Kanye West - 808's and Heartbreak

 

Boys and girls, let me start by saying I know I'm gonna get shit for posting this, but it must be posted. This album is absolute thizz (that's a good thing - thizz)! This is much different from his previous albums, mainly apparent from the absence of any rapping on his behalf. As I recall there was only one guest artist who rapped a verse. I've listened to this a couple times through now, and I'm amazed. It's a dark, heavy compilation of songs dealing with his breakup with his fiance and the death of his mother. The beats are incredible but simple. Kanye said he was going for a "minimal but functional" approach. There's lots of contrast here, too. Many songs have a nice light sound, but, as implied by the title, this album deals with heartbreak. If you're open to something either than what we usually discuss here, then please check this out.

Not being rude or anything, and I know this is the Non HH related music thread, but you really should have resisted, really you should. ;)

Rumor has it that this is going to sell around 450,000 copies this week and beat the new GNR easily.

I think a Cliff Richard thread would get more positive posts than this :unsure:

 

 

Steady!! ;)

 

Anyways, has anyone gone out and bought Kanye's masterpiece yet? I went out and got three copies this morning just on the recommendation from riding a shag pile carpet boy. :bowdown:

Is that all? I thought for sure I'd be crucified for this.

Now, what I wanna know is, out of all those that harassed and criticized me for this, how many of you were curious enough to sample it? It's obviously a rhetorical question. You guys are hilarious!

Mate, you can't turn on a radio without hearing his shit all over it. You can't turn on a TV without seeing an ad for his upcoming tour of Australia (sampling a lot of his "finest work"). As much as we pray for a world where you don't hear this kind of shit, sometimes you can't avoid it. You really think everyone here doesn't have very, very good reason to hate this crap? What is anything it has in common with any of the music people on this site enjoy???

 

And what next? We listen to the new Usher and Nelly albums too?
