The first half of the album sounds nothing like the second half along with the filler track in the middle that switches up how everything sounds.
I meant it more on a song by song basis rather than the whole album. Still... I didn't like it.

YOU HAVE TO LIKE IT, I COMMAND YOU.
or something.

Idk I feel like with this album, a lot of people either love it or hate it and I haven't heard many people say "It's okay."

For some reason I feel like he is insulting my intelligence with this album. I still like his last album, though.

The most arrogant thing a human being can say.

Just because Kanye's trying a new style with this album doesn't mean he's dumbing down his music or whatever wacky theory you seem to believe.

The album just really pissed me off. I'm convinced now every release of Kanye's is his attempt to see what he can get away with. This is the polar opposite of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Where that album was huge, layered, extensively advertised, had multiple covers, and was generally just as overdone as possible (don't get me wrong...I really liked it) Yeezus is sparse, minimal, there is NO cover art, the advertising was minimal, and it is generally as monotonous as can be. The whole time I felt like he was saying to himself "well I got away with big...I can do whatever the hell I want and people will eat this **** up"...and I kind of felt insulted by the whole thing.

His last album was good, but honestly the guy just makes me mad now. I think I'm done with him.

i actually think he is consciously doin that. you see the clothes he just put out? like plain whtie shirts for $100+ hes just seein how far he can go and how dumb fans will be

This is exactly my point.

Hence... He is insulting my intelligence.

I think he's also saying **** no one says and that it has nothing to do with you.

yea i know i was agreeing but i also just dont think hes real talented as a rapper. i get what your saying and was agreeing

not feelin the survivor guilt stuff from kanye and jay either. after someones been super rich and famous for too long i usually give up on then cause their perspective changes too much and they water their content. i think im at that point too with kanye and jay if i wasnt already
