The shit bumps. Although the song with Jay-Z on HHID (black republican) is pretty dope.

Ditto, Clipse is still easily my favorite hip hop album of this year.

its more that hip hop got too commercial and everyone let the labels take all the power from the artist.

lol top 5 all time? oh my. you mean for the year 2003? it's yearly not all time.
but then you must also be saying that 50 cent is much more talented than Nas? he had 2003's number 1 album. as well as creed, who was number 2 in 2002! wow, yeah youre so right.

if you want to get someone who's extremely talented, go listen to some tupac and biggie. or better yet just stick to listening to nas, at least he's good and aint no vanilla ice.

nothing nas does from here on out will ever touch illmatic...

...on a side note, whats all this shit about All Time Low? Put Up or Shut Up was terrible, by any genre standard. Plus, I seem to remember most people running with the more favorable review that compaired em' to The Academy Is and Cartel, so it's a moot point anyway...
