Comparing to the last album is natural and it's also the easiest path. I would suggest spending a few minutes on the new versus the old (differences, growth, similarities) then try to get away from what's human or common for those who didn't hear the first album. I think that will give those who aren't listening to everything a better perspective - try compare it to all other rappers sophomore albums . . . then if possible all hip-hop albums (creativity, production, features, etc.) even if it's not your personal taste everyone has pros and cons on songs (production good, flow bad, etc.) Even if I don't like something I will try to relate the type of listener who would be into it. Over all great review I love the passion you all have and the articulate manor in which you conveyed your opinions. -All the best.
