I thought it would get released as a 3D dvd/hdvd/blu-ray/beyonddoublevynil, cool to see something tho.

I still like things that glow in the dark.

Songs I'm feeling:

Amazing, Heartless, Love Lockdown, Welcome to the Heartbreak (bad quality, but what I can hear is really great)

Production is good as always. But on some songs I JUST CAN'T stand this fake singing (Auto-tune) shit.

Kanye is not naturally gifted with a singing voice, so he tries to cover it up with auto-tune to sound appealing to bitches & such, but hes about to flop...

Yeah it happened to Snoop, experimenting a little bit too much. Kanye is too talented to settle for making music like that. But he is ego tripping all the time so he don't care.

This album is garbage with a capital G.  Only songs worth playing a second time are Amazing feat Jeezy and Paranoid aka Anyway.   And they're not even that good, barely worthy of being leftovers from Late Registration

What you SHOULD anticipate, is the new Luda album, everything points to that being far superior to this.

Ok, I don't expect much of it, but it's still a Kanye album!! "Love Lockdown" and especially "Robocop" have grown on me a lot. It's probably going to suck ass, but I'm still excited to check it out.

no label would do that.

They wouldn't openly admit it, but they would rather have songs circulating in bad quality than in top notch quality.

Big releases usually get leaked on Thursdays, so I'ma put my e-money for the grouprip on Thursday.

This release won't even be worth a blank disc being used to burn it with.Luda's album will be hit and miss. I'm worried about E-40's being shit , too. I'll burn the Luda and E-40 releases, but I think all three of these albums will be forgettable. 40 Water's will have atleast a few dope cuts ( thanks to Rick Rock ).

I'm sure all the people talking down on this album hated on "The Love Below" as well (which is what "808's And Heartbreak" reminds me of). I love this album (though, I haven't heard the two songs that haven't leaked). When a hip-hop artist releases an album like this (a la Andre 3000), most "hardcore hip-hop fans" despise their art. Hip-hop to me has no boundaries (which is why I love it so much), and too often the music stays in a repetitive loop. Artists like Kanye, Andre 3000, Cee-Lo...have such a great vision to expand the music and take it to levels where it's never been before (not only in hip-hop, but music in general/which is something I can never hate on). "808's and Heartbreak" is simply great music to me.

^using auto tune and singing on a whole album is far from having a vision or expanding the music; it's a cheap way out of selling records because kanye saw auto tune/singing (1 or both) work for T-Pain, Wayne & T.I..decides to make a fuckin full album of it ::)

plz don't ever compare Kanye to 3Stacks

I feel what you are saying. But for me, certain artists I DO NOT want to hear singing and Kanye is one of them. For me he has just fallen in love with this autotune craze that is starting to fuck up the quality of the music. When Andre and Cee-Lo did it, it was not forced. With Kanye it seems like it is and there is a hidden agenda behind it (SALES, COUGH!)

Alright, the whole idea behind the "808's And Heartbreak" album has to do with the vocoder and 808 drums. The vocoder is the heartbreak (sadness in the lyrics) and the album's backdrop is the 808 drums. Only once during the album he strays from the vocoder (on the upbeat "Paronoid"). Like I've said, there's a couple tracks I haven't heard, so I can't make a fair review of this, yet. However, from what I've heard, I haven't listened to an album in a long time with the almost flawless production as 808's.
I compared this to "The Love Below" because it has the same theme and vibe (though I like "The Love Below" better, so far). 808's is an exceptional album, though. There's a lot of substance to Kanye's lyrics, as well (his songwriting has definitely improved on this album/poetically).

that's how i see it; it was cool when 3stacks did it and cee-lo because there was no hidden agenda which i see as easy sales as well.

I just find it ironic and very unoriginal on Kanye's part to do a vocoder/autotune heavy album with the Waynes T-Pain's, Snoops and 50's of the world had have tried it and had success with it. And hip hop now is about copying trends and doing it still people are sick in the stomach of it. If his intentions are good that is one thing, but this is Kanye here. He has a Napolean complex.

not wack because the music itself was good

g-funk = good
autotune = not good

lol, simple as that..it wasn't original for everyone to jump onto gfunk, but at least it's good..u talkin' to the wrong 1..i ain't 1 of the west coast heads stuck up on the 90s and all that shit actin like everything now in days sucks..i fucks with all coasts..difference is kanye jumped on something that sucks lol

But, you have to take his music on this album into account. Regardless if you like autotune or not, the beats are amazing. Yeah, I'm not a big fan of the autotune either (never liked T-Pain's music), but it works very nice on this album, IMO.

wack yes for certain artists. Unoriginal yes when it is over used. EVERYONE and they momma is doing autotune right now just because Lollipop did well and other tracks. Just because it sounds good for one artists does not mean it's good for everyone. G-Funk included.

