Fuck Nazism

Edit: The following link is my response to the criticism I've received. Thank you for your patience.

A Summary of Kanye and His History with Antisemitism

2013:
- November 26: Interview on The Breakfast Club, he states “Black people don’t have the same level of connections as Jewish people… We ain’t Jewish. We don’t get families that have money like that."
- December 21: On a Chicago radio station, he stated “I ... read more

Bro putting everything Kanye has done aside, I am just going to put it simply. This is by far the worst sounding Kanye album by a million miles and back. The music is horrible. I can understand people being dellusional enough to forgive Kanye, but you have to be insane to think these songs sound good, or finished in any way, shape, or form. This thing just sucks. There is no way around it.

is this your king?

I have recently been revisiting a plethora of albums from the 2010’s for a project I’m working on (don’t ask when it’ll be out, it’s gonna be a while), and during the prep work for this project, I remembered an ancient fact that I had long forgotten about:

Kanye West…used to be…a great artist.

It has been easy to forget in recent years, but there was once a time when Kanye West was a once in a generation artist that was ... read more

Ye's Independence Day

"I burned eight billion to take off my chains". After quite a while since Donda Kanye is back and has finally managed to get out of contracts that were holding him back in both music and fashion achieving the creative freedom he has so intensely chased for some years now

Appearing in the cover in a Jason mask and with his practically naked wife by his side (something that he's been criticized for again and again) it's a provocative way of saying that he can do ... read more

unhinged, strange, bizarrely unpredictable, mixed like garbage. and full of bangers

apart from some absolutely abysmal and disgusting lyrical content, i find the musical aspect of it extremely fun and catchy; and i didn’t really expected more than this from this project. Or maybe im just a dumb dickrider, idk

this will be my final score for this album, i promise

Well, what's more interesting? Drake's shlonggy getting leaked or Kanye being an actual shlonggy irl?

Edit (72->59): So... I don't want it to look like I'm lowering my score only because more and more people are hating on this thing, but I did overrate it quite a bit on my first listen. Even though I basically said on almost every song that the mix is weird/chaotic/messy, I tried to give everything the benefit of the doubt. However, with more listens the whole project has grown off me, and ... read more

I knew out the gate this was gonna be terrible, and it delivers as expected. This was really bad. Look, I’m really trying to push the antisemitism shit out of the way with this one (which is really hard, cause he references it a shit ton on here, most notably on “VULTURES” and “KING”), but even with that, this was really not good. Produced like shit, mixing is really ... read more

Musically speaking, it's good

Let me be clear, while I strongly condemn Kanye's words and actions of late, and understand those who rightly hold it against him, but it's hard for me to boycott the music of one of my favorite artists. This guy has made me love Hip Hop beyond belief, and has left his mark on my life. I was therefore all the more angry with him, the image I have of him has worsened but if I only had to listen to and hang out with people who shared 100% of my opinions, I think ... read more

Bro released Vultures as a single while he had all this on his hard drive.

A Rich The Kid feature in 2024??? huh. And when Chris Brown has one of the more interesting vocal performances on your album, you know something's wrong.

Sooo... Kanye East & Ty Stop Sign (stop) deliver an album with music on it. And it's not very good in my opinion.

Ty Stop Sign sounds absolutely detached from reality with his Auto-tune not even matching the beat some of the time and his vocal performances being more half-baked than a frozen cake I have in my fridge and Kanye's left ... read more

Brief review: despite the fact that I cannot for the fucking life of me stand kanye, I don't have many qualms with this. It's surprisingly consistent (except the odd "vultures"), the production is mostly fire and it isn't extremely bloated like donda. I hate to say it, but they've actually impressed me with this. What I can't understand though is how kanye made something this good while being an absolute goddamn nutjob, so it leaves me to wonder how much of the music he's actually ... read more

[ EDIT: 13/2/24 | 72 -> 56 ]

I initially reviewed this the night it was released. In the review I tried my best to focus solely on the music because the subject of Kanye himself is complicated and I didn’t want to go into the history of that, nor did I want to express my personal thoughts towards him on a music review site. But I just have to chime in quickly because oh my god the past 24 hours or so have been frustrating to see.

