Four out of five stars is the worst? Is that like Homer Simpson's lowest review being seven thumbs up?

Kanye West is a douchebag of the highest order. I don't think anyone will dispute that. But the author clearly lets that affect his opinion of the album. I haven't given it the full listen yet, but I've heard good things. The phrase "album of the year" is already being thrown around. My point: It is possible for assholes to make good music. Again, I don't know if the album is any good. I haven't checked it out yet. It's just way too obvious the author is biased.
 
2013-06-17 02:25:41 PM  

" The other response, however, is that West knows exactly what he's doing and that, from its title down, Yeezus is intended as a deliberately contrary, ambiguous act of provocation in a musical world where provocation is in pretty short supply. "


So in other words Kanye is the Black Madonna?

FTFA: The straightforward [response] is that West is an idiot, so mired in a fog of narcissism and self-delusion that he doesn't realise the full implications of what he's saying

Yeah, I'm going to go with that one.

Kanye gets worse with each album, but a surprising amount of younger white people that listen to rap really like this dude for some reason. Also, a few white guys who write for Grantland explicitly named Lil' Wayne as the greatest rapper alive at different points a couple years ago. That was insane to me.

I don't get it. Yeah, College Dropout was well-produced and had some decent lyrics, and Late Registration and Graduation Day had some good tracks, but Kanye sucks lyrically and hasn't dropped anything that is any good on that front since the opening to "Can't Tell Me Nothin'."

However, since 808s and Heartbreak, Kanye has been pretty much unlistenable. He could get away with being irritating if he was actually a good rapper or at least a good producer, but at this point, he's basically terrible.

Subby does not appear to have understand what he read. If he even read it. Maybe the modmins were just falling all over themselves to approve another Kanye thread because those has done so well recently.

I gathered the reviewer actually liked the album quite a bit, but clearly did not understand what he had just listened to or why it was produced in the first place.

It wasn't a comprehensive list, so add away. As for me, I have a hard time not adding stuff that I really like just because I really like it. I would advise everyone to listen to Busdriver's Roadkill Overcoat, for example, but sadly I don't think that it should make this list.

Metacritic has Yeezus at 84, with Rolling Stone giving it a 90 and billboard an 88.

Yeezus is the darkest, most extreme music Kanye has ever cooked up, an extravagantly abrasive album full of grinding electro, pummeling minimalist hip-hop, drone-y wooz and industrial gear-grind. Every mad genius has to make a record like this at least once in his career--at its nastiest, his makes Kid A or In Utero or Trans all look like Bruno Mars.
 
2013-06-17 02:54:10 PM  
I'll never hear the album but i watched his recent SNL performances and i Completely Didn't Understand It.  it was atonal, arhythmic, abrasive, repetitive, angry, and discordant.  one of the worst performances on that show, ever.  say waht you want about Vampire Weekend, Taylor Swift, the Lumineers, or any of the Clear Channel-derived crap you see on SNL but, at least they're playing a song. West's recent two songs were 3.5 minutes of garbage.

seriously, listen to Cactus Cee-Dee now.  Yeah, some of the skits are dated (but keep in mind, at the time, every rap CD was riddled with skits but the music is pretty cool.  the samples are pretty awesome and the beats and production hold up.  i guess because a chubby Jewish guy and a white guy were in at the dawn of rap they seemed like outsiders, but, it's cool shiat.

I listened to some of the tracks on YouTube, and in my opinion, this album is pretty much awful.  It sounds like someone trying to be experimental and failing miserably.

I like a good, noisy record, but this is just overly simplistic with no depth to it.  Tons of stuff like this was done in the 90s-00s during the whole "illbient" phase, but done much, much better.
 
2013-06-17 03:05:03 PM  
First, the descriptions by Ricky The Penguin and Sloth B77 make this sound utterly unlistenable.

However, were I ever to spend large amounts of time surrounded by Kardashians, I believe that I would sound extravagantly abrasive, angry and discordant, as well as nauseated, suicidal and demented.  So at least the album reflects the artist's environment.

Yeah. My roommate is a Kanye Sooperfan. He went out to the projected videos in Houston and was all butthurt about noen of them happening.

I've heard 2 Kanye songs i like, but i don't get his mass appeal. I do get that he is in a position to do whatever he likes and if you like it great, if you don't he doesn't care. I can appreciate that. I just wish he was into something more listenable.

The new flaming lips album is pretty good though, dark, but good. Skip Kanye, pick that up.

