I have no idea what Kanye is thinking, get off T-pains d*ck, who is straight wack. There's like three or 4 good tracks or that I can actually listen to. Kanye made an R&B Cd whoever calls this hip-hop is smoking crack.

Andre 3000 Love Below>>>>>>Ye 808's and Heartbreak

Im not hating i don't have a problem with rappers branching off cuz i bump foreign exchange and love below.My problem with this cd is that the songs are not good and the Auto tune makes it worst.He's not a good singer and with the autotune u just need to be a decent singer to sound good (Tpain).I went into this cd with hate cuz of the leak tracks sounding like garbage but I still listen to the whole cd open minded key word "whole" cd so i can give a honest opinion about this and i still don't like it.

I have to be honest.

I feel Kanye's emotion and where he's coming from. But do you know how many other artists put all their emotion into their music? That argument alone cannot defend this album's flaws (or what I feel to be flaws). Can you honestly tell me the production on here is good? I understand that he was sticking with the 808 machine through this as well as the autotune. Can you call that a concept? I suppose. Does that make it good? Not necessarily.

And to get this out of the way, please stop using the argument that people who aren't feeling this are trapped in a box and refuse to expand their musical tastes. I listen to many genres, to at least give them a chance, as I'm sure many others on here do.

If I just listen to the message I really feel where he's coming from. I understand that he has to use the autotune in order for him to make the vocal delivery that he wanted. But this is far from mindblowing. There are many eclectic artists out there, but I'm guessing that the majority of you defending this album don't give those guys a chance. This is something different to you so its fresh, and because its out the box you a.ssume that is the reason people don't like it. We all knew what to expect from this, and it wasn't a rap album. For what he was trying to accomplish I don't think the execution was great. Actually, I think the whole concept to begin with is flawed and would've been difficult to pull off masterfully.

I do like some tracks on here. Say You Will, Welcome To Heartbreak, Amazing, Love Lockdown (first hearing this led me to believe this album had the potential to be great), Paranoid, Street Lights, Coldest Winter.

Yes, that is more than half of the tracks of the album. With that said I like these songs to some degree, in that they are tolerable. By no means is this album bad, I'd say its a decent album. But calling this a classic? That is a REACH to me. People are really making parallels to The Love Below? That is doing a GREAT injustice to Dre's album. I don't think the two are even close in quality. The songs that I "like" on here are catchy. But some of the lyrics/vocals on here are not good.

I will probably let this ride in the whip a couple more times; maybe my headphone impressions aren't giving this album the proper chance. I will say that this is not a bad album. I'm just reading wayyyyyyyyyy too much d*ckriding of this album. Kanye has a lot of fans, especially on here, and I think you will like anything he does. I was a HUGE Kanye fan before College Dropout. The mixtapes, the singles he was producing for other people - crack. After Late Registration he went downhill to me. Graduation was lukewarm, and this is nothing great. I normally wouldn't type up an essay on an album if I really wasn't feeling it, but as a Kanye FAN I feel I had to do this, especially since my opinion obviously differs from those of a lot of you on here. If you take offense in being called a d*ckrider, then this whole essay is likely directed to you. Sorry, but those are just my thoughts.

As for album of the year, this year in general has been weak for hip-hop so I can see why some of you are riding this so hard. There really hasn't been a whole lot to be excited about I guess, at least not for me. Two albums that are far superior to this to me though are Rising Down and The Renaissance. If I need to name the artists of those albums then I guess you are like these other cats who you are called close-minded.

P.S. Holy sh*t that is a long read, sorry
agree 100% with your point if u really want to be real let lil wayne make this same album same lyrics same beats and auto tune level he would be even more of a joke to yall on bx.But since Ye do it it's a classic people throw that classic word around to much in the last 5 years it hasn't been to many classic cd's drop.Yall might thought it was best thing ever when it first came out but when is the last time u put that so called classic in your cd changer.This Album is a 3 at best

I gave it a 4/5

I think auto tune is very annoying but I understand the art direction and vision. the lyrics are great, I love the 808's, and the overall feel of the album is euphoric. I don't listen to much rap music so this is right down my alley.

say you will

coldest winter

my top 3 on the album

Its not R&B, its pop. And Kanye's thinking he wants to make a pop album, and he did, and it came out as pop. What are you on about?

Kanye is a genious! this album isnt about him singing or it isnt about him not rapping! its clearly a process when of a artist to try something totally different. he was forced by his interactions and thoughts to create this masterpiece! now this is like less than a months work and it sounds great! clearly the best production since graduation last year! this dude isnt letting people down at all! some artist have to be weird and some have to only be normal! i think him, cee lo green, lupe fiasco, andre 3000, all share a common of creating weird music and it sounds great! i miss the old days of pharrell music! that first N.E.R.D cd! it kinda started that weird music and its translated into what should have its on Genre! Pharrell lemme down by making his music simplier! i like the confusing what are u singing about pharrell! Kanye Brought that vibe back for me! He didnt even abuse the Auto Tune! T pain abuses it alot! kanye blended it into his vocals and it made him sound great!

what are u talking about?? Nelly Furtado's Loose was a good album. Hell Brittney's Black Album was decently good and none of these are rap albums. This is straight trash.

"Amazing" was the only good track on the album and that was only because of Young Jeezy's part.
