And the Bon Iver 'sample' in "Lost in the World" (it was actually rerecorded for/by Kanye) elevates that original song to something truly special.

I couldn't stop giggling when I first heard the Chris Rock bit. But it seems like it'll probably get old upon repeated listens. Though it hasn't with the dozen or so so far.

Kanye doesn't exactly appeal to tween girls or middle aged women the way Taylor Swift does.

How did you manage to get weekly sales numbers for an album that came out five days ago? If it's a projection, it likely doesn't take into account Black Friday sales, but sticks to a more static "it sold X on Tuesday, Y on Wednesday, so it'll sell Z by Monday" approach.

Either way, Kanye has never sold as much in one week as Taylor did with Speak Now.

A little unfair, as Swift is at the peak of her popularity right now.

Let's wait and see how well her fifth album does. Britney Spears' Blackout didn't even go platinum or debut at #1. I make that comparison not on artistic merit but on similar demographic appeal.

She also appeals to demographics that pirate less than Kanye's demographics, and people don't waver over paying for Swift's music because she doesn't offend anyone.

Yeah... Because my statement was clearly saying that African Americans are more prone to pirating than others... Oh wait, I was talking about age not race.
