Not gonna rate it yet cos I've only listened to the leak twice, but holy shit first impressions, this album is incredible.

He took my favorite parts of Cherry Bomb (Fuckin Young/Perfect, Find Your Wings) and just made a whole album of that. It's honestly just beautiful.

By far his best album. It's crazy to listen to this and then listen to Bastard, the progression is astounding.

Top 10 album so far this year, dunno where it ranks just yet, we'll find out in subsequent listens.

Sampha must have the same taste in music as me, as all of the influences for this album are from artists I absolutely love. Sampha does enough to ensure that this album doesn't sound like a cut and paste of the best Alt RnB has to offer, instead the album sounds wholly his own.

Best Songs: Plastic 100°C, Blood On Me, (No One Knows Me) Like the Piano, Reverse Faults (could literally cut and paste this beat onto LP1 and I wouldn't even notice), Timmy's Prayer

Holy shit I did not expect to love this as much as I did. Syd's voice fits soooo well over these dark, dreamy trap beats. I prefer this over her stuff with The Internet for sure, but that is mainly down to personal taste.

Best Songs: Shake Em Off, Know, No Complaints, All About Me, Body, Over

Worst Songs: Drown In It

Completely re-writing my review because my opinion changed so much.

This is by far Kanye's worst album lyrically. Most of time it's bearable, but then he comes through with just some dumb shit that originally put me off the album a little. However, I've learned to look past that and focus on the production which is on par with his best work, sometimes even exceeding it. This album truly sounds like nothing else.

Best Songs: On Sight, New Slaves, Hold My Liquor, Blood on the Leaves, Guilt ... read more
