Comments for the album Graduation by Kanye West:
The only thing that holds this back from being a 100, because this album might otherwise be perfect, are "Barry Bonds" and "Drunk and Hot Girls." Just misusing Mos Def like that? Come on, Kanye. Other than that, "Flashing Lights" is my absolute favorite Kanye song, and in my top ten favorite songs of all time. "Homecoming," "Stronger," "I Wonder," and even "Champion" each are perfect, or pretty damn close. Despite it's lowest lows, the highs on this album are so massive that it's my second favorite Kanye album, and one of my favorite albums of all time.
Despite beating out 50 Cent, this album seems to lack some of the aclaim that is shared by the first two albums in the school-bear trilogy. Despite that this album is absolutely fantastic, brings back a lot of good memories. Stronger and Good Life were the first Kanye songs I ever heard, and my mind was blown by Ye's incredible ability as not just a rapper, but a legit musical artist. Five years later, I'd have to say that Flashing Lights and Big Brother are my new facvorites, and also two of the greatest songs Kanye has ever created.
its 2007, you just graduated, travelling the world, you realize kayne is the soundtrack of your life at the moment.
I actually find this stronger (forgive the pun) than Late Registration. The singles stand out more, and Kanye had stiffer beats and a edgier sound. Much more thumpin'.
Flashing Lights is probably Kanyes best song. A lot of Ye's stuff has a tendency to sound a couple years ahead of its time when it first comes out. Flashing Lights came out 5 years ago and it still sounds like something from the distant hip-hop future.
Somehow this has become a forgotten album of Kanye's. I love this album! Key tracks: Good Life, The Glory, Can't Tell Me Nothing
He kind of makes the mistake that Jay-Z did with "Kingdom Come" -- i don't care that you've been around the world and are very rich and can pronounce french perfume brand names. Lyrically, he takes this high brow route as well becoming a bit too simplistic with his rhymes ("blond dyke" with "klondike"??). But the majority of the album holds up lyrically, just not as good as his first two albums. What makes "Graduation" is its great samples and production work, superior to the screech girl vocals and mostly-r&b mixes of prior works.
For being one of 'Ye's two black sheep albums (although not to the degree of 808s) this album still manages to pack quite a lot of punch. First off, the skits are gone. Good riddance. Secondly, Flashing Lights is OUTSTANDING with all capitals. Maybe his best. Thrice-ly, I watched The Hangover again the other day, and Can't Tell Me Nothing is the perfect Vegas slash road trip song of the 2000s. D. The man teamed up with Mos Def and sampled Can! Now, it's not a perfect album. Barry Bonds is boring as hell, Lil Wayne and T-Pain's contributions feel a bit wasted, and he has a weird moment where he cries about Jay-Z, which I guess he nearly immediately got over. All that aside, for an album that was roundly ridiculed upon its release Graduation has aged very well.
really great album. Good one ive found to convert rap haters.
