Poor.
Two or three songs are good.

I've listened to Love Lockdown, Welcome to Heartbreak and Paranoid and they're all pretty solid, very catchy and well produced. But there is absolutely no diversity between the songs, and I couldn't stand a whole album in this one style.

The only thing I really liked about Welcome To Heartbreak is that it had Kid Cudi

I've only heard Love Lockdown, it wasn't very good either, way overdone. I really liked KanYe's first two albums, but Graduation was such a dissapointment, I'm not sure whether I'll bother to check this out or not.

I wouldn't.
It's not rap/hip-hop at all.

It all sounds like Love Lockdown.


BUT, if it makes it any better, KanYe's next album will be Rap/Hip-Hop again.

I voted poor. I've liked everything Kanye has put out before, but all the songs sound exactly the same to me on this.

You know what, i used to fucking despise Kanye but i found myself listening to this and enjoying it! Life is crazy sometimes.
It's not a massively consistent album by any means and as previously mentioned it is largely the same style throughout but there's no doubt some tunes here. Paranoid's still my fave, Love Lockdown and Robocop are highlights too.
Gets an average from me and thats a victory in my eyes.
