3 1/2 stars is such a cop-out review.

Still, I was disappointed that they gave kanye another 3 1/2 stars of "I don't really get this, but its probably going to make me seem out of touch if I totally trash on it". b, 21b, 21b, 21I mean, even 3 stars is a definitive mediocre. 4 stars is a firm endorsement. 3 and a half? I just seems like the reviewer couldn't make up his mind. b, 21b, 21b, 21Plus, this is clearly a 2 star album. Who would've thought that love lockdown would be the most completely thought out song on here. Its just a rambling mess. b, 21b, 21I'm not really mad at dude for releasing it though. I mean, it seems very with the times to just dump out whatever you feel like at the moment onto the public. I just feel like kanye was one of the last really album oriented artists out there today. b, 21b, 21Even when I saw it at target today, I wanted to pick it up. The packaging is dope, it looks like something I'd want to own. But the music is so half cooked. b, 21b, 21I'm not one of those people that pines for another college dropout either. I actually think his best album is probably graduation. So I'm already in the minority there. I'm a pretty open minded kanye fan, I'd even be cool with him doing the auto tune thing the whole record, if the songs were good. b, 21b, 21But they aren't. They are incomplete and forgettable as hell. With the exeption of love lockdown, which has grown on me. b, 21b, 21Maybe the rest of the record will to, but i kinda doubt it. Anyone still listening to it? Or is it in the recycle bin already?

  • Nickelback is one of the worst bands I've ever heard. I've been saying that for years...that rock star song is horrible, nothing good about them at all
