Clearly you're wrong and the only reason Kanye uses so much autotune is because he is physically incapable of singing in pitch. Also, he's a talentless hack. Autotune as an artistic choice, yeah right. Real musicians like The Beatles sure didn't need any wacky effects in their music! What scum.

 
did I do that right?

Favorite songs on MBDTF:
1. So Appalled
2. Dark Fantasy
3. Blame Game

But every song is fantastic really. The autotune bit in Runaway doesn't bother me but I can't say I really enjoy it. It's the equivalent of long outros in rock songs for me.

My favourite two are Devil in a New Dress and Gorgeous. Both are so underrated because Monster, Power and All of the Lights were so huge. Those are all great songs but it's a shame those other tracks often get overlooked. The former is my fav Ye song, bar none, and the latter features what I consider to be Kanye's best set of lyrics and most impressive rapping.

I love this lyric: I treat the cash the way the government treats AIDS. I won't be satisfied until all my niggas get it, get it?

His new album is now called Swish, as per his Twitter. "I might change it again but that's the name now"

I think I understand where you're coming from with that, but it's hard for me to agree when the last album he released was so fucking strong. Yeezus is a killer work. I like it as much as anything he's ever done.

Some of the seams show, but Yeezus is about as creative and forward-thinking as it gets for mainstream music of any kind. I think Kanye still gives a damn.

I agree, he's said exactly that in interviews, but he's still making such good music that it doesn't bother me too much.

I hope the longer than expected wait for his new album is because he noticed those autotuned songs are pretty shit. And saying his heart isn't into music any more is pretty ridiculous since he released his last album two years ago and he's on the verge of releasing another one.

I really, really like Only One.

My theory is that he got spooked by how good To Pimp a Butterfly is and so retreated to work on the new album some more.

No question, he had Kendrick on the brain. I'm sure there were other, more practical reasons for delaying the album (surprise dropping in the same 30 days as Kendrick, Drake, Earl, Action Bronson, etc. would have been a mistake), but I've always seen Kanye as a competitive guy. If he starts a Beatles/Beach Boys-esque rivalry with Kendrick, we'll all be better off.
