    I'd consider it a compilation, since 34 minutes is a bit long to be considered an EP.

    It's far from a complete work, but it's not really supposed to be. I can see why some of the tracks didn't make the cut, while others are FANTASTIC. The only track I truly dislike is untitled 07. It feels like a stiched together, directionless mess. However, I really, really love untitled 03, 05, and 06. Untitled 06 is probably my favorite. Having Cee Lo plus a flute line gives the song a very unique feel. My only gripe with untitled 03 is that it has a faster tempo than the Colbert performance, and doesn't have the fantastic ending that was on the broadcast. Still good though. I want to like untitled 08, but it feels very incomplete, especially considering the ending that was performed on Fallon is on untitled 2.

    Overally, I'd give it a 7/10. A decent collection, but a bit forgettable.

    Even as a bunch of cut tracks, it's still better than all the hip-hop that has come out this year. Yeah Kanye, I'm looking at you.

    8.5/10. Or rather, because I hate having decimals in my fractions, 17/20.

    EDIT: Also, correction on the original post. The track played on the Tonight Show is a mix of Untitled 2 and 8.
