Album is a.ss....I have nothin against him making music other than straight hip-hop, but that auto-tuner sh*t is played out and dude has it on every single track. .
Yes, that's called 'concept' - ever heard of it?

The album is called 808s & Heartbreak for a reason.

--------------

808

West insisted that each track had to feature TR-808-generated drumming. "No typical hip-hop beats. They've gotta be tribal drums." West felt that the 808 is an important instrument that can be used to evoke emotion.

Heartbreak

It was revealed that the occasional exaggerated effects produced by Auto-Tune are meant to represent the effect of being heartbroken.

--------------

KanYe's latest just shows how smart he actually is as a musician AND a person. You need to open up your mind a little bit if you think this is sh*t.

This here is for the eclectic listener if you not one with an open-ear (like most on bX) then no ones making you listen...as for the review 4/5 easily creativity, with an utmost reality in making music from the heart which is what i expect from kanye..doesnt get a 5 cuz i know Ye can make a better hip hop album but as for this pop art concept thing hes on he stepped in done his thing done quite good and hopefully will return with a good a.ss job.

i will change Robocop and Welcome to Heartbreak with the originals. The Herbie Hancock version? C'mon, he was just scared cause it sounded to much like the song he sampled from.

WTF are yall n*ggas listening to? This n*gga Kanye is biting off of T-Pain's style! This auto-tune voice sh*t is getting way out of hand! T-Pain, Weezy, now this n*gga! People talkin about this sh*t being a classic because he is doing somethin different, WTF are yall hearing? His production on this CD is straight GARBAGE, his fake a.ss singing is GARBAGE, and if a lesser know artist, rap artist for that matter, were to have made this same CD yall would think it was straight Trash! A piece of advice to all of you who said you like this CD, k!ll YOSELF!

AND MAKE SURE YALL PICK UP THAT SCARFACE(EMERITUS) WHEN IT COMES OUT NEXT MONTH!

Best CD of the year by far. Musically its just on another level. If you don't come into it expecting a rap CD you'll get much more out of it. I do agree though that the original version of Welcome to Heartbreak is much better than the album version. Does anyone have a copy of the old version without the "LA Leakers" tag?

Robocop is one of the worst songs ever made this year[,I place that next to Marco Polo and for that reason... Kanye should retire his whole career for even releasing such sh*t.

I gave it a 3. Only cause I can relate to some of the stuff he's talking about. But compared to his other albums this doesn't compete. I feel I kinda ruined this album by listening to all the leaked tracks. ohh well there is always next go around.

people forget that Kayne is a producer first and rapper second. The album is a whole lot better than the unmastered tracks that leaked. Crisp sounding, 808's banging, lyrics are whatever, but over all 4/5.

He will go X platinum on the Pop Charts

Reminds me of earlier NERD albums

I liked the original version of Robocop, this version is uber gay

real talk..


You have to erase anything you know about Kanye West and approach the album from a mindset of expression and musical art.

It has nothing to do with hip hop.

If you ain't feeling it, its simply not for you.

5.5/5

I can see if you are really depressed you will think this album is 5 MICS. I like it though, cause it has a positive vibe to it, so I gave it a 4. I'm getting sick of hearing rappers say there gonna k!ll one another.

Then he might aswell have just called it '808s'.

The auto-tune is supposed to represent 'heartbreak' - hence why the 808s and autotune are used in every song.

If you are expecting a typical Kanye West hip hop album you will be disappointed. Severely. I think people who are rating it bad is because they know its Kanye. If it was some random generic newcomer who was not Kanye and released this as a pop or alternative cd i think people would be feeling it more. I think its around a 3.5 for me. Autotune occasionally is good but it gets too repetitive for a whole cd for me imo.

Can somebody up these original versions of the songs you were talking about? I didn't fu*k with none of those advances so I didn't hear any different versions. But I like Welcome, so if yall say the original is better, I wanna hear it. Same for Robocop.

this is the worst "music" album ever...

i'm sorry but this it also the gayest ever to be released...

this is music for f*g**ts who listen to Coldplay and other f*g**tery...

no, this is a disgrace even to call it gay...it's beyond...

concept my a.ss...what kind of man would want to listen to this??? baffles me!



1/5 for trying to be differen, but that's all this loser is trying to do come to think of it...and it ain't even different!

0/5 that's more like it

fag**t
