Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Few retirements are as short-lived as that of New York rap mogul Jay-Z. Barely two years after bowing out in 2004, he’s back with Kingdom Come - and if he's set down the mic for a minute, it doesn't show. Backed by a dream team of producers (Just Blaze, Kanye West, Dr Dre, The Neptunes), with special guests including Pharrell, Beyonce, and Coldplay's Chris Martin, it's an A-list cast. Naturally, though, it's the Hova who's the star attraction, slightly older and prone to pontificating on his ten years in the game (see "30-Something"), but certainly no wiser: as he raps on "Trouble", he's still got "hands in the cookie jar". The first few tracks are pure consolidation, gleaming and boastful productions that remind you just how great Jay-Z is on the mic. Further in, though, Kingdom Come branches out in style: "Hollywood", the duet with Beyonce, is a jaded take on celebrity culture, while "Minority Report" relives the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina with the Bush Administration in the metaphorical sights. Finally, the Coldplay-produced "Beach Chair" concludes the album on a spiritual note, Jay-Z announcing "life is but a dream" as Chris Martin trills like an angel atop echoing drums and distorted, music-box guitar. If you thought it could never work, you were clearly underestimating.--Louis Pattison

4.0 out of 5 stars The Kingdom Come-Back!! 3 Jan 2007
By BM
Format:Audio CD
Since he retired, Jay-Z seems to have been doing more work than ever. It's no suprise then, that he's dropped a new album. Kingdom Come is by no means his best album, but I feel that it has been harshely reviewed.

Admitidly, it does have a few weak tracks, but it's still a quality album. And when was the last time you heard a completley perfect album?

Highlights include all the Dre tracks. Lost One has a brilliant beat, and it will get stuck in your head. 30 Something is the best track on the album, with the easily the best beat and Jay probably spitting some of the best verses on the album. Trouble is also insanly catchy, and Minority Reportis also a great track.

The Just Blaze tracks are also stand outs. Kingdom Come is probably the best of them but Oh my God and Show Me What You Got are also brilliant.

But there are two songs which completely spiolt the album for me, Anything and Hollywood. Anything has a horrible beat, and Hollywood is by far the worst on the album.

Overall Jay-Z is far from his best, and lets hope he dosent retire on this, because we know he can do so much better, lyrically his standards have slipped too, but he is still undeniably one of the best lyracists in hip hop today. But Kingdom Come is a brilliant album, which I definatly recomend, but dont expect to like it all.

4.0 out of 5 stars I expected more... 22 Nov 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album is a well rounded hip hop album with what is a DREAM TEAM of producers; Kanye West, Jus Blaze, Dr Dre and The Neptunes all feature. Now on paper, a dream team of producers and 'the best living rapper' returning from retirement, you're expecting a classic. This is not a classic. It is however a GOOD album, with most tracks being very listenable to the hip hop ear. 'Show me what you got' his first single is definitely a brilliant track, with jus blaze producing at it's finest and from that you would think the album would be on point, this is only partially the case. There are a few high points like 'Anything' featuring Usher and Pharrell, and the final track with Chris Martin is a very interesting fusion. However overall, Hove isn't firing on all cylinders like I and many others thought that he would on his first solo album in 2 years, but it is still DEFINITELY worth a purchase!

4.0 out of 5 stars Kingdom Come - good comeback - could be better 28 Nov 2006
By Mag B
Format:Audio CD
for everything being said negative by some people and by some critics, it could be said that Kingdom Come is not good. I can say that there are some really good tunes on here, notably 'Show Me what you got', 'trouble', kingdom come, lost one, beach chair and many others. production is slick form just blaze, dr. dre and others while blaze could do with a bit more air time. chris martins appearance is surprisingly good. 'dig a hoe' feat ne-yo and 'anything' with pharrel and usher are defienitely the worst on the album, hence not 5 stars. too much hype and too much expectation - people just can't deal with change as jay raps from another point of view in society than when he started in his roots. still, a fine display and can't wait for the next - H.O.V.A's legend continues - the only way up is better

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not great 7 Dec 2006
By Rit
Format:Audio CD
Jay's latest album - like the best (Muhammed Ali) he could resist the alure of the game and had to come back from "retirement". In my opinion Jay should have left the game with his black album and guested on other joints so that the people would want more but hey ho. I think Kingdom Come is a good album and there are some decent tracks. Notably, Kingdom Come, Trouble, 30 something and dig a hole. In conclusion it's a good album but looking at jay's back catelogue it should've been great.

2.0 out of 5 stars not great 9 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is a disappointing album. Jay Z has made worse but he's also made better. There are 4 main reasons to buy it: (1)Show Me What You Got - starts with a familiar horn loop used once by Public Enemy and a soul sample used by El Da Sensei on his album from last year basically making this track sound identical to his track (called 'Up In Da Spot!' if you're interested check it out), but its a good track and there's an element of chaos to it which is missing from a lot of commercial rap lately. (2)Lost One ft.Chrisette Michele - Above average Dr.Dre beat (if you consider the stuff he's done lately) with a laid back piano, reminiscent of Naughty By Nature's "Would Have Done The Same For Me" and a nicely sung hook by Chrisette Michele who appears to be Def Jam's new in-house chaunteuse because she appears on Nas's album as well. A solo album from her would be cool because she's got a really good voice. (3)30 Something - Another Dr.Dre beat and another piano loop, but slightly edgier this time. Good track. (4)I Made It - the best beat on the album by a mile and proof that commercial beats don't have to suck, it's just coincidence and unfortunate that most of them do. Except for those four tracks every other track on this album is rubbish, which is a real shame. Kanye West contributes a substandard (by his standards) beat, the overrated Neptunes try and reinvent the concept of a hip hop beat at 4000bpm. and fail on their track, and the track with Chris Martin from Coldplay is one of the most ill-advised pop/rap crossover tracks ever attempted. All the rest of the tracks are generic commercial rubbish not even worth commenting on. Read more ›
