Review Summary: George Bush might not care about black people, but at least he isn't a gay fish.
Kanye West is a gay fish who likes fishsticks. He's so gay he tried to turn that joke into a punchline in one of his songs and, as usual, failed miserably to impress anyone whose IQ is bigger than their shoe size. "choke a southpark writer with a fishstick"... how exactly do you choke someone with a fishstick? don't they choke on fishsticks themselves? Or is he going to hang you with a noose made out of fish? anyway, if you haven't listened to this imbecile's "hip hop album of the year" you are in forit. 60+ minutes of nothing but semi-retarded 'wordplays' like the one i just mentioned and melodramatic children's poetry! This will be thrilling for 90% of Americans watching reality TV and believing it isn't scripted. You know, arrogant fools that are impressed by the most obviously pretentious bull***. The same people that thought hip hop was an ingredient in their shampoo a week ago.
This album sounds like it was made by an extremely rich 12 year old whose parents gave him access to a professional recording studio. The beats sound AMAZING... for about 10 seconds into the songs, then you realize how poppy-simple and over-dramatic they are. You start focusing on Kanye West's lyrics and will be torn between laughter and sadness. Meaning you will be laughing AT Kanye West's hitherto unseen combination of ignorance and arrogance and be sad you ever wasted 5 minutes of your day on any song in this album.
The semi-arrogant Kanye West of College Drop Out -who sang about virtually nothing but a minor car accident he was in- clearly has had a personality change since converting to a gay fish. Now we are blessed with the reincarnation of Michael Jackson.... yeah but not the Michael Jackson of the 80s, the creepy potential-child-molester skin-peeling egomaniac Michael Jackson dangling a baby out a window for attention. But don't worry, Kanye West was able to metaphorically suck enough schlong to get a couple of WU-TANG clan members on here, in fact he got RZA to scream the same vulgar sentence 30 times in the same song while leaving him out of a verse so Jay-Z could talk about 20 year old beefs he hasn't gotten over yet.
Sputnik site moderator: "hmm is this a pop album? well it is entirely about the sound and nothing else... hmm is it hip hop? well this is not lyrically impressive in any way... but Kanye West is black so hip hop". This album doesn't deserve a track by track review. There isn't a single impressive song on here from a lyrical standpoint. From a pop standpoint, i'm sure all the songs sound nice to 12 year old girls. The question is should grown men care what sounds good to 12 year old girls? The answer from sputnik: a resounding yes! Apparently good music isn't about ingenuity and wit, it is about dumbing down lyrics for the masses, and repeating catchy 3 second segments of sounds like scientists do to lab rats to stimulate their brains. And apparently hip hop IS something in shampoo.
Quite frankly, this album is absolute trash. If Kanye West wasn't stuck in his daddy's dark twisted nutsack around the time when hip hop formed he woulda got boo'd off the stage. But give him a million dollar recording studio, put him in front of millions of 12 year old girls and men who have no spines and hes a superstar. Take your egotistical ass back to the pop section Kanye, no one wants to see you eating fishsticks.
