    Couldn't even pick a Top 5, too stacked

    I love Pablo but Yeezus easily beats it.

    Top 5 feels strange for a 10-track album lol. The stretch of Hold My Liquor—I’m In It—Blood On The Leaves is my favorite part

    Feels very weird that MBDTF will be a decade old next month

    re: LOTR, the trilogy really is some kind of miracle, truly impressive they were able to do each book in one movie and have them all turn out that great

  11. I've said it before, but I have way too many memories attached to listening to Pablo throughout my senior year of college, hearing it on Dolby theater speakers for the first time on my birthday, playing those songs at parties, writing my thesis on Kanye, etc. to be objective about it being a lesser album or whatever. It was a right place, right time album for me and I just love the diversity of it. Feels like a mixtape in a very loose and fun way. It's a desert island album for me.

    I remember appreciating Life of Pablo in a similar way to how I appreciate the Frank Miller comic The Dark Knight Strikes Again: both are haphazard creations by talented artists, but both kinda work for me both in spite of & because of that haphazardness. (Unfortunately, both are also, well... made by problematic, not great people, which shines through at times.)

    To bring this back on topic, Pablo also shares that quality with the Star Wars prequel trilogy for me.

    See I’m in It makes my ears bleed, but those other two tracks are the only ones I go back to. With Pablo there’s 5+ tracks that I keep in regular rotation when I’m in the mood for KW...which is very rare these days.

    The Pablo tour was one of the most unique and crazy shows I ever went to

  15. Selfish, but I feel very fortunate I got to see that tour before his breakdown.

    Yeah I feel ya. It's ok for us to feel that way and also realize and recognize all that happened afterwards.

    I'd be lying if I said that music (and the music that came before it) didn't mean the world to me. Still does sometimes, even if I wrestle with it and ultimately revisit it less. Just feels good knowing I'm not the only person who struggles with that.

    It's really tough, him and his music have meant a lot to a lot of people for a long time, a lot of people in this thread for sure. Hard coming to terms with what he's become and what he stands for now.

    I think the Hobbit movies get more hate than they deserve. They’re not great but they’re also not terrible either. They’re just ok.

    Dude put on two of the best shows I’ve ever seen which has led to some of my fav pictures I’ve ever taken.

    Pretty sad what he’s become but part of me cant say I’m that surprised tbh.

    gotta quit saying “become” when there’s no indication he hasn’t always been this way

    Even by the most generous assessments he's always been "problematic".

    I think College Dropout is a pretty good indication that he changed in some regards

    Always do the right thing. Supporter

    I think it's reasonable to say that we collectively excused a lot of horrible elements of his, particularly his misogyny and hypercapitalism, because we liked his music and he was cool in other regards, and that his embracing of Trump and hard right wing ideology is predictable in hindsight but still not something most saw coming. Especially considering the politics of his pre-Pablo music.

    "BILL COSBY INNOCENT" is where I couldn't justify taking in his art/celebrity the same way any further.

    The 48 frame rate makes the entire thing just look so distractingly off

    The key scenes from the book were probably the most well done — Frodo vs. Gollum and Frodo vs. Smaug
