Kendrick Lamar's DAMN. is a well-thought-out statement that challenges the listener to reflect upon its duality and contradictions. While the album lacks an overall cohesiveness, each song on its own is beautifully constructed, abundant with substance and dynamic production. In “FEAR.” and “DUCKWORTH.”, Lamar effortlessly guides the listener through his thoughts and stories while proving the length and breadth of his progressive, creative range in the serene “PRIDE.” and the upbeat “HUMBLE.” DAMN. is Kendrick Lamar at his most raw and versatile; it is a panoramic window into one of the most creative minds of this generation.
