People are all of a sudden hailing Blueprint 3 like it’s a insta-classic. I’ll admit I’ve softened my stance on BP3 since I reviewed it, i.e. it’s grown on me a little bit. But, I still feel like it’s sorta forgettable. And I’ll also admit from a 9-11 marketing standpoint, that Jay-Z Madison Square Garden concert was genius. So, these sales results are not a surprise. But, I still think less of a person that tweets on twitter that Blueprint 3 is tha best album evar.
