Editors’ Notes

If College Dropout was our introduction to an underdog and Late Registration a victory lap for a newly anointed champion, then Graduation crystallizes Kanye West’s stratospheric success in 24-carat surround sound. Like the teddy bear mascot being hurtled into outer space on the album’s cover, Kanye’s third album pushes his reflexive rhymes and musical imagination to places only hinted at on his previous two albums. Anyone can rap about cash, but Graduation sounds likes a million bucks: “Good Life” is a layer cake of silver-gilded synths that lets the listener bask in Kanye’s luxurious dream life for three vivid minutes, while the Daft Punk-sampling “Stronger” beams us into a futuristic dance party, awash in neon color and surround sound audio. Though Kanye’s increasing wealth hasn’t helped to curb his obsession with fashion brands and jewelry, he never stops investigating himself and his motives. “To what much is given, much is tested,” he raps on the hit “Can’t Tell Me Nothing,” which resembles nothing else on contemporary radio. “I feel the pressure, under more scrutiny / And what I do? Act more stupidly.” Kanye’s egomania will always be a fully-fledged part of his persona, but even as the superstar in him looms large, the self-critical upstart of College Dropout is there checking his every move.

Customer Reviews

Don't buy his singles!

Buy his album, each song is single worthy and just buying a few songs from this album is a shocking waste on your music collection. Get the lot. Heck, get all the songs he ever featured in, you won't regret it. The best album of 2007.

Ego takes over

Where has the catchiness of the previous albums gone? Kanye West has perhaps shown signs of beginning to rest on his lorels after his success up to this point. Some of the production, epsecially 'Drunk and Hot Girls', has become clumsy and un-polished. 'Good Life' seems like a weak re-heat of the excellent 'Touch The Sky' from the Late Registration album and the MC skills of Kanye West are more debatable than ever. Some strength still remains. 'Big Brother', a thankyou to Jay-Z, has strong imagery lyrics, while 'Flashing Lights' and 'Everything I Am' hold the type of string dominated production that made the preceeding albums so good. But overall it is a disappointing return on 14 tracks and will certainly not go down as a classic to be listened to again in a few years as Late Registration and College Dropout surely will.

Every Single Song:-

I Could listen to over and over again. This is a qualitly album that you must have in your iTunes library! All of these are worthy of becoming singles! x

Biography

Born: 08 June 1977 in Atlanta, GA

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

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,...
