the production's interesting but frankly i can't believe that any real kanye fan listening carefully to this is anything but disappointed. it sounds like he didn't try at all writing this one. by constantly repeating lines which are often lacking in the clever punch he intends he only weakens them further and many of the rhymes are just dumbfoundingly boring or simple (like, simple-minded). there are few notable or really varied rhyme schemes. the commentary on racism or "big issues" or whatever is for the most part shallow. the verses are so short, chief keef's part sucks (why does kanye legitimize this talentless gangster) and frank ocean, potentially the guest star with the most redeeming power, is barely present in the song he's in. i was sorely disappointed by this album. its empty of the depth of meaning which saturated 'fantasy' and it seems to me that this cat's ego has finally obliterated his talent in this case. his dull raps about wealth and the internet fail to even say anything new about them. i hope he keeps going for the same reason i hope arrested development continues even though this new shit sucks--something which was once so great must still have serious potential.

i feel like monomania is just too new to really judge in comparison with the other ones...also 'memory boy' as the third cut picked from digest is just ridiculous espesh next to 'desire lines'

well moreover there were a lot of personnel changes in the first great quintet whereas the second one had a consistent lineup and also featured a lot more of band members' original compositions. it just doesn't seem to make sense to compare the first as an 'outfit' to the band when the second one did such incredible work as a longtime collective creatively progressing as a whole....like the band

there was never a prominent "Miles Davis Quartet" and besides that the second Quintet reached heights of musical innovation and brilliant collective spontaneity untouched by the first, far more conventional one.

i like this album a lot and though i don't think it's their best that's certainly a subjective matter. but I do think the assertion that "monomania" is the best song the band has written deserves contention . i don't have another candidate and i like the track but come on

there's no way the postal service reunion deserves nearly as much press as stereogum has given it. i know this article is about more than this, but furthermore i think stereogum's been looking backward a little much as of late---do the last 15 years of music really need this much analysis and coverage? [i'm talking here in part about the 'backtrack' column...] that shit happened already. and who gives a shit if 'indie' is dead? all i'm trying to say is that obsessing over definitions and categorizations seems useless and the endless cycle of cultural mirrorgazing is frankly irritating--good music is being made and this should be concentrated on, i believe. when you lose track of this [that is, the music--what should be coming out of your stereo] then what the hell are you writing about?

i respect bob mould, like i respect lou reed or public image ltd or neil young, for continuing to play music, release records, explore new ideas and do what interests them musically even after their most creative and fame-accumulating years are behind them. nevertheless, i don't see how any of mould's post-hüskers work even begins to stand up to the sheer force, creatively and musically, of zen arcade or new day rising. i know lists have to be subjectively made by their writers, but seriously---find a punk fan to talk about hüsker dü or at least respect mould enough to dissociate albums he made under different monikers rather than lumping all of his work together and rating it. there's no reason albums of such different sounds/"genres" should be ranked in the same list just because the same artist made them.
