That's probably the worst track in the whole album. But give me a minute and I'll hook it up. I would recommend you gave the album a listen. It's pretty tight. And I'm far from a Kanye fan.

Props 187proof for supplying everyone

Album's quite nice - not really impressive imo but still rather enjoyable for the most part. Maybe it's just me, but the whole seemed rather short to me. Oh well, this was definately better than Common's disappointing "Finding Forever".

Yep, Ive also burned it on a cd and bumped in a car yesterday, didnt really bang hard, except 1 or 2 tracks. Its more of a mp3 player kind of music.

Quick lil' review.....

01.     Good Morning (Intro)                     - Solid, bit boring - 3/5

02.     Champion                                     - Nice, Upbeat - 4.25/5

03.     Stronger                                      - Don't like the sample but this is done really well - 4/5

04.     I Wonder                                     - Hmmn don't really understand the hype that this track is getting ??? - 3.75/5
 
05.     Good Life (Ft. T-Pain)                    - Grew on me like crazy, one of the few tracks ive heard where i thought kanye murked it
                                                              - 4.5/5

06.     Can't Tell Me Nothing                    - Solid track - 4/5

07.     Barry Bonds (Ft. Lil Wayne)            - Lacks something...... - 3.5/5

08.     Drunk And Hot Girls (Ft. Mos Def)   - This is different but i like it - 4/5

09.     Flashing Lights (Ft. Dwele)             - Best track on thee album, beat is fresh and Dwele absolutely murks the hook :o - 5/5

10.     Everything I Am                           - Brilliant tune, mayb a bit boring but i love it  8) - 4.75/5

11.     The Glory                                    - 'I Cud stand there in a pair of speedos and still be a fucking hero!!'   ;D LMAO Amazing tune,
                                                              can't believe Common passed on it - 5/5

12.     Homecoming  (Ft. Chris Martin)      - Don't understand the hype, average track - 3.75/5

13.     Big Brother                                  - Good song but people are only hyping it up cos its about jigga (whos not the g.o.a.t!!)
                                                              - 4.25/5

jus wot ive thought bout the album so far, bumped it for like 4 hours in a row y'day wen working, so it's not like ive jus heard the album for the 1st time, this is a solid 4.13/5 album IMO and i think its his best album so far.....

Nobody is mentioning "Everything I Am"?  I think that track is amazing.  And yeah, "Big Brother" gave me chills too.  Great album besides the Mos Def track.

Ok, I've given the album like 5 spins now, so I'll write a little review. I normally don't do this because I suck at reviewing, but it's whatever.

Good Morning - Nice little intro. It immediately gets you in the mood to listen to the new Kanye West album.

Champion - Nice up-tempo song. I like Kanye's flow and the transition from Ye's rap to the singer's vocals.

Stronger - This track doesn't fit the album, but as an individual track it's not bad at all.

I Wonder - The production on this track is great. Really chill track to listen to.

Good Life - Fucking T-Pain!! When I first heard the track I thought it was so dope. So far I've listened to this track the most, but guess what? T-Pain sings false. When he goes like "I'ma put shit doooooown" that last word is so false. His voice should also be more powerful. Remember Tony Williams who shined on We Major on Late Registration? He would have murked it!!

Can't Tell Me Nothing - Not the best song on the album, but it's a good song. It fits the vibe of the album well.

Barry Bonds - Meh, I'm not feeling this one so much.

Drunk & Hot Girls - WTF is this? He better use this as a single, so it at least has a purpose.

Flashing Lights - I like the production. Kanye comes nice, Dwele is such a good singer. I love this song!

Everything I Am - Close your eyes and listen to the piano. Great song!

The Glory - Nice up-speed sample, Kanye raps good... Nothing wrong with this track.

Homecoming - Chris Martin is a king when it comes down to guest features. Great song, best on the album!

Big Brother - Good song. I like the lyrics.



Overall, this is a good album, but it has its weaker moments. I'm gonna bitch on Good Life again: if it had a better singer I could play it more than 15 times. The tracks with Mos Def and Lil Wayne are really disappointing. Production wise it doesn't fuck with Late Registration. The overall vibe is good, but I feel like it's not as good as Late Registration or The College Dropout.

Wow, lotta hate for drunk and hot girls. I actually like the song because it's different. It also sounds a lot better on a hi-end stereo system too. Flashing Lights is easily becomming one of my favorites though.

There were only two tracks on the album that I didn't like and they were "Good Morning" and "I Wonder".  In "Good Morning" the annoying howling just makes you want to skip the whole track, othervise the song is just fine. "I wonder" is just simply boring. Kanye should have spit more in that. In my opinion the stand out tracks were "Stronger", "Can't Tell Me Nothin", "Drunk And Hot Girls" and "Home Coming".
It's a really good album, I even put it on pre-order. I can't compare this to his previous albums because I haven't heard them.

Pretty damn good album from Kanye. The length is refreshing compared to his previous overly long albums and both the production and lyrics are great throughout.

Anyone else think that Chris Martin just sounds like John Legend though? It must be the vocal treatment they do in the studio or something, because it definitely had me double-taking the first time I heard it.
Title: Re: Kanye_West-Graduation-2007- (EXPLICIT)
Post by: Intriago33 on September 04, 2007, 11:41:49 AM
On the first listen I am impressed, the album had a strong start and was consistent throughout. The only track I would skip would be the joint with Mos Def.
I'll make a better judgement after a few more listens, but it certainly has the potential for album of the year alongside Finding Forever at the moment.

U got a point, but in my first listen I didn't know it was C. Martin, but I didn't thought it was Legend.
But damn, why didn't he have Legend on ???

I got the album since yesterday and GODDAMN. It´s dope as hell

1. Good Morning 5/5 (really nice intro)
2. Champion 4,5/5 (nice beat, nice sample and good verses from Kanye)
3. Stronger 5/5 (I just love this shit  8))
4. I Wonder 5/5 (the sample is just wonderful)
5. Good Life 4/5 (nice track but nothing special at all. good to sell some more albums)
6. Can't Tell Me Nothing 5/5 (one of my favorite tracks this year, just amazing)
7. Barry Bonds 3,5/5 (nice beat, YeYe spits good but I don´t feel Wayne)
8. Drunk and Hot Girls 4,5/5 (after a few times I really enjoy this track. reminds me a lil bit of Eazy´s "I´d Rather Fuck You"
9. Flashing Lights 5/5 (the synthie sample is amazing)
10. Everything I Am 5/5 (nice lyrics, wonderfully beat and nice scratches by Premo)
11. The Glory 5/5 (really powerful track with another sample that´s fit just perfect)
12. Homecoming 4,5/5 (cool joint with a nice hook from Chris Martin)
13. Big Brother 5/5 (maybe a lil bit cockriding on Jigga, but I love this song too)

Overall the best Hip Hop record (with "Finding Forever") this year in my opinion
