    Yeah I'd probably have to agree, but I also haven't really thought about my favs yet, so who knows

    Just listened to this a couple times today for the first time.

    I do like it but I feel it is all over the place. The album doesn't have much flow and is narcissistic to high hell.

    It has some bangers but not like MBTDF. Maybe I need a few more listens to make a proper judgement.

    Album of the year for me so far. Still ahead of the rest in terms of using his skills and ear as a producer. There isn't an album out there that sounds like TLOP. Brash, confident, and as Kanye as you can get. I think part of the album is the experience behind it. Following the lead up to the first release, then the subsequent updates, it almost felt as if it was some sort of modern performance art on Kanye's part. Intentional or not it's been wild. MBDTF will probably always be Kanye's magnum opus, and in my opinion Yeezus and everything it represented isn't too far behind. TLOP is great but not on that level. 8.5/10 for me.

    The schizophrenic nature of this album and how off the wall "strange" everything about it's release and it's sound was appealed to me early on but now that all of that has worn off, the more I listen, the more I consider it to not be very good. If I listen to it now, I'll only listen to the same few songs ("Ultralight Beam", "FML", "Real Friends" mostly) and as for the rest it's just eh.

    I really believe it's a great album in most all ways. It's extremely weird and the rollout is unlike anything else, but the music outweighs it in my opinion
  8. Currently my AOTY, I think.

    My AOTY as well. Being at MSG for the premier was unreal and easily one of my favorite musical memories.

    father stretch my hands pt1 & 2 are my favorites. wolves is pretty good too. i'm not really super into this the way i was with yeezus, but the album feels pretty good to listen to all around. I feel like he took that spazzy, jumpiness of yeezus and applied to to literally everything this time around.

    we've seen the shadow of the axe before Supporter

    The best

    I probably listen to "Highlights" three times a day. The album has the infectiousness of Graduation with the choppiness of Yeezus.

    It's weird, when I first listened to this I thought it was potentially his worst album. Now I think it might be his best.

    Father Stretch My Hands pt 1 is such a highlight. Wish it were three times as long.

  19. Also this is likely my current AOTY as well

    And the former thread was made by a user who left the site and wanted all his posts deleted

  21. probably the best write-up I've seen that mirrors my thoughts on the album

    I can see the midnset of that tweet, but I don't feel that way at all. I enjoy this album as a piece of music, the tweets or anything surrounding it honestly don't matter to me. I like the songs on TLOP, they please my ears, and I think the album of a whole is a great album that DOES make a lot of fucking sense together
