ALBUM TITLE: Graduation

LABEL: GOOD Music, Island Def Jam, Roc-A-Fella

RELEASED: Sept 11th, 2007

TOP TRACKS:  Stronger



  No matter how hard you try the whole 50 v Kanye album grudge has been un-escapable for the past month or so. I couldn't help getting this album after Kanye was officially declared the winner to let you guys know exactly what i thought about this album and wheather it deserved the hype surrounding it's release or not.

   College Dropout was a decent album by all accounts, before listening to Graduation i did not anticipate for this album to be better, and i was not suprised. If you thought that this album could not live up to all the hype, then congratulations because you guessed correctly. The main purpose of this album is simply to accompany the half-decent track ''Stronger'' which, lets face it didn't deserve to win anything compared to some hits this year. To say that this album beat Curtis doesn't speak volumes for 50 cent either, and i'll be sure to listenin to Curtis in due time also.

   So why did i not like this album ? well.. the song Stronger is only entertaining with the video, i doubt many people appreciate it for it's artistic values either. I was dissapointed by the fact Cassie made an appearance on this video, simply to stand around and look pretty while Kanye bust out some rather questionable dance moves. The fact Cassie did not make a vocal contribution to this song is a real shame as Kanye does not sound very good whilst singing (or rapping) in this song.

   As for the rest of the songs, i'll be nice and not say anything because i found most of them barely tolerable to be quite honest. Lil Wayne once again shows us why he's one of Hip-Hop's most disliked rappers. T-Pain atleast got rid of the boredom, although Kanye did not give him much of a chance to redeem the song, dominating most of it making it rather bad ! Some questionable singing from Kanye in his collaboration with Mos Def in the song ''Hot and Drunk Girls'' which still leaves the question in my mind.... yes, what about them Kanye ?

   In conclusion, this album was as terrible as i assumed it would be, if not worse. Kanye bragged that this is the ''album of his life'' but this album is nothing compared to college dropout. And the publicity stunt with 50 Cent just makes me sleep easier at night after giving this album such a well deserves low rating. Kanye hogged the song in all of his collaborations, with his rather annoying and repetative singing and rap style. I expected much better when it comes to beats, and was also dissapointed in that respect. You should save your money and not get this album no matter how relevant you think it is to Hip-Hop and not encourage an album full of fillers that this album is.

Shaydie_bone - 20/Sep/07: Not as great as Colloge Dropout & Late Registration but I thought it was cool. Too bad for tracks like Barry Bonds & Drunk and hot girls Shocked & tracks like Flashing Lights and Goodmorning are just average. Favorite tracks: Everything I Am, Big Brother, The Glory, Stronger. Id rate this at 3.5 out of 5.
