Late registration is the big brother of college drop-out, It feels more mature and It is less disperse.

Probably my favorite Kanye album. The rich soul and depth of the lyrics, instrumentation, samples, and production. The catchy and impressive hooks and guest features. Even some of the skits are enjoyable. They contribute to the overarching theme of education, picking up where The College Dropout left off, and also add a lighthearted and comical break between some of the darker and more serious tracks. This is one of his most introspective and personal records, and it’s the first time he started showing more of an emotional vulnerability in his songwriting. Ego and controversy aside, Mr. West definitely knows how to craft a melodic and meaningful work of art.

I have been sleeping on Kanye for the longest time. Enjoyed the hell out of his singles but damn his discog is really impressive. Getting close to 5000 points. Will definitely get to a worst to best for him at some point.

This is an underrated album in Kanye West's discography. Definitively contains some of the best sampling from Kanye's career.

I'm really loving this album a lot more. I'm appreciating the soul/RnB based sampling and the more orchestral instrumentation. The skits are still a little off-putting, but I can see how they contribute to the overall theme. Still, I think the album would be better without them.

I comparison to his later works, it seems a lot simpler and scattered in a way. It doesn't seem to be a cohesive statement on anything, at least to me. This is only my opinion after first listen, and I'll definitely be coming back to it

Definitely some filler, but a number of very strong tracks.

Just like 'The college dropout" Kanye makes the last of his incredibly human albums.
This project, while not as great as his first, had excellent skits coupled with relaxing tracks (drive slow) coupled with sweet tracks (hey mama).
This makes for a wonderful album that I can enjoy constantly, the same can be said for CD which is more inventive with its sound.

Most people think mbdtf is his greatest album, but for me its Late Registration. Kanye said he produced it to have a theatrical sound, and it sounds amazing. This album flows together beautifully. I don't care what anyone says about Kanye, hes a genius producer and sometimes even a storyteller.
