The thing that fascinates me most about Future's recent output has been his relationship with drugs and addiction, which is more personal and reflective than anything I've heard. I understand he isn't as much of an addict as he leads on to be, but as a former pillhead/alcoholic myself, the hopelessness, despair, the menacing, brooding/pitch black beats to match... having every asset in the world at your disposal but wallowing in this miserable, reflective trapped headspace- it's as powerful a case against drugs personally for me as anything. That line on the album about pissing out last night's codeine- He captures those minute details and feeling of powerlessness so well because he's not on the outside looking in- he's waist deep in the fatal love/hate relationship.

Considering a lot of the general public is still against her, and the only negativity from the typical contrarians on social media I've seen is "Well, she wasn't as good as Whitney..." I consider it a resounding success

I retract this statement. The song makes so much more sense in the context of the album.

To me, the album kinda sounds it's aiming to be the spiritual cousin to "If You're Reading This It's Too Late"... I guess from the personal intimacy, cohesive mood and lack of an obvious single

"Really? That's it?" is not a good first impression

I feel like the next step for Macklemore is writing a song about how he understands the plight of trans people and scolding Caitlin Jenner for voting Republican

I'll never forget what my mom said when I brought home my used copy of Boys For Pele from the used CD store back in, maybe 2002. "Um. You know she's... kind of weird, right?"

I'm sure Linda Perry would have reacted the same way if it were Pink in the exact same situation...

You're not going to get even half as in-depth analysis on Billboard.biz as this here. Nice work guys. :)

Also not one mention of "Prison Sex" yet? Even in the comments? Though probably their most conventional, easily my favorite Tool song.

Maynard James Keenan was the catalyst to the devout atheism that fueled my 20's

So he wasn't just a big 90's underground rap fan. Got it.

I like the song... but as a deep mixtape track on a Future mixtape and not as the first thing we've heard from Kanye in half a year. I'm sensing some serious writers block on this project here.

I feel like "Ex's and Oh's'" spirit animal is "Black Horse & the Cherry Tree"

Wasn't expecting this to be the album to mess up my year-end list. What a pleasant surprise!!

Anyone else feverishly google/try and figure out how to spell "Nicki Minaj" after first hearing her on Drought 3's "Can't Stop Won't Stop" remix?

I agree about Kendrick... I know it's hands down the "best" release this year, but there are several albums I "enjoyed" more this year. That's where I'm having trouble.