I'll never understand the hype about this guy. Maybe I haven't given him a fair listen, but from what I can tell he has very little lyrical talent. How can you be a rapper if you suck at rapping and can't write good lyrics?

I'm not convinced that Kayne doesn't pay for positive reviews, especially now that he is part of the Kardashian clan that pays Yahoo! to keep them on the homepage and calls the paparazzi on themselves. He writes lyrics like an elementary student and samples music.......wooooooo, he's Puffy pt.2 without all the money.

Snapper Carr: A few from this century


I guess I was looking at the list more like "important" albums - ones that changed the game, expanded the audience who listened to rap, etc. The Beastie Boys, Tribe, De La Soul, Run DMC (and similar) made rap mainstream. The social commentary in Public Enemy lyrics was so much more complex than anyone had used before. The other albums each helped rap evolve in one way or another.

So, that's why my choices were older.

I vastly preferred chillbient, east coast downtempo, new school asian dubtempo, no wave sludgecore, west coast grindcore, deep house trancecore, gabber, durty south screw, old school southern slamgrass, chicago sludge, acid jazz, trip hop, new school ska, florida bass, spoken word....

Smelly McUgly: College Dropout was well-produced and had some decent lyrics, and Late Registration and Graduation Day had some good tracks, but Kanye sucks lyrically and hasn't dropped anything that is any good on that front since the opening to "Can't Tell Me Nothin'."

However, since 808s and Heartbreak, Kanye has been pretty much unlistenable. He could get away with being irritating if he was actually a good rapper or at least a good producer, but at this point, he's basically terrible.


I could not agree with you more. I used to be a big Kanye fan, but everything he's done since 808s has sucked, in my opinion. I'm not even going to bother buying this latest one.
 
2013-06-17 03:54:08 PM  

Sensual Tyrannosaurus: I'll never understand the hype about this guy. Maybe I haven't given him a fair listen, but from what I can tell he has very little lyrical talent. How can you be a rapper if you suck at rapping and can't write good lyrics?


Marketing. How is Bieber a star? Why does anyone take Miley Cyrus seriously? Same deal, different moron. This one's a bit more narcissistic and pretentious than most, but he's no different than any other manufactured "artist" - he's all marketing, no talent, a useless tool through which others make money.

Bieber and Cyrus are bubblegum pop stars, people don't expect anything of substance from them, and they deliver what people expect. They are good at what they do, it's just really superficial. Kanye doesn't even seem good at what he does. His best 'songs' are just him just remixing and diluting works by far superior artists like Daft Punk and King Crimson. It's like me photoshopping the background of the Mona Lisa and calling myself the Jesus of this generation's artists.

SlothB77: Metacritic has Yeezus at 84, with Rolling Stone giving it a 90 and billboard an 88.

Yeezus is the darkest, most extreme music Kanye has ever cooked up, an extravagantly abrasive album full of grinding electro, pummeling minimalist hip-hop, drone-y wooz and industrial gear-grind. Every mad genius has to make a record like this at least once in his career--at its nastiest, his makes Kid A or In Utero or Trans all look like Bruno Mars.

2013-06-17 05:31:45 PM  

Smelly McUgly: Kanye gets worse with each album, but a surprising amount of younger white people that listen to rap really like this dude for some reason. Also, a few white guys who write for Grantland explicitly named Lil' Wayne as the greatest rapper alive at different points a couple years ago. That was insane to me.

I don't get it. Yeah, College Dropout was well-produced and had some decent lyrics, and Late Registration and Graduation Day had some good tracks, but Kanye sucks lyrically and hasn't dropped anything that is any good on that front since the opening to "Can't Tell Me Nothin'."

However, since 808s and Heartbreak, Kanye has been pretty much unlistenable. He could get away with being irritating if he was actually a good rapper or at least a good producer, but at this point, he's basically terrible.


Man kanye gets a bad wrap. My beautiful dark twisted fantasy was a classic album. Good from start to finish.
graduation was a wicked album to. College dropout was a damn fine album.

yeah he had some shiat in between. Sure some of his lyrics you cant tell what the hell he is talking about. But he is practically shakespear compared to lil wayne.

heard em say is still lyrically his best track.

best ever. Nope. I would have him somewhere in the top 10 depending on my mood.

gangstarr is always #1 though

There's another one that I'm totally blanking on from that same general time that my college roommate listened to....

Phunk Junkeez?
24-7 Spyz?
Stuck Mojo?


Nope... The group I'm thinking of did some skits and shiat, I remember one of them involved a kid with a hanger stuck in his head.  They were more like the rap side of Beastie Boys, for general rap style.  I'll have to try and see if I can't get him to remember it sometime....

