Kanye West Survivor: Pick Your Favorite Kanye West Albums

OK, we doin' this. As is customary, we have to determine the tiers for the albums first, and this is the most fun way of going about it, unless there's a method that I don't know about, perhaps involving monkeys and laser guns or something.

Here are the albums we're voting on:

1. The College Dropout
2. Late Registration
3. Graduation
4. 808s & Heartbreak
5. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
6. Watch the Throne
7. Cruel Summer

The winner will receive five songs in the final draw, #2 and #3 will receive four songs, #4, #5 and #6 will receive three songs and the loser will still receive two songs because I'm a nice enough guy. This makes 24 songs for the final poll, and if you like, we can do a non-album draw to make it 25. Your call.

For this poll, pick your FOUR favorites. No more, no less.

Vote strategically if you wish for the duration of this survivor, but do not ask me to change your vote unless you really did click the wrong button. We're on an honor system here. If you want to vote strategically, wait until the poll is about to end.

Let's do this.

First two + MBDTF will probably be a popular answer, and it is mine as well. The fourth is a close one between Graduation and 808s. I want to vote strategically there, but I have more of an emotional attachment to Graduation. It just came out at the right time for me, and every time I hear it, the album is a huge mood lift. 808s is probably going to get fucked though, which blows. It's a very good, well-constructed album. More so than Graduation, which is just a bunch of songs.

Graduation is significantly better than 808.

Also, does Kanye even appear on all the Cruel Summer tracks?

Nope.

But I know that, at this point, a Kanye West survivor without Mercy and New God Flow would be a flawed one, so I want it to at least get the opportunity for two songs in the final draw. I figure at least HeartlandGirl will vote for it.

So why not save a bunch of hassle and just executive order them into the poll. Because nothing else from that album is making it.

The album hasn't been around long enough to make an executive order like that. Maybe in a Passengers situation where Miss Sarajevo and Your Blue Room are clearly more popular than the surrounding tracks. Digitize nearly did that with the current U2 survivor.

There isn't really any "hassle" either; each poll will just involve us picking our favorites in a single round for three days. The final draw is where the survivor actually starts.

I know. Definitely one of my most unpopular opinions.

Also yes please to a non-album draw. White Dress might be on my Yeezy Rushmore.

I appreciate the consideration and lack of executive order. Maybe others love New God Flow as the second best track on the Cruel Summer record, but I would take Clique and To the World over it. I'm glad we'll have the chance to debate it and vote, even though some may find it a foregone conclusion which songs would move on.
