orphans would have been worth including
omg sorry to do this but seriously who gives like even half a fuck what the 10 best le tigre songs are especially like right now. this question also goes for soundgarden…
and i’m a big fan normally
yeah this feels pretty ridiculous–i can’t believe i’m the only one i’ve seen so far (on here) that doesn’t like it
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.
crown of love=probably number 1.
also i think laika’s a better song than rebellion and probably wake up also
shoulda covered it in a different key to emphasize their awesome voices better
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.
