Use this thread to discuss Kanye West in any way you wish tongue.gif

What albums are you listening to from Mr West, are you rediscovering any of his hits, or want to show appreciation for any of his album tracks? What controversial things is he getting up to?

Listening to 'The College Dropout' this evening - where it all began! While not my favourite album by him, it does feature 3 of his absolute best songs: All Falls Down, Jesus Walks and Through the Wire. I think the album loses itself at times, but it's still a brilliant listen and a bonafide classic. Crazy to think how much he has transformed since this though!

As youíll probably see in a couple of days as I was going to start a thread about it but Iíve spent my quarantine time listening to a classic Hip Hop album everyday and I also listened to The College Dropout very recently. Iíd heard nearly every track before but it was my first time listening to it from start to finish. I really loved it, itís potentially going to become my favourites album of his if I listen to it a bit more.

First 5 albums were great, 6 was a turn, and its all been downhill from there sadly.

I would say I hope he gets better in the future but his wife's family are the absolute worst people to be surrounded by for there to be much chance of that happening.

VERY excited to see your full commentary on the album then (and subsequent albums you hear)!

I mostly agree, but I'd say the turn happened at album 7 - 'Yeezus' is a big favourite of mine. It's stupendously bold and daring and unique and for me, it works! Pablo (has some great moments), ye (very unmemorable), and then whatever this latest one was, I can't say i'm as fond on though sad.gif

Yeah I'd say after Yeezus too, that's one of his absolute best. 2010-2013 was when he was at his peak for me.
The Life of Pablo still had some great moments and looking back on it now I love the messiness of it lol, but it's so much less perfected than what came before it.
Everything that's come since has been so sub-par though.

Fairly similar, Cremey! I think I just swapped one or two around a bit :')

They definitely come in trios for me. The first 3 are completely different to the 3 that followed with their experimental sounds, and then the last 3 alternate sounds which I didn't really buy in for.

I wonder what the next 3 will bring thinking.gif
