Jay-Z scores his 10th No. 1 album on The Billboard 200, as "American Gangster" (Def Jam) debuts on top this week after selling 425,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The rapper thus ties Elvis Presley in second place for the most No. 1 albums on the chart; only the Beatles have had more, with 19

In my opinion, Kanye caught a brick with this one. Some of the tracks would've been alright if Usher or someone sang them without auto tune, but if you're not Roger Troutman (who could actually sing without the computer a.ssistance) stay away from that bullsh*t. I appreciate that dude tried to make a concept album..something that is very hard to pull off properly, but I don't think I'll ever listen to this album again after the first couple "feeling out" listens.

I dont see how people are on here acting like this album is something different or some amazing sh*t. I mean I like the beats, and the concepts and lyrics are decent, BUT come on. Even wit the robot thingy Ye sounds horrible. TPain is a better writer when it comes to this kind of stuff easy, Andre 3000 is way more creative and can sing decent without auto tune. So you cant compare the two. at cats saying this is album of the year, I guess he only made it since he figures he has no chance at winning album of the year rapping. Im not a Ye hater cause he had 3 classics until he had to go mess it up.

This album sucks, and it doesn't suck because it's not a rap album, it doesn't suck because it's a pop album, it sucks because the production is boring, the lyrics are run of the mill, and that auto-tune effect starts getting annoying even throughout one song, a whole album of it is just stupid.

he fu*kt up it for himself by changing the only song that could have been a classic song to some bullsh*t..

once again.... welcome to heartbreak is ruined now... the old beat was sick..

the 1e song... say you will .... the beat is sick... etc... but half of the song is instrumental... its cool if you let the beat ride for a minute... but it rides 2 long..

Heartless is DOPE... got nothing bad to say about that joint... song is DOPE as fu*k

love lockdown grew on me.... now i think the song is nice

the song with wayne is dope.... see you in my nightmare ... beat is sick hook is dope

song with jeezy(AMAZIN) is cool... thats the perfect word for it... its cool... nothing GREAT nothing wack

streetlights is a good song for what it is... he repeats the hook 2 much tho...

Robocop the 1e version was pretty wack.... the new version is even worst..
the syntz etc doesnt fit.. its 2 BUSY !!!...

coldest winter... is muaw... he could have made this alot better... it lacks

Paranoid.... the beginning of the beat(song) is sick.... but i think the part when the other cat starts singin sounds 2 pop..
but overall its a aight song

Bad news is aight...

if the Good Welcome to heartbreak was on it... i would give the album
4 outa 5

but now hez gonna lose a whole point

so i give it a 3 outa 5 now

The beats are top notch amazing but the singing just isnt for me, couldnt he have just rapped on it would it have been that hard? Oh well i guess next summer hell come with what everyone wants. I will say this tho Welcome to Heartbreak and Amazin are dope songs.

QUESTION REGARDING THE GROUPRIP IN THE JUKEBOX:

Is that supposed to be the FINAL version of the album, cuz the cuss words are scratched out? (for example in See You In My Nightmares, Weezy's "sh*t") :banghead: Or since it's a "love" related album, all the cussing is PURPOSELY scratched...

This feels more like a pop album to me but with some amazing beats as Kanye usually delivers on the production front.

I say pop because I don't know what other genre it could possibly be. Kanye was always an average MC with something say which is usually better than a good MC with nothing to say. But lyrically he took a step down on this one.

Anyway type of album your girl would love. No cursing....simplistic lyrics and hot beats.

But as a hip hop head...you would classify this as a guilty pleasure b/c its actually a pretty good album if you don't think too much while listening. You know just let it in one ear and out the other. sh*t is hot.

I have no idea what Emo is supposed to sound like, but my boy's wife listens to that sh*t. He says this album is "Emo with 808s".
