Overall it's good, his voice is kind of hard to make out sometimes. Like the beats overshadowed his voice at some points, but he came correct.

I agree. I can barely hear what he's saying in Lonely Star.

I had taken the words out of his mouth and filled it with fart.

House of Balloons was alright to me. Thursday is better. Still, I can tell the Weeknd is gonna blow up, even more so than now. I got love for this cause. &)

defs agreeing with Gone standing out, and HOB being better than Thursday. The two have completely different approches I think, from beats to lyrics. Overall, I enjoyed HOB more than Thursday, but Thursday has some good tracks..Gone, Zone, Bird pt.2

You can hardly hear what Drake is saying. Background is way higher than the vocals. But this tape is dope.

House Of Balloons >>>>>>>>>> Thursday

Thursday just seemed like a lot of unfinished or throw away tracks. There was way to much mumbling also. Thats just my opinion.

Finished first playthrough a little while ago, and it's pretty much what everyone said, HOB was better but Thursday still didn't disappoint. Banging tracks for me were Lonely Star, Thursday, Gone, and Heaven Or Las Vegas. I thought Heaven Or Las Vegas was dope as hell, probably my favorite on the album.

I really enjoyed "Gone". I never liked the fact that all his songs are like 5-8 minutes long. A bit much for me.

IMO the mixtape was type boring. HOB was better as everyone has stated. the best songs to me are
the zone
the birds part 1
rolling stone

Birds part 1 has been out for a while :| but shit, this mixtape should come equipped with a fucking condom because it raped my ear drums. Fucking can't wait for Echos of Silence &)&)

House of Balloons and Thursday are both dope in their own ways.

I'm on my second playthrough now and the scary part is I think these are his filler tracks.

He does a lot of "falsetto" in this mixtape which is probably why so many people aren't feeling it, but the production is just as good or even better imo.