Like always, he has dope beats but he raps like a god damn retard. I've heard a couple of the new tracks and it's so hacky, like he heard all the alternative/conscious/underground rappers and did a shiatty derivative version of all their styles. Dude has a garbage flow and the most shallow "deep" lyrics I've heard in a while (like a Drake that can't sing). Beats are still good though, he's a top level producer.

I didn't hear that when I listened to that album.  I heard something that fell very, very short of the mark.  Like someone wanted to make something industrial but had absolutely no idea what he was doing.

I hear that a lot.  People who haven't taken the time to really listen to electronic music and then try to produce something and the whole thing sounds like a complete mess.

I can't really disagree. Let's just say this, I heard a couple of the new tracks and the instrumental was the only thing close to a redeeming quality. I guess I hated his rapping so much that it made the beat look good in comparison. Compared to legit industrial, it is derivative and half assed, so I guess we agree.

I'm just glad my generation has made some decent music lately, I thought we'd be worse than late 90s/early 00s hip-hop (then again I did like a lot of stuff from that era), but I actually have hope that some unique and interesting stuff is going happen in this decade.

The album is phenomenal. He's an amazing producer. New Slave is genius...

What grinds my gears is that there are so many unlikable arrogant musicians, artists, writers etc.... Yet it somehow matters and is applied to Kanye, like if this were Morrissey people would be all like "tee hee he's so weird!" Kanye seems to bring out the irrational visceral hate in some people.

No doubt it is because he is a black man and didn't give a shiat what you or the media thinks. That makes him scary.

Talib Kweli recently gave an interview about how Kanye has always been the same way, as a teen he'd be taking about how he was the best dressed rapper alive. He hasn't changed much, but his honesty and dedication is still impressive.

Yes, he clearly doesn't care what the media thinks about him.  Which is why he complains constantly about how the media portrays him. Which is why he set a world record for butthurt when some skinny little white girl won a meaningless award from the media.  He's a whiny little biatch.  He's about as scary as Carrot Top.

Which is why he set a world record for butthurt when some skinny little white girl won a meaningless award from the media. He's a whiny little biatch. He's about as scary as Carrot Top.


You just don't understand the profoundness of the multi-millionaire with the TV mogul baby momma who spends 50+ minutes bragging about the car he drives and the designer clothes he wears comparing his life to a slave's.   It's like, meta.

Bender The Offender: Cork on Fork: soakitincider: olapbill: Smelly McUgly: Jake Havechek: Kanye is farking derivative and boring.

Crucial rap albums in my opinion, and I do not listen primarily to rap:

Straight Out The Jungle - The Jungle Brothers
A Tribe Called Quest - People's Instinctive travels and the Paths of Rhythm
Ice T - O.G. Original Gangster
The Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique
De La Soul - 3 Feet High And Rising
Public Enemy - Fear of a Black Planet
The Geto Boys - The Geto Boys
N.W.A. - Straight Outta Compton

I would add :

Run DMC - Raising Hell
Eric B. and Rakim - Paid in Full
Nas - Illmatic
Tupac Shakur - Me Against the World and All Eyez on Me
Outkast - ATLiens and Stankonia

Can we throw in mebbe Pharcyde Bizzare Ryde?

needs more EPMD and Wu-Tang.


Slick Rick (The Great Adventures of Slick Rick) and LL Cool J (could be a few albums) need to be on the list. Maybe some Big Daddy Kane as well.

Tech N9ne - Sickology 101

LewDux: Madbassist1: LewDux: Which his peers he disrespected?

Even adding words to that doesnt make it make sense. Do your own research.

It's OK, you can't win every argument


No seriously, do your own research. Off the top of my head:
Taylor Swift, Jay Z, Justin Timberlake, Anyone else who ever made a music video, Anyone who ever preceded him at a music festival.

fark dude, use google.

That was farking easy. Next time, seriously. Do your own farking research, lazy-ass.

STRYPERSWINE: Does he sing and/or play an instrument, and do it better than most people?  No?  Then it's a bad album.


No one cares what metal heads think anymore, crawl back in your hole.

ITT PART 2: DERRRRRP HIP HOP DIED IN 1989


you're right. I don't even know why I bother in these threads. the demographics of the average farker is just too far beyond trying to reason with when it comes to explaining kanye or similar artists.

/HURRR I LIKE ALT ROCK, KANYE HAS AN ATTITUDE


Typing HURR in all caps is a red flag that warns any potential reader that your post is better off ignored. Please don't resort to that
