    it's such a drag to listen to. bon iver sucks, chief keef is especially obnoxious; it's just a boring, ugly slog, which is too bad because it's probably the most interesting track lyrically

    so much great shit here though. love all the dancehall samples and the abrupt cuts just slapped onto "on sight" and "i am a god" that blow the songs open out of nowhere

    eh

    ohh it's literally just the cooing part. i got confused w/ the singing at the very end of the track

    this album is good but i was perplexed by ryan schrieber's alter ego passing off kanye's ever increasing objectification of the ladies with little more than a shrug

    outro to new slaves with frank floating over the top like smokey is my favourite part of the record

    really great sounding recording and some amazing moments

    sometimes there's too much cognitive dissonance for me lyrically tho

    the "black bodies swinging in the summer breeze" is the part of the "Strange Fruit" sample that always feels most unnecessary to me. why did you have to leave that in there? the song is way too trite to co-opt the lynching metaphor.

    this is the only track i could conceive being cut. shit is goofy as fuck and is completely pointless.

    its a somewhat interesting/dark track though with cheesy Steve Miller Band flourishes

    i like em in theory but it just doesn't mesh with the rest of the track that well.

    just feels like Kanye was trying to jam a 70s cliche in the track somewhere. the Popcaan hook/sample doesn't sound that great either at that speed and he didn't mix it in that well. you can basically hear Kanye hitting his Abelton pad slightly off beat.

    my favorites are basically any part of "New Slaves" or "Blood on the Leaves". i also have a soft spot for "On Sight".

    really enjoy "Bound 2" of course. i more enjoy Kanye trolling the world and exposing all the hip-hop rockists talking about how great "his old style used to be" and wondering if his "next album will be back to basics?!" it's an amazing, sentimental use of that soulful style for a pretty heartfelt track, but if it's you're favorite song on the album you're probably dumb.

    basically every sample/interlude rules. the middle of "On Sight", end of "I Am a God", end of "New Slaves", end of "Send it Up". i wish a lot of those musical ideas were they own, fully fleshed out song. especially the end of "I Am a God". i guess that song is called "See You in My Nightmares" though.

    to be fair i don't think he's done anything more rockist-friendly than the aggro def jux HARSH NOISE on every other track

    i'm talking about hip-hop rockists that only listen to Talib Kweli or at least think that is the highest form of rap music. not whether or not someone who likes rock music may like this album.

    a song like "Bound 2" drives them crazy because they can't understand why Kanye doesn't only make songs that sound like that. they think sampling classic records and "chill, soulful" music should be privileged above all other types.

    Album reminds me of the they might be giants fingertips songs and Steve Martin's The Jerk. But a lot more intense. I like it.
