Nah, I love Yeezus as is. Love the beats, love the lyrics. Love this too, but they’re very different albums. Kind of getting sick of people making silly comparisons with every piece of murky hip hop.

I don’t understand your criticism of Heard em Say or Crack Music feeling dated because of the artists they feature. Heard em Say just sounds great, period. If he wasn’t singing well it’d be one thing, but Levine fits the song. As for Crack Music, Game is hardly on the track. He literally says 9 words. How can his presence be a negative?
As for the rest of graduation, it has some really good tracks and a handful of great ones, but that puts it low on the Ye totum poll, to me. I don’t feel Big Brother at all; straight cornball. Champion has a terrible beat, and The Glory/Everything I am are pretty dull in 2014. (Homecoming is too, tbh)
Late Registration should be #1, but Graduation is in its right place.
1. Ok Computer
2. In Rainbows
3. Kid A
4. The Bends
5. Hail to the Theif
6. King of Limbs
8. Pablo Honey
Yes!! That song is sonic ambrosia.
I love this band.
Shoegaze has Loveless, but that’s kind of different.
To me, Illmatic is definitely the best rap album of it’s time and really of the mid 90s, but the best albums of today are just as good in different ways. Yeah, there are some guys that are fully going after that Illmatic sound, but for the most part Hip Hop is constantly changing and expanding in exciting ways. If “Illmatic” is synonymous with hip hop perfection, then I know a couple albums that could use it as a subtitle.
