Now that video of the guy gets posted of a guy who kinda sorta isn't feeling the album, now we are back to paying attention to what reviewers are saying

gotta love BX


Moral:

Reviews are only relevant when they agree with your sentiments



That's why I been said, if the critics (who actually matter) were panning the album, the n*ggas in here talking bout "bu.. bu.. But reviews dont matter"

would be singing a whole different song

Yeezus has been getting very good positive reviews so far. For me on my first couple quick listens through the album I was disappointed and gave it a 6/10. After listening to it more in my car while driving the album has grown on me and I'd now rate it as a 8/10.

Kanye does wild sh*t and people say it's "creative". It's really not all that creative(this album, some of his previous work is genius) it's just not standard hip-hop. If a n*gga rap on a country beat it doesn't make it creative it's just a n*gga rapping on a country beat.

Do people actually use critic ratings as a gauge for if the album is good or not?

These critics (print and digital) are all paid off anyways.

As someone else says, your own ears determine if you like the album or not.

How many of you are forcing yourself to like it because of what critics are saying? I guess on the flip side, how many of you are hating it just to go against the trend?

I hate the era we live in that people have to ride so hard one way or another. You like the album? Good, listen as much as you want. Don't like it? Don't go trying to spread your word as gospel.

You make an album that sounds like Yeezus then if it is so defined in your opinion

Your bi*ch a.ss, with the biggest understatement of the year.

pitchfork is really no good when it comes to reviews, this is a clear overrated issue here. i dont see kanye that talented, i mean most of his music is him name dropping designer names and dissing people. this album is an acquired taste because he tried his hardest to make an anti pop rap record... and this does ring true. hes a pop rapper though... not a good album.

Hell Nall. All these magazines with this white editors are giving this a high rating. This broken TV, 90s Nintendo sounding album is not that great!

This dude catches my thoughts on the album perfectly.
Same here. Nov 05 bx in the place

The Pitchfork reviewer seemed to get caught up in the overall environment around the release, but at its core the music is subpar. The Needle Drop gets into that pretty good. It is a far more in depth review and goes into incredible detail about why each track on Yeezus falls flat.

And where the Pitchfork reviewer doesn't bring up previous releases and rap artists, The Needle Drop does, dissecting each element of the music, why some things work, but most things don't.

But he did say the beats were death Grips inspired. But nah, death Grips fu*king hits. Ye's sh*t was like death Grips watered down with a firehose.

This is a sh*t album. Anybody who thinks there can't be a solid review of this cd that is negative needs to watch this review.

Great review, and I echo many of the things he said. I have my own criticisms but I'm glad someone went into detail to explain many of the problems with this album. I hope Kanye comes with that fire next time. Yeezus isn't good.

No reviewer is perfect. I think it is best to focus on the merits of each review. Focusing on the reviewer is pointless. They may do a better or worse job on reviews.

But my n*gga, the beats/samples he used on his album were very nice


I think that's why they gave it a good rating because his lyrics were sh*t
