iTunes Review

Soulful instrumentation and crisp beats define Kanye's second release. The Chi-town rapper used the extra cash earned from The College Dropout to orchestrate a lush, dynamic follow-up that marries pop-soul grooves and explosive hip-hop rhythms. The soul-inflected “Celebration” and the R&B brooder “Bring Me Down” showcase his seductive mix of hard-edged, city-bred beats with soaring strings. He hits heartbreaking heights with the stormy “Roses,” a powerful ode to his dying grandma. But it’s the Ray Charles sample and the irresistible thump of “Gold Digger” that cemented the world’s Ye addiction.

Your Must Have Album

One of the best albums this year. He really knows how give you a full album. Top to bottom, front to back. Every song is a must have. You have to get it. 5 stars isn't enough. T-Dot loves you Mr. West

Successful Sophomore...

The first Kanye West album blew me away. I think this album lost a little (for me anyways). College Dropout brought something (dare I say) revolutionary to the table. The skits in the first album seemed to suppliment the sound of the album as a whole, and assists in telling his story. In Late Registration, the skits seem a little obtrusive to me. It does have some outstanding songs though. This album just solidifies West's ability to rap with so much power and emotion in such an effortless manner. I am not disappointed with this album, I am simply not as impressed with this as I was with his first effort.

Well Crafted

Kanye West's Late Registration brings a prospective to poverty, education, medical care and drugs within urban existance. With carefully crafted beats, raps and skits he approaches these issue with the a diginity, comedy and an intelligent voice. Most important he never looses perspective on the most important aspect of building a good album...good music.

In the span of three short years, Kanye West went from hip-hop beatmaker to worldwide hitmaker, as his stellar production work for Jay-Z led to a major-label recording contract and, ultimately, a wildly successful solo career. West paired his beats with tongue-twisting raps and a self-assured, flamboyant personality. His dapper fashion sense set him apart from many of his rap peers, and his confidence often came across as boastful or even egotistical, albeit amusingly so. This flamboyance, of course,...
