The Blueprint may be Jay Z's most captivating record since Reasonable Doubt, but its predictably detached mood reflects the master hustler's superior ability to trick out lacklustre subject matter with lyrical complexity and brief flashes of manufactured introspection. The Blueprint, a solid mix of pre-programmed radio hits ("Izzo", "Girls, Girls, Girls") and better-than-average mid-tempo compositions ("Never Change", "Song Cry"), confirms the Brooklyn rapper's legendary status. Blistering flames of the Queensbridge/Jay Z feud fan high with "Takeover", a direct attack on Nas, set over The Doors' rock & roll burner, "5 To 1". "Renegade" provides the album's only full-on guest appearance. Jay and Eminem take this opportunity to address haters (within the industry and in the general population) who don't understand the mind of an artist. Jigga spells it out on the title track: "Reasonable Doubt-classic, shoulda went triple". The Blueprint might not be quite on par with Reasonable Doubt but it is reasonably good. --Rebecca Levine

The Blueprint is one of the few C.D.'s that I can listen to all the way through. There aren't any skits it's just fourteen (including the two bonus tracks) straight tracks. The production on the album is amazing. The now hugely popular Kanye West donated his soulful melodies to four of the songs. Even the radio-hits off of the Blueprint are still great tracks. "Izzo" and "Girls, girls, girls" could easily have been trite MTV-fodder but, instead they provide light-hearted intermissions to the serious tone of the rest of the L.P.
The only guest appearance other than the regular Roc-crew is that of Eminem. One of the best songs off the album Eminem and Jay-z destory a track that the great white hope himself produced. It is difficult to name my favorite song off of the album because this is one of the albums that is just best to listen to all the way through. But, that being said my favorite song off of The Blueprint is the Just Blaze produced track U Don't Know.
The Blueprint is one of my favorite C.D.'s of all-time and is the Illmatic of the new millenium; the album that defines a decade.

Great album musically, but it is an incredibly low quality pressing. The audio quality is literally unbearable, and is not the least bit enjoyable on vinyl. Read morePublished 11 months ago by brayden duff
