Rolling Stone sums up the new Kendrick Lamar release by saying, "One of the
year's most lauded and analyzed albums, with a range of musical, political and
emotional textures that will leave fans peeling back its layers for months to
come, DAMN. features a huge cast: guest artists Bono, Rihanna, James Blake, Kid
Capri and bassist Thundercat, along with a wide-ranging list of co-producers
(from Lamar regulars like Sounwave and DJ Dahi to Greg Kurstin, best known for
"DAMN. is a widescreen masterpiece of rap, full of expensive beats,
furious rhymes, and peerless storytelling about Kendrick’s destiny in America."
- Matthew Trammell, Pitchfork
"If To Pimp a Butterfly was the best rap album in 2015, DAMN. is the platonic
ideal of the best rap album of 1995, a dazzling display of showy rhyme skills,
consciousness-raising political screeds, self-examination and
bass-crazy-kicking. Kendrick has many talents – pop star, avant-garde poet,
lyrical gymnast, storyteller. But here he explores what we traditionally know as
a 'rapper' more than on any of his albums to date. DAMN. is a brilliant
combination of the timeless and the modern, the old school and the next-level.
The most gifted rapper of a generation stomps into the Nineties and continues to
blaze a trail forward. Don't be confused if he can't stay humble." -
Christopher R. Weingarten, Rolling Stone
"Through example, he’s pushed rap, and music in general, to strive to become
something more. The world is a much better place with him in it." -
"Countless rappers claim to have transcended the game. Kendrick Lamar
actually does." - Christine Clarke, Now Magazine
"DAMN. is, in short, the struggle of a man of faith to understand why
tragedy and misfortune still happen to good people. The genius of Kendrick Lamar
is his ability to frame questions of faith inside music that seems built just to
rattle big speakers. A smart rapper knows his audience. There are people who
will jam out to the beats and flows and never question the words. There are
philosophers who will comb the lyrics and suss out the biblical references.
DAMN. is striking both as big-ticket rap music and as a theological crisis, the
kind of record that grabs you at ground level and keeps revealing layers every
time you come back." - Craig Jenkins, Vulture
"Kendrick Lamar is the best rapper alive not just because he's the best
rapper alive, but because he's able to move and inspire people in ways that no
rapper since 2Pac has done. With DAMN., Kendrick humanizes himself both
lyrically and sonically, making something that is equally challenging and
enjoyable. In 2017, that is a colossal accomplishment." - Jacob Moore,
Pigeons & Planes
"One thing is certain: The album's significance will surely be epic.
Lamar's raps about fear, gratitude and good old-fashioned storytelling put this
album among 2017's masterworks." - Suraya Mohamed, NPR
