Jay-Z  had a listening session for the album last night.  Complex has posted a compilation of the reviews.  You can check out the articles and a summary below.

From Complex:

Our very own Editor-In-Chief, Noah Callahan-Bever—who was there as a portion of the album was created—took to Twitter and tweeted a ton of inside info on the project. [@N_C_B]

GQ Editor Sean Fennessey has a comprehensive writeup of the event—less than 20 people were there, Jay-Z was extremely charismatic, and one journalist got kicked out for attempting to live-Tweet the whole thing. [GQ]

The most in-depth review of the event came from Rolling Stone. They give a play-by-play of each track that has us unreasonably excited to hear the final product, which is coming “soon,” according to Jay-Z. [Rolling Stone]

Entertainment Weekly weighed in after the event, declaring Watch The Throne a “masterpiece.” They also add some song titles to the tracklist and offer some background on the creation of the album. [Entertainment Weekly]

MTV reports that the event took place in a hotel suite that had been converted to a recording studio, Beyonce and Frank Ocean have the only guest spots [MTV]

Billboard says that what Jay played last night is definitely not a final tracklist, but that Watch The Throne will not be as heavy and operatic as “H.A.M.,” which might not make the final cut. [Billboard]
