5 boxes period. Beats are still on point, just not as many radio friendly tracks. His flow is much tighter, and his lyrics are much better.

yo, im actually likin this better than college dropout.. im sorry, but this sh*t is so raw.

college dropout got so corny after u listened to it.. the replay value was weak.. the choruses and the beats were fire and kanye was ok.. but now he rele showed some growth.. better rhymes, that are complimented by his beats.. and not the other way around like with College Dropout.. dnt get me wrong i still liked that sh*t, but this disc is too raw.. im luvin it...

also i didnt hav high expectations for this either.. so maybe thats why im pleasantly surprised...

Yea yea, so I finally finished my first go though. I really can't give a number grade to this one cuz I need to speak on this.

For one, I think this album has the hottest production a hip-hop album could ever have, but at the same time I think that's one of the drawbacks. There's TOO MUCH going on in all the tracks, and it takes away from what Kanye is trying to say. I guess he chose to focus on his positives (admit it, his ryhmes are not what got him in the game today). With a lot of listens it'll probably come through, but I dunno if hip hop heads will give it that many spins to give it a chance.

As a whole, this is probably the most experimental mainstream hip hop joint since The Love Below, and because of that I can see it getting a lot of hate. Not saying Kanye went R&B on a n*gga, but almost all the songs break the traditional hip hop/rap theme, and almost give the album a movie feel. Not really a joint you can bump in the ride in the hood, but more of something you sit down and kick back to, or you cruise the freeway with.

Compared to his first joint, I think Late Registration lacks the diversity College Dropout had. Dropout had hood tracks, had introspective tracks, had crusin tracks, had club joints. I don't really hear all that on this one, but I think this is more cohesive as a result. A real ALBUM and not a CD full of singles.

All that said, it ain't perfect. Skits were more balanced this time, but way unnecessary. Ditch the skits next time Kanye. IMO he coulda kept Hey Mama in the vault. Even redoing the beat didn't make me like it. And Heard 'Em Say is a lil suspect, too soft to kick off a CD with.

After writing all that I guess I can give it a number grade after all. 4/5, but I'm feelin more like 4.5/5 but I don't wanna round up. If any album needed an instrumental LP release, it's this one.

4 mics, definitely not classic 5 mic material. It seems like Kanye put more into Common's album than his own. Will have to give it a couple more listens.
