I'm not feeling it. I'm tired of the autotune garbage. However, I'm still looking forward to the album.
Sep 10, 2008 @ 19:25
i think ill stick to the live version
Sep 10, 2008 @ 19:28
sounds like shit
Sep 10, 2008 @ 19:28
i think if he could recapture the energy of the chorus he had in the live version and keep the rest of this edition it would dope.

shit i might try to do it myself when i get the feeling...

Don't know if it's been answered yet, but just to let you guys know, that "808's and Heartbreak" cover with the Roland is not the real deal. Someone on the Kanye Live website made it.
Sep 10, 2008 @ 20:32
^EXACTLY. and i posted the real one as did todrunktowalk.



do ya'll not read?

i posted this album cover a couple pages back and todrunk2walk posted it as well in his post and ya'll are still arguing over the makeshift album cover in paint. wtf. anything to argue and bicker online.
Sep 10, 2008 @ 20:38
WOW ive listn to it 5 times...... i like it... i dont know why but its a chill song reminds me of viva la vida by cold play. i also like how all u *****s be saying o it sucks and shit when we know everybody will be buying his album and jumping back on the dick.
Sep 10, 2008 @ 20:46
But that's just the cover for the single.


Notice how the cover just says Love Lockdown, which is the single.

of course people will buy the album, that doesn't mean its good. and the people that are willing to post here expect greatness from kanye. Essentially this thread is dissappointed, at worst, at the direction he's taking with the autotune/emo thing but are willing to see where it goes (i.e. the album).

This song doesn't bang like Stronger, Diamonds and Jesus Walks did in the past (ignoring Through the Wire, which I feel was an oppurtunistic first single)..

The chorus kills the song. I love the rest of it.
Sep 10, 2008 @ 21:42
Still is disbelief that this is the final/mastered version
I mean you hear Ye clapping in the background during the hook like it's a studio demo for the song. Who knows. Guess time will tell
Sep 10, 2008 @ 21:44
Definitely better live. Not sure what he's trying to go for on the chorus. Im still diging the song though...even if it's just to download that hoe to my ipod and blast this in the whip when im drunk as fuck. I cant wait to see all the sould sample, auto tune hating Kanye fans disown him now though...that shits gonna be funny/epic.

co-sign. def sounded better live

that's exactly where i stand right now. needs to clean that chorus up and it'll be good. it needs that intensity it had live.

i'm the best mayne, i deed it

Thanks sounds better & he should of saved that single cover for the album.
Sep 11, 2008 @ 02:19
love lockdown is 10X better live than on studio quality from what ive heard so far
Sep 11, 2008 @ 02:39
This need the heavenly mixing skills of Manny Marroquin!
Sep 11, 2008 @ 04:20
i swear to god if kanye uses the fucking vocoder on his album ill be pissed. he doesnt need that shit to make a great album. college dropout = no vocoder = classic


He should leave the vocoder to roger troutman. kanye does'nt sound good

^ the way it should have been done. I also don't think this is the official final CDQ version. i think he's pulling a Lollipop. I'm sure you all remember how fucking horrible Lollipop was when it first hit the internet, but Wayne surprised us all with the official version once the video hit.


I damn sure hope so, because so far the studio version is weak as hell. The chorus is really wack...very un-kanye, at least I think.

I guess the 808 really does stand for disturbing the peace and not a Roland-808... hahaha
Sep 11, 2008 @ 12:05
I'm iffy about this album.

College Dropout = Dope
Late Registration = Even Doper
Graduation = Semi-Dope
808's & Heartbreaks = So far, not excited.

And what happened to "Good Ass Job"?
