I'm not a huge fan of his. But I did hear these and I wasn't impressed.

Give up Kanye!

Did anyone see Colbert the other night? He called Kanye a "sunglasses display manequin".

Colbert did more damage to Kayne in 3mins than 50cent ever could.

Stephen Colbert could release an album better than this.
Awful.

The album is a masterpiece, just like everything else Kanye has released. People just hate to hate and one thing I have found here is that most people try to like whatever is most obscure, not what is actually quality.

Best track is definitely Robocop

We don't hate it because it's KanYe.

We hate it because almost ever track sounds the same.
We hate it because this isn't KanYe.
We hate it because he's trying to cash in on the Auto-Tune before it's out of style.

I would have liked this better if he just released it as a 52 minute single.

I'm not a huge R&B or Rap fan but I've found myself listening to Love Lockdown on repeat and I like it for what it is. Granted, I haven't heard the rest of the album.

But Love Lockdown sounds like Kanye's been listening to old Delta Blues and Philip Glass (minimalist) too much. lol Its an odd marriage of styles with his own but this song is catchy. Of course, I also like listening to Bagpipe and Drum Corps recordings so take my opinion with a grain of salt.

Why did he release the two worst songs as singles?