Now, I’m always for separating the art from the ... read more

well uh.
this album is weird. it’s kinda like tlop in the way it’s completely unhinged whilst still cohesive. i feel like this shouldn’t work at all but it strangely does. it pulls off the vibe donda 2 tried to do with the dark trap in a much better way. even on the lighter songs, kanye manages to just sound like a straight up villain for most of this album. it sounds pretty cool i can’t lie but, it would be wayyy more cool if he didn’t… you know. like ... read more

I'm ngl I have no idea what to say about this. It's such a strange project, and I'm simultaneously shocked by how cohesive and well put together this turned out after thinking this was going to have the same fate as, well fuck take your pick of all the albums ye has announced and never dropped. But also, what the fuck is this??

Production is honestly really good mostly, love how bouncy and groovy it is for the most part and it's some of the most lively sounding music ye's made since 'Believe ... read more

When youre not paying attention to the lyrics, there is some decent production but a lot of the "experimental" aspects fall hugely flat and sounds like Ye tryna recapture former glory without really doing much. If you can really not pay attention to much it's some ok background music..... but you pay attention to the bars for even just a moment here and you just cringe immediately. Not an enjoyable listen outside of some production moments and cant really see myself returning to this ... read more

Against all the odds, this album actually exists.

We doin a live review on this one‼️

1. Stars: Oh man I already can see what I'm getting myself into on this one... "Keep a few Jews on the staff now"? Like, good? Okay? It hurts so much to see the brand of one of my favorite and most influential artists in my music listening history devolve into this. I genuinely think Kanye thinks he's doing something here by supposedly turning a new leaf on this subject, like his reconciliation ... read more

Why Spotify doesn’t have censor feature? This cover is ASS.
After release of unfinished scam called „Donda 2” Kanye went radio silent. Around September of 2022, he returned. He started to tease his new upcoming record „War” and he went on many interview. During many of them he showed some of his believes. In October, he started to say that he is controled by jews and showed lots of antisemitism towards them. At the time also he started to rock with known white ... read more

My expanded thoughts: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_hEp18A2kHc&t=3s

We need to have a talk about boundaries and toxicity.

Now, first of all I'm gonna state the obvious. No, not all Kanye fans are mindless drone robots who constantly berate others for their opinions. In fact, I assume most fans of him have some level of decency and just respect others no matter what they think. Is that wishful thinking? Maybe, but i still choose to believe it. However, more and more on this website, i ... read more

*EDIT: I CANNOT GIVE AN ALBUM DEVOID OF ALL SPIRIT MORE THAN A 0

I now truly cannot think of one single good thing about this album; I’ve only listened to it once around, but all feelings have gone sour as the songs dry out and rot in my mind… It’s just garbage with nothing redeemable nor anything to feel towards it but utter disgust.*

Look at Kanye going the extra mile… Killing two rappers with one album.

I’m not gonna sugarcoat this like a lot of people seem ... read more

Wait he’s not (completely) washed??

EDIT: I thought I would just add fuck Kanye. While I did enjoy this album, a ton of the bars here were extremely tasteless. So yea, he's not a good guy (also upon relistening I did find this to sound not all that good. So do take all the positive things I said here with a grain of salt)

I was not at all prepared for this album to drop today. I literally just woke up an hour ago and saw this on my feed. I’m gonna be honest, this is my first Kanye ... read more

Hi, my name is Manuel, known as just MAN on AOTY. I’ve been on this site since 2020. I have given reviews to thousands of albums and hundreds of singles. I wanted to celebrate 2000 followers with a special review of an album that people really waited a long time to hear, which was “VULTURES 1” by Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign. I wanted to make a review similar to the “UTOPIA” one of the “Mr. Morale and the Big Steppers” one. However, a lot of stuff ... read more
