the only tracks I'm really fuckin' with are "Welcome To Heartbreak", "Heartless", and "Love Lockdown"... "Amazing" was ok but could have been better, the rest really ain't me

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.

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

The original is haunting..

hook it up then :) haven't heard it yet...

i hate to go against you guys, but i really enjoyed this album. it's nothing like the kanye we're used to, but i think it's really catchy and well produced.

i have this album in my rotation, go figure.

01 - Say You Will
02 - Welcome to Heartbreak (feat. Kid Cudi)
03 - Heartless
04 - Amazing (feat. Young Jeezy)
05 - Love Lockdown
06 - Paranoid (feat. Mr. Hudson)
07 - RoboCop
08 - Street Lights
09 - Bad News
10 - See You In My Nightmares (feat. Lil Wayne)
11 - Coldest Winter
12 - Pinocchio Story

Much better.

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

^ :o

Streetlights is one of the best songs off that album!

i agree with Say You Will & Bad News; they were pretty terrible.

this album is horrible imo ... I have no interest in listening autotune ... and please don't bring that " it's an innovative and fresh album" argument because this is nothing but a sell out move ... at least now the music is definetely on line with the character : a joke

to each his own. I'm sure coming from a hip hop purist frame of mind, this isn't appealing at all.

^^^^ 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.

i agree with this, and i havent listened to the album, nor plan to, nor listened to the last one
