and kanye took this past hiphop..... this can be compared with albums of other genres....

this album really made people uncomfortable, like wearing a gq look instead of the usual bummy throwback look..

and i laugh at everyone talking about kanye's lyrics are better on college dropout... thats hillarious right there..

imo, if you dont like this album, you dont appreciate good taste in probably anything... like high class women, high class resturants, dramas and films with great acting like titantic, million dollar baby, etc, or good music in general...
Lol...that's a really good way to put it...

too many cats singing through the whole track, he really didnt give a solid three verses on a song ie "brethe in, breathe out" or he lets the beat breathe for to long between verses or at the end of song. Dont get me wrong, i give at good 3.5 because so many cd's have been garbage. just seems like he tried to change his production philoshphy to comne out with almost a new genre type of sound or in other words he thinks too many people are biting style and he wanted to experimen a lil bit. but with all that said 8 strong tracks give u a good cd in this stage of the game, i mean hov ain't droppin no time soon. It's no college dropout (which was an easy 5 mics) and definently not the cd of the year but its hot. ps: what happened to savin all the good beats for yourself! hottest 4: gone, crack music, drive slow, heard em say
listen to any radio head song

Garbage? The fu*k is you smokin' on...? Can't even call that an opinion...that's just not knowing music at all...
I'm a producer you stupid a.ss...and i made better sample sh*t with my playstation then this sh*t and when you sample its like havin half the beat done for you already...so what you can do is try it yourself and see it aint that hard....and by the way if you have to listen to a cd more then once to make it a classic it aint one...........but fu*k the dumb sh*t did anyone see him on that wild'n out show?......

Ive really been listening to this cd for the past few days and its really great if you don't compare it to College Dropout. And i think thats the problem, when u listen to it, u gotta listen without takin any other outings into consideration. If you do that and pretend this was his first CD that he was putting out, Kanye put out something fantastic. But.... because he did put out something as amazing as College Dropout and he tried going a little different for this outing it seems people are dissapointed. Yes ill admit I was a little dissapointed that there weren't any songs on here like Two Words and Get Em High, but looking at Late Registration on its own, Kanye created some magic. Thats why i give it a 5.

To sum it up, this is the best music I have heard since College Dropout. Roses, Celebration, Touch The Sky and the way he ended the album are tunes that can not be touched by any music that ANY new rapper has came out with lately.

Album of the year.

Im not knocking your opinion, but i think Kanye knew thats what people label him as, a sample producer. So if u notice he didn't do no sped up soul samples (chipmunk sounding stuff).The cat got a 20 piece orchrastra on some tracks yo. He up'd his drum sequencing game (example-Crack Music, he use a double drummer sequence, it sound like 2 drummers are doing they thing).And obviously he up'd his lyric game up a whole lot. A producer who can evolve his sound and be able to convey an advanced vision musically like he did on this album, man The album sound like a movie score yo!!! CLASSIC WORK

But if u can feel that-"IT WILL ALWAYS BE HATERS THATS THE WAY IT IS/HATER n*ggaZ MARRY HATER B**CHES AND HAVE HATER KIDS

A very good album from West... If there was a 4.5 mics option, i would've given it that. Very consistent also.

I took the advice of some on the board and put the cd on repeat. Cuz let me tell you I was thoroughly disappointed when i first heard and let down. Thinking he gave all the hot music to common. Well I listened and listened and listned. This cd is very very very good record. its an album. I think one of the posters liked it to a movie and another one said college dropout was an album full of hot singles this is a complete record. and it is. the production is hot and his lyrics and lyrical content has improved. he still needs to work on his rappy and how he spits but the way he wrote is really good this time. I must say there were some tracks I hated but after the fourth listen you see where he was going and truly understand it. I hated hey mamma i hated we major and i hated crack music. now I'm really starting to feel we major and the song and the hook and the lyrics and just the music. I still think game needs a verse maybe on a remix..but its possible his verse got pulled due to the beef that just got started with him and bleek so you never know. but this cd is awesome. I mean from front to back i could listen to it without skipping and then sometimes u just have to skip to get to your favorite tracks. I love that song with LUpe fiasco I love that drive slow song with paul wall that track is nuts. I mean the cd bangs the bass is there its not like down south music but the music is top notch and I have to agree it does need to be released as an instrumental to fully appreciate the music. now i voted a 5 for this album. not cuz its a classic cuz I truly don't feel it is. I think somethings should be different and switched up. but its a 5 cuz i highly recommend this album. Go buy it go support GOOD music.

I know some upset about Nas being on the album but you have to see the all eyes on me interview to understand his veiwpoint on having him drop a verse. and I agree i hope it leads to at least a song with Nas and Jigga on it...and in dreamland a Nas and Jigga LP or EP produced by Kanye/just blaze/ and primo...just dreaming though.

real quick problems with the album would be no Talib or Mos on the album...no full song with common and i would have a song with john legend on it. I would use Late as the intro track instead of a hidden...wrap it up with gone...put the diamonds oringal as a hidden with bittersweet. shorten we major just a lil bit. and thats it i even like the skits they are funny to me.

i just want to know why bittersweet isn't on here

Co-sign, seems like a lotta heads are sleepin on the bonus track Late--I think it's right up there with We Major and Heard 'Em Say. At this point, Diamonds would've definitely been the better hidden. Also, I can't figure out why The Game didn't spit on Crack Music--guess he's savin all his best verses for his next album.

Very good work. To me, it's not about being better or worse than the College Dropout album, it's not a follow-up CD. It's just pure Kanye, undiluted beats with somewhat contradicting lyrics that you can relate to or not, depending on your mood.

Kanye West is simply doing what he's good at : makeing good music while being himself. Props given to the thread starter. Peace

[/I]
a sped up voice is not the only sample he uses

the only thing he really did for "touch the sky" was added some drums to the first few bars *or stanza im not up on my music terminology haha* of "Move On Up"
the thing with kanye is he uses dope samples i love his work overall but he needs to step the sample department up somewhat the point of sampling is get the hot melody or break from a record and dress it up to fit your needs but not make it so damn obvious

on some of these songs hes jsut doing it the "diddy" way

this joint hard he did sumthin different that ppl won't exspectin instead of usin the sped up samples he just left them in thier original form. He also has better lyrics and the production is right. When u first listen to it you think bout college dropout and thats y it doesn't sound right at first, but after the second listen its a great album. I give it a 5/5.

this album has definitely been bumped every day since i got it.

at first i thought it was an alright cd, but after hearing it over a few more times, i thought it was damn near classic. the only thing i didnt like about the cd was that on that brandy track(bring me down) he used his verse from "whack n*ggas" and just added some lines here and there.

but overall, this cd topped my list for best album of the yr. i wished that "my way home" track had a verse by kanye to make it a complete song instead of like a 1-2 min verse. also, john legend on one of the hooks woulda been nice. but good thing he kept talib off this album, cuz his verse on college dropout wasnt good at all.
