I deleted the other tracks...
Pink Friday was better.
This album really just sounds like a bunch of filler and poorly written verses to me. Roman Holiday is pretty amazing but I honestly don't care for much else on it.
I agree with the two above me. All filler, no killer.
The dance tracks are the least offensive ones.
I'm keeping Automatic.
This album is amazing. It could have used some omissions and a tracklist shuffle but this is Nicki we're talking about. The vast majority of the tracks are absolutely killer.
"YOU NOT A BELIEVER SUCK A BIG DICK" etc.
It's like Eminem, Lady Gaga, and Britney made an album together. The psychosis, the bonkers productions, and just the sheer amount of different things they tried to cram into one album.
My current plan is to cherry-pick songs from the standard and deluxe, to use different artwork and a different track-list, and to make a nice 12-14 song album that is stellar.
Actually, it's like they asked Eminem to write an album for Britney, decided the tracks were not commercial enough, and forced her to record Steps demos.
I think the Complex interview really provides some insight the album. She's just having a shit ton of fun with it and doesn't care what anyone thinks. That probably provides itself to a less artistically arranged, complete collection, but I really like the vibe of "Here's everything I've been doing (arranged only by genre). Take it or leave it."
I get her. It's a postmodern attitude towards music. But I'm sorry, as a good old PJer, I prefer solid albums. I haven't heard this in full yet, but I'm pretty sure she could easily turn this into a punch-packed 12-track album with both, diveristy and cohesion.
It's very difficult, especially if you're only a casual fan, to get into albums like this. Her releasing singles randomly doesn't help either.
I guess I understand but don't approve. She has enough material for two albums in here. Like Noir said, this could have easily been a punch-packed 10-12 track album. My preferred tracklisting so far is:
Come On A Cone
Beez in The Trap
Pound The Alarm
For an album called Roman Reloaded, not only is it fluffier than her previous effort, but Roman isn't even present on the majority of the tracks.
It makes her debut album look like a masterpiece.
is she singing in a different language on the begining of gun shot??
Did anyone notice that "na-na-na-na" part in Whip It has the same melody as Wonders by The Sound Of Arrows.
This is such an amazing album. The only fault is the one most people have pointed out, that she's divided into such clear sections which kinda ruins the flow. At least each section is amazing.
Whip It and Pound The Alarm go HARD. Definitely my favourites at the moment.
Anyone else sing "Forget about the price tag" over parts of Gun Shot?!
The album is good until the whole dance section begins. Then it all goes downhill.
I just wish Nicki would make an album where I don't have to delete at least five tracks. I get that she's eccentric, but she needs to put a bit more thought into it.
Like Pink Friday, there are a few really awful tracks, but the quality of the good material more than compensates for it in the long run. I am totally in love with all the rap tracks, and the dance sound really works in her favour on at least three of the occasions. But I hope she got it out of her system now.
I want a full rap album next time. Like this was supposed to be. She's so fucking good at it, I don't see why she wouldn't.
No worse or better than Pink Friday.
Here's my preferred tracklist (made up of only the standard edition tracks)
01. Roman Holiday
02. Come On A Cone
03. I Am Your Leader
04. HOV Lane
05. Beautiful Sinner
06. Pound The Alarm
08. Marilyn Monroe
09. Right By My Side
