Few retirements are as short-lived as that of New York rap mogul Jay-Z. Barely two years after bowing out in 2004, hes 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 PattisonSee all Product Description

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.
