this album is going to be fu*king terrible. ive yet to hear one keeper out of the 10 or so ive heard. anyone thinks its gonna be a classic or anything remotely resembling his past work needs to suicide.

theres no coming back from this, hes alienated his original fanbase by turning into a pop star. and he doesn't have a single. this album flopping would be the best thing to ever happen to him and his fans.
okay now that i have the album...i couldnt be anymore correct. the best way to describe this album is "comfortable". and thats by far the worst thing that can happen to a musician.

My short review:
The amazing minimalistic and constantly progressing production creates a perfectly coherent sound, which holds together the clear concept of this album. The multi-faceted and catchy melodious patterns ensure a sonic diversity and provide for a high replay value.
I also find the auto-tune and voice effects are not the least bit bothersome, since they only add to the overall atmosphere. A possible weak-point can be seen in the lyrical simplicity, but the album's intention is geared towards danceability and easy-listening anyway so that argument is rather negligible.
It is in no shape or form a hip-hop album and thus is not to be approached that way. Underneath its unorthodox shell however there is actually quite an outstanding piece of music that should not be dismissed too easily.

I've listened to the whole record twice now and with the exception of some of the production the album is a complete dissapointment. He better follow up with "Good a.ss Job" soon because this is something that even the true Ye fans aren't even listening to. I mean much respect to Ye for being ballsy enough to do the album but hopefully we never have to hear this again from ye. Thats my honest opinion.

P.S. - Thank you T-Pain for single handedly k!lling music as we know it! Thank You. a**hole!

Threadstarter lost.


I guess people dont like to understand that this cd wasnt ment to be like anything kanye has ever made. When you think about it, all of Kanyes cds have a different style to them.

You know this is a Heartbreak cd, thats why every song is about love. True Kanye fans will listen to it. Its the people who dont like listening to artists whenever they switch their style up that wont listen to it. Why try to hate? Maybe kanye was tired of raping and wanted to sing?

and T-Pain didnt k!ll music, its the dumb fu*ks who try to steal his style and sound terrible doing it. " Why you wanna do some sh*t i did in 03!" His new cd is a great cd, he shows all the doubters, haters, and nay sayers that he doesnt need to sing, he can murder a track by rapping and blow you away with the speed he can spit. That T-pain and Twista song is off the fu*kin chain, that was a few years ago, and again.. Pain was showin his ability to blow you the fu*k away

some of tha replies would be on point if kanye was actually a decent singer ...but dude sounds like a horrible t-pain knock-off, i dunno who uses tha machine worse between him and wayne...stans will definitely love this album, but us fans understand when one of our favorite rappers misses tha boat and 'ye definitely struck out this time...

"heartless" > anything on that p.o.s. album

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".
Emo is depressing music and yea it does sound like that, its basically emo music with better beats. This is a lot like a Bright eyes or Connor Oberest CD (for those that like it you should check out their CDS) you will love them. PM me if needed.

Thats exactly what im saying thank you! This fool think he can sing. Ok so he tried something different. DIFFERENT DOESNT MAKE IT GOOD!!. Heartless is the ONLY stand out track on that album. So for all of you saying "its different, it wasnt meant to be rap, it wasnt meant to be this, it wasnt meant to be that" I want you to rember that Kanye West has NO VOCAL ABILITY WHAT SO EVER!. He is a rapper and a producer and the more you feed his ego the more he thinks he can do whatever he wants! Whats next? Kanye West Sings Opera? Its different so it would be great right? All of you except one missed my point or have no ear for music what so ever.

It has nothing to do with T Pain. I respect T Pain for what he's done and what he continues to do. He is doing his thing, makin hit records, and makin money. Thats what its all about. As for everyone else thats trying to do the exact same thing he's doing, now thats a different story. They are trying so hard to do something that doesn't come natural to them and they are soundin like a.ss. I actually like the Kanye album, all im sayin is dont blame T Pain for other people maknig bad music
