Overall : 4/ 5

Id Like to start of by saying if you are expecting another College Dropout then dont bother.
This album IMO is way different then anything thats being done on a "mainstream" level
Which to me is both good and bad. Good meaning we know how people are they like to bite and copycat but bad meaning some of these tracks sound just like some shit our favorite "underground" heros do and have been doing so there style no becomes secondhand "at least in the eyes of those who are just getting into them.
Bring me down" gets a low rating for the shear fact he respit his verse from "Wack Niggas"
Ill start off with Gold Digger which from what i can see is the only "radio friendly get the chicks moving in the club" Song.
Dope Ray Charles sample .
From there and like many points throughout the album it moves into a pretty worthless skit. It adds nothing to the album whatsoever and if anything it makes you want to have your hand readdy on the skip button.
The next track in line is "Drive Slow"
This song is dope banging with or with out Kanye. Paul Wall And GLC rip this to shreds and IMO if there is to be any more songs out there made about flossin they should be made like this.
Next up we have "My Way Home" there is no rating available for this song because point blank there is no way you can give this track a number. This shit is WAY TO FUCKIN ILL to suffice it with a rating. all i can say is Common> your favorite emcees mom's favorite emcee>the universe.
Dope sample usage. and of course Common. They did save a lil bit for later haha

Now Crack Music is where shit starts getting uninteresting . The Beat is pretty Nice Game is only on the hook the hook is beyond wack. Its a really good song but yet When youthrow in GAME, then this track loses points.
So moving on we eventually get to "Diamonds From Sierra Leone" straight out banger good choice in putting the remix on there with Jay-Z this track is aobut 2 things the beat and Jay "im Not a business man imma business, MAN" nuff said
Next track up is "We Major" the only reason why this song to me is a 3 is the beat. The Beat is fuckin ill but DOOM called he wants his style back.
Nas is the fucking man. We will be getting a DOOM, Ghostface collab soon but please can we please throw the God's Son on there?!.
Next up ill take on "Gone" the beat is really dope and just like "Drive Slow" the featured emcees rip the track and leave us like "kanye needs to step it up" But everything cam spits is a quotable so its pretty hard to beat that *nohomo*
"Diamonds From Sierra Leone *original*" closes out the album im not sure why this is on there other thanhe wanted to be on the track by himself im not sure why this gets the 4.5 primarily of the epic beat
"Late" is a bonus track this could have gotten a regular track posistion instead of bonus the beat is really dope Kanye actually spits something nice on here. Even the added biggie reference is dope *hahahahah* <--- the laugh from whatever song that was i cant think of it right now

So in conclusion. This albums is pretty dope. It Could be alot better, minus the skits and a few of the songs.
This definently has a more laid back vibe to it where as College Dropout had more a party feel. CD had quite a few club hits but if your expecting to be in the club shakin your ass tosome Kanye you better be happy with "Gold Digger and move the fuck on.
I applaud Kanye's Effort to be different. I Definently feel his Movement *no homo* Taking it back to the day with sample heavy beats and actually having emcees that can spit on his records "Talib, Mos Def, Commmon,Nas<Rakaa Iriscience, etcetc"
So bottom line alot of people have predisposed notion of kanye because hes everywhere you look give him a chance and yeah you might be surprised.

4/5


:-?

I don't think Kanye's rapping is all that bad on the album, but the entire thing is too Downey-soft. I can hardly listen to it and have a penis at the same time.

i give it a 3/5....what is the point of having Game on your song to keep repeating the same line? not to mention that Sai is on point, the whole shit is too soft, with that said, i did like it for the most part, it just doesnt live up to the hype....Cam'ron & Paul Wall have the illest verses on it


fave tracks:
Bring Me Down
Gone
Drive Slow
Heard 'Em Say
Diamonds From Sierra Leone (Remix)

last night i listened to 'we major' while i was lifted, and its the craziest shit ive ever heard. when i was giving that 4/5 i thought i was a bit generous, but i stand by it more now. im not saying kanye is the greatest ever or anything, but i really feel this album right now.

i like the song and to be quite honest i would have gave it a higher rating if the beat didnt sound like DOOM to me but of course thats IMO all in all that song is HOT and so is the album

and believe me i know these things im marlon jacksons ghost rider and he takes full credit for ghost writing for kanye
