Listening on the Low (Music Review)

Released: Sept 2013
Nothing Was the Same - Drake C+

I really liked the last two Drake albums, so I want to give Nothing Was the Same the benefit of the doubt.  I've listened to it at least a half-dozen times and only half of it sounds fresh.  The other half sounds forced, like someone who knows he can toss off an album and it'll be a hit because he's "the man." "Worst Behavior" is probably the second most annoying song he has ever done (first place goes to "Take Care" featuring Rihanna).  But, "Furthest Thing" and "Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2" reminds me why I can never count him out.
