Amazing album once again. Different feel from the previous albums, which is great because you don't feel like you're listening to the same old style. You can hear the growth in his music. Lyrics are meaningful and deep. Singing is beautiful as usual.

DEFINITELY worth buying. There's a range of songs on there for everyone.

'Nothing Was the Same' is the third studio album from the fashionable Canadian rap artist Drake.

As you can see from the personal artwork of this record (an oil paiting by Kadir Nelson) Drake's sentiments are to focus not on the "money,..." (and the other stuff) and instead talk about the younger Aubrey Drake Graham 'in the basement'.

From the unconditional love on 'From Time' to the Michael Jackson-Quincy Jones synth soaked 'Hold on We're Going Home', Drake has delivered an album that resonates on a sincere and personal level but maintains the uber-chic and in-vogue sounds that have made him such a cool artist to listen to and like.

Take Care was an insanely tough act to follow and I had expected the album to be a little more upbeat after all the hype; as an electronic music fan the collaboration with Hudson Mohawke in 'Connect' was no where near as good as I had hoped for. But where this album may fall short in big sounds it makes up for in honesty and transparency.

'Nothing Was the Same' is a natural progression from 'Take Care'. The musical standard is as high but the personal progression is apparent in his lyrics - a man that in the fame and success has taken the opportunity to be proud of his security but not need the love and money that he was yearning for previously. In a year of cringe worthy sellouts Drake has stepped up and delivered. Take a bow.

Listen to: 'Worst Behaviour', 'From Time', 'Hold On, We're Going Home'

Best album this year (along with jay z magna) love the aggressive intro diff from the other albums he started off with, tuscan leather 9/10, furthest thing 10/10, started from the bottom 7/10, wu-tang forever 9/10, own it 9/10, worst behaviour 8/10 nice production, from time 9/10, hold on 10/10 love hearing melody off drake, connect 6/10 was a bit too slow and boring, the language 8/10, 305 to my city 7/10 i like it just to repetitive, too much 7/10, pound cake my personal fav 10/10 but i wish he had put the second part separate, come thru 10/10, all me 9/10, the motion 7/10. Was worth buying deluxe only problem i have with drake is that some songs go on for way too long, would have loved if he put 'girls love beyonce' on the album! great lyrics great production worth a buy!

simply put...this is an album that i've listened to countless times from the very beginning to the end. the production on this album is very impressive and drake those a great job musically through the entire LP. I recommend purchasing the deluxe edition or even the best buy version which includes the banger "Come Thru" and two other good tracks.

Picked up Drake's newest on the back of 'Hold On, We're Going Home', which is truly a great song. Be warned though there isn't much else R&B-ish on here, it's proper rap, and the Explicit label isn't joking. Personally, I don't mind that, and the lyrics are clever and powerful, but if you are looking for something more NeYo-esque, avoid it.

This is definitely a great album, before I listened to this album I wasn't really a Drake fan but after hearing this album I could definitely say that Drake is one of the best out there. This album is definitely worth buying as for the price of £9.90 you get both the hard copy and the mp3 version. Which is great as you get the hard copy and the mp3 for a bargain price, as most may know the mp3 version on Itunes is £10.99 so this is definitely worth your while. That's the main reason why I got this as you get it with free mp3. The mp3 is the main reason for my purchase as I don't use hard copies but I like to make a collection out of them.

NOTE: When I received the hard copy it was in horrendous condition, the case was broken and the CD kept falling out, the worst part was that, that is how Amazon dispatched it to me as there were no broken parts inside the packaging. I didn't bother with the return as it charges you the entire price of the mp3 version due to the free auto-rip, so I was better off keeping it as I pretty much only use the mp3 version, also its a hustle to return stuff. But of course this is the first time I had an major issue with Amazon, so this doesn't mean it would happen to you.

Drakes success was going to make this album half decent. I loved his records before he became big with his first album which was really good. I feel this one has very close sounds to it.

His ability to rap and sing really helps especially if you love both hiphop and RnB.

Being a big Drake fan, I could not wait for the album to be delivered. The seller meet my requirements by delivering the album well within the time frame "Good on you" and the album was off the chain.

Bought for Bro-in-law as per Christmas wish-list. He loves it so I consider it a good buy even though not my cup-of-tea. Good amount of songs for money although will be cheaper in 6 months I suspect.
