This is probably going to be the last Kanye album i review, I wanted to review it because... well, "He made Graduation", Right?
So no, This album is overrated, And i know some people have already claimed that, And i agree. The main problem with this album is that a lot of the songs are so overproduced to a point that they feel a little empty and thin, For example songs like Champion (especially the chorus) and Good Life are way too bloated, And didn't age well at all. I know some people also hate Drunk and Hot Girls, And i couldn't agree more, Probably one of the worst Kanye songs I've heard. However on some songs on the album i feel like Kanye hits the sweet spot, That the song is grand and ambitious but not to the point that it sounds corny and overproduced, Like on the tracks I Wonder, Can't Tell Me Nothing and Flashing Lights who are all great.
This album is very hit-or-miss, It got some great highlights, But also plenty of mediocre songs.

Favorite: I Wonder, Can't Tell Me Nothing, Flashing Lights
Least favorite: Drunk and Hot Girls
