Back in the mid-'00s, Lupe Fiasco struck a nerve with his fashion-forward style, matched with cheeky verses and ear-tickling, loop-driven productions, which endeared him to fans and critics alike. Lasers (an acronym for Love Always Shines Everytime Remember 2 Smile) marks his 2011 return. Straight off the bat, it's clear that Lupe has no intentions keeping his original, underground-centric fan base, as he employs a lot more singing, radio-ready choruses, and a heavy, electro-pop influence on his tracks. The best joints here are the string-laced, Afro-centric anthem "All Black Everything," ridiculously catchy "Coming Up" featuring MDMA, and "Words I Never Said" with Skylar Grey. Other guests include John Legend, Trey Songz, and Matt Mahaffey.
I want my money back
all these positive reviews are written by the label or brain dead clones. another one bites the dust
Been waiting for years and this finally payed off. Well done Lupe. You got the mainstream mixing with the clever lyrics throughout the album. FNF up.

This album to me reflects mounting commercial pressures faced by Lupe Fiasco. Suddenly, the label decides he should be the next Bruno Mars? Lupe has some good moments on the cd, for sure. No where near the caliber of Food & Liquor or the Cool, though, sadly. The album is way over produced full of auto-tuned pop hooks. I'm not one to constrict the growth of an artist, but this album doesn't feel like expression of the artist. Instead, it feels quickly pieced together and forced. I waited a long time for this album to release. Especially since after it's recording, the label held in it some sort of weird limbo. It's unfortunate that someone with the potential of being a living legend is mixed up with this garbage. Although he is nowhere near as talented, you can see the same thing has happened to Wiz Khalifa. It'd be great if mainstream sales pressure would stop ruining my favorite artists.
