It comes out in four days. I'll gladly wait.

Me too.

I don't see the appeal in waiting for the release date at all. But that's just me.

I'll wait because I can tell a difference between MP3 and lossless format. Usually it's in the cymbals/tambourines/hit-hat. Subtle, but it bugs me long term and I'd rather be exposed to something in a higher quality.

-Icy as 808s
-Heavy as Cruel Summer (think Mercy, Cold)
-Ambitious as MBDTF, with a lot of the same effects used, including pitch-shifting, autotune and liberal use of distortion

 
I just talked to Jesus
He was like what up Yeezus

Just finished first listen. All of my descriptors are along the lines of crazy/insane/bonkers. First impressions

 
On Sight - does more in 2.5 minutes than Random Access Memories can muster in nearly 80
Black Skinhead - banging my head like a mahfucka, good thing my office door is closed. Sounds significantly 'reduced' from the SNL performance
I Am A God - completely insane ending
New Slaves - Franky Ocean's outro sounds great, really adds a lot
Hold My Liqour - whoa, awesome ending; don't know if that's guitar or synth or what. Outro game on this is TIGHT
I'm In It - little dip in quality, but those first five were awesome
Blood on the Leaves - probably the closest sounding to MBDTF with a little bit of 808s in the autotune'd vocals. Strange Fruit sample, holy shit
Guilt Trip - some dancehall up in this
Send It Up - awesome beat on this one
Bound 2 - soul samples, sounds a bit more like Kanye Classic, still crazy as hell


In short: y'all ain't ready for this.

Kinda hard to believe he could top MBDTF in that respect. That album is Rumours/Vol 4/Be Here Now levels of coked up.

Yeah Yeezus is like the Station to Station of hip-hop. MDBTF is a more sprawling but equally coked Tusk.

Wow. This is great. Ridiculously coked up, but great.

Send it up has me wanting to hit a dance floor while at work.

The last minute of New Slaves is transcendent in a weird way. Processing Ocean's vocals seems like a bad idea but it just works.

This album gets me hyped as fuck. I was going to try to go to bed after my second listen but I got to Black Skinhead and was like fuck no let's go wrestle a grizzly bear or something.

I find it more frightening that Kim Kardashian is a mother, but maybe that's just me.

In any case, I might try and work from home on Tuesday so I can run to Sonic Boom when they open, buy Sigur Ros and Kanye, and spend the rest of the day blasting both of them.

Not at the same time. Probably not.

It's so one-note to be honest. Braggadocio meets Suicide-like backbeats. Kind of reminds me of M.I.A.'s awful last album.

Got to give him points for being very uncompromising though. There really won't be any hit singles from this record.
