4.0 out of 5 stars Can someone be a victim of their own success?, November 29, 2010

This review is from: Pink Friday (Explicit Version) [Explicit] (MP3 Music)
Thing is, when the hype surrounding you is so huge, being "good" isn't even good enough anymore. People begin to expect greatness every single time out and that's tough to do for any artist or professional at what they do. To a kid that has made straight A's their entire life, a B is almost seen as a failure in the eyes of some. You get the point. All in all, the album is decent. Stand out tracks for me.

Roman's Revenge - 5/5 - Slim Shady did his thing on this track. Roman held his own too. great hook.
Right Thru Me - 4/5 - Catchy. I'm sure a lot of chicks can relate.
Fly - 4.5/5 - Rihanna does an amazing job. Two solid verses from Nicki.
Save Me - 5/5 - Amazing Song. I can "feel" this song. Some songs do that to you. You just "feel" it.
Moment for life - 4.5/5 - is it me or is Drake killing every feature these days??? I have yet to hear a bad verse from him.
Check It Out - 4/5 - Fun dance song. Great verse from Nicki.

The other tracks are decent. 3-4 range. If I could more accurately rate the album, I would give it a 3.75 (4 for production and 3.5 for lyrics) due to the massive hype and praise. I was honestly expecting nothing less than perfection, but a B will do. Disregard any reviews that gave this album a 1. Cmon, be real, they couldn't have listened to the entire album. :-/

Agreed Glenn, this review was as honest as I could have been. I also agree with Brian rating, but I would give it a 3.95. Not quite a 4, but it was very acceptable for her first try... I bet that she'll come back with more of her personality on the next one. I also think people are real hard on her because she IS THE ONLY relevant FEMALE rapper and people have hyped her up so much that I believe that it doesn't matter what she put out (meaning it could have been a 5 star album) they would find something wrong just to bash her.
