808′s & Heartbreak…

…is REALLY GOOD. And please believe me when I say I’m as surprised to say that as alot of you Kanye haters would be. Until last night, when an unnamed source emailed me the leak to the entire album, the only song I was hella feeling was “Heartless.” (Don’t front. “Heartless” is the truth!) I liked “Love Lockdown” when it first came out, but it turned me off to see him performing it live WITH auto-tune but was still off key. “Love Lockdown” is actually one of the weaker songs on the album…that and the Weezy joint.

Peep the album version of “Robocop”:

Kanye also a solid reputation for having amazing intro songs:

DISCLAIMER: This is a leak, so the track order might be off, meaning this might not be the actual intro song.

UPDATE: So, the net police deleted the mp3s. All good. Myspace is offering the album for streaming preview on Kanye’s page.

Now, while, musically, this album is good, I must say that the more comfortable Kanye gets creating music from and about his ego (which he has the complete right to do), the less staying power his music has in my musical treasure chest. There’s a “wholesomeness” in his early music, especially on his debut album College Dropout, that really sticks to your soul which, for me, is lacking on his new shit. I’ve long stopped listening to Graduation, but continue to bump Late Registration, my favorite, on every six hour drive to and from Oakland. What is it? Is it the switch in subject matter? Is it because the “All Falls Downs” have been replaced by the “Flashing Lights”?

Big ups to Guerilla Busfare!
