Is this album worth taking a listen to?  So far I've managed to go through Reasonable Doubt, The Blueprint, The Black Album, American Gangster, and The Blueprint 3.

I would say yes. I know it's not his best album, but i've never really understood the hate it gets. It's not that bad of an album

The hate was because it was his coming out of retirement album, with that said I love this album.

It's an underrated album. I am listening to it frequently lately - just got into it lately.
The best tracks are:

Beach Chair
The Prelude
Show Me What You Got
Kingdom Come
Minority Report
Oh My God

It's easily in the top 5 best-produced Jay albums.

Only song I don't really care for on that list is Show Me What You Got.  Too mainstream feeling for me for some reason.

I think if he would've put the just blaze version of dig a hole on the album, and took off Anything, mama i made it and hollywood. It would've been a really solid 11 track album. Its still great though. I love it

This album is not for the casual Jay Z, so far you have only shuffled through his good/great stuff, you haven't seen his average stuff mixed with some real good songs. I'd suggest you listen to the discography before you hit Black Album +, but if you're not for sure give Lost Ones a re-listen.
