Thank Me later Album Review.....

I know I'm a little late with it but i had to not just listen to the album but LISTEN to the album. Drake finally released his first LP and did he live up to the hype.....Not all the way. The 14 track album is like a strong 7 out of 10. It just isn't a classic album like a Reasonable Doubt or Get Rich Or Die Trying. Thank Me Later isn't bad at all its a good album BUT its like a weaker So Far Gone instead of a ground breaking LP with some tracks sounding just like tracks from the mixtape/EP. Drake has some gems on the album like The Resistance where he raps "Bout to roll me a blunt with my list of regrets/ Burn it all, burn it all, I’m starting it fresh" and Light Up where Jay Z out shines him but Drake holds his own next to the king of rap. The album does has its draw backs like Cece's Interlude which is like Bria's Interlude and i thought he would of went hard on Thank Me Now but its average at best. Drake does his best sade impersonation on a song called Karaoke a nice relaxing track to ride out to. Overall Thank Me Later is good with some good guest appearances and production wise its good most done from his producer "40" but the album falls short of the hype.
