    I'm comparing because I think they have similar tones and intents, and the flaws I'm finding in Yeezus are things I found done really well on R.A.P. Music. And while that album got really strong reviews, they weren't the breathless "This changes everything" type stuff that this album is getting. Killer Mike and El-P made a challenging album full of less than friendly sounds that still managed to bang while providing insightful yet street accessible commentary on race, politics, and corporate culture. Kanye made a challenging album full of less than friendly sounds that still manages to bang while obsessing over himself while providing rather clumsy attempts at commenting on race, politics, and corporate culture.

    I know, why harp on about something if I dislike it so much? Well, I don't hate it, I just find it a really frustrating failed experiment because there are flashes of greatness that I'm having trouble reconciling with the less inspiring parts. I guess a lot of people are as equally taken with the stuff that I think is fairly weak as I am with a couple of tracks.

    Anyone else think Blood on the Leaves use of Strange Fruit was a wasted sample? I really think that song had the potential to be a game changer if Kanye would have just remained focused on his message. That sample is so eerie and beautiful.

    I wasn't a big fan when I saw them on SNL, but having listened to them now CDQ and mastered I really enjoy them, especially Black Skinheads

    This album could be an Album of the Year candidate if not for Kanye's god-awful rapping.. pun-intended. It's starts as a solid 9.5 for me until his shitty lyrics drop it a couple notches.

    i still don't know how i feel about this album. it's definitely flawed and has some ridiculously bad moments, but despite those moments i can't stop listening to it. guess that's the allure of Ye.

    That whole calling out chicks at the club on a weeknight bit. Chris Rock must be getting royalties. He's definitely recycling some lyrical content.

    Finally gave Yeezus a proper listen. Great production (standouts tracks 3,4,5), atrocious rapping and I don't mean just the lyrics. Giving it a 6/10, not a classic by any means. Honestly I could not stop thinking about how similar this record sounded to Lil B Based God in both beats and his flow.

    Pretty clear influence on "I Am a God"



    Even the concept of Yeezus being Kanye's rap god name like Basedgod is to Brandon is pretty clearly influenced by Lil B.

    Pitchfork's "The Yeezus Sessions" article is a really great. It gives you some insight into how Kanye works and how the people around him react to the way Kanye works. They also discuss the lyrics and how Hudson Mohawke literally died and then was resuscitated during the recording sessions. Its worth the read if you have the time.

    ...It's like farting. It's another dare I dare you to like this. Very perverse.
