So Appalled makes me think of Berlin trilogy Bowie/Eno albums.

Dre's been working on his for at least a year now, but still no word on actually releasing it, Big Boi said that they'd do a new OutKast album following Andre's solo release.

As to the matter at hand, 2 thoughts:

1. Tracks 1-9 range from incredible to quite good, whereas Hell of A Life and Blame Game are pretty lame

2. This should be released as 'Kanye West & Friends' it's the most collaborative hip hop album I've ever heard, and imagine all the people/composers it took behind the scene, but in egomaniacal rap Kanye is king. That said, he's got better flow going on during most of these tracks than pretty much his entire career prior to this, but a number of them he's only present for a moment while the samples and guests make up the majority of the song.

This is a very creative, personal album, but I can't believe anyone would think it's better than Late Registration.

Ridiculous.

Also, it's $8.99 at Target.

Also, forgive me if this has been pointed out already, but on (I think) the third track, Kanye samples the same Roger McGuinn (Byrds, I'm assuming) song that Shuttlecock used for a part in The Playbird Clubhouse: "You Showed Me".

I'm not sure. A lot of the keyboard makes me think of Side B on Low, I don't know. It's a compliment.

I don't know that I would have made that comparison if I wasn't listening to them close to each other, but I can hear that.

I'll agree with that also. So much more soulful, and somehow even more emotional. I will always treasure that album.

But fucking hell is Twisted Fantasy ever good. He can't go back to his old sound at this point, but I'm really excited to see what he can do next. I would hate to have to follow this album up, especially with all the hype and unanimous praise.

I think the man needs some positive influences in his life, then maybe we could have the first big contrite hip-hop album... but that'd never happen, he's to nutso to apologize!

Also, as to following hype and unanimous praise, granted it's a bit stronger than ever, but with the exception of 808's which got some more mixed reviews, he's had to make that kind of follow-up every time out in his career.

BTW, Powerhour, you skipped over Lost In The World/Who Will Survive In America. What's your take on those? The album definitely hits a dead spot around there, but it's resurrected with those last two tracks. Woods was always pretty crappy, but I love the way it's used there.

Oh yeah, I meant to single out the strong ending of the album, I agree with you completely, and it absolutely made 'Woods' into something far more special than it was on its own!
