Through his music he reveals his soul and it is truly a beautiful thing.
S. Kearns
A friend of mine suggested listening to some of his older stuff, and after hearing only 2 songs on this album (Love Song, and Ego), I instantly bought it.
M. Twitty
While it's not the same without the incomparable Ryan Lewis, this album is still very solid with a lot of great songs.

I just bought The Heist yesterday without knowing who this guy was and was blown away once I listened to it.
I saw he had another album with 20 songs for 7.99!!!!!! WTF!!!

All of the songs are mind blowing. In my other review I said that The Heist was probably one of the the best rap albums I ever heard. After listening to the Language of my World, Macklemore might just be one of the best rappers ever. Period.

Buy this album. You will not be disappointed.
Macklemore is here to stay without a doubt.

Macklemore is just... PHENOMENAL. He lives and breaths hip hop. You can tell that the man poured everything he had into this album because each and every track is a piece of art. I don't mean that in a pretentious way. I mean to say that I can listen to each track on its own and feel something different. They are all quality. Some are hilarious, some are political, some talk about the art form of hip hop. Each one brings something a little different. Macklemore is a poet, no doubt about it. Not to mention the beats are phenomenal. It makes you want to turn up your speakers, close your eyes, and just let it absorb you. He incorporates some funk, a little bit of soul, a little bit of rock. Everything is unique. The tracks aren't weighted down with distorted or overwhelming beats, it's just PURE.

Buy it, you won't regret it. And if you get a chance to see him live, do it. Because I have never witnessed a better performer in my entire life. He was made to do this. Through his music he reveals his soul and it is truly a beautiful thing.

Damn...where do I begin. I'm getting pretty tired of the "slept on" phrase and "underground" coinage, but...this album without a doubt is. Great delivery, beats, content, etc. I don't wanna be one of those nobody's that breaks down an entire album like my detailed opinion is relevant so I'm gonna just end at this- I listen to hip-hop like a fiend. And this out of the 40 albums I've listened to in the past 12 months this gentleman's is the best.

If this album served as my only Macklemore experience, I wouldn't be reviewing it. I wouldn't spend the time. Mackelmore's growth, however, demands comment and this album serves as a musical stepping stone. In my ears, the truth of this album is that it's disjointed. There are tons of great aspects to it and many of the songs would be exceptional save for the contradictions of light and dark. Take the intro. It starts with a dark, pulsating, coliseum beat which is quickly supported by electronic horns working hard to continue that dark "war like" march forward. But then the dark stops. The loop ends with this light high pitched flourish that seems out of place and contradictory to the established tone. As a listener, I am pulled in to the expansive aggressiveness and snapped out of it by the light flourishes. I would say, more than anything else, that disjointed use of light and dark collapses this album. Not that it needs to. In fact, I would argue that the balance of light and dark (or serious) is what makes the Heist and The Unplanned Mixtape so exceptional, but this album represents an effort in that direction, not a success.

With that said, there are plenty of songs to enjoy in this album. If you like the silly deepness of Macklemore's ... And We Danced, American, or Thriftshop, you'll find it here in the form of "Penis Song" and "Bush Song." In fact, these attempts at the song type are largely on par with his later works because they are consistent throughout the presentation in terms of lyrics, beats, and instrumentation.

"White Privilege" contains all the right elements of a lyrically sharp song in which Macklemore essays on the theft of hip hop by the white, privileged class and his own role in that effort.

great album from macklemore. solid lyrics and solid production. Seattle hip hop in general is so real and keeps to the roots of this art form (blue scholars, common market, etc)

stand out tracks include:
- white privilege
- claiming the city
- i said hey
- city dont sleep
- contradiction
- as soon as i wake up

check out their other stuff as well: "The Unplanned EP" and "The VS. EP: Macklemore X Ryan Lewis"

Like so many others, Macklemore appeared on my radar when he came out with his beautiful song about gay marriage, "same love". I liked his music so much that I went back and bought all his older albums, including this one, and it is really amazing. His lyrics about white privilege, homelessness, and gender expectations in this album are piercing and perceptive, and I get more out of the songs with each listen. Highly highly recommend!!

My initial introduction to the artist Macklemore was an interview in relation to the song "My Oh My", an ode to the longtime Seattle Mariner's baseball announcer, Dave Niehaus. Impressed by the respect paid to the legend, I was curious about Macklemore's other music. This is a great mix of thought provoking social commentary and some pretty hilarious reminiscing about the craziness of adolescence (Fake ID) along with political parody (Bush Song).
