808s & Heartbreak

Postby thedude » Thu Nov 20, 2008 11:26 pm

Kanye's new album drops next week. I really do not know what to think about it. The songs are mostly sad songs about him breaking up with his girl friend.

...And oh, it is all Auto-Tune.

All the songs are up on YouTube. I gave them a listen yesterday. There's some good stuff on there, but the Auto-Tune is a bit much in that large a quantity. Few songs I remember liking are Heartless, Amazing, and Tell Everybody You Know...

Amazing and See You in My Nightmares are probably my two favorites.

The Nightmares track is the same one I thought was called Tell Everybody You Know. That and Amazing were definitely the two that stuck out, aside from Heartless, to me. Most of the rest was meh.

I gave all the songs a listen about a week or two ago and the only one I kept for my Ipod has tell everybody that you know. Not a big fan of the auto-tune. Some songs I like in auto tune but I can't take too much. I know kanye is going for something different here but I sure miss his older stuff. I would of liked it much more if it was a mix of some of this auto tune and some of his other style as well. From what I heard I like Heartless, tell everybody that you know the most and Amazing is not bad either. I would give it a 3/5 just for trying something different and trying something different.

i like welcome to heartbreak, heartless, paranoid/anyway, amazing, tell everybody that you know. the rest is just too slow/singy for me. i thought i was going to hate this album entirely because i wasnt too big a fan of this direction, but kanye rarely puts out complete garbage so i guess i should have had some faith in him.

also, there are some rumors that he will release Good Ass Job as a "regular" album next so i dont think this was a permanent move for him.

Production is good, but otherwise this gets a big "meh" from me. And what's with all this vocoder/autotune crap? It's everywhere. Worst thing to happen to music since...well, I don't know when, but since a while.

I don't mind it sometimes as an effect, but it sucks when it's overused or even worse, used to mask something.

Ludacris Theater of Mind also drops than.
I am hoping for some more awesomeness from LUDA.
