    808's and Heartbreak (New Kanye West)

    Post by atcg on Wed Nov 12, 2008 10:54 pm

    I've been a bit uneasy about this one. It's coming out in a week or two. I don't care what you say, Kanye's first three albums were some of the best to be released in recent times. This one, I'm not so sure. I've heard about six songs from it from the stuff posted online and I'm so mixed on it. Love Lockdown is sick. A lot of the other stuff sounds really cheesy. I'm not a fan of the autotune, but strangely enough, his lyrics are still something I can identify with. He's not bragging about cars I've never driven. He's not talking about killing people he's never killed. For the most part he's talking about heartbreak and depression (can't I relate HA).

    Anyone else excited about the album? If reviews are good and I'm out, I'll probably buy it. If not and even if it gets slammed by reviews, I may still give it a download.

    Weren't you the one that made fun of me for having Kanye West in my sig a while back. I heard Love Lockdown before and I don't like it (maybe it will grow on me) but Heartless is a little better.
    The only song I ever remember liking of his is Stronger but that song got old fast.

    Heres at link to mtv taking about the new cd:

    It says T-Pain might be in it.

    He may be cocky, but I read a blog on HipHopDX which was pretty convincing. The guy was basically comparing his innovation now to The Chronic back in the day. I respect the guy for not doing with every other rapper out there is doing, but like Dr. Dre I've always liked him more as a producer than a rapper. That being said, like the guy in the blog said, if you don't like what he's doing, go ahead and try to stop your favorite producer from trying to copy it later.

    wtf I keep trying to fix the link but it keeps looking like that. I always hear about Dr. Dre but I don't even know any of his songs.

    No one ever talks about him, his music is never on the radio, he was never on a box of cereal.

    His voice doesn't ring a bell. I was listening to a bunch of his songs and I could say without looking how it was featuring so I knew which one he was but I can't say he sounds familiar.

    The album is streaming on his myspace now. I'm only halfway through, but I think I'll probably buy it when it comes out.

    In other news, the fact that Kanye raps in this song makes me miss his old style already.

    So I copped that jawn today. It's not bad. You've pretty much heard a lot of it and what you heard is the norm on the album, not the exception. The only rap verse is from Young Jeezy. Lil Wayne is there is he sings too. Everybody seems so shocked that Kanye would make an album like this, but I feel like it was always a possibility. It's not like he's never sang before, he song on tons of songs like the hook to Spaceship and that was way back on the College Dropout.

    Either way, I feel like Kanye is aware that his skills are making the tracks, not singing on them, which may be one of the reasons why he did use the auto-tune so much (which actually isn't too annoying).

    I think the main reason I like this album is because I idenify with the lyrics more than I usually do. Seeing as how I've gone through a heartbreak last month that I'm still feeling every day, I can see myself listening to this album frequently.

    Am I the only person on earth who thought that this album blew?

    Late Registration and College Dropout were by far Kanye's peak, unless he comes out with something better in the future. I feel like he's being corrupted by Lil Wayne's style of "rap".
