Excuse Me, Mr West


If I was forced to do an auditory Rorschach Test for 808s and Heartbreak (in this case I would have to be FORCED, probably with waterboarding), I would immediately blurt out words like: sparse, hideous, gimmicky, poppy, and pretentious. Or, if given the option of a phrase, possibly: Artist in mid-life crisis; needs a Ferrari, not a new album.

Truth be told, I haven't been this hesitant to post a Yeezy track in a long time. And Im sitting on the entire album.
Which is for the most part a bad sign, though in my heart I trust that Kanye knows something that I don't that Im just not getting yet.

KANYE SPEAKS ON 808s ON DEF JAM CONFERENCE CALL


Cop 808s in two weeks when it drops, and be prepared to either be really pissed, or really happy. Pick one. Either you are happy to hear Lil Wayne sing in autotune "You think you're shit don't stink, but you are Misses P.U.", or you are preparing a manifesto on hip-hop artists who lose themselves forever on the experimental break out album.

finally someone who agrees with me. i refuse to believe that the songs i have heard are really part of the album. im hoping that there is much more to this, or that this is just a sick joke.

the only one worth downloading so far has been Street Lights. A home-fucking-run.

Ugh. I downloaded the album. Listened. Deleted. Then I revived it from my recycle bin hoping to find a gem. Haven't found. May listen again. I really want to support 'Ye but the album screams insane to me.
