New Nicki MInaj album, best thing ever?

Nicki Minaj came out with her second studio album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. This album is great from start to finish. From the song she scared us all with at the Grammy's, "Roman Holiday" to the Rihannaesque ballad "Marilyn Monroe" to the future gangsta rap classic "Beez in the Trap," there are no bad songs on this record.
After her single "Starships" was released in February fans have been crying sellout but since it's been tearing up the charts, Minaj could have a huge album on her hands.
Like "Starships," most of the record has a dance-pop vibe. Her club songs sound like Lil' Kim covering Jessie J... and that isn't a bad thing. The album is a fun summer record that will have anybody singing along. While some of the songs can be a bit rediculous, they're all still enjoyable. "South Africa is where I come from. Give me my banjo, give me my drum," Minaj raps in the beginning of her song "Beautiful Sinner." While sometimes her choices are weird, she is still successful at putting out a quality album. This album will have us all dancing for years to come. While Reloaded is not an instant hip hop classic, the album has Minaj going in the right, crazy direction and I for one am ready to follow.
