still the best thing thats ever happened
Still love it.
irrelevant and shit now
One of the most meaningless concepts in music criticism.
half of the pull of the record of the time was the media attention around Kanye’s life at the time. It’s basically a PR experience/performance art piece themed around how much of a dickhead he is
It still blows me away
I'm not that big on hip-hop but that album but me on a huge KW bender. I know "stadium" level music is heresy around these parts, but that album is truly epic. And Lost in the World is possibly my favourite song from last year.
but Lost in the World is an atrocity
Yeah it's overly bombastic, but that's what makes it what it is.
Can't believe it's been a year already.
rick ross in that has the best guest spot on the album
When you keep having a new favourite track, it really is the sign of a brilliant album huh?
Don't really listen to it as a whole very often at all. A bit long and too many guest spots. I skip So Appalled and the Chris Rock one almost every time. Still love the overblown ridiculousness of it all though, and haven't tired of Power, All of the Lights, Monster, Runaway or Lost in the World at all.
is everyone seeing 8 of this? Dunno what happened there, sorry!
It sounds as great today as it did a year ago despite me playing it at least once a week and I think it still will in 10 years time. The sign of a future classic.
aw fuck it, here comes another spin...
Finally gave in around end of January / start of February this year and it's been listened to a lot since then.
Had it be released at the start of this year it would be one of my albums of the year.
as far as a blockbuster swaggering statement goes.
One of the finest records of the last 10 years. I really rate it that highly.
in 'Shine On You Crazy Diamond' you get 'Syd', and if you take the first letter of every noun in 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds' you get 'LSD'? If you take the first letter of every other word in 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy', you get 'MDF'.
I mean, there are a few good songs, but most of it is actually pretty terrible
i sent this bitch a picture of my diiiick
because the tracks are too long. This is incorrect. Only Blame Game outstays its welcome.
At the time a wrote "I may well be bored of it by February". How wrong was I? Most listened to album of 2011.
tbh. i enjoyed it a lot at the time.
if each track lost the padding and overproduced filler.
I stand by this assessment.
