    No mention of “Come Thru” and “All Me?” And btw, “The Motion” did make the international version of the album as well as the Best Buy physical copy.

    Tbh, this review just lacked substance. You didn’t really go in depth into any of the songs specifically, doing not much more than merely mentioning their titles, and mainly spoke in generalities about the album and Drake as an artist. It would have been nice to see at least an analysis of a few lines of the lyrics from at least some of the songs as well as a synopsis of their plots.

    There was no discussion of the samples on the album, their significance, and why Drake chose them. In fact, there was no mention on how all of the songs on the album were part of a complex story line flowing from song to song. This could have just as easily been a review of 13 singles. It would have been nice to delve into Drake’s thought process creating the album as well as what inspired him to create each of the songs, and the album as a whole.

    I know this is a rather long comment, but being a huge fan of Drake it was hard for me to have listened so intently to not only this album, but his whole discography, and then see this empty, shallow review that simply doesn’t do justice to the sophistication and wonder that is Drake’s music.
