Well Graduation has grown on me after several more listens. Homecoming is now my favorite on the album although I heard the lyrics when College Dropout dropped. I still wish he added a new verse to it or something but the beat and Chris Martin make up for that. I guess now I'll download Curtis just to see how bad it is. :-{

Flashing Lights has become my favorite song after more listens. Interesting fact, Kanye originally made The Glory intending to use it as the lead single for Common's cd, but he liked it so much he decided to put it on Graduation instead.

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

Well after a few unimpeded listens this album definitely gets two ;-D ;-D ...Homecoming is probably my favorite song now...there's a couple weak moments (big brother) but most of it is solid. I even like Drunk and Hot Girls. The song is good too :-)

I thought it was good, better than Late Registration but nowhere near College Dropout.

Funny video of Kanye and Rainn Wilson (Dwight from The Office) playing Don't Forget the Lyrics from last nights Emmy's (the song they both have to perform is 'Stronger').

I really don't like Kanye or any of 50's current music, but I have a pretty strong feeling that Kanye will be beaten in that 'contest'.

just wanted to rub it in your faces gently :-b

Now now, I never said 50's would be better...or even any good...I was only speaking for the what the rest of America would buy and not my personal preference...

And 50 outsold Kanye over in Europe, so there ;-)
