    The auto tune is what every one jumps to first.

    My take:

    808s is an album that I connect with. It isn't about being in the VIP or driving a nice car with big rims and all of that other glam rap club bullshit. This was an album that came more from the heart than I feel a lot of his other material has. It was from an artist that was humbled by something that we have all been humbled by- love. It was an album that brought Kanye back down to where the rest of us sit, at least in his mind, and was a great look into someone who doesn't offer himself up emotionally often. That period of time was brief obviously considering his fiasco at whatever awards show that was, but for that period he was like everyone else and wrote music and lyrics that I could relate to. Love, relationships, the end of those relationships; Kanye deals with it too, and I like knowing that. On a production level I enjoyed the album because of how incredibly different it was from his previous work. I like seeing artists take chances and succeed, and for a hip hop artist to put out a record with virtually no hip hop on it was a big risk that I felt paid off. The autotune doesn't bother me at all. Normally I don't like the sound, but on that album I felt like it painted Kanye as someone who had been left cold an emotionless and robotic, and they were emphasizing that with the vocal production. The songwriting is simple, there aren't huge hooks or beats or horn hits, etc. It's about the subtlety. This is why I like 808s. You don't have to agree with me and most of you wont. It's unfortunate that it doesn't do for you what it does for me.

    I love when Kanye pissed all the rednecks off at Bonnaroo. He is a talented mad genius.

    And to make it clear I liked 808s. Just LLD is the worst Kanye song since The New Workout Plan. And Bad News & Say You Will were boring to me.

    Other than those 3 I love the album.

    Say You Will is probably my favorite from the album, I love how he lets the simplistic beat just ride out at the end. It reminds me of someone on life support just barely hanging on.

    I admit the song grew on me from the 1st time I heard it. I think the reason I dont like as much is cause I love Welcome to Heartbreak so I rather have that as an intro.

    Kanye is back! I don't give a fuck what anyone says, this guy is a GENIUS. He makes some of the sickest beats EVER, and his flow is just so great. You can hear the passion in vocals, and it just tears shit up.

    Although, even though I fucking PRAISE Kanye, I fucking hated 808's and I hope to god this won't be anything like it.

    You mistake utter boringness for subtlety. I find it really doubtful that any track on that completely uninteresting album was more from the heart than Spaceship.

    Yep, finally people agree that 808 is his best album. Brandon put it perfectly.

    I agree with Brandon about 808s, especially the parts about the lyrical content and risk taking. I enjoy Kanye's music when I am in the right mood, I just don't want him to be at Coachella.

    Also, was it ever confirmed that the VMA fiasco wasn't planned. Kanye's and Taylor Swift have the same manager, so I was always very suspicious.

    "Gone" is better than anything on 808's and Heartbreaks. Listen to the orchestration at the end. Jon Brion is the reason LR is his best record, every detail in every song is perfectly executed. IMO Late Registration is a nearly perfect pop record. The production on 808's was an awesome change of pace, but the production sounded like it was thrown together on a laptop in about a week. Also, Graduation was way different than any of his previous work and it was much better than 808's.

    Graduation is infinitely better than 808's and Heartbreaks. You're crazy.

    I mean come on, who else can sample Can, Steely Dan and Daft Punk on the same record and make it sound fresh?

    Yeah, because Addiction and Hey Mama are totally about that.

    And I guess beats don't matter, just his "I LOVE YOUUU GIRRRL" lyrics in 808.

    My point was he sampled three completely different acts and made them all sound like they were from the same pop record.
