Jay-Z and West on the Throne?

So i've just stopped for a second listening to "Watch the Throne by Jay-Z and Kanye West" and.. I don't mind it personally.

This album comes out in Australia right after West headlined Splendour in the Grass at Woodford late July.
And with his hype that he brings with his new albums, West has delivered along with Jay-Z another great futuristic production project. The beats and production in this album is amazing! When you listen to the lyrics, which base on a huge loving and greatness of the two rapper's, the beats and layers of sounds amaze you, especially listening to it with a good sound system.

Another thing i noticed in this album that besides great samples of Otis Redding in track 4 "Otis" is that Kanye West and Jay-Z only used Queen B and new talent Frank Ocean. Beyonce say no more but using Frank Ocean twice showed trust and he has an awesome voice behind great music.

Some people might think that these two rappers don't sound or go good together but I'm going to beg the differ and after listening to tracks such as "Gotta Have it" and "Welcome to the Jungle" that there call and response technics are solid and thats great editing and chemistry i think because as a listener it's made a picture in my mind that their actually together rapping live!

So overall i rate this album as another great project from Kanye West and Jay-Z

i Give it a 3.5 out of 5
