It'll sound exactly like all his other albums, but he's a musical genius, he's the voice of his generation.

Kanye West doesn't make new music. He steals other people's music, adds some beats, maybe mixes it up a little bit, and then babbles over top of it with his egotistical, insane lyrics and abysmal flow.

It's not "sampling" when you steal whole songs, or several measures, and just rap over them. He's a hack. He has always been a hack. He will always be a hack who is 100% useless without other people's songs to steal from, and computers to do all the work for him.

Spoken like someone who has never listened to Outside, Young Americans, Earthling, Black Tie White Noise, "Heroes" (especially the B-side), Heathen, Hours, Tin Machine,or Pin Ups.

If you think the drum and bass style of Earthling is anything like the old-timey covers on Pin Ups, or that the R&B style of Young Americans many tracks is at all similar to the art rock/industrial sound of Outside, or that the smooth jazzy sound of Black Tie White Noise is at all similar to the 90s alt-pop/alt-rock/electronic sound of Hours, you're hopeless.

If anyone has diversified his music throughout his career, it's Bowie. There's not a genre he didn't try, except maybe for hip hop (although you could say he raps a bit on the song "Shining Star (Makin' My Love)" on Never Let Me Down.

My opinion on Kanye and his music hasn't changed since I first heard one of his songs: If I want to listen to Daft Punk, I'll listen to Daft Punk. If I want to watch Akira, I'll watch Akira.

The thing I hate most about this kind of "sampling" (stealing a whole song and placing new lyrics or beat over it) is that entire generations now think that the artist who sampled the track is the one who created that groove. Edwin Birdsong gets shafted because, let's face it, the whole reason the Daft Punk song is so catchy and good is because they stole the main hook from a better artist and presented it as a "new" creation without much in the way of crediting the composer.

Sampling in my day was the stuff Front 242, Skinny Puppy, Information Society, Ministry, Art of Noise, and other industrial, electronic, and post-punk bands did (and what I did in my music, as well) -- Take several small pieces from several sources, compose your own music, and use those small samples as part of a collage of sound to enhance an otherwise-original composition. Nothing more than 3 seconds, often just sounds or spoken lines from movies, and absolutely none of this "take four measures from someone else's song and loop it" stuff.

Then you get this from modern artists like Timbaland:

Sampling in my day was the Led Zeppelin and Beach Boys
