Exactly what I was saying. Lyrically, it's not focused on a song-per-song basis. He's grown as a lyricist (i.e. witter wordplays, flows better, etc.), but his rhymes are a little aimless.

i did like his last verse on gorgeous....he has moments on here...just didn't put it all together for me...but the production on here is what's gonna push the album to most...

Didn't want to overreact to this since it's new s**t and all. Gave it a couple spins and it's good album...certainly not classic. The first 5 tracks are some of his best work ever. From there "Monster" is awful. Jay and Pusha did their thing on "So Appalled" but everyone else, including Kanye were of no consequence on that track.

"Devil in a New Dress" is a decent song but Rick Ross makes it dam near unlistenable. Kanye doesn't need all these average rappers on his s**t. Kanye himself is an above average rapper with something to say so I'd rather hear a verse from him...the features of some of them lames like Ross would have been better off being left off and replaced with a Kanye verse. Album finishes strong with "Runaway" straight on down to "Lost in the World".

And this a Kanye album so the amazing production is a given. Lyrically...Kanye isn't a great lyricist by any stretch but he has always had something to say and in most cases an average lyricist with something to say is better than a great lyricist with nothing to say. Same thing here. So all in all good album. And likely the hip hop album of the year.

blame game
so appalled


are the only songs I think are good. Everything else sound like some other off the wall s**t. When you are a superstar you can make off the wall s**t because people are gonna automatically like it because you are Kanye. But this just my opinion. Rap music has changed and I can admit going from the 90s-mid 2000s era that I am from, hearing disco,techno, and opera samples in hiphop is weird to me.

Best post I've read in a while. Disagree with the Kanye's "five best tracks ever" sentiment, though. Same goes for Devil In A New Dress; that song is

Apart from that, you're pretty much on point. Agree 100% with the "an average lyricist with something to say is better than a great lyricist with nothing to say."

Realest statement ever. Ever.

"Devil In A New Dress" "All Of The Lights" and "Blame Game" are the three best songs released this year. They are so far beyond anything being released right now. Say what you want about originality, features, whatever, compared to everything released by the industry nowadays these songs blow everyone else out of the water.

Don't even compare it to classic songs and albums from the last 30 years of hip hop, compare it to what's coming out today. Would you give this kind of hate to Talib Kweli if he made this album? Would you hate Mos Def for putting this album together? Absolutely not, n*ggas were swinging from Dante's sack when his last album came out calling it a classic, but Kanye uses Bon Iver's "Lost In The Woods" and he's an uncreative hack? What about Mos' "Roses" which was a Georgia Anne Muldrow song before and Mos just added a verse!?

Get your head out your a.ss and put your front on the coffee table for a second and just listen to this. At the very least enjoy some of the best crafted music released this decade. People s**t on him for putting out free music because it ruins the album, people s**t on him for putting Ross on the record, people s**t on him for anything and everything regarding this album BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY HE MADE IT HAPPEN.

Cudi pushes the envelope even further. To me, Ye keeps it more "rap" than Cudi, but Cudi has an ear for artistic direction and production. He blends obscure sounds meticulously and creates an atmosphere in his albums like no one else in the industry.

'Ye and Cudi are a good match; they both have similar styles, but Ye's just a more capable cat on the boards.

IMO, the three artists in rap who are trying to push the genre further are Kanye, Kid Cudi and Drake. Yeah, hate on the last guy, but like it or not, So Far Gone was "different" and he pulled it off with cohesion and bravado.

EDIT: Mos experiments a lot (case in point: New Danger, The Ecstatic), but he doesn't pump out enough material to really be considered an advocate of alternative rap.

Completely agree, copped Cudi's MOTM2 this Tuesday and THAT was some of the best music released this year before I heard the dirty of this album. I agree with Kanye, Cudi and Drake being the most progressive in the hip hop community, all of them aren't limited in their range and it makes for great, fearless music. :agreement6:

After I first full listen this album the album is okay."Runaway" is easily the best track on this album.Definetly not a classic .It's not even the best album to drop this year.I put it on the same level as Graduation,which we all know is not a classic album.
