I'm loving this album, but I don't think it's on par with his last two.

album of the year no doubt. i give it a 4.8/5. not as good as college dropout. a slight notch over LR. from top to bottom theres solid, if not amazing tracks.
least fav. song: drunk and hot girls
most fav. song: flashing lights or everything i am

1. good morning - sets the mood just right for this emo-ish album.
2. champion - crazy sample. crazy beat.
3. stronger - crazy sample. crazy beat. shows he's waaaay ahead of the game.
4. i wonder - absolutely love that first part. it'll stay stuck in the head. then the beat and his "rapping" comes out. or whatever he's trying to do with it.
5. goodlife - feel good music. kanye really isnt as great as he thinks as a lyricist. has some cool lines here and there(and throughout the album), but he needs to clean it up a bit.
6. cant tell me nothing - a soulful south beat. only kanye can do.
7. barry bonds - "life of a don, lights keep glowin', comin' in the club with that fresh sh*t on, with somethin' crazy on my arm.. ahahahhem". Ye is a good songwriter/producer, but then again his lyrics and flow are kinda off. "bow so hard, till yur knees hit yur forehead"??
8. drunk and hot girls - wtf? this sounds like eminem should be ripping this track or some sh*t. and you wasted mos def on this too.
9. flashing lights - best song on the album. beat is ridiculous. best chorus on the album. kanye comes as good as he might ever come.
10. everything i am - best song 2. too soulful. common on this would've been pretty dope. laid back as this beat was. classic.
11. the glory - kanye seems to make alot of these typa beats. still THE best production out, easily. still, kanye hardly shines.
12. homecoming - should've been on john legends album and had him on it the whole song instead of kanye spitting on it.
13. big brother - on jay's d*ck heavily. but as a song to give props to your idol, theres not alot better. beat is pretty emotional.

he needs to have more features so we dont gotta hear him as much. he never bullsh*ts when he spits, but theres something about him rapping that turns me down off some of the songs. i dont think he will ever be top 5 lyrically dead OR alive, but maybe he can step it up a bit.
his production is already known as the best. i consider him at the top of the list. i cant ever put anyone ahead of dre cuz he was a pioneer, but i think he might be ahead of primo at this point. based on hits and how soulful every beat is. overall, 4.8/5.

I give it a 4. the lyrics and flow are average, his production sure makes up for that though. a couple really catchy tracks like the Mos Def collab + I wonder.... the songs which keep it from a 4.5 are The Glory (annoying sample) + dat wack T-Pain track..... best album of the year so far I hope it sells more than Curtis.

Album grows on me every listen. From a rap perspective this album lacks, but just enjoying it for the music its right. Only complaints are T-Pain instead of John Legend? Lil' Wayne and a non-rapping Mos Def instead of Com, Talib, Jay, Nas? Homecoming was alright but if you've heard Home then that joint is a let down in comparison. This album has so many standout songs that I'll feel a different song the most after each listen. I don't know whether I can put this above Talib's album, but its up there, perhaps co-album of the year for me

4.5/5

Great CD, superior to Late Registration but not quite College Dropout.

Its good music it is just a short a.ss album. Come one you know he could have 2 more dope tracks on this and it would have been a classic. This album does have some good tracks and I can see his growth I just think I want to hear a little more. He slowed down the tracks and brought the piano towards the end of the album.

Too say the least the album is good I just feel like its missing that extra track. I give it a 4/5. Better than curtis

co-fu*king sign took the words out of my mouth i think as a lyricist kanye just doesnt have it but as a producer it aint get sicker than Ye.

i was disappointed with the album. he stay on the same tip with all his sh*t. the production is nice. but he slowed his flow down. and his bars. i've seen kanye freestyle harder than most these bars on this cd. but i still give it a 2/5

amazing. couldnt have asked for anything more. im declaring classic without the hype being a part of my judgment. I will be banging all of these tracks well into the future.
yea man. definately. very progressive and revolutionary production and lyric spacing, noticable on "Everything I Am".

im definately going to buy this, it will be a classic.

everything on it is just fresh and new, no recycled beats, samples, and drums. College Dropout was a great album, but artistically this album is 1000x better.

Kanye should have had Talib Common, or Mos Def on "Barry Bonds". I know BX heads love this motherfu*ker, but I fu*kin HATE Lil Wayne. He is horrible. Especially on "Barry Bonds". I want to fu*kin send him back to grade school so he can spit a fluid, coherrent bar. He barely even rhymes his sh*t either. He ruined the song, everytime I listen to that song, I skip to the next when Lil Weezle's verse is about to come on. The only thing good that came out of his tiny weasel mouth was the chorus, which was written by Kanye.

To those saying Kanye's flow is off, its done on purpose.
It has to do with syllable and rhyme placement.

He accents weird syllables too. Thats what makes this album genius. Anyone can spit a fluid bar, even Lil Wayne, but for artistic reasons, they don't. If you want fluid bar perfection, listen to Nas. This album is way ahead of its time and progressive in terms of lyricism, thats why people are accusing Kanye of being a weak lyricist right now.

Eminem does the same thing too. Eminem accents weird syllables in different words to make it rhyme and flow well. Thats what makes guys like that good lyricists.. Innovation.

Anyone can say "Yo, I bought a hat/Ima shoot my gat/Then Ima pet my cat.".. flows well, bars are on point.. but I could say that sh*t when I was in kindergarten.

been gettin more and more into it...

my initial 2/5 def bumped up already...
u really gotta just listen to this thoroughly...

and "drunk and hot girls" is a dope track and prolly the most original song you'll hear this year..very bold choice though

i can sit through the entire album without wanting to skip or none...and by the end i wanna hear it again...it def sh*ts on Curtis in every way possible

so, this now is at least 4/5 and without a doubt a very good release once again from Kanye...

u gotta give it to Ye for makin an album that really stands on it's own ya know...can't be compared to none else...not even his first two...sound-wise this really is top-notch...it is what it is...
