Everyone knew his retirement was a marketing scheme, he even says so in the song "Encore"

I don't understand why this point is being brought back up over and over again. They both admitted it was a (lame) marketing ploy.
They don't have a problem with each other.

True, I'm not saying I bought into it, just that the world might be a better place if it came true haha.

Just bumping this to say that I'm officially on the "Graduation is a brilliant album" bandwagon. It took a while, but this is a really great piece of work. It's unfortunate that all of the worst songs are concentrated in the middle (Can't Tell Me Nothin', Barry Bonds, Drunk And Hot Girls), but Flashing Lights--->Everything I Am--->The Glory is an absolutely wonderful trio. I would rank Kanye West's albums like this:

1. Late Registration (8.5/10)
2. Graduation (8.1/10)
3. College Dropout (7.8/10)

I haven't given College Dropout much time to sink in, however. In the context of 2007, I would place it in the top 5:

1. Spoon - GaGaGaGaGa
2. Arcade Fire - Neon Bible
3. The Shins - Wincing The Night Away
4. LCD Soundsystem - Sound Of Silver
5. Kanye West - Graduation
