J Cole Album was Boring.

    Gifted had a few cuts on there I really like. some not so well. its a pretty decent album , i expected a much better one though after those songs he dropped the year prior ..

    This album came out at the wrong time. If this came out in the fall/winter time, I think it would've had a better reception.

    It did have a good reception though, the album went gold. It's not like he took a step backwards like Big Sean did with Detroit, it's better than his debut.

    I was talkin about critical reception. Sideline Story actually got better reviews than Born Sinner did.

    I like the album, but the boring connotation is VERY understandable, its not an album where I can just sit still n listen, cuz I'm likely to nod off, personally I'd love for Cole to hit up krit for some beats

    this still needs to happen, also i still havent gone back to listen to either j. cole album twice

    I thought sideline story was better. 🤬 rise and shine is so goat. Too me born sinner was more consistent but the highs were higher on ss.

    I just feel like he lost that special feel to his music. His beats just feel forced and he sounds a little uninspired.
