Kanye West - 808s & Heartbreak (2008)

get it if you like: lupe fiasco, lil wayne, justin timberlake.

808s & heartbreak is a change of style for kanye west, a departure from his previous albums and well-known production style. i was expecting another graduation (kanye's previous record) and was surprised by this change of style, which felt right for someone so egocentrical and narcissistic as kanye, the album is really different from the current mainstream sound, yet appealing and surely destined to be a commercial success. i love this kind of record, mainstream ready and with enough artistic value.

  1. Wow, I'm really digging this album so far. Much different direction indeed.

  2. I don't like it. Graduation was way better. He uses auto-tune too much on this album.
