I forgot Watch the Throne was even a thing. Threw it on there for shits and giggles.
Voted MBDTF even though some days it’s either 808s or Yeezus for me
so like MBDTF is easily his best imo but i love Yeezus so much
Late Registration forever.
After that, either CD or MBDTF, then Graduation, then Watch The Throne. After that, I don’t care which album goes where.
I feel like MBDTF is when he best encapsulated his style, I mean Fergie and Elton John are on the same song and it's a banger
MBDTF for sure.
Fantasy is his best. 808s is my favorite.
i really find that Ye is one of those artists who almost everyone can agree on a best album but favourite always differs.
Finally a thread where ranking Kanye albums makes sense
Yeezus>MBDTF>Pablo> the rest
Other than Ye they're all good to great, but Yeezus changed me. What an album.
Pablo is better than TCD?
And it’s not even close. I’m in the minority in not really being into his first few. He was just a normal (but very good) rapper then. Got way more interesting at 808s.
He wasn’t a very good rapper, he made very good music though, and he had something to say
This is bad
Why do you all love Yeezus? I’m actually asking by the way, would love some perspectives.
For me, it in many ways represents the real beginning of the end of Kanye as an interesting rapper (not as an overall artist mind you, the Teyana Taylor album for example is just as beautifully produced as the early Good Music albums) that had some real shit to say. Maybe it’s sonically more interesting to some, though I personally would also rather listen the first two albums’ instrumentals any day of the week.
I voted The College Dropout because "Through the Wire" is the only Kanye song I actually like.
I love it because it was the first I remembered seeing a super critically acclaim artist who wasn’t underground just say fuck you to having a radio hit. He could have easily done MBDTF 2 but he did the thing furtherest from it. Also I’m In It has the hardest beat.
2. The College Dropout
3. Late Registration
5. Kids See Ghosts
7. Watch the Throne
8. 808s and Heartbreaks
9. The Life of Pablo
let me see who voted what you cowards!
