Classic albums are VERY hard to come by these days; where it seems all the material we hear in music is disposable and forgettable after a few short weeks. B.O.B. (AKA Bobby Ray) is an exception. He is an ARTIST, not just an MC. He is one of the few creative musicians who not only raps, but sings, experiments with his voice, and plays the majority of the instruments he uses. His creativity is what comes across in a blaring light which forces many to compare him to such eccentric artists as Andre 3000. This is a complete album, with no fillers or skits. 12 songs that blend well which each other and fulfills the void that is left in hip-hop at its current state.

1. "Don't Let Me Fall" - 5/5. This starts the album out and gives the listener a very clear presentation as to what is to come. The beginning of the beat is a piano being played and the chorus enters. This particular track is produced by Bobby Ray himself. It is one of my favorite tracks on the album. Surprisingly, the lyrics are very worthwhile - something that might not be expected with such an eccentric artist. The words tell a story of a man who seems to be at the highest of his climb to being the star he is or is becoming.

2. "Nothin' On You" feat. Bruno Mars - 4/5. This track is probably the most "pop" song on the album. But B.O.B. doesn't just throw a song together. He puts a lot of effort into the lyrics and the energy of the song. It is VERY catchy, but not in an annoying sort of way. It's a classic pop song directed toward the ladies. It can be considered the obligatory radio record of any hip-hop album.

3. "Past My Shades" feat. Lupe Fiasco - 5/5. The song begins very slow and then erupts into a beat which is only outdone by B.O.B. and Lupe's delivery.

B.o.B is one of those kind of hip hop artists that go way beyond the boundaries of usual rappers. The thing that makes B.o.B so special is that his creativeness isn't controlled by what everyone else likes, he likes do things his way. B.o.B is a rapper, singer, musician and producer which basically means that he has control of everything he is doing which is something a lot of rappers can't say. He combines a lot of musical genres such as techno, rock, pop and a little bit of jazz into his music which makes this album very versitile.

This album is a very good debut album, it introduces the listeners to what kind of artist B.o.B is. The album is good in creativeness but there is no real balance to it, it feels like he is experiementing a bit too much because every single track is different (which may be a good thing) but for me is really hard to stay focus to who B.o.B really is. The production on this album is very well done, theres nothing on this album that is too crazy or disjointed, and B.o.B's lyrical ability deserves some credit, he flow can change with the beat very easilt and smooth. The only thing I have a problem with this album is the fact that there is no real balance to the album, there is no real theme, its just a bunch of a really good songs that B.o.B put together.

Top Tracks
1) Nothin' On You feat. Bruno Mars - My personal favorite track on the album, everyone should know this track by now. The hook is one of the most memorable and catchiest I've heard in music in a while thanks to Bruno Mars. B.o.B's verses are very catchy and get you into the song a lot more. The production is smooth and the lyrics are great. 5/5

2) Airplanes, Part II feat.

I have been a fan of Bobby Ray for over a year now, with all of his mixtapes that he generously provided over the years. And I can say that FINALLY today is the day of his much anticipated debut! I've had quite some time to listen to each track now, and multiple times- coming to the conclusion that this CD is amazing! BoB is such a talented musician- yes, not just a rapper, a musician. The collaborations on the album are perfect, Bruno Mars is someone I have had my eye on for months now, and cannot wait for his debut, the collab with Hayley Williams is also incredible, and you can't go wrong with Eminem (my favorite artist of all time [pre-encore slim anyways]). The only collab I could do without is T.I., but I'll let it slide.. I still enjoy BoB's part of the song.

Every track is unique and fun to listen to. I wish it were a bit longer of an album, but I can't complain because not one track is really worth skipping over.

Highlights include:
Don't Let Me Fall
Nothin' On You
Airplanes 1 and 2
The Kids
Lovelier Than You
but really, every track could be considered a highlight.

PLEASE go and support this artist, and B.o.B , please keep giving us quality music and I will always support you.

5/5 Stars. Easily.

This is one of the very few albums that I resigned myself to buy simply because B.o.B is a great up-and-coming artist that needs support to be successful and I want to be apart of that. He experiments with different tones and sounds and shows us that he's a multi-faceted character that isn't going to just be the same type of boring, dull, rappers that get too much air time on the radio talking about the same things. Anyways let's get this review started, this is my first one so I'm going to try and articulate as best as I can:

1. Don't Let Me Fall 4/5 - Definitely a good way to start off the album. It kicks off with an smooth beat clad with guitars and pianos that gives the song depth. The lyrics are also very heartfelt talking about being so high up that if you fall you're done, as the hook pleads "What goes up, must come down/But don't let me fall"

2. Nothing On You 3.5/5 - Of course the song that introduced Bobby Ray to the public as a rising star that should be known. It's one of the more pop tracks that was made for the radio, mostly because of Bruno Mars' fantastic hook that really helped make this song good. Now this track isn't my favorite, it's good, but I just get caught in the repetition of the beat and B.o.B's unchanging rhyming pattern that the song just loses me up until the part where the guitar chords come in towards the end. Still a great song that shows the diverse character that is B.o.B.

3. Past My Shades 5/5 - Always love a song with Lupe in it and he has a pretty good verse in this song. The song is actually pretty good lyrically even though the hook might get on some peoples nerves I think I get what B.o.B means. He's trying to show who he is through his music but people only take what he does at face value.

4. Airplanes 4.
