Actually this could be a Moby record. But with a better Jewellers Magnifier for a Producer.

It seems very short. That's probably a good thing, because I rewind my tape copy straight away to listen again. There's a lot of stuff in this. So much so that although there are breaks between songs, some 'parts' seem to belong to other songs. It's a giant medley, without feeling like a pastiche of 30 years of music. It's amazing. When I heard his Tears For Fears cover a few years ago I freaked, but when I heard what I thought was the Aphex Twin on the first track I freaked also. English is my first language, but I never realised that holy rhymed with matrimony! I don't know who listens to this record, no one I know has it. But then I'm a loner. I'm a loner.

Like this album quite a bit. I prefer the minimal production over the painstakingly detailed stuff like on Dark Twisted Fantasy. It sounds much more playful and improvised and I actually find myself laughing about some of the lyrics, even though they often reflect some serious issues like racism and sexism; although those issues are downtrodden I still find it much easier to engage with 'm here because of the humor and playfullness throughout the album. There's also a cynical undertone here which we have heard before in Kanye West's music, but he's more angry here and much less sorry form himself than on DTF. I appreciate the anger. Maybe it's not a musical masterpiece because well, we heard all the lyrical themes before in Kanye's work and the production is extreme, but not original either. However, the production is very good and the lyrics resonate with me personally and I would definitely say it's another personal landmark for mr. West. It probably pisses some people off but I wish there were more mainstream artists that would once in a while deliberately piss off their fanbase.

I think the album is really dissapointing. His narcist attitude is starting to annoy. At first it was funny, but come on, everybody already knows he loves himself, still he cannot find anything else to rap about. The beats are all over the place and some of them sound like they are made by a twelve year old using Fruity Loops. The only good track is Bound 2, which has a lovely beat and kinda reminds me of College Dropout and Late Registration. Guess I had my hopes up too high after MBDTF.
