From lstevens
Overall: 10

Top Tracks: "POWER", "Monster", "Runaway"

Ambitious and excessive, just might be the greatest hip hop album of all time. If not, it's certainly the best album of the 2010s (so far).

baystateoftheart, idk if that's true as the history only goes back to 2014 (where it was ranked lower) but my point isn't that mumble rap per se causes people on here to have questionable opinions on hip-hop. The trend of hip-hop devolving into a pop happened long ago. I just think a lot of younger people grew up after the golden era, in a time where relative to the mainstream "rap music", things like this and Kendrick seem incredible, but to people in the hip-hop culture, they aren't. This is the best Hip-hop album of all time according to this website. That's not an opinion you will find anywhere else.

MCOTho, this was Kanye's #1 album on BEA before mumble rap even existed

I'm a huge Kanye fan, but this being in the top 50 baffles me. It's not even in his top 3 imo. This site gets the hip-hop really wrong, but I guess that makes sense given the mumble rap we are raised on today.

This is a decent album. I am not a Kanye fan in general but he makes good music that I just don't understand and that is due to his artistry. The man is talented and has a vision, you can't hate his music for it not being good

He may get on people's last nerves, but the man is a genius. This record proves it. Incredible.

Can we get much higher? I don’t think so. This is Kanye’s canvas, and he’ll paint it how he wants to.

Kanye is bound to be the best producer of our time, and one of the best artists out there. In this album all of his strenghts are shown. To the intense beats, ego-centered lyrics, complex music estructures, this man was rocking It!
The highlights of this album are the obvious "POWER" with it's intense bars, then there are two colabotions with bon iver that really stand out: "Runaway" and "Lost in the World", both taking the auto-tune concept to a whole New level and proving It to be a valid tool to craft a composition.

This is Kanye's victory lap. There isn't much groundbreaking or particularly insightful about this record, and Kanye himself admits as much. His most influential records remain TCD and 808s. What this record did do is it set the standard for studio quality and recording for a mainstream hip hop album. The mixing and production work is really spot-on and some of the best in his discrography. But overall, it is not one of his more influential or noteworthy records.
