I still think this album is massively overrated. It is good, no doubting that at all, but in no way, shape or form is it a 10/10 album.

Dark Fantasy, Gorgeous, Run Away, Devil in a New Dress, Hell of a Life and Blame Game are all too long, and all would be better songs (and would in turn make the album more enjoyable) if Kanye had edited them. Personally I think MBDTF screams out for editing more than any LCD release does.

Not sure how anyone can enjoy the last four or so minutes of Run Away. That vocoder/synth solo is just absolute garbage (and I'm not the only one who believes this is so!). Usually I hate radio edits but in this case it benefits the song greatly.

Jay-Z's verse on Monster is the worst in that song, but it's not as bad as people say. He then has the best verse on So Appalled, the best song on the album.

The auto-tune for the first 45 seconds of Lost in the World is painful to sit through. Luckily the rest of the song is bangin'.

Some downright shocking lines (mostly referring to the misogyny, I've had enough of it by the time Blame Game rolls around), but a lot of it is pretty good. "Have you ever had sex with a pharoah? / Ahhh put the pussy in a sarcophagus" would be my favourite.

I definitely still prefer Sir Lucious Left Foot though, and by quite a distance.

I could write 500 words detailing my love for this album, but there are already 500 people doing so at this very moment.

Sounds like your post could use some editing.

I was gonna let you finish COBL, but then you called So Appalled the best song on the album.

You're right, it's worse.

Yeah but still the best song on the album by far.

I don't think I have a favorite song on this album, but I'd find it hard to argue with that.

That stretch from Power to So Appalled is quite impressive.
