    Griselda killed it I thought, but Kanye has an awful verse with weird as f--- mixing. He ruins the song completely.

    They were cool, you still have to look at the song as a whole though, and it’s one of the weaker ones

    Kanye in the PC era was never going to be popular with critics.

    I dont think MBDTF would have got the same acclaim released in 2021

    Still miles ahead of this even if I like most of it. It was funny tho that some were really mad at some negative responses from em fans (which were , I admit, mostly without listening) and now more people that aren't seem to dislike it

    also Kanye needs to get back into an actual studio. This locker room s--- makes for horrible audio.

    Who are the ones that didn’t listen? I’ve played the album start to finish once and tried giving it another go but switched off halfway through.

    No idea but after it just leaked some people said it was trash and immediately got labeled as 'em stans that only listen to em' (which could have been true btw). But now more people say its not that good

    Just listened to it for the second time. Initial opinion is that it's trash.

    Very disappointing. Will give it another couple of spins to see is any of it grows on me.

    The only stand outs for me were Jail, Hurricane, and Off The Grid.

    Hurricane's mixing on Kanye's vocals is awful. Yet the mixing on Weeknd's vocals is absolute perfection.

    Much more likely it has less to do with the actual processing/mixing and more to do with the environment in which it was recorded. Shout out to @LasiK

    Antisemitism aside, jay electrhannukah really is one of the best rappers and I’m glad he got over his cold feet and is getting placements. Let’s hope they keep coming
