Why is it that I can only really listen to this album when I'm in the mood, and when I do, I wonder why it's not in my top 10? Maybe it's just the cold weather and my introspective mood...

oh boy. so, DISCLAIMER:
I have a  13 year old daughter and we have an unspoken deal where she listens to my stuff and goes to my shows with me, and I do the same for her in return. So my Jeep has more of her CDs in there than my own.

You're lucky she doesn't listen to Kanye West then. :neverusethis:

I'd f'kin ground her.

Kanye West is great though.

Never actually heard him, was making a joke. I don't much care for him as a human based on what he puts out there though I know that. She wouldn't be into that kind of music anyhow.

Not the kinda hiphop I dig, but I can understand some people enjoy Kanye's music putting aside his terrible singing, the music is pretty chill.

I'm joking,  we're old. Lol.

I do wonder if people do not give him a chance because he's such a dick in real life.

i keep thinking back to the ihsahn album i listened to and i'm remembering it way more fondly in hindsight than i was when i first listened to it
i blame the saxophone, tbh, saxophone makes everything better

also i'm listening to 10,000 days, the tool album that's really pretty good for the first half with the back half being just decent

Wouldn't be surprised in some cases, but for me I just don't listen to the radio pretty much ever. Between my own iPod and CD collection and my daughter's iPod and CD collection, and her playing pandora through the car stereo, I just never hear stuff like that. She's more into pop-punk I guess it's called. Stuff that would be on Warped Tour basically, and Green Day, Blink 182, etc.

This is one of the reasons. Another reason is that people generally think all hip hop is utter shite.

Despite his childish attitude sometimes and huge ego, dude has made a few classics (which is something extremely rare for mainstream hip hop).

Ihsahn's After is awesome dude. I thought Arktis. was good but this one's way better, the sax definitely plays part in it.

I'm not into rap but I do know there are artists that are very creative.  Just not my cup of tea.

Probably me listening to Burial before it had something to do, but I'm really digging it now - just focusing on the atmosphere and the textures more than in the songwriting aspect, and having it as background music, helps quite a bit I guess.

honestly if i just start this from the second disc it's actually pretty good, but man, that first disc... why would you do that to your album
good in a different way from Pelagial and probably not as good, sure, but still good

i tried to listen to this, at least

but man, those vocals... can't take 'em, and a lot of the music isn't that awesome either.
i liked a prophet for a pound of flesh though, was pretty cool

So gave it a listen now that the hype kinda died, and I actually liked it a lot. I'm no Kanye fan although I really like MBDTF, but I quite dig this. It's a fucking mess, but most ideas here are pretty good imo.

Found Life of Pablo just a decent 6. Too many weak songs and my favorite songs here don't even make my Kanye top 10.

Also, the ugly cover, all these tracklist changes, the release of "I Love Kanye", a near one minute acapella rap, as a fucking single  :facepalm:

I haven't listened to this for a while, but it's a great album! I consider it a single piece in 5 movements.

I feel exactly the same about this album, usually it's almost tedious, but at some moments its just so perfect  :angel:
