    I have never listened to this guy's music after his first album. Didn't rate it so never bothered since.

    If I were to go back and try again, what would you lot say is his single finest album?
    MBDTF imo. College Dropout a close second.

    What about it didn't you like?

    The first one imo, all of the first three are good though. I'd say give Yeezus a try before writing him off.

    He's also produced loads of tracks for other people that are really good but I think I've seen you post on Hip-Hop before so you've probably heard most of them.

    I can't honestly remember what I didn't like about it, it was over a decade ago, tbf.

    Never knew he produced Nas' Poppa Was a Playa...

    I really enjoyed the whole thing. Ye's flow was off on a few songs but other than that, I thought it was great.

    6/10 after a fair few listens.

    Some of the lyrics arent just poor, they're cringe :/
    Wolves in its current state is ****.
    Famous could have gone from good to great of Swizz Beatz would just shut the **** up. He just talks **** over an otherwise good outro.
    I Love Kanye, Freestyle 4, Highlights and Low Lights are flat out terrible


    Real Friends, No More Parties, ULB, FSMH1 and FML are great though. And Wolves if the leaked version is the "fixed" version.
    They aren't even songs

    I'm on my first listen through, what does everyone think of TLOP? Boards like hhh and /mu/ seem to be giving generally positive reviews so far. Ultralight Beams is the first track I've heard so far, it's really really good.
    did you buy it?

    I like No More Parties in LA as well, it sounds like Kanye back in day

    6.8, can't get through it all in 2 attempts, I've had 2 skip a few songs or 2 (I hate doing that cos you can miss gems, but I genuinely couldn't tolerate it them) heard a few tracks I'd put on loop, so yea decent but often trying too hard to be different, but that's just Kanye

    I don't seem to share popular opinion as I really like 808 and Heartbreak (love the heavy use of autotune), Graduation, little bit from MBDTF (which Rolling Stones ranked as his best) and of course Watch the Throne. And i''m really digging The Life of Pablo, its so raw and feels disjointed, when the song gets really good he cuts to something completely unrelated and ive read that its to showcase how hes in a state of confusion, And if its true then thats truly amazing as he's making music for himself rather than the audience, if its trye that is.

    Cool, thanks for your input and reminder; I still haven't got round to listening to any of it!
