4.0 out of 5 stars The Kingdom Come-Back!!, 3 Jan. 2007
This review is from: Kingdom Come (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.
