did with me - and I DO put it up there with some of his best music. In fact I personally have it in his top 5 albums, with Reasonable Doubt and Blueprint being clearly ahead of it, and then some order of American Gangster, Black Album, and 4:44 at 3 through 5. The order changes for me depending on the day. But 4:44 has ZERO skips for me. It's an album I listen to from front to back relatively often. Black Album and American Gangster probably have higher highs - but both those records have several tracks that I skip (Change Clothes, Justify My Thug, Hello Brooklyn, Blue Magic, etc.)
Again as I keep saying - 4:44 doesn't have as broad of an appeal as some of his earlier work where he was going for HITS. But I personally have it higher than some of his huge albums like Volume 2 and Volume 3.
