why does this album get so much hate? i started listening to it again in its entirety after a couple of years and its a solid album from start to finish. can lupe fans critique the album for me and tell me why they hate it or like it.

Pretty much this tbh.

Hearing Shining Down, Army Girl, What U Want on top with seeing the live performances of Scream (still want that CDQ) and State Run Radio (hell pretty much most of the songs on Lasers) got me hype into a point where I thought we were getting an amazing rap album.  Then the CD came out and it didn't come close to what I expected.

However, I am one of the few who did like the album, but in the majority of the disappointed.

overproduced electronic beats, fruity ass hooks, falls short on subject matter, lacks overall depth that we've come to expect from Lupe.

Everything you said was on point except this. It really, really doesn't. That and Lupe's rapping(even dumbed down it was great) were the only things holding that album together to me.

content was there but the execution was far too thin to latch on to. you can tell his heart wasn't in that album at all.

You have to be kinda open minded to like Lasers.
Its a beautiful album and I give it a solid 7/10 hell maybe an 8.
And its still better than a lot of shit hiphop music we hear today

the album had State Run Radio, Coming up, Words I never said, Never Forget You...etc. Which are all great songs to me.

What's sad though, is that a lot of fans don't realize this. They think Lupe put out lasers on his own.

Its not that bad, i honestly enjoy it. Only a few songs are skippable but its not that bad at all. Is it as great as his previous? No. But it was a lighter (overall) hip pop record that was catchy

yeah i kinda know what you guys mean now. All Black Everything is def the best song on the album. I've heard that before but listening to the whole album now, nothing beats it still.
I'll always have a soft spot for Show Goes On Though. It may be poppy, but during a real real dark time in my life it would come on pandora & really gave me a brief glimmer of hope.
