    Default The Official Opinion on Music

    Question #1 - Is the new Kanye West album the markings of a great artist following his muse and creating a unique soundscape for rap utilizing autotune and abandoning samples almost entirely or is it just a self-indulgent masturbatory piece of shit?

    I agree. It's neither. It's an enjoyable album and the lack of samples is kind of refreshing. The voice effects can get a little tiring, though.

    Listening now for the first time and while I hate the autotone as much as anyone, I'm enjoying it. It's clear poor lil Kanyeezy is depressed, probably because Daft Punk stopped touring...

    I'm sure the AutoTune will gladly take you up on that. What do you think of the album in general?

    The more I listen to the album the less I like it... But that said, I think it's his most interesting work yet (as a whole album that is).

    The autotune gets ridiculous after a while, but songs like "Paranoid" strike a perfect balance with it. Just subtle enough to punch through from time to time and keep his voice (which isn't very good) slightly off balance in an interesting way.

    I think "Tell Everybody What You Know" highlights the problem with the album... Lil Wayne puts him to shame... And it makes Kanye sound silly and it's clear that he's not terribly interesting as a performer.

    I think "Coldest Winter" is great, and the primary reason for that is that it doesn't overstay it's welcome.

    As a whole I really enjoyed the throwback nature of the album, and I loved that he is switching things up... Even if the album doesn't really have any staying power. "Paranoid" is easily one of my favorite songs this year.

    The autotuning is cool at first but it gets really tiresome halfway through the album and just annoying by the end.

    Tell me what you've heard so far, what your reaction was, and I'll walk with you hand in hand into the wonderful land of Deerhunter.

    We'll do this together.

    Listen to some Atlas Sound while you are at it... A lot of people I know have gotten into Deerhunter that way.

    I didn't think I really liked Deerhunter, but then I heard the last 2 1/2 minutes of "Nothing Ever Happened" and changed my mind.

    I just finished listening to Johann Johannsson's "Fordlandia" and I think you might like it... Just as a side note...

    That is the only song I listen to anymore as well... In the car my fiance will put in that CD and I'll just skip to Paranoid and then take it out... She gets mad.

    That song coulda been really good if he had shown a little restraint... Too too much... It feels silly.

    i think that's his best album so far. not much better than ibm 1401, but i like fordlandia more. i forgot to put it in my top 30; it's a strong candidate. really beautiful album.

    I tried listening to "Microcastle" while exercising and I had to change it because my heart rate fell to 40.

    I do like it...but I'm not feeling any like yearning to listen to it again and again.

    When you have time to just sit down and listen to an album, do that with Microcastle. If it doesn't catch you, and especially Nothing Ever Happened, I'd be willing to concede that they're not for you.

    Still, even if you don't get drawn in, make sure to see them when they're inevitably at Coachella this year, because their recent live shows have been boss.
