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?

    • You brought the man out of me, so many times, easily. 
    • One of my all-time favorite Christian rock-ballads.
    • I don't mind at all. That was the only way I could make you say, "Oh God!" without it being blasphemy. 
    • For the record, I would totally check out a "Do you want to Bang your Librarian?" thread. Also, when I first glanced at this post, I thought it read, "Do you want to Bang your Libertarian?" and I immediately thought, "No way in hell does anybody here want to bang Leykis." 
    • Agree...that sounds better. Still potential here and Erik makes it listenable.    This first single could've been pretty good with a different structured chorus so hopefully other tunes are a bit better. Still not sure its going to be melodic/catchy enough for my tastes which is generally my problem with this  genre.
    • My apologies, cob, but didn't Cody say "the only thing Atheists all have in common is we do not subscribe to the myth of the deity, god or higher power, of any kind, this is it, then we are worm food, not all Atheists subscribe to the same meaning or philosophy, we don't all believe in the same science, or anything, I personally feel as though..." Sorry if I misread, but that doesn't really sound like a group that are fundamentalist in their certainty. In fact, none of that really sounded to me how you describe it.  What does intrigue me, though, is that you acknowledge that we are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant... yet religious folk believe that there's a god out there somewhere and his only concern is whether this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant follows the gospel or not? And not only this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant, but every single other speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant that has ever existed? Of the entire universe throughout the entirety of time, all this god really cares about is whether each speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is following the gospel. Because if not, that speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is sure as heck going to hell. Sounds like the type of being I'd like to devote my single human life to.  Sorry dudes, like I say, I'm not an atheist (that I know of), and I'm sure as heck not a religious man. What do you call someone who is just honest enough to admit that I don't have a clue how we started, or why we are, or what will happen when we're dead? And I also believe that no one alive now, or whom has lived before us, has these answers either. Nor will they ever have them. No matter how steadfast someone is in their belief of whatever they believe, no one will ever be able to answer, with 100% certainty, those questions. 
    • And a small but important  update. Had an MRI scan two weeks back and just before I went in for a weeks chemo. The day I was discharged the doctor who discharged me gave me the results of the MRI scan and confirmed my feelings that the brain cancer had reduced in size, so everything it seems is going to plan.
    • I'd like to think so too, but I don't think it is. But I am always weary of what's being reported in Australian media. Are we just seeing everything from the hysterical, moronic and blown out of proportion version that the Aussie media feeds us? Or are there actually things happening outside of this country that are as hysterically panic driven as they are here? From the few other things I've heard, globally, it does seem that this variant has earned it's own little slice of worldwide panic, so I guess we'll see. This Panic First, Ask Questions Later mentality that the world has adopted is honestly an (even further) embarrassment to humanity. If I didn't have children I would confess that the time has certainly well and truly come for the human race to be nuked and made extinct. I ponder how much I hated humans in 2019. It took 40 years to build up that level of hatred. I am not even kidding to say that those 40 years of built up hatred has probably doubled, if not tripled or even quadrupled in the space of the two years since. What I think of what has become of the human race in the space of two years has no words left to describe it.
