Answer on Whats your review on drake's thank later album?

I am a huge Drake fan, but I found this album weak compared to his mixtapes. 4 out of 5 for me too. Reasons:

a) He felt very cocky and full of himself at times, and
b) This goes with "a": his musical style has diminished ever since his first mixtapes

Gonig more 'in-depth' with "b," his lyrics actually sounded genuine and sincere, as opposed to this "Young Money facade" as I like to call it. I mean, you can't compare "Karaoke" off Thank Me Later with "Closer To My Dreams" or even "Houstatlantavegas" (in terms of the emotional "vibe" given off) from Comeback Season and So Far Gone, respectively. I liked it these lyrics didn't sound forced. This mainly applies to the soft-spoken songs, though. In his Thank Me Later rap songs, he still sounds pretty boastful, which is a turn-off for me. This theme, however, goes perfectly with "Miss Me, " the highlight of the album (can't stop listening to it lol).
