Won’t be reviewing the Bonus tracks/Itunes bonus tracks
The first RAP album we’ve heard from Kanye West since 2007. I’ve waited to see where he was going with this album and it wasn’t what I expected. My first gripe with the album is we’ve heard most of the songs during Good Fridays. If you add the songs that leaked there is only 2 songs that I didn’t hear on this album already. Another thing I hate is when people change a song you’re used to hearing one way and now you have to hear it ANOTHER way.
Too many additions to songs we’ve heard before that isn’t needed (Rick Ross on Devil In A New Dress) on this album. With that being said the additions made to songs like All Of The Lights and Runaway make the songs even better than they were before. I’ve heard songs during Good Fridays that were better than most of the songs that made the album (Take One For The Team, The Joy, & Don’t Look Down)
Overall it’s not a bad album but by Kanye West standards it was a let down for me. This is my least favorite RAP album by him by far. Too many songs on it that i just find….ok.
Overall: 3 out of 5
