Kanye West - 808s + Heartbreak

Any other Kanye fans on here? The album comes out Nov. 25 (two days before my birthday)

Quote:
Attention, freeloaders: in the last two days Kanye West has leaked two songs off his upcoming album 808s and Heartbreak. At this rate, we'll have the whole record for the taking -- in glorious, radio-rip-quality streaming audio before the album's scheduled debut, Nov. 25.

The latest track to surface is Coldest Winter, an emotional piece inspired by the death of West's mother Donda late last year. (And, according to reports, it's the only song on the album West wrote about his mother. He has said the rest of the songs are about "someone else" -- which we're guessing is either an ex-girlfriend or, given one of the track names, RoboCop.) Coldest Winter features thunderous tribal drums, a sample taken from Tears For Fears' Memories Fade and West belting it out with a little help from his new BFF, Autotune. (Don't let our snark fool you; we think this song is good stuff.)
Amazon.com's description:

Quote:
The ten-time Grammy AwardŽ winning musical phenomenon, rapper, producer, and now singer embarks on a new musical journey taking his audience to new heights. Kanye West returns with his fourth album 808s & HEARTBREAK. His highly anticipated new album set for release on November 25th, featuring the heart pounding first single LOVE LOCKDOWN which premiered live for the first time on the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards. LOVE LOCKDOWN quickly exploded at radio with the video premiering nationwide on the Ellen Degeneres show. "Heartless," the second single, is next up to hit the airwaves further amplifying the story behind the musical direction for 808s & HEARTBREAK.

Re: Kanye West - 808s + Heartbreak

All of the songs I've heard so far have sucked.

You're not a singer, Kanye.

Re: Kanye West - 808s + Heartbreak

I've heard the album was going to be very experimental, but with Kanye you never really know what that means.

Re: Kanye West - 808s + Heartbreak

I don't like that one (Love Lockdown).
Too much R&B, not enough hip hop.

Re: Kanye West - 808s + Heartbreak

Alright, I don't listen to hip hop and have not ever knowingly heard any Kanye, but, dude, I am listening to Love Lockdown, and the higher notes when he says 'lockdown' I find pretty laughable.

That being said, I do give him props for the whole "George Bush hates black people" thing. I love it when people go crazy on live TV. Its may favorite.

Wow, really? I haven't gotten it because I didn't like the few songs I heard. You might have just convinced me to get it

I am tell you, if you like the singles, you will love the album. if you don't like the singles, don't get it. It really is that easy.

But yeah, I would totally recomend it, I am listening to it right now...again.

Re: Kanye West - 808s + Heartbreak

I saw Kanye live a couple of years ago, he was good fun. I don't mind a bit of hip hop here and there but I struggle to listen to a full album of any hip-hop, even if it's an artist I like (Kanye, Missy Elliot, N.E.R.D.)
