Bad news, guys. The entire album utilizes auto-tune. And there's only 11 songs on it.

YouTube - Kanye West-Heartless [FULL SONG , studio version]

November 25, if anyone is still interested.

I've been following this pretty closely, and I have to say I was originally disappointed in the change of direction. Apparently only two or three tracks on the album feature Kanye actually rapping. Disappointing because, to me, his ability to put together a sharp and clever verse was the top reason that I became a fan of his.

But, now that I've figured out what he's trying to do with this album, I've become more optimistic. Also, there's a song off the album called 'Robocop' that has surfaced and it's pretty good.

Not sure what I think about the song, but I really like this video. One of my favorites I've seen so far this year.

I just did a remix project of "Love Lockdown", some sort of odd hip hop meets swing music idea I was going with. That and transforming the vocals so that Kanye, what sounds like a little kid version of him, and an old blues singer trade off on the vocals.

As for the album, autotune needs to go away, but to me Kanye's strengths are his beats and mixing, not usually his lyrics. I'm interested but not eagerly anticipating it. Liked a bunch of tracks on each of his albums, but never really listen to any of them in a row.

I'm not afraid to say I'm extremely excited for this. Kanye's Sea Change/Blood on the Tracks in the year that I suffered my worst breakup of all time? Sign me up.

I can get behind "Heartless" and can sure as hell get behind the video, but "Love Lockdown" still disappoints me.

I still haven't heard that one. Is there an "official video" for it?

Love Lockdown took time with me, but I can appreciate the style he's gone for with it. That said, I wouldn't want to hear a whole album in the same vein. More 'Graduation' is good.

ETA: I haven't actually checked the new material out yet.

The closest thing we have to a leak for the moment, courtesy of HipHopDX:

Heartless
Amazing
Love Lockdown
Paranoid
Robocop
Coldest Winter

Robocop sounds awesome, as does Paranoid.

How can anything named "Robocop" not be awesome... besides Robocop 2 and Robocop 3.
