I think MBDTF is a mess of an album but its charm kind of lies in that as it feels like a focused look into manic depression on the most histrionic of levels. It's tasteless and grandiose to the point of riding off the rails but I think it's the commitment to that vision that holds it together in some weird way.
that makes a lot of sense. I think I have a particularly low tolerance for the tasteless bits so I never really appreciate it as a polished tasteless package
seeing as all the other ratings are 3 or 4 its not hard to accept them I guess
MBDTF is a case where the sum is more than the parts. While I do like a lot of the songs on it, it's the album as a whole that's in that high 3 to mid 4 star range.
CD - 7.5/10
LR - 9
G - 4 (the hits don't go with me, Stronger makes me wanna kill myself)
808s - 3 (because I fuck with Love Lockdown, Amazing and Say You Will)
MBDTF - 10 (It might go down with the years, because I haven't listened to it back-to-back in sometime)
WTT - 8
Y - 10 (Love it)

Yeezus simply didn't connect with me at all beyond a couple tracks. If MBDTF was Kanye teetering on the edge of madness then Yeezus was a full-on leap and I just wasn't there with him on that one. I like the attempt at off-the-cuff abrasion but I dunno, most of it just left me feeling cold.
Can't. Haven't listened to them. I don't usually go into mixtapes unless...
1. I want to hear more from an artist but they only have a small studio discography.
2. The artist is well known but has yet to drop a studio album
3. There's a lot of praise for a particular mix tape
4. The mixtapes are better than the albums (Big Krit)
As for the green text. I've covered entire (studio/album) discographies from 50+ rappers. Yes I still listen to mix tapes and discover new artists through them just not as often and not Kanyes. You happy with that answer?
fuck off bandwagon hopper
