Not sure what to think of this album. There are some good tracks but I don't see why everyone rates it as highly as they have.

Listened to this album a lot more, it's gotta be one of the best I've listened to in quite a while.

Probably not her.




AHAHAHA.


Yea, I'm really not a fan of Ms. Nicki.


However, I'm LOVING this cd! I usually find Kanye just... lame. This CD, while his lyrics aren't as witty as Eminem or Lil Wayne, I think the music + production blows both out of the water. Loving them. On the other hand, I'm not really liking blame game... Nor the 2nd one. LOVE all of the others.. I think. Monster is kinda wack. Runaway is very good imo, as is Hell of a Life, Devil in a New Dress, So appalled, Power, and Dark Fantasy. (Save that small section where Kanye says "toysssss". Nails on a chalkboard.)


edit: ok so I've been listening to Blame Game... I love the skit at the end. Hilarious.


Yeeezy taught me. :XD:

I hate to ruin the parade in this thread, but can someone explain to me how this is different to every other rap album? Sounds pretty normal to me.

I know this will come off as a lazy reply, but basically read this review (which everyone should read anyway because it's very well written and badass okay). I'm no good with words and describing music - but basically, from a technical standpoint, every song has a million things going on in it at the same time, elements coming and going for different parts of the song. Not just the sampled piano/synth line/drum beat/vocal bits like people would expect, but choruses, orchestral flourishes, distorted basslines, and the comically large number of guest appearances, all of whom make stellar performances. And that's not even going into all the themes, the ridiculous number of genius verses, blahdiblah. I'm really no connoisseur of rap music, but as a music lover it's a [bleep]ing fantastic album.

Listen to Power and just pay attention to how layered it is. How it rises and falls, fades in and out. One second it's a guitar wailing in the background, then a synth, then a cello, then bass, etc. That's something you won't find in most other rap albums. Even a lot of my favorite underground artists can't touch Kanye's production on this album.

I haven't listened to the whole album, but while it may be surprisingly layered for hip-hop it doesn't seem like much to stare at... Especially those 21st Century Schizoid Man samples.

Because every single track is good, and he's changing hip-hop. This isn't your typical hip-hop album that's definately for sure.

How can you say that? It's not your ears or something, I hope? It's the first genre-transcending masterpiece since what? OK Computer? It's a landmark record bringing together a lot of different people. He basically inventend (if not: perfected) a sub-genre: symphonic hip-hop (you know, like Yes, but then with hip-hop). That's something special these days.

The only song I do like (a little bit) is Power. I don't know if that's because it has King Crimson samples though.

Probably not, because if you were a King Crimson purist, you'd probably be offended that a scumbag like Kanye West sampled your greatest heroes. ;)
