I'd like some 100% unbiased opinions on what review is more realistic. Pitchfork VS Fantano.
somewhere in the middle.

fantano was staying strictly on the songs while pitchfork was adding outside stuff to their review. i don't know if they always do that because i never read their reviews but that is what i read

i don't know why reviewers hold that much weight with any of y'all

I dont think i've EVER seen a n*gga ether himself more than that knick fan did just now...







well duh, he's a knick fan fu*k was i thinking ...get that n*gga some depends, he sh*tted on himself
lol @ this f*ggot a.ss n*gga bringing the Knicks into this

pitiful

and I will take the L here simply for the fact that I did not even know that Nina Simone cover even existed (definitely should have)...that's all it is a COVER, he sampled a Cover, that is a Billie Holiday song written by some white folks way before Nina Simone, that sh*t is from the 30s

But I wouldn't expect you dumbasses to know that

I have no idea what you're trying to accomplish here. I take it you misunderstood something I said. What I gather from the quote collage you built, is... I said I don't use reviews to justify my own opinion, and then I cosigned The Needledrop review. I also said, I agree with what he said (not the rating), and that I liked the record. So, if I say I don't take reviews that seriously (because I prefer to judge things on my own), Im not aloud to ever agree with a review now ? How's that work ..?

Secondly, I asked you why you were directing posts at people without saying names, and then I did the same. Difference is, the people who I directed MY post at posted in THIS thread. No need to say names, because they know who they are. Whether its the misunderstanding (that I hopefully cleared up for us), or my lack of sleep, I still don't know what you were trying to say. After observing the "great debate" between you and Retro yesterday, Im under the impression you like to argue. If you got a problem, or can't understand where I was coming from in a particular post, ask for clarification, rather then foaming at the mouth to try and embarrass somebody. If this this cleared things up, hit me with a and enjoy the rest of the day. If it didnt, and you want to reply like a smartass again, miss me wit it...
@swag guy
Which is weird for dude to be honest. SnR Rico was chill as fu*k, dude always seems angry when he's in the HHS tho. No shade just an observation...

He substantiated all of his opinions. That's a lot more than some of these unintelligible BX posters have done with theirs. You don't have to agree with a review to respect it; I think Fantano did a stellar job in peeling back the album's layers. I don't need his review to validate my views on Yeezus - why would I? It just so happens I agree with the majority of the points raised.

How can an album devoid of any salvageable, meaningful lyrics (an important component of rap music!) score a 9 or 10 is beyond me. Do you guys enjoy listening to basic ramblings? Kanye almost says nothing of worth or value in most of the songs, but yet we give him a pass and chastise people like Wayne for doing the same thing.

It makes no sense.

This has been my biggest, biggest issue with the album.

It's kind of funny if Wayne was to do the exact same thing (he already has the lyrics component downpart) what people would say.

Expecting this...he gave MBDTF a 6/10 and i didn't think he was going to give Yeezus a higher rating than that album.

Needle Drop is getting too much hate...his rap reviews i don't agree with half the time but his reviews when it comes to other genres aren't bad imo.

Most definitely, it's tough to NOT respect someone's opinion when it's as thoroughly thought out and well presented as Anthony's was in this video. He made great points without completely bashing the piece at hand.

I agree with your comments regarding Wayne as well. The glaring difference between Wayne and Kanye is how it's packaged. Everything Kanye does is done so under the guise of being innovative, on " another level ", intelligent; the soundscape plays a part in how people digest it as well.

Just my 2 cents.