I'm sure all the people talking down on this album hated on "The Love Below" as well (which is what "808's And Heartbreak" reminds me of). I love this album (though, I haven't heard the two songs that haven't leaked). When a hip-hop artist releases an album like this (a la Andre 3000), most "hardcore hip-hop fans" despise their art. Hip-hop to me has no boundaries (which is why I love it so much), and too often the music stays in a repetitive loop. Artists like Kanye, Andre 3000, Cee-Lo...have such a great vision to expand the music and take it to levels where it's never been before (not only in hip-hop, but music in general/which is something I can never hate on). "808's and Heartbreak" is simply great music to me.

are you serious? lol you can not compare this shit to Andre 3000? Talkin about using atotune "art" LMAO.

If this was anyone other than Kanye West (or if this was the first album Kanye did), do y'all think this album would get the same amount of hate? I love every Kanye West album, but I like especially like how he goes against the grain on this one (it's fresh, like when Outkast/Andre threw a curve ball w/ "The Love Below"/another classic to me).

I SAID THIS WHEN LOVE LOCKDOWN CAME OUT, IT STANDS FOR THIS ENTIRE ALBUM:

Kanye isn't creating a new sound, he's doing a genre that already exists, and he's doing it to a shitty degree..

If you thought this album was good because of the way it sounds, goto the proper genre this album belongs in (not Hip-Hop) and check out some of THEIR established and talented artists (yeah every genre has good artists face it).  You will be amazed, and come back to this thread saying how this album sucks.

People have already been doing this shit and to a higher degree, but for some reason these fans haven't looked outside of Hip-Hop to hear it, and they think this is some new and skillful shit!

Before putting this album to the garbage, be sure to hear Wayne on "See you in my knightmares" at 2:52 and 2:54.  :laugh:

If this was anyone other than Kanye West (or if this was the first album Kanye did), do y'all think this album would get the same amount of hate? I love every Kanye West album, but I like especially like how he goes against the grain on this one (it's fresh, like when Outkast/Andre threw a curve ball w/ "The Love Below"/another classic to me).
but imo, just cause its fresh and against the grain doesn't always equal quality..i find ppl are 2 quick 2 jump on anything "fresh" or "creative" (which this isnt) even if it sucks..The difference between this and the Kast 1 is that the Kast 1 was dope..

ye u cant be comparing what outkast did to throwing a voice changers on and makin some stupid shit
real talk

^using auto tune and singing on a whole album is far from having a vision or expanding the music; it's a cheap way out of selling records because kanye saw auto tune/singing (1 or both) work for T-Pain, Wayne & T.I..decides to make a fuckin full album of it ::)

plz don't ever compare Kanye to 3Stacks

Very good...there's hope for you yet 8)

I have zero interest in listening to this album.  It's amazing how much worse each Kanye album gets.  How do you go from College Dropout to an album of autotune and fucking wack features?  Kanye is talented as fuck but goddamn the directions he's going with his albums is retarded.  I hated his last album, couldn't even make it through the whole thing.

I know I'm bumping this thread from page 2, but I had to let my peoples know.  This album is truly on some fresh different shit.  But like most of you said, that don't really mean a good thing.  I guess thats Kanye being Kanye again.  I definately give him props for doing his own/different thing, but it ain't really my thing.


Oh yeah, the track with Wayne is slammin......





....Cuz Kayne has captured the sound that Wayne strives for now and days.  Kayne should produce Wayne's next album with this same sound.  Then Wayne may sell a milli 20 minutes after the album is releases (since that's what the young dudes like).

I gave this another chance, since I thought that I was just hating on it before I even listened to it because of the auto-tune and all the bullshit he said. With that being said I found myself keeping only 5 tracks: Welcome To Heartbreak, Amazing, Heartless, Love Lockdown and Coldest Winter. The rest is trash.

Kanye remains an amazing producer, that Welcome To Heartbreak beat gives me chills.

Pretty disappointed with this album.  I give him credit for wanting to try something different but the auto-tune on the whole album is not for him.  "Heartless" was the only song worth listening to.  Trey Songz' verion of "Love Lockdown" > Kanye's version.

Unfortunately, like the rest of his albums, I see myself getting tired of this quickly.

^^^^ this is not even a question of this being hip-hop or not ... I listen to different kind of music aswell ... this autotune thing is just wack whether it is rap, rnb , pop .... the mainstream rap music has been so predictable and has just followed so blindly  stupid trends for 8 years + ... 1st it was these crossovers songs with RNB artists, then the club bangers , then these stupid D4L , Ying Yang Twins/ crunk meaningless type of songs and now autotune ... of course the artists are not the only to blame (read labels , radios and others type of medias..) but in this case I HIGHLY doubt that a successful artist like Kanye was forced to make an autotune album

Kanye isn't creating a new sound, he's doing a genre that already exists, and he's doing it to a shitty degree..

If you thought this album was good because of the way it sounds, goto the proper genre this album belongs in (not Hip-Hop) and check out some of THEIR established and talented artists (yeah every genre has good artists face it).  You will be amazed, and come back to this thread saying how this album sucks.

People have already been doing this shit and to a higher degree, but for some reason these fans haven't looked outside of Hip-Hop to hear it, and they think this is some new and skillful shit!

FUUUUUUCK OUUUUUUUTTA HERE.

good effort from kanye i think, although i defo prefer more upbeat happy stuff from him...

fave track is probably robo cop
