Customer Review

on December 21, 2010
As I am MUCH more of a fan of his wife, I've never really listened much to Jay-Z. In the summer, I watched one of his concerts online... a lot of the songs I heard are found on this set. The best album includes fourteen of Jay's hits, as well as five new ones. I'm happy to have bought it. The inclusion of "'03 Bonnie & Clyde" was the selling point for me, as I've never actually owned this song... but have listened to it hundreds of times.

After watching Beyoncé's "I AM... World Tour" concert film, I was looking to buy "I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me)," which is one of the songs she incorporates into her medley performances. Now I have it. The language on this album is somewhat excessively explicit (if that makes sense), but it only bothered me for some songs. I should have just bought the edited version I saw in Wal-mart, but I kept telling myself it wouldn't do. :P

My favorite tracks from the volume include "Run This Town" with Rihanna and Kanye West, "Bonnie & Clyde" with Beyoncé, "Encore," "I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me)," "Izzo (H.O.V.A.)," and "Big Pimpin'." The explicitness of that last track cracks me up. Don't know why. Again... :P

As for the new songs, I don't like them too much. They've grown on me after a few listens, but they can't compare with the others on the set. Anyway, I'm looking forward to a volume two, which will hopefully include another Beyoncé record. :D
