I thought the release date was in April though. Seems like all promo has come to a halt

After one listen: very good. Tracklisting's completely different. Yeezy brings it again.

I'm really glad that I tuned out the massive hype for this album. Fun it is, MBDTF it is not. This is a vanity project fronted by two men who only want to do the project if it will result in quality, so most of the tracks are above mixtape quality. Furthermore, this isn't a compilation of solo tracks stapled together under the heading of a "collaboration"; you can really hear the chemistry at play here, and you never doubt that the two of them are having fun.

Is it consistent though? Not really. The songs here that show them on truly are unstoppable, and dwarf most anything from Blueprint 3 and Graduation. The weak tracks are fun but frivolous and skippable; I'm thinking Otis and Gotta Have It especially. But, even those are worth a spin, and they have an infectious charm about them, even if they aren't anything special. The album's mix is consistently a little busy and overstuffed, but the mood of the record is a jovial one; a wise choice. It makes it easier to turn the great moments up higher and laugh off the weaker ones.

My personal favorites:

No Church In The Wild
Lift Off
New Day
That's My Bitch (hoooooolllly shiiiiit those DRUMS)

you sound like you like it a lot more than you are letting on. that reads like those pitchfork reviews where they give an album like a 6 but the review reads an 8.

Clearly someone doesn't understand hipster metrics.

It's the inverse, actually. I want to like it more than I do, but I'm fine with what's here. A few songs are great, most are interesting. But no, it's not quite an 8. Not yet, anyway.

I'm sure Gareth Camp! will have several titles that are better before this year is out.

That muthafucka be clever.

Their three albums have actually expanded my vocabulary quite a bit... I just hope the songs are good
