I love this because it shows the growth of Kanye and also his change of style over the years.

Almost every rap artist can recreate his first couple of albums

Nobody can touch the technicality and style of this album though.

This is the new generation of style
thank you, everyone who can't relise this themselves no matter how much they dislike his album is fucking stupid

Yeezy did his thang. 4/5 stars

the albums really experimental. it reminds me of 808's & Heartbreak with the electro sound of Graduation.
mix with the raw rhymes from MBDTF. it boils down to your own opinion. some might like it some might not.
I personally think while its not his best he has to offer, it's still a great album.

I think he had lyrics but the beats were low budget electro throwaways. There is no excuse for the laziness of some of them migraines he called beats. It's not experimental it was just half ass but he figured he was at a point where whatever he does people will dig it. He even said so on twitter. "Ya'll gonna buy it anyway". And he's right.:|

I like Polo and stuff.

aiight 2cents time rn
aiight first this albums like a 8 or 8.5 out of 10. there are some decent tracks but its a bit forgettable. the track beats and production stay relatively similar throughout the album. id give him props on black skinhead and new slaves; though they are contradictory to a lot of his sht they are dope tracks. the album lost me because a lot of the songs were about the same topic or theme and then u got tracks that just sound mad similar leading to just forgettable tracks . plus i cant be the only that found tht autotune whining annoying as fuck. track for track production was on top but as a whole piece it was just one clump of sounds melded together. im a sucka for old school styled track tho so this was there for me. i can see this style of hip hop going places but its just not for me.

yup, Daft Punk, No ID, and Mike dean is cheap production.  Rick Rubin broke down the beats to more simple/minimal beats from what they once were, they aren't half assed

Yeezus was good
Jun 21, 2013 @ 00:11
Yawn. I guess I understand how people might think this album is "new" and "experimental", if they haven't listened to any music outside of common reach and popularity. It's definitely new and experimental in terms of Kanye, but that's pretty much it.  Lyrics were so rushed it's hilarious...Chief Keef is fucking shit outside of his "Back from the Dead" mixtape. 

I just talked to Jesus
He said, "what's up yeezus?"

Fucking cringe LOL

Kanye west’s greatest coup is how quickly he has convinced to majority of music critics to agree with him in the disownment of his back catalouge.  I just listened to all of the lights interlude into the song, monster, then skipped ahead to runaway.   Those three songs alone allowed Pitchfork to remain credible after giving the album a perfect and nearly unseen 10 out of ten.  What everyone seems to forget at the release of the latest Kanye album, often due to the massive tonal shifts between projects, is that the majority of his work, especially that praised highest, ages extremely well.  In fact, these great moments from the man actually serve to reverse the normative art-memory relationship and bring the listener back through dimensions to the point they first had this album.  Not oddly at all, the two best songs on Kanye’s album fit on a direct line drawn from the college dropout.  Bounds 2 sounds as close to vintage Kanye as anything ever has, but its the monumental, and surprisingly not controversial, “Blood on the Leaves” that is the farthest marked locus on what by now surely seems to be a ray of an audiology.  I am a massive TNGHT fan.  Ordered their ep months before it actually came out.  etc.  Those horns are dominating.  This audience does not have any memory of pop made with full string and horn sections, but patrons of the funk did not forget.  It does not surprise that this song, and daft punk’s luscious summer jam, harken back to these sounds.  Kanye is perfect for this time, and especially this week, because he is so closely tied to Lebron in my mind.  Both are preposterously talented, but are both so difficult to expect anything from.

Great first post. Very in depth and educated. I even agree with you at some parts. Still all that comes to mind being you decided to enter the game with an essay on the brilliance of Yeezy.....

9.5/10 

yeezus dropped the 10 commandments and made some shit that everyone will be emulating 2-3 years from now. and by everyone i don't mean a variety of underground artist i mean the billboard top 100. would have given 10/10 if guilt trip wasn't on it.

completely agree with you on statements regarding bound and blood on the leaves. 

the album is 9 hell of a night inspired songs, 8 of which are fucking awesome as shit, but just my opinion feel free to bash me especially considering im doing a 2day bump.

Kanye West is one of the best rappers out today, but I wasn't really feeling the album. The lyrics were okay I suppose but the production was a little different for a typical rap album, my favorite was Bound 2 I loved the kicks and melodies. But overall it was a disappointment for me. He proved that some people just buy certain artists stuff because of their stature in the industry.

Most real quote in this thread. This album just sounds like shit you'd hear in a Brooklyn warehouse, maybe 5-7 years ago. No issues if you like this, but if it's blowing your mind, you should probably stop listening to hot 97 for your music fix.

Bound 2 is the best song on the album because of it's "earlier kanye" Kanye Flow and the sample
Blood on teh Leaves is perhaps the best produced song on teh album, the mstering and layering is wonderful
I'm in it is good because of the production as well, and the structure is dynamic and the lyric are good
New Slaves is a solid song honestly, as is Black Skin head ( because it's super energetic)

For loyal Kanye fans who has followed Ye since Freshman Adjustment, this is simply growth and dynamicism for him.
It has received alot of flak because it's too abnormal from what people are used to hearing.
who cares? Kanye sure as hell doesn't, he even said himself that this album he wa smaking music
for HIM, no one else, not for the record sales or anyhting.
