Hard to pick one over the other, but if I had to chose I think I'd give an slight edge to The Minstrel Show. Both amazing albums, but The Listening dips a bit right before the end with Nobody But You and Home. Nighttime Marauders is dope, but not a strong enough comback after those two imho, but they finish on a real high with the title track. On The Minstrel Show, I feel like Phonte could've made a better hook on Slow It Down than Darien did + Hiding Place shouldn't be inbetween that Darien hook and Cheatin'. I like Cheatin as a funny little track/skit, but having Darien both before and then right after Hiding Place again wasn't a good idea imho.
So yeah - definitely a tought call, but I've listened to both in the past couple of days and I think I slightly prefer TMS.
