    Just got Lasers. Hands down, my number 2 album of 2011. (behind that one LP album that came out :awesome:)

    Although I highly anticipate F&L: Part II like a dog waiting for its owner to open the door so he can run all over the place, Lasers is going to keep me ocupado for a while. Especially "Till I Get There", best track on the album.

    ^ 1000 SUNS CAME OUT LAST YEAR 2010!!!11

    Also, I love verse 2 of Till I Get There. One of the few places on this album where you get the hint of the real Lupe.

    I KNOZ, BUT I STILL COUNTZ IT SINCE IT WUZ FROM SEPTEMBER 2010!!!!11@1!

    And I loved every verse (especially verse 2, you're right, that has a touch of the real free Lupe), even the chorus/hook of "Till I Get There". And "Out of My Head" is a guilty pleasure for me, since I HATE Trey Songz, but can't get enough of Lupe.

    ...

    In other news, I don't think I've found anyone out of my hip-hop head friends that actually liked Lasers. There's something about it that just screams to not like it.

    It's because when the album's at its best it's Lupe but in a poppier context which is great, but the rest really could be any old rapper with any old singer and is just generally bland and forgettable.

    Haha I was just replying to Agent O, but I guess I took that too far :p

    I haven't really asked any of my friends about LASERS, so I have no consensus on that yet.

    Stereo Sun, a track from the original Lasers that Lupe submitted to Atlantic, has leaked. Find it. It's dope!

    despite it's religious tone at the beginning it's better than anything on Lasers. ( I might change my mind, just my impression as I only can listen to it 3 times)

    Also, remember the leaks that happened last year that were suppose to be on Lasers? There are quite a few of them, someone should make a zip of them and call it, Real Lasers, or something. hint.

    The chorus of Break The Chain always reminds me of Boombox by The Lonely Island.

    Loving Till I Get There at the moment. Also State Run Radio is growing on me. Hopefully more tracks leak!

    So far, I'll give the album 6.5/10. There are some songs that are pretty good, but this album is just further proof that Lupe needs to get the fuck out of that label, so that he can have more creative freedom than what he has now.


    *sigh* What the fuck was Atlantic thinking? :hitself:

    This song pretty much owns Lasers on its ass.

    Don't particularly like any of these new songs either. +1 for the Top Gear reference though.
