I was not impressed with this album at all, and I'm a big Kanye fan. I'm glad I didn't buy it and I have NO desire to revisit this again.

Very weak, I actually like the Kid Cudi track the most, and I'm not a Cudi fan.

New God Flow sucks, I don't care if Ghost is on it.

Ma$e.... (nuff said)

Not worth anyone's money.

This was almost a blind buy for me, thankfully it wasn't.

Only Cruel Summer I like is the Bananarama song...


Anyways, I could not get into this album at all... of course I decided to check it

out on Spotify because it is Kanye West related... also I wanted to listen to some

of the features it has on it...


The problem I have with it the most is the production... also, some of the little techniques

used throughout the album annoyed me... "clique clique clique clique"... that right there

drowned that track IMO...

I might revisit it though... but glad I did not blind buy it...

I'm still kicking myself in the ass for that Welcome to Our House nonsense...

I like it. Nothing special but I can deal with it save 2-3 trks.

Doo doo. Shit pisses me off, mayne. I don't care how obnoxious Kanye is as a person, he's still super talented and has shown that he can put together a classic. This type of garbage makes me want jab rusty nails into my ears. Catering to teeny boppers for money is the devil. And Big Sean needs to ride a Segway off a cliff.

The production is really bad on the few tracks I've heard. No interest in hearing any more.

This one gets better with every listen. Some mainstream dopeness. The production stands out more than the rappers though.

I revisited this today, and again I must stress, although I'm a big Kanye fan, overall I wasn't impressed with this outside of 5 songs.

Yeah there are some songs that really standout but then there are a few that are average at best. I just really like those 6 or so songs that really standout. I wouldn't say this is a must buy but I do rec people peep some of the better trks on this.

Kev, I guess this is your 2012 "No Mercy"........lmao If you look at the standards that Kanye has created, this is clearly gar bage overall. I like New God Flow, The Morning, Cold and Clique. That is about it for me. The R Kelly track is awful. Mase has no business being anywhere near a mic and 2 Chainz is on 3 tracks. ...Enough said
