So far it's the best of the year. At the Grammys next year I can't imagine what it'll be competing against though, if it'll be competing at all... It ain't a great seller and we know that when that's the case it's hard to show up at the big categories.

Btw, ranking the songs...

Dark Fantasy
Runaway
Power
Monster
Hell of a Life
Lost In the World/Who Will Survive In America
All of the Lights (Interlude and Main Parts)
So Appalled
Blame Game
Gorgeous
Devil In a New Dress


Also, am I alone in thinking that a collaboration album between him and Janelle Monáe is the most logical thing to happen sometime?

I'll rank the songs as well, just because I'm bored.

All of the Lights
Power
Monster
Lost in the World
Runaway
Dark Fantasy
Gorgeous
Hell of a Life
Devil in a New Dress
Blame Game
So Appalled

...but I like all of them, so even the bottom ones rate highly.

Hell of a Life is my least favorite, that's all I can say at this point. The others are all just too damned good for me really rank right now.

Also, I knew people were disparaging Jay-Z for his work on Monster, but I love this part in So Appalled:

"I lost thirty mil so I spent another thirty
cuz unlike Hammer thirty million can't hurt me"

The only two songs I skip past are Devil in a New Dress and So Appalled.

It's a pretty dang consistent album.

Monster - 10/10
Power - 10/10
All of the Lights - 9.5/10
Lost In The World/Who Will Survive In America - 9/10
Devil In A New Dress - 8.5/10
Dark Fantasy - 8.5/10
Gorgeous - 8.5/10
Runaway - 8/10
So Appalled - 7.5/10
Blame Game - 7/10
Hell of a Life - 6.5/10

Yeah, it's pretty damn consistent. I like Hell of a Life more than the rating I gave it, I'm pretty sure, and Blame Game is damn good, if a bit too heavy-handed. So Appalled is growing on me.

My...son?

Couldn't have described my feelings any better.

The rankings above those bottom two would be slightly different.

edit, some explanations, since i'm for tea...

So Appalled - love Jay-Z's verse. music is indeed phenomenal.
Power
Devil in a New Dress
Lost in the World/Who Will Survive in America - what an absolute banger! shame the first 30 or seconds are autotune drone!
Monster
Blame Game
Runaway - one example of a song where i far prefer the radio/single edit/version
Hell of a Life
All of the Lights - can't stand Rihanna. catchy as hell.
Gorgeous - not bad, but never really changes despite going for six minutes.
Dark Fantasy - can't stand the "can we get much higher" bits. like nails on a chalkboard and they take up a fair portion of the song.

I'm in the same boat as Laz, I'm not sure I can rank any of these without immediately betraying my own taste which is sure to move all over the place with regard to preferences here. It's all excellent. So let's not let that stop me:

1. Runaway (I'm having a hard time separating this from its absolutely gorgeous music video at this point - not talking about the full 34 minute short film)
2. Monster
3. Lost in the World/Who Will Survive in America
4. Devil in a New Dress
5. So Appalled
6. POWER
7. Dark Fantasy
8. Gorgeous
9. All of the Lights
10. Blame Game
11. Hell of a Life

1. Lost in the World/ Who Will Survive in America
2. Hell of a Life
3. All of the Lights - The removal of Fergie's unnecessary verse from the track would elevate it.
4. Gorgeous
5. Power (would be higher if it was the remix)
6. So Appalled
7. Dark Fantasy
8. Monster
9. Blame Game
10. Runaway --- The most overrated KanYe track? I think so.
11. Devil in a New Dress --- Why wasn't "Don't Look Down" included on the album over this? It's probably because "So Appalled" serves similar purpose.

i like the hook, but i could get on board with this. the single note eight-hour piano intro and the 13-hour synth solo are extremely tedious. I.M.O.
