14 Songs, 54 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

If College Dropout was our introduction and Late Registration a victory lap for a newly anointed champion, then Graduation crystallizes Kanye West's stratospheric success in 24-carat surround sound. Kanye's third album pushes his reflexive rhymes and musical imagination to new places. "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.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

what happened to the album?

last time i checked stronger was kanye west's # 2 song and the album had a different review. Now stronger has simply disappeared from the list, and all of the reviews and ratings for the album have been depleted. simply searching for stronger in the iTunes search panel doesn't bring the song up. Also the iTunes review of the album called it the "crysallization" of his status as a star but now criticizes it calling him a "fool" for what he did on this album. I remember this album was very popular when it came out and i still enjoy listening to it. Im curious as to what iTunes did to all the sales records and reviews and ratings that were previously shown here.

Missing Track

Love this album but why is it missing track #8 "Drunk and Hot Girls" feat. Mos Def?

Great CD But...

I bought this CD as a whole a year ago on itunes and I'm disappointed in Itunes once again. First, of all "Homecoming" with Chris Martin wasn't Album Only then and now it is. And also when I bought it it had a song called "Drunk and Hot Girls" with Mos Def as track #8. Itunes is selling you less than the full product and making you buy the whole CD if you want Homecoming.
