artistic integrity is a commendable ideal to a certain degree...but at the end of the day these guys are doing it for a living, not as a hobby. If you can balance artistic integrity with mass units, then great job. But from an 'artist's' perspective, once you throw your shit out there at Best Buy, the work is no longer yours anyway...

Gave the album a bit of a listen, can say that I'm really fucking with Welcome To Heartbreak and RoboCop is growing on me too. Otherwise Street Lights isn't bad either but the rest of the album I'm passing by at this point.

Just something about Welcome To Heartbreak though, feels so goddamn deep. :-|

Fuck Kanye, he let all that publicity go straight to his head, and started making terrible music thinking everybody would love it just because he's motherfucking Kanye West. Get off his nuts. SRSLY he is not the biz

I thought that half of Late Registration sucked anyway as well as with Graduation, 3/4 of 808s & Heartbreaks sucks too.

But there are a few very good value tracks on each of those albums. Nothing on the level that The College Dropout was though.

Late Registration was long, but not the good kind.

I liked CD & Graduation.

808's and Heartbreak is diff, but it's cool. It really doesn't have that great of a replay value though. I killed it last week. :-/

"Welcome to Heartbreak" has replaced "Last Call" , "Late" and "Drunk and Hot Girls" as the defining song of Kanye's career. On every album he had that one song that sums up where he's gotten up to that point. I think it'd be a good note to go out on.

Just because people like some of the songs on this album they are dickriding right? And since you don't like it at all you aren't hating on him right?

I guess everyone is intitled to their opinion. But i honestly would consider it Hip hop, considering HipHop is only a cultural movement and or rhythmic vocal style. Kanye is trying to reach new limits with His music and Hip hops culture alone. I dont think he is trying to appeal to anyone, everyone around the world likes his music, even when his first cd dropped it wasn't only black people who was listening. usually when you go to concerts of "hip hop" artist you see a lot of white people either way no matter the artist, Music now is so diverse it dosent limit its self to one racial group.

And most of all i hate how people specially on this forum say if you like this shit, your a nut rider. thats not that case if your a fan of music, or it just appeals to your ear, you like the shit, you dont have to be a dick rider thats fucken stupid, because in that case what ever music or "thing" you like/love your a dick rider to the maker of that product.

You cant really say the songs arnt catchy, because i think that was ye's vision in the songs, so when he does a concert, the entire crowd will be singing with him, like a sing-a-long, and majority of the songs have hooks. alot of hooks, therefor they are someone catchy.

Thats my rant on helgens post and everyone else smile

But i guess im a dick rider.

im a dick rider too then, no homo

Kanye is also trying to appeal to caucasians, hipsters and electro heads


he should stick to his old "style".
