I don't really like how Kanye is releasing another album when he had already released Graduation last year.

Regardless, I hope it will be hit.

Why? It's okay for artists to follow up soon after another one hits, especially if it's a creative period.

It's a stellar album and an interesting departure from his usual stuff. I'm really loving it so far.

You would've hated the '60s.

Heard Heartless the other night, I like it.

Then again, it could just be my state of mind at the moment, but whatever.

I'm starting a four-album Kanye marathon. No idea why, considering 808s is going to stick out like a sore thumb, but it's still fun.

College Dropout FTW.

Although I do dig what he's done with 808's.

Oh, not me... That would be other people. :stoopidboys:

I swore I thought his next album would be Student Loans, like I saw someone on this forum joke about, hah.

I've only heard "Love Lockdown" so far, and I'm really not digging it. It's a shame because I love basically everything he's done. Is the rest of the album better?

What I had heard from a number of places was that his follow up album to Graduation would be called Good Ass Job. No joke.

In a word, no. Paranoid and Heartless are better, but Love Lockdown is in the top 5, probably.

It's easily his worst album, but still worth a few listens.

Yeah, I'm funny like that. I like my rappers to, oh, I don't know, rap.

I honestly wouldn't care if he could actually sing.

This album needs a few verses, actually. There's a lot of dead air that the beats are too repetitive to properly fill. None of the tracks really take off like they should.

Seems like people here like the album more than the critics, who have been savaging it.
